Engine is backfiring Inspection Service & Cost

Engine backfires are one of the most obvious symptoms of car trouble, and they are annoying and potentially damaging to the car’s exhaust and catalytic mechanisms.

Backfires occur for various reasons, and may be accompanied by a Check Engine light.

Common reasons for this to happen:

  • When moisture or resistance in the car’s electronic ignition system allows a crossover generation of current to the wrong cylinder.

  • A lean mixture caused by either an engine vacuum leak or low fuel-pump pressure.

  • A faulty air injection check valve (part of the car’s emission control system) allows too much air into the car’s exhaust system.

  • A failed air intake boot can cause a backfire by altering the feedback voltage to the PCM.

  • Faulty ignition components or spark plugs may also cause backfires if the ignition timing drifts off or the plugs fire intermittently.

  • An exhaust leak such as broken welds or other small holes can take in cool air during deceleration and cause a popping or backfiring in the exhaust system.

What to expect:

A top-rated mobile mechanic will come to your home or office to determine the source and cause of the engine backfiring, and will then provide a detailed inspection report that includes the scope and cost of the necessary repairs.

How important is this service?

Backfires generate sudden high-pressure events in the exhaust system, and can do serious damage if left unchecked. Have the car inspected by a professional mechanic as soon as possible.

Zachary

Zachary is an excellent mechanic! He arrived a little early for our appointment. He carefully evaluated and diagnosed the problems with my GMC Envoy overheating - It needs a new serpentine belt and drive belt tensioner. We had two previous mechanics who could not figure this out, so we really appreciate Zachary. He answered all our questions completely and made sure we understood everything. We're looking forward to working with Zachary again, and highly recommend him to everyone!

Brandon

Brandon came out to diagnose my car issues. He was friendly and extremely helpful. Although he wasn't able to have his company fix the car for liability reasons he actually found someone that could do the work for me. So, even after leaving my residence, he was still working to help me in any possible way he could to resolve my car issues.
