4X4 SERVICES

The technicians at JayBees Auto 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.


Transmissions
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 JayBees Auto Service today.

Transfer Cases
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 JayBees Auto Service for all your transmission repairs.

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 JayBees Auto Service today for differentials examination and servicing.

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 JayBees Auto Service, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.

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 JayBees Auto Service.

Wheel Bearings
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. JayBees Auto Service can make sure that your bearings are in good shape and let you know if they need replacement.

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 JayBees Auto 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 JayBees Auto 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 520-790-6035 or visit JayBees Auto 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 JayBees Auto Service in Tucson, AZ 85711 today.


What Our Customers Are Saying

My family has been going to JayBees for decades (yes, decades), and we trust them implicitly. (Woman owned and operated if that makes a difference to you.)


-Jonathan F.

Great people here...!!! With the best customer service. Always a pleasure seeing them.


-Peggy R.

The people at JayBees are incredibly helpful and honest. As a woman, I'm used to being talked down to because it's assumed I won't understand. Shelly specifically always makes sure I understand the problems and the options for repair. They also have a courtesy shuttle so I can get a ride to my friend's house and don't have to pay for another ride option. I will never go anywhere else to get my car fixed.


-Sara T.

Love JayBees! Honest and reliable. Highly recommend.


-Michele T.

Shelly, Jacqui, and Doug....you're the BEST!!


-Eddie C.

Skilled mechanics, courteous.


-Thom M.

Jacqui and Doug are both amazing. Most trustworthy auto mechanic I've found. Time and time again they prove this to me.


-Joe F.

The people I've had contact with are very friendly, and my husband trusts their work.


-Lynn C.

Great service and honest prices.


-Quinny M.

Fair prices, and they do the little extra things to make sure your car or truck is fixed and safe.


-Bill G.

Great service and an amazing staff. They very patiently walked me through the steps they took to diagnose, troubleshoot and resolve my car's issues.


-Todd M.

Very happy. Came in for oil change. They checked over the whole vehicle for me and found a couple of minor repairs needed so I had them do a couple of them, and will return for the others in the near future. My second visit to them. Last fall they repaired a faulty engine control computer for me, but this was a difficult undertaking because Chrysler-Fiat (Dodge Owners) don't make that computer anymore. They found a company back east that remanufactures old out-of-production car computers and got the job done.


-Ken

My car wouldn't start and had to be towed to JayBees. I feared it was something like an alternator or battery problem but was surprised to learn it was a defective key. The courteous and knowledgeable staff always make me feel I am in good hands. Everyone I have referred to JayBees has thanked me. Wow, 30 years in the business. That says a lot.


-Patty D.

Jacqui and Shelly are such experts with car service, and I trust them completely. They have proven to go above and beyond to explain their findings about the work needed and not needed for my car. I am so appreciative of all of their time and effort to explain and assess everything for me. They are honest, do quality work, and are reliable - what more do you need?


-Michele J.

I love JayBees! The staff is so friendly and honest. I always feel comfortable spending money on the repairs that they recommend, because I know that they have my best interest in mind. We had quite a few repairs this visit and Shelly went through every single thing with me to make sure that I knew what I was paying for. I am super happy with the work. Thank you!


-Amy C.

Very thorough and honest place. Will be the place we are going to in Tucson for any problems with our cars from now on.


-Terry & Thomas

Routine oil change and recommended maintenance items. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and technicians. To be in business 30+ years means they are doing things RIGHT. Everyone I have referred to Jaybees has thanked me.


-Patrice P.

Replaced the broken driver's inside door handle, plus had an oil change/service & vehicle inspection/evaluation. Have gone to JayBees for years. Excellent service. Ultra-competent. Super honest. Really good people to do business with!


-J L

The personnel and mechanics at JayBees are very efficient and work in a timely manner. I was able to get an oil change and have the car travel-ready within a matter of hours. The mechanics are very thorough and check all the little details to make the car roadworthy. If they find a detail that needs extra work, they immediately contact you to let you know and have you give them the okay. I appreciate this extra effort.


-Judith S.

JayBees is always friendly, courteous and they do an excellent job. I've been going to them for 25 years, and I don?t trust anyone else.


-Cindy F.

Jacqui and Shelly and all the people here are awesome. I'd never go anywhere else.


-Anita R.

We were recommended to JayBees by some friends, and we were not disappointed. Not only did they expertly repair the problem, but they also gave the vehicle an overall service inspection at no extra charge. Their mechanics gave us several recommendations for future service needs, but no one pressured us into having things fixed right then and there. We will definitely take our vehicles back to JayBees for maintenance and repairs.


-Nancy B.

By taking the wife's Murano to JayBees instead of the dealer, we saved well over $1000.00 in parts. They fixed the electric system and also got the electric motor to work, which we had been quoted almost a thousand dollars parts and labor. Plus the fix on the electric system that had caused the car not to start saved us another several hundred. Plus they treated my wife like a person instead of like a dummy and making her call and ask her husband. They explained and showed her what was needed to be done.


-Bill G.

Great central location. Good people who want the best for your automobile!


-TK H.

Completely trust JayBees. They have serviced my car many times and have even left with no bill two times! Turns out it was not an issue, and they never tried to pull anything on me. Great customer service, knowledgeable and have a really cute office cat.


-Kelly Anne M.

This is a shop that has a passion to fix the root problem, not simply pull things off and replace them until they happen upon a solution. Don't hesitate to take your car to JayBees. I had been to three shops, spent thousands of dollars on repairs, and the folks at JayBees sorted through all the potential issues and solved the problem. I have a lot of confidence in their work.


-Byron B.

If you need your car repaired use JayBees. Their staff is friendly and treated me well. When you need a repair done quickly AND fixed right the first time, they are the shop to use. I love that they have women in their shop who actually know cars and how to explain my situation to me.
