Have you noticed that your vehicle has recently become more difficult to handle? If you’re missing the days when your commute was smooth and comfortable, it may be time to replace components of your suspension system. We have highly-experienced technicians who can inspect your struts, shocks and suspension to see if they are in proper working order.
The Motorist Assurance Program experts have determined that the useful life of a strut or shock is over at approximately 50,000 miles. Here at Prestige Cage Services, we recommend that you have your shocks, struts and suspension visually inspected each time you have your vehicle serviced. We can take a look at these vital elements of your vehicle and let you know if there are any problems that may be affecting the comfort or safety of your ride.
Signs to inspect Shocks or Struts
Thankfully, it is pretty easy to tell if your shocks or struts need to be replaced. Here are some of the most common signs to watch for:
Noticeable swaying or bouncing while driving (rough ride)
Leaning or “pulling” while changing lanes or turning
Unusual sound originating from the suspension system
Dipping forward of the front end when braking
Original parts that have not been replaced for 50,000 miles
Visually inspecting for oil leaks which indicate they have lost their charge.
If your vehicle is showing these warning signs, it’s best to have your vehicle inspected right away. There’s no reason to wait to replace the components of your suspension system. Because of new and improved technologies, in many cases, the aftermarket strut or shock is better engineered than the original factory installed parts.
Understanding Your Suspension System
Your vehicle’s suspension system is made up of many different parts designed to connect the frame to the wheels. When working properly, the suspension system allows for the ideal amount of motion and stability between the wheels and the vehicle body. A healthy suspension system performs several additional important functions, including:
Keeping tires firmly on the road’s surface to extend tire life
Stabilizing steering for easy of handling and safety
Minimizing road noises and vibrations for increased comfort
When the weather is still sunny and warm, few people are likely thinking about their car batteries and the potential problems that cold weather brings. While car batteries are engineered to deliver many months of trouble-free operation, certain factors can diminish a battery’s ability to power your vehicle. Regular battery maintenance and on-time replacement are two important strategies that will help keep your vehicle free from problematic battery power interruptions.
Tips for Replacing Batteries
A battery’s charge can be tested with an at-home tester or during routine maintenance and repairs conducted by Prestige Cage Service. Knowing the percentage of charge still available in a battery will help you determine the right time to purchase a replacement. Note that buying a second-hand battery is not recommended. There are some important reasons for this, such as:
It can be difficult to determine how much charge is left in a second-hand battery, even with an at-home tester.
Battery manufacturers produce batteries with a particular intended life span; purchasing a second-hand battery may prevent you from getting the full value.
Exchanges or refunds may not be possible to obtain from a second-hand dealer.
Begin planning your battery replacement when the weather is still warm. Cold weather has the potential to reduce a battery’s effectiveness when starting a vehicle. Vehicle owners can also plan ahead for battery testing or replacement before taking their vehicle on a long drive. Thinking ahead about the driving you intend to do in the next few months will help you make the right purchasing decision.
Keep the Power Flowing
Dirt, grime, grease, and battery acid discharge can collect on battery terminals and prevent electrical power from discharging in an optimal manner. Dirty battery terminals can prevent efficient vehicle starting and could even cause power interruptions during operation. A stiff bristled battery brush will help vehicle owners maintain the terminals. Simply use the brush to clear away surface grime from the terminals and battery clamps. Sprinkling a little baking soda onto the terminals and then activating it with regular tap water is a very effective way of neutralizing any acid that has discharged from the battery. Use the brush again to clear away the remains.
This is a simple way for vehicle owners to conduct basic vehicle battery maintenance at home. For concerns that are not resolved through cleaning and testing, more detailed diagnostics may be required. If you have concerns about your vehicle’s battery or about other system components, just contact us today.
Battery Maintenance Advice for Ugandan car owners:
Use a round brush with stiff bristles to clear away surface debris from the terminals
Sprinkle some baking soda on each of the terminals
Gently pour tap water onto the terminals and allow the baking soda to react
Use the round brush again to clear away the next layer of debris
Repeat this process until the terminals are clean
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, talk to us today – we’ll be glad to offer advice and assistance.
If you’ve ever driven a new vehicle, chances are you remember what it’s like to have a smooth and comfortable driving experience. Unfortunately, after thousands of miles and quite a few years, your car may not be driving as smoothly and efficiently as it once did. While this is common in vehicles as they get older, once a vehicle hits the 50,000 miles mark and about every 50,000 miles from there on, it may be time to replace your car’s suspension system components and get a wheel alignment.
WHY WHEEL ALIGNMENTS ARE IMPORTANT
Understanding how important a wheel alignment is for your vehicle will help you see the benefits of having it done on a regular basis. The more you drive your vehicle, the more contact your wheels have with the road. Since your wheels are constantly exposed to road conditions, such as pot holes, speed bumps, etc., plus the weight of your vehicle, the components of the suspension system, which provide support and help to steer and maneuver, are subject to significant wear and tear.
WHAT AFFECTS A VEHICLE’S WHEEL ALIGNMENT?
Maintaining your vehicle’s alignment is crucial to maintaining its safety, helping to steer and drive it, increasing the lifespan of your suspension system and preserving tire treads. Alignment affects braking, ride quality, and even fuel economy. An alignment ensures that all tires work together and remain in line at all times for proper contact with the road. To get a better understanding of how a wheel alignment works, you must first understand how your wheels function.
In order for your vehicle to maintain proper wheel alignment, the camber, caster, and toe-in all need to be aligned properly. Here is a brief overview of the camber, caster and toe-in:
Camber: the angle of the tire from the top to bottom, involves the angle of the wheels’ attachment and affects traction, handling, and cornering.
Caster: the angle of the tire from the front to back inside the fender well (kick out similar to a front wheel on a bicycle) affects stability and steering ability.
Toe-in: is the distance difference from the inside of the left wheel to the inside right wheel and affects stability, cornering, tire tread wear, and tire life.
A wheel alignment is like the tuning process for a piano. After it’s been played for a certain period of time, the keys need to be tuned so the piano can maintain proper sound and function. The same goes for your vehicle; after it’s been driven for a certain time, the wheels need to be readjusted and in some cases a four-wheel alignment may be required to ensure the vehicle remains safe, stable, and drivable.
If you notice your tires squeal when going around corners, if your tires are properly inflated, it’s likely your vehicle is in need of an alignment. Protect your vehicle and yourself by stopping by a Sun Auto Services repair facility today for a free wheel alignment check with our state-of-the-art machines. You can trust our technicians to inspect and repair your vehicle’s wheel alignment and suspension system properly.
Keeping up with your vehicle’s system flush needs is an important part of routine maintenance. The fluids in your transmission, power steering, coolant and braking systems are vital to the performance and longevity of your car or truck’s core components.
Here at Prestige Cage Service, we understand the importance of preventative auto care. A small investment now can save you a bundle in the future while ensuring reliable performance from your vehicle every day. Whether you drive in normal or severe conditions (such as stop-and-go traffic or extreme temperatures), we offer a full spectrum of services to keep you on the road and running strong.
Brake System Flush
Brake fluid amplifies braking force while protecting major system components from excessive wear.
Moisture, heat, and dust from the outside environment can impact brake performance and lead to costly repairs.
Under normal driving conditions, it’s recommended that you flush your brake fluid every 30,000 miles or every two years to ensure optimal performance and prevent leaks or squeals.
Coolant System Flush
Coolant is vital in preventing your engine from overheating. It also protects against freeze-ups in cold weather, provides lubrication for your water pump and prevents rust in the system.
Severe driving conditions can cause components to degrade over time, leading to corrosion and deposits that clog your engine’s primary means of releasing heat.
Most manufacturers advise replacing coolant fluid every 50,000 to 100,000 miles in normal conditions, or every 30,000 to 50,000 miles in severe driving conditions.
Power Steering System Flush
Power steering fluid provides lubrication and transfers energy between hydraulic components, making it easier to steer your vehicle.
Heat and pressure resulting from everyday use impacts power steering fluid performance, causing added wear to gears, pumps, and valves. By keeping up with the maintenance of this system you can help prevent costly repairs for failed components.
Your power steering fluid should be replaced by time and mileage, prior to it becoming brown or dark brown in color.
Transmission System Flush
Transmission fluid is as vital to your transmission as motor oil is to your engine because it provides the physical pressure needed to perform key functions, such as shifting, as well as transmission engagement and disengagement.
Overheating and fluid contamination account for 90 percent of automatic transmission failures.
Transmission fluid should be flushed every 30,000 to 50,000 miles under normal driving conditions.
Performing system flushes in a timely fashion helps keep your vehicle running smoothly and saves you money in the long run.

Free Complete External Checklist for Transmission Repair
Check Fluid Levels – Your transmission fluid level is crucial to the longevity of your transmission. It acts as the coolant, the hydraulic fluid, and the lubricant, so it should be free of particles, clear and odorless.
Road Test – We conduct a thorough vehicle road test where we check shift sequences, variations in operating ranges for gear selections, slipping, etc. We encourage you to accompany our driver/technician during the road test where he can explain to you what is happening with your transmission.
Perform an Engine Operation Test – A Sun Auto Service technician will check for possible transmission-related problems, however, if your engine is not functioning properly, it will have a definite effect on the efficiency of your transmission. We will diagnose the problem with your vehicle, whether it’s the transmission or the engine.
Check Axles, CV Joints, Boots and Other Potential Factors – It may not be the transmission after all! A failing universal joint (u-joint) sounds bad and shakes the car, but it’s a minor part that’s easily replaced. CV joints and boots can do the same, although they a bit more costly to replace. Our expert technicians will help determine the real problem, transmission or otherwise.
Check Transmission and Engine Mounts – A bad mount can cause the engine and transmission to move under power and change the shifting sequences of your transmission.
Look for Leaks and Seeps – A bad seal or a loose connection could cause a loss of fluid significant enough to drop levels to a point where the operation is affected. This is normally a simple repair.
Inspect Drive Shaft and Undercarriage – Moving parts can cause a problem that might sound or act like a transmission problem when actually it’s really not. This is where it pays to have an expert assess the problem.
Check all Linkages – Worn and damaged parts can cause erratic behavior while shifting, or even issues with computer and sequence processing.
Inspect Cooling System Operation – Your vehicle’s cooling system keeps the temperature of your engine operating within a normal range. We also check the operating temperature of your transmission to make sure it is operating normally. Overheating can kill a transmission. We also check all other peripheral areas for leaks including brake cylinders, power steering, etc.
Inspect Differential Operation – We check for any leaks and look for evidence of bearing or gear noise.
Inspect Transmission Pan – We lower the transmission pan to check for excessive metal in it or in the filter. If we notice any broken metal parts in the pan, we look further into the internal parts of the transmission. These metal parts may indicate that parts within the transmission will continue to get worse (or may have already failed), causing even more interior damage and increasing your cost for repairs.
