ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Southaven Car Care to help you protect your investment. Call us at 662-393-4468 or visit our shop in Southaven 38671.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Southaven Car Care to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 662-393-4468 or visit Southaven Car Care today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Southaven Car Care today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Southaven Car Care in Southaven, MS 38671. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Southaven Car Care, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 662-393-4468 or visit Southaven Car Care today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Southaven Car Care in Southaven, MS 38671.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Southaven Car Care, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 662-393-4468 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Very friendly atmosphere! They're very knowledgeable and the prices are reasonable. I'm returning for the second time and wouldn't take my vehicle anywhere else for repairs.


-Michael C.

Lesson learned today: go to Southaven Car Care first! I went to three other places thinking I had a minor problem and all three offered different opinions of the problem which none of them repaired because I continued to experience various degrees of the problem. Southaven Car Care correctly diagnosed the problem, repaired the problem and had me back on the road before lunch time. Great way to do business guys - thank you.


-Sara S.

Top-notch service with polite and professional personnel, who truly care about your experience with them. We have taken both of our autos to them for several years and trust them completely. These are honest, hard-working auto technicians, who will give you a fair price and great service, which is difficult to find in their industry. They have earned our trust and loyalty and my wife and I plan to continue taking our vehicles to them whenever we need automotive repair work.


-Aaron R.

Been taking my families vehicles for years to Tom and Chris and would never hesitate to recommend them to anyone! Professional and courteous service. 100% satisfaction!


-Bobby M.

Fast, prompt and professional service. I would take my vehicle to the business again. Great job Southaven car care. I just think the check out fee should be waived if you use this service, after the vehicle has been diagnosed.
