Without your engine, your car is just a giant heap of metal. There’s so many different complicated parts working in unison, it’s important to make sure they’re all in working order. There are a few basic things to watch out for. Here’s a short list of signs that your engine is having trouble and might need repairs:
Increased gas consumption:
If your car’s gas consumption increases noticeably, it’s a good sign that your engine is having trouble. It’s a good idea to take your car in right away, as you’ll be losing money every time you visit the gas station.
If you hear a banging noise coming from under your hood, especially while accelerating, it’s probably a problem with the engine. The cause could be anything from a poor-quality tank of gas to miniature explosions in your engine. The ladder can make a complete replacement necessary if it’s not repaired immediately.
Generally, cars today don’t emit too much of a bad smell out of the exhaust. That’s why, if you notice one, or just notice a change, it’s a good sign that something is damaged in your car. It could be the exhaust itself or the engine.
