Your brake pads are heroic performers, responsible for taking the brunt of the heat and pressure created during braking actions. Brake pads come in three basic varieties, including organic, sintered, and ceramic. All three of these brake-pad varieties are designed to be durable and tough, but like any other components, they are subject to occasional damage. In addition, they are also subject to gradual wear.

Why it’s Important to Inspect Your Belts and Hoses

Belts and hoses are like the "glue" that keep your vehicle's engine components working together. The air conditioning compressor, alternator, water pump, power steering, and other systems are usually linked together by one belt that provides timing and power.

Hoses connect each of these and many other components, transferring important fluids and air pressure that keeps your engine running. Over time, extreme fluid and air temperatures, mechanical movement, and general wear and tear take their toll on belts and hoses.

When Should You Inspect Your Car Tires?

The tires on your car will give warning signs when there is trouble. When you only pay attention to the tires on your car when they go flat, you are missing a chance to actually extend the life of the tire and make your ride safer. The best time to check the tread on the tires is every time you are about to go out for a drive.
