Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD to help you protect your investment. Call us at 303-278-8766 or visit our shop in Golden 80401.



These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 303-278-8766 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 303-278-8766 or visit Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD in Golden, CO 80401. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD in Golden, CO 80401.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 303-278-8766 or visit Andersen's Foreign Car Service, LTD today.

    Andersen's has been servicing my 1979 Volvo since my father bought the car in 1979. After I inherited the car from my father, I have continued to use Andersen's for the last 26 years. I have always received excellent service from Andersen's, as did my father, and I will continue to use Andersen's services for as long as my old Volvo lasts.

    The Andersen brothers are very knowledgeable and very honest. My car repairs are consistently less than what they originally quote me and if something doesn't need to be done they are upfront and telling me so and why. They used to take good care of my mother's old Mercedes ('85) and I knew when I got my Mercedes that this was the place I wanted to go to have her taken care of.

    I?ve been taking my 04 Dodge diesel here for about 4 years now for its yearly emissions inspection. Every time I am greeted with a smile and quick, professional service. I?ve never taken a car in for repairs but should I ever need it, I would not hesitate to bring it here. The shop is always clean and they are extremely timely. Would leave more than 5 stars if possible. Thank you for being a dependable shop!

    Happy Holidays! Curt helped me even when not local. He took the time to look up a warranty which helped save me $. He has a customer for life as soon as I love back to Golden. They have been fixing my car for 2 years. Fair pricing, no surprises, and they stand by their repairs.

    We have been customers at Andersen's for over 25 years. I trust them completely. We have taken Volvos and BMWs there without any complaints as to the quality of service received.

  • reviewicon


    Kurt is the best!! We have been customers for nearly twenty years and Andersen has serviced our Volvos, Mercedes, BMWs and MINIs, both gas and diesel, for minor and major repairs. It's hard to find an honest shop but Andersen is the real deal! Always timely, reasonably priced and up-front. I will only have my cars serviced here.

    A few months ago, I discovered a gas leak that appeared to be around the gas tank of my 2005 E55 AMG Mercedes. I ordered this car in 2004...it's my all time favorite car. I had the car towed to Andersen's in Golden. A couple of days later I get a call from Kurt Andersen. They had inspected the car and found the leak. Before proceeding with the work, they checked for any outstanding recalls on my car and, amazingly, found an open recall campaign that had been issued on my car years ago. I had never received any notice of the recall. Kurt called Mercedes of Denver to verify that the recall was valid. To make a long story short, Mercedes covered over $2,000 in parts and labor...Andersen could have easily made the repairs and charged me, but they didn't, they took the extra step for the customer. I sum this all up in one word, INTEGRITY. A rare commodity in many businesses today. Thank you to Andersen's.

    Been going to these guys for years for my old diesel. Tried a different place a while back and quickly returned to Andersen with no regrets. I will echo other comments about it being an honest shop.

    I really have enjoyed working with the staff at Andersen's. I will normally try to do the repairs myself, but when I can't, I trust that they will do a good job at a good price.

    They are honest and hard working, not to mention considerate. I would highly recommend Andersen's.
