More Than Auto Repair, Colorado Springs
Our beautiful Colorado Springs region has driving conditions that can be a challenge to an engine and other mechanical parts of a car. Winter conditions increase loads to the differential, drive train, and other areas, and summer heat can test the oil and lubricants heartily. Our many years of experience convinced us long ago that we needed the absolute best lubricants that would hold up to Colorado driving conditions, and that is why we became an AMSOil dealer. AMSOil is one of the most respected lines of high quality, performance level synthetic lubricants. They are made tough to stand up to the type of climate conditions we have in Colorado, as well as provide optimum performance when rock climbing, engaging your four-wheel drive, or simply want to extend the life of your engine. Stop by and we can tell you about motor, differential, and other fluid options for your particular vehicle. We’ll be happy to give you a free quote to change your fluids out to what we know works best in Colorado conditions – AMSOil.
In our many years servicing autos in the Colorado Springs region, we know there are some tasks and offerings that set Cornerstone Auto Repair apart from the competition. Our highly trained technicians pride themselves on continuing education to keep up with the constantly changing mechanics and technical aspects of modern vehicles. We are one of the few independent shops in the area with the expertise to work on the displays and digital components and computers in your newer vehicle. We know how to diagnose problems, track them down, and fix them right the first time. It takes a solid understanding of current electrical systems, computerization, and solid mechanics to find and repair or replace the parts that make up the computerization onboard your car, truck, or SUV, and it can be maddening to trace. Our team is expert at finding and taking care of those issues so they do not stop you dead in your tracks or cause a system to malfunction. Bring your vehicle in for a free quote, and we will explain the diagnostic process.
Another area we excel in that few service shops will tackle is diesel injector systems. With our certified staff and specialization in European imports, we handle many diesel vehicles. Injectors are a fine science, and only a service center that is well experienced and trained in the actual disassembly and assembly, service, cleaning, repair, or replacement of diesel injectors should ever touch them. Proper cleaning and adjustment lengthens the life of your diesel engine and vastly improves both the burn rate and performance. When you suspect you have issues with your diesel injection system, or think you may have gotten some poor quality fuel, see us immediately. The sooner the problem is resolved, the less chance of damage to your diesel investment.
When we grew up, every kid fixed his or her own car. It was part of the adult right of passage to be able to change your oil, do a tune-up with plugs, wires, and a distributor cap, adjust the throttle linkage, or even tension your belts. Heck, auto mechanics Colorado Springs high schools taught was part of the curriculum. Times have changed, and much of the tinkering we used to do simply is not feasible or possible any longer on cars with emissions controls, many valve engines, injectors, and computers that control nearly every part of your vehicle. It takes an expert who is well versed in the highly technical, individual nature of each brand of automobile and down to the particular engines, drive trains, and systems to be able to take care of your car. You sure don’t want the kid down the street tinkering under your hood any longer, at least if you want it done right so your engine is safe and your vehicle runs at top performance after the “service”. What you need are certified, expert mechanics that are highly trained and experienced in your brand of vehicle and know what needs done and how to do it.

Taking care of your investment before something goes wrong is the best way to keep you and your family safe and arriving where you want to on time. We are big believers in preventive maintenance services, and we do oil changes, replace windshield wiper blades, flush radiator systems and replace coolant, and check and replace when needed differential fluid and other drive component lubricants, along with many other services. We believe in making certain that your car, truck, or SUV is in top condition at all times, and preventive maintenance is a great way to extend the life of your engine, transmission, brake rotors, and other parts. It is often far cheaper over time to do preventive maintenance than have to replace bigger sets of components. Things do wear out with use, though, so if you do need new rotors when we replace your brakes, we can quickly get them turned or replace them as the wear warrants. Our mechanics will always suggest preventive maintenance that we see in need of completion for your vehicle, just as we should, because part of our job is to be proactive to help you keep your car in top condition. We do not want to see you stranded on a trip, or with your kids in the car. Call us or stop by and we can give you a free quote on whatever preventive maintenance you might need done, or we can give you a checklist based on the mileage and type of driving you do, so you know what the manufacturer’s recommendation is for the service that needs done.
