Engine Replacement

Automotive Engine Replacement in Sioux Falls, SD

Your car, truck, SUV or van’s engine runs smoothly thanks to several components working together. When one part breaks or dies, other parts stop working too. Sometimes, these components attempt to work regardless, which can lead to more breaks, extra wear and, in worst case scenarios, a fiery eruption. The engine is the heart of your vehicle. Don’t wait for it to stop. The moment you realize something may be wrong with it, call Team Automotive. Our talented team of ASE-certified mechanics are friendly, helpful and professional. They can diagnose your engine’s issue and let you know whether an engine repair is in order or if the damage is so extensive, you need to fully replace parts or your entire engine.

Common Engine Problems

To understand what common engine problems can occur, it’s important to note that each component – camshaft, pistons, flywheel, connecting rod, camshaft drive belt, crankshaft and sump – are interconnected. Even if an engine problem occurs, it isn’t necessarily limited to a single part. To accurately diagnose the issue, trust Team Automotive’s ASE-certified technicians. If you’re not sure whether the engine is really at fault, consider the following common engine problems.

  • Check engine light comes on
  • Check engine soon light comes on
  • Unusual rattling or vibrations
  • Loud sounds come from beneath the hood
  • Leaks
  • Engine overheating
  • Drop in performance
  • Unable to start or struggles to start

If your car is showing any of the above signs, bring it in to our auto repair shop as soon as possible. Leaving the issue alone and continuing to drive around may turn a simple repair into a complicated engine replacement, which will cost you significantly more time and money in the end.

Engine Service and Replacement

The best way to care for your car, truck, SUV or van’s engine is to bring it in to Team Automotive for regular checkups. If you want to tend to your vehicle on your own, here are a few ways to ensure it’s getting the care it needs.

  • Change oil regularly
  • Maintain coolant levels
  • Replace air filter regularly
  • Replace oil filter regularly
  • Check for leaks regularly
  • Inspect engine belts – replace when need be
  • Gas up before tank is empty
  • Replace spark plugs and wires as needed
  • Call Team Automotive when check engine light or check engine soon light appears
  • Call Team Automotive when unusual symptoms appear
  • Don’t speed up to slow down

When we say “Don’t speed up to slow down,” we mean if you see that cars ahead of you are slowing or coming to a complete stop, don’t continue to accelerate until the last minute. This wears the engine down unnecessarily. Slow down with the rest of traffic — or even before everyone around you starts to slow down — and protect your engine from unnecessary wear and tear. This also signals to other drivers that they need to slow down as well.

Whenever your vehicle displays unusual signs, always call Team Automotive so one of our ASE-certified mechanics can diagnose the issue. At our Sioux Falls auto repair shop, you’ll get a fair price for your auto engine replacement, whether you bring in a car, truck, SUV or van.
