I seem to have a rough idle in my car and the engine light is flashing, what could be the problem?

Most of the time when we get this complaint the problem will be an engine miss fire. This will make the engine light flash and make the engine very rough running. It’s important to get this repaired as soon as you can because the miss fire can cause other problems and make more expensive to fix.

When do I need to replace my timing chain?

We had a question from yesterdays post, a customer asked about a timing chain not a timing belt and when a chain needed replaced. Well there is no real maintenance on timing chains they last the life of the engine in most cases.  There have been times when the timing chain guides have worn out causing noise in the front of the engine, in this case you would need to replace all the timing components  including the chain.

Do I really need to replace my timing belt like my mechanic tells me?

Timing belts do have a working lifetime limit and there is a recommended service time by the manufacture. You can check your owner’s manual for the service interval. This can be one of the most important maintenance items you do, If the timing belt breaks it can cause major engine damage and there you are stuck on the side of the road where no one wants to be.

Why are my tires badly worn on both the inside and the outside? There is tread in the middle

The main reason for this to happen is low air pressure.  When a tire is run low on pressure the center gets soft and all the weight the tire carries is put on the edges, that,s why the edges get worn much faster. Just the opposite happens with too much air pressure the center gets hard and wears out before the rest of the tire. Tire pressure is important for good tire ware, gas mileage, and making those tires last just as long as possible.

Wiper blades how many different kinds are there?

You know it used to be there were two or three different kinds and that was about it. Not so any longer there are conventional types, stealth types, some that have wind reflectors on them and even some that are made of different kinds of materials as well as numerous different kinds of mounts.  Your service center should be able to install the correct ones.
