    How to Know When It's Time for New Brakes

    Last updated 8 months ago

    Your car’s brakes are one of its most crucial safety features. Over the miles, some of your brake’s most important features will experience normal wear and tear. By understanding the signs and symptoms of failing brakes, you will ensure that your car is safe at all times on the road. To help you know when it’s time to make an appointment with your mechanic, here are some signs that your brakes are in need of replacement.

    Unusual Sounds

    Your brakes may begin to make unusual sounds when they are in need of replacement. For example, your brake pads will make a loud screeching or squealing noise when they have worn down too far. Other brake warning noises include grinding, scraping, or growling sounds when you place your foot on the brake pedal. These sounds could indicate a serious brake issue.

    Strong Vibrations

    When your brakes are in need of replacement, you may notice a strong vibrating sensation when you hit the brake pedal. Any unusual vibrating sensation could be caused by warped brake rotors. When your brake rotors become warped or damaged, the performance of your braking system could become significantly compromised.

    Lack of Response

    If you are noticing that your brakes are not as responsive as usual, you may be due for a brake replacement procedure. Lack of braking response could be caused by a leak in the brake fluid lines, or could also be the result of an air leak. If your brake fluid is leaking, you may notice a puddle of fluid underneath your car.

    When your car’s brakes are in need of repair, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment at Murray’s Auto Clinic. Our friendly auto care professionals serve the Silver Springs area with a complete range of top quality services and repairs. Give our service center a call at (240) 450-2478 to schedule a repair appointment for your car today. 

    Getting Your Car Ready for Winter

    Last updated 9 months ago

    The coldest months of the year are on their way, and now is the perfect time to make sure that your car is ready for winter. When exterior temperatures drop to freezing, some of the most important systems of your vehicle will experience additional wear and strain. To keep your car in great driving shape throughout the winter, it is essential to schedule winter maintenance procedures for your vehicle. Here is an overview of some of the ways that you can get your car ready for winter.

    Replace Your Engine Oil

    When the weather gets cold outside, your car’s engine oil may be affected. On a very cold day, your car’s engine may run at a temperature that is colder than usual. To ensure the best engine performance during the winter, it is a good idea to switch to thinner or winter-rated oil during the colder season.

    Fill Your Coolant

    Engine coolant is designed to protect your engine from extreme temperatures. To keep the vital components of your engine from freezing during the winter months, it is important to fill your coolant and check your fluid levels on a routine basis. Your mechanic can recommend the best ratio of coolant to water.

    Check Your Tires

    The winter weather can bring wet or slippery conditions to the road. To prepare your car for winter driving, it is essential to check the condition and wear of your tires. If your tire treads appear to be worn too far, you should replace your tires with a new set.

    At Murray’s Auto Clinic, our expert mechanics can help you get your car ready for the winter months. We offer a complete range of seasonal auto maintenance procedures and repairs, and we will ensure that your car is in great shape throughout the year.
