5 Common causes of car engine failure
Car engines are necessary for cars to work. If an engine stops working the car won't be able to run. Here are 5 common causes of car engine failure.
1) Engine overheating
Overheating an engine can result in warped cylinder heads, broken pistons and head gaskets blown. It also could cause your car to stop running.
2) Bad fuel
Using bad fuel could cause stalling, loss of power or your car not to start at all. If you think you are using bad fuel the first thing you should check is if your gas tank cap is tightly closed.
3) Engine oil leaks
Oil leaks can result in a burning smell coming from the engine area, which could be because of burned oil. Oil leak could also cause metal shavings to come out of your engine, which are created when parts are being grinded against each other due to little lubrication provided by the oil. An oil leak could also lead to dirty spots appearing on the ground where your car has been parked for a period of time.
4) Engine misfires
An engine misfire is when your car's engine fails to fire. A rough idle and lack of power while driving are some symptoms that you could look out for. If an engine misfire occurs it will eventually lead to complete failure, which will require a new replacement engine.
5) Engine overheating due to lack of coolant
If your coolant level drops below the recommended specifications (usually on the reservoir within the car), your car's radiator won't be able to work efficiently in cooling down your car's engine. This can cause serious damage to parts inside your engine, including pistons, valves and cylinder heads. It also will decrease performance leading in loss of power or stalling when driving. You should have the cooling system of your car checked by a certified mechanic if you notice any of these symptoms.
