How to Be Prepared for a Potential Roadside Emergency


While it may be impossible to prepare for all things that could go wrong with your vehicle, making certain you act a certain way when the car is disabled can go a long way in getting you home safely.

What if your brakes are making noise?

To brake your car, the pads or drums are pushed against the wheel hub to create friction. If enough friction is generated, then your car will come to a stop. The action of using your brakes causes wear on both the brake pad or drum and the wheel hub. The result for the wheel hub is a shiny surface that gradually wears down no matter what type of material is used in the pads.

Your brake pads are designed to give you an aural warning that you need to replace them. Engineers have built in an indicator, a tiny metal…

When the temperature gauge on the dashboard rises, the engine is overheating. The most common reason involves insufficient coolant levels. Check the reservoir, hoses, and radiators for possible leaks. However, it may just be that coolant needs added. A malfunctioning radiator or radiator fan might also be the problem. Other things to look for include a damaged or a collapsed hose. A worn thermostat is another common cause of overheating.

At the first indication of increased engine heat, get your vehicle into our service center in Toronto to have the problem checked...

Tackle Towing Tasks More Easily by Equipping Tires With Practical Specs

Tire specs must be considered when picking products for a truck or another towing vehicle. The most important specs that can impact how an automobile operates during towing situations are the diameter and the load index. If you want to tackle towing routines quickly, the speed spec is also worth considering during the scouting process.

In order to drive while effectively towing heavy cargo, the tires on a vehicle must be large. When all tires have many treads, they can easily generate traction when power is needed to successfully tow items over steep hills and throughout rough...
