    I like how you mentioned that poor gas mileage, strange noises, loud sounds, stalling, and strange odor are signs of an underperforming engine. My brother is thinking of looking for engine repair services because he noticed last week while driving down the highway that white smoke suddenly started to come out of his exhaust. I think it’s a good idea for my brother to consider all of his options when choosing a reputable professional to help fix his car so that it works as best as possible.
