Common Car Maintenance Issues

Common Car Maintenance Issues

We’ve all had car problems before, and it’s not pleasant. Especially when we’re not expecting it. Here are some common car maintenance issues that you might run into.

Oxygen Sensor

You might not even know this exists, but it does! It’s a sensor that reads the amount of unburned oxygen in your exhaust. It’ll then tell your car when there’s too much or too little oxygen in your tank.

Catalytic Converter

This converter turns gases from your exhaust into emissions that are easier on people’s lungs. This is a common maintenance probably, and unfortunately an expensive one. It usually goes wrong when the spark plug malfunctions.

Spark Plugs

These tricky guys are essential to the running of your car and sometimes stop doing their job. These ignite the fuel in your internal combustion engine, which is what makes your car go! Luckily, this can be a do-it-yourself project.

Loose Fuel Cap

This is an annoying but easy fix, and another do-it-yourself fix. If your “check engine” light comes on, then this might be the problem. Make sure you replace it right away so as not to decrease your gas mileage.
