  • Replace old spark plugs: The spark plug plays a very important role when you are starting a car. It ignites the mixture of air and fuel. This controlled reaction energizes the engine and powers the vehicle.
  • Replace worn-down brake pads: Frequent braking while driving wears down the brake pads which is all that stands between the brake region and the rotor. If the brake pads become too thin, the rotor and other parts of the vehicle are left exposed. This can damage the car even further and accrue unwanted expenses.
