GREAT BRAKES - AUTOMOTIVE & MAINTENANCE TIPS FOR YOUR CAR
Use your blinkers and have a safe trip!
- Keep some gas (1/4 tank) in the car, it helps the fuel pump.
- Keep air in the tires to proper pressure.
- Check engine oil, and ask to get your air filter checked.
- A clicking sound when turning (front wheel drive) means the CV-shaft is failing.
- A knocking sound when a bump is hit could be a strut or sway bar.
- A knocking sound when turning and hitting a bump could be a tie-rod end or ball joint.
- The timing belt should be replaced before it breaks; if it does break, depending on the car, it could ruin the engine.
- The front tires and brakes wear out faster than the rear, tires need to be rotated.
