The "check engine" light is part of your car's so-called onboard diagnostics (OBD) system. Since the 1980s, computers increasingly have controlled and monitored vehicle performance, regulating such variables as engine speed (RPM), fuel mixture, and ignition timing. In some cars, the computer also tells the automatic transmission when to shift.
Your vehicle's brakes consist of five main components: brake pads, rotors, calipers, lines, and a master cylinder. They are probably the most important part of your car. Seriously, brakes aren't something to play around with. If your car is having a braking problem, whether it's weak brakes, a mushy pedal, grinding sounds - whatever your brake problem is, you need to repair it as soon as possible.
Some typical symptoms of engine problems could be; Excessive smoke from tailpipe; excessive oil consumption; knocking or tapping sounds; low oil pressure; low compression; water mixing in oil; oil getting into the air cleaner and/or radiator, also Normal mileage wear and tear; poor maintenance; lubrication problems; excessive overheating.
Rust is the No. 1 enemy of exhaust systems, but it is by no means the only one. For example, bottoming out over bumps can cause physical damage to car parts; mufflers can get clogged by internal parts coming loose; and a faulty oxygen sensor. Despite widespread use of aluminized steel and stainless steel for exhaust system components over the last 20 years, rust is still a major cause of exhaust system problems, and not just in cold-weather climates, where road salt is commonly used. With many U.S. roads in rough shape these days, a pothole or rock may finish off what the rust doesn’t; jarring exhaust system parts loose or poking holes in them.
Your car's suspension system is an intricate network of cooperating components designed to give you a smooth, even, stable ride. Since the suspension is ground zero when it comes to road abuse, the parts wear out, and even break. If your car doesn't seem to ride like it used to, you may want to get it checked out.
