Anyone who knows Lotus is aware that the British Automaker doesn’t make its cars fast by dropping a huge V-8 engine under the hood. Instead, the philosophy Lotus has prescribed to is adding lightness to a car to increase speed, not just pouring more horsepower and torque at the situation. The latest example of this idea in action is the new Lotus Exige Sport 350. By the time you have run out of space, you must have accumulated enough money to move to your new larger premises, and lease or buy more equipment for new profit centers. If your battery’s the unsealed type, you must add water to avoid drying up. Here’s how to put water in the battery: twist open the cap and top up with distilled water. This will give your battery a longer life.
The surface is always curved, so you need to press hard enough to flatten the curve or use a curved pressure plate. Take care that your pressure clamps are not widening the gap. And that newly topped up windshield washer tank ? Nearly empty, the contents having been sprayed through the hole all over the engine compartment.

The Tier 1 was facing stringent delivery timelines for the ECU and hence consulted KPIT for performing design optimization for their models that could reduce the execution time.
Hey, do you know anything about TCA Tokyo Communication Arts and where it falls within the spectrum? To be honest the only reason I want to go there is because I used to live in Tokyo and I want to go back. I live in New York now. I’m sure there are good schools here, but if I could get a good school … Read more
This is the time everybody is searching for a good Design school to attend next academic year. In Transportation Design , in some ways, it is easier to choose because there are less schools. At the same time all these schools are in competition with each others and offer similar programs, similar methods and similar contacts. This is one of the coolest lenses I have ever seen ! Thanks so much for sharing. That sounds simple enough. If you are currently selling 100 New and Used a month, then that pencils out to 600 Customer Pay Repair Orders per Month, not including Warranty and Internal. It’s the CP RO count we are after.

I started writing on HubPages because I had a few ideas and tricks of the trade I wanted to share with the world. I figured if I could just get this information in front of people, it just might help someone out. I witness so much dishonesty in the automotive business it made me sick, from mechanics up-selling unnecessary work, to service advisers using scare tactics to pressure customers into buying useless dealership recommended services. Anyway, I like this hub and will ‘park my car’ here for a while, hoping I won’t end up with a mice infestation as a result. If you have a Stihl weed wacker with low power, there’s a simple fix that will have your weed trimmer running like new again. With pocket sized oscilloscopes, there’s an even greater jump in price with additional features. That’s due to the cost of miniaturization.
With the engine running, touch the meter probes to the battery terminals—positive (red) meter probe to the battery positive terminal, and negative (black) meter probe to the battery negative terminal. The worst I’ve had is a chipmunk that kept getting into the driver’s compartment, chewing on paper, and sleeping on the seat.

Cars are an especially good example of how social factors can affect and amplify the effects of innovation. I discussed in a previous post on Cassandra’s Legacy how cars became the prime marker of social status in the West with the 1950s, becoming the bloated and inefficient objects we know today. They had a remarkable effect on society, creating the gigantic suburbs of today’s cities where life without a personal car is nearly impossible. I have been approached to establish three Mercedes Benz (Truck) repair facilities in Afghanistan for use by the indigenous military force (ANA). We have already constructed various other Wksps’ for the US and UK military but they’ve always installed their own equipment (GFE).
Computer technology has helped many 10 year old children with Earth and space science projects. They have been able to obtain computer photographs and organize these with text describing the theme of the presentation. The computer allows the children to present their reports in detail, possibly with good artistic composition and features. Printed presentations, done by the computer, are usually of excellent quality. As much as the computer technology has advanced, so too has printer technology. Children today often have access to sophisticated … Read more
We pride ourselves on being able to complete mechanical repairs on every vehicle. Streamline manual and automated inspection, maintenance and repair processes for large equipment with 3D measurement technology from FARO. Set up a prep area somewhere away from wind and dust. Expect there to be over-spray so if you’re doing this in the garage, make sure to get your car & bike out first!
Also, check for a loose wire—usually at a connector or load—or a wire with burned-out insulation causing a short circuit. When I started this, it proved to be much more challenging than I originally thought. There will be multiple parts to this trunk fiasco.
Some people park their car over a bucket of mothballs, which is apparently repugnant to rat olfactory receptors. You are right, Tom. The cats and dogs have to be of a certain disposition to be hunters. Disturbing the rodent habitat can certainly stir things up.

The first thing to do is relax. When your car breaks, don’t freak out. Don’t panic. I remember one woman coming into my shop and, as she began talking to me, I could hear trembling in her voice. I looked down at her hands and they were shaking too. She was terrified. I realized then and there how traumatic getting car repairs can be for people, to a degree I’d never imagined possible before. Now I realize not everyone is nervous or intimidated to that extent, but there is still anxiety for many somewhere underneath. So, take a breath and let’s have a look at what part of this unknown stuff is still under your control. Almost every shop uses a large standardized database, such as ‘AllData’, that provides labor times. The reason that shops need a standardized list is because all cars are not created equal. Removing a radiator on one car might be a snap, on another car it might take hours. The database provides a labor time that they feel should be a fair compromise for the customer and the mechanic. A skilled mechanic should usually be able to get the repair done in the amount of … Read more
Our team has developed a compact and powerful mechanical device for motorcycles, motorbikes, scooters, mopeds, mofa, pit bikes, dirt bikes and pocket bikes. The device, based on a belt-driven air compressor (supercharger), improves the performance of most common 50cc four-stroke single-cylinder engines. Having a bolt-on design, the supercharger kit increases an engine’s acceleration capabilities. Thus, a motorbike can reach its maximum speed in half the time required before the supercharger was installed. Long ago I drove a 1987 burgundy Cadillac Coup de Ville. One day as I came into town and entered an area where the speed limit dropped to 30, the car kept going at top speed and I ROARED through town. I’m amazed I didn’t kill someone. I don’t even remember how I got it stopped; I think I turned off the ignition and lost power steering and power brakes; anyway, it was a nightmare. Found out that a mouse made a nest under the hood and chewed through the throttle cables or something.

GM Certified Technician on site every day Monday to Friday and some Saturdays, call for appointment. Fumbling around on his browser, the IPKat hasn’t been able to track down the full research report, to which the Insight article offers no link. He hopes that it will be available soon, since he thought this to be one of the most refreshingly practical and valuable bits of contemporary empirical IP research that he has seen for a while.
What do you think about the Dell XPS 13? Although there are desirable upgrades to the CPU/GPU/Storage/RAM, the 13 seems like a good alternative to the 15 for significantly less. Hmm. I have seen this waveform many times but not a 2002 vehicle. This is where having a known good waveform library comes in handy. I know that I have a known good waveform from a 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 Liter in my library. Let’s pull it up.
So there you have it, my thoughts as they pertain to diagnostic fees. Keep in mind that there are certain issues that will sometimes require extensive diagnostics such as water leaks and electrical issues, but you should never authorize more than one hour for diagnostics. Should … Read more
