Engine/Valve Decarbon Treatment

We are able to repair the pixels in your instrument cluster or stereo and air conditioning faceplate in-house, saving you time and money, rather than having yours sent out for repair. We can also repair most geared speedometer and odometers as well. Most repairs to these items take two to three days to complete properly.
