Because it’s not necessary to replace car shocks or struts at specific mileage intervals, knowing how to identify the warning symptoms of bad struts and shocks is vital to your safety and the safety of your passengers. Shocks and struts wear out over time as your vehicle accumulates mileage. When they fail, the results can be dangerous. Replacing shocks and struts can improve stopping performance as well as increase vehicle stability and driver control.

Is there a difference between car shocks and struts? The terms shock and strut are often used interchangeably so drivers often are confused as to what is needed on their vehicle. To add to the confusion, some vehicles have struts on the front axle and shocks on the rear. Even though a shock and a strut do the same basic job on a vehicle, i.e., damping the movement of the spring and stopping oscillation and bounce, they are completely different parts. A shock cannot be used to replace a strut and a strut cannot be used to replace a shock.

Are you noticing any symptoms of bad struts or car shocks? If you are having problems, call your professional auto mechanic to schedule an inspection of your vehicle now.

How disappointing, you get in your car in a hurry to go somewhere and it will not start! There is never a convenient time for this to happen. The most common culprit is a dead or dying car battery. There are usually signs or symptoms prior to the battery finally not being able to start your vehicle.

Here are 3 common warning signs of a dying car battery:

  1. The engine cranks but doesn't start. When you turn on the ignition the engine barely turns over and the vehicle lights and accessories are very dim. After a few cranks, the battery can’t even turn the engine over at all.
  2. The engine will not crank or turn over at all. When turning the key in the ignition, the starter just makes a clicking noise and is unable to turn the engine over. The lights and other electrical accessories do not work at all.
  3. Jumpstarting doesn’t work. The battery has to be repeatedly jumped to start the engine but won’t hold a charge from the alternator for any length of time.
Be sure to watch out for the signs of a dying car battery. Before problems start happening with your vehicle, consider a car battery replacement.
