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.
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.
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.
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.
Hydraulic Lifter Replacement
Hydraulic lifters are a complicated little part that are integral to a complicated system. They use oil to control the amount of lift that the camshaft gives to the valves. The lifters make sure that your engine runs smoothly and remove the need for valve adjustments.
