The engine is the heart of the drivetrain in your vehicle and the oil is its blood.
An internal combustion engine is a device that uses a petroleum product (gasoline or diesel) to propel the vehicle into motion.
Engines depend on many independently moving internal components to work perfectly together. There is no way to predict a breakdown before it occurs, but a lack of routine maintenance is the most common cause.
Why Engine Maintenance Is Important
The simplest and most cost-effective way to avoid catastrophic and costly engine repair is to maintain the engine properly and regularly. It is important to follow the manufacturers maintenance schedule and be proactive when it comes to your engine’s service requirements. A well-maintained vehicle rarely breaks down.
Common Engine Failures and Issues:
- Oil leaks
- Coolant leaks
- Ignition issues
- Timing chain stretching
- Timing belt breakage
- Rough running
- Check engine light illumination
- Excess emissions
These malfunctions can occur due to a multitude of reasons, but it is important to address them at the first sign of concern. An ignored issue could cause even more damage to other components of the vehicle.
