The engine in your car won’t last forever. As your vehicle ages and the more miles you put on it the more the engine will wear down and start having trouble. There are several noticeable signs of engine problems if you know what to look for.
As problems begin to arise in the engine there are a few things you’ll notice as the vehicle slowly loses power. If your car has trouble accelerating as you’re driving, that is a good indication that the engine performance is diminishing. Your gas mileage will suffer as well as the engine begins to work harder to keep the vehicle moving.
If you begin having trouble starting up the engine, and it sounds rough when it does start running, you should take it in for maintenance. The engine typically makes plenty of noise when it’s having trouble so, if you notice the engine knocking or popping while running or your vehicle backfires on start-up, those are sure signs you should have your vehicle looked at.
You should have your vehicle checked by a mechanic if you think your vehicle is having engine problems. Dealing with the issue right away will prevent you from dealing with potential irreparable damage to the engine or your vehicle and ending up stranded on the side of the road.
