What are the Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Thermostat?

What are the Symptoms of a Bad or Failing Thermostat?

A thermostat is an essential part of running a car engine because it regulates the temperature using coolants. The thermostat, which is a cooling component, prevents the flow of coolants to the engine until the engine heats up. It has a sensor that opens it when the engine is running hot and restores it to the radiator's optimal operating temperatures. In case the car engine heats up, and it remains like that, then the engine's performance will be affected because there is no way it will get to optimal working temperatures on its own. Before that happens, knowing how a normal and faulty thermostat works are vital for a car owner, driver, or mechanic. For that reason, the common symptoms that indicate a failing thermostat include: 1. An overheating engine This is the first and most alarming symptom of a failing thermostat. When the temperature gauge is reading very high after starting the engine, and it remains the same for a while, that is a bad thermostat s ... read more

What Causes Brake Rotors to Warp?

What Causes Brake Rotors to Warp?

For starters, brake rotors are those large discs behind the car's wheels. They move together with the wheels, so when the driver clamps down the brake pads, it will hold them, and the car would stop. Brake discs usually get heated as the vehicle moves. The discs need to dissipate the heat so fast because the brakes might overheat and press down again. In the worst-case scenario, the brake system may get damaged. The surface of the brake rotor may become uneven, making the braking system to be less effective and jittery. This is what's called warping. How the brake rotors get warped There's a misconception that when the brake rotor is said to have warped, then it means they are bent and wobble while rotating as it happens with the bicycles, but that's not the case. For a car, for warping to take place, warping means the brake rotors are defective. The temperature required to make them bend is very high and difficult to achieve because the metal used ... read more
