Engine Sputter? | New Orleans Auto Care

If your car's engine is sputtering and you're looking for a New Orleans auto care expert to fix it, look no further than the New Orleans auto care professionals at Twin Tire.

It's Saturday, the day you've been looking forward to all week. You've been planning to take the kids to Scout Island Scream Park.  That is, you're going to go if your car cooperates. Recently, its performance has dropped, and it's begun sputtering.

Sounds like it might have been awhile since you had your oil filter changed. And because auto care technicians usually change the filter when they change the oil, it's probably also an indication that it's been awhile since your oil was changed.

If so, the solution to your engine sputtering is simple and quick to fix. But just because it's easy doesn't mean you can put it off. Especially as your engine is telling you it needs a new oil filter and oil. 

Auto.howstuffworks.com explains, "Your typical oil filter, perhaps the size of a coffee mug, performs a crucially important job for such a small package. Much like your own body's kidneys clean your blood, a car's oil filter scrubs automotive blood -- engine oil -- of impurities.

"Specks of dirt and metal shavings act like miniature sandblasters when they float suspended in engine oil. Their abrasive ways can especially wear down engine bearings, leading to low oil pressure.

"That, in turn, could lead to big-time engine damage. Over time, an oil filter gets so clogged with impurities that it no longer effectively cleans the oil -- dirty oil just keeps recirculating around the engine. In essence, the oil filter shields your engine from harmful floating garbage."

You really need to take a few minutes out of your day to stop at Twin Tire Auto Care to have the New Orleans auto care and auto repair technicians check your oil and oil filter.
