Grinding or Squeaking Brakes
Your brakes are like many other moving parts on your vehicle – they wear down over a designated period of time. The braking system is one of the most important safety systems on your vehicle, so you don’t want to have them fail at the wrong moment. Squeaking and grinding brakes mean that they’re not at their best and should be replaced immediately.
Sputtering Engine System
Your engine runs at its best when air and fuel mix properly and burn in the combustion chamber of your vehicle. Many moving parts help this process work properly, but they often aren’t the main cause of a misfiring or sputtering engine. The common problem causer is the fuel and ignition system components, and we recommend you replace them as stated by your manufacturer.
Steering Wheel Shaking
If your vehicle has a shaking steering wheel while driving, the cause is often bad wheel bearings or a damaged suspension. It might happen after starting the vehicle or beginning to drive if so. If it happens at higher speeds, the issue is likely balance and tire based. Have a professional mechanic inspect the vehicle to find the source of the problem.
