Engine repairs 

  • The engine plays a pivotal role in the working of a car. The way an engine works and functions depends upon the driving conditions. Proper engine service & repair helps the engine recover from the strain of handling bad roads.It might also be that your engine is being put to the grind because of the miles that you drive every single day. The condition of the engine also has a lot to do with how you use your car.

Timing Belt

 

 

Certain engines with overhead camshafts have timing belts that have a limited life span. Car makers use these belts instead of more durable chains because chains are noisier and cost more to manufacture. Your vehicle owner's manual will recommend at what mileage the timing belt must be replaced. These intervals range from every 60,000 miles to every 105,000 miles.

    Brakes

    Sometimes, your vehicle's brakes will alert you when there's trouble. Whistling noises, chirping sounds, and grinding are indications that maintenance is required. Vehicles often come equipped with a small thin piece of metal attached to the brake pad to act as a warning indicator when the pad material is getting low and the brake pads should be replaced. This device makes a chirping noise on brake application, letting you know it is time to have your brakes serviced. 

  • Here are some common causes of brake pedal pulsation and/or noise: 

    Worn brake pads

    Heat-cracked or worn rotors

    Loose-fitting brake pads in the caliper

    Missing or damaged noise insulators

    Uneven torque of lug nuts or caliper hardware
