My car wobbles at low speeds, what could this be?

Many times you can have a separated tire, this is a very dangerous condition because the tire can fail completely and leave you stuck on the road or worse. Any time you feel a shake or wobble you should get to your service center and have all the tires checked. The tire may still have  a lot of tread so at first look it may seem o.k, the car should be put on a lift and have a thorough inspection.

How often do I need to do an alignment on my car?

Good question, always get the wheel alignment checked when you replace your tires, you can destroy a new set of tires if the alignment is out. Of course if you have any kind of accident where things could have been moved the alignment should be checked. And  a good recommendation would be every 20k miles or 2 years, this way you have a better chance of finding any worn parts that could make your car unsafe and making the tires last as long as possible.

Why does my car shake at 60 M.P.H.?

Most of the time a shake at around that speed only, is a tire balance problem. If you have a shake at lower speeds you may have a drive line issue, either way this should be checked out of balance tires can cause the tires to wear poorly.  Many times people confuse alignment with balance, but usually alignment will not cause a shake, There are many other things that can make your car drive poorly you should have it checked as soon as you can.

Why would my turn signal flash faster on one side then the other?

Many times this is because you have a bad bulb, it could be in the front or rear. You should stop by your service center and get all your lights checked, and get that bulb replaced. When you have your car serviced all the lights should be checked to be sure all is working as it should, ask through to be sure your service center is doing that.

Why do I need to replace my water pump when I change my timing belt?

Many times the timing belt drives the water pump, so when changing the timing belt you are right at the water pump, and most timing belts get replaced at 90,000 to 110,000 miles the chances of that water pump lasting another 90,000 to 110,000 miles is very unlikely, so if the water pump fails you would have to pay all that labor again to get to the pump. As it turns out it’s much more cost effective to do it all at one time.

I need a tire repair, should I have it plugged or patched?

It’s always better to patch the tire from the inside, with a patch that fills the hole in the tread. Plugs have been known to come out while driving, or many times begin leaking. also if all you do is plug the tire it doesn’t give you a chance to inspect the inside to be sure there was no damage when the tire went flat. For yours and your family’s safety the tire should be patched.
