Engine Tune-ups

Common Signs of needing an engine tune-up are:

Loss of power

Your vehicle’s engine performance can be affected by a number of factors including lack of gasoline, a dirty air filter, or bad spark plugs to name a few. This can cause your car to jerk or hesitate, making it difficult to climb hills and push to its fullest speed performance potential.

If you’re a do-it-yourselfer, try changing your air filter and replacing old spark plugs to add a little more kick to your engine. Spark plugs help ignite the explosive mixture needed to fuel your car’s engine. As they burn out your engine’s loses power.

 

Engine Knocking

Carbon deposits in your engine can also weigh down your vehicle’s performance. These deposits are often the cause of that pesky knocking or pinging noise you hear. The fuel you put into your vehicle is required to have a certain level of carbon cleaning detergent to stop deposits from forming, but sometimes that’s not enough. This becomes a problem because it reduces the amount of space you have in your gas cylinder, which increases compression causing your car to knock.

If this is a problem you cannot solve on your own, bring your car to your nearest Midlands Auto Tune-up location in Bellevue or Papillion

 

Engine Stalling

Exhaust Odor

If your car emits an unusual odor while you’re idling, then it could be your serpentine belt has burned out or rusted. To add more life to your engine and its cooling system, get your oil changed regularly to prevent your belt from getting loose or snapping causing your car to overheat. A broken belt can prevent your air alternator and power steering from working effectively, bringing your engine to a complete stop. Check your serpentine belt for cracks and debris regularly, and change your belt as recommended by your car’s manufacturer.

 

Check Engine Light

Your check engine light engages for a number of reasons including faulty oxygen sensors, cylinder misfires, an insufficient EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) flows, or a lose gas cap.
