Your engine is the heartbeat of your vehicle. It is made using hundreds of complex mechanical components and electrical systems that all work together to keep your vehicle running. It is one of the most costly auto repairs.
Although your engine will eventually come to the end of its lifespan, you can avoid costly repairs and keep your engine functioning longer with regular preventative maintenance. A preventative maintenance check-up may catch some issues with other parts that interact with your engine such as an oil leak.
Preventative maintenance ensures that your other vehicle parts are running smoothly which in turn helps the engine run smoothly.
When you are experiencing issues and we suspect it is your engine, we will run diagnostics along with visual inspection to determine what is required. Some of the services that may need to be done after the diagnostics are:
At the extreme end of of engines services is an engine rebuild or overhaul. We typically do these for custom cars or vehicle restorations, however because it is more economical than buying a new car, we often do engine overhauls on high end vehicles.
Engine rebuilds are incredibly intense and involve concentrated experienced attention to details. It is a process that involves replacing parts with original Manufacturer Parts (OEM ). If parts are not available, it involves machining parts to the factory specifications.
The only time engine rebuilds are fun is if that is your hobby. We have extensive experience in rebuilding engines and yes, we do find them fun.
