The engine is the heart of the car, pumping air and fuel through its system. It converts air and fuel into rotary motion to turn the wheels. The air and fuel can become blocked so they cannot do their jobs. The result will be an urgent engine repair. Wise vehicle owners know that regular engine service and keeping up with any necessary minor engine repair will help prevent a major engine rebuild down the road.

Do you know which three components of an engine are most likely to fail? Here is a brief description to help you understand a little more about engine repair:

  1. Valve train: The valve train consists of valves, rocker arms, pushrods, lifters, and camshaft. Its job is to let air and fuel in and out of the engine at the proper time. The timing is controlled by the camshaft, which is synchronized to the crankshaft by a chain or belt.

    What wears out? Leaking valve seals will allow oil to seep into the combustion chamber, collecting there until you start your car, indicated by grayish/white smoke. It will burn away as you drive down the road.

  2. Pistons: Most motors have 4, 6, or 8 pistons which move up and down in the cylinders. The pistons have rings that keep the oil free of fuel and air and prevent it from entering the combustion chamber.

    What wears out? The rings wear out, allowing fuel and air to dilute the oil, reducing its ability to lubricate. Worn out rings also allows oil to enter the combustion chambers, where it burns and emits a grayish/white smoke from the muffler.

  3. Crankshaft: The crankshaft rides on bearings, supporting the crankshaft and rods, and connecting the pistons to the crankshaft. As the pistons move up and down, the crankshaft rotates and converts the straight line motion into rotary motion.

    What wears out? It is inevitable that these bearings will wear down over time, indicated by a loud knocking noise. The crankshaft usually needs to be removed to machine the surface where the bearings ride, or it will needs to be entirely replaced.
