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 319-377-0190 Horn Automotive 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 Horn Automotive, we will have a knowledgeable service professional check for cracked heads on your car's engine.

Custom Engines

Our background in custom projects gives us the expertise to build your dream vehicle for cruising, off-roading, or auto shows.

Fluid Recycling
Fluids are vital to engine operations. Replacing and disposing of used fluids (oil and other coolants) is both time consuming and costly. By recycling fluids, you will cut your costs and save the environment! Horn Automotive offers a fluid recycling service. For all your fluid recycling needs call or visit Horn Automotive today. Unlike other recyclers, we offer you personalized reclamation options that meet your specific needs.

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 Horn Automotive's machine shop, we have the necessary press machines and qualified staff to press your car's U joints.

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 Horn Automotive, we will inspect your heads, determine whether they need milling, and shave them. Call us today or visit our machine shop in Marion, IA 52302.

Used Oil Drop-Off Location
Recycling used oil from your car is simple and good for the environment. To have your used oil recycled, you need to take it to a used oil drop-off location like Horn Automotive. We collect used oil for recycling as a service to our customers and the environment. Give us a call today 319-377-0190.

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 319-377-0190 or visit Horn Automotive for all your valve job needs.
