Engine Maintenance and Repair Services

The engine is what makes a car, a car. It serves as the heart of your vehicle.  The engine’s job is to convert fuel into energy by combining and igniting the proper mixture of fuel and air. It then turns the energy into the rotary force used to accelerate the vehicle.

Engine maintenance is vital to the performance and overall lifespan of your vehicle. Certain preventative maintenance services like oil changes should be performed regularly and important components like spark plugs, timing belts, fuel injection systems, head gaskets and ignition wires/cables should be inspected regularly.

Similar to the transmission, the engine consists of multiple moving parts. Modern engines are fitted with monitoring sensors. The computer system in your vehicle receives data from these sensors and switches which control your ignition, fuel, oil, cooling systems and emissions. When one of these systems fails or shorts, it triggers the computer system to turn on the check engine light. If this light starts blinking, pull over immediately and contact us immediately.

A flashing check engine light is usually an indication of a serious and urgent issue that needs to be addressed right away. If it stays illuminated, the problem may be less of an emergency.

Signs your engine may need to be serviced:

  • Check engine light
  • Knocking and squealing
  • Poor fuel economy
  • Warning lights on the dashboard
  • Poor performance / loss of power
  • Engine stalling out
  • Hard starting
  • Leaking fluid
  • Chugging
  • Car won’t start
  • Overheating
  • Engine misfires

Our Engine Repair Services Include

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.

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.

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..

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.

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.
