What Are the Most Common Auto Parts That People Buy?

Whether your trusty old 1990 Mazda Miata broke down on the 101, or you’re simply searching for how to save on a long overdue auto tune you, odds are that your problem is fairly common. What are the most common used auto parts “crisis areas”?

The engine is a common source of agitation, unsurprisingly.

You might be able to tune your engine, if you’re lucky. Or you might need to replace the engine entirely. Purchase appropriate components: different engines need different types of fuel, e.g.

Tires are also a big ticket item.

A flat, worn, punctured, or internally structurally compromised tire can put you at risk for a serious accident and can also stress other components and systems of your vehicle.



Brakes are also a very common source of trouble.

For obvious reasons, brakes must function impeccably in different circumstances. If the brakes fail to perform up to spec, the root problem may have nothing to do with the brakes themselves. The root issue could be your braking fluid or hydraulics or even a distantly related system. You might be surprised how much money you can save by purchasing used auto parts at an auto salvage yard.

Auto transmissions also create headaches for thousands of drivers every year in the Bay Area.

If you own a manual transmission, you need to replace your clutch regularly. Standard transmissions can be challenging to drive perfectly — it’s very easy to ride the clutch or otherwise shift gears with less than race car driver like precision. Worn-out transmissions and clutches and other components of the transmission system can degrade automotive performance and potentially put you at risk on the road.
