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 Coolant Brown and Foamy


Engine Coolant Brown and Foamy

Your coolant is brown in color and foamy

Symptom: Engine is using more oil than normal. Coolant appears brownish and foamy. Your car seems to be losing oil someplace, but there aren’t any obvious leaks, and no smoke from the exhaust. You check your coolant and it looks like foamy root beer

Possible Causes:

1. Blown head gasket.

The Fix: Replace head gasket.

2. Cracked cylinder head.

The Fix: Remove and repair head, or replace cylinder head with new part.

3. Leaking oil-to-water cooler.

The Fix: Repair or replace oil cooler.

Engine Oil Consumption


Troubleshooting Engine Oil Consumption

Is your oil level low between oil changes? If your car’s engine is operating as it should, there will be no need to add oil. Unfortunately older engines rarely enjoy this luxury. As the engine wears, oil makes its escape. A little oil added now and then is nothing to worry about, but if you’re adding a quart or more between oil changes, you may have a fixable problem in there. Your engine may be burning oil thanks to worn piston rings. Your engine could also be leaking oil thanks to a bad gasket or cracked part. Or you could be losing oil through the head gasket into the cooling system. This can be an expensive repair.

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.

Stranded in Chester


I was driving to Chester from Birkenhead when my car started to act up. Since we were arriving in Chester at 5PM on a Tuesday we thought for sure we wouldn’t find anyone who would be willing to look at, diagnose then fix our car by the time we had to leave the next day.

 

Ellesmere Port Engine Centre lived up to their name and really helped us out! We called at 5PM and they agreed to come and pick up the car. They promised to look at it first thing the next morning since they knew we had to get back to Birkenhead. One of the mechanics even gave my husband a ride back to our hotel out of kindness.

 

Ellesmere Port Engine Centre stayed true to their word and had our car fixed by noon the next day. They really saved the day and kept us from being stranded in Chester! I would recommend them to anyone. They were absolutely wonderful- oh, and the car is doing great now!”
