How Do you Know if your Vehicle's Engine Has a Problem?

Your vehicle's engine is the heart of your vehicle - without it, your vehicle wouldn't be able to generate the power it needs to move. This is why keeping the engine in good condition is vital overall when it comes to your vehicle's overall operation and performance. Good engine maintenance will ensure that you avoid major issues and will keep your vehicle running longer and better. 

If there is a problem with your engine, how can you tell? Typically, there are certain symptoms that will indicate that you have an engine problem. Here are some of the signs to look out: 

  • Your check engine light has turned on
  • Engine block is cracked
  • Damaged pistons or rings
  • Decreased fuel efficiency
  • Hard startup
  • Car won't start
  • Engine runs rough
  • Rough idling

As soon as you notice any of the issues listed above, we recommend bringing your vehicle into Premier Automotive Service for an inspection. If you ignore the issue, the problem could quickly progress, making the engine issue even worse and eventually costing you even more money on repairs.
