Have you noticed your car whining when you try to start it? Are lights flickering? If it seems like your battery might be failing, it could just be that it's having a harder time due to the colder weather. Why does this happen? It's based on the chemicals within your battery.

Proper Tire Tread and Pressure

One of the scariest scenarios when driving your car is hydroplaning. You temporarily lose control of the vehicle because the tires have lost their ability to grip the road’s wet surface. Vehicle speed and tire maintenance are two crucial elements in avoiding that unfortunate circumstance.

Tires should be rotated about every seven thousand miles to achieve the most even tread wear. They adjust to their placement, and by rotating, you even out all your tires. The front tires generally have more wear than the rear. When you rotate, each side should be switched as well as the front to…

Do You Understand Your Vehicle’s Differential?

Your engine generates the power for your car, truck, or SUV to move. But what creates forward motion from that generated power? That process involves a lot of moving parts. One of the most important pieces of that process is your differential.
