Shock absorbers in vehicle

Tires may be the only part of a vehicle that physically meets the road, but your shock absorbers are next in line. Working with the suspension springs, they absorb shocks from bumps and cracks in the road, while simultaneously controlling bounce and body roll.

brakes

Obviously, your brakes are essential.

From Bowles Automotive in Mooresville, here are some common brake issues, and why you should fix them.

When driving around town, your vehicle's engine needs clean air to burn the fuel – and it needs a lot. In fact, a typical vehicle needs about 216,000 gallons of air for every tank of gas. All that air passes through a filter that catches the dust and dirt. Eventually, the filter gets completely full, and because the filter can only hold so much, dirt starts getting through. At Bowles Automotive in Mooresville, we want to help you get the best air quality in your vehicle, but first, we want to explain the process of where this dirty air is going.
