This is a fairly common question among vehicle owners. Even though the term struts and shocks are often used interchangeably and they do the same basic job (damping the movement of the spring and stopping oscillation and bounce), they are not the same thing. A vehicle will have either a shock or a strut at each wheel, never both.

The major difference between shocks and struts is that a strut is a structural part of the vehicle’s suspension system where a shock is not. A strut is a crucial part of the steering system and greatly affects alignment angles. Struts are part of the car’s overall suspension system to support the weight of the vehicle and ensure a smooth ride.

Wondering how often do struts need to be replaced? Ask your auto repair technician for advice about car struts and how they affect car axles.

The alternator is a key component in your car's electrical system, turning the energy from the crankshaft into electricity to power your electrical systems and to help the battery recharge. Modern cars are loaded with sensors and computers that all require electricity. From lights to GPS systems, the alternator powers it all. When it starts to fail, it can create a domino effect of electrical problems that can ultimately cause a breakdown.

If you notice starting problems, you will first want to rule out the battery and starter. Have your auto mechanic test them to pinpoint the problem. If you know the signs of a bad alternator, you can have it replaced before it fails completely and avoids being suddenly stranded somewhere.

Wondering when do brakes need to be replaced? There is no clear-cut schedule as it will vary according to several factors:

  • Style of driving – stop-and-go miles, mountainous, or flat stretches of highway.
  • Weight of your vehicle – how many passengers, if any, and whether there is extra cargo in the trunk
  • Quality of the brake materials – the cheapest you could find, or high-quality pads and rotors
  • How you use your vehicle – towing, carrying heavy loads, or light recreational

You can rely on what you hear from your brakes if they are starting to go bad. When you apply the brakes, are you starting to hear a screeching sound? Many cars have built-in wear sensors that scrape against a brake disc when the pads needed replacing. Listen for squeaking, squealing, or metal-on-metal grinding. A simple brake service to clean the brakes can eliminate some minor noises, but persistent, prominent noises usually mean parts are worn out and it’s time for a brake replacement.
