We are the dealer alternative for service on BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Land Rover, Volkswagen, Audi, Ferrari, Nissan, Toyota, Honda, Lexus, Alfa Romeo, Saab, Volvo and Infiniti. Auto Doctors has been serving your automotive needs for over 35 years. At Auto Doctors LTD we continue to further our education on the vehicles we service.

    We are pleased  to  announce the addition  of the most  in  depth diagnostic computer available that provides  full  dealer-level capabilities.  Auto  Doctors  can  offer  BMW, Mercedes, Mini, Volkswagen, Audi and now Porsche, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo owners full diagnostic, programming, coding, software updates and software performance mapping. Yes it's true. Owners of these fine quality cars no longer have to take them to the dealer for services that the average repair shop could not perform. We can. We are the only independent repair shop in the entire South Jersey area with these capabilities.  For example, imagine realizing more torque and horsepower without lifting the hood of your car. Computer performance mapping is state of the art. Our computer allows us to diagnose problems quickly and properly the first time. We can view live data in all systems. We can actually test components in all systems. This will save you money! Why settle for "poke and hope" when you can bring your car to the dealer alternative. Don't settle for inadequate diagnostic capabilities. It's unprofessional and it wastes your money. Many shops use generic scan tools that are very limited on what they can do. Come see the Auto Doctor for a complete and accurate analysis of your car's computer systems. Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo owners now have a legitimate service provider in this area.

Tips

 

 

 
  • BMW 5 &7 series owners with V8 engines may develop abnormal smoke from the exhaust system. This is caused by improper crank ventilation. Engine oil is drawn into the intake manifold and burned out the exhaust. If you are having this trouble, immediate attention is advised.
  • Porsche 911 owners with car's from 84-89 should have the fuel supply hoses in the engine compartment checked for cracks. Age and heat are the cause of the fuel lines to deteriorate.
  • Black brake dust is corrosive to a wheel's finish. Wash the black dust off at least once a month. Dust shields can help prevent this, but they do limit air flow to the brake rotors.
  • Check the air pressure in the tires at least twice a month. Low air pressure will cause you to use more gas, shorten the life of the tire, and could contribute to an accident.
  • Sport utility vehicles should have their tires rotated every 5k.miles. Frequent tire rotation can add another 20k.miles to the life of your tires.
  • Mercedes S class cars (W140 chassis) built in the 90's are known to have their air conditioning evaporators leak refrigerant. Owners may experience poor air conditioning performance.
  • Brake squeal is a result of  modern day organic brake compound material vs. brake pads and shoes made with asbestos. We use several products that help minimize brake squeal. You may notice your brakes tend to squeal more in drier atmospheric conditions.
  • The "Check Engine" Light indicates an abnormality in the power train system. This could be a problem with the engine management or the transmission management. Any car produced from 1996 and later will turn on the check engine light if you fuel up while leaving the engine running or leaving the key on. DON'T DO THIS!
  • Vehicle Maintenance is often over looked. Keeping your car in tune and your tires properly inflated will give you the best fuel mileage. Our meticulous vehicle maintenance records allow us to know what services you are due for and when you should have them done.
  • Just about all late model cars and trucks have a network of computer systems. You must have the proper equipment to test and analyze these systems. Take an oil service for example. You must tell the car that the oil was changed. The same operation for brakes, filters, and other maintenance services. Often, software updates are used to cure malfunctioning systems. We can do this on Mercedes, BMW, Mini, Volkswagen, Audi and now Porsche cars.   
  • Volkswagen cars with the 1.8 turbo engine must use synthetic 5/40 motor oil. These engine will develop sludge if you use standard petroleum based oil. We use Pentosin, Lubri-Moly, Elf and Red Line products.
  • New Beetle owners should be aware of damaging the fog lights and grill if you park too close to a tire stop. 
  • Saab cars with 2.0 and 2.3 turbo engines should also use synthetic motor oil.      SLUDGE IS A KILLER!
  • The best tip was given to me by the greatest technician I have ever known, my beloved father who passed away on November 20, 1980. "You must use your eyes before you use your hands".
