Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Master Mechanics approaches caring for your car or truck from the ground up. That means that before we look over the internal components of your ride we take time to make sure that you're working with a solid foundation. Our comprehensive undercar inspections and services cover an important area of your car that can easily be neglected and give the foundation of your vehicle the care and attention it deserves.

Avoid disaster by coming in and having your undercarriage checked out today. Call us at 337-364-6977 or visit us in New Iberia, LA so we can schedule an appointment to ensure your car is in tip-top shape!

Our competitively priced undercar services include:

Alignment
Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles - this reduces tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car's alignment, visit Master Mechanics.

Anti-Lock Brakes
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Master Mechanics, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.

Brakes
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction). In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Master Mechanics can work on your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.

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 Master Mechanics's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 337-364-6977 or visit Master Mechanics today.

Chassis
A chassis is the car's internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects. At Master Mechanics, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.

Differentials
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds - thus the name differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle's differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Master Mechanics today for differentials examination and servicing.

Differential Flush
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 Master Mechanics in New Iberia, LA 70560 today.

Exhaust
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment. Master Mechanics has expert technicians to service your car's exhaust system.

Driveline
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car would not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. And, at Master Mechanics, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Shocks
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Master Mechanics today.

Struts
Much like a shock absorber (shocks), your car's struts provide a dampening effect as you travel over a road's surface. By absorbing the shock of the road, struts allow passengers to ride in a car without constant and uncomfortable motion. Struts work a bit differently than shocks in that they provide structural support for your car's suspension. This means that struts support your car's weight, unlike shocks which only regulate the speed at which the weight is transferred. Struts usually last around 50,000 or 60,000 miles. This is simply because the damping characteristics of the parts gradually deteriorate over time. Call Master Mechanics at 337-364-6977 if you have questions about the struts on your car. Our expert technicians will diagnose any problems and help you make an informed decision about repairs.

    -Helen-Tommy D.

  • My husband's truck been idling bad and killing at red lights and stops signs. He brought it in a few months ago to another shop. Well needless to say they didn't do the job correct. He drives to Broussard to work everyday and this isn't the kind of vehicle you want to drive like this. I told him about Master Mechanics. I got in touch with Emmett. We brought it in Tuesday afternoon before they closed. We already knew what was wrong and how much it would cost. Part was ordered and truck was ready today. It's working like a champ. I highly recommend Master Mechanics for all your car and truck needs. Staff was very nice and caring. There were a few other questions I asked about changing and Emmett said that was not needed. The price to fix the truck was decent and he saved us lots of money by being honest about other things I wanted to change. We will sure be using Master Mechanics again. Thank you all.
    -Monica H.

  • I've been taking my vehicles to Emmett for a while now. They have done everything from general maintenance to replacing broken motor mounts on my wife's car. I have never dealt with people who are as professional as the guys at Master Mechanics. It's a good feeling to know that when I'm not around, due to work, and there's a problem with the car, I can send my wife there and know they won't rob her. These guys are honest, fair and professional. They take great care of their customers. If you're looking for a great mechanic that you can trust, look no further.
    -Jim L.

  • We brought our vehicle to Master Mechanics to repair the air condition evaporator coil. The service was great! The job was done in one day, this is a big job of pulling out the whole dash board. They were also $300.00 cheaper than the other shop we were considering bringing it to. They are definitely in business to take care of their customers. I would recommend this shop any day.
