Ultimate Automotive Service Tech Question on Engine FailureDec 17th, 2016
Ultimate Automotive Service Tech Question:
I'm Collins of Urbandale. I had my engine go out and had to have it completely re-done at Ultimate Automotive Service in Urbandale. What could I have done to prevent this?
Ultimate Automotive Service Tech Answer:
You've got to feel for Collins: an expensive major engine rebuild is pretty extreme. It's a tough situation to be in: maybe you're still making payments on your vehicle and nobody wants to buy it with a blown engine, so you really have no choice but to pay the money to get it fixed.
This is why your manufacturer and Ultimate Automotive Service have preventive maintenance schedules to help you avoid major repairs. Suppose you don't change your timing belt on schedule and it breaks. That can mean bent valves and a damaged cylinder head.
Maybe you've skipped over the Ultimate Automotive Service recommendation to replace your coolant and end up with catastrophic overheating.
It could be you've skipped a few too many oil changes and now sludge has built up in your vehicle to the point that expensive parts in your engine are being damaged.
Check your vehicle oil level every month and follow your recommended service schedules. And if you're behind on any services, ask your friendly and knowledgeable pro at Ultimate Automotive Service to help you work out a plan to get caught up.
