Common  Car Problems & Solutions (by John Hughes)

It is important to make sure that you prevent car problems for your safety and those travelling with you on the roads. Even if your car is new nothing is guaranteed that there will be no hiccups with the car. Following are some of the common car problems and tips on what you can do to sort them out.

  • Your car tyres may be uneven and this is not always obvious especially while you driving that your car t yres are unevenly worn. This can be very dangerous due to their reduced grip on the road.  A quick check will tell you if your tyres are worn unevenly. Rotating your tyres and having your wheels aligned regularly can help prevent this problem.  Check with the tyre manufacturer as to how many time you should align your tyres as this differ for every vehicle and the type of tyres used.

  • Having problems starting your car, either it’s taking too long to start or it does not start at all. This may be caused by a number of reasons, the most common being a dead battery. It is important to pay attention to the noise it makes when you turn the key. If the car is completely silent, there may be a problem with the battery terminal cable connections. If it cranks over but does not start it could be your spark plugs or fuel supply to the engine.

  • Is your air conditioner not working? It is only blowing room temperature rather than cold when switched on. This is caused by not having a refrigerant left in the system. This could be caused by a leak somewhere in the system and that needs to be fixed before refilling the refrigerant. A mechanic can help you with this.

  • Your car engine is overheating, this can be shown by steam or smoke coming out from the bonnet. Overheating can be caused by a few different factors. One is that your car needs more coolant.

  • Noisy Brakes, this means that your brake pads could be loose, worn out or you may have brake dust inside the drum.  Brake dust, however, it is better to leave it to the professionals and can be extremely dangerous when inhaled.
