Common Causes of Engine Trouble

Engine is the main automotive component for any automobile. It works as the heart of the automobile. A vehicle’s engine is made up of complex components such as piston, crankshaft, sparkplug, timing belt, flywheel etc which cumulatively work alongside each other.  All of these parts need to be in perfect working condition for the car to run smoothly and efficiently at all times. Engine failure can cause your car to break down in the middle of the road. If such an unfortunate incident occurs, it’s best to contact Smart Mechanics in Bishops Stortford for smart recovery service

  1. Overheating Engine: If your vehicle’s cooling system has been damaged, or if the head gasket has blown, your engine may start to overheat very quickly. However other causes of overheating could include a bad thermostat, a faulty electric cooling fan, or a failed water pump. 
  2. Detonation: Detonation is caused by ill-timed combustion inside the engine that produces mass amounts of heat and pressure in the combustion chamber. 
  3. Engine Oil: The oil in your engine plays a vital role as it essentially lubricates the moving parts of the engine so they don’t become damaged and overheat due to friction. If your engine doesn’t have enough oil, or is not replaced on a routine basis then the engine will eventually become damaged.

If you notice any of the above warning signs of engine trouble you should have your vehicle’s engine inspected at the earliest. Issues could include lack of power, a knocking noise, poor fuel economy etc. Bring your vehicle to Smart Mechanics in Harlow today for a thorough diagnostics.
