Engine Maintenance, Repair and Engine Replacement Services in Kalispell, MT
If your engine isn’t working properly, chances are you’re in for a costly repair. An engine replacement can set you thousands behind. With preventative maintenance, you can keep your car’s engine running smoothly. Your engine is a complex arrangement of electrical systems, complicated mechanical systems, belts, chains and seals, and they all operate under high temperatures to keep you going down the road.
Preventative maintenance is the first step to maintain a resilient engine. When we think of engine failure, timing belts and timing chains are generally what come to mind. Depending on the make of your car, these should be checked every 60,000 miles and again at 100,000 miles.
Another sign of engine problems are oil leaks. Oil leaks indicate the need to service your car and can be the result of poor maintenance. When the oil leaks from your engine, the seals are deprived of lubrication and they become dry and brittle. This can lead to fluid loss, and if left unserviced, to catastrophic engine failures.
Being attentive about fluid flushes, fuel injection cleanings and routine maintenance are all keys to keeping your car’s engine a happy engine. Like a yearly checkup, your car needs a regular tune-up. Depending on the make and model of your car, the services included in a tune up can differ. For the most part, however, a tune up includes spark plug replacement, spark plug wire inspection, setting the timing belt or timing chain, diagnostic inspection of engine parts and the replacement of air and fuel filters.
