ENGINE MAINTENANCE

ENGINE MAINTENANCE, Rockville, MD

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 Golden Gears Automotive, Inc to help you protect your investment. Call us at 301-770-2230 or visit our shop in Rockville 20852.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

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 Golden Gears Automotive, Inc, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 301-770-2230 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

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 Golden Gears Automotive, Inc 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 301-770-2230 or visit Golden Gears Automotive, Inc 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 Golden Gears Automotive, Inc 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 Golden Gears Automotive, Inc in Rockville, MD 20852. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

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 Golden Gears Automotive, Inc in Rockville, MD 20852.

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 Golden Gears Automotive, Inc, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 301-770-2230 or visit Golden Gears Automotive, Inc today.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Sam helped me with the transmission. I was hesitant if I should replace it as my car had 100,000 miles. He worked with me. Thank you-

reviewicon

Sam and his team are wonderful! He is honest, fair and will go out of his way to find the best solution to any issue your car may have. Sam is courteous and generous, and I highly recommend Golden Gears. I teach at a school nearby and we ALL take our cars to him. I just picked up my car from his spotless workshop, and Sam found a cosmetic flaw which he fixed on the spot, free of charge. Golden Gears is a treasure.

Sam is a very skilled mechanic who is good at diagnosing and repairing problems. He is also very trustworthy, and completes repairs promptly.

reviewicon

I usually choose a garage based on recommendations from friends, but took a chance and went to Golden Gears based on online reviews. The Maryland inspection went well and the price was very reasonable. The owner recommended that the tires be rotated, which I knew needed to be done as I had incorrectly moved the newer tires to the back of the car when I rotated them myself. Based on this experience, I trust this shop and plan to return for maintenance and repairs.

Fabulous experience. I think I've found a car repairman to go to for the rest of my life. Competent, kind, and fairly priced.
