Symptoms of Car Engine Malfunctions
Problems with the engine can manifest with characteristic symptoms that should not be underestimated. In case any of the following symptoms occur, it is necessary to entrust the vehicle to CGS MOTORS mechanics:
Significant oil loss.
Smoke from the exhaust pipe. Blue smoke, combined with oil loss, indicates engine problems, while black smoke may be caused by, among other things, a malfunctioning injector, a contaminated air filter, or a worn-out turbine.
Oil leaks may indicate worn and loosened pipes and gaskets, a cracked oil pan, or significant engine wear. Oil leaks pose a danger to the engine and should not be ignored.
Oil traces on the air filter suggest a blown head gasket or blow-by from the combustion chambers, resulting from worn piston rings.
The engine check engine light illuminating, often ignored by drivers. This light can signal minor malfunctions, but also serious engine failures that can lead to the destruction of the power unit.
Knocking sounds from the engine may indicate problems with the timing or engine crankshaft bearings. In the worst case, an engine overhaul will be necessary. In the face of such symptoms, it is advisable to promptly visit an automotive workshop.
Other symptoms indicating engine problems include, among others:
• Thick sludge visible under the oil filler cap,
• Changes in idle speed,
• Uneven engine operation,
• Starting problems with the power unit.
