What Makes Your Car Run Rough?

There are a lot of components that may cause your car to run poorly. It can be something simple or something deep within your engine. The heart of every car and truck is the engine. 


The engine is what everything else in your car depends on to get from point A to point B. It is what makes the power to turn your wheels and send you down the road. Engine performance is measured by horsepower and torque. 


Horsepower measures how quickly power is created, and torque measures how much power is made. And no, one horsepower is not equal to one horse. 


Some people purchase their car based on those two performance numbers and usually enjoy their vehicle for more than just a mode of transportation. But even if you don’t care about the performance of your engine, you still need it to run properly; that’s why maintenance is important. 


Oil, air, and fuel filters, along with fluid changes, are vital to keeping your engine running for many miles to come. Beyond that, the spark plugs, ignition coils, and spark plug wires are also items that need to be replaced throughout the lifetime of your car or truck.


Different engine types require different things of course, but that covers the basics. Inside the engine there are quite a few moving parts that we won’t get into. If something internally fails it can be a pretty serious problem.
