Troubleshooting Engine Problems By Sound

My Engine Sounds Like …

There is a lot that can be learned by listening to your engine. Is it telling you something important or is it just rambling on with nothing to say? If your car starts to change its tune, you should give it a listen. Nobody knows your engine better than you do. If it starts to sound odd, or even a little different, there could be a problem. If you catch these types of problems early enough you can avoid a lot of time at the repair shop later, not to mention the money!

Engine using oil and there is smoke in your exhaust


Smoke in Exhaust

Engine using oil and there is smoke in your exhaust

Symptom: Engine uses more oil than normal, and there is some smoke from the exhaust. The oil level is low between oil changes. It appears that the oil is being burned by the engine because of the smoke in the exhaust. You may or may not notice the engine doesn’t have the same power as it used to.

Possible causes:

1. The PCV system is not working properly.

The Fix: Replace PCV valve.

2. The engine may have mechanical problems.

The Fix: Check compression to determine engine condition.

3. The engine’s piston rings may be worn.

The Fix: Replace piston rings. (Generally not a DIY job)

Do You Need a Compression Test?


Do You Need a Compression Test?

Your car’s engine compression can tell you a lot about the overall health of the engine. If your car is blowing blue smoke out of the tailpipe, or if your car is losing lots of oil, you could have a bad piston ring. This will also cause low compression in that cylinder, and a compression test will tell you. The same goes for a bad valve. Even if you are just noticing a general lack of power, a compression test can help you rule out some of the more serious possible causes.

“Thank you so much for all that Ellesmere Port Engine Centre did for me. When I came in for my brake job, I had no ideal that I had been risking the life of not only myself, but of my son also. I am so grateful for all the hard work, effort, and caring that went into fixing my truck for me, as well as for all the care and understanding I got from everyone that pulled together to get the job done in time for me to make it back to work. I don’t think I can every repay you for all you have done. You guys really went the extra mile, and have proven to me that there ARE good people out there. Now I tell anyone that will listen how wonderful Ellesmere Port Engine Centre are. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
