ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Bowen Street Garage to help you protect your investment. Call us at 303-651-2220 or visit our shop in Longmont 80501.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Bowen Street Garage to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 303-651-2220 or visit Bowen Street Garage today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Bowen Street Garage today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Bowen Street Garage in Longmont, CO 80501. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Bowen Street Garage, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 303-651-2220 or visit Bowen Street Garage today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Bowen Street Garage in Longmont, CO 80501.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Bowen Street Garage, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 303-651-2220 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

  • While on a road trip, it became apparent from the sound and feel of my engine that my Honda fit needed new spark plugs. Andreas took care of my car same day, and it's running happy and tight. I highly recommend this shop if you are in the area.

  • Absolutely the best place to have any planned or unplanned work done on your car! I bring all of my vehicles here and have never been disappointed. I always know exactly what's needed, what my options are, and the work done is exemplary and always done in a timely manner. They use factory parts for my vehicles and don't charge nearly as much as the dealer, and they stand behind all the work they do. I wouldn't trust anyone else to work on my cars!
    -Barbara M.

  • Loved my experience at Bowen Street Garage. They were super helpful and went out of their way to make sure I had a ride to and from the garage if needed. We had to get the timing belt and water pump replaced and we had done extensive research on pricing. They were EXTREMELY reasonable by far one of the best quotes we had gotten. The customer service was fantastic. The woman working in the office was super fun and explained everything they were doing in detail and handed us a sheet with all of the information itemizing EVERYTHING you were paying for so it really made sense how they got to the price. I would absolutely recommend Bowen Street Garage. They have earned our exclusive business for sure!
