When you are someone who owns a vehicle, you should make sure that you know all about them and you should at least know the basic things so that if you break down in the middle of nowhere, you will not be clueless as to what needs to be done. There are chances that you could get stranded while travelling. You need not wait hours for some service to come and pick you up. When you know what the basic parts look like and also what they do, you can actually do fine by yourself until you find a garage to check if there is something wrong with your vehicle. Well, you should take it to a garage anyway so that you will be able to get a professional opinion.
You should know what the most essential and basic parts are, where they are located, what they do and also how they can be installed and removed as well. You should also know how to check them. Learn all about car parts so that you will have a much better in-depth view and better knowledge when it comes to how you can maintain your vehicle.
- The battery is certainly one of the most critical components of the car, and it is one of the things that is essential when you even want to turn on the car in the first place. In most of the cars, it will be located and is also very accessible under the hood. You will be able to notice it because of the + and – symbols on it.
- The axle is the next one, and it is responsible for the transfer of power from the engine to the wheels. It is definitely an essential part which you will need to have it working properly because it is needed for braking and turning as well. You will be able to tell if it is having issues when you hear a clunking sound. You will also be experiencing some severe vibrations in the car when you are turning and when you are braking.
- The brakes are the next thing that I will be talking about. Oh my! Where would we even be without the brakes in our vehicles? There are many components near the brakes of our cars. There is the brake, the pedal and also the clutch. (The clutch is present only in cars where you will have to manually change the gears all the time.)
When there is something wrong with the gear, you will know, and you will have to get it fixed immediately because it is really dangerous to drive a vehicle without a proper brake system.
