Auto Brake Replacement: Tips and Common Practices

Auto Brake Replacement: Tips and Common Practices - Knowing when you need a brake replacement is not only crucial to your safety but also to the overall value of your car. Practicing routine maintenance on your car or bringing it to professionals who can diagnose and repair any automotive problem is important all year long but particularly in the winter months when road conditions deteriorate. Your brake rotors and brake pads provide the necessary force to slow and stop your vehicle, hence why brake replacement is extremely important.

How Do I Know if my Brakes Need to be Replaced?

There are several signs that your brakes rotors or brake pads need to be replaced or need service. If you feel a pulse on your brake pedal, vibration in the steering wheel or hear a clanking, thumping or grinding noise when pressure is applied to the pedal, it may be time to bring your car in for service. Another sign of wear on brakes is if they grab slightly which will cause one of the wheels to stop short and skid.

Will There be Signs of Wear on my Brakes?

Under normal circumstances, brake rotors should appear and feel very smooth. If you can see or touch grooves on the rotor, it is time to replace them. Be wary of brake pads that are completely worn out - if this occurs, there will be metal on metal contact, which can damage the rotor immensely.

Can I Check my Brakes at Home?

Yes, if you wish to check your brakes and brake pads before bringing your car to your local automotive professional, there are a few things to look for. The first test is to check for pulsation. Simply apply slight pressure to your brakes as you are traveling at about 30 mph. If all is normal, pressing the brake should feel smooth and there should be no pulsation. If you do feel something out of the ordinary, your rotors may be warped and need to be replaced. Another test is to wait for your car and engine to cool completely. Then remove your front wheel and use a tape measure to check to pad thickness. If the pad is down to 1/8 inch thick, bring your car in to have the brakes serviced.

Before the cold and ice on the roads set in, be sure to assess your own brakes and be weary of any noise or vibration that feels out of the norm. If you think that your car is in need of a brake replacement, trust your vehicle care to your local auto repair shop where the professionals can check your brakes, rotors and pads to make sure that your car is running (and stopping) smoothly and safely.

Automotive Advice

As the technology inside cars gets better and better, our vehicles become longer-lasting and more reliable, but this convenience comes at a price. All cars absolutely need regular maintenance, and there was a time when this was impossible to ignore: attempting to drive a car for long without a proper tune-up would cause obvious signs of distress in no time. Today's cars, on the other hand, will often keep on running fairly smoothly even as their insides succumb to wear and tear, which is a big relief to someone with a busy lifestyle but also makes it a little bit too easy to forget about the maintenance a car requires. A car might run for a long time without proper attention, but eventually something will go wrong, and it will be a much more expensive and time-consuming problem than it needed to be. We all know how easy it is to ignore the need for maintenance, so here is some advice on the most important aspects of good car care.

The common wisdom is that you need to get regular oil changes, and this is absolutely true, but even those who take care to follow this advice are often missing out on its full benefit. With the speed and convenience of rapid oil change outlets, fewer and fewer people are getting their oil checked and changed by actual auto repair facilities, and therein lies a problem: one of the main reasons that regular oil changes are so important is that they give your mechanic a chance to spot any other problems that exist or are developing in your vehicle. This is especially important for people who do a lot of their driving in rural areas: dirt, mud and salt all accelerate the problems that plague vehicles.

One of the biggest differences with service from a mechanic is that you can get your filters checked alongside your oil change. Filters are highly problem-prone and yet they are also highly overlooked by car owners, even though regular oil changes won't do much if the filtration is bad. In general, filters will get around 30,000km before they need to be replaced, but if you aren't getting at least some of your regular oil checks done by a mechanic, they might go twice that long without anybody even looking at them.

The other important thing that a mechanic will check is your brakes. Once again, while cars used to make even the smallest brake problems impossible to ignore, modern vehicles will keep working until the brakes are worn down to steel-on-steel without many drivers even noticing. An oil change is the perfect time to check for deterioration and any other problems in the brake line, which is vital not only to the health of your car but also to your own safety and peace of mind while driving it.

In addition to these primary concerns, there are all the little things a mechanic will do. Details like door lubrication, light checks, tire pressure checks and an overall assessment of the vehicle both inside and out are essential to preventing expensive or dangerous problems in the future, and they also keep your car running at peak quality and efficiency. This in turn provides a superior driving experience: a car that is more responsive and simply feels better from behind the wheel.

A vehicle that never gets real maintenance is like a ticking time bomb, ready to become a major inconvenience without warning-maybe at the worst possible time. Finding a good mechanic means shopping around, checking referrals and doing some research. With regular care by someone who has the right expertise, most cars will pretty much last forever.

Your First Car In USA  Tautan
Your mobility depends too much on your possession of a private vehicle. You may go for a car, motorcycle or truck as your own vehicle. But due to severe weather conditions in many regions it is not a good idea to depend on motorcycles all the time. It is also not a good idea to have a truck or SUV as they drink lot of gas and the maintenance is high. Somewhere in the middle and perfectly positioned vehicle for Desi would be a car. There are various types of cars to suite your need.

What you should have

If you are a single man and do not depend primarily on your car for commuting to your work, then go for anything as you wish.

There are coupes which have capacity for 4 persons but only two big doors. Primarily these cars are designed keeping in view for two, driver and one passenger. The other model is the sedan which has capacity for 5 and has 4 doors. This can also be called a family car. Depending on the size of the car, they are categorized as Compact, Mid-sized and Full. Compact cars are very small in size and have a good mileage per gallon too. Some manufacturers even make two seated compact cars. The power of the compact car is also little less than the cars of other categories. There are other cars that have powerful engines and are rated as sports cars.

On the contrary, if you have a big family and need more space in your vehicle, then go for van/SUV. But I wont suggest this idea to people who have just come to US, before/after marriage and don't have any kids.

Besides, it is always your dream and desire that makes you to go for a particular type and model. But before deciding upon something, you must give a thought to the other factors like, the mileage, sitting capacity, transmission, trunk capacity, engine power, ease of driving/safety, interior, power doors and anti-theft devices. Also your affordability plays a major role in purchasing a vehicle.

Do you have a driver license yet? It is most important to have one before going for a vehicle. Various states have different rules for issuing drivers license. You can logon to Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) sites to know about the pre-requisites and methods of getting one driver license for your state. Normally it involves a written examination, minor vision test and a road test.

The never-ending comparison

Now you have to decide whether to buy a new car or a used car. I wont suggest you any thing or force you to go for what I think is right, but you must know the good and bad things involved in each.

Used Cars

* They are cheaper.

* They may be old.

* They might have more than one owner.

* They could be purchased from private parties or authorized dealers.

* They might have gone through serious maintenance/repair in the past.

* They might have gone through an accident in the past.

* Some parts/components are just about to die.

* There may not be enough warranty/guaranty on some expensive parts.

* The mileage may not be good.

* They may need more maintenance.

* They may not be reliable for long drives.

* Resale may be a headache.

New Cars

* They are not cheap.

* They are covered under manufacturer/dealer warranty.

* Their fuel efficiency must meet the specification.

* There is the satisfaction of owning a new car.

* Easy to get a finance for new car than a used car.

* No need to worry about the engine, body, suspension, tyre, batteries and interior conditions.

* Insurance premium may be higher.

* Can only be bought from an authorized dealer.

There are many other things that can be discussed as advantages and disadvantages under both the headings. However, I don't want to focus on them right now. If you are convinced to buy a new car, then go for it.

Your target

Now it is the time for you to decide the Make, Model and Type of your car. In US you will find hundreds of Make and Models (no Hind Motors/Maruti cars of course). From a Desi prospect I would say it is better to start with Honda/Toyota/Nissan. These Japanese car manufacturers know our requirement and never ditch us on the highways. The engines are good and prices are low. They run long enough before giving up. The life of a Honda/Toyota is considered to be 300K miles. But the look and interior designs are not at par with the American/European cars.

Buying a New Car

Take a cup of coffee, chat with your friends and go through some reviews before you decide upon the make model and color of your first dream car in USA. Check for the existing/upcoming models of your car by logging onto the sites. Select the color and interior and look at the car through the simulator. The most important thing that you must consider here is that, when the next model is going to be released. If it is very soon, then don't go for it, because after you buy your car, you will see the newer model in the market and the resale value of your car will fall drastically.

Cars with automatic transmission and power window have good resale value. ABS and anti-theft devices are added advantages. Leather interior is as per your wish.

Now you have all the details in your mind and the budget is also finalized. Next step is to study the finance market and look for the bank/credit union who gives the best APR. Also don't forget to decide upon your auto insurance. Find out a good insurance company and try to get a quote from them. The premium varies from place to place. With all these things set up, go to the Auto-Mall of your city. Go for a test drive for the car you have already decided. Beware of the car sales representatives. They will always try to sale you the most expensive car they have. But you shouldn't deviate from your decision. Try to bargain with them for a possible reduction in their margin and ask for extra accessories.

What is the status of the loan? Have you arranged one or you want the dealer to make some arrangements for you? Always try to bring down the APR. If you are very new to US and don't have any credit score, you may not get a good APR. However, dont worry about the APR right now. You can always refinance the loan with a better APR after you buildup the credit history after few months of repayment of the loan.

Once the deal is final, you need to sign some papers and then provide the Insurance details if you have. Otherwise, you could also provide the insurance agents phone number and the sales representative will talk to the insurance agent to get the car insured before leaving their premises (dont worry too much for the insurance premiums now, it is important to get your car insured before you drive out of the dealers premises, however you can easily change your insurance later, if you find a better one). In case you didn't get any insurance, you can always go for binder insurance, but they are quite expensive, but you can always cancel them in the middle once you establish your insurance with somebody else and get the refund for the unused portion of your premium.

The next thing is to make the financial paper work. You will be guided to the dealers accounts department and one of the accountants will assist you in finalizing the loan and payment for the car. At that time they will try to sale an extended warranty for another 3 years after the manufacturers warranty. It is you who will decide for that. Don't listen to them, but evaluate it being unbiased. They will try to sale so many other things like paint guard, gap insurance etc. I would suggest not to go with all these things except paint-guard.

After everything is over, they will apply for the vehicle registration/license plate to DMV on your behalf and give you the temporary ownership license (stuck to the windshield of your car). As far as I know, they wash the car and give you a full tank as a compliment before you drive your car back home.

New cars don't give you much trouble as long as you do all the regular oil change and maintenance in time.

Buying a Used Car

Used cars are good but not as new cars. They are much cheaper than the new cars, but at the cost of your peace of mind. You can buy used cars from either a private party or from any dealer. Here also you have to decide your budget and the make, model and year of the car that you need. Also the other main factor is the odometer reading.

There are many sites that give you the links for used cars for sale. You can also refer to the local news papers for any such advertisement. There are places in some cities where people come with their cars for auction/sale. Since you are new, don't go to such places. Rather get contact information from news paper ads or internet. Get the details of the car like make, model and year of the car, miles it has run, condition of batteries, tires and engine condition etc.

Now go to Kelly Blue Book ( or Edmund ( and try to evaluate the car. KBB will ask you some question depending upon the private trading or buying from dealer. After you enter data about the private trading car, it will show you an approximate value of the car.

Private Party

If you are buying a used car from a private party, then you need to be more cautious about certain things like, the engine condition, the body condition, the interior and the accident/maintenance history of the car. Don't go for cars that have already run almost 300K miles (for Honda and Toyota). You can start locating for used cars for sale from various sources like, news papers, local ads and internet. After locating the availability near your place, prepare your matrix.

* Call each of them to fix an appointment for trial.

* Get the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) from the owner.

* Check for the approximate cost of the car using KBB or EDMUND sites.

* Compare the advertised price with the approximate cost that you arrived at.

* Use the VIN to find out accident/maintenance history from and check for any major incident. There will be a registration fee for, go for the one month pack.

* Talk to a mechanic for pre-purchase inspection of the vehicle. Mechanics charge around $50 per car. It is better to go to some brand names like Pep-Boys. They are good and reliable, but you may need to take an appointment beforehand.

* Go to the owner, see the car physically (for any visible dents, body color, torn airbag containers and interior) and then drive it with the owner.

* Take the car to the mechanic and have it inspected.

* (All the cars need a timing belt replacement after running for around 100K miles, so if the car is around or over 100K, then you need to figure out if the timing belt has been replaced, this information could be obtained from the CarFax report too. One thing you must remember that, in US, the auto spare parts are not that expensive, but the labor charge to install them is too high.)

* The mechanic will give you a report, in which it will indicate the current condition of the car and what needs to be fixed with a rough estimation.

* Check for the vehicle registration, is it current?

* Is the vehicle smog certified?

With the Kelly Blue Book report, CarFax report and the mechanics report, you can have a good bargain with the owner. If you really like the car and every thing looks OK to you, then start bargaining. Don't focus more on the tires/batteries, they are not that important as the engine.


Once you have decided to buy the car, talk to the owner about the payment and mode of payment (check or cash). The owner has to give you a pink slip indicating that you paid for the car and it is yours now. He cant simply lodge a complaint with the police saying you have stolen his car. It is his duty to inform the DMV office about the sale and transfer of title. You should also apply to DMV for transferring the title to your name. For registration, you will need the pink slip, the insurance (get one immediately) and smog certification. After you apply for the transfer of the vehicle registration into your name, you are the proud owner of the car.

It is too cumbersome to buy a used car from a private party, sometimes it is too risky and in all the cases it is damn cheaper. For some unlucky guys it might have resulted in spending huge money on maintenance the next day. But it is not always true. However, you are supposed to visit the mechanic frequently and spend lot of time there.

Buying from Dealer

The next best thing that you can do is to buy a used car from a dealer. It may not be as cheaper as buying from private party, but 100 times more reliable. Even some dealers give warranty on the used cars they sale. They buy the used cars, clean them up, do a thorough checking of the engine and repair any damages, dents etc before putting them on sale. You don't have to take the car to a mechanic for inspection, worry about the smog certification. But never forget to check the approximate price through KBB and have a CarFax report handy before making a deal with the dealer. Normally, good dealers don't keep cars for sale that have any major issues like bad accident history, salvaged title etc.

Go to the dealer, talk to the sales representative about your purpose. He/she will show you all the different used cars they have that fits your requirement as well as your budget. Once you have selected the model, make and color, go for a test drive (don't forget to check the odometer reading). If everything feels OK to you, then go to the dealers office and access their computer to logon to KBB for approximate pricing as well as to CarFax for accident/maintenance history for that car. Some dealers even do this for free. Now with all these things handy, start the bargain. You must always consider the worry free deal with the worth of the vehicle you are paying for. You may end up paying a little more than that of a private party deal, but there wont be any worries after you buy the car. If there will be any problem with the car (which is covered under warranty), you can always comeback to the dealer for having it fixed for free. The dealer may also arrange a loan for you and take care of the other formalities like title transfer etc. You will save a lot of time/worries in this. Time is important and costly in this country. So it is your call again.

After you finalize the deal, it follows the same process as a new car purchase. So finish all paper work and drive the car safely back home.


* If you own an old used car that needs maintenance and the mechanic gives you a list of jobs to be done, then do all of them once. That way you may save a lot of labor charge.

* As per my experience, buying a new car is always better than buying a used car from a dealer and buying a used car from a dealer is always safer than buying a used car from a third party.

* It seems to be a huge amount in the beginning to buy a new car. But if you compare the money spent for new (repay the loan) and used car (repair/maintenance), then over a period of 3 years they will almost equate with each other. So, why not to enjoy the ride of a new car.

How To Repair A Leaky Sunroof

How To Repair A Leaky Sunroof - A leaking sunroof is an annoying problem that is common in vehicles. The good thing is that you can easily fix the problem by following these steps:

The first thing that you should do is to clean the roof using a non-abrasive cleaner. You should open the sunroof to the vent position, but you should not let it slide backwards.
At this position you should wipe and clean the trough surrounding the sunroof using a wet cloth. The main aim of cleaning the trough is to remove the debris that might be preventing a tight seal between the trough and the sunroof's seal.

When cleaning, you should avoid using canned air. This is because the air can compress the blockage or burst the tubes apart deep within the pillars.

Once clean, you should inspect the seal thoroughly and take a look at any cracks that might be there. If you find cracks, you should consider replacing the seal. To replace the seal you should contact the car manufacturer or a repair shop to replace the seal.

In addition to checking the seal, you should also take a look at the drainage tubes. To check the tubes you should use a small cable or a coat hanger to gently probe the tubes. You should probe the first few inches of the tubes with the cable in order to check any clogs.
If the tubes are clogged, you should use a thin cable or coat hanger to unclog them. When cleaning, you should be cautious and only use a little pressure. This is because if you use a lot of pressure, you can easily disconnect the tubes causing more problems and be forced to spend more money than you are supposed to.

After doing this you should test the tubes if they are working by pouring a pitcher of water into each corner of the open sunroof.


These are the steps that you should follow when repairing a leaking sunroof. You should note that if the seal is cracked, you should contact a professional to repair the seal for you.
If you unclog the tubes and the sunroof still leaks, the blockage could be deep within the tubes and fixing of the problem would require disassembly of the vehicle. Since you might not be having the skills to disassemble the car, you should consider hiring a professional to do the work for you.
