Your engine is the heartbeat of your vehicle. Unfortunately, like many components of your vehicle, it wears out and breaks down over time. The team at Demore’s Automotive wants to help you extend the life of your engine by offering comprehensive and reliable engine maintenance and repair services.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That goes for your health, your finances, and your vehicle. To us, that starts with your vehicle’s fluid, especially engine oil. It is your engine oil’s job to lubricate your engine’s components, reducing friction and keeping it from overheating. However, as engine oil ages it breaks down and no longer works as intended.
Getting a regular oil change is the easiest thing you can do to maintain your vehicle’s integrity and extend the life of your engine. Typically, the recommendation is to have your oil changed every 3,000 miles or every 3 months. At Demore’s Automotive, we recommend that you consult with one of our expert mechanics for the oil change schedule that is right for your vehicle.
There are multiple factors that determine the frequency of oil changes your vehicle needs. The make and model of your car, overall condition, and your personal driving habits all play a part.
When you choose Demore’s Automotive for your oil change and engine maintenance, our team will give your engine a thorough inspection. Our goal is to catch minor engine issues before they turn into costly catastrophes.
Even with proper maintenance, your engine will eventually be in need of repair. During maintenance, we will inspect your engine for any issues, but we also want you to know the signs that your engine is failing so you can catch it in time.
Your check engine light is a good indicator that you need to have your engine inspected. Check engine lights light up for anything from a loose gas cap to more complicated engine issues. If your check engine light is on, come to Demore’s Automotive for a diagnostic test. Our technicians will use state of the art equipment to pinpoint the cause of your check engine light and advise you on what to do next.
When it comes to your vehicle, trust your gut. Engine noises and out of the ordinary movement are never a good sign. If you are hearing a knocking noise coming from under the hood you need to bring your vehicle in immediately. The same goes for engine shaking and vibration. Putting off engine issues can cause engine failure sooner rather than later.
Whether it is time for an oil change or you suspect your engine is in need of a complicated repair call Demore’s Automotive at 413-252-8087 to schedule an appointment.
