Abbotts Auto Care: Silencing the Roar in Your Kia Sportage

Hello, fellow drivers! Today, we're here to tackle a common concern that many of us have faced - a deafening squeal from the engine of a Kia Sportage 2021 2.2L under acceleration. It's like your car is protesting every time you hit the gas pedal. But fear not, Abbotts Auto Care is here to emphasize the importance of regular servicing in ensuring a smooth ride.

Taming the Roaring Engine

Imagine you're behind the wheel of your trusty Kia Sportage, and every time you accelerate, the engine lets out a loud and annoying squeal. It's not exactly the symphony you want to hear while driving.

One of our customers experienced precisely this issue - a noisy engine under acceleration, and that's where our journey begins.

Listening to Your Car's Story

At Abbotts Auto Care, we believe in solving problems from the root, and that starts with listening to your car's story. We embarked on a road test to experience the engine noise first hand.

Upon investigation, we found the culprit - the serpentine belt and its tensioner. The tensioner was stuck and not functioning as it should, causing the belt to produce that unpleasant squeal.

Restoring Peace and Quiet

With the issue identified, our skilled technicians got to work. We replaced the tensioner and serpentine belt, ensuring the new components were of top quality. Then, it was time for another road test, and this time, the engine was purring like a contented kitten. Problem solved!

The Importance of Regular Servicing

This case highlights the significance of regular servicing. We're not being pushy; we're persuading you that servicing your vehicle can save you from engine troubles, just as it did for our customer.

At Abbotts Auto Care, we're your partners in keeping your car running smoothly. Trust us for all your car needs and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with regular servicing. With our expertise, you can ensure your engine runs quietly and efficiently every time you hit the gas pedal.
