If your engine breaks down then you will need to seriously contemplate whether you want to have it repaired or just dispose of the vehicle. Engine repair can be that serious as an engine is the single most expensive and critical component of your vehicle.

Here are some issues to consider and questions to ask your mechanic when scheduling engine service for your vehicle:

State of the Engine and Cost of the Engine Service:

The first consideration is the age and condition of your car overall as well as the value of the vehicle if the engine is in good condition. There is a world of difference between having an engine rebuild performed on a fifteen-year-old sedan, which probably will never recover the cost of the engine repair, and a newer luxury vehicle which may quickly recover its value after the repair.

Know the 3 questions to ask your mechanic to know more about engine rebuild. Don’t neglect any engine repair problems either small or big!

Preventing car repair is an issue that many drivers overlook until they start to experience problems. As long as their car gets them where they want to go, they try not to spend money on it.  However, preventing auto repair issues can typically be accomplished by simply following the maintenance service schedule at the recommended auto service intervals.  It will actually save you money in the long run!  So, you may be asking, “What kind of maintenance service is needed?”; “How long does car service take?”; and "How do I prevent a major car repair?” 

Consider the following Question:

What Kind Of Maintenance Service Is Needed And How Often? 

Sometimes car owners don't know where to begin to service their car. The basic things that all cars need are fairly simple. Every vehicle has a unique service schedule. Consult your owner’s manual for the recommended service schedule, or be sure to ask your mechanic for expert advice. If you have a used car without a manual, most car manuals can be found online in PDF form and downloaded as needed. 

Ask your auto shop to find out how long does car service take so you can add it into your regular schedule. Don't wait until you need an urgent car repair.
