Automotive Repair

Help us help you! At certain times of the semester, students in Gateway’s Automotive Technology program provide reduced-cost auto repair work to members of the community. If your car or light truck is 10 years old or newer and needs a repair that aligns with course curriculum, you may be considered for a service with fees as low as $30 plus the cost of parts needed. If applicable, there will be a $15 battery disposal fee and a $20 tire disposal fee. 

Possible areas of assistance may include: 

  • Brakes
  • Heating & Air Conditioning
  • Engine Cooling
  • Chassis & Accessory Electrical
  • Alignment & Suspension
  • Minor Engine Repair
  • Engine Performance & Emissions
  • Manual Transmissions & Clutches
  • Automatic Transmissions

By allowing Gateway students to work on your car, you’re not only saving money but providing the future leaders of the automotive industry with valuable experience. If you are interested in having a repair done by Gateway’s Automotive Service Simulation class, please submit repair request form.

All requested repair projects will be reviewed to determine if they meet the educational requirements of the Automotive Service Simulation class. Gateway reserves the right to only accept repair projects they feel are suitable for the class. All work is done at Gateway’s Horizon Center for Transportation Technology and by appointment only.

Please know all requests for service are kept for 6 months. After this time if you still need repair you will need to submit another request.
