Understanding Automotive Concerns

I have never been someone who loves to deal with car problems, which is why I was really stressed when I came across car trouble.

Excess amounts of heat in a transmission can lead to a dangerous feedback cycle where the internal fluid becomes increasingly less effective, causing the transmission to overheat further. Without addressing the underlying cause of the problem and replacing the worn fluid, internal damage to the transmission is inevitable.

It's Those Little Things -- That Cause Scratches In Your Car's Paint

Yes, it's kind of a first-world problem, but the faint scratches are there, and they make your vehicle look terrible. You've got to figure out what caused the scratches so that you can prevent more from forming. But if you don't recall what could have happened to the car, or if the car was parked in your garage, that may seem impossible.
