We ensure that our products meet the stringent requirements of the renowned automotive maker to give you peace of mind. So whether you have a petrol or diesel engine, we can help you get back on the road as soon as possible.
The mechanism of a petrol engine is relatively straightforward. Gasoline is supplied to the engine’s cylinders through a high-pressure fuel injection system that atomises the fuel into a fine mist. Air is mixed with the fuel in the cylinders, and this mixture of fuel and air is compressed and ignited by a spark plug, resulting in fuel combustion and rotary engine motion.
A diesel engine works similar to a petrol engine, but it has a compression-ignited injection system instead of a spark-ignited injection system. Fuel is injected directly into the cylinders and is ignited by the high temperatures reached when the piston compresses.
The injectors must withstand high temperatures and immense pressure inside the cylinders to deliver the fine mist of fuel necessary for combustion. Engineers continue to come up with ways to make this system more efficient. For example, some diesel Ford engines employ control modules that use sensors to time the injection.
Common Symptoms of Damaged Engines
There’s no definitive way to tell whether your engine is damaged, but the following are common symptoms that indicate possible trouble:
- Loss of engine power
- Excessive oil or fuel consumption
- A buildup of oil under the vehicle
- Contamination of oil, coolant, or fuel
- Excessive smoke from the engine bay
- Suspicious noises like knocking and rattling
If your vehicle is showing signs of engine damage, have it inspected by a mechanic immediately to avoid further complications.

How to maintain an engine?
The engine is essentially the heart of your vehicle. It needs to be in good condition at all times to keep your car roadworthy. If you want to extend the longevity of your engine, follow these simple steps:
Change the engine oil regularly
Your car’s engine oil ensures all moving parts are lubricated to fight wear and tear. It’s also responsible for trapping dust and sediments to keep them away from critical components. Make sure you check your oil levels at least once a month and have the oil changed as often as your vehicle requires.
Keep an eye on the cooling system
The cooling system ensures effective heat dissipation to protect the metal and alloy components of your engine. A mixture of equal parts of coolant and distilled water is effective at maintaining manageable temperatures. Moreover, always keep an eye on the engine temperature gauge to prevent your engine from overheating, especially on hot days.
Check the air filter
Your engine requires a sufficient flow of oxygen to work optimally. If its airflow is restricted, it can fail to burn fuel efficiently and increase emissions. Thus, it’s essential to have your air filter checked and cleaned regularly. If too much dirt and debris have accumulated, you can replace it altogether.
Avoid running on reserve fuel
Fuel has sediments that settle at the bottom of your gas tank. You don’t want these contaminants to reach the engine and cause damage, so avoid running on reserve fuel and keep your tank filled.
Check the belts
The rubber belts around your engine keep everything in tune, so if you hear a squealing noise from under the hood, check the belts for cracks and signs of wear. If they break while the engine is running, it can lead to serious damage to your components.
