Here’s More on Our Most Popular Services

  • Brakes


    Lots of vehicles today have brake wear sensors, which cause a screeching sound when you need brake service. For vehicles without sensors, squeaks, squeals, and grinding noises—indicating your brake pads are completely worn away and you’re hearing metal on metal—are never a good sign. The certified mechanics at Smog & Registration can inspect, resurface, and turn your brake rotors and calipers as needed to make sure your brakes don’t let you down.

  • Oil Change / Lube Service

    Oil Change / Lube Service

    Experts recommend an oil and filter change every three months or 3,000 miles, whichever is first. It’s an essential way to maximize engine protection and keep your engine functioning properly. We find that oil changes at 7,500 miles are usually too long an interval for most common driving conditions in Southern California. Our oil change service also comes with a 40-point inspection to catch any issues before they become major problems for your vehicle.

  • Preventive Maintenance

    Preventive Maintenance

    Most vehicle manufacturers recommend a 30K, 60K, 90K, and 120K service schedule to keep cars performing at their best, and you don’t have to go back to the dealership for these services! Smog & Registration can take care of all your maintenance needs and keep your warranty intact. You can also trust we’ll take total care of your vehicle. You’ll never have to worry about passing your California smog test or dealing with vehicle registration hassles.

    If there’s any reason you think your vehicle won’t pass a California smog test, come to Smog & Registration in Torrance. One of our mechanics will get your emissions issue repaired ASAP, so you can pass your CA smog test with flying colors. We have experience handling all manner of smog repairs, including problems with the air injection pump, catalytic converter, evaporative emission control, oxygen sensor, and positive crankcase ventilation valve (PCV).

  • Transmissions


    If your vehicle has an automatic transmission, it requires transmission fluid to operate properly. And like any other automotive fluid, transmission fluid breaks down and becomes less effective as it ages. Using the latest in state-of-the-art technology, we will install a safe and effective cleaner to suspend harmful varnish and sludge from the transmission valve body, torque converter, and lines. Then, we’ll add new high-tech transmission fluid with conditioners.

  • Vehicle Registration

    Vehicle Registration

    Does anyone living in Southern California not consider vehicle registration to be a huge hassle? You must get a smog check every two years, there are always long lines at the DMV, miss any deadline or payment and your registration can be revoked within days… the list goes on. At Smog & Registration, one of our primary goals is to make the vehicle registration process easier for Torrance area drivers. So, if you need to get or renew your registration, give us a call.
