The technicians at Budget Auto Parts & Service 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.
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 Budget Auto Parts & Service.
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 Budget Auto Parts & Service 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 Budget Auto Parts & Service, 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 Budget Auto Parts & Service 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 Budget Auto Parts & Service 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 863-967-0694 or visit Budget Auto Parts & Service 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 Budget Auto Parts & Service in Auburndale, FL 33823 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 Budget Auto Parts & Service 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 Budget Auto Parts & Service 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. Budget Auto Parts & Service can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.
I DO NOT have enough good words to say about James and his staff at Budget. He has been going way out of his way to take care of me and my situation. LONG STORY - I went for an oil change at Walmart on my 2014 Subaru Forester and they drained out my transmission fluid and filled up my oil, without draining it. We went back to Walmart after leaving and having issues, and the manager told us there was "nothing wrong" with the OVER FILLED oil dip stick. We then decided to go to Budget. My husband did NOT make it there and they left right away to tow us to their shop. Upon their inspection they found the oil WAY over filled and hardly any transmission fluid. They had to flush all the fluids and refill everything. Needless to say we had to pay that bill and now am dealing with a claim with Walmart. I have talked to James and he is trying to contact the "CLAIM" dept. that I am TRYING to deal with. For SOME reason they don't seem to answer when I call. Being new to the area sure put us at ease about finding this good service garage. Wish we went there first !!! ***** FIVE STARS*****

Great price really great salesman willing to go the extra mile to make a customer happy thanks budget auto parts
If I could give more than five stars I would. The guys at budget are AMAZING. I had some issues with my truck and they fixed all the problems for a very reasonable price. The level of positive customer service and honesty I receive from Jim and all the other guys is something that you wont get any where else. They are more concerned about the customers than making a dollar ,which says alot for them. I will not consider taking any vehicle that I own to anywhere other than budget. Great work,great prices and great people!!! Check them out, you wont regret it. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Budget was recommended to me by a fellow church member who owns another shop, My need was out of the scope of their work. Jim handled my need accordingly and was very affordable. Instead of just charging me for what might have been wrong they handled the problem the right way. I highly recommend budget for all your major repair needs!
Jim and Jose are Awesome not only can they find you any part you need they also can repair your vehicle to. Mechanic are very knowledgeable
Super place to find a good deal! Jim was most helpful in finding the parts that I requested. It was very professional and I'll request him the next time I go I need parts from there. All employees are courteous helpful and very knowledgeable in their field. I'll be sure to go back!
