Parma Car Care Specialists: Ensuring Smooth Engine Performance 

In Business Since 1989

A car’s engine and transmission play an essential role. They are both responsible for ensuring your car can move. While the engine converts fuel into motion, the transmission relays power from the engine and into the car’s wheels. Should either one break, you need to have it repaired as soon as possible.

If ever you need engine and transmission services, visit Parma Car Care Specialists. Our team of highly skilled technicians can perform thorough diagnoses and comprehensive repairs on your vehicle. Schedule an appointment with us, and we’ll get your car back in top condition.

Our Engine and Transmission Services

1. Engine Replacement

When your car’s engine has suffered irreparable damage or is worn out beyond repair, it’s about time to replace it. Parma Car Care Specialists has skilled mechanics who can expertly replace and install a new engine properly. If other engine parts need replacing, we’ll let you know. 

2. Transmission Replacement

Automatic car transmissions typically fail around 80,000 to 150,000 miles. If your vehicle shows signs of transmission replacement, feel free to call our team. We’ll replace your worn-out transmission with a new one and ensure that your car runs smoothly. 

3. Cylinder Block

The cylinder block, also known as the engine block, is the mounting point for the other engine’s components, such as the water pump and cylinder heads. If your car’s cylinder block shows telltale signs of damage, such as visible engine smoke or oil discoloration, bring it to Parma Car Care Specialists, and we’ll replace it.  

4. Cylinder Head

Without a working cylinder head, your car won’t be able to regulate airflow and combustion. This means there will be an imbalance between the intake and exhaust of gasses and fluids. If you notice that your car’s cylinder head is cracked or has damaged valves, call us to perform the necessary repairs or replacements. 

5. Timing Belt

The timing belt ensures that the engine’s valves open and close at the correct time during the combustion cycle. Its job guarantees engine performance. After around 60,000 and 100,000 miles, your timing belt will show signs of wear. Before it causes damage to your engine, let’s check on it to see if it needs servicing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Warning signs include rough or delayed shifting, strange noises in neutral, and fluid leaks. If you experience any of these, bring your vehicle in for a thorough inspection. 

Changing transmission fluid every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is typically recommended but always refer to your vehicle’s manual for specific intervals. 

Overheating can result from radiator issues, a malfunctioning thermostat, coolant leaks, or a damaged water pump. Our team can determine the cause and safely get you back on the road. 

A timing belt synchronizes the engine’s camshaft and crankshaft, ensuring valves open and close at the proper intervals. A serpentine belt powers auxiliary engine components like the alternator, water pump, and air conditioning compressor. 

This could indicate transmission issues, faulty spark plugs, or fuel delivery problems. A visit to our shop can provide clarity and solutions. 

Driving with these crucial components damaged can lead to more extensive engine damage. It’s advisable to get the issue addressed immediately. 

A ticking noise might indicate low oil levels, a faulty lifter, or even issues with the timing belt. Prompt inspection is essential to prevent further problems.

Manual transmissions often require more frequent fluid changes and can be more susceptible to wear from driving habits. However, automatic transmissions have more parts and can be more complex to service. 

It depends on your car’s overall condition. Sometimes, an engine replacement can give your vehicle many more years of life, proving more cost-effective than purchasing a new car.
