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
Knowing how to test a car battery with a multimeter for common battery issues may not seem important, but battery cell problems, corroded terminals, acid buildup, and battery case damage are among the main culprits behind starting and charging system problems. Use your digital multimeter for some simple tests to find out the working and physical condition of your battery, and then clean your battery to help prevent the most common battery issues. This article will be checking out a few of the best (in my opinion) portable digital oscilloscopes around today. Because most product literature will only outline the good news and not the bad, I’ll be reviewing each one with practical information on its uses and limitations. Hopefully by this you’ll get a good sense of where to invest your money. Let’s get going!
This is a celebration of 1920’s Automobiles, taken from actual advertisements of the era. The beautiful color illustrations in the Adverts are much more attractive to me than the color photo’s which eventually replaced them. Many of the color advertisements show the cars in actual settings of the period, helping to bring the 1920’s period back to life for modern readers by displaying cars … Read more
As an 80’s survivor I feel it’s my civic duty to the children of the world to raise awareness of the ugliness that was the 1980s. More to the point to I would like to highlight and bring to the surface what used to be considered fashionable and practical modes of transportation. I am a mechanic and I think the Flat Rate system for mechanics should be outlawed. I have worked with some guys that would always have the sparkplug you needed if the parts dept. didn’t have them. They only give you 8 for a V8 engine, ot 6 for a V6, they NEVER gave extras. So why did he have them, because HE DIDN’T INSTALL THE BACK ONES!!!
Overall, working in the automotive factory industry is ok. It can entail mandatory weekends with lots of overtime. All of the jobs are repetitious and cause some strain on you’re muscles and joints. Some people develop carpel tunnel in their wrists, and develop bad backs, to name a few related issues to the job. The pay is average for the average worker of anywhere from 15$ to $20 an hr. The benefits are really good and they have bonuses as … Read more

You can always change your mind, and even re-paint your shoes next season, next year, or whenever you wish. If you decide to change the color after you have already applied the clear top coat of Pledge floor finish, simply sand it off gently before you prep and re-paint over the old color.

In a fiercely competitive market where cost, features, and flexibility must be balanced, Emerson helps you achieve productivity and functionality. Here it is. Between the water intrusion and the dirt it wore one of the CAN wires and corroded it. I repaired this wire and a couple of others. I advised the shop to vacuum out both side sill plate areas. Unfortunately, this will happen again due to the rocker panel area being rotted. The fact that the customer likes to run this vehicle into mud up to the doors multiple times doesn’t help at all either.
Just spent 1200 to repair almost every wire in under my fusebox. Fuel pump was taken out by shorted wires. Live in mtn area and field mice are around. I placed the Tom Cat all-weather blocks on plastic ties in different areas of my cars engine and have already noticed nibbling on some of the blocks. May not be humane but repairs are costly and I’d rather the mice eat the bait rather than my engine wiring.
Absolutely, Mumz. Word of mouth carries more weight than anything else by far. Companies can’t buy advertising that good. The problem a lot of shops have … 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.
