In Naples Florida, we rely a lot on our car to get us from one place to another. Because of that fact its common to have a car problem every once in a while. While new cars are loaded with awesome features, that keep our ride safe and comfortable, there are several historical issues we have consistently had with cars for the past 100 years.
Below are some of the top reasons why people visit my auto repair shop in Naples Florida.
#1. Dead or faulty battery: Dead batteries are the most common cause of breakdown
#2. Lost keys: These days, your key most likely includes a microchip, designed to stop your car being stolen, so it’s a good idea to keep a spare at home.
#3. Damaged tires and wheels: Check your tires’ tread depth regularly. If you can see uneven tyre wear, your wheels might be misaligned. Get a tire specialist to check, or take your car to a tire centre.
#4. Faulty alternator: If you’re experiencing persistent battery problems and dim headlights when your engine is idling, you could have a fault with your alternator.
#5. Starter motor: Although starter motors are usually tough and robust, they do fail eventually.
#6. Fuel problems: Put the wrong fuel in your engine? It does happen to more than 150,000 drivers every year, but don’t start your engine.
#7. Clutch cables: The clutch cable is under a lot of stress. And if it breaks, it can be a serious problem. It’s best to get it checked if you notice any change to the way the clutch feels when you press the pedal.
#8. Spark plugs: Spark plugs can break or wear out but shouldn’t be a problem as long as your car is serviced regularly.
