Yes, we are open!
At Automotive Revival, our customers’ safety is our highest priority, and not just with how well your car runs. Given the current situation and the lockdown in Denver, we have taken steps to make you feel safe if you need to bring your car in for repairs (yes, auto repair shops are one of the essential businesses allowed to stay open). We are sanitizing our waiting area regularly, but you can also drop your car off out front and just give us the keys. Then we can do all the communicating over the phone to minimize contact. And if there are other steps you need us to take to make you feel safe, please feel free to call us and we will do our best to accommodate you. Our number is 720-331-2776 and nothing makes us happier than making our customers happy … and their cars.
At Automotive Revival, we find that it’s better to have you return for follow-up work than to have you come back with an attorney. We strive not only for customer satisfaction but their trust.
We stand by our service and install factory OEM parts when applicable, to ensure the best performance and customer satisfaction.
We strive to provide consistent and timely service and do our best to accommodate your schedule.
Who We Are
We take pride in the quality service that we offer our customers
Automotive Revival was formerly a classic car restoration shop, but in 2007, we rebranded to our current form, to service all makes and models. This was due to a growing demand from our customers and their friends and families. At Automotive Revival, we strive to build long-term customer relationships with honesty and integrity, using a one-on-one approach to service.
Dave's Car Chat
We have been committed to serving Denver in auto repair for more than 15 years, striving to keep our customers’ auto repair service experience the best in Denver!
We gladly service all makes and models of cars and trucks.
Includes OEM spark plugs, any applicable parts. Courtesy inspection offered. (Platinum plugs extra.) Tune-ups are now including cabin air filters – please ask an associate for details.
Check Engine Light
The Check Engine Light (CEL) is a warning indicator — it means your vehicle’s computer has determined that an engine component or your emission control system is not behaving properly. We check this for free and tell you exactly what it means.
Not starting? The battery is the main component and we provide a free battery test and related charging system diagnosis.
Power windows not working? Door locks? We inspect this system as well.
Slow pedal response, odd noises, wobbling, or just generally poor braking performance. This can be caused by worn out pads, rotors, shoes, or a failure of a hydraulic component. These items are thoroughly inspected with every brake system inspection.
Air & Heat
Replacing worn belts, hose/lines, compressors and refrigerant leak checks. The AC not blowing cold is the most common complaint. To diagnose this problem, a general inspection of the entire system and related components is necessary.
Adversely, a lack of heat is another common issue, and is sometimes due to a faulty thermostat or a failed water pump. Other factors can contribute as well, and we can provide a complete cooling system diagnosis in order to locate the problem.
Is your car riding funny, handling poor, or making noise? Springs, shocks, struts, upper and lower control arms, and sway bar components – these are the major players in a car’s suspension, and we provide a thorough inspection of this system.
Timing Belt & Water Pump
Replacing the timing belt at factory intervals is highly recommended, as timing belts can wear out and break – potentially damaging engines.
A failing water pump can potentially leak coolant and cause leaking/overheating issues. The water pump on most modern cars is run by the timing belt, and is recommended to be replaced with a new timing belt.
We inspect the entire engine cooling and heating system, such as belts, hoses, and thermostat. A Regularly scheduled cooling system flush is also recommended.
Clutch & Driveline
Clutch system inspection components include clutch kit, flywheel, and related clutch components.
Driveline components include CV axles, drive shafts, and related components. We provide a complete inspection of this system.
Is your vehicle pulling to one side? Is your steering wheel off-center when you are driving in a straight line? Tires wearing uneven? You could need an alignment. We provide this service to help keep them wearing evenly.
Inspection, repair and replace. Recommended tire rotation is every 6,000 miles, or every other oil change.
Used Vehicle Inspection
We also provide inspections to potential purchases, as we know that buying a used vehicle is a big commitment and you should know what you’re getting into. We give it The Eyeball from top to bottom and end-to-end, with a test drive. This gives you a nice little report to present to the seller so the bartering can begin.
Performance & Classic Restorations
Whether it’s your hot-rod Impala, or your grocery-getting Brady Bunch wagon, we have a handle on the pre-computer past. Please call for details.

Anthony R.Central Denver
“Dave was fantastic! Talked me through what I needed done throughout the week, until I could get an appointment set up. The service was great, and the waiting room was exceptionally welcoming for an auto repair store! I will definitely be returning here for future auto repairs, and encourage anyone to give him a shot!”
Joshua D.San Jose, CA
“Dave is very honest, confident, and all around great guy. He walked me through the problems and made sure everything else was running smoothly. Don't let the location fool you. The garage is tucked away in the corner of building, but it's huge and things are done correctly in the hands of men with great knowledge and experience.”
Christopher F.Central Denver
“Good guys. They can service everything from my classic muscle to my modern truck. They were able to get it done right and on time. Give the money to the man whose hand you shake. Hard working men deserve the bounty.”
