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 engine is sputtering its often as a result of a:

  • Leak in Exhaust Manifold
  • Worn Seals or Gaskets
  • Failing Catalytic Converter
  • Malfunctioning Oxygen Sensors
  • Dirty Fuel Injectors
  • Bad or Dirty Spark Plugs
  • Dirty Mass Airflow Sensor
  • Vacuum Leak

Popular services linked to a Engine Inspection:

Coolant Level Sensor Replacement

If you aren’t super mechanically minded, you probably don’t check your coolant that often. Lucky for you, your coolant level sensor does that for you. If it fails, you won’t be reminded to top off your coolant. If you forget to do that, you can overheat your engine and that can lead to a bunch of issues down the track.

Air Intake Replacement

In order to get air into your engine it first passes through an air filter which is connected to the intake plenum. The air intake is the system from which air gets from outside to inside the engine. It also houses important sensors like mass airflow sensors and intake temperature sensors.

Coolant Reservoir Replacement

The coolant reservoir holds excess coolant and in the event that the cooling system starts to run a little low it can draw more coolant. It draws coolant out of the system if it gets too hot and then feeds this back to the cooling system. This stops the system from running dry and also giving you a clear indication of how much coolant is in the system.

Harmonic Balancer Replacement

A harmonic balancer is not a musical instrument, it’s a very important engine component. It’s connected to the crankshaft, and is almost always found at the front of the engine. Its primary job is to reduce vibrations in your engine and ensure smooth running. However, as it runs off of the crankshaft it’s usually used as a pulley to run the belts that power vital components such as: power steering, radiator fans, air conditioning and alternators.
