Common Types of Engine Repair Needs
The tough part about oil-related engine repair needs is they are often preventable. The engine needs oil to prevent the fast-moving metal parts within the engine from clanging together too much, and without it, the engine will promptly fail.
A simple leak in the oil pan or within the engine can provide the space necessary for oil to just leave. While vehicles tend to have a low oil warning light and a low oil pressure light, it might be too late when they come in!
In addition to repairing or replacing your oil pan, we at Holland Auto can help find leaks which are causing low levels of oil.
Belts and Hoses
Many engines are a weave of a timing belt and may hoses which carry fluid like gasoline, oil, and coolant all around your engine
The timing belt provides the engine with the right timing for the movement of many of the most important parts, like pistons and rods. Without the timing belt delivering precise, well, timing, the engine is at high risk of having some of these parts collide and cause some serious damage. Holland Auto Care can inspect your timing belt and ensure it gets replaced or repaired before it causes larger issues.
Coolant helps siphon off the heat caused by combustion and moving metal. Without enough coolant at the right time, the temperature will rise in your engine and probably cause a quick need for engine repair as the metals within can bend.
Holland Auto can look at the necessary hoses and reservoirs, as well as your thermostat, to make sure your engine gets the cooling fluid it needs.
Spark plugs don’t need changing as often as your oil, but their performance is still crucial to the overall driveability and efficiency of your vehicle. While not considered a major engine repair, spark plugs are a small but potent battery that helps your vehicle promote starting and combustion.
These parts can get worn out over time, or in the case of oil and other leaks, have a high potential to get dirty and fouled up, which also affects how well they work.
Holland Auto knows there are many parts of your engine which needs a little help once in a while. We recommend bringing your vehicle to us for routine maintenance so we can keep an eye on the happenings under the hood and educate you just a bit on what to look for. We look forward to earning your future business!
