Think of a vehicle’s engine to be the equivalent of a human heart. It’s the most important part of the car and often the most expensive part to repair or replace. Engine issues are unpredictable and require immediate attention to prevent any permanent damage. Similar to other car parts, preventative maintenance is critical to the engine’s lifespan and can save you from a hefty bill down the road.

Is It Time For Engine Maintenance?

It could be time for engine maintenance if you notice any of the following when driving or starting your vehicle:

  • A noticeable loss in power
  • A decrease in gas mileage
  • The “Check Engine” or “Service Engine” light remains on after starting the car
  • Your engine stalls when at a stop
  • The engine makes a knocking when accelerating

In addition to oil changes and routine engine maintenance, Tommy’ Automotive can handle any other car service maintenance you need, like timing belt replacement, oil changes, and wheel alignment.
