Engine

Looking after the heart of your car is vital to the performance of your car. How to recognise an engine fault? Here are a couple of common symptoms:

  • Large consumption of engine oil, or its loss may indicate a malfunction of the valve seals, turbocharger or its general worn out
  • Smoke from the exhaust pipe (sometimes very intense):
    • If the smoke from the exhaust pipe is extremely intense, takes on a darker colour and is accompanied by fluctuations in the engine running, it may indicate damage to the turbine.
    • Black, sooty smoke may be caused by a faulty injector, wrongly adjusted carburettor, polluted air filter or poor quality fuel.
    • Extraction of the blue smoke most likely indicates that the engine burns oil.
    • White smoke often means burning coolant, which can get through to the engine only in the event of a major failure – leaking head gasket, cracked head or cylinder wall
  • Engine Oil Pressure Warning Light On

You might also experience some of the following issues:

  • Engine leak may result from engine being worn out.
  • Problems with starting the engine -worn out insulated high voltage cables, high pollution engine failure of the ignition coil, spark or fuel injection system. If the speed of change also idle, it may be the result of damage to the stepper motor, rarely comes to a clogged air filter, crash sensors lambda sensor or faulty injection system.
  • Grinding or squeaking in the engine – it is important to remember the kind of noise and notice at which moment the noise appears to help us identify the problem quicker.
  • ‘Check engine’ light may be on for a number of different reasons. You may need to change of the following parts:
    • Catalytic converter, oxygen sensor, spar plugs, mass airflow sensor
    • Your gas cap which may be damaged or missing
