What is computer engine diagnostics?

The internal combustion engine has been used in the automotive industry for over a little bit over a century. The design constantly evolved, undergoing dramatic design changes over the many years. This part has come a long way compared to the very basic engines used in the beginning. In the XXI century, its design has been improved to such an extent that it has become possible to combine high efficiency and reliability while also significantly extending the service life of this important part of modern vehicles. Despite all the technological advancements over the years, the motors can still break and becomes unusable. Even German and Japanese cars, which are famous for their impeccable quality, do stop sometimes and need to be repaired. If you need original auto parts from Germany for Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Opel, Nissan, Toyota, Chevrolet or Renault, we are always ready to offer you the best products at competitive prices.

In order for the engine of your car to always be in a technically sound condition, it is essential to periodically carry out its full computer diagnostics. This will allow you to identify any engine malfunctions at an early stage, which in turn, will help with taking the necessary measures to eliminate the any future problems. Doing so early will extend the resource of your engine, thereby, significantly postponing complete part overhaul while also saving you time and money.

Computer engine diagnostics

Computer diagnostic equipment available in modern auto technical centers allows you to determine any, even the most hidden malfunctions at a very early stage. The potential malfunction is determined with higher accuracy at this stage. During this procedure, the interaction of individual units and engine parts is checked, and its general technical condition is also determined. In particular, the compression in the engine cylinders, the correct operation of the spark plugs, the oil pressure, the order of fuel injection, the accuracy of the injectors and other parameters are all measured to find any issues.

When do you need to repair your ICE?

The resource of modern engines is quite high and can range from 150 to 250 thousand kilometers. It depends on the operating conditions and some other factors though.

What factors have a particular effect on the resource and correct operation of the engine?

  • lack of preventive inspections, timely maintenance and skipping periodic service intervals;
  • low quality lubricants;
  • driving style and operation under extreme conditions;
  • abnormally high operating temperature of the engine.

It must be understood that the engine does not come into a malfunctioning state overnight. The internal combustion engine can function properly for a long period of time. But the signs of incorrect operation are going to manifest themselves more clearly eventually. It is extremely important not to delay periodic engine diagnostics.
With the engine resource depleting over time, its reliability and power decrease, and a planned replacement of the main elements can be required which usually costs a lot more in the long run.

Timely maintenance by replacing worn-out parts will help you to avoid unnecessary overhaul of the internal combustion engine or a complete replacement. The sooner the car owner discovers the signs of a malfunction, the easier, and more importantly, cheaper it will be to eliminate them.

Signs of engine malfunction

You should be alerted by the characteristic symptoms that might appear exclusively in faulty motors:

  • Strange, uncharacteristic sounds during the operation of the internal combustion engine;
  • Decrease in torque and overall power;
  • Unstable operation of the engine;
  • Significantly increased fuel or oil consumption;
  • Frequent rise in temperature or overheating;
  • Constant low pressure in some systems;
  • Excessive gases in the crankcase or low compression in the cylinders;
  • Excessive contamination of the spark plugs;
  • Mechanical damage.

It is worth noting that although a lot of attention is usually paid to this part of the vehicle during maintenance, this does not change the fact that it can also be one of the first parts to fail. The main reason for this is the very fact that it operates under high temperatures and loads, while also weathering constant mechanical and chemical effects of oils, lubricants and various operating parts of the engine block itself. The service life directly depends on the resource of such parts as connecting rod bearings, crankshaft, piston rings and pistons, valves and cylinders, etc. If you need any parts from this list or any other auto part from Germany for your vehicle, do not hesitate to contact Orient Global GmbH.
