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.

    Excellent Service - It is hard to find a good mechanic that you can trust, but Bobby and his team have always taken care of us. I have six trucks that I take to him on a regular basis and they do a great job. Bobby does not know this, but I have "shopped" his prices a few times (just to keep him honest :-)). However, it was not necessary because he was always the lowest price. We really appreciate all that they do for us. 8 Years since my first review and I still think the world of this place. Great folks. Great service.

    I was at the Shell station beside the repair shop getting ready to put air in my tire. The owner of Roysons coming out of the store and walking back to his shop. He walked over to me and stopped me from putting money into the air machine. He told me to please swing into his shop and let him do it for free. He said he hated to see people spend their money on air. Then told me to have a blessed day after he checked my air. You don't see that too often these days. If you need an automotive facility in the Blythewood area, I encourage you to check them out. I know I will in the future.

    Three of us had a company car and when it dumped all of its coolant on I-77 N just past exit 27 , we were left on the side of the road. We had a colleague who was headed the same direction pick us up in another vehicle and take us to our meeting, but we really needed the car to be fixed by the next day for our trip back home. After we had it towed to Royston's Blythewood Auto, they expedited the repair for our silver Buick Lacrosse, and did what it took to get us back on the road the next day. Thank you very much for your friendly, quick, quality service!

    I just moved in this area and I must say that I'm impressed on the customer courtesy. This is the first shop I've ever been to that gives you a ride back home after dropping off vehicle. These people are very professional and I wouldn't mind making them my personal shop to go to.
