High mileage oil change

Can You Replace Your Car’s Alternator Belt On Your Own?
A car's alternator belt - otherwise known as a serpentine belt - is an integral part of a working alternator.
You can replace the belt yourself. However, like with any repair, we recommend a belt repair or replacement is only attempted if you're confident in your own abilities and have consulted your vehicle service manual.
However, if you have any doubts, contact an expert. Furthermore, if you decide to replace an alternator with Goodhood, we will also replace your belt too.
How is Goodhood Different from Brake Repair Shops?
Brake pads consist of friction material that is bonded to a sturdy steel backing plate.
When you push on your brake pedal, the friction material on these pads is forced against the inner and outer surfaces of the brake rotor with a lot of pressure.
This friction causes the tires on your car to slow rapidly allowing for a quick, safe, and controlled stop. However, this wears over time. After thousands of miles, this friction material eventually wears away - along with the brake rotors - and they require replacing. That's where we come in.
How Do You Check Your Brake Pads?
If you're noticing some brake noise or a decrease in stopping power, it may be a good idea to check your brake pads. In fact, we recommend making this a regular part of your car maintenance routine.
That way, you're more likely to catch the problem early on, prevent driving on worn brake pads, and ensure you're not running the risk of coming to a complete stop.
Let your brakes cool - Your brakes generate a lot of heat while in use. Therefore, we recommend you allow at least an hour after use before inspecting them.
Check your wheels - A buildup of brake dust is normal for your brake pads. As your car's brake pads wear, the amount of brake dust diminishes. When you begin to notice cleaner wheels, it can be a sign that your vehicle is ready for new brake pads.
Look inside your wheel (without removing your wheels) - you can see the pad through the holes in your wheel. To check the life of the pad, you'll need to determine its thickness. (you may need a flashlight to do so). A worn pad is no good for any vehicle. If the pads look thin, less than 1/4", it might be time to get them replaced.
You can also tend to your vehicle's brakes by removing the wheel. However, we recommend you only attempt this if you're very confident. Otherwise, contact Goodhood to service your vehicle's brakes.
