Driving a new car off the dealership lot can be quite an exhilarating experience. But, the moment you leave that lot as a new car owner, your car has already started to depreciate between 5 percent and 20 percent, depending on which car expert you ask. As your car gets older, problems will inevitably arise, making it necessary for you to purchase new parts, such as an air filter, a fuel pump, or tires. Here is a look at some of the most popular replacement car parts available.
Because of their relatively short lifespan of 12,000 miles, air filters make the list of most popular car parts. Car experts often recommend replacing a car’s air filter either every 12,000 miles or a once a year, more frequently if in a dusty area. Replacement air filters are typically made of sturdy pleated paper. However, other types of air filters – made of such materials as cotton and foam – are also popular with replacement air filters.
Grinding or squeaking of brakes often warn car owners that it’s time to get the brakes checked and, most likely, changed. How often brakes need replaced generally depends on the type of driving – highway or city, for example – for which the vehicle is most commonly used, although brakes often have a minimum lifespan of 50,000 miles. Today’s cars typically feature antilock brakes which, when slammed suddenly, do not lock up and prevent skidding, and either a drum brake or a disc brake.
A fuel pump typically lasts a minimum of 75,000 miles. When a fuel pump needs replaced, the car will generally sputter upon trying to turn it on, simply will not start at all, or the car’s power will decrease when attempting to accelerate. Vehicles generally have either an electric fuel pump, which is common in cars with a fuel injected system in the engine, or a mechanical fuel pump, used in cars with carbureted engines.
Car ignition coils often have a lifespan of a minimum of 75,000 miles. A car that simply dies in the middle of driving often means the ignition coil may need replaced. A mechanic may recommend a pencil coil, which is a small coil, or the coil near plugs, which are typically the most reliable type of coil due to their lower operating temperature.
Steam coming out of a car engine or a car’s temperature gauge rising unusually fast both generally mean it’s time to buy a new radiator. Buying a new radiator is usually cheaper than having the old one repaired. Consumers can choose from radiators made of aluminum, brass, copper, or plastic with most modern cars using radiators made from aluminum or plastic. Plastic radiators are generally much cheaper than the high-performance aluminum radiator, which is lightweight and typically found in high-performance vehicles.
Tires typically require replacing when the tire has a minimum tread of 2/32 inch and generally have a lifespan of between 25,000 and 50,000 miles, depending on the type of car. What type of tires to purchase depends on the type of car and the performance sought. Touring tires promise easy handling and comfort when driving in both wet and dry conditions. Winter tires are specifically designed for handling in snow and ice while high performance tires offer better traction in both wet and dry conditions and at higher speeds.
