Have you ever jumped in the car, prepared to start the day, turn the key in the ignition and nothing happens? This is a stressful scenario, but hopefully, this article will give you some guidance of what is happening.

If you are unsure if the problem is with the starter, the battery, or the alternator, check your lights and other electrical devices. If the starter is bad then you'll most likely hear a faint click when turning the key and absolutely no other response. If the lights and other accessories in your car are completely dead, then the battery is most likely the issue. If your vehicle starts, but only after a struggle, it may be that your alternator is going bad.

The alternator is a key component in your car's electrical system, turning the energy from the crankshaft into useful electricity to power your vehicle's electrical systems and to help the battery recharge. When it starts to fail, it can create a domino effect of electrical problems that can ultimately cause a breakdown. What are the signs of a bad alternator?

If your vehicle is having starting problems, it may be starter, battery, or alternator. Ask your mechanic to let you know about signs of a bad alternator.

Unless you have money to throw away, you are probably conscious of your car’s gas mileage. Maybe you have never considered the condition of your tires and whether or not they can adversely affect mileage. Tires can play an important role in helping you get the best gas mileage and save money when it’s time to purchase gasoline. You might have asked; “Can new tires affect gas mileage?” Your choice of tires, proper inflation, and tread depth, or the newness of your tires, most certainly affects your gas mileage.

When it’s time to purchase new tires for your car, be sure to consider tread type and to purchase tires that meet at least the manufacturer’s minimum requirement for your vehicle. There are several other factors to consider when purchasing new tires; all-season tread, tread life rating, and braking capabilities.

Ask your mechanic if new tires can affect gas mileage. They will be happy to help you choose the right kind of tires for your vehicle and offer discounts on quality tire service.

When was the last time you had your car serviced? Six months ago (that’s good) or more than a year ago (not so good)? Maintenance is an expense, but the potential costs of damage that can happen in an engine, transmission, and suspension due to lack of maintenance is much greater. Some vehicle owners try to save money by extending the time between services on their car.

What happens if you don’t service your car regularly? It will start to lose efficiency when things like the spark or glow plugs wear out, the cabin air quality decreases if the air filters aren't replaced, and potentially expensive conditions like oil sludge can build up if the oil is not changed at the appropriate intervals. This can cost you money in urgent car repair, and that's before you get too worn safety items like brakes and shock absorbers!

Don’t find yourself wonder what happens if you don’t service your car. You will be calling your auto shop sooner rather than later for car repair issues.
