Engine Repair You Can Count On

Without your car engine, you aren’t going anywhere fast. That’s why it’s vital to have regular engine maintenance and proper care. Without a qualified service center like Mickey’s Auto Repair by your side, you face sitting on the side of the road waiting for engine repair. 

Shaking or Noises

If your car generally runs smoothly but then all of a sudden begins to shake or make noise from under the hood, you might have an engine problem. Clicking, whining, squealing and grinding are never sounds you want to hear while driving. We will give your engine a full check and ensure you don’t need something simple such as belt replacement. 

Poor Gas Mileage

One of the tell-tale signs that something is wrong with your car engine is poor gas mileage. Keep an eye on how many miles per gallon you get so you can receive early warning of trouble. If your fuel consumption begins to change, it might be a sign that something isn’t right. Getting it checked out early and having cooling system repair work performed, saves you from having extensive radiator repair and replacement later on.

Stalling and Rough Idle

Have you ever had your car stall on the road? There’s nothing more embarrassing than that. While it’s not unheard of for a manual transmission car to stall, your automatic shouldn’t. If you begin to have trouble, you’ll want to get your car to Mickey’s Auto Repair immediately before the car leaves you stranded.  

It could be an issue with your fuel pump, fuel sensor or just an electrical system concern. It might also mean you are running low on gas, your car needs a tune up or one of the engine components is worn out. Either way, it needs a full engine diagnostics to determine if it’s something simple such as a spark plug or you require fuel injection repair and service. 

Check Engine Light

If that check engine light comes on, it is time to seek help from the trained technicians at Mickey’s Auto Repair. We will run diagnostics and get to the root of the engine problem quickly. Whether you simply need a hose replacement or fuel system repair and maintenance, you can count on us to get you back on the road with peace of mind.
