5 Basic Car Terms Every Driver in Weatherford Should Know

5 Basic Car Terms Every Driver in Weatherford Should Know

| By: Christian Brothers Automotive

To protect our loyal customers, no matter where their car is taken for service, the staff at Christian Brothers Automotive Weatherford has found 5 key terms every driver should know.

1. Dipstick

The ASE-certified technician will pull out your dipstick to visually inspect the level and quality of a liquid (usually the oil), as well as determine whether you need a replacement.

2. Spark Plug

When your key turns in the ignition, the spark plugs ignite the fuel-air mixture to power the engine. However, a burnt-out spark plug will not properly ignite. Furthermore, a spark plug covered in water could flood the engine.

3. [Battery] Corrosion

If water sits on the battery’s outside casing, the battery will corrode. Corrosion is also caused by leaking acid and rust built up under the hood. A corroded battery will not function properly and could lead to a dead engine.

4. Brake Pad

Gradually, your brake pads wear out. When our ASE-certified professionals inspect your brake system, they’ll check the brake pads’ thickness to ensure they’re the proper width to safely stop your car.

5. Timing Belt

The timing belt is covered in bumps, operates the camshaft, is typically made of reinforced rubber, and is responsible for opening and closing valves at the proper time. The camshaft is a fundamental moving component in any combustion engine.
