Common Engine Troubles and Repairs

One of the biggest underlying factors in your engine’s health is proper lubrication. Motor oil prevents friction from destroying the moving metal parts, absorbs heat, and grabs onto debris. Preventive maintenance that includes regular oil and filter changes is crucial to maximizing engine performance and extending the vehicle’s life. Another related source of trouble may be the battery. This component may need maintenance, and it certainly needs testing periodically. Without the proper amount of stored energy, our engine cannot start. Likewise, aging spark plugs or damaged wires can disrupt engine firing. Safe engine operation also depends on keeping the temperature within a safe range. Therefore, common repairs include fixing a leaking or clogged radiator and repairing/replacing leaky hoses or connections that can allow the coolant to escape. Another often-needed repair is the replacement of oxygen sensors. These are needed to ensure an optimal air-fuel ratio for combustion. The combustion itself occurs in the cylinders. If these cylinders, the rings that seal them, or the pistons that compress the mixture during combustion become damaged, engine repair becomes necessary. Whether you drive a gasoline or diesel-powered model, our experienced mechanics can help you with these and other engine repairs.
