Car is stalling

If your vehicle is stalling My Auto Shop can get it sorted with an Engine Inspection. Simply leave as many details about the issue as you can and we will contact local MTA approved mechanics that are qualified to fix the underlying issue. We'll email you quotes for an inspection within 2 working days, and where possible provide an indication as to the likely underlying issue(s) and cost to fix. You can book directly on the My Auto Shop platform in minutes.

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.

When your vehicle is stalling its often as a result of a:

  • Blocked Fuel Filter
  • Broken Fuel Pump
  • Vacuum Leaks
  • Sensors are broken and triggering a stall

Popular services linked to a Engine Inspection:

Mass Airflow Sensor Replacement

The mass airflow sensor checks the amount of airflow that’s coming into the engine. It then sends this information to the ECU which will use this info to adjust the fuel mixture that is injected via the fuel injectors.

Fuel Injector Replacement

In order to get the right amount of fuel into your engine, your engine computer uses fuel injectors. These injectors are used to spray the exact right amount of fuel into the combustion chamber. They give the engine way more ability to be economical and efficient than old carburettors did.

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.

Catalytic Converter Removal & Replacement

While your engine is running it pumps out plenty of harmful exhaust fumes. To minimise this, car makers introduced catalytic converters to reduce the amount of CO2 and nasty pollutants entering the atmosphere.
