Automotive Services – Repair and Maintenance in Smyrna, Tennessee


The most important feature on any automobile is it’s brakes. You can’t be careful enough to ensure the safety of your family and others on the road. Therefore, we take special care to provide the best brake repair and maintenance services in Rutherford County and Middle Tennessee. We only use recommended OE (original equipment) brake pads and brake shoes. Additionally, we check for properly working:

  • Anti-locking brakes sensors and modules
  • Solid and vented brake rotors
  • Properly working brake lines
  • Proper tire wear
  • Clean brake fluid


At Dr. Automotive, we use top quality lubricants and Mighty Oil Filters for our oil changes. We also use any synthetic or standard motor oil upon request.


A multitude of suspension parts must be in proper working condition to make sure your vehicle handles correctly on the road. Such As:

  • Shocks
  • Struts
  • Ball joints
  • Leaf springs
  • Coil springs
  • Tie-rods

A poorly maintained suspension system can cause your vehicle to handle improperly, which makes you and others on the road less safe. We inspect, recommend, and install OE recommended suspension equipment.

Modern A/C

DR. Automotive is now servicing the “new age” a/c systems containing refrigerant 1234YF. Mandates from the federal government have changed the specifications for air conditioning systems in newer model cars but fear not, we are prepared to keep you cool no matter what year model vehicle you drive.


For auto coolant (or anti-freeze) we use a universal, all-season extended life coolant. This ensures your car runs at the proper temperature in the winter and summer.


Our transmission services vary based on the vehicle and our customers preferences, but we always use Original Equipment (OE) recommended transmission fluid and transmission filters.

Drive Belts

When we repair or replace drive belts we use several different brands based on OE recommendations. Some of the drive belt brands we use are Mighty, Gates, Conti-Tech, and Bando.

Fuel Cleaning

When we perform induction services on our client’s vehicles we clean carbon deposits from the fuel system which improves horse power and fuel efficiency. This includes:

  • Injectors
  • Throttle plates
  • Valves


Every vehicle has several different kinds of filters throughout the engine, located in the drive train and environmental control system. We ensure that all filters are properly replaced according to OE recommendations. Clean filters help your vehicle run more efficiently and last longer.

Regular Maintenance

Whether you own a new car that needs factory scheduled maintenance or you own an older car that you want to run efficiently for as long as possible, our trained and experienced ASE technicians provide thorough inspections, correct recommendations, proper repairs, and clear communication.
