Wheel alignment is standard car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles of the wheels so that they are set to the manufacturer’s specifications. The main purpose is to let the suspension and the steering systems operate at their desired angles in order to reduce tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and not all mechanics get it right. To have experts handle your car’s alignment, visit Wyoming Automotive.
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly decelerating by automatically modulating the brake pressure during an emergency stop. With this system, the wheels are able to maintain traction with the road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and repaired by experts. At Wyoming Automotive, we have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and repair your faulty ABS to keep you safe.
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or stopping a vehicle usually by means of friction. In short, a brake inhibits your car’s motion. It lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you choose. If your vehicle’s brakes are having issues, consider having them worked on. Brake experts at Wyoming Automotive can work on your car’s brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.
A chassis is the car’s internal framework that supports the body and other parts like the wheels, engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working vehicle, have your car’s chassis checked for defects. At Wyoming Automotive, there are experienced undercar service providers who can work on your chassis.
The differential transfers the engine power to the wheels. One important function of the differential is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them to rotate at different speeds. When turning, the outer wheels travel a larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at different speeds during a turn and this is where the differential comes in to help. To make sure your vehicle’s differentials are working properly, have them checked regularly. Contact Wyoming Automotive today for differentials examination and servicing.
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping used to guide exhaust fumes away from the engine – usually to the rear of the vehicle. A properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds better, it is better – for you, your car, and the environment. Wyoming Automotive has expert technicians to service your car’s exhaust system.
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that connects the engine and the transmission to the wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of the powertrain less the engine and transmission. Failure of the driveline means that the car could not move since energy cannot be transmitted from the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure that your car’s driveline is regularly inspected and serviced. At Wyoming Automotive, you can have the driveline serviced by experts.
As tires get older, they lose traction and deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a better performing vehicle, you need to make sure the tires are in good condition. For all your tire needs, contact Wyoming Automotive today.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do this by converting kinetic energy to another form of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when turning. To have your vehicle’s shocks diagnosed and repaired, visit Wyoming Automotive today.
At Wyoming Automotive, we want our Cincinnati customers to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don’t hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 513-821-8408, and we will be happy to speak with you.
Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you’ll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that you’re ruining your rotors or drums! You should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle’s wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a “like-new” condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. Wyoming Automotive will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact Wyoming Automotive as soon as possible.
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don’t need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.
Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at Wyoming Automotive about when it’s time for a brake fluid flush.
Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don’t stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit Wyoming Automotive and we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.
