Top 4 Reasons Your Car May Not Drive Smoothly

There might be a mechanical issue if you notice any excessive rumbling, bouncing, shaking, swaying, rocking, wobbling,  or other odd feelings while driving.

Did you know that having a small problem checked before it turns into a larger one can save you money? Often times, you’ll save a lot of money, as when one part fails, it usually causes other parts to follow suit.

Read this list of the top reasons your vehicle may not be driving smoothly to help save you time, money, and potentially keep those you’re driving safely.

#1 Tire Troubles

The first thing you should check when your car’s motion feels off is tires. To avoid problems with tires try to get a  tire rotation service once a season to make sure your car is in good shape.

Bumpy rides can be the reason for tire alignment, air pressure, or even the tires being inappropriately secured. Low or high air pressure can cause a bunch of problems for car’s tires too. If the pressure is too high, they may warp out of shape, even may actually blow out. This causes your drive to be rough, as you’ll feel every bump and crack in the road.

Check your tires regularly and Schedule an Appointment with Kambio to see if the tire pressure is even on each one.

#2 Suspension Repair

The suspension is the system of tires, tire air, springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels and allows relative motion between them. If something in your suspension has an issue, you should notice some big differences in how the vehicle both feels and handles.

If your suspension is giving you trouble, there are only a few major parts which should give you concern. If your car uses leaf spring, one or more may be cracked or damaged. The suspensions’ shock absorbers can be broken or damaged. Also, the coil springs may lose tension, especially through rough use.

#3 Brake Repair

Your brakes are car’s important part, where you can definitely feel, smell, and hear whether or not they are working properly. There can be different factors related to your brakes giving you trouble, and many of them are sadly outside of your direct control. Weather is very important. Whether it’s raining, sleeting, snowing, hailing, or bone dry, your brakes can become wet, icy, and dirty, all of which will cause them to make odd noises. Fortunately, brakes aren’t the most expensive problems to fix and very often you only need to replace the brake pads.

However, you can always give yourself a brake check to find out how well they are actually responding. If you don’t have time for regular check-ups, try to take an on-location car care service.

#4 Transmission Repair

A transmission is a machine in a power transmission system, which provides a controlled application of power. The cost of its repair usually depends on how quickly you are able to tell your transmission needs servicing and when you actually take it in for service.

Many people may notice a slight problem and let it persist over months, even years until finally, it gives out entirely. A brand new transmission can cost as much as a cheap used car, so it’s far better to have it looked at early on by a mechanic whenever you bring your car in for maintenance just to keep an eye on it. Finally, and the only problem you should actually hope for, your vehicle may simply be too cold to drive. If you notice your transmission is having a difficult time getting into gear, out of gear, or makes any number of odd noises, and it’s deathly cold outside, you should probably let your vehicle warm up.
