While car's today are very efficient, they are quite complex so anyone attempting to perform a repair will need special tools. This is in stark contrast to the cars of decades past that only required traditional tools to fix.

What does it mean when someone says that the tire has a high aspect ratio? Well, it refers to low-performance tires. The lower aspect ratio refers to the high performance of tires.

If your car breaks down, never get out of the vehicle to make a repair or examine the damage on a busy highway. If possible, get the vehicle to a safe place before getting out, and make sure that you and the vehicle are clearly visible to other drivers.

Tapping noises coming from the engine while it's running may only be a sticky valve lifter. However, it can also indicate a problem with oil flow through the engine. Have it diagnosed and fixed to avoid serious problems.

Anti-lock brakes have sensors on each wheel to monitor speed and to prevent skidding when the brakes are suddenly applied. Periodic inspection is needed to make sure the system is in top condition.

Excessive wear on the outer edges of the tread is a telltale sign of underinflated tires. It may also be an indicator that something is wrong with the wheel alignment.

Tired of the cup holders in your car getting gunked up and sticky? Here's a simple hack to prevent that: place cupcake liners in them. Not only do they protect the holders, they are easy to remove.

Did you know that the three-point seat belt was the brainchild of Swedish aircraft engineer Nils Ivar Bohlin? He designed the belt as a combination lap and diagonal belt positioned across the pelvis and rib cage.

If the brake light comes on while you're driving, pull over safely and make sure the parking brake has been completely released. If the light remains on after doing this, you need to bring your vehicle in to determine the problem.

I wish I could give him more stars. He went above and beyond my expectations and was incredibly helpful. I got rear ended and he was not only the cheapest option but he was the most honest about the damage. He got me in quickly and had my car fixed incredibly fast especially considering he had to order the parts. I was honestly shocked at how fast and great the work was. You can’t even tell I was hit. It looks brand new and I am incredibly thankful for how professional and hardworking he was. If you’re having car issues this is by far the best place to go in the area.
