Engine Mechanical Service - Gasoline or Diesel
Any car part manufacturer will tell you that preventive maintenance is critical to the part's lifespan. Like other auto parts, engines aren't built to last forever. The easiest and most effective way to maintain peak performance and fuel economy from your vehicle is to perform regular engine maintenance before any more serious problems can arise.
Engine Repair and Rebuild
After years of use, your car's engine inevitably deteriorates. If you car needs a new engine and you are not ready to invest in a new car, consider having the engine rebuilt. This involves replacing or resurfacing all the rundown parts in an engine. From a diagnostic check engine light repair to a precision engine part repair, our expert technicians are ready to help you.
A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car's engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head's main function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in low power, engine misfires and making the car difficult to drive.
A timing belt is a part of your car's internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at precisely the correct time. Also, the timing belt (or chain) prevents the piston from striking the valves in what is called, an 'interference engine'. A timing belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside service, while a timing chain set is a metal roller chain with sprockets. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and sprockets. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car's timing belt checked regularly.
An engine block is the powerhouse for the vehicle. The solid cast iron or cast aluminum block houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the engine block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is still susceptible to wear and failure resulting in a vehicle that won't start or run properly. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failures are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks.
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is made of steel (or stainless steel) piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better - for you, your car, and the environment.
