Clutch Problems – It can sometimes be hard to tell when a clutch is on the way out as it is a gradual process usually – but it is worth taking note of, especially if you have an older car that has done a lot of mileage.

Electrical faults are a very common thing with cars both new and old, and you need to have them repaired by a qualified mechanic, as if you don’t know what you are doing you risk making the situation a lot worse!
