Engine Repair Albuquerque

Today’s vehicles easily can exceed 100,000 miles on an engine and still run well with routine maintenance and proper care. No matter how well you take care of your automobile, auto engine repairs can become necessary for many reasons. Albuquerque has many auto engine repair shops, but not all of them are created equally.

Rio Grande Auto’s highly skilled technicians can diagnose and repair domestic and foreign vehicle engine problems. Give us a call today to schedule an engine diagnostic appointment. We can identify the underlying issue and make recommendations for the appropriate repair or replacement.

Carburetor repairs and overhauls

Your car sends signals when its carburetor is going bad. Sometimes the engine cranks but won’t turn over (and you know the battery isn’t dead). Other times, you can experience poor acceleration or overheating.

Sometimes all you need is a carburetor overhaul, which includes a good cleaning. Other times, you may need to replace the carburetor. Our technicians can thoroughly inspect your vehicle’s carburetor and recommend what makes the most sense.

Cooling systems, water pumps, and radiator repairs

Your vehicle’s engine generates a lot of heat. Without a cooling system that includes a water pump, radiator, and hoses, that heat could damage the engine within minutes. Following your vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations for maintenance and replacement of hoses and coolant can keep some problems at bay.

For hoses, we recommend replacement every four years or 50,000 to 75,000 miles. Don’t forget about the clamps that hold the hoses in place. They can weaken over time.

Coolant helps keep your engine from overheating in hot New Mexico weather. Replace your coolant every two years or 30,000 miles.

If any of these components fail, our technicians can quickly repair or replace them to get your vehicle back on the roadways.

Timing belts and fan belts repair or replacement

Fan belts and timing belts are crucial to the operation of your engine. If they fail, the results can be catastrophic. Not only does your vehicle not run, but you likely also suffered internal engine damage which is costly to repair.

One of the best ways to prevent this kind of damage to your engine is to check and replace timing belts and fan belts as part of your vehicle’s routine maintenance. Our technicians can spot the early warning signs of belt failure and recommend the appropriate action to keep your engine humming along smoothly.
