If your car sits outside all the time and you live in south Florida as I do, you will find that you replace them at least twice a year. The relentless sun attacks the material they are made of and you find that they are chattering on the glass or just not wiping as they should.

Most likely you have a wheel bearing going bad, if this is the case it will get louder and faster as you increase speed, another thing that can do this is a bad or cupped tire. Your service center will have to take a look they will be able to determine the cause.

Most of the time when this happens we will find a bad bulb on the side flashing faster. It may be the bulb itself or it could be a bad socket that the bulb plugs into. Your service center will have to check this for you and let you know what you need.

Most of the time if the engine light is flashing there is an engine miss fire this could be caused by a bad spark plug, plug wire, coil, fuel injector, as you can see there are many causes for this condition. We will have to get a scanner on it and diagnose the problem. It takes a skilled technician to come up with the exact problem.

If the water pump is driven by the timing belt then yes you should replace the water pump at the same time. The engine has to come apart just as far to do the pump as the belt and for the most part the water pump won’t last as long as that new timing belt, so if the pump fails you have to pay the labor all over again.

You may have a bad brake light switch, but most common we see that the plastic button that operates the switch falls apart, the repair is simple but it can be hard to get to so you will be better off taking it to your service center for repair.

A cabin filter, filters out contaminates that blow into the cabin of your car or truck. You know when you let that cool air blow right in your face and you take a deep breath, well it’s the filter that cleans that air, pretty important! This is a picture of what was caught by this filter. This may not be the norm but it is an actual filter changed in our shop.

Many times if all the lights work and there is a clicking sound when you try to start the problem will be in the starter itself. Your service center can run some tests to be sure.

Many times we find that someone has put the jumper cables on backwards, even if it’s just for an instant. If this happens you will have blown the main fuse, which is a problem but it would be a much larger problem if there were no fuse to protect all the components in your car. Your service center will have to replace this for you, it is normally bolted into the system so it’s not just a quick replacement.

It’s a good idea to at least have them check the balance, a tire that is a little out of balance on the rear you may not feel, but move that tire to the front and it will shake the steering wheel and feel uncomfortable. Then you have to go back and have it corrected.
