Headlight Maintenance Tips

Tags : 

Among obvious signs that your headlights aren’t properly aimed are oncoming drivers flashing their lights at you because your lights are blinding them, or the road ahead is brightly illuminated for only 20 feet or so, meaning the headlights are aimed too low.

Are fancy wiper blades worth the money?

Tags : 

When it comes time to replace windshield wiper blades, does it serve you best to spend more money on pricier brands?

Prices depend mainly on type and brand. There are three basic types of wipers. The most common is the frame type, which uses a metal framework to support the wiper. This is the most widely used and most affordable style of wiper.

How reliable is Bluetooth support for my new car?

Tags : 

Because technology changes so rapidly, we hesitate to answer with an unequivocal “Yes,” but we feel safe in saying that Bluetooth will remain the most common form of wireless connectivity for the foreseeable future. Its prevalence — especially among expensive products such as cars — will induce phone makers to continue supporting it. Bottom line: You shouldn’t have to buy a new car the next time you acquire a new phone to retain hands-free talking, audio streaming and other functions you enjoy now.

Will using regular gas void my warranty if my car manufacturer recommends premium gas?

Tags : 

Using regular gas in an engine that requires premium could void your warranty. That is most likely to happen if using regular causes severe engine knock or pinging (premature ignition of the fuel, also known as detonation) that damages the pistons or other engine parts.

Is Premium Gas worth the extra money?

Tags : 

The only guaranteed result of using premium gas in an engine designed for regular is that you will spend more money. As far as any tangible benefits, the chances are slim to none.

If your engine runs fine on regular, filling it with premium is unlikely to boost acceleration or fuel economy by more than insignificant amounts. No matter what you’ve heard, premium won’t do more to clean deposits from your fuel injectors or other parts of the fuel system because today’s regular gas contains the same detergent additives.

Does your brake pedal vibrate when you brake?

Tags : 

When it comes to brakes, there are no good vibrations. The most likely reason that you feel vibrations through the brake pedal is because a rotor — the rotating disc that the brake pads are pressed against — is unevenly worn, or what some call “warped.” (It’s unlikely that a rotor could truly warp from normal use as opposed to a manufacturing defect, but thinner and thicker sections — uneven wear — have the same effect.)

Does your car make a squeal sound when you turn the steering wheel?

Why Does My Car Squeal When I Turn the Steering Wheel?

If your car is making a squealing or squeaking sound when you turn the steering wheel, there could be any of several culprits at play.

One common cause is low power-steering fluid. When the fluid that powers and lubricates conventional power-steering systems gets low, it can lead to a squealing noise that may sustain for as long as the steering wheel remains off-center. Checking the fluid and replacing if necessary might be enough to solve the problem. Contamination of the fluid by dirt and debris also could be at the root of the problem. A failing power-steering pump could likewise be the cause. If adding fluid doesn’t solve the problem, a technician should be able to identify the cause and recommend a repair.

Is there any difference in quality between gas brands?

Tags : 

Does the Brand of Gas I Use Actually Matter?

Yes, it does matter, because some brands contain more detergent additives that can prevent carbon deposits from forming inside your engine.

These are the so-called Top Tier brands that use considerably more detergent additives than is required by the EPA. Several vehicle manufacturers recommend using Top Tier gas so they and their dealers don’t receive complaints from owners about poor performance or fuel economy caused by carbon deposits, fouled fuel injectors or other issues.
