Dos and Don’ts of Your Brakes

When it comes to your brakes, do you know the low down? 

European Auto Repair Ann Arbor

From maintenance and safety to driving etiquette, how you use your brakes make a difference! Here are some dos and don’ts when it comes to braking safety:


1.     Don’t ride your brakes – This common braking behavior can do more harm than good. If you keep one foot on your brake pedal at all times, you’re wearing out your brake pads and other mechanisms.

2.     Plan your slowdowns - Excessive braking will wear out your brakes faster. Your rotors and brake pads will need to be replaced sooner costing you more money in the long run rather than practicing safe stopping.

3.     Don’t use your brakes unless you need to – This may sound crazy, but rather than constant braking, instead maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you so that you don’t need to keep hitting the brakes. Tailgating will cause you to frequently brake, even increasing your risk of getting into an accident.

4.     Brake with your engine – If you release your accelerator, you’ll feel your car slow down. This driving technique will allow you to avoid unnecessary wear and tear on your braking system.

5.     Don’t slam on your brakes – If you slam on your brakes often, you’re causing unnecessary stress on your braking system including the pads, rotors, and calipers. This will also irritate drivers around you, so be safe out there! Of course, there are times when slamming on the brakes is necessary to avoid a collision, but you shouldn’t slam on your brakes as normal practice.

6.     Do bring your vehicle to an experienced shop to have your brakes inspected. – When was the last time you had your brakes inspected? Are you experiencing a squeaking or grinding noise when you try to stop? You may be in need of a brake replacement. Call ArborMotion for European auto repair at 734-761-1088  to schedule your appointment today! 


Happy motoring!

What You Need to Know About Oil Changes

Do you know how old your oil is?

european auto repair Ann Arbor

If you can’t remember, chances are it’s too old and you need an oil change.


You’ve probably had people telling you to stay on top of oil changes ever since you bought your first car. Motor oil needs to be changed regularly to maintain performance and reliability. Oil breaks down over time, collecting harmful particles to your engine.

Oil lubricates and cools the tightly packed parts inside your car’s engine. Ignoring your scheduled oil changes leads to metal-eating sludge, reduced efficiency and eventually engine failure. Synthetic oil should be changed every 5,000 miles and regular oil should be changed every 3,000 miles to keep your engine healthy.

If you do nothing else to your vehicle, changing engine oil will ensure that the most expensive component, your car’s engine, will stay fundamentally healthy.

We’d love to be your go-to repair shop. Bring your vehicle to ArborMotion for an oil change and we’ll have it running in tip-top shape in no time! No question is too big or small. Call ArborMotion for asian and European auto repair at 734-761-1088  to schedule your appointment today! 

What To Do If You Smell Gas or Exhaust Fumes in Your Car

Does your car reek of exhaust fumes?

european auto repair Ann Arbor

If you smell gas or exhaust fumes inside your car, you could have a leaky exhaust. You should immediately take your car in for service to have it diagnosed by a professional automotive technician. 


What’s causing the smell?


Let’s investigate! If you smell any of the following, you could have an expensive repair on your hands:


Gasoline: If you smell gasoline, you could have a damaged fuel injector leaking gasoline, or you could have a clogged gasoline filter, or a bad airflow sensor. You may also have black smoke emitting from your tailpipe. 


Rotten Eggs: This foul smell isn’t good. If your exhaust smells like rotten eggs, it’s likely caused by a damaged catalytic converter – which usually converts harmful gases into less harmful ones. If this becomes damaged or stolen, it can reduce your car’s performance.


Sweet Smell: This spells trouble. If your exhaust smells sweet, you could have a leaky or broken head gasket. As a result, your coolant can burn up, releasing a sweet aroma from your exhaust.
