Due to wear and tear over many miles and years of operation, internal engine parts eventually wear out or become damaged. Depending on the number and condition of damaged parts, you may need to replace only certain components, using what is known as a "piecemeal" engine repair approach. This approach can be more immediately cost-effective if only one or two key components within the motor require replacement.


However, if several internal engine parts are showing signs of damage or wear, you can save yourself from future expenses and headaches by opting for a complete engine overhaul or motor rebuild. In a full engine rebuild, we remove the engine from the vehicle, completely disassemble it, replace all parts which wear out, then reassemble the engine and reinstall it in the vehicle. This type of complete rebuild provides you with an engine that runs like a new one.


If your vehicle has a blown head gasket, this often causes damage to other engine components and automotive systems such as your auto cooling system. See our article on blown head gasket repair in San Antonio, TX for more information including common symptoms of a blown head gasket, its function, how it is tied to other internal systems, and head gasket repair cost.

• Overboring Cylinders
