ENGINE MAINTENANCE

ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Peoples Choice Auto Repair to help you protect your investment. Call us at 865-272-3379 or visit our shop in Oak Ridge 37830.



These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Peoples Choice Auto Repair, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 865-272-3379 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Peoples Choice Auto Repair to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair in Oak Ridge, TN 37830. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Peoples Choice Auto Repair in Oak Ridge, TN 37830.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Peoples Choice Auto Repair, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 865-272-3379 or visit Peoples Choice Auto Repair today.

Wonderful experience here. I'm currently making this post on A Saturday. I originally called on a Monday for a 3 hour job and was told that the next appointment wasn't until the next week on Tuesday. But due to hard work I was able to get in two days later on Thursday to get my car back on the road. I would've still been waiting 3 more days to make money so that's awesome. And the mechanic was very informative on future work I need to get done and with his advice and helping my gear shift which was not included in the job I was able to drive my car back 380 miles home with a near blown transmission. Five star for sure.

Didn't have the product or service I needed fix a flat or a used tire or plug kit. They did have reasonably priced new tires and friendly staff. Only 50$ to put a new set of tires and rims on that I had previously purchased. They also offered me a bottle of water as I fumbled thru my pockets for change in front of the soda machine. I hadn't even purchased anything. Good people, friendly staff. Hard to find this day and age especially confusing I walked in with a huge backpack overstuffed and dirty as can be from jacking up a vehicle in the dirt and looking rough.

Thousands of miles from home the dreaded check engine light came on. We took our Honda to them. They got us right in and identified the problem, got it repaired and we were on our way. About 8 miles down the road the check engine light came back on. Back we went. Seems that Hondas are particular beasts and don't work with after market parts. They stood behind their work, replaced the parts with OEM parts at no cost. Good honest hard working folks. If your car breaks down around Oak Ridge, take it to People's Choice.
