Hydroplaning happens when a layer of water comes between your tires and the road, causing your vehicle to actually float on top of the water. During this time, you may lose total control of steering, and in turn, the car. Hydroplaning usually causes the steering wheel to jerk and pulls the vehicle towards the puddle of water.

If you add studs or chains to the mix, the sound will increase as well, and you may feel as if you are driving an armored tank down the road. Keep ...[more]

When your car's "Check Engine" light comes on, it's usually accompanied by a sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach.
