Few performance systems within your vehicle are as important as the engine. It’s why your vehicle can move at all, so the system must always be in good health.

With a system as complex as the engine, it’s impossible to truly know what the specific cause of a problem may be. Even with our trained eyes, it can be difficult to determine what’s wrong without specialized equipment. But just because you can’t determine what the problem is, doesn’t mean you can’t figure out there is a problem. By knowing common warning signs, you can prevent additional damage from occurring to the engine. Here are a few common warning signs you should be aware of:
Although it’s normal for your vehicle to lose a little fuel efficiency over time, it isn’t normal if it’s a dramatic drop. If you feel like you’re visiting the pump a lot more often than before, then something’s likely wrong with the engine. This usually occurs from a fault in the way the engine consumes fuel. Having it serviced by a professional can help you save money in the long run, so we recommend service with our team promptly.
Do you feel like your car is struggling to gather speed? Does it seem like it’s barely making it over hills? Is the car shaking at high speeds? If you feel like your vehicle’s engine has lost some of its power, it likely has. These symptoms are common signs of power loss within an engine, and this will only get worse the longer you drive with it. If you experience these issues, please visit us immediately for a diagnostic service.
