Mechanical failures are a factor in all auto accidents, in most cases, the mechanical failures can be attributed to normal wear or a lack of proper vehicle maintenance. Although mechanical failures are involved in only a small percentage of all auto accidents, they still represent a risk factor. So why take unnecessary chances? The risk of having an auto accident due to mechanical failure can be greatly reduced by taking better care of your car.
Electrical problems can be a frustrating task, but it does not have to be if you keep a few simple rules in mind, Every circuit needs a power source; most electrical devices require a minimum voltage to function correctly and all circuits require continuity. Consequently, most electrical problems are caused by low voltage (or no voltage), excessive resistance or a loss of continuity.

Good ride control depends on the condition of the shock absorbers and struts. Motorists expect better handling performance and ride quality in today's cars, and may notice subtle changes in ride control. When ride control fails to meet expectations, repairs or upgrades may be needed. Repairs are required when parts are broken, bent, worn out or do not meet specifications. Upgrades, on the other hand, may be the way to go if the original shocks, struts or springs are inadequate for the application.

Engine noise is usually a symptom that something may be wrong with your motor. All engines make some operating noise, but when you hear an unusual noise or excessive noise coming from under the hood, it usually means trouble. A clicking or tapping noise that gets louder when you rev the engine is probably "tappet" or upper valvetrain noise caused by one of several things: low oil pressure, excessive valve lash, or worn or damaged parts.
Brakes are an essential component in every vehicle. Properly maintaining and repairing your car's brakes and brake systems not only ensures that you can safely stop your vehicle, it can also help you avoid more costly damage and subsequent repairs. Squealing, grinding, pulsations or vibrations when the brake pedal is applied or Loss of pressure on the brake pedal are signals that indicate brake repairs are needed.
The most likely cause of an automotive air conditioner cooling problem is no refrigerant in the system. If the refrigerant has escaped past a leaky compressor or O-ring seal, leaked out of a pinhole in the evaporator or condenser, or seeped out through a leaky hose, the leak needs to be identified and repaired before the system is recharged.
