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 Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. to help you protect your investment. Call us at 919-934-2694 or visit our shop in Smithfield 27577.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

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 919-934-2694 or visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. 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 Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. 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 Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. in Smithfield, NC 27577. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

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 Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc., we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 919-934-2694 or visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. today.

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 Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. in Smithfield, NC 27577.

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 Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc., we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 919-934-2694 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Testimonials

  • They do a very thorough check of my car at each oil change to make sure there isnt any issues that I should be concerned about. It does take a little longer to check it over instead of just changing the oil and filter, but my peace of mind in knowing whats going on with my car is worth a few more minutes of my day. If there is a "list" of things my car needs they will let me know if any are safety related or if there maintenance related. I would rather know whats wrong rather than drive around thinking everything is fine when its not. Love the shop and the people. Highly recommend!

  • We brought our car here as a referral from another customer who had a good experience. The staff was excellent and went above and beyond to make sure the issue with our car was corrected. They did give us a list of other things that needed to be corrected with our car, which we found was very helpful. We were able to plan what repairs were needed and when to get them done. Never once did they try to push or sell us services. We are thankful for honest mechanics.
