Starting your own automotive repair shop or automotive workshop is the dream of good mechanics everywhere. I have lived that dream. The graceful beauty of Packard lines, the roominess of the car’s interior, the quiet good taste of its upholstery and appointments, the silent ease of motion, and the sense of security which comes with tremendous power under sure control-all contribute to the mental satisfaction and physical repose of the Packard Eight owner.
British cars have always been a symbol of heritage culture history and perhaps style over the year and indeed decades, as classic as they may seem to appear now there still a lot to pinpoint in terms of class when compared to cars from other regions.
I don’t know why auto manufactures are not more diligent about sealing the interior of vehicles. Toyotas have a gap where rodents can get in through the fresh air intake. I have mouse proofed three in the last 15 years. I have to take the grill and wiper motor off and fasten quarter inch mesh screen over the 3×5 inch air intakes vents. I had to fortify my Hyundai by placing quarter inch mesh over some vents in the wheel wells … Read more
The EGR system can cause several issues when something is wrong with it. Follow this Real Fix to see how a fouled EGR valve caused a code P1726 on this 2004 Ford F250 Super Duty with the 6.0L engine. Quad drivers is an old GM expression back in 80’s when we had quad driver codes. Some Saturn vehicles used quad drivers into the 2000’s. This would be a regular driver. I had the pleasure of chatting with the owner, a real straight-to-the-point man name Dan Jones. He was very easy to get along with, and didn’t mess around. This is an art to him, and he takes it very seriously. So does his team.
Based on confidential interviews with the IP departments of ten UK and German companies in the automotive industry A small and highly-focused sample, in an industry where players and fields of technology are relatively easy to identify: it will be good to run this research again an a less homogenous sector, such as industrial software applications, the survey revealed wide variations in practice.

Electronics in the car have come a long way from the first in-car radio in 1930, and 1978 when Mercedes-Benz introduced the first production car with an optional electronic four-wheel multi-channel anti-lock braking system (ABS) from Bosch. Replacing the condenser, which is located behind the grill, may involve removal of the front bumper, hood or grill depending on the model. Since the condenser is in front of the radiator, it is also prone to collect dirt, leaves and plastic bags. Bent over fins could also affect the efficiency of the condenser. A fin comb is designed to straighten bent fins. Two lines connect to the condenser; one from the compressor and the other is the liquid line. Before installing the new condenser, check to see how much refrigerant oil needs to be added.
This enables a more flexible architecture with a high degree of reuse of the software code base between the different domain/area controllers. In turn this allows the complete vehicle architecture to be built in a flexible manner, enabling the same code base to be reused across generations and differing variants within a model range.

The former owners and founders of North Eugene Automotive began the company in 1984. Since then it has become a familiar location to local North Eugene (and other parts of the city) car owners. In January 2013, Rick and Dee LeChance (founders) decided to retire and sold the business to Brian and Sarah Slater. Brian (aka Slater) has been the lead technician for 8 years and is very familiar with the customers and the care of their cars. Let’s go first over the basics of an electrical relay to help make sense of the following tests. Ryan I am sorry but this is the case…or you have an extraordinary talent and a Master will do it or you will always have a little gap compared to those that have done 4 or 5 years of design school.

See what makes DuPont one of the most successful science and engineering companies in the world. Not following Margot’s and Destiny’s advice about painting elastic turned out to be a BIG mistake. After admiring my lovely paint job I decided to try on my sandals before applying a protective clear top coat. To my horror, as I slipped them on the beautiful, even coat of Halo Blue Gold paint on the elastic strap across my instep fractured into dozens of tiny, ragged-edged stripes. Aaarrggghhh!!! I had no one to blame but myself and was kicking myself ignoring the experts’ explicit advice.
Designers and manufacturers of these types of cars want to bring the passion back to driving. Sure, your car can get you from point A to point B and has XM radio and GPS (yada yada), but have you ever turned your radio off, opened your windows and just listened to the road? Press down on the gas just a bit more than you are use to and just feel the car come to life. The synergy of an automobile and driver is unparalleled. This feeling is where designers build their art.
