If your brakes are screeching, squealing and wailing at you, they may be trying to tell you something. Brakes are designed to make noise when they are near the end of their useful life. In other words, if your brakes are whining you may be weeks or even days away from doing damage to your brake rotors. Install new brake pads
today and avoid any more expense and embarrassment. You'll be glad you did.

I'm putting together a glossary of welding and metalworking terms to try to help people who are just getting interested in doing automotive metal work. Sometimes it can be hard to stay focused with all of the specialized terms being thrown at you. Hopefully this glossary will be a decent go-to if you are doing some reading on welding, fabricating and other metal-related jobs. It will continue to grow as we see more information that needs to be added, so you can bookmark it and use it as a resource. Check out the Welding and Metalworking Glossary
and start brushing up!

being a waste of time unless a problem indicates a clog or other issue. I fall into the "better safe than sorry" category and flush my cooling system. Where are you on this issue?
