Cylinder head repair in Phoenix, AZ is not uncommon - we are simply hard on vehicles due to the heat. Cylinder heads in many newer vehicles are aluminum, and aluminum warps or melts at temperatures less than steel. Keep driving an overheated car and the cylinder heads will eventually begin to warp. Warped heads conflicts with the combustion process as the heads do not perform as well when they are warped. The signs of having warped cylinder heads include decreased engine power, misfiring, oil leaks or excessive oil burning.
Internal combustion engines are inefficient because they produce a large amount of heat in order to get going. The heat is produced within the engine by friction and combustion, and can reach as high as 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit in the chamber - add Phoenix temperatures, and cylinder head repair can be better understood.
