We took our car in we bought a tire and had it mounted we also had the oil changed and a lube job.


Modern cars don't really have grease fittings anymore.
If the car was an older car it might have had some.

Does a mazda 2006 have grease zerks


Check your vehicle's owner's manual service guide; contact the service or parts dept at a local Mazda dealership; visually (look) at the steering linkages, or call your local auto parts store...I know that some models have sealed units with no lube points and others that have lube points...the consideration is model and are the steering components stock or aftermarket?

How to chassis lube a 2010 chevy malibu


You are not taking a boot off the grease fitting. The little rubber boot you're removing is the dust boot for the bleeder valve on the brake caliper. The 2010 Chevy Malibu,as with most cars, have non-serviceable suspension parts.

The Turn signal doesn't work in cold weather. Do I need to replace a fuse?


The grease or lube that its used at the contact points, either the switch or relay, gets thicker when it gets cold. I assume that this is probably and older vehicle. As time goes by the lighter oil components of the grease, which keep it pliable, slowly evaporate making the grease almost putty like. When its cold its mutch more of a problem and want let the contacts work properly.

Are there front-end grease joints that need lube periodically or are they sealed and don't require fresh grease?


There are places to lubricate the joints and such in the front end. The ball joints certainly have lube points if nothing else does. Anything that could be metal to metal contact needs periodic lubrication. Check your owners manual for Lubrication types. Most are using a molediumdysulfide based lubricant in the newer vehicles. It is easily available at Walmart and most auto parts stores. Just don't use a graphite based Lube unless it is specifically called for. If your owners manual is short on information on this you should pick up a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle. It will specify lube points and intervals and what type of lubrication to use.

Lube and oil change schedule requirements


Usually you want to change the oil every 3,000-5,000 miles. Have the lower ball joints and outer tierod ends, if they have grease fittings.

How do I lube the front chassis?


Depends on the vehicle...some have no serviceable joints. If you're under the car, and you see grease fittings on things like tie rod ends, and ball joints, just take your grease gun in hand and give each one 3 to 5 pumps of the ol' gun, and you're lubed. In reality, the rubber boot under most serviceable fittings will expand a little, and then make a popping noise as excess grease begins to ooze out. It's usual, and that sound and/or seeing excess grease coming out away from the grease fitting are your clues that you have applied enough grease. You'll wanna be systematic about it, looking for each fitting on each side. Vehicles are sometimes asymetric, having one more to one side than the other, but usually involves a steering component, and should be considered "in the center", while the others remain "paired" left and right. Once out from under the vehicle, (or from underneath, if you're able to reach) check the top of each A-arm too (there's an upper and lower on each side) by reaching over/around the top of the front tire, and feeling for a "zerk"/grease fitting there too. These usually point up. Wipe up excess grease and repeat every couple of oil changes. It ain't rocket surgery, so don't be afraid to jump in there.
