Automobile Repair & Maintenance Services in Hammond, LA
Tangi Car Care Center provides expert automotive repair and maintenance services for our valued customers. From minor services to extensive repairs, we’ll take care of your vehicle for you.
We’ll make sure your car stays cool in Louisiana’s hot summer months by fixing your air conditioner. From coolant refills to fixing or replacing a compressor or blower motor and repairing leaks, we’ll get the cold air flowing again. Additionally, we have the capability to service traditional R134 systems as well as new R1234YF systems.
If your car is pulling to one side or the steering wheel seems shaky, you may need a wheel alignment. Tangi Car Care Center offers computerized alignments for cars, SUVs, trucks, and vans.
Shocks & Struts
Your shocks and struts are part of your suspension system, which absorbs vibrations from rough areas on the road, help you turn smoothly and safely, and keep your car steady while driving straight. We make minor and major shocks and struts repairs to protect your car’s frame and ensure a smooth sailing while you drive.
Worn brakes can go from annoying to dangerous fairly quickly. Tangi Car Care Center offers all types of brake repairs, including replacing the pads, brake lines, and rotors. We also check for brake fluid leaks and change the fluid as necessary. We also repair emergency brakes. If you hear a squeaking noise while applying the brakes, brake failure is not imminent, but you should get your brake pads replaced soon. If you hear a grinding noise, your brakes are most likely worn down to almost the metal and you should get them repaired immediately. If your brake pedal goes down further than normal, or goes down nearly to the floor while in park, your brake lines should be replaced immediately. Do not take a chance in driving a car with faulty brakes. Whether you need one set of brake pads or extensive repairs to your entire system, we’ll make sure your car can stop safely.
Tune-Ups and Maintenance
We also offer tune-ups, which combine a number of small services into one. Tune-ups at Tangi Car Care Center include filter replacements, parts lubrication, adding air to your tires if needed, refrigerant replacement and fluid flushes as needed, and inspection of several areas of the vehicle to make you aware of any potential repairs that might come up in the near future.
Our mechanics in Hammond offer complete exhaust repairs, including the muffler, exhaust pipe, and catalytic converter. If you hear a vibration while driving, it could be coming from a hole, disconnected part, or leak in the exhaust system. Other signs that your car needs an exhaust system repair include a deep rumbling noise in the muffler, a rattling sound while idling, or a decrease in fuel efficiency.
Fluid flushes extend the life of your vehicle and can often prevent major repairs down the road. Tangi Car Care Center offers transmission, engine, and brake fluid flushes. We completely drain out the old fluid and put in new, clean fluid. This service removes debris, sludge, and buildup from your vehicle.
Whether your car requires synthetic or natural motor oil, our oil change technicians will get your service done. Every oil change includes a new filter. While we’re under the hood, we’ll inform you of any other repairs we notice that might be needed in the near future.
Belts & Hoses
The mechanics at Tangi Car Care Center in Hammond repair all belts and hoses, including the timing belt, drive belt, upper and lower radiator hoses, heater hoses, and bypass hoses. We’ll tighten loose belts, seal leaks or cracks, or replace these parts as needed.
