5 Common Faulty Engine Parts
An engine is a very complex part of the car.
It is basically an air pump with some additional small parts, which all work together to burn fuel and produce power for the vehicle.
If any one of these parts fails, it can cause serious problems to your engine, making it difficult or even impossible for you to drive your vehicle safely.
To help you understand what might be causing problems with your engine, we have compiled this list of 5 common faulty engine components:
1) Faulty Spark Plugs & Plug Wires
Worn out spark plugs are usually the first thing that makes an engine misfire. A worn out spark plug doesn't fire at its usual intensity or duration, if at all. This makes the engine very difficult to start in cold weather, and when it does start, it misfires.
When this happens continuously for a long time, carbon deposits can build up on the insulator of spark plugs. This makes the spark plugs work less effectively, increasing your chances of stalling or misfiring under load.
The best way to know if you have faulty spark plugs is by having them checked out at an authorized Lexus/Toyota dealer.
Faulty plug wires are also extremely common in older cars.
As their insulation wears down over time, they get loose around the terminals of spark plugs which causes sparks at plug gaps less often or at inaccurate times. This means that some cylinders might not fire when they should, causing the engine to misfire.
2) Faulty Fuel Injectors
Fuel injectors are an essential part of car's fuel delivery system. They get their name from the fact that they shoot a very fine spray of highly-pressurized liquid into your combustion chamber. This allows your engine to burn gasoline very efficiently and completely, giving you more power and better fuel economy.
Faulty ones do not allow for complete burning of gasoline in all cylinders, leading to poor performance and reduced mileage. To know if a faulty injector is causing problems with your engine, take a look at your oil or check out this article on knowing when you need new spark plugs .
3) Clogged Air Filter
The air filter is an extremely important part of your engine's intake system. It keeps dust and debris out of your engine, allowing it to take in clean, fresh air at all times.
A clogged one drastically reduces the amount of oxygen that reaches your engine, making it difficult for it to make power or even start up. This could potentially cause major damage because of carbon building up in your combustion chambers over time.
To check if the air filter needs replacing, simply pop open your hood and look at it. If you can't see light through it when held up to a bright light source, then you only have two choices: get a new one or have someone clean yours for you with compressed air .
4) Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor
The Mass air flow sensor measures the amount of air going into your engine, and converts this information to a voltage for your car's ECU.
They are very economical in terms of replacing, but it is still highly advisable that you replace them when they fail due to their importance in regulating fuel intake.
5) Dirty Engine Oil
Just like with anything else around the house, an engine needs fresh oil every so often. It keeps all internal components lubricated and cool, but most importantly prevents corrosion from harmful elements such as water or salt being mixed into the oil from condensation on the cylinder walls. This can cause a lot of damage to your engine if left unattended .
