Get better engine performance with Z’s Car Care full-engine overhaul.

Providing Car Repairs for Over 35 Years

Your car’s engine will eventually deteriorate after years of usage. While you can buy a new engine, there are ways to save your original motor. A complete engine overhaul, in this case, is your best bet.

Overhauls preserve your car’s original engine and save you cash! However, only a garage with a record of excellent service can give you that value. Z’s Car Care has decades of experience in professional overhauling services in Hillsboro, Oregon that fits the bill.

Benefits of an Engine Overhaul

An engine overhaul involves rebuilding an engine by repairing or replacing worn or damaged parts to restore it to its original condition. Here are a couple of reasons why overhauling engines is generally recommended over purchasing new ones:
An engine overhaul is often more cost-effective than buying a new engine. Rebuilding an engine costs less than purchasing a new one, especially for older or classic vehicles where new engines or parts0 may not be readily available.
With an engine overhaul, you can extend the life of your current engine, avoiding the need to replace it entirely. This is especially beneficial if the rest of your vehicle is in good condition and you want to keep it on the road for as long as possible.
Overhauling your engine can improve its performance, restore lost power, and increase fuel efficiency. New parts can help reduce your engine’s wear and tear and enhance its overall performance.

I really like this business. It was easy to schedule an appointment and my car was ready faster than expected. The guys are really friendly and always do a nice job. They never try to sell me a bunch of work my car doesn’t need.

Z’s is under new ownership but the excellent quality I had before is still in full swing. They diagnosed my vehicle problem and found the right parts and fixed it all with less than a 24 hour turnaround. No easy feat considering the vehicle is 27 years old.

The best car care we’ve ever received! We have taken two of our cars in to Z’s, one for a repair and the other for troubleshooting. Customer care was incredible! They quickly and very reasonably fixed our first car (while communicating with us throughout the day) and assisted us with figuring out the issue with our second car at no charge. We won’t be taking our cars anywhere else!

We have only used Zs as our mechanic for all of our vehicles since our first cars back in the 80's. These guys really know there stuff, and we are always quite satisfied with their service and thriftiness. Great service and fair prices. Wouldn't even consider anyone else to work on our cars. Thank you Delbert! 🙂

My family and I have been taking our vehicles to Z's Car Care for 21 yrs now. Everything from a 1964 Ford Pickup to a 2014 Honda Civic Coupe, and they have always been able to handle whatever problem it has been. Knowledgeable, very well priced and beyond both of these trust worthy. And the staff and owners are an absolute joy to work with, a repair shop you can always count on.

I depend on Z's for all my car care needs. They do great work and keep careful records, so if you can't remember the last time you had a brake job, they can look it up for you. Also, if a part they sell fails while still under warranty, they will tell you that, too. I simply won't let anybody else touch my car.

I've been a customer of Z's for well over 10 years and everything I have taken there has been explained thoroughly and repaired correctly. The few times in which parts that have been replaced that don't work properly, Delbert and team stand by their work and repair or replace on warranty, free of charge. Z's is really the only place you want to take any of your vehicles. Honest assessments and repair... And they stand behind it all.

Very prompt, professional, thorough and honest. That's probably the best combination one wants in looking for a car repair/service company. My wife and I had a pre-purchase inspection done with them and we were well pleased. We purchased the vehicle.

Absolutely the best customer service I've received in more years than I can remember. Sent step-sons truck there to get ready for the drive to his next duty station, after 3yrs on Okinawa. Gave a great discount for his military service, plus delivered back to my house, since I'd had surgery and was not able to drive it. Truly wonderful people and great mechanics.
