You know how important it is to take care of your car, and one of the most important things to take care of is your tires because, after all, they support your vehicle. But there are a few things to consider to maintain your tires throughout the year.
Spring Is Here
Depending where you live, spring usually brings a little rain, making it imperative that your tires are in good condition.
If your car signals to you that its engine is overheating, through a dashboard light or temperature gauge, then you need to understand that this is a critical problem that needs to be immediately addressed. An engine that is not being properly cooled by a car's cooling system is at danger for very serious damage if the problem is not rectified in an expedient manner.
By following these steps, you can diagnose and fix your car's overheating issue:
Your car's transmission fluid is to your transmission as engine oil is to your engine. It cleans, cools, protects, and facilitates movement among the transmission's internal workings. But transmission fluid doesn't last forever; like engine oil, it deteriorates over time. The deterioration process can also be sped up by hard driving (including city driving, towing, hauling heavy loads, driving in hot weather, dusty atmospheric conditions, and so on). But unlike engine oil, transmission fluid doesn't have a clear-cut changing interval.
If you're having problems with your transmission – slipping out of gear, clunking when shifting, or even transmission fluid leaking underneath your car – then you know you need to take your car in to a mechanic. But for such important (and often expensive) work, how can you be sure you're taking it to the right place?
Because of how complex the transmissions of today's cars are, it's often not enough to simply have a good mechanic – you need a good mechanic who is also a transmission expert.
Clutch dragging is what happens when you try to change the gears, but the clutch struggles to disengage from the current one. You should suspect that this is the case if you also hear a loud noise while trying to change gears. Here are four things that may make your clutch drag:
Warped Pressure Plate
The pressure plate is a spring covered with a metal cover. When you press the clutch pedal, it provides friction for the clutch disc, which transfers the power to the flywheel for the disengagement of the gears.
