Engine Oil Leak Mira MesaIf you suspect your vehicle may have an engine oil leak Mira Mesa, bring it into us here at Mira Mesa Automotive Repair, Inc. We have served the San Diego area for 25 years with expert, reliable, and affordable car maintenance and repair.

An engine oil leak is often indicated by a stain or puddle when your car is parked in Mira Mesa for a few hours. While these stains can be annoying and unsightly, they do give you the opportunity to bring your vehicle in before serious issues occur. Oil leaks can cause serious engine damage or even failure if not promptly addressed. If your oil light illuminates, immediately pull your vehicle to the side of the road (or the closest safe location), and call for a tow. Continuing to drive your vehicle in this condition is unsafe and can lead to major engine damage. Have your vehicle brought to a reliable repair facility like Mira Mesa Automotive for diagnosis and repair.

Oil leaks are often caused by worn, old, and degraded gaskets. Routine car maintenance can reduce the likelihood of leaks at gaskets. Over time, gaskets dry out and the material degrades, even if you do not drive the vehicle frequently. Gaskets should be replaced on a time interval schedule for lower mileage vehicles, as gaskets do not just deteriorate when used. Do not wait for an oil leak to cause problems bring your vehicle to Mira Mesa for manufacturer recommended maintenance. You will save time, money, and stress over the long run by having maintenance performed on schedule.

Inconvenience is a major reason that vehicle owners do not perform all recommended maintenance. Be sure to stop by for an oil change.
