Why do I have so much vibration in my car when idling at a light?

This can be caused by a number of things, a poor running engine with a miss fire, a bad idle control system, but the most common would be bad engine mounts, as the mounts go bad you begin to feel the normal engine vibration coming through the chassis. It’s not good to leave this go as other parts under the hood begin to vibrate and can become damaged. The mounts will have to be replaced to stop the vibration.

At low speeds my steering wheel shakes, what could be the problem?

The most common problem would be a tire issue, if one of the tires is beginning to separate or has a bubble in the tread it will cause the steering wheel to shake. This is a very serious situation and needs to be addressed as soon as possible, a tire in this condition can fail completely and leave you stuck on the road, or worse.

A stone hit my windshield and cracked it what do I do next?

First call you service center they can either have a glass company come to their shop and replace the glass or in many cases the glass company can come right to your home and replace it. In many states including Florida there is no deductible on windshield so your insurance company will take care of the whole thing.

My check engine light is on, but my mechanic told me don’t worry about it. Is that right?

If your mechanic is telling you don’t worry about a check engine light, you might be best advised to find a new mechanic.  If your check engine light is on there is a problem, it may be hard to find and it may not be something that will make your car break down, but there is still a problem. If the lights on and you have another failure you will have no way of knowing. If the engine light is on it needs to be repaired.

I clean my battery and a week later there is corrosion back on the terminals, why is this happening?

Two things could be going on here, first if you don,t clean the terminals completely the corrosion will return rather quickly, so be sure you remove the cables and use a battery cleaning product to completely clean the battery.The other thing that happens is the battery seal around the post fails and the acid comes right up the post and begins to corrode right after you have cleaned it, in this case the battery will need to be replaced.  A note please be very careful around a corroded battery a spark can cause the battery to explode!  It may be best to take your car to a shop for a battery service.

Is it better to have my car towed on a flat bed truck or a regular tow behind truck?

If you should find yourself in a situation where you need to be towed, it would always be better to have your car on a flat-bed truck. I think it’s safer then being dragged behind, there is less chance of damage to your car by the tow truck itself. There may be times that the tow behind truck will have to be used, if the driver is well-trained it is a safe way to have your car towed.
