Additional Services We Offer



Oil Changes

One of the simplest ways to assess your engine's condition is by examining the oil during an oil change. Engine oil circulates throughout your engine, providing insights into its overall health. Ideally, we want your oil to emerge darker than when it was added, with consistent viscosity and no solid particles.

The presence of solid particles is a significant concern, as it indicates internal engine components, such as seals or other parts, may be deteriorating. Engines are finely balanced mechanisms with minimal clearance for moving parts, making any solid particles within the engine a potential source of rapid and extensive damage. At KG Performance and Auto Repair, we conduct expert oil analysis to ensure your engine's internals are functioning optimally.

Engine Coolant Check

Another essential factor in preventing potential engine distress is engine coolant fluid, which helps maintain the correct operating temperature. Like any machine, your engine has specific temperature limits at which it operates optimally. Exceeding these limits can lead to various issues, including radiator failure.

Overheating can cause the engine's cooling water to heat up and pressurize the radiator beyond safe levels. This results in a scalding water spray. These hazardous situations can be avoided by using the proper engine coolants.

Filters

For your engine to function efficiently, your car needs the ingredients for combustion to be delivered in the purest form possible. A number of filters within your engine help maintain cleanliness. Our comprehensive engine maintenance includes monitoring your air, oil, and fuel filters, replacing them as needed to ensure your vehicle operates at peak efficiency.

Ignition Wires & Cables

Ignition cables, also known as spark plug wires, play a crucial role in your car's ignition system by transmitting the spark from the ignition coil to the spark plugs. Weak or deteriorated ignition wires and cables can disrupt the spark's flow to the engine cylinders, resulting in engine misfires and potential starting issues.

Common symptoms of faulty ignition cables and wires include poor gas mileage, engine misfires, illuminated engine warning lights, and engine vibration. If your vehicle requires new ignition cables and wires, contact or visit KG Performance and Auto Repair in Camarillo, CA. Our experienced mechanics can replace your wires and cables promptly.

Spark Plugs

Spark plugs play a crucial role by delivering an electric current to the combustion chamber from the ignition system. Aged or neglected spark plugs can result in ignition problems. Our automotive experts can inspect and replace your spark plugs as needed.

Whether you require basic oil service or more extensive engine repairs, contact KG Performance and Auto Repair at 805-482-7074 to explore how we can help you quickly get your engine back to functioning and maximum capacity.

Authorized Jasper Dealer

Revive Your Vehicle with JASPER. Whether it's that strange oil slick in your driveway or the weird noises coming from under your hood, these issues don't have to signal an impending car payment. Instead, rely on the trusted professionals at KG Performance and Auto Repair to install a completely remanufactured JASPER gas or diesel engine, transmission, or differential, swiftly getting you back on the road.

Cylinder Head Repair

The cylinder head resides at the closed end of a cylinder within your car's engine block. It sits atop the cylinder block, sealing the upper part of the cylinder and forming the combustion chamber. Responsible for managing airflow in and out of the engine, the cylinder head's primary role is to ensure proper cylinder sealing. Inadequate compression can result in challenging driving conditions. If you require cylinder head inspection and repair, connect with our specialists in cylinder head repair and reconditioning.

Engine Replacement

Engines convert energy into essential mechanical motion, propelling your vehicle forward. Despite their general reliability, car engines can succumb to damage and breakdowns. In such instances, don't fret; take prompt action. Deliver your vehicle to a trusted mechanic for a reliable engine replacement.

Engine Repair FAQs



Is It Okay to Drive With the Engine Light On?

The short answer, "No." The longer explanation is the light may indicate a serious engine failure and continuing to use your car as if nothing is wrong could result in a very expensive engine repair bill. The check engine light means you should stop driving and have your car looked at as soon as possible by a professional at KG Performance and Auto Repair in Camarillo.

What Could Cause a Check Engine Light to Come On?

Come by KG Performance and Auto Repair and we can diagnose the reasons for a check engine light turning on. It can range from something serious like a faulty catalytic converter or potential engine failure to something simple like a loose gas cap or the need for a simple 50K or 100K mile manufacturer maintenance check.

How Long Should an Engine Repair Take?

The time it takes to rebuild an engine varies greatly, ranging from a few days for simple jobs to several weeks for intricate work. Regardless of the timeframe, a thorough understanding of the engine's components and strict adherence to the manufacturer's guidelines are essential for a successful and long-lasting rebuild.

What Is the Most Common Problem With My Check Engine Light?

A loose gas cap is the most common cause of a check engine light coming on. But the best method to determine why the check engine light is on is to have a professional at KG Performance and Auto Repair read the diagnostic code in the car's internal OBD computer.

What Does an Intermittent Flashing Check Engine Light Mean?

Flashing check engine lights warn of severe situations requiring immediate attention. Get your vehicle to an auto repair shop as quickly as possible or get it safely parked and call a tow truck to take it to your preferred auto repair shop.

What Does Engine Repair Include?

Addressing minor issues like head gasket leaks, worn belts, or oil pan seals can prevent extensive damage and costly engine replacements down the line. Timely repairs are key to minimizing the severity of engine problems.

How Do You Know When a Spark Plug Needs to Be Replaced?

The most common sign a spark plug needs replacing is the feeling that the car's engine is hesitating when accelerating, but other signs may include misfiring at start up, rough idling, sluggish acceleration, declining fuel economy and engine knocking.

When Can an Engine Not Be Repaired?

Vehicles experiencing persistent overheating, particularly those with known engine issues, might be facing serious trouble. This could indicate anything from minor leaks to a cracked engine block. Unfortunately, cracks in the block are a critical failure point and necessitate complete engine replacement due to the unrepairable nature of such damage.

What People Say About Us

  • reviewicon


    My 2008 Volvo had several issues come up as it hit the 150K mile point. A/C system, radiator, CV boot, and brake control module all needed repair or replacement. KG took care of all of those over the past two months and everything has been performing perfectly since. No pressure or strong-arming tactics from KG.... they let you know what you car needs and leave the decision to you. Their shop is one of the neatest and cleanest I have seen, and that is always a good sign! They are also very up to speed with using internet for customer notifications, detailed information on the work done, and online bill payment. A great shop.

    KG Performance and Auto Repair was recommended to me by a friend...I just needed an oil change but I was leery because in the past I've had other Mechanics tell me after an oil change that this that and another thing needed to be repaired ASAP. Turned out they were trying to sell me unnecessary repairs....Not these great guys at KG. Floyd was very professional and answered all my questions and he didn't make me feel dumb. When I picked up my car Floyd did mention to me about a couple of things that would need attention down the road but nothing dire at the moment. Great guy......So Ladies, if you need some work done on your car but you're not sure where to go because you're worried about being taken advantage of..... Worry no more, KG is the place to go ..Thanks again KG
