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 Skinner's Automotive to help you protect your investment. Call us at 610-833-1200 or visit our shop in Crum Lynne 19022.

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 610-833-1200 or visit Skinner'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 Skinner'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 Skinner's Automotive in Crum Lynne, PA 19022. 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 Skinner's Automotive, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 610-833-1200 or visit Skinner's Automotive today.

  • Totally lost my brakes. Called John Skinner. Got it right in. Brake line had rusted through. Skinner's able crew replaced the line...not easy on a 22 year old Honda, and back on the road again in no time. Now that is service!
    -George M.

  • I dropped my car off in the morning before work. Papers, pens and envelopes available to fill out a request and drop my key off since I was there prior to them opening. I requested that my car be done by lunch time if possible. Sure enough, my inspection was complete by the time I was done with lunch. Check out/paying was very quick and easy. Every one was extremely friendly. Overall I was very happy with my experience and would definitely return to Skinner's in the future.

  • I could go to several service/repair shops between my home and Crum Lynne, but I chose Skinner's. Good people, good service, fair prices, always go the extra step. Just added a new vehicle to our family's fleet and that vehicle will go there as well. John and Melissa appreciate my business, and I in turn appreciate their friendship as well as their workmanship.
    -Stuart D.

  • I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my recent experience with Skinner's. I brought my car in for inspection and emissions about 9:00 am on a weekday. They asked if I needed a ride home (which at the dealer's they never asked me)! I was quite impressed with this. I told John some of my concerns and he said he'd check it out. He called me about 12:00 pm and told me what he found. It was a good amount of work, but I love my CR-V, so it was worth it. John also asked me if I wanted my headlights cleaned (the dealer said he'd need to replace the entire headlight to fix the oxidation problem so common in vehicles these days). I took John up on his offer and was WOWED when I picked the car up about 5:00 pm. What a huge difference - he has some magic potion, I guess. I met with Melissa to pay for the work and found out that we had graduated in the same class! What a small world. From now on, I won't go anywhere but Skinner's for all my vehicles. Great job!!!

  • Went in for an inspection and oil change and John's crew found a broken motor mount and bad master cylinder. Everything fixed the same day. Now that is service! One very happy customer.
