How a Engine Inspection works with My Auto Shop:

Our qualified mechanic will look to complete a thorough inspection of your vehicle's engine using the information or symptoms you have provided via the My Auto Shop platform. To complete this the mechanic will usually start by plugging into your OBDII port and completing a complete diagnostic scan. This will highlight any error or warning codes your vehicle has and will provide the mechanic with information they. need to fix your problem.

Depending on the symptoms the mechanic will take a good look at your vehicles:
- Drive & timing belts (cambelt, serpentine belts);
- Camshaft & crankshaft;
- Spark plugs; or
- Oil pan.

Before completing any repairs the mechanic will complete a quote and look for your approval.

Popular services linked to a Engine Inspection:

Oil Pump Replacement

The oil pump has perhaps the most important role of any engine component. It is responsible for circulating the lubrication and cooling that the engine needs to function at its ideal temperature and speed. Aside from preserving the engine it is also important in the function of the engine. A faulty oil pump will seriously hinder the performance of the engine.

Oil Cooler Replacement

Your engine oil has one of the most important jobs in your car - it keeps your motor lubricated and running as it should. Much everything else mechanical in your car, it has a perfect operating temperature. One of the little thought about things with oil, is that it not only lubricates everything, but also cools key internal components.

Cooling Fan Replacement

In order to keep your car's engine cool, calm and collected, your cooling system uses a cooling fan to move air through the radiator and cool the coolant. Over time the fan can become damaged or can just wear out. It’s a really important part of the cooling system so if there’s a problem then it needs to be solved as soon as possible.

Radiator Bottom Hose Replacement

In order to send your cooled coolant from the radiator to the engine, it has to travel through the radiator bottom hose. This hose is prone to wearing out over time, this is due to the constant pressure and heat cycles. You don’t want coolant going on the ground instead of the engine, so get the bottom hose fixed as soon as possible.
