Popular services linked to a Engine Inspection:

Drive Belt Tensioner Replacement

Spinning all of the pulleys that power your cars’ accessories takes a lot of force. In order to stop the drive belt slipping on the various pulleys, the tensioner keeps the belt tight and the friction strong to ensure the belt doesn’t slip.

PCV Valve Replacement

Your PCV valve sounds like a very complicated thing. In reality it just lets some pressure out of the engine. This pressure is built up due to the engine's rotations and heat, the PCV valve is responsible for venting this pressure into the intake.

Idler Pulley Replacement

The idler pulley is a component that doesn’t power anything but it makes sure that things can be powered correctly. Your drive belts power things like power steering, alternators, water pumps etc. The idler pulley makes sure that all of these can be powered as they should and that all the required belts stay where they should.

Exhaust Repair

An exhaust pipe is responsible for carrying combustion gases out of your car. More technically it connects from the exhaust manifold to the muffler. It is usually made out of steel but they can also be stainless steel or aluminised steel. Because of the acids and grease the exhaust pipe carries it is one of the few parts on your car that wears even when the car is not running.
