wheel allignment Understanding Wheel AlignmentThe wheels on automobiles do not point straight ahead.  They are mounted, or “aligned”, at specific angles slightly offset from straight ahead. This is done to stabilize the steering of the car and to reduce tire wear.  Depending on the vehicle, this alignment involves Camber (inward or outward tilt of the wheels when looking head on), Caster (wheel tilt front or back looking from the side) and Toe-in/out (looking down at the wheels from above). The adjustments are measured in small fractions of an inch and require specialized alignment equipment for automotive technicians to adjust. (more…)

automatic transmission oil How often should you change your automatic transmission fluid?Like other automotive fluids, the transmission fluid in your car deteriorates over time.  Frequent stop-and-go city driving and trailer towing will accelerate the deterioration too.

So, when do you change it? A lot of mechanics say it should be done at least every 50,000 miles. However, the manufacturer’s maintenance schedule for many automatic transmissions doesn’t call for fresh fluid until 100,000 miles or, with some Ford transmissions, even 150,000 miles.  It clearly depends on the car.
