It’s no big secret that cars need a lot of TLC throughout their life, with some needing a bit more care than others. Even the most reliable car, truck, minivan or CUV may end up darkening the doors of the local repair shop at some point. In short, there are plenty of things that can go wrong with the average automobile and the following items are common enough to make the cut on this short list.

Tires
Most people assume tires get replaced whenever punctures happen, but if the damage isn’t too bad, many people opt to have them sealed up by an experienced professional. If a tire meets the wrong end of a nail and it still has plenty of tread life left on it, it makes since to have it repaired, just as long as it’s safe to do so.

Brake Rotors
Brake rotors eventually do become worn out, getting progressively thinner as the miles roll on. Uneven and gouged surfaces are usually reason to have them resurfaced. If the rotors are too thin or damaged to be ground down to a smooth finish, they’re often replaced.

Alternators
Alternators essentially help put back what the battery expends during cranking or whenever the vehicle is in “accessory mode,” since it charges the battery and supplies juice for the car’s electrical system during engine operation. This part tends to fail after five or six years of service, especially if it was taxed by high-drain products or defects in wiring or grounding.

Water Pumps
Designed to circulate engine coolant throughout the various coolant passages located within the engine, having this part repaired or replaced is absolutely imperative for any vehicle’s continued operation. Most water pumps are replaced with refurbished or reconditioned units that promise the same type of quality and operation as new water pumps, but at a lower cost.

Mufflers
Rust is the enemy of the average muffler, more so if the vehicle in question has seen its fair share of exposure to road salt. Road debris can also put a sizable hole in a muffler, making the entire car sound louder than usual.

Air Conditioning Systems
Living in hot climates tends to give people an added appreciation of air-conditioning as a standard feature in nearly all new cars on the road today. Unfortunately, the average A/C system can give out for any number of reasons and this happens often enough to make it one of the many common car parts repaired by mechanics.

Automatic Transmissions
This is one major automotive part that you’re probably wishing would last a life of your vehicle, but in many cases, it never does. The average automatic transmission ranks as one of the most fragile components on any car because it is so susceptible to heat and neglect. Adding the wrong type of transmission fluid, not adding enough fluid or going too long in between fluid changes can cause the transmission to operate hotter than normal, thereby shortening its lifespan and sending it down the road to failure. These components also cost anywhere from $1500 and up to refurbish or replace.

   

Having discussed the various vehicle parts that are quite essential in driving, it’s important to review some of the indicators that your vehicle needs service. Some of these are pretty basic and well known but reviewing them doesn’t hurt.

First off, is that whitish steam emanating from beneath your vehicle’s hood or wherever the engine is located? This is quite common after long mileage is covered at once on your vehicle. It would mean that the vehicle is running out of engine coolant (water) due to overheating. You can remedy this by using distilled water for the radiator.

At any one time before you set out to drive, always inspect your vehicle’s vital parts and functions to ensure you are safe to travel. Small and seemingly inconsequential parts or damages to an automobile could result in deadly accidents. First off, check your tires. Make sure you have enough and right amount of tire pressure. Inspect also the tire valve stem. This is the small metallic stem on the inner part of your tire that you use to inflate and deflate it. Ensure it’s not faulty and can comfortably hold the air inside.

Also of importance is to check that your tire treads are not worn out and can withstand slippery areas. Friction in driving is highly important especially in cold weather and in areas that experience snowing and muddy roads.

From the lower part, check to see that the head light lamps are well functioning. Especially in foggy and misty conditions, it is highly important that you ensure that other motorists can see your vehicle. This also applies while driving in the dark. Get the right headlight lamps at your favorite auto-parts seller.

A common issue especially for those driving in rough terrain areas is a disturbing creaking sound coming from the vehicle’s chassis. This could mean many things it could be a problem with loose gaskets in the engine or chassis or also loose bolt-nut connection. A complete inspection would be necessary at this point.

Let’s talk about wheels again. It’s important to make sure that your wheels are balanced. There are various accessories and parts including a wheel balancer kit and a tire changer to help you change a flat tire whenever and wherever it happens, on online shopping stores. Most of the established stores consist of all small tools and jacks necessary to change a tire.

Paramount also is the brake line and fitting. Having a well moving vehicle but without properly working brakes can be hazardous. Test your vehicle to see how the braking system is working. The torque (force) exerted at the brake pads in the vehicle must be transmitted equally to the wheels. This means that a brake line hose is used. This part must also be maintained and properly flared to make sure it works properly. You can also find hose clamps to seal any leakages.
