mechanic working on car engine

If your car engine is making strange noises, smoking, or not performing as well as it used to, it might be time to check the engine. Many people are hesitant to take their car in for engine repair because they are afraid of the cost. However, engine repairs are often much cheaper than the alternative – buying a new car. In this blog post, we will discuss 5 signs that indicate you need engine repair. We will also give you tips on how to get an estimate and how to prepare your car for a check-up.

  1. Strange engine noises: 

If your engine makes a noise that sounds different than the normal engine hum, it’s time to take your car in for engine repair. Unusual engine noises can indicate a variety of issues inside the engine, so it’s important to have them checked out right away.

  1. Smoke from the engine: 

Seeing smoke coming from your engine is a clear sign that engine repair is in order. If you see smoke, it’s important to take your car in for engine repair as soon as possible, as this could be a sign of an internal engine problem or even something more dangerous like a fuel leak. 

  1. Poor engine performance: 

If your engine is struggling to start or seems like you’re losing power when accelerating, it could be a sign that engine repair is needed. A Master Muffler mechanic will be able to determine what the issue is and fix it accordingly.

  1. Check engine light: 

The check engine light is a sure sign that engine repair is needed. If your check engine light turns on, you should take your car in for engine repair immediately to prevent further damage or engine failure.

  1. Increase in fuel consumption: 

If you’ve noticed an increase in fuel consumption recently, it could be a sign of an engine issue. Poor engine performance or engine misfiring can cause your car to use more fuel than usual, so it’s important to have engine repairs done as soon as possible.

At Kearns Master Muffler, we will provide you with an estimate before any work is done, and a warranty on engine repairs. Lastly, we advise you to prepare the car for engine repair by clearing out the trunk and back seats so that the Master Muffler engine diagnostic team has plenty of room to work.

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, it’s important to get your engine checked out as soon as possible. In the meantime, here are a few tips for maintaining your car engine:

  • Keep your engine clean by regularly vacuuming and wiping down all surfaces.
  • Check engine fluids regularly and top them up as needed.
  • Use the right type of oil for your engine and change it according to the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Avoid overloading your car or driving in extremely hot or cold weather conditions.

Engine repair can feel overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. If you recognize any signs we mentioned above, it’s time to take your car in for engine repair and get it back on the road. 

Happy driving!
