The Engine & Transmission is the beating heart of your vehicle, so regular and high-quality maintenance is imperative for the safety and longevity of your car or truck. At Keegan Auto we can assist with many of your Engine & Transmission needs from engine tuneups to engine and transmission replacements.
SIGNS THAT YOUR ENGINE NEEDS SERVING INCLUDE:
THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TURNS ON
Many drivers live in fear of that little Check Engine Light popping up on your dashboard. We’re here to calm your fears — most of the time that light is not an indication of an engine emergency. However, we highly recommend stopping by our shop as soon as possible. Our technicians can run computer diagnostics to pinpoint the cause of the Check Engine Light and determine whether your vehicle needs servicing.
A continuous knocking sound could indicate that your engine is low on oil, an issue that is easily remedied. However, it could also be indicative of a larger issue that needs to be addressed quickly, such as the bottom end of your engine needing to be rebuilt.
Vibrations can be another symptom of low oil.
DECREASED GAS MILEAGE
Worsening gas mileage can sometimes be the result of an issue with your engine’s compression stroke.
LOSS OF POWER
If your vehicle experiences a sudden or extreme loss of power, contact our shop as quickly as possible for diagnostics and servicing.
INCREASED EXHAUST SMOKE
Did you know the color of the smoke your vehicle emits is like a secret code for engine problems? Black smoke indicates that your car or truck is burning too much gasoline, while white smoke often means there’s a coolant leak. And bluish smoke is a sign that you’re experiencing an oil leak. All of these issues require quick and high-quality repairs.
Possible transmission issues include slipping, grinding or jumping during shifting.
We always remind clients that regular vehicle maintenance goes a long way towards decreasing the odds of engine trouble arising, so don’t forget to schedule your vehicle check-ups!
