If your body were a car, the engine would be its heart. That's how important the engine is – it generates the power required to move the wheels. That is essentially the work of a vehicle: to take you from one place to another. If something is wrong with the heart of your vehicle, you may notice the check engine warning light appear on your dashboard. This is a sign that your car has detected an issue with a major component, and that it's time to have an inspection performed here at our shop.

University Tire & Auto Service is committed to providing top-tier engine repairs and replacement services in Los Angeles, CA. We've been in the automotive repair industry for 35 years and counting and have handled routine engine repair and engine rebuild jobs for almost all types and models of vehicles, including domestic and imported cars.

We are the Trusted Check Engine Light Professionals

Your vehicle has a computerized system that relies on input signals from sensors to trigger control signals within the fuel and spark delivery, transmission, and other connections. Usually, when there is a problem with any of these engine-related components, the check engine warning light will appear on your dashboard. The light doesn't indicate the issue, but it generates an error code that represents the source of the problem.

At University Tire & Auto Service, we have advanced technological equipment to carry out accurate car computer diagnostics to decode the issue behind your engine trouble. We have a team of ASE-certified technicians who have been servicing and repairing engines for years and who understand what common error codes indicate. You can have peace of mind knowing that your engine issues will be repaired by professional mechanics who understand the nitty-gritty about car engines.

Engine Repair vs. Engine Rebuild

Engine issues range from common to complicated problems. An engine repair is sufficient when just one part breaks or fails, in which case our professionals can replace the faulty part. An engine rebuild involves disassembling it, fixing the faulty parts, and reassembling it to then reinstall it. This is required if the engine completely fails and has a multitude of issues that need to be addressed.

Signs that You Need Engine Repair

We understand that dealing with a failing engine can be stressful. The sooner that we fix the problem, the less extensive the issue will become. This is why it is important to bring your vehicle into our shop as soon as you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Increased smoke emission from the exhaust
  • Knocking/clunking sounds
  • Rough idle
  • Deteriorating engine performance
  • Check engine light
