Auto Parts for Necessary Repairs




Pages: 1 2

Repairing your automobile can always cause certain headaches that are just not needed. Even though there are professional car repair shops that will help you repair your car, they will also charge a pretty penny for the work that they do. In fact, most of the time the price that people pay for car repairs in professional shops does not come from the auto parts themselves, but is the labor charges that have to be paid. One great alternative to professional car services that repair your automobile is to do it yourself. There are thousands of individuals who dislike taking their car to auto shops, which is the main reason that they do most of their repairs themselves. On the other hand, if you don’t mind getting a little dirty there are always simple options of repairing your car yourself. Here are some of the more common jobs that need to be done from time to time and the auto parts that you’ll need for them.

Changing Your Brakes

This is a project that usually has to be done at least every other year. Of course, it depends totally on the type of car you have as well as how old the car is that you’re driving. But brakes get worn down just as any of the other auto parts do, and they need changing from time to time. Before you start out on the journey to change your brakes, the first thing that you’ll need is the equipment. But how much do you need to change? Many people simply think that they’ll need only the brake pads; however, it’s important to consider how long one has been driving with their brakes worn down in the first place.

For a total brake change, the auto parts that one is going to need are the brake pads, discs, and calipers. Depending on whether or not the rotors are worn down also, you may need those. Also, most cars come with a set of brake shoe sets that you will need to replace as well as everything else on the list of auto parts that you’ll need.

Changing Oil and Fuel Filters

This is a whole other different job in itself and requires a different set of auto parts . Many professional auto repair shops will charge about $30 to perform an oil and oil filter change, and a fuel filter change costs about $50. However, one can do these jobs easily and simply by themselves with only paying for the auto parts . In order to change the oil filter the only thing that needs to be done is to buy the oil filter itself, which usually only costs around $5.00, and change it while you’re underneath the car changing your oil. On the other hand, the fuel filter is a little bit more expensive and the process is quite

    wow no lie i just ordered my drive side axle assembly for pickup at advance auto parts and the other is being shipped to my house within the end of the week.. that shit got me worried that someone would drive a car like that. The PGT's are amazingly built starting with the engine and their parts i can't believe that the car would still be driveable after seeing the wheel that loose.

    You cannot go to auto zone or advance auto parts to get anything except parts for cars or pickups. At O'Reilleys they have the books to cross reference parts for heavy equipment plus things like the larger WIX filters.

    no idea on sizes, I just get my wrenches and sockets in trays and try until I find the right one even myself. But the lines going into the cooler have special tools to remove them and pop em out, any auto parts store can sell you that.

    Auto Salvage = Rescate / Salvataje de autos/ carros/ coches.

    Quality Used Auto Parts = Repuestos usados de calidad para autos/ carros/ coches

    In Spanish you have different words for 'car' depending on where you are from. So you can use 'auto', 'carro' or 'coche'.

    My shop generates 500 gallons of waste oil per year. It's a lot of work to dispose of that much oil. Although I could pay 50.cents per gallon to haul it away. To heat with natural gas would be very expensive as I have a backup Gas furnace and know 1st hand. I assumed auto parts stores collect it then pay to have it hauled away where it is burned for heat in a waste oil furnace someplace. I don't think waste oil is remade into new oil. is it?

    …. It's one year later after I posted that about the old thing of my 4r70w transmission not wanting to shift out of first gear. It turned out to be the ECM or whatever you call it., the computer. I had an auto electric shop do a diagnoistic check and they said the computer wasn't “responding.”. I ordered a remanufactered one from 1A auto parts online, about $150. Stuck it in myself, simple, no problem, 15-min job. It hasn't missed a shift since.
