For starters, it is not always true that car wheels rotate backward. Very few cars have them rotating in the opposite direction. In most cases, the center of gravity of a car moves from the front to back of the car and the car rolls best when it does so. As for why this happens, turns out there is a simple mathematical explanation for this - since the force of gravity on a car is equal in all points, if you put your hand on the side that is being rolled with and move your hand to an opposite side, you will feel no change in force as long as you are going in a straight line.
Steering wheels are the interface between the driver and the road. They help the driver steer the car, and they also help keep the car steady and stable on the road. There are many parts to a steering wheel, but the most important ones are the hub and the bearings. The hub is the part that holds the steering wheel together. It has an outer rim that connects to the steering column and an inner ring that holds the spokes. The spokes connect the hub to the hub carrier. The hub carrier is the part that the wheel rests on. It has a hub cap and a spoke hole. A steering wheel bearing is a small bearing that is inside the hub. It is usually made of metal or plastic.

A car battery is one of those things that you really don’t think about until you need to. When you do, it’s usually a last resort and a source of anxiety. But, as a professional auto mechanic, I’ve been called upon to change a car battery more times than I can remember. I’ve also spent countless hours helping people learn how to do it themselves, so I decided to share my experience with you.
Some of the fluids coming out of your transmission can be normal, but there are others that should be checked. If you notice any of these symptoms and see that your fluid is not what it should be, then you need to bring your vehicle in for a diagnostic check up.
Cleaning a car is a pain, especially if you have kids who spill food and drinks on the seats. Having a baby in a vehicle makes it even more difficult because children's baby gear is notorious for getting dirty and staining seats.

Car shaking during acceleration is a very common concern among car owners. The car shakes the most when accelerating from a complete stop. However, I have noticed that it seems to shake less if I accelerate up to 10 MPH before accelerating smoothly toward my destination.
Starting a car with a bad starter can be really difficult because of many reasons. One of them is the fact that it takes more time to start a car with a bad starter. The starting process can take even several minutes, which can cause irritation for both you and other drivers on the road.
It is common for a fan clutch stuck engaged in the engine compartment of a car. This can happen when the fan is not spinning at all or when it is spinning too fast. Either way there is no air flow and this will cause your car's temperature to rise quickly. The only solution to this problem is to take your car into an auto shop and let them remove the fan clutch from under the hood.
The variable-assist power steering in a car assists the driver when initially turning the steering wheel. When the steering wheel is released, power assist reduces, allowing the driver to maintain control of the vehicle over rough road surfaces. Variable assist power steering in cars has been offered as an option on several makes and models by General Motors, Ford Motor Company, Chrysler Corporation, DaimlerChrysler, Volkswagen, Audi AG and Nissan.
