Top 5 Common Car Problems

  • webmaster
  • Mar 05, 2021

According to Agero, a prominent company in improving driving safety, there are roughly 69 million vehicle breakdowns in the US each year. That’s about 1 in 3 drivers who will suffer car troubles! Airline Auto Parts should be your first and only stop to get the replacement parts you need to get back on the road. We ship nation-wide and carry an enormous selection of auto parts. Here are a few of the issues that we get part orders for on a regular basis!

Brake Problems

Odds are, you’ve been in or owned a vehicle that had some kind of trouble with its brakes. There’s a huge number of things that can go haywire with your brakes, from worn pads to broken discs and more. There are a lot of moving parts in your braking system alone, so it’s not uncommon to have something go wrong over time. Here are a few signs you may have brake issues:

– Leaking fluid

– Squeaking or grinding noises

– The car pulls to one side while stopping

– Issues with the brake pedal

– Wobbling or jerking movements when the brake is applied

– Problems with the anti-lock system

– And more!

 

The good news is that Airline Auto Parts carries just about any component you may need to fix your brake problem. You can search online or on-location for the make, model, and part you need. We stock all foreign and domestic vehicles so that our customers don’t leave empty-handed. If you need a single piece or an entire brake system, we have you covered.

Alternator Failure

The alternator is a key component in your car’s electrical system, turning the crankshaft’s energy into useful electricity to power your vehicle’s electrical systems. It also is responsible for assisting in charging the battery so that the car can do its job. Alternator failure is a common problem among motorists, leading to all kinds of electrical and overall performance issues. The alternator is the piece responsible for starting the car when it is off. It also powers the most electric-heavy components while driving or idling, such as headlights, power windows, the radio, etc. Without a functioning alternator, there is nothing to charge your battery, and you will find yourself on the side of the road with a dead vehicle. Replacing a faulty alternator can be costly, so do yourself a favor and shop recycled, used, and remanufactured options at Airline Auto Parts! Search by year, make, and model to get exactly what you need!

Cracked Windshield

Windshields can typically take a licking and keep on ticking, but every so often, they’ll crack under pressure (literally). While driving at high speeds, you may get hit with a rock or stone or other debris from the highway. If it hits you with enough force and in the right spot, your windshield can crack. A small crack won’t obstruct your view, but it’s a good idea to get it repaired or replaced ASAP. Fluctuating temperatures may cause the glass to expand or contract, causing the crack to get larger. Before you know it, half your window is covered with fine lines that distort your view! As you would imagine, replacing a windshield can cost a pretty penny. There are countless vehicles just like yours sitting in yards like Airline Auto’s with perfect windshields! We can match you with a windshield from the make and model you need for a fraction of the cost of visiting a dealership or even most garages. With a 6-month warranty on all products, you can feel confident that your windshield will arrive undamaged or your money back!

Transmission Problems

The transmission is another common part to have technical difficulties with. It’s extremely important, so any issues should be checked out right away. The transmission is responsible for converting the engine’s combustion power into momentum to drive the wheels. In other words, the transmission is why your car can accelerate. When things go awry, you can run into some dangerous situations. Many cars now have an automatic transmission, but standard/manual vehicles are also out and about on the road. Each of these requires vastly different elements and parts when things go wrong. There are a few ways to identify a faulty transmission:

– Your car feels like it is trying to change gears, and you cannot stop it

– Shifting gears is rough and jerky

– Shifting is delayed 

– You have problems maintaining the correct level of transmission fluid

– Strange noises while shifting

– And more

If you notice any of these “symptoms,” it’s time to check out your vehicle. Don’t go to the dealership to get a new transmission – that’ll cost you far more money than it should! Instead, find a local shop or garage that you trust and that charges fair prices. If you’re in need of any part of the transmission, check online at https://airlineautoparts.net/ by make, model, and part! We ship all over the US quickly and promise a 6-month warranty.

Cosmetic Issues

We constantly hear about cosmetic issues such as dents, rusts, scratches, broken mirrors, detached bumpers, etc. While most of these problems are little more than inconveniences, many car owners detest them. Things happen that cause damage, and most car owners want to fix it when they can. In some cases, it’s appropriate to replace the area entirely rather than repaint, buff out, or reattach it. Cosmetic reasons are one of the driving forces for used car parts. You may think that all the cars used for parts are old and run down, but that’s not always the case! Airline Auto Parts and similar salvage yards could be able to find your body panels, interior elements, mirrors, hubcaps, and more for a fraction of the price of the same items new from the manufacturer. People often hunt for parts of vehicles following accidents that destroy the bumper, hood, or side panel. Since Airline Auto Parts stocks just about any vehicle you can think of, the odds are good that we have what you need. We’ve helped many customers with rarer cars find replacement panels and parts, and we can help you too!

We hope you’ve found this article informative and helpful. If you suffer any of these car troubles, make sure your first stop is to Airline Auto Parts. We offer fair prices to all customers, and our shipping process is designed specifically to keep your parts safe and get them to you quickly. Check out https://airlineautoparts.net/ to see what parts we currently have in stock. Our inventory is constantly changing, so keep us in mind whenever you need to repair your vehicle!
