Do You Need Your Engine Repaired?
When you start running into engine problems, your first indicator is the dreaded check engine light. Though helpful in notifying you that something is wrong, it doesn’t tell you what exactly it is. Fortunately, we don’t have to rely on the check engine light as there are other signs that can tell you what’s wrong. Wondering what some of those are? Well, the Sinister Autoworks team is here to help you.
White, Blue, or Black Smoke
You’ll typically notice these smokes coming from your exhaust pipe. With white smoke, that indicates your coolant mixture is leaking and mixing with your engine oil. If your coolant is leaking, that usually indicates that there is a cracked cylinder head, blown head gasket, or a cracked engine block. Check your engine oil dipstick for an brown color and slimy consistency, which are clear indicators that your coolant and engine oil have mixed together.
For blue smoke, this typically means that a seal in your engine has broken and your engine oil is burning. Another culprit can be worn piston rings that aren’t sealing properly, so it’s allowing oil to slip into the combustion chamber. Regardless of the problem, send your vehicle to Sinister Autoworks immediately. If not quickly taken care of, you could be looking at a big repair or total replacement, both of which are expensive!
If you see black smoke, that means too much fuel is in the combustion chamber causing an imbalance in the fuel/air ratio. A Sinister Autoworks mechanic will be able to quickly fix the problem and get you back on the road in no time!
If you hear this sound, please bring your car to our shop as soon as possible. Typically, this means that your engine is experiencing a bearing failure. The sound will usually come from the bottom of your engine as that’s where many of the fast-moving parts live. If not promptly fixed you could eventually find yourself paying for an engine replacement, which is costly.
