Engine Repair & Diagnostics

The car engine is the most crucial and valuable part of the car, so it is essential to keep it properly maintained. At Action Automotive, we provide a wide range of engine repair and diagnostic services to keep your vehicles engine working at peak efficiency.

Signs of Engine Issues

Regular maintenance is necessary to keep your vehicle’s engine working effectively. Here are some signs to look for to determine if your engine may need repair.

  • Starting trouble
  • Overheating
  • Smoke or steam
  • Poor mileage
  • Idling and stalling
  • Flashing check engine light

Belts & Hoses

Belts can wear and break over time. A belt that becomes worn can slip and may not work effectively. Hose pipes may glaze and crack after years of use or when exposed to extreme temperatures. A malfunctioning hose pipe may result in vital fluids dripping from your engine and could create harm to engine parts. To stop some of the most common sources of breakdown, we recommend your belts and hoses are checked regularly.

Tune Ups

Tune-ups can extend the life of your vehicle by replacing engine parts that are vulnerable to deteriorating. The majority of automobiles need to have tune ups every 30,000 miles.

Regular tune-ups protect against future engine complications by replacing worn out parts. Keeping a regular tune-up timetable will help your vehicle last much longer, sustain a higher gasoline mileage, and boost efficiency.

Why tune ups are very important: Many vehicles have parts that are known to break over time. These parts are scheduled for maintenance during specific manufacture benchmarks, approximately every 30,000 miles. While these components may last longer than the suggested time frame it is wise to have them looked at on a regular basis. 

Muffler Repair

The role of an exhaust system is not just to dampen engine sound, but also to redirect dangerous fumes away from your vehicle. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odourless chemical that may escape from an unsecured exhaust system. If the carbon monoxide is breathed in it could cause incredibly severe health hazards. For your safety as well as the safety of your passengers, it is necessary to have your exhaust system inspected and sustained on a consistent basis. Effectively working exhaust systems can also assist in protecting the environment from unsafe emissions released into the atmosphere.


Drivelines should be examined at the first indicator of a trouble.

What they do: The driveline of your car takes the power generated by the engine and transforms it into the rotation of the tires, providing the velocity of your vehicle utilizing torque. Driveline wear occurs over time, and to avoid added repairs, any type of driveline worries need to be evaluated when possible.

Always have your tires and drivelines checked if you have the following troubles.

  • Turning issues especially when making tight turns, U-turns, or car parking
  • A low squeaking sound that worsens with deceleration
  • Vibrations that improve with velocity and vibrations that take place when the car is moving or idling

Electrical & Electronic Systems

If your vehicle experiences an electrical or electronic systems failure, it is beneficial to have the problem repaired quickly. A vehicle with electrical problems may not start, or it may become inoperative. Our experts are able to diagnose and repair problems during an electrical and electronic systems service. We can locate shorts, grounds, open, and resistance problems in electrical and electronic circuits, and we can repair wiring harnesses and connectors along with electrical wiring and solder repair.

Our staff is also able to diagnose the cause of uneven headlight brightness, intermittent lights, dim lights, and inoperative lights. In addition, we can service headlights and bulbs as well as correct intermittent turning signal and hazard light operation.
