Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Epic Automotive in Saint Louis, MO 63114 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 314-423-0011 for more information.

To keep your vehicle running at peak performance, we provide undercar services that 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 Epic Automotive.

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 Epic Automotive, 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 Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 314-423-0011 or visit Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive, 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 Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive in Saint Louis, MO 63114 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. Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

Tires
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact Epic Automotive today.

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 Epic Automotive 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 Epic Automotive at 314-423-0011 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.

What People Say About Us


  • -Thelma A.

    This was my first time having my vehicle serviced at Epic Automotive... The service was superb... and very professional.. If my vehicle is in need of service in the future I will be returning to Epic Automotive.


  • -Justin W.

    In case anyone was thinking of another establishment to trust your car with, don't! Epic not only is the only place my entire family takes their vehicles, but the only place any of my friends do as well!I could go on for hours where John has dropped what he was doing to ensure that I came first. Do not waste your time with anyone else.. Epic is the only home you need to know for your car!


  • -Amy H.

    Great service. Great price. Great people. Highly recommended!


  • -Amber C.

    Would definitely recommend Epic Automotive. Very friendly and has always done great work on my car.


  • -Mr. Porter

    I have no complaints whatsoever. The staff was respectful, friendly, and down to earth. The facility is pretty clean and the service was great. It's refreshing to find a place that actually fixes the problem instead of selling you stuff that you probably won't need just so they can make a few bucks off of you. I drove from Granite City, IL to check them out and it was worth the drive. I'll definitely be coming back if I need anything done to my car stereo.


  • -Toney W.

    Best experience I've ever had, Great customer service, quality of their work is excellent, and the shop feels welcoming, had my brakes and rotors replaced for a very good price, they answered any questions I had about my vehicle parts warranty's and more, I'll be back for a tune up my brakes are awesome and quite lol..they really do care for there customer's, Epic Automotive is #1, I would recommend them to all my friends and family. THANK YOU EPIC TEAM!! ....


  • -Kris L.

    I took my Explorer in to Epic last week to have the seat heater replaced in the drivers seat on a recommendation from co-workers. The shop was surprisingly neat and clean and made me trust them even more. Also when the actual repair took longer than originally thought they still cut me a deal on the labor rate to earn my continued business.


  • -Lawrence M.

    Called around for AC service prices. They have the best deal in town! Great guys and good service!


  • -Veronica S.

    Professional, Knowledgeable, Fair, Friendly, Fast Service. They got my car done that same day and didn't charge me an arm and a leg. And the shop looks great! Makes you feel like you've walked into the right place. I will definitely be going back to Epic for more repairs on my car.


  • -Remington V.

    These are honest mechanics. Have taken my car here exclusively for the last two and a half years. They have always been willing to answer any questions I had about the function of a part, whether I actually needed it, and whether it was still under warranty from past work they had done.


  • -Kathi C.

    Amazing integrity. I took my car in & asked John to fix the windows & a tail light. All 4 of my power-windows had, at some point, quit working, and started working again; they were taking turns & when it came to the driver's window not working, I'd had enough. But, once the tail light was replaced, the windows were all working. So, he DIDN'T run the $100 diagnostic on a problem that no longer existed. Windows are still working great, several months later. That was the 3rd time John had gone out of his way (and reduced his income) to save me money, and provide honest service. This is now my auto-repair-shop for life.
