Your braking system has three components that typically need routine service: brake pads, brake discs, and brake fluid.
You probably know that you need to replace the pads periodically, and you may know that your discs will eventually wear down, but did you know that your fluid also needs occasional flushes? Although brake fluid doesn't "wear out," it can become contaminated through normal wear or become burnt due to overuse.
The tire and wheel assembly of a car can lead to a driver causing an accident if any of the parts are not in a good condition. For example, if the tires are worn out and old, driving a vehicle is unsafe due to the risks of getting into an accident that is involved. Tires are designed to keep a vehicle in contact with the road to prevent sliding, especially when the roads are wet from rainwater or snow.
Your vehicle most likely has a temperature gauge to tell you if your engine is running too hot, but what about your transmission? This critical component also needs to remain within a relatively tight temperature range, and overheating can cause drivability symptoms and severe damage. Recognizing the signs of an overheating transmission can help you keep your car running smoothly.
However, not every manufacturer makes it easy to know when there's a problem.
For most car owners, the inner workings of the transmission are beyond their usual understanding. In fact, many don't even recognize the signs that they need transmission service until they face complete transmission failure, nor do they know what to do when their transmission starts giving them trouble. For example, do you know what to do if your transmission won't go into gear? Here are some of the things that you should know about dealing with a transmission that won't go into gear.
When you drive your car, the tires take a lot of abuse, such as driving over pebbles on the road or scrapping up against a curb when you make a sharp turn. Luckily, the tread is able to withstand a lot, especially when you make sure that the tires' air pressure is maintained.
However, if the air pressure in the tires is not at the recommended level, the tread on the tires will let you know.
