Today's car engines continue to evolve into a more reliable and less troublesome machine that before, but that does not negate the need for routine engine service. The importance of an inspection and routine maintenance cannot be stressed enough. Ignoring this important service will lead to certain mechanical failure and maybe even the need for a complete engine rebuild.

Without question, the most critical service to be performed on any car engine is the routine check and replacement of the motor oil. Allowing the level to fall too low can lead to catastrophic failure of a car’s engine. Even operating below the normal level has negative implications. Replacing the motor oil, as prescribed by the manufacture, helps to prevent buildup of harmful deposits which can cause the engine to have to work harder and critical parts to wear faster.

Checking to ensure that the correct oil level is maintained is a simple task that can be performed by the car owner, as well as topping it off as needed. However, there are several advantages in allowing a trained professional perform your vehicle's routine fluid replacement. When performing their service, a technician has a check list of other important maintenance items that could be overlooked by the average vehicle owner. The eye of a trained professional is more likely to spot a problem in the making.

Another critical engine service that can help prevent the need for a major engine rebuild is the inspection of the timing belt. Most engines these days are built with what is referred to as an interference fit, meaning that if everything is not moving in harmony, internal parts will collide, and resulting in major engine damage. It is best to allow a trained professional to inspect not just the engine timing belt, but all the vehicle's belts on a regular basis.

Wondering if it's time for a routine engine service for your vehicle? Contact our ASE-certified technicians today at Express Care Auto for more information and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop serves vehicle owners in Mankato, MN, and the neighboring communities of Mankato, MN, New Ulm, MN, and St. Peter, MN.
