When your auto repair mechanic starts talking about needed auto repair services, do you need an interpreter? Most vehicle owners want to understand what type of auto repair needs to be performed on their vehicle BEFORE any work starts. By understanding a few basic automotive terms, you will be better able to discuss the details of the auto repair services recommended by your auto repair technician.
Here are a simple description of a few common auto repair services that you will want to understand:
>Oil filter change – A clean oil filter is vital to the health of your car and is typically replaced during an oil change. The filter cleans the oil while it circulates through the engine.
>Distributor – The distributor is the component of your car’s ignition system that delivers the electrical voltage to each of the spark plugs in the right order and in the right amount.
>Brake fluid – Brake fluid is one of your vehicle’s most important fluids, used in the hydraulic brake system, which is activated when you step on the brake pedal.
>Radiator — The radiator is part of your vehicle’s cooling system and keeps the motor cool by allowing liquid to run through a series of channels that are exposed to the vehicle’s air ducts.
>Tune-up — A regular tune-up (otherwise known as the maintenance schedule) will ensure that your vehicle will start easier, run smoother, improve fuel efficiency, restore lost power, and lower exhaust emissions.
Don’t be afraid to talk to your auto repair mechanic about preventative maintenance for your vehicle. Do your research about the various components and fluids in your car or truck that need to be serviced periodically!
