Top 4 Common Causes of Car Breakdowns Over Summer
Now don't worry, I looked around to find how they can be solved easily to bring back your car to live quickly. So hang around as we discuss them.
It is OK to expect a flat tire once in a while especially if the road is being repaired. Sometimes you can encounter nails or sharp objects that can prick the tire badly. Flat tires also occur when the valve stem is rubbed in the wrong way and damaged, or when you rub the tire hard against the road surface. You may not know how the latter rather fairly common behavior would work to cause a tire, so let me please explain. Rubbing your car hard against the road or sides can rip the tire, or cause separation of the tire from the rim as happens in case of a collision.
You also expose yourself to a flat tire by leaving the tire threads to wear excessively because debris can then tear through easily. And of course, flat tires are the major result of a collision or excessive pressure on the tires, or even the lack of adequate pressure in the tires such that sharp objects will easily find their way in through the rim edges and prick the tube.
So let’s then discuss how to solve this problem. The first is prevention because it is much better than a cure. You do know that setting a reminder to check the tire pressure. Let it be at least once a month. You need to be aware of the recommended pounds per square inch or PSI.
Then, there is the checking of treads, valve stem, rim, and other things as part of a regular maintenance practice at least once in three months.
In case it happens, simply pull over to a safe place, and then do a DIY replacement of the tire. It is easy to do. Otherwise, you can call for assistance to tow the car to the nearest auto mechanic or automotive mechanic shop.
