How Do I Know If My Engine is Going Bad?

A faulty engine will typically let you know something is wrong with noises like backfiring, popping, hissing, or knocking. If you experience any of these, we recommend having your engine inspected immediately. These are signs that your engine isn’t working properly, which can lead to even bigger mechanical problems. In addition, your vehicle may not be safe to drive with engine problems.

 How often should I service my engine?

To help keep your engine running smoothly, have the oil changed in your Nissan every 7,500 miles or every six months, whichever comes first. When it comes to major service, your first will likely come at 15,000 miles. From there, seek major service at 30,000 miles, 60,000 miles, and 90,000 miles.

These are general guidelines, and you may need more frequent service or be able to go longer between major services. Consult your owner’s manual and ask your Nissan technician for more guidance on your model.

What is the basic maintenance of a car engine?

Basic, essential engine maintenance includes:

  • Regular oil changes 
  • Checking your battery terminals for corrosion
  • Changing your air filter every 12,000 to 15,000 miles
  • Replacing your fuel filter based on manufacturer recommendations
  • Watching for leaks
  • Checking your serpentine and timing belts for signs of wear
  • Monitoring your radiator 

Carrying out these basic maintenance tasks will ensure your vehicle is running efficiently and may help prevent more costly repairs in the future.

How do you keep your car engine healthy?

One of the best ways to keep your car engine healthy is by keeping everything lubricated with regular oil and filter changes. Most Nissans can go 7,500 miles between oil changes, so sticking to that oil change schedule is an excellent way to maintain your vehicle’s performance and extend its life.

Do engines need to be cleaned?

Yes, your engine needs to be cleaned, but not in the same way that the rest of your car does. The best way to “clean” your engine is by getting regular oil changes, checking your coolant, and replacing it when necessary, using a fuel additive, and getting regular tune-ups. All of this work to ensure that the fluids moving through your engine are clean, which will keep your engine running smoothly.

What is the most important regular maintenance for your engine?

One of the most important engine maintenance tasks is regular, professional oil changes. By removing the used, contaminated oil and replacing it with new oil, your engine will be able to run as smoothly as possible.

Is it cheaper to rebuild or replace an engine?

If your engine is showing signs of wear, you may be wondering if it’s cheaper to replace or repair it. While both are pricey, overhauling is almost always cheaper than replacing the engine completely. 

How long should a car engine last?

Most modern gas-powered car engines are designed to run to around 200,000 miles. With proper maintenance and careful driving, some Nissan drivers get up to 300,000 miles from their vehicle!

How do you know when your engine needs replacing?

Your vehicle will give you several signs that something is seriously wrong with the engine. If you experience any of the following, we recommend having your engine inspected:

  • Your check engine light is on
  • The engine is using more oil than usual
  • High emissions
  • New sounds coming from the engine
  • Low oil pressure
  • Frequent or consistent overheating
  • Power loss
  • Fluid leaks under the car

Is it worth replacing a whole engine?

This is dependent on several factors, including how many miles are on the engine, the condition of your vehicle, the vehicle’s value, and how much you like the vehicle. If the car is older and you replace the engine only for another major issue to come up–like transmission problems–you’re likely to end up spending more than the car is worth.

When dealing with an issue like this, we recommend speaking with a certified technician. They will be able to provide a quote and help you weigh your options. At Nissan of Orangeburg, we offer trusted service on Nissans and can assist with monthly specials on new Nissan SUVs, trucks, sedans, and more! 

What is the engine in a car?

If you have a gas-powered vehicle, your car is powered by an internal combustion engine. This type of engine burns gasoline and converts it into mechanical power.

Electric vehicles do not have internal combustion engines. They are powered by rechargeable batteries and electric motors.

Which car does not use an engine?

Electric vehicles (EVs) don’t have traditional engines but are instead powered by an electric motor and rechargeable batteries. 

At Nissan of Orangeburg, we offer a large selection of new and pre-owned electric Nissans if EVs pique your interest. Visit us today!
