Engine Warranties

All of our work carries a nationwide parts and labor warranty.  Please see details below.

Engine replacement is an investment worth making that could save you thousands of dollars compared with buying a new car.  When you consider whether to repair or replace your vehicle, it almost always makes sense to repair, particularly, if your car is already paid off.  It especially makes smart economic sense if your car will have a market value close to blue book after installing a new or remanufactured engine.  You may also consider replacing the engine if your car is a classic or antique.  In addition to maintenance and repair, we are skilled at and do a lot of restoration work on classic cars.
