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 978-741-1296 SS Automotive Inc. today. Our machine shop has the necessary machinery and staff to bore your car's engine block.
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 SS Automotive Inc., we will have a knowledgeable service professional check for cracked heads on your car's engine.
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 978-741-1296 or visit SS Automotive Inc. today.
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 SS Automotive Inc., we will inspect your heads, determine whether they need milling, and shave them. Call us today or visit our machine shop in Salem, MA 01970.

I have used SS Auto many times and refer them to anyone that asks me about getting auto repair done. Jim, along with all the other workers are beyond polite, honest, fair up front pricing, and the quality of work is exceptional. I will never use any other shop. From having a custom motor built for my 88 trans am to an oil change look no further. If you want it done right the 1st time for a very fair price this is the place.
