Trust Your Engine with a Master Mechanic

Your vehicle’s engine requires the utmost care and attention. Have an expert specialist at Master AutoTech take a look.

Signs of Engine Problems

Check Engine Light

Have you seen a new light on your dashboard? The most obvious sign of engine trouble is when the “Check Engine” or “Service Engine Soon” light comes on. It can indicate various issues within the engine or related systems.

Strange Noises

Heard any knocking, ticking, grinding, or clicking coming from under the hood? These noises may indicate issues with engine components or fluid levels.

Reduced Power or Performance

If your vehicle isn’t going as fast as it normally does, or if it struggles to accelerate, your engine could be the culprit. This might result from problems with the fuel or ignition systems.

Poor Fuel Efficiency

You might notice a significant drop in miles per gallon (MPG) without an obvious explanation, such as changes in driving habits or conditions, which can indicate engine problems like fuel system issues, faulty sensors, or worn-out components.

Rough Idling

If your car’s rumbling when idle, with noticeable vibrations or stalling, it could be a sign of issues with the fuel system, ignition system, or engine components.

Engine Overheating

Consistent overheating can both cause and be caused by engine damage, so keep an eye on rising temperature gauge readings. If you see steam coming from under the hood, there may be cooling system problems, a malfunctioning thermostat, or a faulty water pump.

Fluid Leaks

 It’s rarely a good sign to see puddles or spots of fluid under your parked vehicle without obvious cause like rain or sprinklers. This can indicate leaks from various engine components, including oil, coolant, transmission fluid, or power steering fluid.

Burning Smells

Any unusual odors should be taken seriously. If you smell burning oil, coolant, or rubber, these smells may suggest leaks or overheating.

Hard Starting or No Start

There’s a number of reasons why your car could be having difficulty starting, especially in cold weather. It could be due to problems with the battery, starter, ignition system, or fuel delivery.

Excessive Vibrations

Like with idling, any abnormal vibrations felt while driving, especially at certain speeds or when accelerating, can be a sign of engine or transmission problems.

Excessive Exhaust Smoke

If things look a little smoky, keep an eye on the color of the smoke. Here’s what each can signify:

Blue smoke: Indicates burning oil, possibly due to worn piston rings or valve seals.

White smoke: Could be a sign of a coolant leak into the combustion chamber, possibly due to a blown head gasket.

Black smoke: Typically suggests a rich fuel mixture, indicating a problem with the fuel injection or air intake system.

Visible Damage

Doing a visual inspection of the engine compartment can reveal a lot on its own. You could see visible damage or loose components, such as disconnected hoses, damaged belts, or loose wires.

If you notice any of these symptoms, it’s advisable to have your vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic to diagnose and address the underlying engine issues promptly.It’s important to note that these signs can vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle, but ignoring any of these signs can lead to even more severe and costly problems in the long run.

Our engine repair services are designed to address these issues promptly, saving you time and money in the long run. If you don’t, these underlying problems may worsen over time.

My car broke down during a trip to Brigham City from Salt Lake City. Master Muffler took care of me going well above and beyond. The price they quoted was just and accurate. I was happy and I believe they were honest and good with their treatment of me and the issue. I’ve used this Master Muffler in the past and have always felt good about the interaction. I’d recommend them as a mechanic to go to.

~Matt Eyre

They always are courteous and the work I want done is all that is done. They never try to sell you something you don’t need. Their prices are good and I trust what they say is what they will do. If anyone in Brigham needs work done I would not hesitate to recommend Master muffler.

~ Henry Kuglar

“I’ve worked with Jeremy and Jared over there and both are great people who care about their customers.  I definitely have had my share of bad experiences with auto mechanics but not here.  I have found them honest in all my interactions to date (several) and quite reasonably priced based upon my experience.  They do way more than mufflers and brakes also so don’t let the name hold you back.  In fact, I have only seen them for other repairs and maintenance.  Will go back!”

~ Tyson Hemphill

Master Muffler is great.  Had some issues with my car and they went above and beyond to take care of it.  Jeremy and Jared really are great to work with.  Would highly recommend.

~ Zenock Bishop

Jared is the real MVP. Everyone was so nice here and they got us  in after breaking down on the highway. Highly recommend this amazing service. Now we can safely get back home.
