Authorized Jasper Dealer
Give Your Vehicle a New Lease on Life with JASPER. That big oil slick in your driveway or those strange noises from under your hood don't have to mean you'll be saddled with a new car payment soon. Instead, your trusted installer at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman can drop in a completely remanufactured JASPER gas or diesel engine, transmission or differential and get you back on the road again quickly! Call Auto Specialties of Lake Norman at 704-201-7334 to schedule an appointment. Proudly remanufactured in the U.S.A.

Cylinder Block
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks. Call 704-201-7334 to talk to the mechanics of Auto Specialties of Lake Norman about your cylinder block problems.

Cylinder Head
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman's cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Engine Maintenance
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, car engines aren't built to last forever. However, you can increase the engine's lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular engine maintenance for your vehicle. To have your engine maintained by experts, visit Auto Specialties of Lake Norman.

Engine Repair
When your vehicle shows any sign of trouble, bring it to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman for full-service engine repair in Huntersville, NC. From diagnostic check engine light repair to precision engine part repair, our expert auto mechanics are ready to help you.

Engine Repair and Rebuild
After years of use, your car's engine inevitably deteriorates. If you car needs a new engine and you are not ready to invest in a new car, consider having the engine rebuilt. This involves replacing or resurfacing all the rundown parts in an engine. Regardless of your engine replacement needs, Auto Specialties of Lake Norman has experienced engine rebuilders ready to assist you.

Engine Replacement
The engine converts energy into useful mechanical motion. This amazing machine is what keeps your vehicle moving. Although generally reliable, a car engine is susceptible to damage and breakdown. When this happens, do not sit and stress over it. Take action. Take the vehicle to a mechanic for an engine replacement. Bring it to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. Visit us at 100 Center Ln for quality engine replacement services.

Timing Belt
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact Auto Specialties of Lake Norman today.

Transmission Flush
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 704-201-7334 or visit Auto Specialties of Lake Norman today - we are transmission experts.

Transmission Maintenance
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, car transmissions aren't built to last forever. However, you can increase the transmission's lifespan by performing regular preventive maintenance. The easiest way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy is to provide regular transmission maintenance for your vehicle. To have your transmission maintained by experts, visit Auto Specialties of Lake Norman.

Transmission Repair
Our services include transmission repair on both manual and automatic transmissions. The first step in getting you back on the road is assessing your transmission to accurately determine the source of the problem. In some cases, we are able to repair your transmission simply with adjustments, replacing external seals, or replacing accessible parts. To have this done by specialists, call 704-201-7334 to talk to the mechanics of Auto Specialties of Lake Norman today.

Transmission Repair and Rebuild
When it comes to automatic transmission repair, there are several options: buying a new one, buying a remanufactured one or having yours rebuilt. Each of the above options has its own share of advantages and disadvantages. Of the three options, rebuilt transmissions are the most economical. A rebuilt transmission involves removing the transmission from the car, disassembling it, replacing worn out parts, reassembling it, and then reinstalling it. To have this done by specialists, call 704-201-7334 to talk to the mechanics of Auto Specialties of Lake Norman today.

Transmission Replacement
In motor vehicles, the transmission usually refers to the gear box, which uses gears and gear trains to transmit speed and torque from a rotating power source to another device. You can have your car's transmission replaced with a new, rebuilt, remanufactured, repaired or used transmission. For more information contact Auto Specialties of Lake Norman in Huntersville, NC. Our experienced service technicians can help you make the best decision for your vehicle and your wallet.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Once again, Bert and his team have taken great care of my family! My son's transmission was acting up, and he got me right in on short notice in order to check it out. My son was in and out in no time. I've been taking our automobiles to another place for over 20 years, but it's time to move our business to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. Well done, Bert! Five stars!


-Todd N.

Bert and his boys at Auto Specialties of LKN were terrific with my 2008 X5 with over 100,000 miles. I had a front end noise that resulted in replacing the front struts and left axle, and when that didn't solve the problem they dug in and found the culprit. They're problem solvers! Thanks guys.


-Tom S.

Great experience. I had previously received a couple different quotes from other companies that seemed unusually high. Bert gave me a very reasonable quote on the repair. While I had been told by others that would need 1-2 days to fix, ASLN was able to complete in one day. was nice to have the loner car to use during that time. Very happy with service. would certainly recommend. Thank you.


-CL Davidson

Burt and his staff always go above and beyond. They explain every repair detail to you. They are friendly, courteous and do excellent work for a reasonable price. I have to say I was also impressed with their clean and comfortable "waiting area". I highly recommend Auto Specialties of Lake Norman to anyone and everyone!


-Laura

This morning, I drove 20 minutes past 4-5 auto shops to come to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman because I read such positive reviews. I have to tell you this was the best decision! The past 3 weeks I was having to jump start my car multiple times a day, and believed it was battery. I got a new battery installed and still happening, so I thought it must be alternator. I arrived at Auto Specialties for 1st time and they QUICKLY diagnosed that it was ONLY a bolt missing from the battery connection. Thus he didn't charge me anything -- the trust and honesty of the owner was beyond impressive and earned my business for life!


-Josh

I was treated with great customer service and was contacted promptly after leaving my vehicle to be looked over. I received a phone call and was given information on exactly how and when they would be able to get my car back in working order. I was given an extremely fair price and I was surprised by how quickly I could expect to have my car back. I have been in the Charlotte area for a little over a year and had still not found a reliable mechanic - I think I have found that in Auto Specialties of Lake Norman. Their customer service goes above what I have come to expect for my auto services.


-Anna R.

My daughter lives in Charlotte and had some issues with her car. After going to a dealership, they gave her an estimate for repairs. We wanted a second opinion, and my nephew gave us Auto Specialties info. We called and spoke to Bert. My daughter took her car and we had it back in two days after they replaced valve cover gaskets and the ABS modulator for the brakes. Bert is very nice and honest, and his rates beat the dealership prices. We were amazed to get the car back so quickly, and they have earned our business for our daughter's car, who lives 2 1/2 hours away from us. They are wonderful!!


-Brian

My daughter's AC started having problems today, and she has a beach trip planned. I told Bert, and he worked me in right away, even on a Friday. He spent time trouble shooting and figured out the problem. I was in and out in about 30 minutes. AC is cold and ready for the beach trip thanks to Bert. Great service!


-Todd C.

I have been using this shop for a few months now and this is become my #1 go to place for repairs. They are professional, do what is right to fix your car. Price quotes are accurate. Most of all they are very honest and take time to show you what is wrong and fix it right the first time.


-Robert W.

I did my BMW 328i tune-up here, and I can say: This place is friendly, trustworthy and affordable!


-Slobodan N.

This has been the best repair experience I have had in years. They are friendly, have fair prices, quality work, and timely. Called they took in in immediately, had done in 3 hours. Will be going back.


-Robert W.

Great friendly staff. Fixed the brakes on our van and now we can have that safe driving feeling again. Great prices and honest people. We will be a repeat customer!


-Andrew

The guys at Auto Specialties of Lake Norman have always treated me fairly and do a great job. They will give you an honest quote and do it correctly. I recommend them to anyone!


-Gary K.

Bert and his team at Auto Specialties are fabulous. They are always prompt to respond to calls, courteous, and go out of their way to help. But most of all, I trust their opinion and the wonderful service they provide. I feel fortunate to have found them and I recommend them to anyone who is looking for car service.


-Hope P.

I recently moved to the Charlotte area about a month ago. I experienced a problem with my car. Being new to the area I had no information on a repair facility. I called the dealer and they quoted an outrageous price to repair my car. I call Auto Specialties of Lake Norman and spoke with Bert. He was very professional and understanding and most helpful. I had my car towed to the location and in less than 5 hours he called to advise that my car was ready. Great service!


-Lisa V.

This shop is great - they do solid work and stand firmly behind everything they do. I have had a couple of major problems with my 2007 BMW 335i, and Bert and the team have gotten my car back on the road each time. They are more than fair with their charges and are great to work with. I feel so fortunate that a friend referred me to them!


-David S.

Burt was great in being patient with us in dealing with my son's car, which blew the engine. He was gracious enough to diagnose it and not charge a storage fee while we made arrangements to have it towed and removed from his lot. Thank you!!


-Brennan Z.

Thanks Bert for excellent customer service! I will recommend to all of my friends and be back for sure!!


-Suzi T.

Exceptional service! Stood by price even though job parts costed more than the original quote. Offer big dealer professionalism in a small shop environment with straight forward pricing.


-Jason L.

We found Bert's shop while looking at reviews online and tried him out. We were very happy with the work that they did on my wife's 2003 BMW and have been back 3 more times and have saved hundreds of dollars with him as opposed to the BMW dealer. His work is great and has a great personality. My wife and I will continue to have them do our work. Bert is a great person.


-Brian F.

Let's hear it for small shops! These guys are expert mechanics, they're honest, and they aren't interested in pressing you for work your vehicle doesn't need. They know that their phenomenal service will earn your trust and repeat business. I'm moving out of Huntersville for a new job in South Charlotte, but by God I'm going to drive to Auto Specialties of Lake Norman whenever I need a mechanic; I'm sold for life.


-Clayton S.

Top rate service every time. Bert has been servicing my vehicles for years and I wouldn't go anywhere else!


-Patrick G.

Burt and the rest of the guys were great. My oil pressure switch on my jeep was broke and he only charged me 320 for the all fix. He even fixed a hose for me for free. One place was gonna charge me 900 for the fix. These guys are honest and do great work. I would recommend this place to everyone.


-James G.

Was looking for a place close to home for an inspection. Drove by and found Auto Specialties this morning. They got me right in and took care of it! Great customer service, no wait time, super easy and fast. Thanks for taking care of me!!


-Stacey C.

Best locally owned shop around, Bert and his team do a wonderful job of getting in and fixed and on your way again. i will continue to make the drive from China Grove to Huntersville for my automotive needs. I highly recommend you give them a try


-Stephen F.

Performed complete brake service on my Dodge truck. Part I requested to have replaced,I was told no need to spend the extra money, unless I just wanted the item replace. Great value and quality work.


-William T.

The guys here are absolutely awesome. They always make sure your Vehicle and family are safe. Top notch. It's the only place I will go for our vehicles.


-Jeff H.

Outstanding work and completed in a very timely manner. Fixed my van prior to making a 1400 mile round trip. Very pleased! I highly recommend Bert and the guys to everyone I know needing vehicle maintenance and repair.


-Justin M.

Bert is absolutely amazing and he always quickly resolves my automotive problems. I have taken my Infiniti to Bert several times and he quickly repairs my car at a fraction of the price the dealer is asking. I wouldn't take my baby to anyone else in NC. Thanks to the team at Auto Specialties of LN for looking out for my car and my pocket book. You guys are so awesome!!!!


-Nikita G.
