About Your Engine

It is generally pretty easy to tell when your engine needs work, but often by the time it tells you what the problem is, it is too late for a quick fix. The most effective way to prevent prolonged damage to is to always take your automobile to a repair shop for a diagnostics test the moment your “check engine” light turns on. This will assure that, no matter the scale of the problem, you can at least be aware of what’s going on with your vehicle. In addition, our engine rebuilders give a free diagnostics test with every repair to assure the highest standard of service in the San Antonio area.

What To Look For

There are quite a few indications of engine problems, but the most common is smoke. Engine smoke comes in various colors, and each color can help clue you into what the problem is:

  • White smoke is usually caused by coolant and water flooding the combustion chamber, and typically indicates a damaged cylinder head or blown gasket.
  • Blue smoke is indicative of burning oil, which could be caused by breakage in one of many places in the engine.
  • Black smoke indicates that your engine is not getting the correct fuel to oxygen ratio in the combustion chamber, the cure for which could be as easy as cleaning the fuel injectors, or as difficult as a complete engine overhaul.

In addition, if you notice a significant decrease in performance and stability of your vehicle, or crunching and grinding noises coming from the engine, you may be in need of an overhaul or a complete engine rebuild.
