Brake Repair National Transmission

Why Your Car Needs a Brake Repair

Besides regular oil changes and tire rotation, it is necessary to make sure your car’s brakes are working properly. Unfortunately, your car’s brakes will not work forever, and that’s why after years or miles of driving your car, the brakes may give way and increase your chances of an accident. Here is what you need to know about getting a brake repair.

Why Brake Repairs Matter

The brakes on your car are one of the most important features of your car’s functionality.
It’s simple if your car can’t stop, you’re going to crash. Instead of causing an accident you’re better off repairing your brakes, so you can be safe and not cause any damage to your car.
We’ve listed some steps and signs that you should pay attention to so you know when a brake repair is necessary for your car.

Monitor Your Brakes with Regular Check Ups

You cannot plan when your brakes will need a repair. This is not something that has to be done every three months but happens over time. When your car gets an oil change, it is best to ask your local professional mechanic how your brakes are looking.

How You Drive Your Car

The way you drive your vehicle has a huge impact on the life of your brakes. If you brake hard or stop short often, your brake pads will wear down faster than someone braking softly. Also, the quality of the current brakes you have on your car also impact their durability.

Signs to Know When You Need a Repair

Even with regular maintenance, some signs will signal that your brakes need to be fixed.
The first sign is if the car doesn’t respond when the brakes are pressed or respond slower than normal.
The second sign is the brake pedal may also pulse when you push down to stop.
The third and most noticeable is when there is squeaking or scraping sounds when you press on your brakes.

Auto Care: Your New Years Resolution

new years resolution car maintenance It’s that time of year again when we start making promises to ourselves for the new year. Here’s a New Years resolution we can all afford to make: to take better care of our cars.

Some people believe that skipping the car wash and procrastinating regular auto tune-ups is saving them money. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. The reality is that practicing proper auto care ensures your car’s life expectancy and protects its value, saving money in the long run. This month, the experts at National Transmissions and Auto Care Centers bring you three ways to take better care of your car in 2017.

1. Keep the Outside (and the Inside!) Clean

A dirty car isn’t just aesthetically unpleasant, did you know that excess dirt and grime can actually be damaging your car? That’s right, dirt, dust, bird droppings, and other pollutants build up over time and act like sandpaper on the surface of your vehicle, stripping down your vehicle’s finish and paint job and exposing your car to rust.

It’s important to set aside a couple of hours each week to wash and wax your vehicle. Don’t have the time to wash your car by hand? Run it through a car wash on your way home from work.

Don’t forget to clean the interior! Toss out any trash, wipe down your seats with leather or upholstery cleaner and vacuum all floor mats and carpets.

2. Proper Tire Care is Key

Did you know that practicing correct tire maintenance can save you money? Correct tire pressure will improve your fuel efficiency and extend the usable life of your tires, so you don’t have to replace them as frequently.

If it’s been a while since you inspected your tires, check for any visual signs of wear, use a tire pressure gauge to check air pressure, and examine your tires’ tread depth. To find the correct air pressure for your vehicle, refer to the owner’s manual or the tire placard attached to the vehicle door edge. As a rule, if tread depth is less than 2/32 inch, then your tires are bald and should be replaced immediately.

3. Practice Auto Regular Maintenance and Tune-ups

Prevent long term auto damage and safety risks with preventative car maintenance. Ask your mechanic to check your engine, transmission, brakes, brake pads and change your filters, oil, and other fluids as advised. Oil should be changed every three months or 3,000 miles. Filters can be changed every three years or 30,000 miles. If you drive a lot or drive on unpaved roads often,

Find a reliable auto care center in your area and take your car in for regular tune-ups to ensure all parts are in working order.

winter car maintenance tips

How to Get Your Car Winter Ready

Winter is almost here which means, like most people, you’re probably preparing to spend the holidays with your loved ones. For most of us, that means traveling by car.

While most modern vehicles are designed to handle inclement weather conditions, winter’s unpredictable weather conditions present several safety concerns. So, before you hit the road, make sure your vehicle is winter-ready with these winter auto care tips from the experts at National Transmissions and Auto Care Centers.

Check Your Battery

A dead battery is the most common cause of auto breakdowns. Be sure to get your battery checked by a professional so your holiday travels aren’t suddenly interrupted by a faulty battery.

Due to the change in temperature, your vehicle’s ability to accept a charge decreases, so the battery doesn’t recharge as quickly as you drive. Seat heaters, lights, defrosters, car heaters, and windshield wipers are used more frequently during the winter season, also causing your battery to work harder.

Ensure that your battery is working properly by making sure you have enough charge left in your battery before you depart for vacation. You can do this at home by using nationa voltmeter, or your local mechanic can run a battery test and check your battery fluid for you.

Replace or Refill Fluids

If you are traveling up north during the holiday season, it is wise to check all of your car’s fluid levels including:

  • Coolant- make sure you have the correct antifreeze/water ratio to keep fluid from freezing in your radiator.
  • Oil- if you will be visiting a state where temperatures are below freezing, speak with your mechanic about switching to a thinner oil.
  • Wiper fluid- keep your windshield clear by keeping your windshield wiper fluid level full. For best results, use freeze resistant wiper fluid.

Consider Your Tire Pressure and Tread

Don’t forget about your tires! Air contracts as it cools, meaning tire pressure changes with fluctuations in temperature. As a general rule, your tire pressure will drop one to two PSI for every ten-degree decrease in temperature.

Avoid safety issues due to under inflated tires. Proper tire pressure will also help you achieve the ultimate gas mileage, performance, and traction for your vehicle. Refer to your vehicle’s manual to find the correct tire pressure information for your car and check your PSI in the mornings for the most accurate reading.
