As a motorist in Burke, VA you should be able to feel certain differences in the way your car is handling.

Problems you can Feel

Steering—Trouble steering in a straight line or wandering could mean you might need a front-end alignment or possibly the steering components such as the idler or ball joints are worn. If your vehicle is pulling to one side or the other, this can be caused by something as simple as under-inflated tires or as unsafe as a misaligned front-end or worn steering components.

Rough Ride—Experiencing a rough ride may mean worn shock absorbers or other suspension components. Try bouncing your car up and down at each wheel and let go. Weak shocks will allow the car to bounce twice or more. If one corner of your vehicle is lower than the others, you might need to replace the spring. Hauling excessive heavy loads past your vehicles limit can damage the springs. Improperly balanced tires can also cause your car to vibrate and can wear steering and suspension components prematurely.

Brakes—Is your vehicle pulling to one side when you apply the brakes? Does the brake pedal sink to the floor when pressure is maintained? Do you hear or feel scraping or grinding when applying the brakes? These are all problems that you should be able to feel. If you are sensing any of these symptoms, you need to have the problem diagnosed and might need an automotive repair.

Engine—Having difficulty in starting your engine? Does the “check engine” light on the panel stay lit? Is your vehicle stalling or idling rough? Getting lousy gas mileage? Using excessive oil? Engine runs once you removed the key? This is telling you to take it in to your automotive repair shop and have an engine diagnostics test.

Transmission—A component failure or a simple disconnected hose or plugged filter can cause your transmission to perform poorly. Wiygul Automotive Clinic is experienced in diagnosing transmission problems. These repairs can be quite costly, so we recommend bringing your car into our shop and let us test the simplier things first and then go from there.
