making simple car repairs on your own
My husband was nice enough to teach me how to do a lot of things to keep my car running well without having to rely so much on him or our mechanic. This all started when I couldn't get him to change the oil on my car after buying the filter and oil to do it. Weeks had passed and he still hadn't changed my oil, so I went online, looked up a video about how to do it, and got busy doing it myself. An hour later, my oil was changed and he didn't have to do a thing. If you are interested in learning how to do things to your car on your own, my blog is the place to start.
Owning a vehicle can be expensive. Beyond the purchase price of your vehicle, you also have to pay for upkeep and maintenance on your vehicle as well. When it comes to taking care of your vehicle, there are a few things that you can do to save money.
#1 Watch Your Tires
Keep a close eye on your tires. Pay attention to the way that your tires wear down. Irregular wear patterns on your vehicle are a sign that something else is wrong.
If you have had a fender bender with another vehicle and don't think the damages are worth reporting the accident to your insurance company and taking your car for repairs, think again. Even a minor fender bender can cause significant problems with mechanical parts in your car that you may not realize until later down the road when your car breaks down. Here's what you need to know.
Report the Fender Bender to Your Insurance Company
Not every part of a car is integral to its operation. Some parts exist for purely cosmetic reasons, think spoilers, while other parts of a car exist purely to help protect your car's auto body from extensive damage in collisions. These type of parts are called crash parts, and they are imperative to ensuring that during minor crashes your car's inner workings don't incur debilitating devastation. After an accident, when you are getting collision repair for your car, your insurance agency might want you to use aftermarket crash parts in your car's repair.
