How To Get Warranty Work Done at the Dealership

A great way to ruin your day is to have your diesel engine parts or diesel injection pump go out on you. It's even worse when the parts aren't warrantied; or worse still, when the parts ARE warrantied by the manufacturer but your local dealership doesn't want to warranty the parts for you.

10 Things to NOT Put Off

With more and more used cars on the road today it is especially important to keep up with regular car maintenance. At some point down the road parts like the AC compressor or a fuel injector may unfortunately go bad, but there are certain things that every driver should keep an eye on to avoid unexpected car fails. The first of these are the brakes because our safety is dependent on them. Brake failure is easily avoided by checking the fluid regularly and by replacing it every 24,000 miles. In addition to the fluid, the pads should be changed out depending on their condition and use. Just because they still make your car come to a stop, does not mean they don't need any help!

The Function of a Tire Pressure Monitor Sensor

You may have never asked yourself what is a tire pressure monitor sensor. These sensors do exactly what you’d expect; they monitor the pressure within your tires. However, because these sensors are battery powered, over time they will fail and you will need to replace or know how to repair tire pressure monitor sensors. Don’t worry too much about this, when the time comes you will be warned via the little TPMS on your dash and it is a fairly cheap fix. A little fact about tire pressure is that if you are driving on tires that are 10% under inflated, you will see a 1% decrease on your gas mileage.

What is a Transmission Gearbox?

A Gearbox is a machine-driven process of shifting energy from one device to another. A transmission gearbox is most frequently positioned at the junction point of a power shaft, and is used to generate a right angle change in direction. It provides a range of gearing to multiply the engine’s torque. A direct connection from the engine to the road wouldn’t provide enough torque at the wheels to move the car. Thus, the gearbox’s multiplication of the toque is what helps overcome the car’s inertia and gets it moving. I hope the gearbox is better at multiplication then I am, or my car is not going anywhere.

Why Do Vehicles Have Tow Ratings?

We have all seen the truck commercials with bold claims and flashing graphics but what are they all getting at. What is all this towing of huge boats up hills and pulling stumps out of the ground? Well this is not to show the diesel fuel pump or diesel injectors are working, no this is to give an idea of what the truck can haul. Most commercials show a “Do Not Attempt” warning to keep people from destroying the truck once they buy it. The fact of the matter is that trucks can really only haul a specific kind of weight at very specific speeds.
