Engine Repair in Newport News, VA

Our Approach

Without an engine, your car is basically an oversized lawn ornament. That’s because the engine is the heart of your car – it’s what makes it get up and go. The engine is also the most costly part of your vehicle, which makes keeping up on engine repairs extremely beneficial (especially to your wallet).

Experienced and Trustworthy Technicians Dedicated to Quality Engine Repairs

Our ASE-certified technicians have performed engine repairs on vehicles of all makes and models. Whether you’ve got a rusted-through Ford Pinto that needs valve cover gaskets or a shiny Corvette in need of an engine rebuild, we’ve got your covered. We work on all kinds of engines, too. We love oil burners just as much as gasoline engines – and we even have a soft spot for newfangled hybrids. Some of the engine types we work on include:

  • Naturally Aspirated Engine Repair
  • Diesel Engine Repair
  • Hybrid Engine Repair
  • Forced Induction Engine Repair (Turbo, Turbo Diesel, etc.)

Thorough inspections for accurate diagnosis

It goes without saying that proper engine repair begins with a thorough diagnosis. Our technicians start the inspection process by duplicating your concern. This is done by test driving the vehicle if possible, or by repeating the symptoms in the service bay. Our team will then diagnose the problem using our extensive selection of diagnostic equipment. This includes compression testers, leak down testers, stethoscopes, bore scopes and much more . Finally, once they have honed in on the problem, we’ll present you with a strategy for repair.

Comprehensive and Honest Overviews

Most people are overwhelmed by their engine; they see it as a complex system full of doohickeys and whatchamacallits. If you’re one of those people, you’ve come to the right place. We can help you understand your engine and the needed repairs.

Tires? We do that too

When your tire alignment is off, your ability to drive safely is compromised. Sometimes unaligned wheels can be obvious – your car pulls to one side of the road or your steering wheel has a vibration in it from balancing issues. In some cases, it can be subtle and the driver won't even notice. That's why regular tire alignment checkups are a must-do. Neep Tire repair or New tires? We do that too.
