Five Preventable Auto Repairs

Weber shares tips on how to keep your vehicle running long and strong | North Olmsted, Ohio

There are many preventable issues that people experience with their vehicles. People often don't know why the problem has occurred, and they don't know that there are steps they can take to prevent these issues. 

The Five Most Common and Preventable Auto Repairs:

Engine Failure

Engine failure is one of the most expensive repairs or replaces that we see with vehicles. However, many times, engine failure can be prevented with simple routine maintenance like oils changes.

Change the oil in your vehicle every three to five thousand miles. In your vehicle's manual, the manufacturer will give you a suggested timeline for oil changes, but we suggest you shorten that time by 20 to 30 percent. The manufacturer doesn't want your engine to last forever so they can sell you more, but we want to see your engine last as long as possible! Oil changes are cheap; engine repairs are not!

Transmission Failure

Transmission failure is often caused by neglect, as well. Some of the manufacturers nowadays are saying transmission fluid lasts the life of the car. And there's truth to that. But if you want to extend the life of the transmission, change the fluid. A transmission fluid change ever sixty to seventy thousand miles is a way to keep the transmission running as long as possible. 

Another way to keep your transmission in the best condition is to not drive like you're always in a hurry. Many people are always slamming on the brakes and accelerating too fast. These actions cause your transmission life to shorten dramatically. So be nice to your car, and it will last a lot longer!

Premature Brake Failure

Brakes often fail prematurely if they are not serviced or if you're too rough with them. So, if you want your brakes to last longer, you need to make sure that you are getting preventative maintenance on the brakes and the calipers and drive easy!

Premature Tire Wear

Again, tires will last so much longer if you give yourself a little bit more room to stop, accelerate slower, and don't take turns too fast. 

Another thing you can do to extend the life of your tires if to make sure they are properly inflated. Don't wait for the light to come on in the dashboard because it could be a few pounds off every now and then. So, every couple of weeks, check the pressure with the gauge.

Also, make sure the alignment of your tires is correct. Improper alignment can really take a toll on your tires.

Cooling System Failure 

Your vehicle's cooling system is the temperature regulator for all the components in your car, including the engine, transmission, cab, and more.

One thing you can do to keep the cooling system in good condition is to change the antifreeze every 50 to 100 thousand miles.  The antifreeze helps keep the corrosion levels low in your cooling system.
