Your vehicle’s battery is like the heart of your car. The typical battery is a “wet-cell” battery, meaning a plastic cube containing sulfuric acid and lead, with two terminals on the top side of the battery. Without it, your vehicle will not start, let alone keep running or considered as reliable transportation.

By knowing what causes a dead car battery, you can take some battery maintenance safeguards to prevent it.

  • First of all, be sure to check the fluid level in your battery as well as the battery cables. If the fluid is low and has been for a while, this will prevent your car battery from generating power or holding power. 
  • More critical are the battery’s cable connections to the vehicle. If the connections are loose or corroded, they prevent the electrical current in the battery from going to the vehicle’s components, thus causing your car not start.

Do you know what part of your vehicle is the only part that comes in contact with the road? That’s right—tires! Many vehicle owners often don’t think about their tires until they experience problems, which later may become an expensive cost. This is why auto shops promote a tire service schedule as part of their preventative vehicle maintenance checklist. Periodic tire repair, which includes tire rotation, is highly recommended by auto repair professionals and automobile manufacturers.

Here is why Tire Rotation is important:

  1. Tread wears evenly – Generally, front tires wear out faster than the rear because they perform differently than rear tires. Rotating your tires periodically helps the tread to wear evenly as a tire goes from a high-wearing position to a low-wearing position.
  2. Keeps tire warranties valid -- Most tire manufacturers offer warranties which may include free rotation services at specified periods of time or mileage. 
  3. Helps maintain handling –  Rotating tires spread out the wear on the tread more evenly, helping maintain traction on slick road surfaces, crucial for braking.
  4. Save money -- Periodic tire rotation helps save drivers money by extending the lifespan of their tires.
There are several good reasons your auto shop promotes a tire service schedule. One good reason is how important is tire rotation for driving safety.

In order for your vehicle to keep running smoothly, all of its components need to be in good working order. Taking the time for regular car inspections and keeping up with needed repairs is the best way to ensure that everything is working as it should.

Unfortunately, this can also mean that it is out of sight and out of mind.

You may be asking, “What are the signs of a bad muffler?” Here are three signs that you may notice if there are problems developing in the exhaust system:
