Misfire | Wichita Auto Repair

Misfire | Wichita Auto Repair

If your car is spewing black smoke from the tail pipe, you need to see the Wichita auto repair specialists at Tracy’s Automotive.

You were taking the kids home after a visit to Exploration Place when you glanced in your rear view mirror and noticed that black smoke was coming out of your car’s exhaust. You’re not sure why that is happening or how serious a problem that is.

It’s likely a sign that your engine is misfiring and it’s an indication that something is wrong with your engine and you should get it checked out sooner rather than later.

“Misfires are taxing on your car’s engine. Multiple misfires can put a mechanical strain on various engine components, potentially leading to other issues later down the road,jdpower.com says.

Misfires can have several causes ranging from malfunctioning spark plugs to clogged fuel filters to mechanical problems with the car’s timing belt, valve train, or vacuum lines.

Jdpower.com notes that you can drive a car that has misfired, but it’s unwise: ” Instead, you should look to have your car inspected as soon as possible. If you experience an engine misfire while you are on the freeway and/or surrounded by other cars, it is best to slowly and carefully get to safety first and try to cruise your vehicle to the side of the road.

“However, if your engine has misfired in the past and you aren’t currently driving it, you should avoid driving the vehicle until you have identified and fixed the root problem. While it may be inconvenient, it’s far better than having your engine suddenly quit or suffer catastrophic damage because of repeated misfires while on the road.”
