Have you ever noticed the telltale signs of a hard-to-get-crush (or crush)? Maybe you’ve seen cars blow up in pit-faults. You might have been watching TV late at night when the whole track goes flat out. There are other clues that can help you know if your car is suffering from an inferiority complex or a more serious problem. Let’s look at the five most common signs of a damaged or soon to be broken drive.
The first sign is a familiar sound: rear bumper noise. If the car’s tires are not properly balanced on the ground, they will hit each other and the noise is almost ear-splitting. A loose-fitting rear bumper is probably the easiest way to detect a problem on a long drive and the most obvious place to check. However, the airbag inflating or deflating is also a symptom of a potentially serious problem. Check the airbag immediately after a crash.
Next, you should press the accelerator instead of driving your car. This is because when you shift the gears, the weight of the car changes, along with the pressure in the tires and airbags. When you press the pedal instead, the weight of the car is evenly distributed and there is no change in the pressure in the tires. The best time to do this is when you come to a stop and there is no longer forward momentum. You should do this as soon as you stop. Otherwise, when you shift gears, the weight shift causes the pressure in the tires and airbags to suddenly go up.
Another sign of a problem is the appearance of a hole in the tire. These usually appear in the area where the center of the tire meets the wheel; a thin edge or thick edge may also appear at the edge where the tire meets the frame. Look for any sign of blood, either in the shape of a nail or a small amount of blood, in order to know for sure that the pressure in the tire is not being affected by too much tire iron.
Another very important thing to look for is the front end. Usually, there will be a dent on the front end. This may be a front end blowout as well. If not, it could be a crack or a divot. The crack may not be visible depending on the visibility from the side. Watch out for any sign of wear, such as divots or dents.
Finally, look for the side blowout. A side blowout is a blowout on one or both sides of the tire. Usually, a blowout like this will cause the tire to crush and will be very dangerous because you will have less control over the car. The tire is loose and the car will begin to ramble when you try to drive it. If there are noticeable cracks, nail holes, or divots, you should not drive the vehicle. To fix this type of a blowout, the tire needs to be replaced with a new one.
