Leaking Car Fluid -- Never Again!

We cannot get by without our automobile and it is essential for life today. It's always nice to be able to go to a dealership and get a new vehicle and not have to worry about maintenance, but many of us have older vehicles which do not fare as well and from time to time we will start to notice some kind of substance on the garage floor -- leaking car fluid.For a means of transport that basically takes us from point A to point B, the typical automobile is amazingly complicated. There are so many moving parts, which will wear out over time and the lubrication required will find its way out off perishing rubber joints and hoses, leading to leaking car fluid more often than we would like.When you first notice something on the floor of your garage, you should try to identify what it is and where it is coming from. So many different types of fluid are within your vehicle, but they do vary in smell, color and texture. To pinpoint the source, try putting a piece of paper on the floor underneath the vehicle overnight...


What Do You Really Know About Your Car's Fluids?

Every day when you head out in the morning you almost take it for granted that you'll be able to get in the car, start it up and go. Certainly we know enough to get it a (fairly) regular check up at the mechanics and many of us have enough car knowledge to know when to head to an auto car part retailer to buy certain parts to fix a problem with the air conditioning or heating system, or to replace a broken headlight cover. What we often do not do is pay enough attention to the fluids that help keep the car going on a daily basis, which means more than just giving them the occasional top off. Fluids need to be replaced on a regular basis to stop them going bad and you also have to be careful not to overfill them, something that can be just as bad for the health of your car as too little fluid can be! Troubleshooting Fluid Leaks can Save Your Car Fluid stains on the garage floor can me a messy eyesore but they can also be the first sign of trouble within the car and should not just be ignored. But how can yo...


When Your Car's Engine Consumes Excess Oil

Motor oil is supposed to course through your engine, providing a protective layer between the metal parts. As the parts move, the fluid provides lubrication. Without it, the parts inside the assembly would grind against one another, create friction, and eventually destroy each other. Motor oil prevents this from happening, and thus helps you avoid a costly repair bill. In many cases, especially with vehicles that have high mileage, the engine begins to use oil at a faster rate than normal. Assuming you're checking the fluid level on a regular basis, you'll notice it drops quickly. We'll explain the reasons this happens below. None of the following will be pleasant news since it usually means expensive repairs are necessary. Severely Worn Or Failing Valve Guides During operation, the intake valves open to allow fuel into the engine's cylinders. The valves are connected to valve guides. Over time, the guides wear down, which impairs the valves' ability to seat properly. This allows oil to run down the guides...
