Any driver who understands preventive maintenance, knows that “if it ain't broke, don't fix it” is not always the best auto advice. Most of the time, replacing a part before it breaks is much more cost effective for residents than after the component has failed. A good example of this is the serpentine belt. The serpentine belt gets its name because of its circuitous path around the engine. The serpentine belt is driven by the engine and powers a number of other components and various other systems, such as: 1. The serpentine belt spins the A/C Compressor. This component contributes to the cool air generated from the air conditioning system. 2. The serpentine belt powers the alternator. The alternator generates electricity for use in the vehicle's electrical systems and to charge the battery. Without the alternator, the battery wouldn't last more than a few miles, leaving the vehicle stranded. 3. In many ... read more
Towing in Cartersville, drivers figure that anything they can attach to their trailer hitch can be towed by their vehicle. This is not the case. If you're going to do any towing, you should be aware of safety issues, Georgia towing laws and the potential liability. Understanding tow ratings is important for safe towing. A tow rating is the weight limit that your vehicle can safely tow. Manufacturers calculate the tow rating for every vehicle, but different options on the vehicle can affect that rating. Drivers need to read the towing section in their owner's manual to get the specific tow rating for the vehicle they own. Your trailer hitch also has a weight limit, and it may not match the tow rating for your vehicle. Your vehicle may be rated for 10,000 pounds (4,500 kg) but if you have a 2,000-pound (900 kg) hitch limit you shouldn't be towing more than 2,000 pounds (900 kg). If you tow a 10,000-pound (4,500 kg) trailer on that hitch, it could bre ... read more
