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 Traction control warning Light is on its often as a result of a:

  • Temporarily loss of traction
  • You have a defective wheel speed sensor or sensor wiring
  • Your TCS computer has failed

Popular services linked to a Engine Inspection:

Exhaust Manifold Gasket Replacement

You don't want your engine's exhaust pouring into your car. The exhaust manifold connects to your exhaust pipe, carrying gases towards the muffler until they exit via the tailpipe. It is the main gasket that seals and pressurises the entire exhaust system. Gaskets are used to seal gaps between two different surfaces. The surface where the exhaust manifold meets the engines parts must be sealed - this is what the Exhaust Manifold Gasket does.

Thermostat Replacement

The thermostat helps to do a whole bunch of important things in your cooling system. Think of it as a halfback, it’s small, manages a whole bunch of components and can cause headaches if it stops doing its job.

Radiator Top Hose Replacement

In order for your hot coolant to make it back to your radiator, it has to flow through a thick rubber hose. This is the radiator top hose. Over time, due to the pressure of the cooling system, the high heats from the coolant, and general wear and tear, the hose breaks down and will need to be replaced.

New Fuel Filter

Much like when you drink clean water, your car responds best to clean fuel. If any contaminants get into the fuel line, injectors, and combustion chamber, it can lead to damages and other issues. The fuel filter, surprisingly, filters the fuel that comes from the fuel tank to the engine.
