WHEN YOU NEED CAR ENGINE REPAIR TRUST FIRESTONE COMPLETE AUTO CARE.

OVER 500 MILLION VEHICLES SERVICED SINCE 1927.

Don't hesitate to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of engine problems. If you're experiencing engine noise, including engine knocking, tapping or clicking, or engine stalls, bring your car in and one of our Firestone Tire and Auto Service Professionals will determine what's going on under the hood. Keep your vehicle's engine performance and efficiency strong by taking care of engine problems right away.

ENGINE KNOCKING

If you're hearing engine noise like engine knocking or engine tapping, it can indicate that the vehicle is running low on oil. It can also mean that an engine part, such as a valve is wearing out. A whistling noise can indicate a cam shaft belt is misaligned or there is an intake leak. A squealing noise can be related to a loose fan belt. A grinding noise is probably coming from your brakes rather than your engine.

You can listen for the engine knocking sounds in the following scenarios:

  • Engine knocks when first started.
  • Engine knocks when cold.
  • Engine knocks when warm.
  • Engine knocks at idle.
  • Engine knocks when accelerating.
  • Engine knocks at high RPM.

ENGINE STALLS

Engine stalls can indicate an issue with a fuel pump, sensor or possibly an electrical system problem. It can also indicate you're running low on gas, your car is overheating, or that an engine component is worn out, such as a fuel injector or spark plug.

The most common type of engine stalls include:

  • Engine stalls when cold.
  • Engine stalls when hot.
  • Engine stalls when accelerating.
  • Engine stalls when put in drive.
  • Engine stalls when braking.
  • Engine stalls when the AC is on.

If you're experiencing engine knocking or your engine stalls frequently, bring your car into a Firestone Complete Auto Care store where our experienced Tire and Auto Service Professionals will run an engine diagnostics test. We're open seven days a week and no appointment is required to get engine repair help from your neighborhood Firestone Complete Auto Care store.
