Lowell's Auto Repair Car Engine Repair
Car engine repair involves diagnosing and fixing problems with the engine of a car. The engine is the heart of the car and is responsible for converting fuel into energy that powers the vehicle.
Common issues that can occur with a car engine include:
Overheating: This can be caused by a malfunctioning thermostat, a leak in the cooling system, or a broken water pump.
Low oil pressure: This can be caused by a worn oil pump, a clogged oil filter, or low oil levels.
Misfiring: This can be caused by a faulty spark plug, a clogged fuel injector, or a malfunctioning ignition coil.
Noisy engine: This can be caused by worn bearings, a loose timing belt, or low oil levels.
Check engine light: This can be caused by a variety of issues, such as a faulty oxygen sensor, a damaged catalytic converter, or a malfunctioning engine control module.
When diagnosing and repairing engine problems, a mechanic will typically perform a series of tests to determine the root cause of the issue. These tests may include a visual inspection, a compression test, a leak-down test, or a computer diagnostic scan.
Once the problem has been identified, we will then replace or repair any damaged or worn components as necessary. This may include replacing spark plugs, repairing the cooling system, replacing the timing belt, or rebuilding the engine.
It’s important to keep up with regular maintenance, such as oil changes and tune-ups, to help prevent major engine problems from occurring in the first place. And if you do experience any issues with your car’s engine, it’s best to have them addressed as soon as possible to avoid further damage and costly repairs down the road.
