    The possible reason why your check engine light is activated would be a damaged gas cap, your oxygen sensor needs to be replaced or your vehicle needs new spark plugs or plug wires. Situation like this should not be prolonged as this will potentially damage your car as well as it could risk your safety. The best solution for this is to get your engine checked to your trusted car shop for possible repair. Hope this helps!

    Brakes not locking

    This problem is usually caused by an improper rear brake adjustment. Other than what you've mentioned, I think you should check if your rear brake pads are already worn out. However, it's still advisable to have it diagnosed and checked to your trusted car shop to avoid worsening the problem. Hope this helps!

    Powered driver's seat (slight movement)

    Got the same problem with my car months ago. In my case, the hose clamp fix is the solution. But sometimes it's not the driver's seat mechanism that causes the problem but rather the motion within the leather seat cushioning. However, I suggest you can visit your trusted car shop to have it checked for possible repair. Hope this helps!

    Spongy, squishy or mushy brakes might cause huge trouble if not addressed immediately. It should undergo brake inspection and service. The possible reason for the problem is having air in the brake lines, brake line damage, old or low brake fluid, cylinder wear or damaged disc brake caliper.

    Oh, I'm terribly sorry to hear that. Anyways, no need to panic you just need to do an immediate action to avoid further damage. The first you can do is to remove all the water out of your car as much as possible. Next is you can use a fan to clear out moisture and keep your doors open. Another thing you can do after doing the mentioned tasks, you can check the areas and if you feel that it's slightly wet you can dry it off by using a blow dryer. Additionally, you can put some moisture-absorbing products like baking soda or silica gel. However, if you want to secure that your car won't have a problem in the future you can visit your trusted car shop to have it check especially the electricals. Hope this helps!

    Dark Color Oil after oil change

    Great information! Thanks for sharing your thoughts
  13. A few days ago, I took my car to a car shop nearby for an oil change. However, after a week of usage the oil is black. Is it normal for the oil to be dark after oil change? Do I need to visit a car shop to check-up and possible repair?
