If you get a puncture in a tire, is it okay to replace it with a new one and drive a mismatched set? What are the concerns with running a mixed set?
We have been hard at work over the last few months going in-depth with every one of the services we offer at Parkside Motors. Once we get to the end of a series we put them all together in one place so new readers can have a look at what we have been up to. Last week we completed our series of articles on automobile maintenance and tune-ups so we are taking the opportunity to round them up and give them their due. You can find a full list of services on our Services Page and follow the listings to their in-depth article at your leisure. A round up for our Vital Fluids articles lives here.
Engine Analysis & Repair
Everything you need to know about how your car’s systems compensate for each other when there are errors, and how we use engine diagnostics to get to the root of the problem before any serious damage is done.
Engine Mechanical Repairs (IE Timing Belt)
One of the greatest dangers to high mileage cars is also one of the least well known. We all know how to maintain our engine oil and to prevent cases of transmission failure, but the death of many high mileage cars is cause by the failure of the timing belt. Lucky for us, its maintenance is predictable and can be scheduled far enough in advance to ensure your vehicle’s health.
Fuel Filter Replacement
Let’s not split hairs, your fuel filter passes gas. When it doesn’t, that is when the problems begin. Below we take a look at the 3 key benefits of a clean fuel filter and its suggested replacement interval.
Fuel Injection Service
Fuel injectors start and stop the flow of fuel into the engine. A clogged or dirty fuel injector will not deliver the optimal amount of fuel required for the air/fuel ratio – reducing your engine’s efficiency. Learn how fuel injector can help your engine running smoothly again.
On vehicles with standard transmissions, the clutch plays an important role in the operation of a vehicle in that it serves to connect the engine to the transmission. Clutches are no different than most other parts in your vehicle; they encounter a certain amount of wear and tear during normal driving circumstances and require replacement. Here we explain what a clutch does, how often they need replacement, and some tips on how to prolong the life of your clutch.
Exhaust System Replacement
Your vehicle’s exhaust system is the piping used to guide reaction exhaust gases away from the controlled combustion inside your engine. A loud sounding exhaust is the easiest symptom to identify when your exhaust system needs maintenance or repair. Age and driving environment eventually wear these components out and develop leaks or they can fail internally as is the case with catalytic converters.
