There’s a reason why auto service stations have one of the largest numbers of complaints with state attorney generals in every state. Some uphold good business practices and ethics, but most, unfortunately are all about profit and don’t care if they have to lie and cheat to get it. To prove this all one has to do is go to several dealers with the same problem or question. You will get many different answers, price ranges and estimates all for the same problem(s) and almost all recommending unnecessary and unneeded services or repairs.
Engine stalls and sputters are also not normal and not healthy for your vehicle. If this is the case for you, the root cause could be a variety of things. An automotive repair shop will be able to analyze the problem and get your car running as quickly as possible. Because the causes of engine problems are so numerous, they can be difficult to diagnose at home. They can range from a bad fuel system to low engine compression to an engine vacuum leak. Chances are, if your engine is misbehaving in this way, something is defective and needs to be replaced.
Document and write down everything. As well as compensating for lapses in memory, it provides a proper paper trail for a post crisis assessment and can serve as a useful training tool during dispatcher training.
One sign that your vehicle may need repair is if the tires are shaking. Shaking wheels can be a sign of bad tire alignment. Tire alignment is not a do-it-yourself job. It requires specialized tools and specific training to be able to fix alignment problems. Other signs to look for in regards to bad alignment are uneven tire wear and the steering wheel pulling to one side or the other. If your car is experiencing any of these issues, call your local auto shop immediately. If not taken care of right away, bad alignment can turn into more serious, and more expensive, problems. A car mechanic will also check your CV joints and tie rods, which they can replace on-site, with less hassle and cost for you.
Oil change is a necessary service for vehicle owners and for this reason the auto servis stations are often busy serving car owners. In this situation, you might need waiting for a while for your turn to come. Some companies take bookings in advance but they you have to be at the service center, when your turn comes.
The most common way a tire wears out, is by quickly braking or slamming on your brakes. It’s best to avoid sudden braking as much as you can. Only brake like this if it’s an absolute must. Instead, simply step on your brakes steadily and in a slow manner. This actually preserves the tire but also helps with fuel efficiency. Slamming the brakes have a great way of eating up the fuel in your vehicle like an angry monster.
Learn radio jargon and vocabulary. There’s a whole dictionary of terms and special words for use on the air. Some of these are a matter of convention and vary by industry. On the other hand things like the phonetic alphabet are so universal that they are typically still taught during dispatcher training.
