Common Symptoms of Engine Problems

Your engine light on your dashboard is an early indicator of a potential engine problem. It’s best to get a diagnostic test from Gresham Auto Care as soon as the light comes on, even if you don’t have any obvious engine symptoms. Bring your vehicle to Gresham Auto Care as soon as possible if you’re experiencing any of the following:

  • Engine runs rough while idling
  • Engine pings or knocks, and the sound gets worse on acceleration
  • Engine makes clicking, rattling or hammering noises
  • Vehicle uses a lot more gas than it used to
  • Vehicle doesn’t accelerate normally
  • Dark exhaust smoke or exhaust is “spitting”
  • Uses excessive water or oil

What’s Making That Sound?

Unusual sounds from the engine can be caused by any number of issues, from simple to complex, including:

  • Loose, worn or broken engine parts
  • Fuel or oil has gotten into the air charge of the cylinders
  • Malfunctioning valves or timing parts

If you feel something’s not quite right with your engine, but you’re not sure how to explain it, give Gresham Auto Care a call (919) 431-8930 or (919)-431-8931 or schedule your vehicle drop. Our ASE certified technicians will ask you some questions and when you bring it in, give it a test drive to help us diagnose any issues.
