  • 2002-2011 MINI Cooper Power Steering Pump Failure

    September 30,2016



    The 2002-2011 MINI Cooper and MINI Cooper S are compact cars designed not only for economy but to also offer a fun driving experience, so neither a pure hydraulic system nor a complete electrically assisted steering rack would be an appropriate choice for MINI engineers. Instead, the MINI Cooper uses a different system that is a hybrid of both hydraulic and electric steering systems which they call an Electro-Hydraulic Power Assisted Steering. This type of system uses an electric motor to drive the hydraulic power steering pump instead of a belt from the engine giving you the best of both worlds: it frees up some horsepower by not being driven off the engine belts but still gives you the supreme steering feel that is so important in a well-handling and fun-to-drive small car.

  • 2003-2014 Chevy/GMC Truck & SUV AC Compressor Failure

    September 28,2016



    If your part of the country is hot even just a few days out of the year, you already know how important the AC system is when you’re driving. Driving around town in stop-and-go traffic won’t give you enough cooling breeze even with the windows down and a long commute in the heat can leave you sweaty and your clothes stained. Worse still is hot summer rain without functioning AC. In most modern cars the AC system is also employed as a dehumidifier and when it’s broken you can end up with foggy windows that are not only annoying, but also incredibly dangerous when you’re trying to see well enough to drive.

  • 1996-2002 Audi A4 1.8t Turbocharger Problems

    September 7,2016

    Audi A4 1.8t Turbocharger Problems


    The Audi A4 had the distinction of being the first vehicle from the Volkswagen Group to be powered by the now legendary 1.8 liter 20 valve turbocharged engine which has gone on to be used in nearly every model line from each of Volkswagen’s major brands. If you think about it, there probably isn’t a day that goes by where you don’t see a car powered by one of these engines. In fact, Volkswagen is still producing it to this day while it continues to provide motive power in all of their brands as well as their industrial offerings. There’s even a version that is used in the FIA Formula Two Championship capable of 450hp!

  • 2007-2012 Dodge Ram 6.7L Cummins Turbocharger Problems

    June 29,2016



    Halfway through the 2007 model year, Dodge replaced the venerable 5.9 24v Cummins diesel with a new 6.7 liter model, in order to keep up with the ever-increasing competition from Ford and GM. In addition to a massive power increase, this also brought the Ram up to emissions standards not scheduled to go into effect until 2010, three years later than it was released. With small updates, this engine is still in production in Ram heavy-duty pickups today.

  • The 2016 Honda Civic 1.5 Liter Turbo: Next-Generation Advancement or Four-Wheeled Rolling Grenade?

    June 8,2016



    The 2016 Honda Civic Turbo represents a major change for an established platform. This is the first Civic ever offered in factory trim that also features a boosted engine of any kind. Previous versions of turbocharged or supercharged Civics were only achieved through the aftermarket or Honda’s race teams. This is, in fact, only the second try Honda has made at equipping a production model with a turbocharger, the first being the Acura RDX (more on that from the perspective of a parts professional later). Being only their second attempt, the stats aren’t unimpressive: 174 horsepower and 162 lb-ft of torque and 15.3 second quarter mile out of a 1.5 liter turbocharged engine
