How to Clean Your Car's Headlights

Having clean headlights is essential for ensuring you can see the road properly, especially at night and in certain weather conditions. Not only that, but keeping your headlights clean helps to maintain the overall appearance of your vehicle, making it look newer and more attractive. Thankfully, you don't need to take your car to a dealership or auto shop to keep your headlights clean. You can do it yourself relatively easily at home. Here are a few tips on how to clean your car's headlights: Start by washing the headlight covers with a mild soap and warm water. This will remove any dirt and debris that has built up, as well as any road grime or bug splatter. After your headlight covers are clean, use a soft, dry cloth to apply a headlight cleaner. This removes any oxidation that has built up over time, restoring the clarity of the headlights. If you have any deep scratches or blemishes, you can use a non-abrasive polish or wax to help buff them out. This will help to keep ... read more

When to Get Your Car’s Alignment Checked

  How do you know when your car needs an alignment? And how do you find a good mechanic who can accurately perform the alignment?   Many car owners are unsure of the answers to these questions, so let’s break down the basics.     What is an Alignment?    An alignment, or wheel alignment, is a service that ensures that all four wheels of your vehicle are positioned correctly relative to each other and the road. This helps keep your car in its optimal condition as it moves down the road, which is important for both safety reasons and improved performance. A proper wheel alignment helps ensure that your vehicle handles correctly and drives straight without any pulling or veering. It also helps optimize fuel economy and tire life.   When Does My Car Need an Alignment?  Your car's alignment should be checked at least once a year (or every 10,000 miles). However, if you hit a curb or pothole, e ... read more

What is a Soft Brake Pedal Telling You?

When driving, you will step on the brake and accelerator pedals hundreds of times. With enough time, you should be able to tell how strong the brake pedal is. If the pedal is soft, it could be a sign that there is an issue with the braking system. Brakes are essential to driving, so you should resolve the issue immediately. The following is what a soft brake pedal may be telling you: Hydraulic Issues The most prevalent cause of soft brake pedals is hydraulic problems, specifically air in the braking system. The braking system functions optimally because braking fluid is incompressible, meaning it transmits all the braking force to the four breaks. Contrarily, the air is compressible, so if there is air in the braking system, it will not transmit braking force to the brakes optimally. When you step on the brake pedal, it will be soft because you will have to compress the air before getting to the fluid. You can promptly solve the problem by flushing the braking system. By removing t ... read more

Preparing Your Car for a Long Trip: What to Ask the Mechanic

  Taking your car on a long trip can be both exciting and terrifying. You want to make sure you and your car are as prepared as possible before you hit the road. One of the best ways to do this is to take your car in for an inspection with your mechanic. But what should you ask them to look at? Read on for a few tips about what you should include in your pre-trip mechanic inspection.     Fluids and Filters One of the most important things that needs to be checked before taking a long trip is the fluids and filters in your car. This includes checking the oil, coolant, transmission fluid, windshield washer fluid, power steering fluid, and brake fluid. Your mechanic will also check all of the various filters in your car (air filter, cabin air filter, fuel filter) to make sure they are clean and free from debris. This helps ensure that these systems run smoothly while on the road.   Tires and Brakes Your tires are one of the mos ... read more

Why You Shouldn't Forget About Getting Your Oil Changed

 Many people think that as long as they have fresh gasoline in their tank and their engine is running smoothly, they're all set. However, there's one very important maintenance task that far too many drivers neglect: getting their oil changed on a regular basis. Keep reading to learn more about why this is such an important task and why you should never forget to do it. Engine oil is one of the most important fluids in your vehicle. Its primary purpose is to lubricate your engine's parts and prevent them from grinding against each other, which can cause serious damage. In addition, oil helps to cool your engine by dispersing heat away from its critical components. Over time, however, oil breaks down and becomes less effective at performing these tasks. That's why it's important to change your oil on a regular basis according to your manufacturer's recommendations. If you don't change your oil often enough, you run the risk of damaging your engine. The ... read more
