Car Engine Repair & Light Service in Calgary
Frequently Asked Questions About Engine Repair in Calgary
We’ve worked on a lot of engines over the years, and in that time, we’ve helped customers just like you identify issues with their cars. That’s why we have taken the time to outline some of the most frequent concerns you might have when you visit our shop:
The Head Gasket
The head gasket is the seal that sits between the piston cylinders and engine block—it is the head of the engine which usually houses the camshaft and the valves.
Occasionally, the gasket will begin to leak oil or allow coolant and oil to comingle. When this happens, you’ll notice that a creamy sludge has built up under the oil filler cap. Don’t wait to fix this problem. Contact a professional for head gasket repair in Calgary and avoid damaging the wrist pins, connecting rods, oil pump, and main crankshaft.
Most often if an engine repair is necessary, our servicemen in the Calgary area can assess the condition of the engine and either recondition or remove the head, fit new intake gaskets or head bolts, and replace oil pumps, water pumps, etc. so that you don’t have to replace your engine.
Your Check-Engine Light
Not sure if you need car engine light service in Calgary? When in doubt, check your owner’s manual. And as a general rule, make an appointment with Speedy Apollo when a yellow or orange warning light shows up on the dash. If the light is red or flashing, pull the vehicle over and do a check for abnormal smells or leaks around or under the engine—if you find something unusual, do not continue driving the vehicle.
Remember, a tow truck may be costly, but not nearly as much as a new engine. For more information or if your car engine is in need of repair in Calgary, give us a call today!
