Some drivers wonder how does wheel alignment work and why is it necessary. To put it simply, a car alignment is basically when a car is perfectly perpendicular and level when driving. When the alignment is impaired, it causes uneven tire wear and unsafe driving as it is easier to lose control of the vehicle.

The proper alignment is determined with measurements graduated by degrees. Mechanics use these measurements to return the vehicle to alignment in three basic ways; the camber, caster and toe. When these measurements are correct, you will have a car that preserves tires, drives straight, and drives safely.

If you're wondering about how does wheel alignment work, ask your mechanic about 3 car alignment measurements such as camber, caster & toe alignments.

How do you know what questions to ask when you visit your auto repair shop? Here are a few tips that will help to know what and why you should ask your mechanic about auto repair services.

  1. How much will the auto repair cost? Get an estimate of the cost of the work so you can fit it into your budget. Your mechanic should provide you with a list of the needed parts, how much time it will take to complete the work, and how much labor cost per hour. If the cost is more than you can pay at one time, ask what the minimum required auto maintenance would be to keep the vehicle safe to drive. Then, ask your mechanic to prioritize the needed auto repair services to be done at a later time, or in stages.
  2. What parts are being used and do they have a warranty? Ask your mechanic if there is a warranty on the replacement parts, and possibly on the labor. If the replaced part fails before the warranty expires with normal use, you want to make sure it will be taken care of by the shop. Some parts have a guarantee that covers only a portion of the cost. Make sure you read and understand, the fine print!
  3. How long will it take to complete the job? Some auto shops will provide a loaner if the work takes more than a couple of days. Or, if it is only a few hours, they may have a driver who can drop you off at work and pick you up again. Just be sure to know ahead of time so you can make the appropriate arrangements for transportation.

Alternator Replacement and Diagnosis

First of all, please let us describe what an alternator is. The alternator is a vital part of a vehicle's electric system. The battery starts the car, but it's the alternator that keeps it running. When the engine is running, the alternator supplies extra power to the electrical system and charges the battery.

Secondly, you may be wondering what causes an alternator to go bad? Alternators can fail for different reasons. Several factors can affect how long an alternator lasts, including the quality of the part, conditions in which the car is driven and how many electronics are being used inside the car.

How do you know if the alternator is the problem? When the alternator goes bad, the electronics try to draw all of their power off the battery, which can cause the battery to die as well. But, if the alternator is replaced right away, the charge can be restored to the battery. So, if the dash battery light comes on and the headlights are dimming, get a charging system test to make sure whether the problem is the alternator or the battery.

Wondering how long does it take to replace an alternator? Ask your mechanic to check your alternator, starter, and battery to identify the exact problem
