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 to a lack of available machining facilities in Pueblo at this time. I can of course replace your engine with a used engine, or a new short or long block rebuild engine purchased through a parts supplier or salvage yard. In some cases I may be willing to do the actual build and arrange for the machine work if you pull the engine and bring it to me.

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.


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.

All machine work is done by Helton's cylinder head service or Pueblo crankshaft service.

Please keep in mind that most engine overhauls and swaps don't get done overnight. Waiting on parts, machine work and cleaning of components all take time. Unless you have purchased a crate or salvage yard engine that is ready to install, expect a 1-3 week average wait time for completion. Ready to install engines usually take 1-3 days.
