ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Mitch Smith Auto Service to help you protect your investment. Call us at 765-640-0237 or visit our shop in Anderson 46011.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Mitch Smith Auto Service to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 765-640-0237 or visit Mitch Smith Auto Service today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Mitch Smith Auto Service today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Mitch Smith Auto Service in Anderson, IN 46011. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Mitch Smith Auto Service, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 765-640-0237 or visit Mitch Smith Auto Service today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Mitch Smith Auto Service in Anderson, IN 46011.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Mitch Smith Auto Service, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 765-640-0237 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Wow! These guys are great! I bought a street rod on line with all kinds of things to fix and finish. They got right on it and are doing a top notch job. They are so friendly I feel like I've known them all my life. They are always ready to show me their progress and include me in the process. I really appreciate that as I'm not able to do the work myself. I feel confident that when it's finished it will be the best work at the best price around, and I've made some good friends in the auto service business.

Mitch Smith always services my RV. He and his staff are very friendly and Always go above and beyond to make sure that we are safe on the road.


-Becky T.

We have always received excellent service @ Mitch Smith's. They have completed work on our vehicles (over the last couple years) beyond normal oil changes and maintenance. Some of these services included transmission replacement, brake work, and recently, a power window repair. In every case, the proposed services were explained in detail, with an accurate estimate of cost. After the work was done, we have always been satisfied. It is such a rare pleasure to be able to drop a vehicle off for service with complete confidence that the work will be done not only quickly but also accurately. Everyone we have dealt with @ Mitch Smith's has been friendly & respectful of our needs. This is exactly the way all businesses in America should treat their customers.


-G. User

You guys are really the only people I trust with my vehicles. Prices may or may not be cheaper other places, but either way I choose Mitch Smith!!


-Nick R.

I really liked their attention to the customers needs and the little things they did while my vehicles have been in for repair. Such as vacuum the floor board or painting the calipers.
