A fan belt, also known as a drive belt, is a belt connecting your car's engine to the front mounted accessories. The fan belt rotates the water pump and engine fan, which maintains a cool environment for the engine and its components. Sooner or later, your vehicle's fan belts will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the belts replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the belts replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today. The mechanics at Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.
Brake System Flush
Brake fluid is hygroscopic (it absorbs moisture). The absorbed moisture lowers the fluid's boiling point. It also corrodes the lines and cylinders. With the lowered boiling point, the brake fluid could boil during braking which makes you lose braking ability. Although this is an extreme scenario, it does happen in heavy braking. To reduce the effects of the absorbed moisture, auto manufacturers recommend that you have a brake flush done periodically. A brake system flush involves the replacement of used and contaminated fluid with fresh fluid. With Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 714-375-3145 or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today.
Coolant System Flush
A car's air conditioning system contains a coolant which transfers excess heat from one part of the engine and finally loses it through the radiator fins. With time, the a/c coolant becomes old and dirty. The old coolant will negatively impact the system's performance. To make sure the system is working effectively, consider having a regular coolant system flush. A coolant flush is basic maintenance for your car's cooling system. Call 714-375-3145 or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair in Huntington Beach, CA 92647 for all your coolant system flush and fill needs. Ensure maximum performance from your vehicle's heating and cooling systems today.
The differential is a car part that compensates for the difference in travel distance between the inner wheels and outer wheels when the vehicle is turning. Due to the differential's position in most non-four-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles (located at the rear and under the car), it does not get any of the star treatment the engine gets. The one thing that every car owner needs to know is that failure of the differential will mean failure of the car. To save the differential from failure, you need to have differential fluid changed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. Changing the oil on the differential is as important as changing the car's engine oil. Although checking and changing differential oil is pretty easy, you need to visit an auto shop to get a comprehensive differential flush. For differential flush services, visit or call Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair in Huntington Beach, CA 92647 today.
Fuel Injection Cleaning
A fuel injector is an electronically controlled valve that supplies the engine with pressurized fuel. When driving, the oxygen sensors tell the engine if it is getting too much air, which signals the fuel injectors to give the engine spurts of pressurized fuel. Since fuel injectors are small pieces of equipment (and the part that squirts the fuel is even smaller), any little piece of dirt can clog it. A clogged fuel injector will hurt your vehicle's performance. To avoid misfires, poor emission rating, poor performance, and rough idle have the car's fuel injectors cleaned regularly. For professional fuel injection cleaning services, call 714-375-3145 or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today.
Headlight and Bulb Replacement
To maintain maximum visibility (and keep you safe), you should always make sure that your vehicle's headlight bulbs are in good working condition. Although replacing faulty headlight bulbs is a simple and quick process (takes very little time), you need to rely on an experienced auto mechanic to handle your headlight and bulb replacement. This way, you will have quality bulbs installed by experts. Remember, it is a critical part of your car's maintenance and your safety. For all your headlight and bulb replacement needs, call or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today.
Hoses transfer coolant and antifreeze throughout the engine's cooling system (including the radiator). Sooner or later, your vehicle's hoses will dry out and crack. When you are ready for a replacement you can count on Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair for all your vehicle's repair needs.
You not only have to get the hoses replaced with quality ones but you should have the work done by experts. To have the hoses replaced by auto cooling and heating experts - and get your car driving right - visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today. The mechanics at Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.
Motor Oil Basics
Do you know the oil basics? Did you know that even some auto mechanics do not know the oil basics? In order for your car's engine to do its job properly, it is vital to have clean, fresh oil. The oil used in your car has two primary ingredients: base oil and additives. The base oil allows the motor oil to perform its vital function - lubricating the engine's moving parts to protect them against wear and tear caused by friction. The additives provide additional engine protection by helping to prevent the oil from deteriorating under the engine's extreme temperature conditions. At Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair, we are motor oil experts - we will help you with motor oil basics. Call us at 714-375-3145 or visit our auto repair shop in Huntington Beach, CA 92647 today.
Did you know that regularly changing the oil in your vehicle is one of the simplest, most effective and inexpensive ways to help protect its engine life? Oil lessens wear, reduces friction, and forms a seal between the pistons, rings, and cylinder walls. The oil also helps cool engine parts and even dampens the shock and noise of moving parts. For all your oil change needs, call 714-375-3145 or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today. We have years of experience helping drivers with oil changes and other auto maintenance needs.
PCV Valve Change
The positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve is a very important part of some cars' emissions control systems. This valve, which is usually plugged into a rubber grommet in the valve cover, is a one-way passage for gases to escape from the engine's crankcase. With time, the PCV valve becomes clogged with sludge from the contaminants in the exhaust gases. If your car has a PCV valve, make sure it is regularly cleaned and (if necessary) replaced. To have your car's PCV valve changed by experts, call or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair in Huntington Beach, CA 92647 today.
Power Steering Flush
Power steering fluid is the hydraulic fluid that transmits the power in a steering wheel. Servicing the power steering involves flushing out the old power steering fluid and adding fresh fluid. A power steering flush will definitely help prolong the life of the power steering components. Failure to have periodic power steering flushes results in important parts like the power steering pump, the seals, power steering rack, and the O-rings wearing out. To have a comprehensive power steering flush, call 714-375-3145 or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today.
A radiator is the part of your vehicle that keeps the engine cool and protects it from excessive heating. To be cool, the radiator needs to remain clean - always. With time, sludge, rust and other solid deposits build up inside your car's radiator. These make the cooling system become clogged and less effective. This in effect hurts your vehicle's performance. A regular radiator flush is enough to keep the system in shape. For this reason, make radiator flushing a part of your routine car maintenance schedule. For all your radiator flush needs, call 714-375-3145 or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today.
Although most manufacturers recommend a transmission flush every 30,000 miles or every two years, some symptoms may indicate that you need a transmission flush sooner. Some of the symptoms that indicate that your car needs a transmission flush sooner are: transmission grinding or strange noises, problems shifting gears, slipping gears, surging of the car, and delay in vehicle movement. Flushing the used fluid from the transmission washes away tiny particles of dirt, clutch material, and metal shavings. For all your transmission flush needs, call 714-375-3145 or visit Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair today - we are transmission experts.
Transmission Flush & Filter
Transmission flush and filter change is a comprehensive transmission maintenance service that involves the replacement of old, degraded transmission fluid and filter with new. The service is meant to prolong the life of your transmission. At Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair, we offer the most comprehensive transmission flush and filter service. We will exchange your old transmission oil, remove dirt, replace the filter, clean the screen, and replace used pans. Give us a call at 714-375-3145 or visit our auto shop in Huntington Beach, CA 92647.
Just like replacing your engine oil, transmission service is part of your routine vehicle maintenance. The service involves removing and examining the pan, cleaning or replacing the screen or filter, cleaning the pan, reinstalling the pan (with a new pan gasket), replacing the old oil with new, and adding an additive package. Adding new fluid restores the holding power between the clutches. This service helps improve lubrication and helps maximize the life of the transmission. For all your transmission repair needs, visit or call Val & Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair in Huntington Beach, CA 92647 today. We offer transmission services, reseal services, and clutch services.

Simply the best trained auto specialists that can be trusted to provide the best service at the most reasonable prices. I drive up from another community to make sure my car is serviced at Val and Mike's Beach Cities Auto Repair.
I have taken all 3 of my vehicles for repair, for the past 10 years. They have provided the best service for my jaguar. Helped try to drive down costs on my Cadillac transmission that gave out at 220K miles. Always a great turn around on the vehicle repairs. I have decided to start taking my vehicles to their shop even for oil changes. They have been great on keeping tabs on my vehicle health. Very friendly.
Trustworthy, time efficient, and all around top notch customer service.
Nice people that do excellent work.
Thank you! You're anazing.
Great service from everyone!
I was pleased with the service I received at V&M and would definitely use them in the future when I have various auto maintenance needs.
Excellent customer service! Stands behind their work.
Trustworthy team of professionals that not only serves my fleet of trucks but also my personal vehicles. They have never let me down over the 3 years I have been with them and this week was no exception catching future problems and making recommendations. Keeping my fleet running and me happy!!!
We have used your services for over 25 years and have been completely satisfied.
The team at Val and Mike's Auto is amazing! They worked very hard to figure out and fix what was wrong with my daughter's car. I really appreciate the care they took, to make sure that the car was safe for her, before sending it back. Everyone at Val and Mike's is friendly and really treats you like family.
Mike & Val and Mike ~ staff thank you for being so kind and thoughtful. The impeccable service with my car and in the office is #1 in my book.

My uncle Marlin has been taking his vehicles here for a long time and I've started bringing them here now as well after relocating to southern California. I recommend it highly. They have worked with me and given us great service. Thanks guys for the help and service.
They are friendly and quick. Mike even drove me home when I dropped the car off.
Always great service at a reasonable price
awesome.. fantastic crew. always feel their taking great care of me and my vehicle.
I have been bringing my car here for about 20 years now. They are honest and timely. Some years back I took my car to a competitor for service but they want to charge me nearly $1000 dollars. I brought my car back to Mike and Val's where I only had to pay a bit under $300 for the same problem. I've never taken my car elsewhere. They also off 10% off your service if your a AAA member.
Conveniently located, near my home, this auto shop provides the kind of courteous service you wish every business had. They answered every question about maintaining my older car (2006 Hyundai, 129,000 miles) without pushing me for more work. Also provides a ride home if needed, but walking is great exercise. Also gave me a discount!
I am happy to drive 300 miles for you to service my car ;) Thank you!
It has been my pleasure to have known you guys and to have received auto services from you for more than 30 years! I have total trust and faith in you.
I can't say enough how much I appreciate these people. They look out for their customers wanting the best. Thank you all. Kelly Bowles.

Love Val & Mike's! They have been pampering me AND my car for the past two years. Friday I just dropped in and they were able to accommodate a new battery and oil change immediately! Bonus, if Mike's there, it's like going to the comedy club; can't beat that!

Been going here for years. Val and Mike are the best. Great service. Trustworthy and very fair.
Very friendly and will work with you, within reason. Also very trustworthy. Said there are some things that should be done but understands that money is an issue and it could wait a little while before it HAS to be taken care of.
The most reputable automotive service I have ever dealt with. Hard to find these kind of repair shops that treat you well. I recommend them to everyone I know.
I've been coming to Val and Mikes for over 10 years now and I greatly appreciate the service I get there. My buddy referred them to me and I always refer my friends and family to them.
I am always pleased. It took much longer than I had planed but I know you wanted to make sure you found the needed repair. If I didn't trust you, I might be mad. But, I wouldn't use anyone else!
Val & Mike's Auto Repair is exactly where my car and I belong!!! I am fairly new to Huntington Beach and have already been to 3 other auto repair companies who charged enormous amounts for poor, failing repairs. I will never go anywhere besides Val and Mike's again. They take excellent care of both cars and customers!!
I having been taking my cars there for years. They are honest, ethical, and I trust them to not take advantage of my knowing very little about cars. That was extremely important to me when I was a single woman, because some places will take advantage of you. Not Val and Mike's! They don't try to upsell you. I always feel like they will take great care of me and my car and that is priceless! Such nice people, too!
This was my second time having Val and Mike's Auto work on one of my cars and, like my first experience, everything was excellent! .. their price was very reasonable and their service fantastic! .. I highly recommend Val and Mike's to anyone who wants their vehicle serviced properly and at a fair and reasonable price.
If I could describe Val and Mike's Auto Repair in just one word I would choose FAMILY. I felt so very welcomed from the first 2 steps when I walked in to the final steps when I left. I felt reassured and was told exactly what they were going to do to my car and they told me if they needed to do any additional work that they would call me immediately before making any adjustments. Very sweet people! I definitely recommend them! Thanks guys! :)
Excellent service. This is my first time using Val and Mike's and I was extremely pleased. Mike B took care of me and I was very pleased with his communication. My service was completed faster than promised and for a little less than the original estimate. I was happy with my car was freshly washed when I picked it up.
Great customer service, honest, friendly! Definitely would refer any of my friends!
Folks come from hours away for Mike's quality and trusted service... I totally recommend them, 100%!
I love getting my car serviced at Mike's! I always bring my laptop and turn their waiting room into a makeshift office using their free WiFi. They take such great care of my car, and timely too!
I have known Mike and Val for many years. They are very caring and friendly people. While running their business...they are professional, thorough, and most importantly, honest! They know what they are doing! Without a doubt, I give them five stars.
Val and Mike are some great people! They do a great job and I love their work!
I can trust Val and Mike with my older model Toyota as they diagnose the mechanical problems and repair it to my complete satisfaction. As a Senior citizen, I am not often treated with respect but the staff at Beach Cities Auto Repair always does. Thank you for your perfect service and caring concern.
