​Our work

We know engines.

Better yet, we're highly-skilled in modern advanced re-manufacturing processes, having worked for years as a factory-authorized rebuilder for many of the top names in the global engine business – no matter the brand or work application.

In addition, our well-equipped Engine Rebuilding Machine Shop ​let's us complete and finish-out your engine without having to wait for another shop to do their part of the process, meaning we cut-out delays that can cost you time and money.

We're located near Breezewood, PA – conveniently just off the Pennsylvania Turnpike (I-76) and not far from U.S Route 30. That means easy on-and-off access to get your engine to us, or we can arrange for easy pick-up and delivery.


​​LaSalle Engines took its cue back in 1985 from Charles ('Charlie') LaSalle Sr., long-known in our area as a businessman who believed 

in treating every customer fairly, and with a deep sense of integrity for standing behind his work.

Since then, son Chuck (Charles LaSalle Jr.) has conducted business the very same way – and broadened the skills and expertise available at LaSalle Engines through his commitment to continuing that sense of service excellence.

Today, the team consists of the following professional service members, who together, bring more than 100 years of automotive service and engine experience to meeting your needs the next time you require professional engine work.

When we're asked to build an engine or re-manufacture an existing powerplant, you can rest assured you'll leave trouble-free with the added peace-of-mind that your work was handled by a team of skilled professionals who wouldn't want it any other way!
