5 Faulty Engine Parts That Can Lead To Engine Failure
Many drivers pay little attention to their car's engine until something goes wrong. This can lead to a more serious problem down the road that could have been prevented with simple maintenance and care. Following are five faulty engine parts you should always keep an eye on in order to prevent engine failure.
1. Air filter
This seemingly unimportant part of the car has a crucial job; to ensure that only clean air is sucked into the engine. The build up of dust and dirt over time can cause your car's engine to lose its efficiency and reduce gas mileage by as much as 30%. The vehicle will need more pep to pump out the same amount of horsepower it once did, which will eventually lead to serious injury if left unchecked. An air filter should be replaced at least once per year or every 20,000 miles, though this isn't always necessary. It all depends on how dirty the air is in your area and whether or not you drive under dusty conditions often
2. Camshaft position sensor
This motorized component has two jobs: to adjust the valve timing and act as an engine's timing belt. This part is integral in the smooth running of your car, so its replacement will be costly if it fails. If it does not function properly, you might notice knocking or pinging noises when accelerating at higher speeds, even though you are well within safe acceleration conditions. You can prevent camshaft position sensor failure by ensuring that your ignition timing is set properly and regularly monitoring any knocks or pings that could indicate this faulty motor part.
3. Fuel pump
The fuel pump is responsible for drawing gas into the vehicle's tank and sending it through the fuel line to reach each cylinder. Without a functional fuel pump, your car won't start up at all. If the pump starts to fail, it could send the gas back into the tank rather than forward through the fuel line and reach each cylinder, which will immediately cause your car to stop running. Fuel pumps should be replaced every 60,000 miles or so to prevent failure.
4. Ignition coil pack
This important component sends electrical current from the car battery to spark plugs that help start up your vehicle's engine each time you turn on your ignition key. When this part malfunctions, drivers might notice a staggering effect when accelerating as well as an automatic cut off of power while driving even though there is still more room for acceleration. Ignition coils can usually be tested with a multimeter and need replacement if they don't pass all diagnostic tests.
5. Throttle position sensor (TPS)
The throttle position sensor measures how open your car's throttle is to determine the rate at which gas will be released into your engine when you press on the accelerator pedal. If this component malfunctions, you might notice jerky acceleration or difficulty reaching normal cruising speeds when driving up a hill or an incline in the road. The throttle position sensor should be replaced every 100,000 miles to prevent system failure and ensure safe driving conditions.
