Engine Diagnostics and Replacements

Oil Changes

Your car is one of your most important possessions, and you don’t want to take any risks when it comes to keeping it running smoothly and safely for many years to come. Oil changes are an essential part of vehicle maintenance but are often neglected by busy vehicle owners who may not be sure of the right frequency or know just how important this service is.

Motor oil cleans, cools, and protects the engine of your car, and should be scheduled regularly for optimal vehicle performance. Clay’s Auto Repair provides fast oil changes at a fair price.

Engine Diagnostics and Replacements

When your vehicle’s engine light turns on, this is no matter to ignore. Your check engine light turns on when there’s an issue with your engine. While it can inform you that there is a problem with your engine, you won’t know what the issue is unless you seek the help of professionals. That’s where we come in at Clay’s Auto Repair. The next time your engine light turns on, be sure to stop by or call ahead to schedule a time for us to inspect your engine. We’ll run an engine diagnostic test to help figure out the issue and get your car in tip-top shape as soon as possible.

Why Do I Need an Engine
Diagnostic Test?

If your check engine light does turn on, you may wonder why an engine diagnostic test is necessary. Sometimes professionals can easily identify the issue at hand without running an engine diagnostic test, but many times the problem with your engine may not be so obvious. This is when an engine diagnostic test is needed. It can help determine the issue with your engine or any underlying issues that haven’t yet become a big problem. Engine diagnostic tests can help save lots of money, especially when we detect an issue before it turns into something that needs expensive repairs.

Oil Types Available

At Clay’s Auto Repair, we provide a wide variety of oil types, brands, weights, and viscosity levels. Synthetic blend, full synthetic, high viscosity, conventional, high mileage . . . the labels can be confusing, but our mechanics can talk you through your options and help you identify what high-quality motor oil would be best for your vehicle.

When Should I Replace
My Engine?

If your check engine light turns on, this doesn’t necessarily mean your vehicle’s engine needs to be replaced. But occasionally this is the case. If you encounter any of these issues, it may be time for you to consider replacing your vehicle’s engine.

Loud noises coming from under the hood of your car are a major sign that something is wrong with your engine. Pay attention to banging or knocking noises, which are often attributed to issues with the bottom of your engine. If your engine is making loud noises, be sure to bring in your vehicle to have it looked at by our professionals.

If you’re noticing a loss in power, stalling, or issues with accelerating, this could indicate an internal issue with your engine. While a gradual loss in power over many years is normal for any vehicle, if you’re noticing these issues in a short period, it could be a sign that your engine needs to be replaced.

Different colors of smoke coming from your vehicle’s tailpipe can often be a bad sign. While smoke doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll need your engine replaced, if you don’t have your car checked out and continue to drive it with the smoke, your engine will need to be replaced over time.
