Failure to Launch?

There is nothing worse than something going wrong with the engine in your car. You get that sinking feeling in your stomach when you realise it’s going to cost you a fortune to have fixed and you feel helpless.

An engine failing can be caused by a great many things, but diagnosing the problem can be categorised into three groups: Overheating, lack of lubrication and knocking. To give you a bit more of an insight into what might have gone wrong with your engine, here are a few possibilities.

Overheating is caused by anything that hinders the engine coolant’s capacity to work. Your thermostat could be faulty, there could be a  leak in your engine cooling system or your head gasket could have blown to name but a few causes.

Lack of lubrication is caused and resolved by one simple task; putting oil in the engine. If your oil hasn’t been checked and refilled regularly, there is nothing to lubricate the metal components inside the engine.

Knocking (or detonation) is pretty serious and is caused by the engine fuel exploding erratically instead of burning smoothly. Over a period of time, knocking can cause problems with you cars head gasket.
