All automotive manufacturers require regularly scheduled maintenance to keep your warranty valid, your vehicle safe, and to extend the life of your automobile. Details about your vehicle's regularly scheduled maintenance are available in your vehicle's owner's manual or you can call Auto Repair Station for all Original Manufacturer maintenance schedules.
|Heating and Cooling System
The cooling system circulates a fluid through pipes and passageways in the engine. As this liquid passes through the hot engine, it absorbs heat, which cools the engine. After the liquid leaves the engine, it passes through a radiator, which transfers the heat from the fluid to the air blowing through the radiator. Key system components include anti-freeze, cooling fans and the radiator.
|Air Conditioning System
Air conditioning (A/C) is the process of removing heat from matter. All matter above the temperature of 459 degrees contains energy in the form of heat. Heat always moves from hot to cold. The A/C system in your vehicle improves the efficiency of the process of moving heat. It uses three methods of removing heat from your car: Radiation, Conduction and Convection.
You need brakes to stop your vehicle and if they're not working properly, you could end up having a really bad day. Your vehicle has two types of brakes: disc brakes and drum brakes. Most new model vehicles are equipped with computer-controlled Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) and/or other traction control devices. This safety feature is designed to prevent wheel lock-up and skidding when you apply sudden pressure to your brake pedal.
A car's electrical system is made up of a web of connected wires, fuses and relay systems. Basic electrical wiring carries the current supplied by the car battery and directs it to various components. A system of fuses, which serve as a protection against electrical malfunctions, and relays, which redirect incoming electrical charges, comprise the heart and inner workings of a vehicle's electrical system.
