How do I know when my car needs a tune up?
You should always follow the manufactures service intervals when possible but generally a sign that your vehicle needs a tune up is having your fuel mileage decrease . An additional sign is a vehicle that idles rough or sputters when accelerating. Seeing a check engine light is usually a good time to get your vehicle inspected, especially if it hasn’t had a service in a while.
Why do my brakes squeak? What is a Brake Job?
Squeaky brakes happen for many reasons however continuous squeaking and grinding sounds usually mean that it’s time for new brake pads and shoes. Brake parts that are worn out will equate to longer stopping distances, which is unsafe for obvious reasons. In extreme circumstances, brake rotors that are too thin may even become over-stressed and break under hard breaking.
A brake job consists of replacing any worn parts in order to restore the vehicle’s braking performance to standard.
A proper brake inspection includes the inspection of the brake lining, brake rotors and drums, brake calipers, caliper hoses, lines, and master cylinder. Any hoses that are found to be age cracked, swollen, or leaking must be replaced to prevent near failure.
Lastly, old brake fluid should always be replaced with fresh fluid as it can be contamination with water which can corrode brake lines and decrease braking capacity.
Why is my check engine light on?
The check engine light is one of the most vital tell tales to maintain a properly functioning vehicle. It alerts the driver of an issue that the vehicle currently has via the vehicle’s on-board diagnostic system.
When the check engine light illuminates, it means that a system in your vehicle such as ignition, fuel injection, or emission control, is not operating efficiently.
When you experience a check engine light, minimize driving at high speeds, and drive to your closest auto repair shop to get your vehicle scanned.
Ignoring your check engine light could cause severe engine damage if left untreated for long enough.
Not every cause for a check engine light will damage the vehicle is left untreated however the possibility is not worth the risk of postponing a vehicle scan appointment.
