How Christian Brothers Automotive Can Help

Your engine is a complex machine, and other components will break down over time. At Christian Brothers Automotive, our experienced technicians are skilled at solving any engine problems you may face. Our services encompass:

  • Ignition system
  • Ignition wires
  • Crank case
  • Fuel pump
  • Water pump
  • Sensors (such as an o2 sensor)

Pro Tip: The most common sign of an engine in need of service is an oil leak. If you notice oil leaking underneath your car, it’s best to bring it in for service immediately. Typically oil leaks are the result of neglected maintenance, as seals become hardened and dry and can no longer protect against fluid loss.

Your engine is truly a feat of manufacturing and is made of hundreds of high-temperature moving parts and electrical systems alongside complex mechanical components. It’s easy to pay no mind to your engine, but it is what allows you to get from point A to point B reliably–which is precisely why you shouldn’t ignore the upkeep and maintenance of your engine.
