Undercar Services: Maintenance & Repair

Rely on Poirier's Service Center in Pompano Beach, FL 33060 to provide quality care for your vehicle's undercarriage. Stop by our shop to see how we can help you or call 954-943-1445 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 Poirier's Service Center.

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 Poirier's Service Center, 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 Poirier's Service Center 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 Poirier's Service Center's quick lube services, you will have a brake system flush performed by brake experts. Call 954-943-1445 or visit Poirier's Service Center 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 Poirier's Service Center, 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 Poirier's Service Center 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 Poirier's Service Center in Pompano Beach, FL 33060 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. Poirier's Service Center 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 Poirier's Service Center, 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 Poirier's Service Center 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 Poirier's Service Center 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 Poirier's Service Center at 954-943-1445 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 Our Customers Are Saying

I have been coming to Poirier's Service Center for over 20 yrs. By far the most reliable, honest and thorough service center in Florida. Mr. Poirier and his staff are always friendly and take the time to go over every detail with you. Definitely 5 stars !!!!


-Annabelle T.

I have been coming to Poiriers Service center since 1996. I have always been very satisfied with the service, knowledge and courtesy displayed at this place of business. No matter what kind of vehicle, Ken and his staff have always kept my vehicles running in tip-top shape. May God bless them always!


-David T.

I was super-impressed with Poirier's. Every person working there was polite and professional in their dealings with customers. They fixed my car (needed brakes) while I waited, and the price was very fair for the work done. I think I have found THE place to get my car serviced when I am in Florida for the winter.


-Deb B.

For years my Dad and I have been taking our vehicles to Poirier's for both routine maintenance and repairs. You can count on the guys to provide great quality service at a reasonable price with no surprises. The staff is friendly, knowledgable and very accommodating. And the car is always ready when they say it will be. Finally, unlike too many car repair shops, at Poirier's, you never feel like you've been taken for a ride. They are honest, trustworthy and do a great job.


-Richard C.

We have been going to Poirers for ten years. I have never had a bad experience. In fact it is always a pleasure doing business with them. Extremely fair pricing, and outstanding labor. They never nickel and dime you, and are most honest auto folks around. These guys set the standard for integrity!


-Seana R.

I'm not difficult to please. All I want from any service provider is good work and a fair price. I found Poirier's a few years ago and gave them a try mostly because of the great reviews I read online. I have had consistently good service since that time. I recommend them to anyone in the area. I don't go to anyone else.


-Jim Y.

Poirier's Service Center has taken care of my vehicles for all nine years I lived in Florida. Was recommended to me by a friend and I would never consider going elsewhere. There was only one time when they couldn't figure out what was wrong, and when they redid the work they only charged me for parts but no additional labor. Yes, it will cost you $50 bucks for an oil change, but you know you are getting trustworthy service. Most of all, this single woman was never disrespected. Ken Poirier and his staff have the highest integrity. Take your car to them!!


-Meg D.

For 9 years I've experienced the excellent auto service provided by Poiriers. This is an honest team whom one can feel secure that they're not being "ripped-off." This is the only auto service that I use, even with a brand new car.


-Nancy M.

Ken, thanks again for excellent, honest, reliable service. It's been a pleasure to to business with you over the last 27 years.


-Dan C.

What a great place to do business. Awesome customer service. Wow!


-Brian H.

I have been going to Poirier's for years. They are the most trustworthy and complete automotive center in South Florida!!! I highly recommend them. Thank you again everyone at Poirier's Auto Service!


-Collete W.

These guys do a fantastic job. I've never had a bad experience. I really appreciate two things besides the great work. One is that they never give recommendations to fix or change things I don't need. The other is that Ken (the owner) calls us a few days later to check in and make sure we were satisfied with the work.


-Brad J.

My car is getting old and I feel like I have been living here lately. But Poirier's is the first service center I have trusted, and I know what they say needs to be done, really does need to be done. They are upfront and honest with you, and are always trying to help. Even in emergency situations I know I can come here and I am in good hands. The only downside is Poirier's isn't open on the weekends (and that's usually when my car decides to play dead) but with such great service I really don't mind waiting the couple days.. definitely worth it. Really glad I found this place.. I don't trust anyone else with my car!


-Audrey R.

Not only were they the best price around, their waiting area is nice and clean and didn't have that usually stinky smell which is typical with mechanic shops. It made my wait much more pleasant as they changed my front and back brakes. Also, The mechanic showed me what the brakes looked like before deciding which service would be needed. They also take appointments, which helps a lot. We will be using them for all of our maintenance and repair needs.
