Entrust Your Engine Repair Only To The Experts

Engine Repair in Canton, CT | Collinsville Auto Repair. Closeup image of an auto mechanic working on a car engine in a car garage.The engine is the powerplant for your vehicle and has many moving parts in and on it.

While accessories such as the alternator and power steering pump are technically not part of the engine, they are on the engine and sometimes considered part of “engine repair.” 

Other systems that work in conjunction with the engine include the ignition system, fuel delivery system, computer system, and cooling system. Diesel and gas-powered vehicles have the same systems, though they might work differently.

Collinsville Auto Repair has all the diagnostic equipment and tools for engine service and repair. We do our best to get you back on the road as soon as possible.

Engine Support Systems Repair in Canton, CT

A vehicle’s computer system runs the engine via various sensors and senders. 

Some of the sensors tell the computer what the driver is asking for, such as more speed. Others feed information back to the computer so that the computer can make adjustments to obtain the best fuel economy.

The sensors and senders also tell the computer when something is not working correctly. The computer then stores a code and turns the check engine light on. 

Collinsville Auto Repair has the diagnostic equipment to determine the code and why the computer set the code.

Fuel and Ignition System Repairs in Canton, CT

While the engine is a vital part of a running vehicle, it doesn’t do good if the spark and fuel do not exist. 

  • The intake pulls fuel and air into the combustion chamber, usually at a ratio of 14:1 on the intake stroke
  • The compression stroke then compresses the air and fuel mixture, making it more combustible. 
  • The spark plug fires in the cylinder on the combustion stroke to ignite the air and fuel mixture. The resulting explosion pushes the piston down. 
  • The next stroke is an upstroke—the exhaust stroke, where the engine pushes gases out of the combustion chamber and into the exhaust.

For such things to work, the injectors and spark plugs must fire at the right time. If either the ignition system or fuel system malfunctions, the vehicle will not run properly or may not run at all.

The auto technicians at Collinsville Auto have experience in engine repairs, including the various systems that support the engine.
