AUTO REPAIR & MAINTENANCE BLOG

Maintaining your vehicle at home is a satisfying way to keep your motoring costs down. With the right knowledge and products even someone who isn't very mechanically inclined can take care of many of the smaller issues in everyday driving. Sometimes, however, car issues can be too specialized or complex for the average motorist to take care of by themselves and it becomes time to take your car to the pros. Below you'll find three major warning signs that you need to get to a mechanic ASAP, as well as some of the potential causes behind them.



Engine and Drivetrain Problems

Let's start at the beginning. If your car won't even turn over and start up, then the rest of the problems on this list won't come into play. The simplest cause of this issue is a dead battery, which you can remedy with jumper cables, and the instructions that come printed on their packaging. If jumping the car doesn't work, you may have a larger problem with your ignition system. It's advisable to take your car into the shop at this point because finding the root of the problem will likely involve removing a few parts from your engine. Whether it's dead spark plugs or electrical problems, it's better to have it dealt with by a professional. Likewise, engine surging where the revs rise and fall can mean a problem with your fuel injectors, which are fairly deep within your motor. It's unwise to drive around with a surging engine, as this burns more gas and can cause unintended acceleration. Drivetrain issues are another major issue requiring professional attention. Everybody fears the dreaded transmission repairs, so if certain gears won't engage or they shift at the wrong times you should definitely take your car to the qualified mechanics here at BrakesXpress Total Car Care.



Vibration While Driving

This issue can be caused by damaged drivetrain components, but can also stem from misaligned wheels or unbalanced or flat tires. If you feel any vibration or shuddering as you drive along, you should get to a mechanic as soon as you can. At its worst, this issue can lessen your control over the car, potentially causing accidents. This will also wear out your tires more quickly than if everything was straight and true. Unwanted vibrations put stress on important (and costly) components like suspension and brakes while decreasing gas mileage, so it's smart to take your car in as soon as these issues develop.



Poor Braking Performance

Your brakes are vital to keeping you safe on the road and should definitely be cared for by a professional, unless you're absolutely sure you know what you're doing. Common signs of issues with your car's braking system include squeaking or squealing when the brakes are applied, or the brakes feeling spongy and failing to slow your vehicle properly. Squealing brakes are caused by the brake pads wearing through the pad surface to the metal underneath. At this point the metal behind your brake pad is coming into contact with the brake rotor. This can be disastrous and produce unwanted heat, reduced stopping power, and cause you to have to buy new rotors as well as the relatively cheap pads. Spongey and weak brakes can mean there's a problem with your master cylinder, which converts the mechanical pressure of you pressing the pedal into hydraulic pressure to apply the brakes. In either case, it's best to have your brakes seen to by the professional mechanics here at BrakesXpress Total Car Care.



There are instances where car maintenance is simple and easy, but if you notice any of these issues developing, it's best to take your car in for a qualified mechanic's checkup so the problems can be remedied before they turn into much more serious issues. BrakesXpress Total Car Care has the tools and expertise to have you safely back on the road in no time at all.

    Thank you for helping fix something that I didn't know was broken. I just went in for an oil change. Ended up needing to fix an oil leak. I thought it was because my car is older, but now it's running much better. I'm very happy with the service and quality. Thank you ??

    I have taken 2 different cars to this place. The dealer had told me about things that were wrong with my Toyota Scion and Angelo confirmed the damage and charge me about half of what the dealer wanted. My son has an older car and my old mechanic wanted about $2000 for different repairs but when I took it to BrakesXpress I was told that only a couple of things needed to be done and the price was great! Honest mechanics are a rare find so I am really happy to have found one.

    have a 1999 Toyota Camry le. And every time I've been told by different mechanics that something's wrong with my car, I take it to this place for a 2nd opinion, and it's always been less cost to me than other businesses. Angelo the owner tells me even sometimes that nothing serious is wrong, and fixes it within the day. I'm very happy to have an honest mechanic like him close to my home.

    This is such a great family owned business. He was able to diagnose the problem quickly. I have been here several times and the customer service is always excellent and the repairs are quick and reasonably priced. They didn't sell me something I didn't need. If I need anything done on a car, I will always be quick to return here. Love this place and highly recommend!
