Just like any other machine, a car is also prone to trouble from time to time if not properly maintained. Most often, car owners are unable to detect potential issues and end up paying more for repairs.


Carcility, the car repair and car service centre in Dubai, offers various car service packages, including minor car servicesmajor car services, oil services, and specialised ones such as detailing services.


Here are some of the common car problems encountered by owners:


 Starting Trouble: If your car doesn’t start when you turn on the ignition or requires repeated cranking, it may be a sign of low voltage in the battery. If the battery has completely discharged, it must be replaced. Technicians check the terminals, connections, and voltage to determine whether the battery can be charged or needs replacement. A blown fuse or low alternator output can also cause problems with starting the engine. When the spark plug misfires, it can reduce overall fuel efficiency as well as the ability to start the car’s engine.


Sputtering of the Engine: Jerking, shaking, or vibration in the car may be caused by a variety of factors, including a clogged fuel filter, a malfunctioning fuel pump, or contaminated fuel. Air intake issues can also cause engine sputtering. Vacuum leaks or a faulty mass airflow sensor may be causing trouble.


Shaky Steering Wheel: Your car will run smoothly only if the wheels and tyres are in perfect condition. Wheel balancing and alignment can prevent tyre vibrations and wobbling.


Braking Issues: Brakes play a crucial role in ensuring the safety of the vehicle. If braking is insufficient or there is a grinding noise, the brakes need to be inspected. The formation of air bubbles, worn-out brake pads, and rotors can cause trouble.


Carcility, the car repair and car service in Dubai, provides various specialised car repairs such as battery, brake service, clutch, engine, steering, suspension, and gearbox repairs.


Overheating: Overheating of the engine may be caused by a malfunctioning thermostat, radiator, or water pump. Coolant levels should be checked regularly, as should the hoses and fans.


Oil Consumption: If oil consumption is higher than normal, it may be due to leaks. Worn piston rings, valve seals, or PCV system issues may cause such problems, which can lead to lower engine performance.


The warning indicators on the dashboard provide clues about the health of the car, so book your car for service if such indicators light up.
