Toole’s Garage Stockton offers broad range of automotive repairs, including Audi engine repair. Diagnosing and repairing engine problems requires highly refined skills, especially when dealing with fine German engineering. Fortunately, our technicians are not only equipped with state-of-the-art digital diagnostic tools, but also possess extensive knowledge as validated by their certification through the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). When your Audi develops engine issues, bring it to our Stockton auto care facility, and we will get the problem diagnosed and fixed, so your Audi can server you reliably for years to come.
Engine problems can be caused by age, overheating, timing belt or timing chain issues, lack of regular maintenance, or simply because of a defective part. While the car manufacturers have made tremendous improvements in the production quality, sometimes an inferior part will get produced and slip through quality control. Fortunately, it’s pretty rare.
Just as the doctors do not recommend self-diagnosing health problems, we do not recommend self-diagnosing issues with your Audi’s engine. There are however a few sings that signal trouble, and it’s good to be aware of them – any time you notice symptoms listed below, it’s important to have your Audi checked out by a professional mechanic:
Check engine light “on” – never to be ignored – it could mean major repairs ahead if the issue is not addressed in a timely fashion. If the check engine light is flashing, park your Audi as soon as it is safe to do so, turn off the engine, and have it towed to a local auto repair garage – otherwise you are risking expensive engine damage.
Another warning sign is oil leak – engine operating without sufficient engine oil will sustain severe damage. So if you see even a few drops of the engine oil on the garage floor or in the driveway, check oil level, top up if necessary, and make an appointment with your friendly local mechanic to have the leak located and fixed.
Strange noises coming from the engine compartment, decreased mileage, or dark or white exhaust coming from the tail pipe – these are all reasons to make an appointment and have your Audi’s engine inspected by a professional mechanic.
At Toole’s Garage in Stockton we offer convenient appointments, friendly customer service, highly skilled, nationally ASE certified technicians working on your Audi, and industry-leading nationwide 36 month / 36,000 mile warranty on all repairs performed at our Stockton auto care facility.
