Engine repairs near me in Newcastle

When the question of engine failure comes up, most motorists immediately cringe because damage to the engine of a car is almost always associated with high repair costs. But this does not have to be the case, because engine damage is not the same as total write-off. But what is engine failure? In principle, the expert always speaks of engine failure when the engine can no longer drive the vehicle. The causes and possible consequences of engine damage are decisive for the repair and the associated effort, and ultimately also for the costs.

Engine damage rarely occurs in a car all of a sudden. Often there are clear symptoms in advance that make a problem with the engine of your vehicle noticeable. It is important to recognize these first signs. For example, the performance of the engine can decrease - especially with heavy loads or on inclines. Occasional misfires or misfires can also be signs of the beginning of engine damage. Acoustically, engine failure in a car can be indicated by symptoms such as unusual noises in the engine compartment. There are also some gauges and lights installed in the instrument panel to alert you to engine problems.

The main causes of engine damage on a car are poor maintenance and high wear and tear. Our workshops find technical defects in the engine or individual parts less frequently. Operating and operational errors are relatively rare as the trigger. And the engine is not spared even in a car accident. The various causes cause different damage patterns in or on the engine. For example, a worn V-belt on a vehicle can easily be replaced, while defective valves require a little more effort in the workshop. With a little luck, the engine damage can be eliminated by changing individual components. If, on the other hand, other assemblies are affected, such as the alternator, the water pump, or the engine housing is damaged, the repair of the engine damage can be very complex and expensive.

When is it still possible to repair the engine damage?

For some cars with engine damage, a regular repair can help - provided that other parts or assemblies of the vehicle have not already been damaged by the defect. The most common problem is the engine oil or the oil consumption. Too little, too much, too old or bad engine oil are examples of this. With a little luck, engine damage, if the valve control is out of step, can still be repaired. The timing belt or timing chain is often skipped or torn here. A visible loss of operating materials on the engine can also be repaired. A leaking cylinder head gasket can cause engine oil and cooling water to mix or leak. Engine damage due to decreasing compression is often due to a defective cylinder head gasket or broken glow or spark plugs as well as a defective injection valve. Such engine damage is often noticeable as a result of a jerking engine, misfires or declining engine performance of the car. If the workshop detects overheating damage during the engine check, the engine radiator or the cooling water pump is defective. Faults in the control unit or in the on-board electronics are rarely caused by overheating and engine damage. An uneven engine run is often due to fuel in the cylinders. Here, the defective injection pump is usually the cause of the engine damage. It can be exchanged, but in such cases further defective components can be expected. Repair is often still possible with these problems:

  • Problems with engine oil
  • Valve control is out of step
  • Loss of operating fluids on the engine
  • Decreasing compression
  • Overheating of the engine
  • Fuel in the cylinders
