Does Your Vehicle Need Engine Repair?

Your engine is the heart of your vehicle, so it pays to keep it in good condition. Regular maintenance is essential for keeping any engine going strong, especially as its mileage climbs. Something as simple as routine oil changes make a big difference in performance, gas mileage, and longevity–not to mention preventing repairs!

Even with regular maintenance, you might need an engine repair at some point. Auto engine repairs can be extensive, and the longer you let a problem go, the better the chances are of needing a major repair. In some cases, you may need a full engine replacement. This is why it’s always best to bring your vehicle to the shop as soon as you see signs of engine trouble. 

Here are some common signs it’s time to schedule engine repair at our Kent WA shop:

  • The check engine light is on
  • Blue, white, or black smoke coming from the exhaust
  • Knocking, hissing, or popping noises coming from under the hood
  • Metal flakes in the oil
  • Poor gas mileage
  • Loss of power or poor engine performance
  • Stalling
  • A noxious odor coming from the exhaust 
  • The engine is running rough
  • Fluid leaks 
  • Rough idling

If you’ve noticed any of these signs, don’t wait! Schedule an appointment at our repair shop.

Super nice people, Conner was at the front desk as well as another person but I didn’t catch her name. Both were helpful. The shop couldn’t repair my issue due to the manufacturer requiring specific tools. They did a safety inspection and didn’t charge me for it or for the diagnostics since they couldn’t perform the fix!

Is It Better to Repair or Replace an Engine?

We’re often asked whether it’s better to repair or replace an engine. The answer is that it really depends on the diagnosis! Most of the time, a simple repair is all that’s needed to get your engine running well again. For example, you may just need a new water pump or a new cylinder head. 

If your vehicle’s engine needs to be replaced, you have two options. We offer complete replacements and engine rebuilds. Depending on what caused your engine to fail, a rebuild may be the best option. Our skilled technicians have extensive experience rebuilding engines and can have you back on the road in no time. 

An engine rebuild is relatively straightforward. We’ll disassemble your engine, find the damaged parts, and replace them. It’s often much more cost-effective than the cost to replace your engine entirely. Sometimes the replacement parts cost just as much (or close to) the cost of a new engine. In this case, engine replacement is the way to go. 

When you visit us, our technicians will run a full diagnosis and let you know your options. We’ll go over the pros and cons of engine repair versus replacement so you can make the most informed decision.
