Taking care of your vehicle’s engine is vital. Full engine replacement is one of the most costly repairs a vehicle may need. When issues arise, completing repairs immediately and maintaining proper engine maintenance will prolong your engine’s life. Be aware of oil leaks or the check engine light, both are signs there is a problem in the system.
When you see the check engine light, do not panic. The computer monitors how the engine is running and indicates any problems with the check engine light. However, a diagnostic check is needed to determine how serious the issue is. It could be as easy as a loose gas cap or as serious as broken fuel injectors. The timing belt is the most common major service the engine needs and should be done at 60,000 to 80,000 miles.
An engine is a complex machine with hundreds of moving parts, electrical systems, and complicated mechanical parts. It operates at a high temperature, and if any part breaks, it could overheat.
