Following a few auto care visibility tips can be illuminating, helping to ensure the safety of you, your passengers and other vehicles around you. Replace any exterior or interior lights that are dimming, rapidly blinking or non-functioning, and be sure headlights are correctly aimed. Make sure that vehicle mirrors are clean and properly positioned. Check windshield washer fluid level and when it gets low, replace it. Replace wiper blades if they show cracking or if they chatter or streak when operating. Don’t forget to check the rear wiper blade. When in doubt, turn your lights on to help you see and help other drivers see you. Some states have laws that require headlights to be on when windshield wipers are operating. Don’t overdrive your headlights. Maintain a speed that will allow you to stop within the illuminated area, otherwise you create a blind crash zone in front of your vehicle.

The head gasket not only contains the pressure of controlled explosions within the cylinders, but it also isolates the cylinders, oil and cooling channels from each other. It provides a seal between the engine block and the head that caps the cylinders. How do I know it's time to replace my head gasket? When it fails, coolant can leak inside the combustion chambers. A leaky head gasket can also allow coolant to seep out near the exhaust manifold, causing the engine to run hotter. That heat should trigger a warning light. A sure sign of a blown head gasket is steam - what looks like white smoke -- coming out of the exhaust system, and often from under the hood. Because the engine is rapidly losing coolant, it will quickly overheat and should be immediately shut off. How often should I replace my head gasket? The only time it should be replaced is if it develops leaks. The head gasket isn't a periodic maintenance item, so it should be replaced only when necessary. Why do I need to change my head gasket? Because if you don't fix it, you could destroy your engine.

When Hurricane Katrina struck the Atlantic coast of America, the US Coast Guard saved over 33,500 lives. An estimated 24,000 of these lives were rescued from peril in severely dangerous conditions. #nationalcoastguardday

When you apply the brakes to stop the vehicle, the brake pads are the friction material that gets pressed against the discs that spin along with the wheels. Eventually they wear down and need to be replaced. How many years or miles before that happens depends on where and how you drive, as well as on the type of pads. The pads are mounted in calipers that have an inspection hole on top that lets you check the thickness of the pads on both sides of the disc, also called the rotor. On some vehicles that have aluminum-alloy wheels, you can check the outer pads with the wheels on, but in most cases you will have to jack up the car and remove the wheels to look at the pads on both sides. Mechanics use different guidelines for determining when pads should be replaced. New pads range from about 3/8 of an inch to 1/2 inch in thickness when new, depending on the vehicle. Some shops recommend replacing the pads when they're down to about 1/4 inch, others say 1/8 or when only 20 to 25 percent of the original thickness is left. The danger of letting the thickness get too low is that once the pads are worn away, the metal backing plate on which they were mounted will be squeezed against the rotor, usually damaging the rotor beyond repair. Many mechanics measure pads the old-fashioned way — with a ruler — or they use tools designed for measuring pad thickness. Another way to check is to have new, exact replacement pads available for comparison. Because brakes are such an important safety feature, pad thickness shouldn't be the only concern. A repair shop also will measure the thickness of rotors and whether they and the pads are evenly worn. Uneven pad wear can be caused by sticking caliper slides or pins; the calipers might need cleaning, lubricating or replacement. In any of those cases, replacing the pads alone won't solve all the problems.
