Brake pads must always be replaced simultaneously on both ends of a vehicle's axle, as the different lining thicknesses (and possibly material types) will cause uneven braking, making the vehicle pull in the direction of the more effective brake. For most vehicles, replacing pads (and therefore linings) is very easy, requiring a minimum of tools and time — the linings are designed to be consumable and should therefore be easy to service.
Brake linings can also be found just about everywhere there are braking systems, from elevator safety brakes to spindle brakes inside a VCR. The form and materials are frequently different, but the principle is the same.
Suspension is the term given to the system of springs, shock absorbers and linkages that connects a vehicle to its wheels. Suspension systems serve a dual purpose – contributing to the car's road holding/handling and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure, and keeping vehicle occupants comfortable and reasonably well isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibrations, etc. These goals are generally at odds, so the tuning of suspensions involves finding the right compromise. It is important for the suspension to keep the road wheel in contact with the road surface as much as possible, because all the forces acting on the vehicle do so through the contact patches of the tires. The suspension also protects the vehicle itself and any cargo or luggage from damage and wear. The design of front and rear suspension of a car may be different
Timing belts are engineered to last at least 60,000 miles, with some newer designs lasting the life of the engine. Vehicle owners are urged to replace timing belts according to the car manufacturer's recommendations. If a timing belt fails completely, the entire engine will grind to a halt and the car will become inoperable. In a worst case scenario, the valves and pistons may drive themselves into the camshaft and become hopelessly bent or broken. There is usually very little warning before timing belts fail, so a timely replacement may be the best prevention.
An automobile water pump is part of the cooling system that is used inside most car engines. A functioning water pump is mandatory for the car to work, as it keeps the engine temperature below a certain threshold. Most vehicles have a combustion engine, which generates a considerable amount of heat.
A broken water pump will result in a steadily increasing engine temperature. If the car continues to operate without a cooling system, then the engine will overheat and stop working. A trained automobile mechanic is required to replace a broken water pump.
There are several things you may consider when checking your fuel pump for problems. Any number of things can go wrong with an overused fuel pump, and discovering the severity of the issues along with the causes can help you prolong the life of your pump and vehicle.
One of the early warning signs of a bad fuel pump is the development of a high pitched sound when the engine is first engaged. Different types of fuel pumps will make slightly different sounds. This phenomenon has been described as a sound somewhat like a tea kettle whistling, while others claim the sound was more like nails scraping across an old fashioned chalkboard. Regardless of the exact sound emitted by the fuel pump, it is important to get your vehicle to a mechanic quickly. The fuel pump is not likely to keep functioning much longer.
A head gasket is located between the head and the block of the engine. It keeps the head separate from the block, cushioning the two, and preventing them from touching and creating friction. A blown head gasket can occur when a vehicle overheats
Motor is a device that creates motion, not an engine; it usually refers to either an electrical motor or an internal combustion engine.
Motor mounts (engine mounts) are used to connect a car engine to the car frame. They are usually made of rubber and metal. The metal portion connects to the engine on one side and to the frame on the other. The rubber is in-between to provide some flexibility (so engine shake doesn't cause the car to shake). Newer cars may use slightly different mounts, however, there purpose is the same. Provide the connection from the engine to the car frame. The number of motor mounts varies from car to car.
A clutch is a mechanical device which provides driving force to another mechanism, typically by connecting the driven mechanism to the driving mechanism. Its opposite component is a brake, which inhibits motion.
Clutches are useful in devices that have two rotating shafts. In these devices, one shaft is typically attached to a motor or other power unit (the driving member), and the other shaft (the driven member) provides output power for work to be done. In a drill, for instance, one shaft is driven by a motor, and the other drives a drill chuck. The clutch connects the two shafts so that they can either be locked together and spin at the same speed (engaged), or be decoupled and spin at different speeds (disengaged).
