Brake Drum / Rotor Resurfacing
A brake drum/rotor is not meant to last forever. They wear down a little every time you step on the brake pedal. Most modern cars come with thinner rotors to save on weight. Due to their slimness, the rotors wear out faster. For this reason, it is advisable to have the rotors and brake drums resurfaced every time you are replacing the brake pads. Resurfacing is an economical alternative to replacing the rotors/drums with new ones. If your brake rotors/drums have sufficient metal remaining with no hard spots, cracks, severe grooving, or rusting, then resurfacing is a great option. For expert resurfacing services, call 608-244-9040 or visit Midwest Engine Service today.

Bore Engine Block
A bore is the diameter measurement of the cylinders in an engine. When the engine cylinder walls are damaged, the holes must be re-drilled to make them bigger for proper performance. This is referred to as a bored engine. Boring an engine is an economical alternative to buying a new one. By boring the engine block, the engine is reverted to its good running condition. You will now have fewer repair bills, better gas mileage, and overall better performance. To have your engine bored by engine experts, visit or call 608-244-9040 Midwest Engine Service today. Our machine shop has the necessary machinery and staff to bore your car's engine block.

Shave Heads
Head shaving, also known as milling is the process of ensuring that the head is flat and true when changing a head gasket. Milling the heads ensures that you get a perfect seal. When changing head gaskets, let the machine shop inspect the head and tell you if it needs milling. At Midwest Engine Service, we will inspect your heads, determine whether they need milling, and shave them. Call us today or visit our machine shop in Madison, WI 53714.

Flywheel Turning
A common question among car owners who own a manual shift transmission and work on it themselves is "Who can turn my flywheel?". For all your flywheel turning needs, call 608-244-9040 or visit Midwest Engine Service today.

Press U Joints
A clunking or clicking sound from underneath your car may indicate a worn out universal joint (U joint). A worn U joint can be replaced easily by use of a press machine. First press one side, remove the cap and then press the other side in the same fashion. Although easy, most auto shops do not press U joints due to lack of the necessary machinery and expertise. At Midwest Engine Service's machine shop, we have the necessary press machines and qualified staff to press your car's U joints.

Press Wheel Bearings
At Midwest Engine Service's machine shop, we will handle all your wheel bearing needs with our high-tech press machines. Call us at 608-244-9040 or visit us in Madison, WI 53714 today.

Valve Jobs
A valve job is an operation performed on any 4-stroke engine. The main purpose of this job is to resurface the mating surfaces of the poppet valves and their respective valve seats. Valve jobs usually only occur in high-performance vehicles, but sometimes passenger cars need valve jobs for these reasons: overheating, material failure, high mileage, excessive RPM, and foreign object damage. Call 608-244-9040 or visit Midwest Engine Service for all your valve job needs.

Check for Cracked Heads
A cracked head is a serious engine problem that can lead to your car breaking down. Even if the car engine won't fail, it will definitely suffer from poor performance. The following are some symptoms of a cracked engine head: oil leaks, low engine compression (engine combustion pressure escapes), coolant leaks (leading to engine overheating), engine head smoke, and engine missing. At Midwest Engine Service, we will have a knowledgeable service professional check for cracked heads on your car's engine.

    Testimonials

    • I am from IL and was going to our home in Northern Wisconsin when I experienced car trouble. Lucky for me, I got off at the first Madison exit. I called Midwest Engine Service. They were AWESOME! They had me towed to their shop. Clean building and great staff. They got me back on the road within 3 hours. The repair bill was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this auto repair facility!
      -Terry Foley - Frankfort IL

    • I cannot begin to tell you how very much I appreciate the INCREDIBLE service I received from your staff ! I have been in the customer service business for over 30 years, I certainly have no problems recognizing EXCELLENT SERVICE and let me tell you your team GETS IT. From the helpful phone call to your shop when I was stranded at Home Depot to the tow truck driver calling to confirm to me that my truck was picked up...I will not ever take my truck anywhere else and you have a customer for life. I will tell everyone I know to do the same. Keep up the good work!
      -Diana ( Di ) McConnell

    • To all of you -a BIG- thank you for all the time and effort you put into my car! I don't really know all the things you do but its much better now. The steering is better, the breaks feel better, and in general it just feels better to drive!
      -Phyllis Farber

    • Dear Wayne, Thank you for your note regarding my Audi TT alignment mishap and for being so noble as to stand behind the work done at Midwest Engine. I'm sure it is difficult at times, when trying to run a business well, to negotiate mishaps, both with customers and your staff, and I appreciate that your rose to the occasion and did the right thing by me, even as a cost to you.

    • You not only delivered what you said you were going to in the time you quoted, you went out of your way to fix two additional items for us, offered us a rental car and came in with a fair price.
      -Sandy M.


    • After (3) days of boating, Sat, Sun. & Mon. Eve, I'm certain you did not put the right engine back!! It is not the same. It is running far better than I could wish. Thanks for making my old boat new again.
      -Keith G., 1986 Sea Ray 230 HP 305 Chevy Engine


    • Just a big thank you for your excellent service, and for the times where I thought I was facing many $100's of dollars in repair costs that turned into only a fraction of cost because of your honesty. It's greatly appreciated to have an honest business that I can count on for my auto maintenance! Thank you!
      -Tammy B.


    • We want to thank you for the assistance you provided us on Saturday December 30th. We needed to get back to Michigan and even though you were closed you helped us out. We never would have made it home without you! Thank you.
