What Is the 30K, 60K, 90K Rule?

What Is the 30K, 60K, 90K Rule?

Most automakers nowadays put way more effort into the creation of your car than ever before. To keep your vehicle working for long periods, they have designed a factory-scheduled maintenance plan, also known as the 30, 60, 90K services. It is important that you are mindful of maintenance. A good rule of thumb to follow is, of course, the 30, 60, 90 rule of maintenance service. The 30, 60, 90K plan in the automotive service industry simply means that you should bring your vehicle into your trusted auto repair shop every 30,000 miles that it has been driven. In essence, it can go up to 120K, 150K, and so forth. This is a good way to keep track of your maintenance and ensures you never miss critical tasks, like transmission flushes and timing belt replacements. It also makes the process of scheduling your appointment with your auto service shop easier. Since every automaker has a set list of items that should be done at the 30,000-mile mark, 60,000-mile mark, and 90,000-mile mark, ther ... read more

What to Do When Your Engine Overheats

A puff of white smoke from your car's bonnet may be distressing and harmful to your vehicle's health. Most modern cars come with a well-structured cooling system that is computer controlled with multiple heat sensors and fans to keep them cool. Still, overheating can happen despite this sophisticated setup. What happens when the engine overheats? When the heat generated by a running engine exceeds the recommended level, your engine will overheat. When this happens, the fans and other cooling components fail. Overheating occurs due to blocked hoses or leaks, radiator problems, mineral deposits, corrosion, and broken water bumps. So what do you do when your engine overheats? Taking the right steps or approach can save you from a completely damaged car when overheating occurs. Consider doing the following when your vehicle overheats. Pull over to a safe place When smoke starts coming from your hood, pull to a safe spot, and turn off the car. Let the engine co ... read more

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. However, it may come on in different ways, and below's a detailed description ... read more

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
