Some of the things that might cause your acceleration to stall include; Transmission Issues have arisen Even when your vehicle is in superb condition, it could occasionally seem slow.

What does the TPMS warning light indicate?

What does the TPMS warning light indicate?

Vehicles sold in the US have been required to have a Tire Pressure Monitoring System since 2008, and with good reason. Its function is to inform the driver when the tire pressure is low or likely to jeopardize their safety while driving. Overinflation or underinflation can affect your vehicle negatively. The former may lead to reduced traction, premature wear and tear, and a decreased ability to absorb road impact. On the other hand, uninflated tires may cause tire overload, excessive heat accumulation, and sluggish tire response. The above consequences can lead to a dangerous situation while you're on the road. They're among the reasons why the TPMS light is important. Here's a breakdown of the various meanings it has when in action. The Different Meanings of TPMS Warning Lights As aforementioned, the TPMS light's function is to help you know when the tire pressure is too low or high.

What Causes Brake Rotors To Warp?

What Causes Brake Rotors To Warp?

Brake rotors are necessary because they spin with the wheels and stop them when the brake pads press against them. The brake rotors generate a lot of heat during the braking process, which needs to dissipate quickly so that the brake pads can be pressed down again. This intense heat can cause the surface of the brake rotors to warp over time, a phenomenon known as warping. This can cause your vehicle's brakes to become less effective and jittery. Why Do Brake Rotors Warp? Brake rotor warping is not as bad as it sounds. Actually, warping is an uneven surface caused primarily by heat. Warping of brake rotors can occur in the following ways: The brake pad material has the potential to glaze the brake rotors. This occurs when the brake pads become extremely hot, allowing material to fall onto the brake rotors. As a result, the surface of the brake rotor becomes uneven, reducing the overall effectiveness of the brakes. Furthermore, the surface of the rotor can deteriorate, and certa ... read more

Here are 5 signs your battery is dying: A Slow-Starting Engine If you've noticed that your car takes longer than usual to start up, it might be time for a new battery.

Dim Lights or Headlights Are Slow To Turn On If your car dome light doesn't brighten at all, or if it looks dim when you turn the key, it could be a sign of a dying battery. Likewise, if your headlights are slow to pop on after starting the engine, this can be another indicator of trouble.

If you have a standard wet cell car battery, like you would find in most cars, trucks, and SUVs from the last few decades, there will be a sticker on top with a code printed.
