“Oh no, my vehicle keeps going left but I’m steering straight! Will this damage my vehicle?” If you have owned a car for very long, you have probably had that same question. Misalignment can be something that just develops over time, but it’s more likely caused by a specific incident. Car alignment issues aren’t always obvious right away and they tend to get worse over time.

So what causes wheel alignment problems? Here are just a few common incidents that may occur:

  • Hitting curbs
  • Going too fast over speed bumps
  • Hitting potholes too fast
  • Auto accidents, even minor ones
  • Neglect of vehicle maintenance
If you’re wondering what causes wheel alignment problems, ask your mechanic. Don’t neglect a car alignment service to preserve your tires and suspension.

There is never a convenient time for your car not to start when you are running out the door to work or some other event. The most common culprit is a dying car battery. As a conscientious vehicle owner, take time to become informed of the signs of a dying battery so you aren’t left in a panic wondering what is wrong your car.

There are three noticeable signs to watch for before your car battery finally gives up:

  1. The engine cranks but doesn't start when you turn the ignition. The lights are very dim and the other electrical accessories are sluggish.
  2. When turning the ignition, the starter just makes a clicking noise and is unable to turn the engine over. The lights and other electrical accessories do not work at all.
  3. The battery doesn’t take a charge from the alternator after using jumper cables to start the engine.
There are three noticeable signs of a dying battery. If these signs are frequent occurrences, it is time for a car battery replacement.
