The following are signs that mean you need engine repair service:
A “Check Engine” light will look slightly different on each car, so consult your manual. If it is on, there is likely something wrong with your car. Whether it is a large or small issue, our service technicians will be able to take care of it and get that light off.
If your car seems to have more smoke coming out of the back than it should, it likely means that your engine is burning too much of something. Black exhaust indicates excessive gas use. White or blue exhaust fumes tell you that coolant (white) or oil (blue) has seeped into your combustion chamber. Thus, any of these signs warrant your attention.
Knocking sounds result from worn engine bearings. This is extremely time-sensitive – not replacing worn bearings might kill the engine. If any of the above sounds like you, schedule an appointment online or visit us today at Lee Nissan in Ft. Walton Beach, FL.
