For many drivers in Dallas, Texas, engine repair can be one of the most frustrating and worrisome thoughts that can be brought up.
At Coit Auto Center we feel that the vast amount of stress associated with engine maintenance is due to a misunderstanding of what needs to be done when an engine issue surfaces.
Many drivers are of the mind that once they are experiencing engine problems, their car is quickly going to become useless. This is only true if you allow the problem to go unattended. Quick action can resolve an engine problem before a major engine breakdown occurs.
Your engine is a finely tuned piece of machinery that relies on its other components to operate in good timing. If this is not the case, the degradation of your engine can be surprisingly quick. At Coit Auto Center, we recommend regular tune up visits and inspections to keep your engine healthy. Preventative maintenance for your engine can extend the life of your vehicle. The truth about an engine is that 120,000 miles is really just the beginning of an engine’s life. At this mile marker, everything has settled in, and if taken care of, will easily serve you for another 100,000 miles.
One of the best tools available to the driver for keeping their vehicle well maintained is the check engine light. Although it’s true that the check engine light can become active for a variety of reasons, it is important to note that there is one thing to look out for specifically. If your check engine light is flashing, you need to stop in for maintenance as soon as possible. However, if the light is solid, you have some time to wait for a convenient moment.
