3 easy home remedies for common car problems

We all have been in a situation where we are driving and suddenly our car starts making an unfamiliar sound.  It could be anything from a grinding noise to the tell-tale hiss of a flat tire, but if you don’t know how to handle it, then you’re left with one option – call for help. The good news is that there are some easy fixes for these problems that will hopefully allow you to get back on the road as soon as possible without having to go through the hassle of trying to figure out what’s wrong with your car or find someone who can do it for you.  Below are three home remedies for common car troubles: brake squeaking, oil leak, and battery terminals corrosion.

  • To fix an overheating engine, try adding water to the radiator or using coolant. If these don’t seem to be working, check your air filter or replace it if necessary.  Once you’ve done this, watch for any signs of improvement before continuing on with other steps. 
  • Next up is checking all hoses for cracks and leaks as well as replacing them if necessary – which will also solve many problems at once since they are usually damaged when there are issues with the radiator cooling system.
  • And lastly, you can replace your thermostat so that it doesn’t overheat because of a bad sensor anymore!
