Computer Diagnostics Lexus Hybrid Vehicle

Computers and Electronics

We specialize in advanced electronics and computer diagnostics. We have factory computer scan equipment, enabling us to scan, diagnose and reprogram the computers of a wide range of vehicles.

Check Engine Light

When your vehicle's check engine light turns on, this usually means something is wrong with the engine.  It can be something as minor as a faulty gas cap or as major as an engine misfire.

Our technicians have the skills, training and equipment to diagnose the problem and service the repair needed.

Auto Air Conditioning Repair

There is nothing worse than having weak or no air conditioning on some of the blazing hot days we get in Cameron Park and the El Dorado County foothills. If your air conditioning system has a leak, or your compressor bearings are shot, we can repair your auto A/C. You never know, it might just be a loose or broken belt.

Lube Oil Filter Service with Tire Rotation

Cameron-Park-Automotive-Oil

Change filter and oil with manufacturer specified viscosity.

Today's direct-injected engines use higher engine oil pressures and increased engine oil flow rates that help to optimize engine performance, economy and emissions. This means it is even more critical to maintain proper oil pressure, flow and filtration. Insufficient oil flow, low oil pressure or oil starvation causes a lack of lubrication which can result in a ticking noise in the valve train. Regular engine oil and filter changes, following the vehicle's maintenance schedule or oil life monitoring system, will help protect the engine from premature wear.

Vehicle Purchase Tips and Resources

  • We will help you sell your vehicle at a private party price.  Trade-in value is only a fraction of your vehicle's value.
  • Before purchasing a maintenance or service contract with a newor used vehicle purchase, make sure to calculate the actual value, and dont forget that you could end up paying interest on these contracts if you finance your purchase.
  • According to California law, the seller must provide a current smog certificate (which is a good idea because that let's us know the engine is in somewhat of good condition).
  • When purchasing a used car it is a good idea to have a Pre-Purchase Inspection. We offer a 27 point inspection, with a check sheet, to let you know what condition the vehicle is in before you commit to the purchase.

What Our Customers Have to Say

"We are so pleased with Cameron Park Automotive and will continue to take our vehicles there... Honest and ethical in every way.... LOVE the way Debbie and RIch explain exactly what is going on and what needs to be done. No upsale from these folks.... THANK YOU for allowing me trust a shop that doesn't take advantage of someone who knows very little about cars!"  -Terri C.

"Great service they take care of their customers. Very personable crew. Will explain your problems and options. Highly recommend them."  -Dan R.

"Another garage told me I needed a repair (drive belt replacement) so I called here to price check. Not only was their quote lower, but once I brought it in, they investigated further and told me I did not even need the repair at this time. They also took the liberty to check on a couple other minor issues that I had been ignoring (tire pressure sensor and steering wheel tremors) and, after consulting me about the price, fixed them at a great rate. Honest garage and great customer service; would highly recommend!"  -Daniel M.

"I appreciate the expertise the employees at Cameron Park exhibit whenever I take my car to them.  I trust them with their straightforward communication with regards to what is wrong with my car and how they propose to fix it.  I won't take my car anywhere else.  Fair pricing too!  I've been using Cameron Park Automotive for over 10 years and feel lucky to have them as my go-to car repair shop!"  - Cindy G.
