The technicians at J M & H Automotive have years of experience working on standard 4-wheel drive (4x4) vehicles as well as all-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles. AWD is a full-time 4-wheel-drive system (all four wheels receive torque from the engine simultaneously) that employs a center differential that allows each tire to rotate at different speeds.
We understand the special needs of these vehicles. These are some of the services we offer.
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 J M & H Automotive today for differentials examination and servicing.
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 J M & H Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
Hubs, Seals, Studs, & Nuts
A wheel hub motor, also referred to as a wheel motor, is an electric motor incorporated into the wheel hub and drives it directly. You can have a safer and smoother ride today by replacing your warped and worn out wheel hubs. Let J M & H Automotive replace your worn out hubs today.
Properly working seals provide oil and grease sealing - offering enhanced performance in a wide range of temperatures and environments. Worn out or warped seals allow external contaminants to enter the bearing unit or let lubricant escape from the unit. This ultimately leads to premature failure of the bearing unit. To keep out contamination and retain lubricant in the bearings, have the seals replaced with new ones. To have the seals replaced by experts, contact or visit J M & H Automotive today.
Studs are the threaded fasteners that hold on the wheels of your truck. The wheel studs are permanently mounted on the wheel hub through the brake disk or brake drum. To secure the wheel, nuts (lug nuts) are fastened over the stud. Stripped wheel studs can be quite dangerous. Damaged wheel studs should be replaced with new ones immediately. To have your truck's wheel studs replaced with high quality ones, call 559-298-8922 or visit J M & H Automotive today.
A wheel nut or lug nut is a fastener for securing a wheel on the hub. A set of lug nuts are used to secure a wheel to the threaded wheel studs (which are fixed to a wheel hub). Worn out nuts means one thing - the wheel is not fixed securely on the vehicle which puts the vehicle at the risk of rolling over. To have your truck's wheels securely fastened to the hub, contact or visit J M & H Automotive in Clovis, CA 93611 today.
A transfer case is a part of a four wheel drive system found in four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles. The transfer case receives power from the transmission and sends it to both the front and rear axles. This can be done with a set of gears, but the majority of transfer cases manufactured today are chain driven. The transfer case is connected to the transmission and also to the front and rear axles by means of drive shafts. Trust the automotive experts at J M & H Automotive for all your transmission repairs.
Transmission repair is not something to take lightly. The transmission is connected to key parts of your vehicle and needs to be working properly for your safety. Transmission services include replacing filters and draining fluids to prevent transmission damage. Typical transmission issues that may lead to repair may include shifting issues, slipping, stalling, fluid leaking, and the service light turning on. If you are concerned that you may need transmission repair, don't hesitate to schedule an appointment at J M & H Automotive today.
Wheel bearings are found inside of wheels, allowing the wheels to spin freely, and are connected to the brake system. They can become worn over time, causing a vibrating suspension and noisy rubbing as the car is driven. If they break completely, the vehicle will become very difficult to control and unsafe to drive. Replacement interval for wheel bearings varies greatly, but they should be checked for leaks and wear periodically. J M & H Automotive can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
Hands down best place to get your vehicle worked on! Friendly staff fast efficiant honest men. Your vehicle is in good hands with these guys. The only people I will let work on my vehicle!
Honest and fair mechanics! I've worked with Steve both times I took my far it. Good prices. He doesn't fix things that don't need fixed! Awesome place!
I was recommended by a friend and was very happy with the service I received. They stand behind their work.
Steve is fantastic. Couldn't get my headlight bulbs unscrewed myself, he told me to come by and he got them both done. Even though I'd never been a customer before, he charged me zero! Definately a new place to take my cars for maintenance & repairs. As stated in other reviews this is a shop that has integrity and is not out to overcharge you. I'll be back.
Steve helped me out in a pinch. I just returned from a 2 week road trip and needed to get a new alternator before hitting the road again. I didn't have much time on my hands, but Steve worked with me. I was pleased with the service, timeliness, and honesty. Thanks Steve!
Outstanding! They saved my life because I was driving with loose ball joints from MT. They were able to help me and I am back on the road. Thank you so much Mike and Erik! Terrific people and very helpful.
Great shop. I was referred to JM&H by some friends and was it worth it. I called and spoke with Stephen, got an appointment set, on the day of my appointment I get there describe what I think is wrong and supply eric the Mechanic who worked on my car, with the parts that I brought. An hour later I was all fixed up and back out on the road!! Big shout out to Stephen, Mike and Eric! Thanks guys!
I've been a customer for over 30 years when Joe, Mike and Hans first started. What has kept me here is that tradition of quality service, honesty and fairness that Steve is maintaining. Big "thumbs up" for J, M & H!
I have brought multiple vehicles to J M & H and they have always been able to get me in quickly, give me an honest quote on what needs to be done and get the work done in a timely manner. The staff is very friendly and I've never felt like I was paying to much for anything done.
I went for the first time this past week and I have to say that I had amazing service. Stephen the owner, is a stand-up guy and runs a great business. He goes out of his way to make sure you're well taken care of and that you leave happy with the work. The service was quick and well done. I would HIGHLY recommend this shop!
Good service and took my vehicle in on a late afternoon. Got the A/C repair done in under an hour. Half the price of Jiffy Lube for the same repair. Best place!
I can definitely say that they are honest, trustworthy and very friendly there! Being a single female, it's always scary going somewhere to have your car worked on because you never know what to expect or what some company may try to con you into buying. With this company, that is the last thing you need to worry about...I 100% trust them and the advice they give! The service was phenomenal and they take care of you immediately. I'm definitely going back to them for my car needs!!
