Engine Diagnostic

Car Shakes When Idle After Starting
when the car shakes on idle after start up, it is an indication of a problem on engine misfiring. Usually one or more cylinder on the engine combustion chamber is misfiring.

Black Smoke from Exhaust of Car
Black smoke is an indication of too much gas burned inside the engine combustion chamber. Let us start the troubleshooting of the problem by determining why the engine burned too much gas.

Ticking Noise in Engine While Running
Engine ticking noise is commonly an indication of poorly lubricated engine. The reasons is the oil inside the engine is not much or just simply it lacks engine oil or might be the oil pressure inside the engine is low.

White Smoke from Exhaust of Car
If a white smoke happens before the engine warmed up or before it reaches the normal operating temperature during a cold morning then it is normal. When the car is parked outside overnight on cold surroundings, a condensation is formed inside the engine.

Car Jerks When Accelerating
Since the acceleration problem happens when the engine is cold especially during wet morning this suggests moisture in the distributor cap. This happens because when you park the car overnight especially on the outside, moisture is formed inside the distributor cap because of the wet weather.

Car Loses Power Going Uphill
This usually happens when the rings and valves inside the engine is worn out. An engine with worn rings and valves will have a low compression which makes the engine power to become weak especially when driving uphill.

Blue Smoke from Exhaust of Car
Blue smoke from exhaust of car means that the engine is burning oil. The most common reason why the engine is burning oil is because of the bad rings and usually when the engine has bad rings there is a power loss when driving uphill.

Engine Pinging Noise on Uphill
Pinging noise is usually related to an engine problem, also pinging can also related to low octane gasoline especially while driving uphill.
