ENGINE MAINTENANCE

Engine maintenance is vital to keep your car or truck operating at peak performance. It also impacts the longevity of your vehicle's engine. Trust the experts at Mike Byer Auto and Truck Repair to help you protect your investment. Call us at 828-258-0548 or visit our shop in Asheville 28801.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

Fuel Injection
Fuel injection is a system for admitting fuel into an engine. Since 1990, fuel injectors have completely replaced carburetors as the primary means of getting gasoline into the engine. A fuel injector atomizes the fuel by forcibly pumping it through a small nozzle (under high pressure). Failure of the fuel injection system means poor performance and ultimately destroys the engine. Make sure your vehicle's fuel injection system is maintained properly. For all your fuel injection maintenance and replacement needs, call 828-258-0548 or visit Mike Byer Auto and Truck Repair today.

Ignition
An ignition system is a system for igniting (using an electric spark) a mixture of fuel and air in a gasoline engine. A properly working ignition system means a properly starting engine and high performance from your car. For all your ignition system maintenance and replacement needs, call or visit Mike Byer Auto and Truck Repair today.

Ignition Wires & Cables
Ignition cables also known as spark plug wires are an important part of your car's ignition system. They transfer the spark from the ignition coil to spark plugs that ignite the mixture of fuel and air. The mixture starts the engine. Over time, ignition wires and cables get weak and break down. This makes it impossible for the spark to reach the engine cylinders. This results in the engine misfiring. The car will eventually fail to start. If it does start, it will run poorly. Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires are: poor gas mileage, engine misfires, engine light is on, and engine may vibrate. If your car needs new ignition cables and wires, call or visit Mike Byer Auto and Truck Repair in Asheville, NC 28801. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

Spark Plugs
A spark plug delivers electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Spark plugs that haven't been changed for a long time can cause ignition problems. At Mike Byer Auto and Truck Repair, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 828-258-0548 or visit Mike Byer Auto and Truck Repair today.

Oil, Lube, and Filter
To keep running smoothly, your car highly relies on oil, lube, and oil filters. Oil helps in lubricating, cooling, and cleaning the internal engine components. With time, motor oil becomes contaminated. Your car needs an oil, lube, and filter change every three months (or 3,000 miles). When it is time for a lube, oil, or filter change, take your vehicle to Mike Byer Auto and Truck Repair in Asheville, NC 28801.

Check Engine Light
No one likes to see their car's "Check Engine" light come on. The light could mean a costly problem, like a bad catalytic converter, or it could be something minor, like a loose gas cap. At Mike Byer Auto and Truck Repair, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 828-258-0548 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Testimonials

  • This is the best Auto mechanic in Asheville hands down. Mike and his crew have worked on all my vehicles for almost a decade. Everything from oil changes to complete engine replacements. I have never had any problems, they always do a great job and finish the work in a timely manner. Finding a trust worthy Auto mechanic is not an easy task, Mike is the best I have ever worked with, his knowledge is vast which makes him one of the best at diagnosing problems.

  • I always buy new vehicles, so I rarely have mechanical issues with my cars. However, I typically order new tires for my cars online, and have gone to Mike Byer for years to have those installed on my cars. I also have my inspections done there, and as a matter of fact had new tires installed and an inspection done last week. I also know others who use Mike Byer, and have never heard of anyone having a bad experience. These guys are unfailingly polite, courteous, professional, and fair. Their pricing is the best in town, and I trust them (something that you value highly when dealing a mechanic, obviously). I would recommend them to anyone in the Asheville area who needs an auto mechanic.

  • I have used these folks twice now and each time they gave me clear reports of what they found and options for each including if/when/how to approach each. Their prices are great and things were done when promised. Great folks to work with!
    -Todd D.

  • I moved to the area 6 years ago and never thought I would find someone I trusted to take care of my car troubles. I'm so glad I found Mike Byer. Everyone is always very polite and respectful, in my experiences. Every service or repair I've had was completed in a timely manner and either at or under the estimated cost. They've come through in the clutch when I needed an oil change before making an emergency trip out of town and even checked my tire pressure. I show up without an appointment, having a tire that needed a patch and they handled it with grace. These folks treat you like a person and a member of a community, not like a dollar sign. This is also one of the few places that hasn't treated me differently based on my gender or what they assume I know about cars. I would highly recommend Mike Byer Auto for ALL of your automotive needs. Thanks guys, keep up the fantastic work!
    -Holly M.

  • An excellent example of a solid local and trusted shop. I've gone there several times and driven away feeling that what I asked for was done properly and at a reasonable cost. Reliability is worth a lot to me and I've not been let down.
    -Larry W.

  • Have been a customer of Mike's since 2008 and have had nothing but consistently successful experiences with him and his staff. In the automotive field, it's rare to find a trusted and highly experienced group of personnel who accurately troubleshoot the full variety of automotive issues, and who keep the customer's best interests a priority. His facility provides a personalized and comfortable atmosphere where the customer can feel confident in making a well informed purchasing decision. He and his associate, Sumpter, both have a way of reporting diagnostic results in a language that any customer can easily understand. In short, I would recommend anyone to Mike Byer Autoworks.
