Preventative maintenance is the best way to ensure your vehicle stays reliable, and lets you avoid major repairs as well as the expenses that come with them. At 4th Street Auto & Tire, we provide a complete preventative maintenance program, and carry all the necessary parts and expertise to take care of the little jobs that let you avoid the big ones. Choose from a comprehensive range of the fluids, oils, filters, and belts that your vehicle needs to keep running happily and healthily. Relax while your ride is inspected by our highly-trained technicians, and rest assured that it'll keep running smoothly for miles and miles.
The first part of our preventative maintenance program deals with your vehicle's fluids. Your car needs these fluids to keep running smoothly and prevent overheating. Most of our fluid change services are completed quickly so you can get back on the road in Long Beach, CA. Our technicians are happy to monitor and refill your engine oil, automatic transmission fluid, brake fluid, anti-freeze, power steering and wiper fluids. We also perform checks on your radiator to ensure there are no small leaks caused by stones and other road debris.
The next area of our program deals with the filters in your car. Whether filtering oil, fuel, or air, your car's engine and drivetrain rely on pure ingredients free from power-robbing particles. Your vehicle's fuel system, for example, wants only the purest gasoline or diesel. When microscopic particles build up in the system over time they reduce its efficiency and cause issues like decreased gas mileage. The same goes for your engine's air filter. An engine needs a mix of fuel and air to create combustion, and that can't happen if your motor can't breathe. Regularly changing your car's filters will prevent this from occurring. 4th Street Auto & Tire will make sure all your car's filters are flowing smoothly and clear, as well as the often-overlooked cabin air filter which can make a huge difference in how pleasant a car is to be inside.
Tire balancing is an important area of preventative maintenance where we excel. If your car's tires are out of balance, they could be putting undue strain on components in the suspension, braking, and drivetrain systems, which can cost you greatly further down the road. Ensuring a smooth ride with professionally balanced wheels and tires is a much cheaper, easier, and safer way to make sure your car stays on the road, while ensuring a long life for your tires.
Your car's timing belts are extremely important to examine during the course of preventative maintenance. There are a number of events that need to take place for one full revolution of your car's engine. These belts ensure that they all line up with each other, and occur at exactly the right moment. Should the belts become damaged or break, the events can fall out of sync and happen at the wrong time, which can be seriously detrimental to the health of your engine and your car overall. 4th Street Auto & Tire ensures that all your car's belts are healthy, and that all of those events keep happening at exactly the right time.
If you want 4th Street Auto & Tire to make sure that your vehicle is well-equipped to continue transporting you safely for years to come, call us at 562-612-3142, or visit us in Long Beach, CA so we can schedule a time to take a look at it!

A trusted repair. Great friendly staff.
Art and John are the kindest and most honest mechanics that I've ever had the opportunity to work with. I'm very fortunate to have met them. They will always work with you to make sure your car is roadworthy. I will never go to another mechanic again, and I hope you won't either.
Great service, fair price.
They always do the right thing!!!
Very hard workers.
Really fair! Will tell you what needs to be fixed now and what can't wait.
John was very polite, knowledgable and honest. I visited this place two times, and each time I left happy.
This is my go to auto shop! The best in LB. Thank you guys!!!
I've been taking my cars to 4th Street Auto & Tire since 2013, at the recommendation of a close family friend. I've never been disapponted. Everyone is friendly, professional, and honest. The prices are correct, and I have not had any problems with their staff or my car. I ALWAYS make an appointment, because this shop is busy! Great deals on tires, too!
Art gets it right!! Most honest mechanic in the LBC. No drama, no bait and switch, just real experience in automotive. A guy you can trust!
I get everything repaired here. I've got an old jeep and keeping her running is a tricky task, but these guys crush it with good work, fair prices and fast service!
4th Street Auto & Tire in Long Beach has been servicing my car for a long time. They have provided great service in addition to suggesting future services. Their service is always above and beyond!
My daughter and her husband recommended 4th Street Auto & Tire. I was pleased with the service and quick turn around time for an oil change. I may have found my local mechanic going forward.
Always a pleasure, with 4th Street Auto & Tire family. Awesome experience. Thank you Art & 4th St - see you next oil change.
Fair price, great results.
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!
I always come here for my lights, brakes, and tire services. I love the road hazard insurance - it is definitely worth it and affordable.
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 :)
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.
In and out in less than 40 minutes. Nice people working. Fair prices. What more could you want for an oil change?
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.
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.
Reasonably priced and had the car ready within a few moments of the agreed time! Great neighborhood mechanic to keep things local.
Art really goes out of his way for you! I've never felt so trusting and so pleased with any other repair shop!
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.
Super customer service. Fast. Good work.
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!!
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.
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.
BEST EXPERIENCE I EVER HAD. They were very professional with customer service and labor. I definitely recommend to anyone to visit this place and get your vehicle worked on here. Thank you for your service and help!
I would recommend anyone to go to 4th Street Auto. They are very helpful; work is done well, and the price is very competitive.
Art is the best, and we love him. He takes care of our cars and is very honest and super reliable. Highly recommend!!! From Chay n Ian
The experience that I had was awesome. I was having car trouble, and my sister told me about 4th Street Auto & Tire where she takes her car. I took my car in, they found the problem and fixed my car. Art was awesome. He walked me through every thing that was being done to my car and made me feel that my car was in the best of care. I have recommended several friends and neighbors to 4th Street Auto & Tires, and I would recommend this shop to anyone that has car issues. If you are having car trouble and need an expert shop for your repairs go see Art.
Everything went smoothly. Quick, inexpensive, good work. I'd go back!
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!
Art's 4th St. Auto is reliable, honest and caring. Art always tells me what I need to have done for safety vs. the things that I could get away with putting off but will need to do soon. Prices are fair.
They have great customer service, and they take care of you.
4th Street Auto has some of the most impressive deals in town. The buy 2 tires get 2 tires deal is unrivaled in the area.
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.
Talk to Art, he will treat you right!!
