Car Troubleshooting Tips

Car trouble doesn't always mean major repairs.

Here are some common causes of trouble and techniques to help you and your technician find and fix problems:

  • Alternator

     —  Loose wiring can make your alternator appear defective. Your technician should check for loose connections and perform an output test before replacing the alternator.

  • Battery

     —  Corroded or loose battery terminals can make the battery appear dead or defective. Your technician should clean the terminals and test battery function before replacing the battery.

  • Starter

     — What seams to be a defective starter actually may be a dead battery or lose connection. Ask your technician to check all connections and test the battery before repairing the starter.

  • Muffler

     — a loud rumbling noise under your vehicle indicates a need for a new muffler or exhaust pipe.

  • Tune-up

     — The old-fashioned "tune-up" may not be relevant to your vehicle. Check out the recommendations in your owner's manual. A few parts, other than belts, spark plugs, hoses and filters, may need to be replaced on newer vehicles.
