Engine Repair in Kissimmee, FL
Engine Repair in Kissimmee, FL How does an engine work? Acura, Audi, BMW, and Buick may have different types of engines inside them, but they all work similarly. Simply put, an internal combustion engine (the engine found in gas-powered vehicles) is an engine that converts energy from the heat and explosion of burning gasoline to mechanical movements or torque. Simply put, the torque is transmitted from the engine to the transmission, and driveshaft, and then to the wheels, which make your car move (of course the detailed process is much more complex). Engines have pistons that move up and down metal cylinders. Pistons are connected to a crankshaft via rods and move up and down to power the crankshaft, which generates the power, that then powers the wheels of your car via the transmission and driveshaft. Most cars, trucks, and SUVs have between 4 to 8 cylinders, although some outliers have as few as 2, and as many as 18. An engine's pistons are powered by thousands of controlled explosions created by mixing fuel with oxygen and igniting the mixture with the sparkplug. The heat and expanding gases from these mini-explosions push down on the piston in the cylinder, causing movement. Engines need oxygen to burn fuel. During the intake stroke, valves open to allow the piston to act like a syringe as it moves downward, drawing in ambient air through the engine's intake system. When the piston reaches the bottom of its stroke, the intake valves close, effectively sealing the cylinder for the compression stroke, which is in the opposite direction as the intake stroke. The upward movement of the piston compresses the intake charge. We at RepairTech Automotive and DIY in Kissimmee know all about how engines work and can make the appropriate repairs as efficiently as possible. How do I know if my engine needs repairs? A vehicle’s engine is an intricate machine that is fundamental to getting you from one destination to another. Because of this, you should not ignore any issues with your engine. It is always a good idea to bring in your vehicle for smaller engine fixes rather than wait for a larger problem to occur that could cause severe damage to your car and cost you a lot more. If you are concerned about the health of your engine, you can bring your vehicle to RepairTech Automotive and DIY in Kissimmee. We specialize in Diagnostics and Repair, Maintenance Service and Repair, as well as engine repair. We can determine if the problem lies in your engine head gasket, exhaust system, catalytic converter, or something else. Here are some of our tips for preventative maintenance to keep your engine running smoothly and avoid major problems:  Change your oil regularly and use the manufacturer's recommended motor oil. Change your timing belt at your manufacturers' recommended interval. Give your engine time to warm up before driving if possible, especially when the weather is cold. This will let the oil get into all parts of the engine, and provides lubrication before putting a large load on the engine. Some warning signs of a faulty engine include: Your vehicle’s “Check Engine” light is on - This light turning on could mean the oxygen sensor needs replacing, the catalytic converter is damaged, the fuel cap is loose, or something else. Whatever the reason is, a "Check Engine" light should not be ignored. The engine does not start when you turn your key in the ignition - Which usually indicates a problem with the way your engine processes fuel. Your vehicle could be consuming more fuel than usual (you are getting fewer miles per gallon). You may feel shaking and/or hear strange noises coming from underneath your vehicle’s hood.
