Common Electrical Issues That Impact your Vehicle
We've all been there. You get out to your car put the key in the ignition and nothing. If your car refuses to even turn over, it could be an issue with the battery. While we often associate dead batteries with mistakenly leaving out car lights on, there can be other issues that are draining the battery. For example, corrosion can speed up battery deterioration.
The car's alternator is responsible for charging the battery. It is the alternator's job to recharge the battery so that the battery can power other electrical components in your car such as the stereo, lights, and power locks and window. Often a malfunctioning alternator is mistaken for a dead or dying battery. If a problem with the alternators is not properly identified and diagnosed, it can lead to wasted money through the purchase of a new battery.
The starter of the car works in tandem with the battery and the alternator to get you where you need to go. It uses power from the battery to turn the vehicle. When a starter is beginning to weaken or fall into disrepair, drivers may notice a faint clicking sound or a slow or weakened start.
Our Mobile Mechanic service will work with you to not only diagnose and repair damage to your electrical system in your vehicle, we will also work with you to schedule maintenance of these components to keep your car running longer with limited issues. Proper inspection, diagnosis, and maintenance of the electric system of your car is a key to keeping your car healthy, d keeping you and your family safe. Proper diagnosis of electrical issues can save you money and time. Working with a trained mechanic to properly repair electrical issues with your car will increase the lifespan of your vehicle.
Car batteries should be replaced every four years, but in between the replacement, our mechanics can stretch the life by cleaning corrosion from the battery, recharging, and refilling essential liquids.
The alternator on your car should be replaced every three to four years. We can check to ensure you have a healthy voltage and replace less expensive pieces that will save you from a full replacement before the alternator's time.
The starter of your vehicle should be inspected every 5,000 miles. Just like your health, regular check-ups of your vehicle can catch small problems before they turn into serious, expensive issues.
Common Engine Repairs
The average car engine has over 14,000 parts. This means that there are close to 14,000 opportunities for something to go wrong. Our trained technicians are skilled at diagnosing and repairing all of the potential problems in your car's engine. They can tackle the most common engine problems, as well as the rarer issues too. Here is a list of the most common engine problems that our mechanics regularly experience: Blown head gasket, Oil Leaks, Engines that are producing smoke. The average car on the road today is 11 years old. This is good news for drivers because, ith the help of a good mechanic, your car can last much longer and save you money. Since consumers are working to stretch the lives of their vehicles, mechanics performing maintenance and replacing key parts of the engine help to keep the car running smoothly and safely. Here are some common engine part replacements that our technicians are trained to complete:
Intake manifold gaskets
Engine coolant temperature sensors
Maintain the Full Function of the Clutch
Aside from adjusting your driving style to reduce "riding the clutch", it is important to find a good mechanic who understands the manual transmission of cars and can work with you to identify clutch issues before they require full replacements. Common clutch maintenance procedures that mechanics will perform include:
Replacements to the drive shafts
Adjustments to various parts
Repairs to the clutch hydraulics system
Installation of clutch kits
Knowing the Signs of Clutch Wear and Tear
Before a clutch will need to be replaced, it will give the driver signs that it needs some TLC. Knowing the signs of clutch wear and tear can save the driver money in the long run. A trained mechanic can easily identify these signs and works to make small adjustments to the clutch before it needs a full replacement. Here are a few sure-fire signs your clutch is sending you because it needs some maintenance. These are all common problems that can plague a clutch, but if they are properly and quickly addressed by a certified mechanic, a full clutch replacement can be put off for as long as possible.
A car that has a worn out clutch plate may have a reduced pick up and the engine RPM will rise further than necessary. This can occur when the friction material that surrounds the plates have worn too thin and need to be replaced.
If your car shudders when you release the clutch, especially if you are driving at lower speeds, you may have contamination on a clutch plate.
Grinding Sound Or Chirping Sounds
Does your car give out a chirping or grinding sound when you press or release the clutch? This could be a sign of a worn clutch release baring.
Whether you are driving around town or traveling on long road trips
The braking system of a car is arguably one of the most critical components of keeping you safe and secure. Our mobile, trained technicians are certified to work on both foreign cars as well as domestic cars and can even perform brake work on commercial vehicles such as semi-automatic trucks. The entire brake system of a car is comprised of three main sections: the brakes, the rotors, and the brake pads. A good mechanic can identify signs and symptoms of wear and tear that will protect the driver from putting out unnecessary money in the long run by maintaining the systems for as long as possible.
Whether it is domestic or foreign vehicles
Brake repair is as much about maintenance as it about replacement and repairs. Our trained technicians can perform a brake system evaluation that will be the first step to identifying potential problems in your brake system and start you on the path to a safe, more secure vehicle.
Signs (Or Sounds) That your Brakes Need Care
The most common indicator that your brakes need to be assessed by a professional is if they are making more noise than usual. Listen carefully to what your brakes are trying to tell you, and get them assessed by a professional as soon as possible. Brake care and maintenance is key to expanding the life of your brakes and keeping you and your family safe from potential accidents. The certified technicians at 24 Hour Mobile Mechanic will work with you to develop a time where they can come to your home and complete the work that your vehicle needs.
If your brakes are rattling when you ease off of the brake pedal, you could need new brake pads. In general, brake pads should be replaced every 20,000 to 60,000 miles, with the front brakes needing a quicker replacement than the back brakes. Replacing brake pads on time will prevent more severe damage and more expensive brake work.
A high-pitched noise, similar to a screech, can be your brake system's way of calling out for help. This can be caused by a shim, which is a small, metal indicator that is designed to give you a warning when it is time to replace those brake pads. A screeching sound may indicate that maintenance and repairs can improve the brake system without a full overhaul of the system.
A grinding sound is potentially the most dangerous sound your brakes can make. If you press the brake pedal and your brakes feel and sound as if they are grinding to a halt, this could be an indication that your brake pads and rotors have been worn down to a dangerous point. The grinding is caused by direct contact between the caliper and the rotor disc. This needs to be addressed very quickly, for safety's sake.
For many, the health of their semi-truck (or tractor-trailer truck) is not just about having a vehicle that runs well and is reliable
It is about making sure your livelihood is taken care of. Whether you are an individual who has their own private semi-truck, or you are a business owner that owns and operates a fleet of semi-trucks, 24 Hour Mobile Mechanics can ensure that your truck (or trucks) are running at their maximum effectiveness. It is estimated that each individual trucker can put up to 45,000 miles on their truck over the course of each year. For this reason, it is so important to maintain the health of your semi truck with the help of a trained and certified professional. Our teams have experience with a wide variety of semi-trucks such as Peterbilts, Freightliners, Macks, and many more.
There are three key components to ensuring that your semi-truck (or tractor trailer) is operating in tip-top health: maintenance, repair and service.
All of the needs of the semi-automatic truck, from the brake repair to the engine servicing are not just about a size increase from their smaller domestic and foreign passenger vehicles. Working with semi-automatic trucks takes a certified professional with years of experience underneath his belt. Since semi-trucks are built to be on the road and not stuck inside of a garage, it is a great idea to call 24 Hour Mobile Mechanic and schedule a tune-up and diagnostic check to ensure that all the parts of the semi-truck are in peak condition for the road ahead. Since the mechanic will come right to you, there is no need to worry about spending even more time away from loved ones.
Semi-truck Breakdowns and How to Prevent Them
Two of the most common causes for a semi-trucks to break down are both closely connected to the intensive mileage put on these vehicles. Our certified mechanics suggest scheduling preventative maintenance checkups to address issues before they become serious problems. Brake issues and electronic malfunctions are the two most common causes of semi-truck breakdown. It takes a trained, certified mechanic to be able to properly diagnose, repair and maintain the health of a semi-truck. Go to the trained professionals at 24 Hour Mobile Mechanic to streamline your process.
Since the discs and drum brakes of a semi-truck are subjected to high temperatures and pressure on a regular basis, they tend to wear down more quickly than smaller vehicles. If the various brake components on semi-trucks are not properly maintained and repaired, they will require more expensive repairs down the road.
Though the electric system on semi-trucks is a much larger job than on personal vehicles, they still comprise of the same three basic systems: the battery, the alternator and the starter. A proper diagnosis of the problem can save the driver time and money.
How to Properly Maintain and Repair Your RV
When out on the road your RV becomes your home. There are numerous features, parts, and appliances that must be well-taken care of to ensure that while on the road, you are comfortable and everything remains in working order. However, sometimes things break, parts need to be replaced, and accidents happen. Here are a few tips to properly maintain and repair your RV when these issues arise.
Call a Professional
While you may consider yourself a handyman and can solve most issues on your own, calling a professional who is familiar with RV repair is ideal. RV technicians work with these vehicles daily and they know what to look for and how to properly fix most systems. Additionally, moving an RV can be a challenge and some professionals not only offer 24-hour repair, but will come to you — whether at your office, your home, or even the campground.
Make Repairs Immediately
When your RV needs repaired, it is important that you call a professional to make the repair as soon as possible. When you don't take care of issues immediately, it can lead to larger complications, costing you more time and money. It is never wise to procrastinate a vehicle repair.
Do Weekly Checks
Proper maintenance for your RV is a constant challenge. You should check certain areas on your RV such as tire pressure, fluid levels, and seals at least once a week —more for frequent use. Checking your tire pressure is particularly important as RV tires can lose at least 2 psi just from sitting for a week.
Keep Connections Tight
Whether you are going on a long trip or just pulling out your RV for the summer, one aspect of your RV that is often overlooked is the connection between your walls and the appliances. You want to ensure everything is tight and the appliances are hooked securely on the wall. Additionally, ensure that all appliances and systems, including your heater and AC unit, work well before heading out on a trip. If there are any issues, you will want to work with professionals to ensure all connections are correct and everything is working at its best.
Don't Forget the Brakes
Before you take your RV out on the road, it is wise to have a thorough brake evaluation. You want to ensure that the brake system, pads, and other critical parts are working well. When working with such critical functions on your vehicle, it is important professionals do the work. While you may try to do the work yourself, your own safety and that of your family is more important than saving a little money with a poor do-it-yourself job. Consider mechanic shops that employ ASE Certified technicians to ensure you are receiving the best repair job possible. If you want to explore and enjoy many adventures with your loved ones, you must treat your RV well. Your trips will be a success and with less stress if you keep your vehicle well-maintained and work with ASE technicians to quickly repair any issue that may come your way.
