Engine Repair and Service
The engine is the heart and soul of your car, without it your car’s going nowhere. That’s why proper engine repair and servicing are so important. Even a fully functional engine requires maintenance to keep it running reliably and efficiently.
With each passing year engines become more complex, efficient and reliable. However, engine troubles do occur and when they do the symptoms are not always as obvious as a persistently lit “check engine” light. Sometimes engine problems show in reduced power, strange smells, noises or even smoke. Regular engine servicing can help reduce the likelihood of major engine work. However if the need arises engine repair and tune-ups are one of our areas of expertise at Cowichan Auto Repair.

A cylinder head is the closed end of a cylinder (located in a car’s engine block). It sits above the cylinder block, closing the top of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. The cylinder head coordinates airflow in and out of the engine. Since the cylinder head’s chief function is to seal the cylinders properly, insufficient compression results in the car being difficult to drive. To have your cylinder head checked and repaired, talk to Cowichan Auto Repair‘s cylinder head repair and reconditioning specialists today.
A timing belt is a part of your car’s internal combustion engine. The belt synchronizes the camshaft and the crankshaft rotation so that the engine valves open and close at the correct timings. Also, the belt prevents the piston from striking the valves in an interference engine. A timing Belt is a rubber belt that usually features teeth on the inside surface, while a timing chain is a metal roller chain. Most cars we drive now have timing belts instead of timing chains and gears. Although different manufacturers have their recommended mileage, you need to have your car’s timing belt checked regularly. To have it checked by experts, contact us at Cowichan Auto Repair.
A cylinder block is the powerhouse for the motor vehicle. The solid cast car part houses the cylinders and their components (gaskets, valves, and seals) inside a lubricated and cooled crankcase. Since it is one of the most important parts of your car, the block is designed to be extremely strong and sturdy. Although strong and sturdy, the block is susceptible to failure resulting in a vehicle that won’t start. Cracked blocks, porous blocks, core plug, or freeze plug failure are some of the problems facing cylinder blocks.
