More on Our Auto Service Specialties

  • Transmission Repair & Service

    Transmission Repair & Service

    The transmission is one of the most important and extremely delicate components of your vehicle. Proper care of the transmission will keep your car running longer with more durability, saving you money in the long run. At Pugh’s Garage, we offer comprehensive transmission service with the goal of helping get the most longevity out of your transmission. Our mechanics can handle routine transmission services, like a transmission flush, as well as complex repairs, such as a transmission rebuild or transmission replacement.

  • Brake Repair & Service

    Brake Repair & Service

    Brakes are a normal wear item for any vehicle. Factors affecting brake wear include driving style, operating conditions, vehicle type, and the quality of brake lining material. However, avoid letting your brakes get to the “metal-to-metal” point, which can mean brake rotor or brake drum replacement, rather than simply needing new brake pads. Signs you need a brake repair or brake service include pulling to one side during braking, a shaky steering wheel when brakes are applied, a pulsating brake pedal, and noise when you brake.

  • Certified Emissions Repair Facility

    Certified Emissions Repair Facility

    A properly functioning emission control system not only works to improve air quality, but also improves vehicle performance. At Pugh’s Garage, we have experience handling all manner of emissions system component issues, such as repairing the air injection pump, catalytic converter, evaporative emission control, oxygen sensor, and positive crankcase ventilation valve (PCV). Our shop is a certified Maryland Emissions Repair Facility, so you can trust us to handle emission system repairs right.

  • Auto A/C Repair & Service

    Auto A/C Repair & Service

    Your auto A/C system is complex and likely to experience at least some type of issue during your vehicle’s lifetime—whether your air conditioning unit just needs to be recharged or you have a faulty condenser or computer issue, which are both very common auto A/C problems. If your car air conditioning isn’t keeping you cool the way it should, stop by Pugh’s Garage for an A/C diagnostic and any necessary air conditioning repairs. Our mechanics won’t tolerate a bunch of hot air coming from your vehicle.

  • Check Engine Light Diagnostics & Repairs

    Check Engine Light Diagnostics & Repairs

    Your check engine light is a signal from your car’s computer that something is wrong with your car’s efficiency and/or performance, and you need to make it right—for the longevity and reliability of your vehicle and your safety. At Pugh’s Garage, our goal is to take the anxiety out of getting a check engine light diagnostic. You can trust us to determine exactly what needs to be repaired for your check engine light to go off, and we’ll never use a check engine light to recommend unnecessary auto repairs.

  • Maryland State Safety Inspection Station

    Maryland State Safety Inspection Station

    In Maryland, most used vehicles must undergo a safety inspection prior to sale or transfer. Our shop is a certified Maryland State Safety Inspection Station ready to perform your inspection, as well as any necessary services to ensure your safety inspection goes smoothly. If your vehicle fails to meet even one safety standard, the Maryland Inspection Certificate cannot be issued. We’ll fix any issue causing your vehicle not to pass the inspection. We can also handle necessary repairs if you received your inspection at another facility.
