Routine Maintenance and Engine Problems

People love vehicles that drive with no problems for many years and many miles. Your vehicle does need regular maintenance to achieve being driven for years without leaving you stranded. Engine problems are often a result of missed maintenance though aged vehicles tend to have problems more often, even with maintenance.

 

How can I tell I have a problem?

There are many symptoms of engine problems. Most vehicles are smart enough to offer a check engine light for when problems are creeping up. You shouldn’t ignore a check engine light. Bring it in the J&S Auto Repair and we’ll help! Otherwise, problems are often associated with oil. Oil is vital to your engine to keep fast moving parts from rubbing against each other in a negative way. An oil leak, dirty oil, or not having enough oil can quickly cause major problems that damage the engine. 

 

Many engines sputter or provide an oil light if you are getting low on oil. Another way to tell is simply opening your hood and checking the dipstick when you are getting gas, especially if you have an older vehicle with potential problems. Look at your driveway or parking space too and see if oil is leaking out.

 

Engine performance is an obvious sign. If your vehicle is making unusual noises, bring it in to J&S Auto Repair right away and our ASE Certified Technicians can help diagnose the problem. We offer clear communication and friendly prices, as well as financing, especially for major problems.

 

Other engine performance problems can come in the forms of gaskets or seals. One indicator that the seals that hold compression together in your vehicle are bad is that you might not have working heat in the vehicle, or the heat only works when traveling at higher speed.
