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 Marque Motors to help you protect your investment. Call us at 503-293-5386 or visit our shop in Portland 97219.

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 Marque Motors, we can pull the code and diagnose the problem for you. Give us a call at 503-293-5386 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 Marque Motors 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 503-293-5386 or visit Marque Motors 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 Marque Motors 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 Marque Motors in Portland, OR 97219. 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 Marque Motors in Portland, OR 97219.

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 Marque Motors, we have automotive experts who will check and replace your spark plugs. For all your spark plug repair or replacement needs, call 503-293-5386 or visit Marque Motors today.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Marque Motors was recommended to me by several of my 'German Sport car owning' friends. Kurt was very generous with his time to help me understand the differences of the cars that I am researching to purchase (Porsche vs. Audi). He gave me some excellent pointers that I would not have thought about before pursuing a purchase. I will definitely bring the car to Marque for a full pre-purchase inspection when I identify it, and any service and repairs as well. I believe they are an excellent resource!


-Jennifer C.

I've taken a number of Porsches to Kurt over the past 15 years or so. They do careful work, give great advice, and have been very reasonably priced.


-Michael C.

I was recommended Marque Motors for a pre-purchase inspection on a Porsche Boxster in Portland. I don't live in the area and hadn't actually seen the car myself, so the inspection was really important to me. Kurt was great and gave me all the information I needed to make an informed purchase, taking time to explain the report details over the phone and answering any questions I had. The inspection also cost me less than I was originally quoted which was nice! If I was anywhere near the area, I'd definitely be going back to Marque Motors for any work my car might need in the future.


-David H.

We have been doing business with Marque Motors for a long time, this is a quality shop. All my customers that drive Porsches, BMWs, and Audis take their cars here and have nothing but GREAT things to say about their work. Kurt has a very good reputation and his staff knows what they are doing. Marque Motors is a full-service repair facility specializing in Porsche, Audi, BMW, MINI and Volkswagen. NOTE: SERVICE & REPAIR FACILITY SPECIALIST ! Service and Repair Shops that have been around a while are getting harder to find, this is one of the good ones. We are in the industry and my customers say this is a great shop, and I agree.


-Brooks Performance

Kurt and crew always have done what they say, when and for the amount agreed to. They serviced our 1999 Audi A4 for the last 13 years, and I would use them again, and recommend them highly.


-David N.

Marque Motors was recommended to me about 10 years ago. Nothing but the highest praise was commented about his business. I have owned several Porsches and I would not trust anyone else with these vehicles. The quality of his work is excellent and prices are extremely fair.


-Dr. David V.

I've been using Marque Motors for Porsche service for the last 15 years. My '84 Carrera was serviced by them for routine maintenance when required. I recently had a "pre-buyers" inspection done for a 997.2. I had a few questions about my car so he brought me into the shop while the car was on the lift and James (the tech working on my car) gave me a good tour of the vehicle. I have always been treated very well at Marque Motors. I always have a clear understanding of what I want and what the car requires when I have maintenance work done here. I feel fortunate to have found a great local shop and a local small business I can support with confidence and pride. My kind of people! Thanks guys!


-M. P.

I have been going to Marque Motors for 10 years and I wouldn't trust my cars to anyone else. The best mechanics and best customer service. Kurt and his team are the absolute best!


-Teresa L.

Took a BMW in for a pre-purchase inspection (which they let me setup super quick). They were great, prompt with the turn around time and gave me all the information I needed. I will be going in shortly to get a couple of things sorted out with the new car!


-Jordan R.

Brought in a Porsche Cayenne S for some basic maintenance, good friendly people working there, reasonable price, and good work. Thanks!


-Alekseyo

They were able to accommodate my schedule and get me in in a timely manner. The staff were friendly. Service was timely and the price was great. You can tell they care about their customers and aren't out just to make money. I even got a follow-up call a few weeks later.


-Kristen A.

Honest, reliable. It seems to be a rarity these days to find a shop that doesn't try to badger you into unnecessary repairs. This shop tells you what's going on and when, if, and how much it's gonna take to keep you on the road.


-Sherri W.

I took my car here for the DEQ certification. They were extremely efficient, quick and very helpful - even providing step-by-step guide for the on-line renewal process. Makes me wish I had a Porsche or Audi to bring to them for upkeep!! Highly recommend!!


-Molly D.

Went to the shop for a DEQ certification. They were fast, friendly, and did the test for no charge. Said they do it for free as a service for their customers, even though I have a Subaru and they don't service Subarus. Almost makes we want to go buy an Audi or Porsche so I can be a customer here.


-Brian S.

Got our DEQ testing done in 5 minutes. Also explained step by step what to do next. All at no cost!


-Chayim M.

Thanks for the quick service and hospitality!


-Matti D.

So I buy a 928 in San Francisco and drive all the way to Portland before it breaks down. I have it towed to Marque after getting a recommendation from a PCA member. Despite never meeting me...Marque took it in like it was family, fixed the multiple problems and sent me on my way. I made it to Redmond and it broke down again. (It is, after all, a 928.) Though it is unknown what caused one of the 'fixes' to not 'take' and it is not clear in any way that it was any fault of Marque (!)...they paid (in full!) for the subsequent repair at a Bend Porsche specialist without my asking. I will forever be indebted to Marque and hope to again do business with them. They have my highest esteem!


-Quincy D.

Carl and his team are great. They've taken great care of my VW Golf and are generous with their time explaining options and their diagnoses when my car needed service.


-David S.

I went here for DEQ Too! services only because they were close. Boy was I happy with the service. I didn't need an appointment. It seemed a little busy when I walked in but I was greeted immediately and then they took care of everything for me. I barely had time to open my email on my phone! They walked me through what I have to do from here to get my stickers. All in all an incredible service and so much better than driving across town to sit in a long line.


-Mary Anne C.

This is the best place to get your DEQ Too Vehicle Emissions Test - great service and very friendly!


-Chuck D.

Stopped in for DEQToo service. Great people, fast service. Really impressed with their operation!


-Al L.

I had a DEQ emissions test done at Marque Motors and the service was prompt and efficient. The price was great! I strongly recommend Marque.


-Ted W.

Great place to get an emissions test. Friendly people, a very good experience.


-Omi W.

Kind and thoughtful staff. Helped my wife take care of her DEQ emissions test at no charge. Would absolutely use their services in the future!


-John J.

I went there today for a DEQ test, they were nice, competent and fast (and they have a cute dog in the office!)


-Amy M.

DEQ Testing Here! Very happy with quick and friendly service from Marque Motors - definitely recommend. Friendly dog Niko to boot!


-Brandon L.

Great service, can't recommend enough! Came in to have my car checked for DEQ, was in and out in 5 minutes. They didn't charge me, and I even got to pet their cute shop dog. Satisfied customer.


-Sonny R.

DEQ Service was quick & easy! Friendly Staff!


-Orlando R.

Marque Motors is fantastic, did a DEQ on my Prius, in and out in 5 minutes and No Charge!
