The engines in most vehicles currently on the road are substantially superior in design and durability compared to their predecessors built in the 90s or earlier. The main components, including the block (base of the engine) and the head (top of the engine) should last the entire life of the vehicle if the surrounding components are properly maintained.
At Honest-1 Auto Care McKinney, our expert service advisors and technicians can assist you to properly maintain or repair your vehicle’s engine and related components with the following services:
Check Engine Light
Your vehicle’s engine includes numerous sensors connected to the vehicle’s internal computer that consistently monitor performance. If your “check engine light” comes on, it indicates that there is a problem in one of the sub-systems that is being monitored. At Honest-1, we have the necessary tools and expertise to perform diagnostics that allow us to determine the underlying issue(s) and provide you with recommendations to correct the problem.

At Honest-1 Auto Care McKinney, ask our expert service advisors to work with you to develop a comprehensive plan for properly maintaining your vehicle. This is the best possible approach for minimizing your long- term cost of ownership.
The engines in today’s vehicles are designed to operate at high temperatures. To work properly, however, the heat that is naturally generated must be consistently dissipated to avoid engine failure. That is the job of your vehicle’s engine cooling system which is composed of the following key components:
- Cooling System Flush
- Cooling System Hoses / Clamps
- Serpentine Belt
- Water Pump
- Radiator Fan
Key warning signs of potential issues with your vehicle’s engine cooling system include the high-temperature indicator on your dashboard display or if you notice excessive water/coolant underneath your vehicle. If either of these situations occurs, please contact us as soon as possible to discuss your options with one of our expert service advisors since the extended operation of your vehicle without proper cooling can lead to catastrophic engine failure.
