3 Signs You Need a Replacement Engine

A car is a hefty, long-term investment, and with regular maintenance, it can certainly last for the long term. However, eventually, certain parts of your car will reach their lifespan as a result of normal wear and tear or, in some cases, a lack of regular maintenance. Driving with a bad engine is dangerous for you, other drivers, and for the environment. Here are some signs that you are in need of an engine replacement.

Increased Exhaust Smoke

A healthy, working engine shouldn’t be releasing a lot of smoke. If you notice that, as you drive, you’re leaving a smoky path behind you, then it’s time to consider that something might be wrong. The exhaust smoke can be released in different colors, with each color indicating a different problem with your engine.

Black smoke means too much fuel is burning while you drive, blue smoke means you’re burning oil, and white smoke can mean that there is a leak in the cooling system. A leaking cooling system quickly puts your engine at risk of overheating.

Engine Knocking Noises

Luckily, noises are easy to notice and are an immediate sign that something is off. Often times, catching an unusual noise will help you solve the problem before it gets worse. In the case of a troubled engine, when you hear a noise that means something is terribly wrong and it needs to be addressed immediately. A knocking and rattling noise that gets louder as you rev up the engine is even more alarming. Typically, this indicates that the engine’s bearings are excessively worn, which will very quickly cause the whole engine to break down, so it’s best to buy the replacement car part so you don’t put your daily drives to work at risk.

Flakey Oil

It’s important to make sure that every time you go for an oil change, the technician checks the previous oil for any bits and flakes of metal floating around. If it turns out that your oil has metal flakes in it, this is highly indicative that there has been an increase in the friction between all of its moving parts. This suggests that the engine isn’t properly lubricated and has now undergone extensive damage.
