Brake Tags

The state of Louisiana requires vehicles to undergo a yearly brake tag inspection in the parish it is registered in. Becnel's Automotive Repair offers these inspections and provides you with a detailed report whether or not your vehicle passes or fails the tests. When you arrive for the inspection, please have your vehicle registration, proof of insurance, driver’s license, and inspection fee ready. You will then fill out an application and be asked to follow simple instructions throughout the inspection. As long as your vehicle passes, you will be issued an inspections sticker. If it fails, you will have 30 days to correct the problem, which we can do for you in our auto repair shop. From the function of the speedometer and odometer to all brake components, the lighting system, and many other areas, our thorough inspections and repairs will get your car back up to speed.

Diagnostic Scans

When something just isn’t right with your vehicle, but you don’t know what the problem is, Becnel's Automotive Repair’s diagnostic scans will shed light on the needed repairs. We will connect your car to an advanced digital scan machine and provide a detailed report on what we find. Then our mechanic team will inform you of the next steps and schedule an appointment to complete the repairs your car needs. The scan only takes a few minutes. Sometimes, a small fix is all that’s needed and we may be able to get it done the same day.

Brake Service

Our New Orleans auto repair shop provides full brake services for cars, trucks, SUVs, and commercial vehicles. Whether you need new brake pads for the front, rear, or all four brakes, replacement rotors, a new line, or complete overhaul of your brake system, we’ve got you covered. From scheduled maintenance to emergency brake repairs, our staff will ensure your safety and peace of mind when you’re on the road.

No Start

There are possible reasons why your car will not start. If the car is silent or only clicks when you attempt to start your vehicle, a dead or corroded battery or faulty alternator may be the problem. When a vehicle turns over but doesn’t start, the fuel injection system or spark plugs may need repair. Other common issues with starting your car include the engine starting but then cutting off, missing while idling or accelerating, or refusing to start in cold or wet weather. Becnel's Automotive Repair has experience with all of these problems and will get your vehicle running again, going over a detailed estimate and following up with a service appointment.
