Auto Chassis Repair in St. Catharines, ON
What is an auto chassis?
A chassis means the most basic structure of any manmade structure. In an automobile, the parts the chassis contains will depend on the make of the vehicle you drive, whether it is a Toyota, Honda, Ford, Hyundai, or something else. At the most basic level, a vehicle's chassis will consist only of the frame. In other cases, the chassis can include the engine, the transmission, the wheels, and/or even the driver's seat. A car's chassis provides a sturdy framework for the automobile's key components, so it is important to get the chassis checked regularly. If you are in St. Catharines, Fonthill, Jordan, Lincoln, Niagara Falls, or nearby, you can come to Boyd Automotive & Tire for a chassis repair today.
A chassis framework consists of various links that are joined together, either by forming or welding. Most cars have a united body, or monocoque, chassis, which is safe and has a low center of gravity. It keeps the vehicle stable when cornering at high speeds and responds well to warping loads. Due to the entire body being a load-bearing member, collisions are absorbed effectively, which minimizes the risk of injury during mishaps.
When I'm driving in St. Catharines, how do I know if my car needs chassis repair?
If your vehicle's chassis needs repairs, it means that your car's frame is bent and needs fixes. Some signs that there is something wrong with your vehicle's frame are:
- There is visible damage under your vehicle.
If you crawl under your vehicle and notice that any parts are bent or cracked, they need to be replaced as soon as possible.
- There is abnormal tracking of your vehicle.
A bent chassis can mean that your vehicle will tend to drive slightly sideways instead of completely straight, or your vehicle's general handling will be different than usual.
- The components of your vehicle no longer fit right.
If the frame is bent or otherwise impacted, your vehicle's components may struggle to fit the way it used to. The most obvious indication of this is your car's doors; the doors may refuse to shut or they may be separated from the frame. If this issue occurs and you are in St. Catharines, Fonthill, or surrounding areas, you can take your car to Boyd Automotive & Tire to get the chassis inspected as soon as possible.
- Your vehicle is making odd noises.
If you have recently been in a collision, make sure to pay close attention to your vehicle is making afterwards. If there are squeaking or grinding noises, this may be because of a bent frame.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms and you are in Ontario Province or nearby, you can come to Boyd Automotive & Tire in St. Catharines for an inspection today!
