How to tell if there’s a problem with your car engine

If there’s a problem with your car engine, your car could be giving you lots of obvious signs to let you know. We’ve come up with 5 top signs your car is giving you to tell you there’s an issue with your engine.


Warning Light

An immediate sign that there is a problem with your car engine is your engine warning light coming on. If you notice the warning light has come on, you should get a diagnostic service to determine what the issue is. If the light starts flashing, do not drive your car! A flashing warning light is a sign that the problem could be serious; get in touch with a professional to look into the problem.



If you’ve noticed that your car is frequently making knocking, spitting and popping sounds, it could be time to get your car engine looked at. Ignoring odd noises from your car could result in a problem becoming worse.


Bad Smell

Cars don’t have the most pleasant smell at the best of times, but if you notice an unusually foul smell coming from your car, it could be a sign that you have a problem with your engine. If this does occur, it’s best to get it looked at by a professional to ensure no further problems emerge.



If your car is producing unexpected smoke, there could be a problem with the engine, particularly if it is blue or white smoke. If you’re getting smoke appearing from your bonnet, your engine could be overheating. Get your car looked at immediately if you notice smoke.



Stalling can just be a driver’s error. However, if you’re noticing that your car is stalling a lot more than usual, particularly if you have an automatic vehicle, it could be a sign that there’s an issue with your car engine. If this is the case, get it looked at by a professional.
