Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance especially before that Check Engine Light comes on. Engine maintenance impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine.
So, how can one tell if the vehicle needs engine maintenance?
Here are some of the engine maintenance services Nile Automotive Services offers.
1- Fuel Injection inspection
Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. The definition of fuel injection is a system for inserting or puffing fuel into an engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call (210)-826-0037 or visit Nile Automotive Services today.
An ignition system is an igniting mechanism (using an electric spark), mixture of fuel, and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high car performance. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Nile Automotive Services today.
3- Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables aka, spark plug wires, are important for your car's ignition system. Ignition cables transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air, which starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down and results in the engine misfiring, then the car eventually fails to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Nile Automotive Services. Your car cables will be replaced by a one of our mechanic.
4- Spark Plugs
Spark plugs deliver electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Nile Automotive Services, we will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call (210)-826-0037 or visit Nile Automotive Services.
5- Oil, Lube, and Filter
If you want your car running smoothly, your car oil change, lube, and oil filters are vital. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Nile Automotive Services.
6- Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light comes on. That could mean a costly problem. Check Engine Light could mean bad catalytic converter, or something minor, such a loose gas cap. At Nile Automotive Services we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you.. DON'T WAIT!! for a blinking Engine Light.
