Car Problems?

Car shaking can be due to various reasons such as wheel alignment issues, brake problems, or engine troubles. It’s best to have your vehicle checked by a professional mechanic to diagnose the problem.

Overheating can be caused by a malfunctioning cooling system, a leak in the cooling system, a faulty thermostat, or a failing water pump. It’s crucial to get your car checked immediately to prevent further damage.

The check engine light can come on for many reasons, including a malfunctioning sensor, a failing catalytic converter, a loose gas cap, or spark plug issues. A computer diagnostic analysis can help identify the exact cause.

Strange noises can be a sign of various issues, such as problems with the brakes, engine, exhaust system, or suspension. It’s recommended to have a mechanic inspect your car to determine the source of the noise.

High fuel consumption can be due to factors like aggressive driving habits, under-inflated tyres, a dirty air filter, or engine problems. Regular servicing can help maintain optimal fuel efficiency.

A vibrating steering wheel can be a sign of unbalanced tyres, alignment issues, or problems with the brake system. A mechanic can help identify and fix the issue.

If your car’s air conditioning isn’t cooling, it could be due to a refrigerant leak, a faulty compressor, a clogged condenser, or other issues. An auto repair shop can diagnose and repair the problem.

A soft brake pedal can be a sign of air in the brake lines, worn brake pads, or a brake fluid leak. It’s crucial to get your brakes checked immediately for safety.

A fast-draining battery could be due to a faulty alternator, a parasitic drain, or simply an old battery. A mechanic can test your battery and charging system to find the issue.

The tyre pressure light can come on if your tyres are under-inflated, over-inflated, or if there’s a problem with the tyre pressure monitoring system. It’s important to check your tyre pressure and adjust it as necessary.
