When it comes to engine functionality, it can sometimes be difficult to tell when your vehicle needs to be serviced. In order to avoid safety hazards or expensive future repairs, it is important to be able to recognize the signs of an engine that is malfunctioning and needs to be serviced. Here at our Chevy service center, we have a team of professional mechanics that is ready to give your engine top-notch service. Here are some signs that your engine needs to be serviced.

Exhaust Indications

If you’re driving and start to notice excessive exhaust smoke coming out from your vehicle, that is the first sign that it needs to be serviced. It generally comes out of your tailpipe tinted a certain color. If the exhaust is blue, it generally indicates an oil leak occurring inside the motor, which can lead to major engine damage. Black exhaust means that your vehicle is burning too much gasoline, which decreases the car’s efficiency. White exhaust signals a cooling system leak that allows coolant to be burnt in the engine.

Additional Signs

If you’re finding that your pre-owned or new Chevy car is having trouble getting up to speed or you notice a decrease in miles per gallon, it could be a sign of engine trouble. Another indication of trouble is a knocking sound coming from your engine, which usually occurs because of worn-out engine bearings.

Finally, if your check engine light is illuminated, it could be a sign of engine trouble. The mechanics at our Chevy service center can hook your vehicle up to a computer for proper diagnosis.
