Common Engine Problems

Nearly all engine problems can be categorized into four basic types:

  • Fuel mix problems
  • Compression issues
  • Spark issues
  • Starter problems

Fuel Mix Problems

A fuel mix problem means that the proper combination of air and fuel is not getting to the engine. This could mean that one or more of the following is happening:

  • Air filter needs to be replaced
  • Fuel injector is clogged
  • Fuel lines could be clogged
  • Bad fuel, or water in the fuel (from condensation)

Compression Issues

Compression must occur in order for the engine to function properly and for the gas and air mixture to ignite. One or more of these issues could be at hand:

  • Leak in the cylinders
  • Worn-out gaskets
  • Worn-out piston rings
  • Problem with air intake valve
  • Problem with exhaust valve

Spark Issues

The other component of a properly working combustion engine is the spark that ignites the air-fuel mixture. One or more of these things could be preventing a proper spark:

  • Worn-out spark plug
  • Worn-out wiring to spark plug
  • Timing belt is preventing the spark from occurring at the right time

Starter Issues

If your ignition is malfunctioning or your battery is dead, then you won’t even have a chance to see if your engine is working properly. It won’t turn over at all.

Other Engine Problems

There are a host of other problems that could prevent your engine from operating efficiently or operating at all. These include:

  • Overheating. This could be caused by a malfunctioning fan or fan belt or a lack of engine coolant due to an engine coolant leak.
  • Oil problems—using the wrong type of engine oil can have adverse effects on the engine. Also, faulty oil filters or simply dirty oil can cause a number of engine problems.
