It Won't Start
An engine that will not crank is one of the most common engine problems. Frequently this issue does not require an engine repair, but a repair to another system in your vehicle. If you hear a clicking sound, but the engine does not turn over, then it's likely a problem with the battery. If you hear the engine crank, but it won't start, you're likely experiencing a problem with your ignition or fuel system.
Don't let your vehicle run hot! Left untreated, a hot engine can lead to serious engine damage and an expensive repair bill. If you've been maintaining your vehicle's coolant and you're experiencing a hot engine, then our technicians will look for common problems with the engine thermostat, radiator, leaks or obstructions in hoses, or even blown gaskets.
If you just had your vehicle serviced, you may see steam, smoke or detect a burning smell. This is common and happens when fluids drip or spill in the engine compartment during servicing. This condition is temporary, lasting no more than a day or two. Real smoking engine problems can be caused by using an incorrect grade of oil, and worn gaskets, cylinders and rings.
Squeaks and knocks
Pay attention to those squeaks and knocking sounds. These sounds can tip you off to worn out belts, a starter that needs to be replaced, and other non-engine issues like worn out brake pads and tire problems.
