How to Tell When Your Car Needs a Replacement Engine

Every car engine is designed slightly differently, but they all give similar warning signs when something is wrong: 

  • Jerky or bumpy running - Dead or misfiring cylinders often cause automobiles to feel jumpy and slightly out of control.
  • Smoke - Smoke comes in three colors: black, blue and white. Black smoke means there is too much gas or too little air in the engine. Blue indicates your engine is burning oil. White smoke is a sign of a damaged head gasket or cylinder head.
  • Loud noisesYour engine makes a ton of noises. Especially when it's beginning to fail. Loud, knocking noises can indicate a bearing has failed. Squealing noises could indicate a frayed belt. You may even hear popping, ticking or clicking.
