Understanding Auto Service Tasks

Hello, my name is Davey Jerome. Welcome to my site about auto service. When I was a young boy, the first task I learned to perform on my dad’s truck was an oil change. I delighted in letting the old oil flow out into the drain pan and removing the old filter. Adding the new filter and oil seemed to rejuvenate that old truck and ready it for another day of work on the farm. I will use this site to explore the process of performing automotive services on your own. I hope you can use the information on my site to learn about this important task.

Why Take Your Car To The Engine Repair Shop

If you have a car that is not operating as it should, then you should take it to an engine repair shop. This is a shop that can help diagnose what is wrong with your car and get it back to proper running condition again.

A mechanic can, and often does, specialize in certain areas of vehicle repair needs. If you have an engine concern, then an engine repair shop is where you should go. Your car's engine is responsible for making sure your car goes when you start it — whatever makes your tires go when you turn your vehicle on. Your engine works in combination with several other parts under the hood, including the transmission, radiator, water pump, starter, solenoid, and more.

Here are reasons to take your car to an engine repair shop. Once the pistons in your engine have worn out, you may lose your engine entirely, so don't wait until you have a severe engine problem to get the care you need.

Your car is leaking engine fluid

Engine fluid, or engine oil, is something you never want to see under your vehicle. If you check the dipstick to your engine oil regularly, you'll know when it's low. Don't fill your engine oil yourself unless it's very low or you risk overfilling it, which is also not good. Go to an engine repair mechanic to see why your car is leaking engine oil and what can be done about it.

Your car is smoking

Does your car smoke when it's running? This can be related to your engine or be a radiator or other issue, but all problems that happen to your car can affect the engine and vice versa. A smoking or burning engine is not a good thing and can lead to an engine catching on fire or leaving you stranded out on the road with a broken vehicle. Never operate a burning vehicle or a car with an engine that burns 'hot'.

Take your vehicle immediately to the engine repair shop if you're worried about your engine running hot or having other problems. There may be a problem with your thermostat, circulation, or operating features, and the sooner you have them repaired, the better your engine will run. Report all engine problems you've been experiencing to your automotive engine repair specialist. They'll look at your vehicle and make repairs as needed once they have your approval to work on your car.
