Transmission problems
The transmission is one of those things that people fret about when issues appear. People tend not to know as much about the transmission as they do the other parts of their motors. But there are some fixes with are a lot easier than you might expect. Www.carnewscafe.com has a great list of four easy to fix problems in your transmission and how to tackle them.

The brake pads
One of the more common problems in cars is that, at some point, the brake pads will wear out. Most times you’ll discover this when your drive is interrupted by a horrible screech. Don’t let the worn brake pads do more damage to your car. Replacing them is relatively easy once you have the right tools at hand.

Spark plug replacement
If your car is starting to lose performance and giving you less miles for the gallon, it may be time for a spark plug replacement. Doing it yourself can save you at least a hundred in bills. For best economy, it may even make sense to replace spark plugs early, say every 30,000 miles. Depending on what kind of engine you have, it may be easy to do yourself or it may need a professional touch.

Replacements
Well, if the part is beyond repair, you’re not going to DIY it. However, even getting a replacement is something you can just as easily do yourself. Lots of garages will assume the offer of getting you a replacement part. If you don’t mind a bit of friction, decline and get it yourself. Order replacement parts like transmission direct from services like www.trannyman.net. It could save you a few hidden costs.

General maintenance
The main way to make sure you’re not stopping at the garage all too often or finding yourself billed more than you expected for a check-up? Take care of your car. Most drivers go too long without their check-up anyway, so lessen the risk by reading up on this guide from www.dmv.org. Change all the oils that need to be changed, change the fuses and keep an eye on the tire pressure yourself.
