  • The dangers of aquaplaning

    The dangers of aquaplaning can be avoided with a simple regular check. Keep save and arrive alive #SmokeBrake Aquaplaning or hydroplaning by the tires of a road vehicle occurs when a layer of water builds between the wheels of the vehicle and the road surface, leading to a loss of traction that prevents the vehicle from responding to control inputs. If it occurs to all wheels simultaneously, the vehicle becomes, in effect, an uncontrolled sled.

  • Avoid power steering failure

    If your car is starting to show early warning signs of power steering failure, you need to have it checked before it feels like you are driving a tank #SmokeBrake Almost all cars now have power steering systems to make it easier for drivers to steer the car. However, power steering failure is risky because the motorist can miscalculate the execution of a turn or lose control of the car and have an accident. Power steering failure can usually be avoided because it often happens gradually with enough warning signs before completely failing although a sudden failure is also possible. Here are some of the warning signs of a failing power steering system: Whining, shrieking or moaning sound as you turn the steering wheel are indicators of low steering fluid level. A freely turning steering wheel that requires a major effort to turn the car. Power steering fluid leaks if you see a pink, amber or red fluid on the ground under your car which has been parked for hours.
