Whether you drive a BMW or a MINI Cooper, it is important to keep up with the maintenance to ensure that it continues to operate at maximum performance. Even when you follow the factory recommended services like regular oil changes, your vehicle will still suffer from high mileage and general wear and tear.
Signs of Engine Trouble
- Loud Knocking Noises – If you hear a knocking noise coming from under the hood of your BMW or MINI, get your vehicle to a professional mechanic as soon as possible. This noise could be related to worn out engine bearings which are the moving parts of the engine. When these parts go bad by lack of oil or just from high mileage, you will want to get them replaced immediately to avoid a colossal engine failure.
- The Check Engine Light Is Glowing – The Check Engine Light is your warning sign that something is wrong with your car. It usually refers to the actual engine but can be related to other things in the car. It is a good idea to have your car inspected by our trained technicians. They will be able to diagnose the issue with state-of-the-art technology so you will know exactly why your check engine light is on.
- Your Oil Has Metal Flakes – Even though you will not be able to notice metal shavings in your oil, your mechanic should inspect your old oil for metal. If found, it is a sure sign that your car’s engine needs repair to avoid any further damage. Make sure you are using a reliable repair shop like MMS Autosport that can repair any issue your engine is experiencing.
- Reduction In Performance – Do you feel like your vehicle is just not performing like it should when you press the gas pedal? Your BMW or MINI could be suffering from a decreased fuel efficiency. If this is the case, you need to have your import car checked out. It could be a simple fix such as a damaged sensor to a head gasket that is blown. Whatever the case may be, you can trust your car to the expert team at MMS Autosport.
