What car problems have you had or do you have?
List and if you have already found the solution, post that too! Peas and tanks!
Over the years, I have had tons of car problems, and I have learned more than I ever cared to know about cars…LoL I’ve had slave and master cylinder, blowed up radiator and head gaskets, hail damage, starter, alternator, and we’ve replaced a transmission. Luckily, my husband is a diesel mechanic, so we DIY all our car problems. I just hand over tools and help bleed brakes and stuff.
A problem I'm having now is a tire keeps losing air. Have added a can of "flat fix" and worked for a short while, then just keep putting air in the tire. Looking for a used tire but was told it is not a common size, 24"...a new one is expensive, but may have to get it eventually.
Couple things we would like to know before helping you!
- is this a slow leak?
- where did you purchase the tires?
I need to add air each day. I forgot mention I had a patch put on at a tire repair shop about 2 weeks ago, but only helped some. I don't know where the tires were purchased, were already on there when I got the car.
Alright... Hmmm... Neptune's first thought is that since it came with the car, go to the dealership where you bought the car... Since I think you want to save on money, do you know what kind of leak it is? (sidewall cracks,valve stem leak,nails,etc)?
I suggest going to the auto store. Pick up a kit. And diy. Save yourself money and learn some mechanic skills (:
Thanks Neptune Salacia...I am trying to do more things myself...it's just a matter of the correct knowledge.
The kit has step by step instructions. There are also youtube videos on how to do it as well. (: you got this.

I have driven a car for a number of years but recently moved on to motorcycles and though there are critical differences between the two, I notice that the motorcycle tires wear out much faster than the way the tires on my car does. Why is that?

Should these tires have a small indentation on them?

What is the best brand of car tires for the money?Regardless of size what company is the best for the cost? A Toyo tire will always cost less then a Michelin tire but is a Toyo worth the price?

I had a pretty scary/awesome car tire blow out on the motorway last night on the drive home from work and had to change my tire (or remove the shredded one) in the cold wind and mud!I got taught how to do this when I started driving and went away to university but a lot of people I've spoken to do...

My car has started giving me some sort of sounds like kinking when I taken it for tire rotation.Reverted the tire rotation but stil the issue exists. Chekced it at Tire Discounters and they replaced the brake pads and still the sound is there. Now they are saying it might be due to some tire...
