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 Royson's Automotive to help you protect your investment. Call us or visit our shop in Blythewood, Chapin or Columbia.

These are some of the engine maintenance services we offer.

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 Royson's Automotive, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 803-738-8050 or stop by the shop for our expert assistance.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system

You can count on the experts at Royson's Automotive to help your diesel engine last a long time.

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 803-738-8050 or visit Royson's Automotive 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 Royson's Automotive 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 Royson's Automotive in Columbia, SC 29204. Here, you will have the wires and cables changed by a top-rated mechanic.

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 Royson's Automotive in Columbia, SC 29204.

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 Royson's Automotive, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 803-738-8050 or visit Royson's Automotive today.

  • Had an appointment to drop my car off for an oil change and pick it up four hours later. After dropping it off, I went to pick it up four hours later and they hadn't even started on it. As I stood there, girl working at the desk clearly realized she had forgotten all about it. She offered some lame lie about why it wasn't ready and why it wasn't her fault, but ultimately said "I'm sorry, that's my bad." Then, in what must've been her attempt to correct the situation and make things right, she said "if you want to bring it back tomorrow, we can get you in." That's where the level of customer service is at this place right now. It used to be incredibly professional, but they have got the WRONG people working there at the moment. UPDATE: The owner of Royson's place called me shortly after I left. He was extremely apologetic and even offered to come pick my car up to take it to get an oil change. I didn't take him up on the offer but was blown away by the gesture. He went out of his way to make the situation right, and I extremely appreciated it. Changed this rating to five stars based on that call. I've always liked this place and will continue to go there.
