4X4 SERVICES

The technicians at 4th Street Auto & Tire have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.



We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.


Transmissions
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at 4th Street Auto & Tire today.

Transfer Cases
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. Trust the automotive experts at 4th Street Auto & Tire for all your transmission repairs.

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 4th Street Auto & Tire today for differentials examination and servicing.

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 4th Street Auto & Tire, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

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 4th Street Auto & Tire.

Wheel Bearings
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. 4th Street Auto & Tire can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let 4th Street Auto & Tire replace your worn out hubs today.

Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit 4th Street Auto & Tire today.

Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 562-612-3142 or visit 4th Street Auto & Tire today.

A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit 4th Street Auto & Tire in Long Beach, CA 90802 today.

  • -Dan R.

  • -Oscar P.

    I moved here from Pacific Beach in San Diego due to work about 4+ years ago. 4th Street Auto & Tire was highly recommended, and is conveniently close by to where I live. Art, the owner, is awesome and has been taking care of my 2007 Toyota Tacoma since I arrived here. He or his employees always explain what is needed and inform me how soon I need to take care of it with no pressure. I trust this shop and highly recommend!


  • -Priscilla R.

    I always come here for my lights, brakes, and tire services. I love the road hazard insurance - it is definitely worth it and affordable.


  • -Gia T.

    My husband & I have been going to 4th Street Auto & Tire for years now! Thx to Art, John, and the rest of the crew for always greeting us nicely, handling our car troubles, and for being reliable & reasonable :)


  • -Leo S.

    Very quick service! Came in to fix a flat and was in and out in 20 minutes. Very quick and courteous. Will go back whenever needed.


  • -Tina M.

    In and out in less than 40 minutes. Nice people working. Fair prices. What more could you want for an oil change?


  • -Robin F.

    I took my car in to have them check a low tire. They sell Hercules tires and I have tires under warranty. I was greeted promptly, and they were happy to help me. In less than 15 minutes they had checked the questionable tire (it was just low, they filled it) and the other three. In addition they had a look at the brake pads and recommended work there but no high pressure tactics when I said I had another mechanic. Over all a pleasant experience with polite, quick service. When I do need new tires, I will go back.


  • -Kyle H.

    I've been going to 4th Street Auto & Tire for years. Their service is fairly quick, well-priced, and I've never had to return a car after service due to some error on their part. I anticipate being a happy customer of theirs for years to come.

  • -Kate E.

    I am new in town. My tire kept going flat for months, and I finally took it in. I am very lucky this place is in my neighborhood, and I took my car here. They helped me with the best choice for my tire. They were very nice, honest and reasonably priced. Very nice staff, and I will definitely come back in a heartbeat. Couldn't recommend them more.

    Love this place!! Art, John, the WHOLE crew....they're stand up guys, honest, personable, and do GREAT business. They always have deals going on, and they work with you on prices. A++ service!!


  • -Barbara R.

    Referred by a family member who raved about their service recently at 4th Street Auto & Tire. I received a warm welcome from the staff. After looking at and test driving my car, I was given the information needed to make a decision if I wanted them to continue with the work. Since I needed a great amount of work done, I explained that it would be difficult to have repairs done due to the cost. Financing options were offered which was great news to hear. I was offered a loaner car until the repairs were done. Service overall was great. I will recommend others to them.


  • -King U.

    Went in for an oil change, found out I needed two back tires, air filter etc. They took care of me and got me out of there on time for an appointment I had somewhere else. Every time I go there, they handle business! Thanks Guys.

    What a deal buy 2 tires get 2 tires free (on select tires only), but still what a great steal if you are in need!!! The owner Art is a very nice gentlemen who really cares about being his neighborhood go to for certain types of auto repair and tires! He is very friendly and makes sure you are comfortable while waiting for you car. In his waiting room he sometimes plays movies to help pass the time while you wait. He is truly a nice and caring guy so to anyone who is in the 4th street area definitely take your car to him! For all the people who are in the surrounding areas it's worth the extra 5-10 minute drive to get the service you need!

    These guys are alright. I had a tire that would not hold its air, and I called at 5:30 to see if I could get it fixed. They close at 6...$20 and 20 minutes and it was fixed. it was leaking from the bead. No funny business and great customer service. I highly recommend these guys.
