Faulty belts and hoses are one of the cheapest fixes that, if left unchecked, can have terrible consequences. A faulty belt or hose can cause you to lose steering, lose your car’s electronics, or cause your engine to overheat. Each car has a different recommended interval for replacing belts and hoses. Replacing a few belts pales in comparison to losing an entire engine.

Colorado has some of the strictest emissions requirements in the country. New vehicles are exempt from emissions tests for 7 years. Any vehicle older than that is subject to strict requirements. Your car can fail an emissions test simply for having the “Check Engine” light on during an inspection. If you fail emissions or suspect you will bring your vehicle in, we’ll do what is necessary to help you pass.

Your “check engine” light could mean nothing. Maybe it’s been on since you bought the car, or maybe your car’s engine is warning you something’s out of place. Whatever the case, our qualified technicians will diagnose your engine’s codes and make the proper adjustments.

Whether you lost your engine or just want to gain more horsepower by swapping it out, our mechanics will get your car back up and running and onto the road.

Your vehicle has a number of filters in place to stop particulates from contaminating the rest of the system. When these filters get clogged, it can reduce performance or accelerate contamination of the lines. Whether changing your oil filter or swapping in a new air conditioning filter, your car will run better when its filters are clean.

Nothing is more annoying than seeing the signs of a leak under your car and not knowing where it’s coming from. Don’t keep scratching your head. Bring your vehicle in, and let us diagnose the source of the leak before it does costly damage to your vehicle.

The fuel pump, as the name implies, is the motor on your vehicle that transfers gasoline or diesel from the tank to the engine. Like all motors, eventually, these fuel pumps break and need to be replaced. If you notice your car is guzzling more fuel than normal or performing noticeably faster, or more sluggish than normal, this might be a sign that your fuel pump is on its way out. Bring your vehicle in and have the mechanics at Bighorn Automotive look at it before it stops working, and you need to call a tow truck.

Over time, parts of your fuel system will become clogged with dirt and debris. A clogged fuel system can lead to damaged engine parts, which will become noticeable through decreased performance and fuel economy.

Do you notice a new engine sound or an increased vibration? You might have a damaged exhaust system. It could be a simple leak or something as serious as a failing catalytic converter. If your fuel efficiency is below average, bring the vehicle in and let Bighorn Automotive inspect it. If left unchecked, exhaust damage can cause further engine troubles.

There’s nothing worse than the feeling of turning the key and hearing complete silence. There are a number of potential causes behind a vehicle not starting, and we can identify them for you. Over time, your vehicle’s starter will need to be replaced.

Your engine’s timing belt, or timing chain, is responsible for ensuring that your engine’s valves open and close at the proper time, synced to each cylinder’s intake and exhaust strokes. Over time, the teeth on this belt will begin to wear and can mess with your engine’s timing, affecting performance and fuel efficiency.
