The function of the engine of a vehicle can be compared to the function of the heart in a human body, once the engine is faulty or stops working, the whole vehicle will undoubtedly be unable to move. That is why it is of the utmost importance to keep an eye on the engine of your vehicle at all times. In order for a vehicle to be running smoothly, it is important for your engine to undergo regular servicing, maintenance, and repairs, to ensure optimum performance of the vehicle each time you drive.

With our staff having years of experience in all things auto, you can be confident that when you choose us for service, repairs and even tips on how to keep your engine running at its best performance, we have you covered. We care about getting you delivered with the best services ever, so we also consider the most cost-effective solution available for all your engine repair needs.

When should you consider servicing your engine or bringing it in for repairs?

Your vehicle is only as good as your engine, so keeps these in mind:

  • The more frequent your engine oil is being changed, the longer your engine will last so around every 4,000 – 6,000 miles, engine oil should be changed or in some cases, you can change the oil every 6,000 – 10,000 miles but recommend following your mechanic’s advice.
  • When your engine starts making noises besides the usual sounds, that is reason enough to bring your vehicle in for a check by our technicians to find out what is the cause.
  • There is a “Check engine” light on the dashboard to indicate the vehicle detects an issue either mechanically or electronically. It might be that the transmission needs service, the fuel pump needs replacing, or the air conditioning system may not be working properly. Whatever the reason, a technician can help you identify and solve the problem with your engine.
  • Belts in the engine compartment are to be checked by technicians occasionally for tears and wears and to be replaced if not found in a good condition. Your vehicle’s engine has a number of mechanical parts attached to it that perform essential functions like delivering power, cooling your engine (the water pump), helping you to drive/steer easily (the power steering pump) and keeping you comfortable (the air conditioner). Without a drive belt, none of these parts would work. When not replaced, this might lead to more severe damages that would most probably cost more during the life of the vehicle.
  • Engine oil levels should be checked by the owner as frequently as possible for there might be some slight and hardly noticeable leaks that might not be noticed immediately but over time. The oil check will include the oil filter, oil level, and the state of the oil, if it looks “spent” it’ll need to be changed.
  • Engine performance analysis needs to be monitored and observed. If indications or warning lights are being displayed on the dashboard, or if your vehicle doesn’t perform or performs different from the known everyday performance or when it just doesn’t seem right, remember that we have technicians who have the best training and the best test equipment at their disposal. They will check, diagnose and analyze the cause correctly and get your vehicle running right again. 
  • When your engine does not start, hard starts, or idles roughly, there are various components to be considered. The starter will need to be inspected to determine if the problem is the starter, the alternator, or the solenoid. If any of those components are failing, then they will need to be replaced. When not promptly replaced, this can lead to prolonged cranking without an engine start as well as more complicated repairs needed when not treated right away. Clogged Fuel Filters might also be a problem for why you are having engine problems. A fuel filter that is clogged can make a vehicle very difficult to start. When the vehicle is proving hard to start, the best thing to do is to get our technicians to have a look at the vehicle’s engine to diagnose what is actually wrong with the engine.
  • Poor fuel economy is a problem that a vehicle can have but is hardly noticed especially when the increase in fuel consumption is minimal. The first step to take after noticing this is to have our technicians diagnose the engine. Air filters need to be cleaned so that the engine can work at its peak performance. Your spark plugs are responsible for combustion in your gasoline engines. If they misfire or are working poorly, this can affect your gas mileage in a negative way. Having bad fuel injectors can cause bad mileage. The best solution on how to minimize fuel consumption by your vehicle will always be explained to you by our technicians.
  • Difficulty in transmission shifting or poor acceleration is a problem that in no doubt arises because of a related problem with your engine or transmission. The symptoms of a vehicle not accelerating as it should occur on many high mileage vehicles. As the driver might not notice these signs in normal day to day driving, they become abundantly clear when you are driving up a steep hill or when quickly trying to accelerate into fast-moving traffic. The most notable causes can include but not limited to the mass airflow sensor being clogged or malfunctioning, the oxygen sensor malfunctioning, Throttle Position Sensor malfunctioning, a dirty or cloggy fuel filter, cloggy or dirty air filters, and even the timing belt.

There can always be any number of other problems related to the check engine light or engine repairs that you might encounter with your vehicle. If you wish to identify the exact engine repair reason, then please bring it to us and one of our ASE certified technicians will be able to diagnose and repair your engine quickly and efficiently.
