When they visit our Honda service center, many drivers ask us how they can tell when their engine needs some attention. Because we’re asked about this so often, we thought it would be a good idea to share some of the signs that indicate your engine needs work.

Here are some of the signs that signal your engine needs attention:

  • Your Check Engine Light Is Illuminated: If your check engine light is on, it’s a definite sign that your engine needs some work. Your check engine light being on might mean your engine is experiencing a minor issue or a big problem. To figure out what the problem is, you’ll need to bring your car into our Honda service center for a diagnostic test.
  • You Hear Tapping or Popping: If your engine sounds like it’s tapping or popping, you need to hurry over to our Honda service center. These sounds are often the result of early gas ignition occurring in your cylinders’ combustion chamber, which can cause extensive damage to your engine.
  • Your Car Jerks, Surges, or Stalls: If your automobile does any of these things, your engine needs help. Any number of engine problems might be causing your car to exhibit these behaviors and it’s important for you to have the issue fixed in a timely manner.
