Engine Repair and Replacement

Your engine is the most vital component of your vehicle. This is why it is so important to maintain the parts and fluids that make your engine run. Don’t leave your engine’s health in the hands of someone who does not understand your model vehicle’s unique needs. Dorn’s technicians are all ASE certified and have earned more factory certifications than any other shop in the area.


Engine Repair

Without an engine your car is going nowhere. So when you need engine repairs you need to know that the technicians working on your vehicle know what they are doing. All Dorn’s technicians are ASE Certified, which means you can trust your investment in their hands.

The first step to a repair is diagnosing the problem. An engine is a complicated machine, especially with modern advancements in technology. Using the best equipment in the industry, our technicians will run diagnostic tests on your vehicle to locate the source of the issue. They check fuel systems, electrical systems and everything in between with state-of-the-art computer technology.

No matter what style engine your car uses, from traditional combustion engines to electric, we will be able to diagnose the damages and repair them to manufacturer specifications.


Engine Replacement

Even with proper maintenance the worst can happen and your engine will need a replacement. Dorn’s is dedicated to making sure your vehicle meets factory specifications for performance and fuel efficiency. During the dismantling process and the installation of your new engine our technicians use factory recommended tools and procedures.

We always encourage the use of OEM parts. While aftermarket parts are usually a cheaper alternative, they often do not meet factory standards for reliability and performance.
