Engine Problems

No one likes problems when it comes to their Rebuilt Auto Engine or even their Diesel Engine - it’s just a hassle. If the engine starts to feel sluggish or if it’s full of things like popping and hissing noises, you might want to get it checked out as soon as you can.

First let’s cover what the car engine does :

Any Rebuilt Car Engine or New Engine in any vehicle is there to convert fuel so that car can run. This whole process is done by something called an internal combustion system. The internal combustion systems have different parts along with the engine parts that are there and connected to the internal combustion system itself. There are two general types of engines that come on cars that are manufactured today : The Diesel Engine and The Gas Turbine Engines.

If you’re like me & you don’t really know how a Rebuilt Car Engine works, and you think that you may be having problems with your engine, take it to a mechanic ASAP. If you’re one of those “do-it” yourself mechanics, there actually are ways that you can diagnose your car engine difficulties :

1. Bad Fuel - I think that some people think that this is some kind of joke, but if your engine experiences some sort of bad fuel mix, this can clog the intake valves. You should check these valves to see if they’re open and free of debris.

2. Lack of Compression - If the air and the fuel isn’t being compressed the right way, the combustion process that’s supposed to start your engine won’t work - at all. They way to fix this is to check your piston rings and see if they appear to be worn at all. You should also inspect your intake and exhaust valves to make sure that they’re sealed completely and properly.

3. No Spark - If your Rebuilt Auto Engine won’t start or spark, one of the causes may be a bad spark plug or a bad spark plug wire. If you see any corrosion whatsoever, you need to replace it. If there’s a wire to the spark plugs that’s either torn or broken, the spark plug wires also have to be replaced - obviously.

4. Engine Cooling System - The cooling system is typically made up of numerous elements that include the pressure cap, radiator, cooling lines, fan, and water pump. All of these components need to be replaced from time to time in order to ensure a good running engine and also to eliminate any possibilities of engine failure.

5. Different Engine Issues - Problems with your engine don’t always have to be as dramatic as the ones that are mentioned above. Sometimes, all you would need is a new battery. Another thing that may be wrong, but not serious would be the bearings that make the crankshaft turn - maybe they’re worn out. If you ever run the engine out of oil (which is something that I suggest you never do), you could burn the engine AND your engine won’t start.

If you really want to figure out the problems with your Rebuilt Car Engine all by yourself, you can make a little field trip to the parts store and buy a generic engine repair manual or visit your local library. You may even be able to diagnose the problems online. The most important thing that you should remember is that you can’t fix the engine if you have no idea how it works. Even if you think something works a certain way, I prefer that you don’t try it.
