Starters and Ignition Repair For High-Performance Cars and Trucks

At Almaden Automotive in San Jose our expert mechanics can handle the precision auto repairs high-performance drivers expect. Drivers in San Jose count on Almaden Automotive to accurately reprogram automobile computers, outfit new cars and trucks with competition-grade ignition systems and upgrade starters for older muscle cars. Call today at 408-281-7303 to set up an appointment.

If you own a high-performance engine don't overlook a starter that struggles to turn over. The intense engine compression ratio of high-performance cars can burn out traditional OEM starters that are unable to get a car or truck pistons to move up and down fast enough. Adding a high torque starter and ignition system can add the extra cranking power a high-performance vehicle needs.

In addition, high-performance engines take up more space creating less room for the starter. High torque starters are lighter and smaller than an OEM starter to provide increased ground, oil pan, and header clearance. Turn over your engine reliably in the driveway or on the track and let Almaden Automotive install a new high-amp battery and high-torque mini starter today.

If you are restoring an older muscle car, Almaden Automotive can help you keep the power flowing by adding state of the art digital ignition controls, a performance distributor, and low-resistance ignition wires. Rely on the mechanics at Almaden Automotive to revitalize your older car's starter and ignition system with a new wiring harness, distributor cap, rotor and spark plugs. Stop by our auto repair shop in San Jose and discuss your restoration today.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon

    Very friendly staff. Got my old '91 truck in and out and fixed my problem (for now) with my A/C unit. It's an old truck and they gave me fair warning that the AC is on its way out. I appreciated their upfront, honest way of doing business. I can see why they have been there and in business for so long. They didn't try to force me into buying the brand new parts or make me feel pressured. Do good work and treat your customers with honesty and a friendly manner and you'll get return business. They do complete auto repair and would recommend them to friends and family.

    I've been taking my cars to Almaden Automotive for years, and it's about time I shared my opinion about their shop. Almaden Automotive is fantastic. The owner, John, and the gal who runs the place (all customer communications and so much more), Teresa, and the other mechanics are wonderful...I give Almaden Automotive my highest recommendation.
