In order for your vehicle to keep running as intended, all of its components need to work together. Taking the time to have a car inspected and maintained is the best way to ensure that everything is working as it should. This inspection should include the exhaust system. Don’t wait until you start to hear the rumbling sounds of trouble.

You may be asking, “What are the signs of muffler problems?” Here are three signs to watch out for:

Don’t neglect these 3 signs of muffler problems; loud noises decreased fuel economy, and bad odors. Have the exhaust system checked regularly by professional auto experts.

“My car is acting weird. It won’t go straight even though I’m steering straight; and my tires seem to be wearing unevenly”. Don’t feel like you’re alone with this dilemma. It’s quite common.  You are experiencing one of the four signs of a bad alignment.

Every new car coming off the assembly line comes with preset special angles that position your tires correctly. This is called proper alignment and is required for your tires to track with the steering wheel of your car.  If your vehicle is misaligned, you will experience the symptoms mentioned above.

When you drive down poorly maintained roads, hit potholes, or even a curb, it can cause damage to the wheel alignment. When your vehicle is properly aligned, it ensures optimal drivability by keeping your wheels pointed in the right direction. It helps your tires last longer and your vehicle drive smoother. It will also require less energy to keep going, potentially saving you money on fuel.

If you’re facing one of the signs of a bad alignment, schedule a wheel alignment service at your car shop to prevent further damage to your car.

When was the last time you had your car serviced? Keeping up with regular car maintenance is an expense, but the potential costs of damage that can happen in an engine, transmission, and suspension due to lack of maintenance is much greater. Some vehicle owners try to save money by extending the time between the vehicle maintenance services on their car.

So what happens if you don’t take care of preventative auto maintenance? When things like a spark or glow plugs start to wear out, filters not replaced, or the oil changed, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Decreased fuel efficiency
  • Lack of power when accelerating
  • Cabin air quality is diminished
  • Noisy motor from oil sludge building up

These basic vehicle maintenance items can cost you money in urgent car repair, and that's before you get too worn safety items like brakes, shock absorbers, or transmissions!

Some drivers don’t know why car maintenance is important until they find themselves looking for urgent repair? Follow the vehicle maintenance schedule listed in your owner's manual.
