The modern automotive industry is notoriously high stakes and competitive- traits that were amplified during the recent era of historic industry restructuring. Though many companies emerged from this turbulent period leaner, more efficient, and attuned to the realities of demand, much work remains to shore up key weaknesses. Amidst this backdrop, automotive companies continue to pour billions into developing products, building new factories, and researching new technologies – all for increasingly uncertain returns. These returns are even more unpredictable in the current global market with new entrants, new powertrain technologies, and fluctuations in oil prices. Vehicle Manufacturers (VMs) and suppliers can no longer rely on domestic demand, political backstops, or mature markets to deliver the required returns on investments. The capacitor is an added load on the alternator, thus stealing current away from your amplifiers and recharging itself. I was working for a personal computer retailer in the early 80s when the first Mac was released. I was sold! Ownership makes that repairing costs are private, so it lower the costs for good drivers and encorage good driving. Shared costs promotes less carefull and soft driving that reduce mechanical fatigue in the car.

Did you know they have portable digital oscilloscopes that fit into the palm of your hand nowadays? I’d love to go back in time and show the users of the original oscilloscopes what we have to work with these days: they’d be amazed. However, not all handheld digital oscilloscopes are made equal, and they may not have the features you need. This may sound like a ridiculous question but can can you strategically place the dryer sheets under the hood so you can drive the car with the dryer sheets under the hood? And replace them once a week?.or are all these methods for when you are storing a car.
Thank you for this posting. I have a very talented student that is drawing car designs already in 8th grade as well as some designers. However, I am especially thankful for your comments on professionalism, attitude and working together. This is something he struggles with (a lot of attitude).
To use a current clamp, you simply clamp over a single cable. In the case of a power cord or multicore cable, you need to isolate one of the cores. If two cores carrying the same current but in opposite directions … Read more
A do-it-yourself battery replacement is a real money-saver but you also have to be responsible with the proper disposal of your old battery. Great information & you’re right about most real estate agents they are so persistent – they live for their commissions. I was married for a short-time that had a gift from God for fixing cars yet chose a different line of work but did side jobs for friends that paid him a bit of extra cash now and then. Today with the U.S. economy at what it is with no positive seen in the near future many will appreciate this write – Great Hub!
But Honda said it would recall vehicles in other areas that also have high humidity because it wanted to make sure owners would not be endangered. In addition to the states recommended by Takata, Honda had said it would recall vehicles originally sold or registered in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas.
One time while I was doing the laundry the washing machine’s spinner would not even budge so I ended up hand washing the clothes! As it turned out, a mice happened to be inside the machine and it was … Read more
You agree to get information about new jobs for this search by email. You can cancel email alerts at any time. Owon is a well-known name in the oscilloscope and waveform generator industry. They have a ton of quality products, but I want to highlight this one in particular because it hits the ‘sweet spot’ of features, price tag and portable size, making it a prime candidate for many applications.
However, the section which caught my attention dealt with the dent resistance of recently developed composites compared to the current standard steel. Specifically, steel was compared to six different types of composites which are either in production or under consideration to be placed in production by the automotive industry. Below is a graph which is in L.T. Harper’s paper, which shows each material and its dent threshold (the amount of displacement needed in order to create a visible dent).
On the top of his shelf is a little wooden train that spells his name. I bought the magnetic train letters at a craft fair. He has his great grandpa’s name and it’s very unique, so we never find it in stores on key chains and cups, so its fun for … Read more
