Good mechanics in Denver?

Does anyone have recommendations for good shops in Denver? I've heard of TC's Performance and Gaylord's Garage. They're a little far, but if they're good I guess I'll go there. There's a new shop close to me on Colfax called 5280 Automotive but I don't know much about them. If anyone has had any other experiences or recs, I'd appreciate the input.

TC Performance is good, he does know his stuff. Even though some of his prices are a bit high, he does take really good care of you, and also looks out for your car and address small matters that bigger dealerships tend to overlook.

I had to go to Gaylord's to do my rear wheel bearing cause TC's was booked for a solid week before he can work on it. Gaylords was okay, i had them change out my transmission fluid, but the shifts are still kinda rough. Plus the rear wheel that they worked on, for some reason, that tire lost alot of it's tread quick!

I'd say DIY, if not, save up and have TC's do it. I had TC give me a quote of $556 to do my timing belt service, which includes timing belt, h2o pump, t-stat, drive belts and coolant flush. Unless i can find the job for 400 flat, i'd rather just pay the extra money and have Tobi do it right.

You could also go to N-Vision Auto Designs. They do more custom stuff but know their way around an engine. They are in Denver on Park Ave. West and Broadway.

Yea, I haven't heard really any good or bad things about Trenz. They seem kinda pricey though. I told my nephew to register but, I don't think he's a big forum person. He 's also supose to come to the meet.

about the transmission..

try using Seafoam: Transmission flush on that. it costs about $7 from autozone/checkers, and it works like wonders and making the tranmission shift like it's new.

unless your tranmissions is just fawked

and I recommend Seafoam to everyone, everyone with under 150,000 miles on their motor.

I am going to run Seafoam on a CR-V and my friend's Civic tomorrow morning before he starts working..
