What Do You Do About Engine Repairs?

The Little Engine (and Shop) That Could

Your passenger vehicle’s engine does a lot considering its compact size. Depending on the make and model you drive, the power plant that fits within the confines of the engine compartment may range from 70 to 200 horsepower. The average car unleashes about 40 horses when you press the accelerator. When you’re in the market for exceptional preventive maintenance services and engine repair, your best choice is the little shop that can. That’s Union Line Garage. We started as a part-time, one-person operation in a historical stagecoach fix-it shop, but you’ll now find our team of ASE-certified technicians at 1545 Reed Rd, Pennington, NJ 08534 in Pennington, New Jersey. To make an appointment for engine repair, use our online scheduler or call us at 609-466-0294.

Common Engine Troubles and Their Repairs

While we’ll need to check your vehicle using our diagnostic equipment, some needed engine repairs are more common than others that we can tell you about. Several engine issues are related to motor oil. Your automobile needs a sufficient supply of clean lubricant to run well and avoid catastrophe. That means you should monitor the oil level. Also, changing it periodically will help get rid of dirt or other debris that can otherwise find a new home on spark plugs, combustion chambers, and intake valves. Another potentially serious problem is a failing oil pump. Even if you have enough oil, it can’t get to the necessary places without the pump. Thus, a bad oil pump will need replacing. Combustion-related issues lead to necessary engine repairs, too. For instance, too much heat and pressure cause prolonged detonation (commonly known as spark knocking), damaging engine components (head gasket, pistons, and piston rings) over time. Likewise, insufficient compression is also a problem. Common culprits are holes in cylinders, worn piston rings, and broken valve seals. Yet another engine red flag relates to its ability to stay cool enough. You shouldn’t need to add coolant very often. If the level is soon low again after it has been topped off, we’ll need to check the cooling system for a leak. A clogged radiator is another problem that must be corrected to stop overheating. This condition is more likely to develop if water is used instead of coolant, leaving behind scaley mineral deposits.
