Car Repairs That You Should Never Do Yourself

Women repairing car herself

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.

Pulling onto the Shoulder of the Highway: Tips for Staying Safe

aerial view of intertwined busy roads and highways

Pulling onto the shoulder of the highway can be extremely dangerous. You should only stop on the shoulder if there is an emergency or safety concern and you must stop your vehicle. Although you shouldn’t ever pull onto the shoulder without a significant safety concern, sometimes it is your only option!

Tips for Staying Safe on the Shoulder

If you do need to stop on the shoulder it can be a very dangerous venture, so follow some of these tips to stay on top of safety while on the shoulder:

  • When pulling onto the shoulder, do not stop on a bend, curve, or sharp turn. This makes it difficult for oncoming drivers to see your vehicle. In a similar fashion, it also makes it more difficult for you to pull back onto the road once you’re ready.
  • Turn on your hazard flashers while slowing down to pull onto the shoulder so that other drivers are aware you have an issue with your vehicle. Leave them on for the entirety of your time on the shoulder to keep same-direction traffic aware of your position. Consider using Wipe New® Headlight Restore to ensure that your headlights, hazard lights, and taillights are all crystal clear so that other drivers can see them well!
  • Stay in your vehicle while on the shoulder. Getting out of your vehicle can be dangerous and is highly discouraged, which includes getting out to work on your vehicle as well.
  • Raise your vehicle hood to let passing authority vehicles know that help is needed. If the situation is severe, make sure to alert authorities and your roadside assistance service as soon as possible.

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.
