FAQs

 

Why is my car engine shaking?

Your car engine might shake because:

Engine Misfire: Sometimes, one or more engine parts don’t work right, causing shaking.
Bad Spark Plugs: If the spark plugs are old or broken, the engine might shake.
Fuel Problems: Issues with fuel parts can make the engine shake.
Airflow Issues: Problems with airflow parts can affect how the engine works, making it shake.
Engine Mounts: If the parts holding the engine are worn out, the engine might shake more.
Exhaust Troubles: If the exhaust system has leaks or blockages, it can cause shaking.

It’s important to have a mechanic check what’s causing the shaking to keep you safe on the road.

How to check transmission fluid?

To check transmission fluid:

Park your car on level ground and keep the engine running.
Locate the transmission fluid dipstick, usually near the engine.
Pull out the dipstick, wipe it clean with a rag, and reinsert it fully.
Pull it out again and check the fluid level. It should be between the “Min” and “Max” marks.
If it’s low, add transmission fluid slowly through the dipstick tube.
Recheck the level and replace the dipstick securely when done.

Remember to consult your car manual for specific instructions and safety precautions. Or better yet, come visit us for a quick car repair.

How do check worn brake pads?

To check for worn brake pads, you can visually inspect them through the openings in your wheel rims. Look for the brake pad material against the metal rotor. If the pad thickness is less than 6 millimetres, it’s likely time for brake pads replacement. You may also hear squealing or grinding noises when braking, which could indicate worn brake pads. If you’re unsure or uncomfortable with inspecting your brakes yourself, it’s best to have a mechanic check them for you. They can provide a thorough inspection and advise you on any necessary repairs or replacements.

How long can I drive with worn brake pads?

It’s not safe to drive with worn brake pads, as they can greatly reduce your ability to stop your vehicle safely. Worn brake pads can increase stopping distances and potentially lead to brake failure. If you suspect your brake pads are worn, it’s best to have them inspected during out car repair service and then replaced as soon as possible. Continuing to drive with worn brake pads can put you and others at risk of accidents and injuries.
