logo_smog-check_120x120California STAR Certified Smog Inspection and Repair Station. All prices are for gas, hybrid, and diesel vehicles. A pre smog is recommended only if you haven’t purchased yet or if you are thinking of selling the vehicle in need of a smog, to see if it is worth it. Here at TJ’s we do smog a little differently than our local competition. Can diagnose and repair any vehicle that fails smog test.  If your vehicle does not pass its smog inspection and you have all of the diagnostics and repair work done here at TJ’s, we will not charge you for any other smog inspections. That means you just pay one time for the smog no matter how many times it needs to be run. This can save you a lot of money because you don’t have to pay for a pre smog, then a failed smog , then a passing smog. PAY FOR JUST ONE SMOG!!   Can smog government and business fleet vehicles that do not require a certificate.

Currently we require an appointment, please call (760) 258-1342.

Auto Repair

We can take a look under the hood

We do basic and major auto repair on all domestic and Asian vehicles. Sorry, we do not work on VW, BMW, Mercedes, Range Rover, Volvo, etc. Also do not do alignments or tires. Pride ourselves on the best oil change for the money (not the cheapest). We perform a complete and thorough inspection of all major vehicle systems (please see oil change sheet) and provide a detailed report of our findings with estimates for all work needing to be done.
