Pueblo, CO engine replacement including VW air cooled engines!

I am no longer doing engine rebuilds in most cases, depending on the engine type due there no longer being any actual engine or cylinder head machine shops in Pueblo. I can of course replace your engine with a used engine, or a new short or long block rebuilt engine purchased through a parts supplier or salvage yard.

Generally the type of build necessary is pretty simply determined by the type of failure, the extent of which is difficult to determine with any certainty prior to disassembly of the engine. You may also opt to have an engine swap done. Used or salvage yard engines are often good choices, or if you prefer, a complete factory or performance shop crate engine may be the way to go depending on your budget and component availability.

In ANY case, no machine shops means either long wait times to take parts out of town or simply buying already overhauled units in most cases.


There are many shops in Pueblo with capable automotive technicians that can complete your engine service or swap out your old engine for one in serviceable condition, however, I can usually offer you the better alternative with a more complete process and a better price. At All Pro all auto repair services are guaranteed and I only use parts that carry industry standard warranties.

In addition to the standard services offered by most shops when performing an engine rebuild or swap, I also offer a few premium services such as engine compartment detailing, extensive part cleaning and component painting. Little things that add up to a better repair in the long run. If you want every single bolt cleaned and a final product that looks as good or better than new, I can provide that level of service. If you just want a quick change job, I can do that too. Regardless of the type of service, I can usually provide whatever level of repair you require or prefer.

If you think you might need to rebuild or replace your engine but don't know for sure that the engine is the problem, I can test it for you and find out. Compression and oil pressure testing prices vary by application but it can be done in a relatively short time frame. In most cases you'll know by the next day if the engine is at fault.

I don't do any machine work on site except the most basic flattening of gasket surfaces like intake or exhaust manifolds, and some limited, minor cylinder head surface cleanup to remove small imperfections.

Note: There are NO remaining machine or cylinder head shops in Pueblo. Please do not ask for these services.

Please keep in mind that due to the fact that my shop is not equipped with a lift I am no longer doing engine replacements on four wheel drive vehicles. Since having shoulder surgery it is simply too difficult to perform the under vehicle procedures required on these and unfortunately I am just not able to do it anymore, at least for now.
