  • A/C System
    AC System services include evacuation & recharge. We use only R134 for freon. When you car begins blowing warm air instead of cold air in the summertime this is when it is time to have your vehicle’s AC system inspected for any leaks or damages. You may need just a recharge to get that cool air blowing once again.
  • Alignment
    Does your car feel like it is pulling to the left or right? Did you hit a pothole and begin to notice the steering wheel is off centered? These are important questions to ask yourself when determining if you need an alignment. A&C Autoworks uses state of the art equipment to re-align your vehicle. We have the capability to do 2 or 4 wheel alignments.
  • Battery

  • Check Engine Light
    The check engine light is a signal that the onboard diagnostics system (or OBD II) has detected a malfunction in the vehicle’s emissions, ignition, fuel or exhaust systems. It could be caused by something as simple as a loose gas cap or a faulty oxygen sensor or spark plug or something as severe as a faulty catalytic converter or major engine problems, so you shouldn’t ignore it. We use the latest diagnostic software to hook into your vehicles OBD port to run codes & determine the cause then offer a solution to clear the check engine light codes.
  • Diagnostic
    We use the latest diagnostic equipment to help us pull codes and determine any issues your vehicle is currently experiencing. By using this diagnostic technology it allows us to get an idea of what is causing issues with your vehicle and gives us a game plan as to how to fix your vehicle and get back on the road quickly. We have a diagnostic specialist on staff.
  • Drivetrain
    A car’s drivetrain connects the engine to the wheels enabling the vehicle to move. As the engine runs, the drivetrain helps send power through the transmission to the drive wheels. The drive wheels can be either the front wheels, rear wheels, or all the wheels — also known as front-wheel, rear-wheel, and all-wheel drive. Components included in the drivetrain include the Transmission, Driveshaft, CV Joint, U Joint, Differentials & Axle Shafts.
  • Electrical
    Starter, Ignition Switch, Battery, Alternator & any other piece on your vehicle big or small all play a part in a vehicle's electrical system it is what allows the vehicle to turn on/off. These components are all connected to the battery through wires which carry electrical current and fuses to protect the wiring. Some wiring issues may be as simple as a loose wire or disconnected fuse or more difficult such as replacing an entire wiring harness. Our team of experts is here to help diagnose & determine all electrical problems you may be experiencing.

  • Fuel Injection
    Every car engine has a fuel system that consists of a fuel filter, a pump, and injectors. During a fuel injection service, we typically inspect all connections, the fuel and vacuum lines, the fuel rail, and the pressure regulator. Then we clean the fuel injectors and throttle body air intake. Afterward, we’ll pressure test the fuel pump and system and then decarbonize other parts of the system like the exhaust valves. When all is said and done, we run an exhaust emissions test to make sure the system is working properly again.
  • Muffler/Catalytic Converter
    Keep your vehicle's emissions in check with maintenance to the exhaust system. The catalytic converter and mufflers help your vehicle exhaust cleaner emissions while maintaining more engine power. The catalytic converter gets rid of the unwanted gases while the muffler gets rid of unwanted noises. In Colorado, catalytic converter theft is a major problem. If you cat converter has been stolen you will notice your vehicle won’t have much power & will also be very noisy.
  • Multi-Point Inspection
    A&C Autoworks offers a thorough multi point inspection to address any concerns you may have and also ensure your vehicle is running at top performance. A multi-point inspection is important whether your car is new or old. It is one of the best forms of maintenance, alongside regular oil changes and tire rotations. While oil and fluid checks are also part of the process, multi-point inspections help technicians spot everything from brake issues to worn belts and hoses. The purpose of a multi-point inspection is to check a variety of key areas where vehicles are most likely to show signs of wear. Addressing these areas helps to ensure the vehicle is at optimal performance and that its longevity can be improved. Thorough inspections generally include Fluids, Tires, Brakes, Belts/hoses, shocks/structs & exhaust system.
  • New Tires + Mount & Balance
    A&C Autoworks offers NEW tire sales for customers, however we don't carry any tires in store. Typically your tires will arrive within hours or 1-3 business days from the warehouse. Once received, we use our state of the art tire mount where will dismount and install your brand new tires. Then once they are on the vehicle we balance your new tires & you are then ready to put rubber to pavement. Disposal fee added to cost of replacing tires.
  • Oil Change
    One of the most basic & routine maintenance items on your vehicle is an oil change. We recommend every 3-5K miles you get an oil change depending on the type of oil you use. Standard (Regular): Conventional oils are mineral-based products refined from crude oil taken from the ground. The term “synthetic”, however, does not imply that the oil is somehow created from man-made ingredients. Synthetic: Synthetic oil is made from natural ingredients using a special chemical process.
  • Steering
    A vehicle's steering system is a vital part of a vehicle's ability to move. The main functions of the steering system is to provide vehicle turning per will of the driver, directional stability, it converts the rotary movement of the steering wheel into an angular turn of front wheels, and absorbs road shock from being transmitted to a driver's hands. A motor vehicle's steering system contains the following basic parts: Steering wheel, Steering shaft and Column, Tie rods, rack, idler arms, Pitman arm, and drag or center link. A&C Autoworks has a steering/suspension specialist on Staff.
  • Subaru Repair
    A&C Autoworks has a Subaru specialist on staff to handle all your repair needs for Subaru's.
  • Suspension
    We can replace shocks, struts, sway bar links, stabilizer bars, control arms & bushings for front & rear suspension. We typically recommend an alignment after suspension work has been completed to ensure your vehicle is running properly again. A&C Autoworks has a Suspension/Steering specialist on staff.
  • Timing Belt
    The timing belt is a rubber belt that synchronizes the actions of the camshaft and crankshaft to keep your valves safely moving and your engine running. In older vehicles, the timing belt may actually be a chain. Regardless, the purpose is the same, and it is important to the functioning of your vehicle. Newer cars can usually go 100,000 miles before the timing belt needs replacement. Older vehicles may need it replaced at 60,000. It is important to note that if the water pump goes bad, the timing belt will usually need to also be replaced. If a timing belt is worn out it may begin to slip and severe misfires will occur. Unfortunately, there is no clear-cut sign that a timing belt is going bad.
  • Transmission Repair/Replacement
    Determining whether to fix or replace your transmission can be a difficult decision. Our team of certified technicians will aide you in determining what route is best to take when it comes to repairing or replacing your transmission.
  • Transmission Service
    A transmission service is a regular part of routine car maintenance, just like an oil change. The primary aspect of a transmission service is flushing out the old transmission fluid and replacing it with new fluid. Typically most manufacturers recommend your transmission to be serviced every 60k-100k miles for most automatic vehicles, while manual transmissions it is recommended every 30k-60k miles.
  • Water Pump
    The water pump pushes coolant from the radiator through the coolant system, into the engine and back around to the radiator. The heat that the coolant picked up from the engine is transferred to the air at the radiator. Without the water pump, the coolant just sits in the system. The engine is likely to overheat, which can cause serious engine damage. Water pumps have a life span and should be replaced at the interval your owner's manual suggests.
