Fresh Brake Pads Help to Prevent Auto Accidents

Brake fluids help lubricate the system that helps keep the brakes working properly, but they do not lubricate the pads. This may seem odd since maintaining brake fluids helps keep the brake system working properly, but putting fluid on the wrong side of the pad would make the brakes less effective.

Brake pads are the part of the brake used to stop the car. The pad applies friction to the wheel, and friction supplies the force that slows the car down. Cars cannot stop on a dime, but they can slow down.

Keeping Air in the Tires

When you're driving, you shouldn't feel any kind of vibration from your vehicle or experience any kind of pulling to one side of the road. If you experience any of these issues, then your tire pressure might not at the proper level.

Your tire pressure can change because of the temperature outside your vehicle or if there is any damage to your tires. If the pressure is too high, then there won't be as much of the tire touching the roadway, which could impact stopping and handling curves.

Understand Oil Viscosity Better

You know that motor oil helps your car run safely and that your car requires an oil with a specific viscosity rating. But what do motor oil viscosity ratings mean? We have the answer, here at our Hyundai maintenance center in Montgomery, AL.

Let's define viscosity first. This quality measures a liquid's flow resistance. Thick liquids like molasses flow slowly, so we say that they have high viscosity. Water and other thin liquids flow quickly, so they feature low viscosity. Motor oil viscosity ratings always have a W and a hyphen, and examples include 5W-20 and 10W-40.

How do Your Brakes Work?

Brakes are something that you hardly ever think about until something goes wrong. Your brakes use friction to overcome the energy generated by the car moving forward. When the driver pushes on the brake pedal, the lever pushes a piston into the master cylinder. The master cylinder is filled with hydraulic fluid. This multiplies the force of your foot and transfers it to the brake system. The hydraulic fluid causes the brake caliper to press the brake pad against the brake disc. This creates friction and heat in the brake pad.
