Wheel alignment (or simply alignment) is standard
car maintenance that involves adjusting the angles
of the wheels so that they are set to the
manufacturer's specifications. The main purpose is
to let the suspension and the steering systems
operate at their desired angles - this reduces
tire wear. Alignment is a complicated process and
not all mechanics get it right. To have experts
handle your car's alignment, visit A-1 Auto
Anti-lock brakes prevent wheel lock-up when rapidly
decelerating by automatically modulating the brake
pressure during an emergency stop. With this system,
the wheels are able to maintain traction with the
road while braking. Failure of the anti-lock brakes
could lead to an increase in the risks of multiple
vehicle crashes and run-off road crashes. To avoid
this, have your anti-lock brake system checked and
repaired by experts. At A-1 Auto Center LLC, we
have anti-lock brake experts who will examine and
repair your faulty ABS - keeping you safe.
A brake is a mechanical device for slowing or
stopping a vehicle (usually by means of friction).
In short, a brake inhibits your car's motion. It
lets you stop the car whenever and wherever you
choose. Brakes are one of the most important parts
of a motor vehicle. Without them, you would not be
able to stop the car. If your vehicle's brakes are
having issues, consider having them worked on.
Brake experts at A-1 Auto Center LLC can work on
your car's brakes to ensure you have a safe drive.
A chassis is the car's internal framework that
supports the body and other parts like the wheels,
engine, transmission, driveshaft, differential, and
suspension. A weak or damaged chassis will translate
to a weak car. To have a strong and properly working
vehicle, have your car's chassis checked for defects.
At A-1 Auto Center LLC, there are experienced undercar
service providers who can work on your chassis.
The differential transfers the engine power to the
wheels. One important function of the differential
is to pass on power to the wheels while allowing them
to rotate at different speeds - thus the name
differential. When turning, the outer wheels travel a
larger distance than the inner wheels do (also the
front wheels travel a longer distance than the rear
wheels). This means that all four wheels travel at
different speeds during a turn and this is where the
differential comes in to help. To make sure your
vehicle's differentials are working properly, have
them checked regularly. Contact A-1 Auto Center LLC
today for differentials examination and servicing.
In a motor vehicle, an exhaust system is a piping
used to guide exhaust fumes away from the
engine - usually to the rear of the vehicle. A
properly functioning exhaust system not only sounds
better, it is better - for you, your car, and the
environment. A-1 Auto Center LLC has expert
technicians to service your car's exhaust system.
A driveline is a part of your motor vehicle that
connects the engine and the transmission to the
wheel axles. The driveline consists of the parts of
the powertrain less the engine and transmission.
Failure of the driveline means that the car would
not move since energy cannot be transmitted from
the engine to the wheel axles. Therefore, make sure
that your car's driveline is regularly inspected and
serviced. And, at A-1 Auto Center LLC, you can have
the driveline serviced by experts.
As tires get older, they lose traction and
deteriorate from the inside out, increasing the
likelihood of a tire bursting. This can cause a
rapid loss of control of your vehicle. To have a
better performing vehicle, you need to make sure
the tires are in good condition. For all your tire
needs, contact A-1 Auto Center LLC today.
Shocks (or shock absorbers) are mechanical devices
designed to smooth out rough roads. The devices do
this by converting kinetic energy to another form
of energy. Properly working shocks reduce the effect
of traveling over rough ground, leading to improved
ride quality and vehicle handling. When shocks
develop problems, driving on poorly leveled roads
becomes unpleasant, and your vehicle may sway when
turning. To have your vehicle's shocks diagnosed
and repaired, visit A-1 Auto Center LLC today.
