What San Diego Engine Repair Services Do We Offer?

Experiencing engine problems in Mission Bay or Pacific Beach can be difficult. What our team can do is locate the exact causes of your vehicle’s engine problems and make the needed repairs or replacements. When it comes to our engine repair services, we offer a wide range of them:

  • Engine Diagnosis: A check engine light can come on for a number of reasons, all of which we can explore with our specialized equipment. Once we diagnose your engine troubles by pinpointing the issues, we can then list the repairs your engine needs to function properly again. We provide a list of free cost estimates to help you decide.
  • Tune-Ups: Annual tune-ups can help you avoid potential engine problems in the future by double-checking faulty parts and minor issues that could build up to serious malfunctions. During our standard tune-up, our ASE certified mechanics will assess your engine for any worn or dysfunctional parts. We can then make replacements as necessary for worn out parts. We can also modify idle or timing settings.
  • Filter Replacements: Dirty or damaged air and fuel filters can also cause engine malfunctions. Our team will look for any faulty filters and will replace them with new filters with an extended warranty.
  • Fuel System Cleaning Services: Clogged fuel system lines and injectors can result in serious problems for your vehicle’s engine. Our team works with a three-step cleaning process to eradicate all the built-up soot in your fuel system. Not taking care of this could also lead to poor gas mileage.

There are several signs you can look out for when it comes to an engine that is going out or has problems that could lead to engine failure. Recognizing some of these common signs can help you know when it is time to visit our repair shop in Mission Bay or Pacific Beach.

Air and fuel filters are the first things you can keep an eye on. Faulty air and fuel filters will present with the following signs:

  • Difficulty starting your engine
  • Unexplainable engine noises
  • Bad gas mileage
  • Odd car movements while driving

Poor air filters will also cause black smoke to exit your vehicle’s exhaust pipe. The fuel system is what keeps your engine running smoothly. This is why a clogged or damaged fuel system will reveal itself with the following symptoms:

  • Poor gas mileage
  • Delays during acceleration
  • Less overall vehicle power

One of the more important things to keep in check is standard tune-ups for your engine. The following signs will let you know when it is time to have your engine undergo a tune-up:

  • Various dashboard lights indicate problems
  • Delayed acceleration
  • Odd noises coming from your car during starting or driving
  • A shaking engine

Our Engine-Checking Process in Pacific Beach and Mission Bay

Once all of these engine components are checked, we can make a list of which components need repairs and which components need replacements. We can bring this list to you with a written cost estimate of each repair and replacement service. This can be used to help you decide on what repairs are the most important.

If you have any questions, we can tell you the potential consequences of not seeking certain repairs as well as the benefits of having the repairs made. We believe in proving you with the information you need to make the best decision for yourself and your car.
