Some Vehicles Cannot Be Aligned Or Brought Into Specifications.


- Vehicles are built within specifications, and will remain so unless something changes.
- The problem may not be an adjustment, but it can be diagnosed and corrected by a professional.

A Battery Will Not Explode.



- There two types of battery explosions external and internal.
- The most probable cause is from a combination of low electrolyte levels in the battery and a low resistance bridge formed between or across the top of the plates called "treeing" between a positive and negative plate. 
- A second possible cause is a defect in the weld of one of the plate connecting straps.

My Tire Just Blew Out For No Reason; It Must Be Defective.



- In most circumstances, the source of air loss is something cutting, puncturing or bursting the tread or sidewall of a tire.
- Blow outs also happen because people don't check for damage and drive on tires with huge egg like growths on the tyre walls and cuts so deep in them you can see the ply structure underneath.
- Overheated under inflated tires can also be one of the reasons.

Will A Battery Lose Its Charge Sitting In Storage?



- Depending on the type of battery and temperature, batteries have a natural self-discharge or internal   electrochemical "leakage" at a 1% to 25% rate per month.
- Higher temperatures accelerate this process. A battery stored at 95° F (35° C) will self-discharge twice as fast than one stored at 75°
- Over time the battery will become sulfated and fully discharged.

On Really Cold Days Turn Your Headlights On To "Warm Up" The Battery Bef...


On really cold days turn your headlights on to "warm up" the battery before starting your engine.

- While there is no doubt that turning on your headlights will increase the current flow in a car battery, it also consumes valuable capacity that could be used to start the cold engine.
- Externally powered battery warmers or blankets and engine block heaters are highly recommended if the vehicle cannot be parked in a heated garage.
- AGM and Ni-Cad batteries will perform better than other types of wet lead-acid batteries in extremely cold temperatures.

Is UTQG Rating Directly Related To Milage?


Is it true that the Uniform Tire Quality Grade (UTQG) rating is directly related to mileage for all tire manufacturers?

- The treadwear or mileage portion of UTQG is an indicator within that brand of tires.
- It's not a good indicator between brands of tires because of the broad interpretation of the standard.

Will A Battery Lose Its Charge Sitting In Storage?


A larger capacity battery will damage car

- A starter motor will only draw a fixed amount of current from the battery, based on the resistance of its load.
- A larger current capacity battery supplies only what is required. It will not damage your vehicle.
- Using batteries with higher or lower voltage or too tall can damage your vehicle.

My Old Battery Lasted Less Than 18 Months, Is This Normal For A Battery?


My old battery lasted less than 18 months, is this normal for a battery?

- Batteries disintegrate over time, this is due to the acid slowly decaying the components within the battery. 
- How long a battery last depends on a number of factors including, the initial construction of the battery, the climate in which the vehicle is operated, how often the vehicle is used and if the battery and vehicle have been maintained.

A soft brake pedal is the result of pad fade

A soft brake pedal is the result of pad fade


- This is caused by overheated brake fluid, not overheated pads. Repeated heavy use of the brakes may lead to "brake fade". There are two distinct varieties of brake fade
- A) When the temperature at the interface between the pad and the rotor exceeds its thermal capacity, its first indication is a distinctive and unpleasant smell."
- B) When the fluid boils in the calipers air bubbles are formed. Since air is compressible, the brake pedal becomes soft and "mushy" and pedal travel increases. This is a gradual process with lots of warning.

After S Jump-Start, Your Car Will Soon Recharge The Battery.


After a jump-start, your car will soon recharge the battery.

- It could take hours of driving to restore a battery's full charge, especially in the winter.
- That's because power accessories, such as heated seats, draw so much electricity that in some cars the alternator has little left over to recharge a run-down battery.
- A "load test" at a service station can determine whether the battery can still hold a charge.

Do Original Equipment Provide Optimum Performance?


Do Original Equipment Provide Optimum Performance?
- No, thats not true. Many vehicles will perform better with tires and rims that are different than what was installed originally on the vehicle.
- For example, a BMW comes with 18" rims/tires, but it will perform better in snow with 16" or 17" tires and rims with the same tire height.- Better still, the smaller set up, known technically as minus sizing, will save you money.

Change Your Oil Every 3000 Miles


Change your oil every 3000 miles

- Fact—Lighter and More Effective Oils Can Extend the Oil Change Period.
- In the days before oils formulated with detergents, emollients and other additives to keep engine parts cleaner, the 3000-mile threshold for oil changes was a useful benchmark. 
- Modern oils are lighter while still retaining viscosity, and keep engines cleaner. It's not a problem now to go for up to 5000 or 6000 miles between oil changes.

The Brake Fluid Is Low, Filling It Will Fix The Problem.



If the brake fluid is low, filling it will fix the problem

- Brake fluid isn't like most other fluids in your car, it doesn't get used up as you drive and is intended to increase the hydraulic pressure of your brakes.
- Having low brake fluid usually means one of two things--either the brake pads/shoes are very low or there's a leak in the system.
- Either way the car needs maintenance, and filling the brake fluid back up will do relatively little good.

All-Season Tires Have Better Wet-Road Grip Than Summer Tires


All-season tires have better wet-road grip than summer tires
- An all-season tire trades wet-road traction for enhanced mobility in snow and in sub-freezing temperatures. 
- Improving a certain tire performance, almost always means diminishing another—or several others.
- An ultra-high-performance all-season tire may offer better wet grip than a high-performance summer tire or, especially, a grand-touring summer tire.

A Fluid Change Will Help Correct Transmission Problems.


- Changing the fluid can often times amplify your problem or worse, create new ones. 

- Often times when you have very dirty fluid it is a sign of a part that is wearing excessively and emitting abnormal amounts of debris. 

- On rare occasions a fluid change will eliminate enough debris to eliminate valves sticking up due to foreign abrasive material ie. metal or clutch material.

Cheaper And More Profitable Comebacks On-The-Car Lathe.



New rotors prevent comebacks and are cheaper and more profitable than an on-the-car lathe.

- In some cases, a new rotor should be machined to match the vehicle with an on-the-car brake lathe.
- The main advantage of these lathes is that they are able to cut a rotor in its operating plane.
- This means that the rotor is machined to match the hub.

Change The Oil On The Same Schedule


Should you change your oil on the same schedule wherever you drive?


- Gasoline Composition Dictates Oil Changes.
- North American refiners produce gasoline that has a higher sulphur percentage than either Japanese or European gasoline.
- You will need to do more frequent oil changes when driving in the USA or Canad.

Should you warm up your engine for several minutes before driving?


- That might have been good advice for yesteryear's cars but is less so today.

- Modern engines warm up more quickly when they're driven.

- The sooner they warm up, the sooner they reach maximum efficiency and deliver the best fuel economy and performance. But don't rev the engine high over the first few miles while it's warming up.

Can A Spare Tire Be Use Driving Fast And A Logn Period

Is it true that you can drive as fast and as long on a temporary or compact spare tire as you can on a regular tire.


- In general, all-season tires are the best tires for year-round usage.
- However, if you live in an area that receives little plowing or heavy snow, you should consider switching to a snow tire during the winter.

Test The Alternator By Disconnecting The Battery With The Engine Running

Test the alternator by disconnecting the battery with the engine running.

- A battery acts as a voltage stabilizer or filter to the pulsating DC produced by the alternator. 

- Disconnecting a battery while the engine is running can destroy the sensitive electronic components connected to the electrical system.
- In the 1970s, removing a battery terminal was an accepted practice to test charging systems of that era. That is not the case today.

Steel-Belting In Radial Tires Prevents Punctures

Does steel-belting in radial tires prevents punctures and flats from nails, glass and other debris?


- Any pneumatic tire can be punctured and lose air.
 - While steel-belted tires are durable, they are not indestructible.
- Avoid road debris and visually check your tires regularly to catch air-loss problems.

In the long run, you save money by leaving all-season tires on all year

"In the long run, you save money by leaving all-season tires on all year."


- Running all season tires in the winter will not only compromise safety, but also shorten the life of the all season tire. 

- That means you will have to buy a second set sooner than if you switched to snow tires in the winter.

Myth : Vehicles Require Premium Gasoline

Some say that some vehicles require regular fuel benefit from a tank of premium gasoline. 


- Earlier, leaded gas and high-compression engines demanded the occasional tank of premium gas that included detergents to clean out fuel injectors.
- Stick with your vehicle's recommended octane level to get the adequate detergents to keep your fuel system clean.
- 87, 89 and 92 correspond to regular, mid-grade and premium gas, respectively.

Is Premium - Grade Fuel Better Than Regular - Grade ?

Is premium- grade fuel better than regular- grade?


- Reality: Most vehicles run just fine on regular-grade (87 octane) fuel.
- Using premium in these cars won't hurt, but it won't improve performance, either.
- A higher-octane number simply means that the fuel is less prone to pre-ignition problems, so it's often specified for hotter running, high-compression engines.

Tuesday, 15 April 2014

For Premium Performance - Use Premium Gas

For premium performance, use premium gas.
- Why pay more money for premium fuel unless your vehicle's engine was designed & built to use extra octane.
- Nowadays,there are fewer high performance cars & trucks that actually require premium fuel.
- Unless the owner's manual recommends premium fuel, just keep using regular.

Replacing a Clogged Air Filter on Modern Cars Improves Performance but Not MPG

Replacing a Clogged Air Filter on Modern Cars Improves Performance but Not MPG


- Replacing a clogged air filter on vehicles to the present— or diesel engines does not improve fuel economy, but it can improve acceleration.

- On an older vehicle with a carbureted engine can improve both fuel economy and acceleration by a few percent under normal replacement conditions.

New Valve Stems Are An Unnecessary Expense When Buying New Tires

New Valve Stems Are An Unnecessary Expense When Buying New Tires :


- The valve stem is the primary air seal on a tire and wheel.
- With age the rubber can get old and brittle and fail, the steel mechanism inside the valve stem - could rust or just wear out, causing a sudden loss of air pressure.
- Extra money spent on new valve stems gives you that added measure of confidence in your new tires.

Get Used Filters for Your Vehicles

Filters are used in fuel dispensing pumps or as a fuel / water separator on large diesel engines. Filter’s blackening may lead to mixing of oil with fuel. Dirty or messy filters lower the air flow to the engine which leads to more soot generation. Such filter problems, if not taken care in time, affect the engine and its performance.

Are you worried for the non performance of your vehicle’s engine? It may be due to filters. Just get it checked.

It is better to purchase a used filter rather than purchasing a new filter. It saves your money. Also you get good quality used filter as per your vehicle’s exact need, that too with guarantee. Just find the right place which provides you need filters for your vehicle in good conditions along with guarantee at reasonable rates.

Automation : Boon to Human Life?

Today, no doubt that ‘Car’ is the necessity of life. Previously, we used to learn in school days that the basic necessities of life are Food, Clothing and Shelter. But today in the age of technology, can we say that our needs are limited to Food, Clothing and Shelter???

Sources Are Available… Just Find Genuine One…

Sometimes destiny plays crucial game with you and you don’t know where you are carried away with your life!!!

A severe accident that took place at Michigan was horrifying. The girl was dead on the spot and the parents were hospitalized immediately. The parents are saved with great difficulties.

It was a very sad incident that touched my heart. Later, a thought came into my mind ....what about their car???

The couple had suffered great financial loss and wanted to sell the car. But after a lot of search, they discovered that they would get as good as nothing. Instead it would be better to scrap it.

Luckily, the couple later found a place where they finally got a good deal for their car.  Above their expectations and to their surprise, almost each and every part of the car, which was in good condition, was sold separately and they got good returns for it; totally above their expectations.

I am sharing this information to make you aware that you can get advantages of such sources. You just need to look for the authentic one…

Multiple Profits, My Mechanic Friends!!!

Hi! I am a mechanic by profession and I own an automobile repairing garage. With honest efforts of past 7 years, now I am well established with 10 more people working for me. Now I have good and repeated client base.

Being ready with almost all types of auto spare parts is the first and most important requirement of my business. I never compromise in that. But again it becomes a dead investment. Few months earlier I had a pile of auto parts which were not in use and I could not manage to sell them. My money was totally blocked.

One of my friends opened my eyes with the information about an authentic salvage yard where those people also deal in used auto parts. The place was not far from my place so I visited them some day.

To my surprise, they had all types of genuine used automobile OEM spares which were best in condition. All the parts were clean and proven for their performance. It was really hard to believe that those were used parts and that too for such low prices! These people give guarantee on the purchased parts.

They also had some used cars for sell which were really in good conditions. I saw few cars with complete makeover done. I was really amazed to see the workmanship.

I managed to bring my dead investment into cash with these people. From that day onwards I am dealing regularly with those people and surprisingly earning more and more profits.

I am sharing this for all my mechanic friends. Don’t waste time. Find an authentic resource and take its advantage.

It Is Not That We are Always Right!!!

Friends! I have some great news to share with you all!
We all love to purchase new things for ourselves. Then, when it comes to our car, why should we think of taking a chance of buying used spares? This is what I always thought earlier.

But Guys, it is not that we are always right!!!
Let me explain...

I accept now that I was surely under a wrong impression. It happened so that one of my friends and I both happened to purchase transmissions co-incidentally, at the same day. But guys only difference was that I purchased a new transmission whereas my friend purchased used transmissions.

Now, after a period of over a year or so, my car is working perfectly fine. But then my friend’s car is also delivering equivalent performance!
Now I feel I was a real fool to have spent so many bugs for new transmissions...coz my friend has absolutely no problems even with the used transmissions!!!

So Guys... if at all you have a choice between new and old transmissions or any other spare parts, I would definitely suggest that you please give a second thought before putting in lot of expenses for new products....when you could get the old but still the best ones at a much lower price!

What do say Guys????

Used Engine - A Wise Opt For The New Engine!!!

I heard an argument between two friends yesterday. It was all about what is the better choice? To purchase new engine & transmission or to go for used ones!!

If I have to choose between the new and used engines, I would wisely opt for the used engine and transmission as well. The reason being that to purchase a new engine and transmission for a used car, would definitely be too much expensive! I can surely save my bugs and still get an equivalent performance, if I opt for the used machines. They being checked and certified, definitely perform well!!!


Do you have any other opinion?
