Car Repairs That You Should Never Do Yourself

Going to the mechanic can be costly, especially when you aren’t financially prepared for the fix that your vehicle needs. With technology constantly improving, it can be easy to find a how-to video online that shows you exactly how to take apart your car and put it back together. While making the repairs yourself may save you a pretty penny, there are some repairs you should never do yourself.

Transmission Repair or Maintenance

Today’s transmissions are finely tuned with thousands of small parts that all go in specific places. It is best to have these types of repairs completed at the auto shop by a mechanic that specializes in the repairs of transmissions, just to be sure that it is done correctly. A transmission can easily stop functioning if not repaired properly, which will cost you more money in the end than the repair initially would have.

Suspension Work

After a few years on the road, your vehicle may need some suspension work done whether it be on the struts, shocks, arms, or bushings. The repairs on these types of parts may seem simple at first glance, but they involve the use of specialized equipment for the repair to be done properly and safely. Coil springs and struts are under powerful tension and compressed force, which means one mistake could have you paying for hospital bills that would cost more than the repair.

Timing Belt Replacement

This is a normal maintenance that is not a cheap maintenance, however, trying to complete the repair on your own could have a disastrous outcome. A bad replacement job on this important piece of your vehicle could easily destroy the entire engine considering the repair involves taking the engine apart.

Doing a repair on your own may seem to be the easy way out financially, but the cost if it going wrong could really put you under. One repair you can do at home to keep you and others safe on the road is using the WipeNew Headlight Restore to restore your headlights, making them brighter for you to see and for others to see you. Keeping an emergency savings for occasions when these repairs need to be done is your best bet to keep your car in the best condition.

The Clean Classic: Keeping Your Vintage Ride Spotless

Cleaning your vehicle is something that all new car owners must do from time to time, but how should you go about cleaning a classic vehicle? The fact of the matter is these vehicles have different rules that must be followed in order to keep them in pristine condition. Below are some tips on how to clean modern and classic vehicles.

Cleaning Tips for Modern Cars

While it is certainly important to be mindful when washing your modern vehicle, the process can often be much simpler than a classic car. Automated car washes are an option, as most cars won’t scratch from these systems nowadays, and they are simple and affordable. If you are more of a DIY kind of person, self-washing can be as simple as spraying and wiping! To get the most out of your headlights during the cleaning process use Wipe New® Headlight Restore to keep your headlights as shiny as your car!

Cleaning Tips for Classic Cars

The first and most important tip for cleaning a classic car is to wash it strictly by hand. Automated car washes can often be too abrasive and may scratch the coating and paint. Automated car washes also do not properly dry your car, which can sometimes result in rusting and degradation of your beloved vehicle. On the topic of water, when washing your beloved classic ride, try to use water sparingly, as any water left behind in any crack or crevice can cause rust. Be sure to fully dry your vehicle after the cleaning process to ensure your classic car stays beautiful for years to come!

Fall-Time Car Maintenance

leaves with car in background

Gone are the hot summer days and it will be the bitter cold winter months before we know it. Although you may want to enjoy the crisp fall air and not think about winter, it’s important to prepare for winter now before it’s here. Here are some maintenance checks you should do to make sure your car is prepared for winter.

Car Battery

All batteries lose strength over time, so make sure you are being proactive in the replacement of your battery. You should disconnect and clean your connections with a wire brush or cleaning tool if they are dirty or corroded. Be sure to read your car’s manual to learn how to properly clean and replace your battery.

Headlights

As cars age, their headlights can become cloudy or hazy, and cleaning them is important. Cloudy headlights can affect how well you see at night which is a safety hazard for you and others on the road. To keep your headlights crystal clear, use Wipe New® Headlight Restore to clean your headlights in just seconds.

Wipers

If your wipers are leaving streaks on your windshield, you may need to clean or replace them. Wipers should be changed approximately every 6-12 months, however, you may be able to get the most out of your wipers lifespan by cleaning them with glass cleaner and a paper towel.

Tires

If you notice that your tires have less than an eighth of an inch of tread left, then it’s time to replace them. You can either choose all-season tires or summer and winter tires. Most people choose all-season tires because it’s a cheaper, easier option and they have overall good performance. However, winter tires give exceptional traction in the snow, but only fair braking capabilities. It’s up to you to decide which choice is best for you.

Get Your Car Summer Ready

It’s almost everyone’s favorite time of the year: summer. Endless BBQ’s, beach days, road trips, and so much more make summer the best time of year. This means you will be on the go a lot, spending a lot of time in your car. You’ll want to make sure it is in tip top shape both inside and out.

  1. Working AC system

Summer days are hot, and there’s no changing that. You may have been able to get through the winter with a non-functioning A/C system, but now it’s time to get it working. On those super hot days, having the windows down just won’t cut it. If you’re handy, you might be able to get in there and check for a leak and if not, you’ll have to take it to a certified mechanic.

  1. Use a sun shade

AC or not, we always recommend using a sun shade during the summer months. Not only will it keep the inside of your car a bit cooler, it will also protect your dashboard and upholstery from fading. If you have dark leather seats, blocking the sun out should be a top priority to reduce the temperature on scorching hot seats.

  1. Clean your car

Alright, you’ve checked you’re a/C system, fluid levels and have ensured your car is ready for the summer heat. The last thing you will need to do is clean your car. Afterall, you won’t want to show up to that BBQ in a dirty car, right? Include all the works when cleaning your car, like wiping down the interior, bathing the exterior and go one step further to ensure your headlights are sparkly clean with Wipe New Headlight Restore.

8 Autumn Car Care and Driving Tips!

wipe-new-fall-car-tips

Summer 2015 will soon be at a close and Fall is right around the corner.  That means cooler days, Halloween, and road trips to enjoy the Autumn colors.   It is also means taking some time to care for your car.  Here are some car care and Fall driving tips to consider:

  • Shorter days require more dependency on clear headlights. Foggy headlights are less effective than clear ones putting you and your passengers at risk. Pickup Wipe New Headlights and return your headlights to new again for just $10 and a few minutes time.
  • Check your battery! Battery life can reduce from the extreme summer heat.
  • Check your tires! Changing temperatures affect tire pressure.  All tires should be filled to their recommended tire pressure and checked for tire wear.  Don’t forget to check your spare tire.  Be mindful that Autumn often means wet leaves on the road.
  • Fall is a great time to check your air filters and wiper blades! Old Man Winter comes next! Get prepared!
  • Avoid parking your car over piles of dry fallen leaves. Your catalytic converter could spark a fire.
  • Keep your eye out for deer. Fall is deer mating season, so the danger of a deer darting onto a road, especially between dusk and dawn, increases.
  • Fall means back to school and children are out on the streets earlier than in the Summer. Take it slow and be mindful of children running in the street.
  • Be mindful of the weather. Fall weather conditions can change abruptly. Thunderstorms, sleet, hail and even snow are not that unusual.
  • Roads covered with a summer’s worth of grease can become slick when wet or covered with early morning frost, so anticipate those conditions and be careful.

Clean the interior!  After cleaning the trash out of the car, and taking care of the car’s exterior, it’s time to take on the interior.  Start by scrubbing the carpets and power-washing floor mats.  Make sure they dry completely.  Clean the insides of your windows and vacuum thoroughly.  Then use our original Wipe New to restore showroom shine on interior parts!  Wipe New is safe and effective to use on plastic, rubber, chrome, vinyl, leather, acrylic, ceramic and metallic surfaces.  Use Wipe New on your dashboards, door panels, and leather or vinyl seats.

Check and replace your fluids! Winter weather can deplete some fluids.When the engine is cool, check your oil, coolant, transmission and brake fluids. And don’t forget to fill up your windshield washer fluid. 

Lube the hinges!  Apply white lithium grease to each door, trunk and hood hinge to help prevent squeaks and premature wear.

Clean your headlights!  Tired of those aging, foggy headlights?  Spring cleaning time is a great time to restore your headlights!  Wipe New’s proprietary formula delivers crystal clear headlights in seconds and Wipe New Headlight Restore guarantees that your headlights will pass inspection for the life of the vehicle!

Don’t forget your trunk!  Many people place bags of gravel, sand, or kitty litter and/or rock salt in their trunks over winter.  Doing so can sometimes help during slippery conditions and when you need to throw something under the tires to gain traction in the ice or snow. Come spring, it’s time to remove those heavy bags, improve your gas mileage, and simple free up space.
