What Happens When You Accidentally Drive With Your Parking Brake?

What Happens When You Accidentally Drive With Your Parking Brake?

Nowadays, most vehicles will send out an audible signal to alert you that your parking brake is still engaged. However, if your car doesn't have this feature, you can tell by how your vehicle drives. Driving with the e-brake on will make your car feel sluggish and prevent you from accelerating properly.    If you're the type of motorist who always puts their parking or emergency brake up when they park, you may have forgotten to disengage it at one time or another. The parking brake or emergency brake is a secondary brake that is used as a backup just in case your primary braking system fails. This cable system locks your rear wheels and prevents them from spinning rather than using fluid to stop your vehicle. As a result, the stop from your e-brake is more abrupt and quick.   If you have a newer vehicle, the emergency brake may look different. Modern cars nowadays have an electronic parking brake that you can engage with a push of a button, rather than the s ... read more

Signs Of a Clogged or Dirty Cabin Filter

Signs Of a Clogged or Dirty Cabin Filter

All cars have a cabin filter that helps to block out dust, debris, and other harmful pollutants. Without cabin air filters, you'd be breathing in unclean air, and it's especially dangerous if you're someone who suffers from respiratory problems. To ensure your vents put out clean air, you should stay on top of your cabin filter changes.   Most of the time, you can find the air filter's change interval in the car owner's manual. However, you should change it out based on other factors: seasons, driving habits, etc. You can also keep an eye on the following warning symptoms of a dirty cabin filter. Foul Smell  When the filter is no longer effective, you might notice a musty odor coming from your vents. If the scent makes you and your passengers uneasy, it's time to go replace your cabin filter. Reduced Airflow If your HVAC vents are barely putting out any air, even with it on full blast settings, your cabin air filter could be the culprit. It may b ... read more

How To Make Your Wiper Blades Last Longer

How To Make Your Wiper Blades Last Longer

Wiper blades are one of the most helpful car features, but most drivers often overlook them. We only really notice them when they stop doing their job well and create unpleasant streaks or noises. Once these aging symptoms start to show, they can be very distracting and end up impairing your visibility rather than helping. Overall, it would be best if you had them replaced once they can't brush off rain or snow as well as they used to. We've compiled a list of ways you can help preserve your wiper blades. Keep your windshield clean. Wiping down your windshield will reduce the likelihood of dirt and debris sticking to your wiper blades, which causes them to wear down quicker. Wipe your wipers as well. The more often you use your wipers, the more stuff will get collected on them. The main thing to remember is to get the rubber parts of the blade, as they are the part that makes contact with the glass surface. Don't turn it on with a dry windshield.  Park your car out ... read more
