Batteries and Electrical System

Car repair shop in North York

Batteries provide the electrical power essential to vehicle operation. Because they play such a vital role within the vehicle’s operation, batteries should be given attention while conducting routine maintenance on your vehicle. A couple of simple steps can help car owners prevent power interruptions and inconvenient dead batteries. Remember, as the weather gets cooler, batteries are going to have to work harder to deliver the amperage required to start your vehicle; this means that the time for car battery replacements and maintenance is during autumn, not winter. The team at JK Auto Garage is here to help with battery testing, replacement, and other vehicle care services, including replacing the starter and alternator.

The following is a brief overview of the electrical system that makes transportation possible:

Make Regular Battery Testing a Habit

The best way to know if your battery is getting low on power is to test it on a regular basis. Annual testing is a recommended vehicle battery maintenance strategy. Batteries are typically priced according to the number of years the battery is good for. While useful life has the potential to vary a little bit, in general, you can expect your battery to comply with the manufacturer’s stated lifespan. Because batteries with a longer life tend to cost more, buying a second-hand battery is not recommended. Even with a tester customers are unlikely to be getting the full value of any battery they purchase unless a brand-new item is acquired from an auto parts dealer or service shop.

Regular testing will help you keep an eye on the available charge left in your car’s battery. As the charge decreases start shopping for replacements.

Keep Terminals Clean

The battery terminals provide safe means to connect the battery’s power cells with the electrical system of the vehicle; this occurs via metal clamps connected to a bundled collection of wires. In optimal conditions, these clamps and terminals fit firmly together and thereby provide the correct flow of power. However, dirt, grease, and grime can interfere with this connection and interfere with the electrical current. The result is interrupted or unavailable battery power.

Battery maintenance requires thinking ahead and planning for the driving you intend to do in the future. If you have any questions about the best way to care for your vehicle’s battery, just speak with a member of the JK Auto Garage  team.

Charging System

    The charging system is the life force of your vehicle's electrical system, consisting of three main mechanisms: the alternator, various circuits, and the voltage regulator. The alternator:
        Provides power to the electrical system, and
        Recharges the battery when the car is running.

    The circuits act as conduits for electrical power. The voltage regulator controls the voltage passed through the circuits. Remember, all of these components require consistent attention and maintenance. It's not just your battery that needs to be replaced; if any components fail, your power source is reduced to a lifeless, twenty pound paper weight.
   

Starting System

    It may seem obvious that the starting system turns your vehicle's engine on, but did you know that this process consumes more electrical power than anything else your car does? The starting system consists of three components working one after another. These components include: the ignition switch, the starter relay (or solenoid), and the starter motor.
    Here's how it works:

    Turning the ignition causes a small amount of current to pass through the starter relay, causing a stronger current to flow through the battery cables and into the starter motor. The starter motor cranks the engine, forcing the piston to create enough suction that draws a fuel and air mixture into the cylinder. The ignition system creates a spark that ignites the mixture and your engine starts.

Belts & Hoses Replacements

The Importance of Belt and Hose Replacements

Did you know that your vehicle's belts and hoses are significant parts performing crucial functions of your engine's charging, air conditioning, and cooling systems? Our car care experts at JK Auto Garage understand the value of routine belt and hose maintenance and replacement intervals for your vehicle. In fact, regular replacement of your car’s belts and hoses may help prevent pricey repairs down the road.

Benefits of Routine Belt and Hose Maintenance

Belts and hoses have short life spans as a result of mileage, age, tension, and oil contaminants. Other exposures have the potential to create cracks and leaks, such as harmful chemicals, vehicle vibrations, and engine heat. Some signs that the belts and hoses may require replacement include:

    5 years or 60,000 miles since last replacement
    Air conditioning failure
    Complete loss of power due to alternator discharging
    Coolant or other fluid leaks
    Illuminated dashboard lights
    Steam rising from the engine
    Grinding or screeching noises when the engine starts

Routine inspections and maintenance of belts and hoses is always necessary, but even more so during the summer season when increased temperatures may accelerate deterioration of the rubber components. Because belts and hoses can be difficult to inspect visually, an expert at one of our JK Auto Garage service centers will be happy to ensure the belts and hoses on your car are in perfect working condition.

Air Filters

Nearly everyone enjoys stepping outside and getting a breath of fresh air. Well, you don’t differ from your vehicle in that respect, as the engine in your car also needs fresh air to work the way it is supposed to. An engine air filter will assist with ensuring optimal engine performance and fuel combustion. The cabin air filter, on the other hand, keeps the air at a high-quality for you and anyone else in your vehicle.
