What Are the Signs of Worn Shocks and Struts?

What Are the Signs of Worn Shocks and Struts?

Worn-out shocks and struts are not as obvious as a flat tire or wheel. They wear out gradually, which is why it is crucial to know the signs to look out for. What Are Shocks and Struts? Shocks and struts are part of the suspension system, which stabilizes your car, enhancing control as you turn, accelerate, brake, or drive over uneven surfaces. While they both have similar functions, they are pretty different. Shocks are independent components, while struts combine other features and shocks to make a single strong unit. Most vehicles can do fine with either one of the two or a combination of the two. Given that shocks and struts wear out gradually, here are the symptoms that indicate they are worn and need to get replaced. Bumpy Ride Shocks and struts control the movement of coil springs, preventing the wheels from moving up and down too much. If the shocks or struts are worn out, the tires become unstable, resulting in a bumpy ride. If you feel that you cannot control your car a ... read more

Extend Tire Life with These 6 Simple Tips

There are few things more annoying than having to buy new tires for your car, especially when it happens sooner than you expected. The dealership rates their tires as having a 60,000-mile lifespan.

The truth is those original tire mileage ratings are only somewhat accurate if you take perfect care of your wheels, tires, brakes, suspension, transmission and every other system that affects your tire treads.

Here are 6 tips from Fox Run Auto: 1. Get Your Tires Rotated No matter what kind o ... read more

The 9 Most Common Causes for the Check Engine Light

The 9 Most Common Causes for the Check Engine Light

As you may or may not already know, your vehicle's "check engine" light is essentially a catch-all warning light. It can be tripped by a number of different sensors and systems within your car. Today's modern vehicles with more advanced computer systems may be able to give you a more specific notification along with the check engine light coming on, but older vehicles will not be quite as helpful. Here are 9 of the most common causes for the check engine light being illuminated in your car: 1. Loose Fuel Cap This one is actually very common. Sometimes you don't quite screw the gas cap on all the way (listen for that click) or maybe you forgot to replace it altogether. Either way, it's an easy problem to look for and fix. 2. Oxygen Sensor Your emissions system will have oxygen sensors that are there to detect exhaust issues. If there is an emissi ... read more
