At Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists, we understand that the best way to care for your car or truck is to follow the service intervals that your vehicle's manufacturer recommends. Servicing all brands, models, imports and fuel systems in Riverside, Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists has the tools and expertise to make sure your ride runs exactly as its manufacturer intended it to. From reminding you about routine service intervals to ensuring that all fluids, filters, and hoses are in optimal condition, Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists takes care of your vehicle and leaves you with one less item on your to do list.

Contact us at 951-367-7400, or send us an email, and our experts will be happy to answer your questions and determine what needs to be done.

Our basic auto maintenance services include:

30/60/90K Mileage Maintenance
As time goes by, various auto repair and maintenance needs come up at different intervals. Most manufacturers recommend car maintenance in intervals of 30,000 miles. This is the 30/60/90K mile schedule (issued by the manufacturers to car owners). Trust the experts at Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists to keep you on schedule, and help you preserve the condition of the vehicle, optimize its performance, and increase its resale value. The 30/60/90K service includes the following:

  • Fluid replacements
  • Oil and Filter changes
  • Tire rotation, spin balance, and pressure adjustments
  • Inspection of parts and systems - gears, tires, brake pads, belts, hoses, etc.
  • With higher mileage: spark plugs, belts, timing belts when applicable

Belts
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 Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists 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 Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists today. The mechanics at Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists will thoroughly inspect your car's belts; replace all worn belts; and adjust the installed belts.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 951-367-7400 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Factory Recommended Service/Maintenance
Automotive and auto parts come with a factory recommended service and maintenance schedule. The manufacturer will tell you how often to service or replace an auto part. At Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists, we offer factory recommended service/maintenance. Our highly skilled auto mechanics offer comprehensive knowledge and experience. At Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists, all your factory recommended service/maintenance needs are handled with the latest diagnostic equipment. Remember, we work on all American and imported vehicles (either diesel or gas engines).

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 Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists today.

Hoses
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 Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists 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 Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists today. The mechanics at Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists will thoroughly inspect your car's hoses; replace all worn hoses; and adjust the installed hoses.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists in Riverside, CA 92507.

Wiper Blade Replacement
Visibility is very important to safe driving. Having properly functioning wipers can help keep you safer on the road. If your car's wipers are not wiping well or are leaving lines, have them replaced immediately. To have wiper blades fitted on your vehicle, call 951-367-7400 or visit Protrans Automotive & Transmission Specialists today. We will fit your car with high quality and effective wiper blades.

Mike and his team are The BEST in Riverside! They give a fair price and stand behind the work. I have an old pickup truck, and together we are restoring it. I feel Mike welcomes you into his family gives you rides when your car is in the shop. Has late night drop off and will stay late for you to pick up your car after work. He help's get to know your situation, what you absolutely need, and what you can put off. Mike's shop has played a considerable role in getting my Dad's old truck running.

Had a transmission redone here about a year ago now, never have had a mechanic that I trust until now. They were great at communicating what was going on and didn't try to suck all the money out of me like a lot of mechanics do. They did exactly what they said they were going to do and didn't do "extra" to jack up the price. Very professional and quick. I'd recommend to anyone. A+ shop. Tiny bit more expensive than some other places, but the quality is worth the extra money.

Very professional outfit there. These guys did great work on my Kia. I know those parts were hard to find too. My car has never run better. Highly recommend this place.

Visited for coolant flush/ fill. Great prices, matched quote, stated over call nearly perfectly. Had break rotars cleaned / derusted and smoothed. Also matched quote well for good prices. Recommended my mother to visit for her cars AC issue. Got it done for much less than the dealership would have done it for. It was about 450-550. Dealership would have done it for 700-900. They perform quality service for fair prices. For anything beyond swap part service (self servicing / maintenance), these guys can meet your cars service needs that you may not have the tools or equipment for.

From the moment I called Protrans they were on top of it! Their customer service is top notch and that means a lot in the auto repair industry. They were genuine, understanding and extremely patient with me. They follow up with their clients after service and it's obvious they take their customers satisfaction to heart. Thank you Protrans! Highly recommend!
