    5 Common Faulty Engine Parts




    Getting a faulty engine is an inevitable risk that most car owners face.

    If the problem seems to be with your engine, don't panic.

    There are some common faulty parts with your engine.

    Here are five of them:

    1) Valve cover gasket replacement - This is one of the most common problems in cars with overhead valves or push rods. If you notice excess oil on top of valve cover, then there is something wrong with the valve cover gaskets. They need to be replaced right away before it damages other components inside the engine compartment. It's also good to inspect rocker arms for springy/loose movement, rather than firmly attached "rocker". If any of the rocker arms have this issue, your engine will be in a pretty bad shape.

    2) Oil leaks - One of the most common problems is a leaking head gasket. It's less likely for a leaky head gasket to damage anything else (except maybe water pump), but it makes running the car difficult due to loss of cooling fluid and possible power loss if spark plugs get wet. When you notice steam coming out from under car when on cold start, or there is an oil trail behind you on highway, then check your radiator cap. If it isn't holding pressure (bubbles come out while running with engine hot at idle), then chances are high that something is wrong with your cylinder head gaskets. While technically possible for a piston to hit a valve and score cylinder head, this is not common in many models.

    3) Turbochargers - These devices make driving more fun because they force-feed extra air into engine intake, giving extra power. But it can be difficult to maintain proper temperature. If your turbocharger isn't operating properly due to lack of oil or coolant, then you will almost certainly see some black smoke coming out of the exhaust pipe. Other signs of turbo issues are hesitation while accelerating on highway or loss of power during acceleration on city roads. You can run an OBD2 diagnostic test for free at Autozone stores (or similar stores). This will help identify any problems with your car's components.

    4) Wheel bearings - These are typically not common faulty engine problems because they typically don't fail until the car has high mileage and is past warranty period. Wheel bearings (or simply "bearings") allow your wheels to rotate freely. If you notice a humming or buzzing noise at speed, more pronounced on turns, it means that there is something wrong with the wheel bearing. Replacing them isn't very expensive, but if left unattended for too long then your entire drive axle will need replacement which can be quite costly.

    5) Harmonic balancer - Do you know what's this? Probably not! This is a part of your engine that connects crankshaft to transmission shaft using rubber belt (serpentine belt). It's usually hidden behind fan belt pulley, so it's hard to see without taking parts apart. If this part is faulty or worn out, the engine will shake at idle. It can be very difficult to notice if you don't know what to look for when checking under your car. Check your service manual for exact locations of harmonic balancers in your model's engine bay.
