How do you know if you need an engine overhaul?

A car’s engine holds all the power necessary to help your car function. It uses fuel and burns it to produce mechanical power.

What is an Engine Overhaul?

An engine overhaul is a brilliant option for engines that aren’t too worn out or too old but are still experiencing issues that need immediate attention. The best thing to do is to get your car to a car garage in Stansted and get a thorough diagnostics and inspection which will determine whether your engine needs an overhaul or not. 

Small parts and components are removed during the process of an engine overhaul. Moreover, the engine is cleaned thoroughly to remove built-up dirt and sludge. There is also a plus side to having your entire engine dismantled, an expert mechanic can very easily  identify any problems and fix it; thereby helping you avoid costly damages in the future. After the thorough cleaning of your engine and once necessary fixes and replacements are done – the engine is assembled back together.

There are a certain warning signs that you need to look out for that’ll help you determine whether your engine needs to be immediately attended to:

  • Knocking Sound
  • Blue or black exhaust smoke
  • Low fuel economy 
  • Reduced Power
