How To Recognize What’s Wrong With Your Car
If you have a car, then you know how annoying it is when something goes wrong. I’m sure that there are times where you’ve been stuck on the side of the road because your car just wouldn’t start. If this has happened to you before, then it’s likely that those moments were frustrating and disappointing as well. Fortunately, if this sounds like an issue that has come up for you in the past, we at auto repair Gilbert AZ are here to help!
First, let’s talk about the basics of your car. In order for your vehicle to run, it must have four things: fuel, which is usually gasoline; air in the form of oxygen that mixes with this fuel inside an engine cylinder during a process called combustion ; spark plugs , which are small devices that create sparks and ignite the mixture of gasoline/air in each cylinder at just the right time so that these reactions can occur repeatedly without interruption or uncontrolled detonation (which would cause serious damage); lastly, compression , which means getting all parts moving together by making them fit into tight spaces.
If any one part fails to perform its job properly, then you’ll experience problems when driving. This is where troubleshooting comes in!
First let’s talk about cars that won’t start. During a cold winter day, your vehicle can be difficult to get going because the engine is colder and harder for it to turn over when you try to start it up. If this happens, then there’s nothing wrong with your car! You just need warmer weather or a little more patience in order for it to work properly again. Other times though, an issue will occur inside of the actual engine itself which will keep you from turning on your car at all. In these cases, we have found three common problems: clogged fuel filter , faulty ignition system , or dirty battery cables .
