My name is Collins from Denver. I had my engine go out and had to have it completely re-done at Express Car Care in Denver. What could I have done to prevent this?
Express Car Care Tech Answer:
You’ve got to feel for Collins; an expensive major engine rebuild is pretty extreme. It’s a tough situation for Denver auto owners to be in: maybe you’re still making payments on your vehicle and nobody wants to buy it with a blown engine, so you really don’t have any choice but to pay the money to get it fixed. This is why your auto manufacturer and Express Car Care have preventative maintenance schedules – to help you avoid major repairs. Suppose you don’t change your timing belt on schedule and it breaks. That can mean bent valves and a damaged cylinder head.
Maybe you’ve made the mistake of skipping over the service recommendation to replace your coolant and end up with catastrophic overheating. It could be you’ve skipped a few too many oil changes and now sludge has built up in your engine to the point that expensive parts in your vehicle are being damaged.
The best way to prevent having to have your engine completely redone is to check your vehicle’s oil level every month and follow your auto manufacturer’s recommended service schedules. And if you’re behind on any services, just ask your helpful Express Car Care tech to help you work out a plan to get you back on schedule.
