Yeck's Tire & Auto Tech Question on Engine FailureMay 9th, 2014
Yeck's Tire & Auto Tech Question:
I'm Collins of Bellevue. I had my engine go out and had to have it completely re-done at Yeck's Tire & Auto in Bellevue. What could I have done to prevent this?
Yeck's Tire & Auto Tech Answer:
You've got to feel for Collins: an expensive major engine rebuild is pretty extreme. It's a tough situation 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 have no choice but to pay the money to get it fixed.
This is why your vehicle manufacturer and Yeck's Tire & Auto have preventive 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 skipped over the Yeck's Tire & Auto 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 vehicle to the point that expensive parts in your engine are being damaged.
Check your vehicle oil level every month and follow your recommended service schedules. And if you're behind on any services, ask your friendly and knowledgeable pros at Yeck's Tire & Auto to help you work out a plan to get caught up.
