Do You Need an Engine and Gearbox Rebuild and Repair Specialist?

A car’s engine is like its heart, and how well the engine runs determines your car’s lifespan. A car’s engine is the most important component, and no matter how well we take care of our car, engine faults that are out of our control can and will occur.

Car engine faults can include oil degradation and clogging of the grease filter, loss of oil in the coolant, a broken thermostat or water pump, low oil levels, a damaged oil pump, internal electrical faults and the malfunctioning of internal components, such as bearings, seals, axles and others.

A reliable engine rebuild specialist will try to implement an efficient, inexpensive, flexible and professional engine rebuild service for you, regardless of whether your car runs on diesel or petrol. HaMuch offers a comprehensive database of local engine rebuild shops near you, and can help you find the right specialist for the job.

What Does an Engine and Gearbox Rebuild and Repair Mechanic Do?

The main duties of a car engine repair and gearbox specialist include:

  • Carrying out diagnostic checks: The specialist will perform a check to determine the best methods to rebuild or repair your vehicle’s engine. Some advanced diesel diagnostic checks quickly allow technicians to identify the work they need to do.
  • Checking the cooling system: Leaky pipes or a defective cooling water pump can cause a loss of cooling water. This can result in the engine overheating, which can cause serious damage. An engine and gearbox rebuild service near you will be able to detect any problems with the cooling system to prevent further damage.
  • Inspecting the oil level: If your engine is experiencing problems, it may be that the oil level is too low or too high, or there is old oil in the circuit. An engine repair specialist will be able to check the oil level and conduct an oil change according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Repairing and rebuilding: A specialist can rebuild a damaged engine, which may end up being the more economically practical option when compared to a full replacement or repair. An engine rebuild includes the replacement of the bearings, seals and gaskets.
