This may be quite a challenge but we see many automakers and Tier 1s today accepting the challenge and adopting these practices. I have been asked so I am posting the web site. They ship all over the world… If you call them they are very friendly. Connect the meter’s positive (red) probe to the battery cable terminal you just disconnected.
Thanks for your suggestions- It just seems totally unfair that these tiny furry creatures can discombobulate our sophisticated technology. yes Rochelle, they wired it to the battery in the car. The dealer … Read more
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. In addition, the Automotive Technology program is working with the Automotive Service Councils of California to establish as early as next year a program like ASEP and ASSET, but with a focus on independent dealerships and repair shops. I really do think that somethings should be left to a mechanic, but it depends on what needs to be done to your car.

The day starts with a Skills Competition at 8:30 a.m. in the Automotive Technology Complex, also known as the K” Building. The Skills Competition has college and high school students using the latest tools to test their knowledge and expertise on everything from wheel and engine alignment to air conditioning repairs. It is very frustrating to have a tiny little mammal cause you to spend hundreds of dollars- not to mention the loss of your vehicle when it is being repaired. It seems like you have employed many ways to let them know they are not welcome. I wish you good luck, and hope they get the message.
I don’t imagine this car would do well in Alaskan winters, but this car was originally from Arizona.

This is Rotting In Style, not Abandoned In Style, and this car is rotting, though not as bad as others have of this year.

In a fiercely competitive market where cost, features, and flexibility must be balanced, Emerson helps you achieve productivity and functionality. Recently spent $5500 to replace rat damaged wiring harness on 2006 Prius. Soy based insulation on wiring harness. Insurance paid for repair. Two weeks later $500 more to replace more rat damage.

This series features automotive art and illustration beginning in the 1880s, in the very early days of motoring, through to the mid-1960s. Mainly in poster form, that either advertised motor cars and car-related products, or promoted motor-racing events like Grand Prix. Actually this is a P2302 not a P02302 just to get logistics correct. P2302 is a Coil #1 Insufficient Coil Ionization code. This is a very common code with Chrysler products. The poster didn’t leave a VIN or description of engine size or turbo or non-turbo. Either way these vehicles utilize a coil pack design. There is actually two coils so to speak in the one pack. Coil #1 fires cylinders #1 and #4 and Coil #2 fires cylinders #2 and #3. The PCM contains an algorithm that can infer monitored burn time of the secondary pattern to set this code.

Your CPU is crucial if you’re an engineering student. Whenever we run AutoCAD, it has to pile up its huge database and present us with a virtual workspace for our work. So, if your CPU speed is not adequate, you will have to wait for a long time for the software to just boot. Talk about the time for crafting your work alone. Sounds familiar? Don’t let that happen in your new laptop and make sure that you have a fast enough CPU.

Diagnosing an electrical short can be very difficult and expensive. The actual repair usually consists of an inexpensive wire connector and some tape. The real expense is the time it takes to locate the problem. I just bought one of these and was trying to figure out how to dress it up! Thank you for this article!! I´m a fan of your hubpage, it is very helpful for those us that have the pasion of car design. Hide your dog food, cat food, and birdseed. Dog food is the gold standard of rat society. Rats will stuff pounds and pounds of it into the air cleaner, glove compartment, or other empty spaces in your car.
A wonderfully colorful and helpful lens! I wish I’d had it to read before I took two pair of shoes to the thrift shop :+) Thank you so much!

And this time when I tried on the sandals again I loved the results!
