Troubleshooting Common Engine Issues

Car Engine Repair

Each and every car that is traveling on a road is likely to be different to your car in terms of specifications, color, type, and brand. Not only are such cars different in terms of their consumption of gasoline and performance mechanisms, they also differ from one another in terms of engine type, engine specification, etc.

While most cars on the road have different engines to each other, most of them are likely to go through the same engine problems over the course of the car’s life. Engine problems tend to be the same in most cars owing to the similarity in their causes.

This blog highlights the leading causes of engine trouble common in most cars.

A Faulty Cooling System

A cooling system that isn’t up to the mark is one of the leading reasons for engine problems. Lack of effective cooling will allow the engine of the car to heat up thereby hampering engine performance. Faulty cooling systems are likely to contain faulty fan belts, and a low output cooling fan. Leaks of coolants fluids from the car can also lead to problems in the performance of an engine. The best way to avoid such problems is to make sure your car’s cooling systems is in pristine condition every time you plan to go on a ride.

Wear And Tear Or Damage To The Engine Parts

A good engine performance depends on all the parts in that engine working at full capacity. If you car’s engine has some faulty parts this will restrict the engine from reaching its full potential. Some parts of the engine that are more prone to wear and tear and damage are the ignition wires, caps, spark plugs and rotors. The presence of worn out components will create unnatural noises of the engine, heating up of the engine and unnecessary surges in the engine. The best way to prevent your engine running with faulty components is to get your car’s engine inspected and services regularly.

Variations In The Level Of Engine Oil

Engine oil has an important role to play not only in the running of the engine but also in terms of its lubrication and friction resistance. It is imperative that you use the correct type and viscosity of engine oil to make sure there are no hiccups in the running of the engine. If you change the type or amount of engine oil in the car, that is likely to show on the engine’s performance. Any unnatural change will be indicated by the car through a fault occurring in the engine.

Faulty Ignition

The car’s ignition system is the key to the running of the car, since ignition systems are what start your car’s engine in the first place. There are several parts that play an important role in ignition which include ignition wires, rotor ignition and spark plugs. Any fault in either would mean that the ignition would become faulty. A fault in the car’s tends to slow down the engine’s working speed. This would mean that the speed of the car and the engine’s responsive will be affected. To make sure that isn’t the case with your car the best way is to continually check the spark plugs, ignition rotors and wires for any hint of damage that might affect car performance.
