Your engine is the heart of your vehicle; proper engine maintenance ensures that your engine doesn’t overheat while on the road, or cut out at an intersection. Keeping an engine properly maintained is environmentally responsible and will insure the safety of you and your passengers..
Your engine is made up of many different components which work together to create and distribute energy throughout your vehicle. At Valencia Auto Performance & Simply Smog, we suggest regular engine maintenance, to prevent future problems, and future money drains on your vehicle.
- Keeping it Clean: Your engine does a lot for your vehicle. In fact, without it, your car wouldn’t be getting very far at all, which is why it’s important to keep your engine clean of debris, dust, and grime. Over time, filters can become blocked; leaves and dirt blow under the hood, and insects find their way into your vehicle. Grease which covers your engine can trap heat, making it difficult for your engine to cool down properly.
- Spark Plug Service: To keep dirt and grime out of the combustion chamber, your spark plug should be periodically cleaned. To do this your mechanic will remove the plug lead, clean the space around it, remove the plug, and use a special cleaner and brush to remove any build up, dirt or dust. This is such a small job, but it can go a big way to improving the overall performance of your engine.
- Proper Lubrication: There are so many moving parts in an engine, that it’s crucial to have proper lubrication always. Otherwise, the friction caused by many of these moving pieces will begin to rub and grind and cause damage. Sometimes, this damage is irreparable, and will result in the need for replacing one or more parts before your engine will function properly again.
- Oil Change: It’s such a simple procedure, and yet so many put it off until it’s too late. An oil change can make all the difference to the performance of your engine, and the overall performance of your vehicle. Over time, your oil can become cloudy, murky, and sticky, and this doesn’t help your engine get the most from its lubrication system. Your oil should be checked and changed once every 6 months of 10,000 miles to ensure that your vehicle is in tip top shape, and your engine is getting the best from the oil it uses. Unsure about whether your oil needs changed? Call Valencia Auto Performance & Simply Smog for an oil check today!
If you notice an issue with your engine, the best thing to do is make an appointment with your mechanic. The longer than an engine problem goes unfixed, the more damage it will begin to cause. What might have been a simple fix could turn into the need to replace many different parts and pieces.
