Here’s the deal guys, we started off as an automotive industry magazine that talks about anything remotely associated with cars. The subprime crisis, the oil spill off the Gulf of Mexico, the Great Tohoku Earthquake are all world issues affecting the automotive industry. We share a home at the McLaren Technology Centre with other McLaren Technology Group companies that helps us stimulate, nurture and develop innovative new ideas for our customers. This is definitely a job opportunity for someone. Thanks for passing on this information. Angel blessings.
The workshop floor is very very important. More so than in most businesses as it must withstand stains from dirty thin and hot oil. It happens that spills do occur when doing oil changes, but more about how to stop that happening later. My $99 break job turned into over $350 by the time I was done. I’m just grateful I’ve got a Toyota, and that’s the most expensive repair I’ve ever had to have done with it (besides new tires). Won’t ever go to Just Breaks again, however.
It seems that i have heard about more incidents with Hondas- Maybe you have discovered the reason. Maybe they should make them with moth … Read more

Not that I need another craft project, laugh but this is a great way to jazz up those old shoes. Nice lens with some terrific suggestions and thank you for including (those all important) directions. Love the punch/tape stencil; what a terrific idea. Congratulations on a well-deserved purple star!
That said, I will grant the two main suppositions, namely that innovation does not solve problems and is always disruptive. The second is far easier to demonstrate than the first, especially as advances in medicine in particular demonstrate the … Read more
With a view to providing IP managers with more guidance on how to deal with these pressing issues, a survey has recently been completed by Ian Hartwell of CIPPM Bournemouth, himself a former IP manager for Cambridge-based companies Xaar and Cambridge Display Technology and now a consulting European Patent Attorney with Maguire Boss. The study was supported by the Research Fund of the European Patent Office Well done, EPO: money well spent!. I highly recommend getting both the Jacquard Lumiere and Neopaque Exciter Packs I mentioned, which will give you a great choice of colors to accent your main shoe colors. In fact, if you are painting the body of the shoe in more than one color, you may not even need to buy any full-size bottles of the Lumiere and Neopaque paints, depending on how much each color you will be using in your design.
Since they are for the automotive industry, the majority of these companies sell colors in larger quantities like 2 or 4 ounces which is a lot simply for nail polish. They don’t sell samples, with the exception of Alsa with their sample deck The cost of the pigments/flakes is also higher for some of … Read more
Marvin’s son, Joey, will be handling all of his father’s former customers. Please wait a few moments while you get redirected to Joey’s business website. Thank you. With the first method, you can quickly check if your battery has enough juice for the starting system of your car to fire up your engine using a digital multimeter. This is a quick way to learn the state of your battery, specially on so called free maintenance batteries, which don’t have removable caps.
I suspect they would have similar effects on all rodents, but you might want to consult the labels or the manufacturer of specific products to see what they say. Some of them are based on the urine (or equivalent odor) of predator species like fox or coyote. One would assume that squirrels and chipmunks would be as alarmed about the proximity of these hunters as mice are. Other products base their ‘recipes’ on strong essential oils which apparently repel critters with sensitive noses.
I feel that BMW should make repairs for free and should replace the damaged wiring, which may not be possible. But, in any case I don’t feel that I should continue to pay the cost repairing … Read more
Spinale Automotive is conveniently located on 34 Bridge Street in Salem MA right across from Dunkin Donuts. Please stop buy for your Car Service Needs. We are open Mon-Friday 5am-5pm. Also, I don’t know how many time I’ve taken my car to a shop and receive an absurd quote to fix things I know were not broken. Once, i had a clutch cable that needed adjusting. One shop wanted to replace it and 2 -3 other things…over $1000 quote. Took it to another, he tightened the clutch cable (like I knew was all that was needed), and all was good. Took him under 20 min…more time spent just getting into the bay than to do the actual work.

This is how I roll. I’m not the most confident driver. Part of my love for the Shasta Compact is that 1) it was within the towing capacity of my small RV (the Toyota Rav4), and 2) its compactness makes towing a bit less intimidating. Soak up any standing puddles, just like with gasoline. The big difference is what happens afterward.

In 1981, Mark Carr was working as a graphic arts salesman for a photographic mural company. He had just moved to Houston from upstate New York and was finding success in his role, but he was restless. He felt like he was built to be doing something different. After many years of car ownership, and being huge car enthusiasts, we found an easier way to upgrade our cars. With a small amount of cash and to give our cars great curb appeal, we found that pinstriping was the way to go. There is an easy way to pin stripe your vehicle.
Had a 1997 volvo. Drove home and as I went to go in the house I noticed a little smoke coming from the hood, went and opened it to find debris on fire. Used a broom to knock it out. A few months later, my mother calls me on the phone. She’d been driving my car periodically since I was away at college. She drove to the grocery store and when she pulled into the parking space, she noticed smoke. She got out, went to open the hood and some guy stopped her. next thing you know, the whole … Read more
Testing Expo – Automotive – China is the place to discover new testing, development and validation technologies for components and complete vehicles. If you don’t have business cards, I recommend getting some so you can start building your relationships. If you just help a customer with one little question, and spend just 5 or 10 minutes with them, you will have a return customer asking for you by name.
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.

Dow brings technology-driven solutions from across the company to every major system of the vehicle. First, look on the walls inside, behind the counter or maybe even down a hall. Many shops will have certificates hanging there showing training courses that their mechanics and associates have been through. Right out of the gate I want to qualify the value of these as being only marginal, but, once again, like a clean shop, they serve as an indicator of pride in workmanship. A shop displaying these has 1) the willingness to send its people to training that they might improve their skills, and 2) the pride that comes with an educational accomplishment. Again, that doesn’t guarantee that the mechanics are the best, but it gives you another indication that at least this shop cares enough to try.
I have a 2014 Mazda 3. Today when I went to start it for work after I turned it on it smelled like rotten eggs REALLY bad. That was my first clue. Then I put it in reverse to get out of my garage and my car started sputtering and dying out. I was so mad, it’s literally an 8 month old car!!! So … Read more

I dug through my old sewing notions drawer and, luckily, found some narrow, white, flat elastic that was at least 10-15 years old but still seemed to have good stretch-and-recovery properties. I also found some elastic thread and promptly used it to sew a strip of flat … Read more
