Battery Replacement

In case you’re stressed over the health of your vehicle and finding issues in the battery often, then we suggest you to replace the whole unit. We can always provide assistance whenever required even you can schedule it on your required time. Our group of auto service specialists would recommend getting a vehicle battery substitution done in every three to four years. A battery life usually keeps going as long as 3 years, however in these hot temperatures, where the electrolytes of the battery vanish the water faster, you could require one a piece sooner.

This would in any case rely upon different components: the nature of the battery, your driving propensities, the climate conditions, and what sort of vehicle you own.

Most vehicle batteries wear out at regular intervals (say 3 years) even it is used normally. Since the battery gradually loses wellbeing each time the vehicle gets energized, three to four years is the normal life expectancy of all vehicle batteries. Extending past this reach to six years will give you a totally inconsistent battery. This isn’t suggested since more seasoned batteries present more broad wellbeing and execution gives that could bring about your vehicle stalling.

A tip for proprietors of new vehicles with inbuilt computers will use your vehicle all the more habitually. In any event, when your vehicle is inactive, the battery is being utilized by every one of the innovative segments in your vehicle. To battle this, going for short cruises all over your local assists with permitting the battery to re-energize.

Battery Test Report

It’s important to test your battery and electrical system regularly, not just when it’s starting to show signs of weakness. Proactively testing it twice a year will help reduce your chances of failure. Fully charged automotive batteries should measure at 12.6 volts or above. When the engine is running, this measurement should be 13.7 to 14.7 volts.

Lead-acid battery technologies have been used in energy storage applications for decades. The purpose of the battery performance testing is therefore to verify claims made by manufacturers about performance, integration, and installation of lithium-ion battery packs, and to disseminate the results to the public.

In the case of a test result which does not definitely indicate “Battery OK”, other influencing factors must be taken into account for better interpretation of the result.

  •  Age of the battery (loss of performance due to aging effects)
  • Vehicle mileage with the battery (battery deterioration during operation)
  • Previous deep discharge or long standstill period without maintenance charge (damage to the battery)
  •  Subjective impression by the driver – e.g., fewer start-stop moments than previously. In this case, the Battery Management System (BMS) reduces the load on the battery in order to protect it. This is a sign that it is time for a battery replacement

Nitrogen Filling

We have this service to enhance your tyre’s durability and we use Ingersoll-Rand Nitrogen Generator which puts out 98% pure Nitrogen. Here, both nitrogen and oxygen can permeate rubber, nitrogen does it much more slowly. It might take 6 months to lose 2 psi with nitrogen, compared to just a month with air. And nitrogen is far less reactive. It doesn’t cause rust or corrosion on steel or aluminum, and it doesn’t degrade rubber. Wheel surfaces stay smooth and clean, rubber remains supple and resilient.

Nitrogen also will not degrade the rubber seal in the valve core which extends valve core life and helps prevents core leaks.

Small bits of dust and debris as a byproduct of oxidative corrosion to the wheels and alloy rims can lodge in the valve core seat, causing air leaks.

Here are the benefits:

  • Less inflation pressure loss
  •  Reduced wheel corrosion
  • Prevents inner-liner rubber deterioration by oxidation
  • tires run cooler
  •  Increases tread life
  • Increases fuel mileage
  •  Helps prevent uneven wear

Tire-Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

A tire-pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is an electronic system designed to monitor the air pressure inside the pneumatic tires on various types of vehicles. A TPMS reports real-time tire-pressure information to the driver of the vehicle, either via a gauge, a pictogram display, or a simple low-pressure warning light. TPMS can be divided into two different types – direct (dTPMS) and indirect (iTPMS). TPMS are provided both at an OEM (factory) level as well as an aftermarket solution. The goal of a TPMS is avoiding traffic accidents, poor fuel economy, and increased tire wear due to under-inflated tires through early recognition of a hazardous state of the tires. This functionality first appeared in luxury vehicles in Europe in the 1980s, while mass-market adoption followed the USA passing the 2000 TREAD Act after the Firestone and Ford tire controversy. Mandates for TPMS technology in new cars have continued to proliferate in the 21st century in Russia, the EU, Japan, South Korea and many other Asian countries. As of November 2014, fitment rate stands at 54% of passenger cars.

For a tire-pressure sensor to be completely effective, it must have several capabilities to allow for the various maintenance personnel groups to use them.

First, each driver is required to do a pre-trip inspection, so it is beneficial if the tire-pressure monitor has an indicator that can be read without tools.

Second, it usually should have the ability to cover dual sets of tires in some fashion. It is also beneficial if the fill points can be centralized so that inflation can be accomplished easily without reaching through the small hand holes in the rims.

Third, it needs to have a wireless communication system that has an appropriate range and battery life. It is important that sensors regularly communicate an “I’m alive” condition, since having a dead sensor can be worse than having no sensor at all.

Fourth, these systems should have the capability to adapt to the changing of tires and trailers with minimal operator intervention. It is important to use a system having a longer range, since a repeater increases cost.

These requirements can be met by systems with external pressure sensors that connect to the valve stem on each tire. When tires are replaced, the sensor is moved to the new tire.

Although these systems can alert a driver to a hazardous blowout condition, they may not help fleets deal with slow-leaking tires, unless the driver reports them to fleet-maintenance personnel before it is too late. This has given rise in recent years to monitoring solutions that track the tire condition and send alerts to fleet-maintenance personnel. This allows them to schedule maintenance on a slow-leaking tire on an exception basis, instead of having to check each tire manually. Many fleets today admit that tire-pressure checking is a major problem in enforcement. Most have policies in place requiring the regular check of every tire, however, the practice is not terribly effective because of the sheer scope of the issue, and the fact that it is hard to get a complete record of all tire checking.

Tyre Balancing

Wheel balancing is the process of balancing the weight of a tire and wheel assembly so that it travels evenly at high speeds. Balancing requires putting a mounted wheel and tire on a balancer, which centers the wheel and spins it to determine where the weights should go. Every time a wheel is first mounted onto a vehicle with a new tire, it has to be balanced. The goal is to make sure the weight is evenly distributed throughout each of the wheels and tires on a vehicle. This process evens out heavy and light spots in a wheel, so that it rotates smoothly. If there is even a slight difference in weight in the wheels, it will cause enough momentum to create a vibration in the car.

In fact, wheels and tires are never exactly the same weight all around. The wheel’s valve stem hole will usually subtract a small amount of weight from that side of the wheel. Tires will also have slight weight imbalances, whether from a joining point of the cap plies or a slight deviation from perfectly round. At high speeds, even a tiny imbalance in weight can become a large imbalance in outward force, which could cause the wheel and tire assembly to spin in a heavy and uneven motion. This usually turns into a vibration in the car as well that could cause uneven and damaging wear on the tires.

Maintaining proper wheel balance is a critical part of maintaining the life of the tire. Also, proper wheel balancing ensures your vehicle has a smooth and vibration free ride.

Tire balance is also called tire unbalance or tire imbalance, describes the distribution of mass within an automobile tire or the entire wheel (including the rim) on which it is mounted.

When the wheel rotates, asymmetries in its mass distribution may cause it to apply periodic forces and torques to the axle, which can cause ride disturbances, usually as vertical and lateral vibrations, and this may also cause the steering wheel to oscillate. The frequency and magnitude of this ride disturbance usually increases with speed, and vehicle suspensions may become excited when the rotating frequency of the wheel equals the resonant frequency of the suspension.

Tire balance is measured in factories and repair shops by two methods: with static balancers and with dynamic balancers. Tires with large unbalances are downgraded or rejected. When tires are fitted to wheels at the point of sale, they are measured again on a balancing machine, and correction weights are applied to counteract their combined unbalance. Tires may be rebalanced if driver perceives excessive vibration. Tire balancing is distinct from wheel alignment.

Static balance:
Static balance requires the wheel center of mass to be located on its axis of rotation, usually at the center of the axle on which it is mounted. Static balance can be measured by a static balancing machine where the tire is placed on a vertical, non-rotating spindle. If the center of mass of the tire is not located on this vertical axis, then gravity will cause the axis to deflect. The amount of deflection indicates the magnitude of the unbalance, and the orientation of the deflection indicates the angular location of the unbalance. In tire manufacturing factories, static balancers use sensors mounted to the spindle assembly. In tire retail shops, static balancers are usually non-rotating bubble balancers, where the magnitude and angle of the unbalance is indicated by the center bubble in an oil-filled glass sighting gauge. While some very small shops that lack specialized machines still do this process, they have been largely replaced in larger shops with machines.

Dynamic balance:
Dynamic balance requires that a principal axis of the tire’s moment of inertia be aligned with the axis about which the tire rotates, usually the axle on which it is mounted. In the tire factory, the tire and wheel are mounted on a balancing machine test wheel, the assembly is rotated at 100 RPM (10 to 15 mph with recent high sensitivity sensors) or higher, 300 RPM (55 to 60 mph with typical low sensitivity sensors), and forces of unbalance are measured by sensors. These forces are resolved into static and couple values for the inner and outer planes of the wheel, and compared to the unbalance tolerance (the maximum allowable manufacturing limits). If the tire is not checked, it has the potential to cause vibration in the suspension of the vehicle on which it is mounted. In tire retail shops, tire/wheel assemblies are checked on a spin-balancer, which determines the amount and angle of unbalance. Balance weights are then fitted to the outer and inner flanges of the wheel.

Although dynamic balance is theoretically better than static balance, because both dynamic and static imbalances can be measured and corrected, its effectiveness is disputed because of the flexible nature of the rubber. A tire in a free spinning machine may not experience the same centrifugal distortion, heat distortion, nor weight and camber that it would on a vehicle. Dynamic balancing may therefore create new unintended imbalances.

Dynamic balancing has traditionally required removing the wheel from the vehicle, but sensors installed in modern cars, such as for anti-lock brakes, could enable estimating the imbalance while driving.

To a first approximation, which neglects deformations due to its elasticity, the wheel is a rigid rotor that is constrained to rotate about its axle. If a principal axis of the wheel’s moment of inertia is not aligned with the axle, due to an asymmetric mass distribution, then an external torque, perpendicular to the axle, is necessary to force the wheel to rotate about the axle. This additional torque must be provided by the axle and its orientation rotates continuously with the wheel. The reaction to this torque, by Newton’s Third Law is applied to the axle, which transfers it to the suspension and can cause it to vibrate. Automotive technicians can reduce this vibration to an acceptable level when balancing the wheel by adding small masses to the inner and outer wheel rims that bring the principal axis into alignment with the axle.

Tyre Change

A flat tyre is like the measles for drivers. You’re bound to experience it at least once. A flat occurs when the tyre no longer has the correct tyre pressure, the air escaping naturally – yet slowly over time, or due to a tyre puncture, and you need to change tyres.

They can be stressful, especially if it is late at night. You have to switch on your hazard lights and wait for roadside assistance if you don’t have a spare tyre.

It is possible to perform puncture repairs – but not all the time. If the damage is on the tread area, it still has a chance of repairs. But if your sidewalls are injured, you will need to replace your tyre completely. To make sure you stay safe, get a specialist to inspect the flat tyre after a puncture.

Your tyre tread has worn down beyond the legal limits.

Tread depth is the measurement from the bottom of your tyre’s groove to the surface of the tyre itself, usually up to the most raised part of the tread. The tread is what grips the road, especially when wet. The less tread, the more slippery and unsafe the tyre.

Australian law states that a tyre’s tread depth must be at least 1.6 mm deep. Any lower, your tyre is no longer roadworthy. Do not perform any tyre repairs because it is illegal to use and must be replaced.

Your tyre is badly damaged.

Your tyre is exposed to all kinds of obstacles and debris out on the road that can cause severe damage. These include potholes, kerbs, various sharp objects like rocks, branches, small stones, old cans, nails, and more.

They can puncture, cut or rip your rear and front tyres and even deform their shape. If you spot any large – or even small – visible perforations, get a tyre professional to check your tyre ASAP. Don’t forget to unmount the tyre and check inside as well. If it is badly damaged, you need immediately get new tyres fitted.

There are signs of unusual tread wear

There are instances when tyre tread wears down in unusual ways. Either just at the edges, or the centre gets bald first or tyre wear occurs in patches or random chunks throughout the tyre circumference. These are possible signs that you are driving with too much or too little air; the wrong tyre pressure in general.

There could also be underlying issues with your vehicle, like bad wheel balance and suspension problems or more. It’s a good idea to get a mechanic to inspect your cars and replace your tyres.

Your tyre is getting older.

When tyres get older, they lose their grip and start to get weaker.

Tyres don’t have official expiry dates (link to new blog post) – only dates when they were manufactured (DOT). The usable life of a tyre is not something that one can predict – no matter the date of production. Tyres experience the most stress when in use, on the trail or the road, and not while sitting in storage. puncture.

The following factors affect the life of a tyre much more than its production date: temperature and weather changes, driving styles, differences in tyre pressure, high speeds, heavy braking and accelerating, rough roads and terrain, road debris, and more.

As a precaution, if your tyres have been in use for more than five (5) years old, get them inspected once a year. You can also check the tyre replacement recommendations of your vehicle manufacturer, which you can find in your owner’s manual.

If your tyres are more than ten (10) years old, even if they still look good, rubber deteriorates and cracks with age, so it’s best to replace them.

Your tyre does not match your vehicle.

When your vehicle rolled out of the showroom, they came in a set of matching tyres for all four-wheel positions. If, at some point, you end up with different sized tyres or types of tyres (one summer tyre in the front, the other a winter, for example), replace them immediately. It may affect your vehicle’s stability and overall driving performance.

The importance of tyre replacement

Getting a new set of tyres improves almost all performance aspects of your car immediately.

But beyond that, it ensures your safety – and those on the road with you.

It’s vital to maintain your tyres properly, so you can catch the signs that you might need to change them early and before they potentially harm you – and others on the road.
