With the harsh months of winter out of the way and with spring in full bloom, it’s time to think about automotive service. There’s nothing worse than an unexpected emergency roadside delay for mechanical problems to spoil a great vacation. One of the best ways to prevent this from happening is to have your car issues diagnosed correctly. When a problem is diagnosed properly, it rules out issues that are not the problem, and provides your auto mechanic with information to recommend the appropriate automotive service. It will also give you peace of mind, knowing that when you are ready to begin that family vacation, so will your car!
During a routine automotive service, the following 7 problem areas typically indicate an automotive repair is needed. Keep a watch out and take care of these problems promptly to avoid an urgent, costly and extensive automotive repair. This will keep your planned vacation on course!
- no-start problems (battery, starter, alternator, fuel filter, etc)
- brake problems (pads, drums, rotors, calipers)
- suspension issues (shocks, axles, alignment, balancing)
- “rattles, ticks, grind, and crunches” (strange sounds when stopping, starting, or just driving)
- warning lights (check engine light blinks, or stays on)
- transmission (engine repairs)
- Electrical system (spark plugs, combustion)
If you are frustrated and tired of paying for automotive repairs that really aren’t necessary, here’s a tip to remember; observe what you see, hear, and feel. Jot down notes so that you can relay the symptoms to your mechanic in precise and descriptive terms during an automotive service. Hopefully, this simple tip will not only help save you time, money, and stress, it will ensure that you will receive the appropriate automotive repair as quickly as possible.
