Engine Repairs

Engines are tough, but no part lasts forever. Years of hard use wear down engine components. If your engine is on its last legs, engine repair and rebuilding offers a more affordable alternative to car replacement. With a thorough vehicle inspection and service from RJ's Tire Pros & Auto Experts engine repair shop, you can keep your car going longer, improving performance and fuel economy. We have the skills to handle big jobs like engine repairs on new and late-model gas and diesel vehicles. Our locally owned car service center provides trusted auto service to residents and businesses throughout Yakima Valley.

Signs You Need Engine Repair

If you notice any of these common engine problems, bring your vehicle into our auto service and maintenance center for a diagnostic inspection:

  • Car won’t start
  • Check engine light on
  • Low oil and oil leaks
  • Engine overheating
  • Smoke from exhaust
  • Vehicle stalls frequently
  • Shaky, jerky acceleration and rough idling
  • Grinding, pinging, or clicking sounds  

Scheduling an engine test now, before problems worsen, prevents damage that can cause premature engine failure.

Fast, Lasting Engine Repairs and Restoration

Engine rebuilding isn't for amateurs. Engines are precisely built, complex machines made of many moving parts. Unlike car service centers specializing in oil changes, batteries, and brake jobs, our ASE-certified auto mechanics perform complex repairs. We have the tools and experience to perform professional engine overhauls and fix any associated components impacting performance and operation, including:

  • Cracked engine blocks
  • Blown cylinder heads
  • Worn cam and crankshafts
  • Damaged valves, rods, pistons, and bearings
  • Core or freeze plug failure
  • Engine gaskets and seals
  • Worn timing belts and chains
  • Ignition system issues
  • Bad sensors and control modules
  • Fuel and oil pump issues
  • Transmission repair and maintenance
  • And more

No matter what engine repair service you need, our friendly technicians will always take the time to explain what's wrong with your motor, so you understand the services required to restore your vehicle to prime operating condition.

Engine Replacement

Engine replacement isn't just something that happens on classic car restoration shows. For new or late-model engines damaged beyond repair, our local engine repair shop offers rebuilt used engines and new crate engines, depending on availability, to restore your vehicle.

Protect Your Engine with Regular Engine Maintenance

After professional engine rebuilding, preventive maintenance is crucial to maintain peak performance and fuel efficiency and ensure lasting use. Immediately address check engine lights before repair issues snowball. Prevent unnecessary wear with regular oil and filter changes. Perform manufacturer-recommended maintenance on schedule, including air and fuel filter changes, drive belt and chain replacement, and transmission and cooling system maintenance. In diesel engines, use recommended fuel additives and drain water separators and filters regularly.
