Regular Maintenance Can Help Save on Denver Auto Repair


April 5, 2017

Every day you’re in and out of your automobile numerous times, starting, stopping, cranking the engine and turning it off when you’ve reached your destination. Rarely does one stop to consider the wear and tear taking place under the hood as a result of running around for everyday travel while getting everyone in the right place and errands accomplished.

Drop of Billy at school, go to work, leave for lunch, run by the bank, pick up Billy and take him to soccer practice, get to the grocery store, get gas, pick up Billy, get home. Just another day without any issue until one day the check engine light illuminates on your dashboard, or your car fails to crank and panic ensues.

No time for an auto appointment leads to increased wear on the vehicle driving under duress until eventually a repair shop visit is mandatory. Routine maintenance can help alleviate the need for a hefty price tag on a repair when it’s too late. Following a routine maintenance schedule with timely oil and filter changes and regular engine checks can lengthen the life of an automobile tremendously. Ensure the following parts are running efficiently and correctly in your vehicle’s engine.

Spark Plug

Spark plugs ensure your vehicle starts properly by delivering electricity from the ignition system to the combustion chamber of the engine. The plug is grounded into the engine’s cylinder head making sure it works.Typically a four-cylinder engine will contain four spark plugs whereas a six-cylinder engine houses six. If your vehicle is idling roughly or has trouble starting it can be a sign that the spark plugs need to be replaced. Instead of ignoring the issue an owner should seek help immediately. To educate yourself on the matter, learn more about how spark plugs work.

Fuel Injector

The fuel injector is just that, a small device that introduces fuel into the engine. Vehicle power output, fuel efficiency, and emissions are correlated to the injector.

Similarly, if the automobile takes unusually long to crank or has trouble starting with a full tank of gas the fuel injector could be an issue. Individuals who neglect to service their vehicles with regular oil and filter changes can also experience problems with their fuel injector.
 

Catalytic Converter

Replacement of the catalytic converter on a vehicle can prove extremely costly. However, the part rarely needs replacing with conventional upkeep and is often the result of ignoring needs in other areas. The emissions control device is an integral part of the vehicle’s exhaust system.

By ensuring the quality upkeep of other engine parts a car owner can help to avoid a costly repair as the result of long-term negligence.
