Throwback Thursday: Mini Cooper

The Mini is a small economy car produced by the English based British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered an icon of 1960s British popular culture. Its space-saving transverse engine front-wheel drive layout – allowing 80 percent of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage – influenced a generation of car makers. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T, and ahead of the Citroën DS and Volkswagen Beetle. 

This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC b... Read more

How Do Batteries Die?

When the active material in the plates can no longer sustain a discharge current, a battery "dies". Normally a car (or starting) battery "ages" as the active positive plate material sheds (or flakes off) due to the normal expansion and contraction that occurs during the discharge and charge cycles. This causes a loss of plate capacity and a brown sediment, called sludge or "mud," that builds up in the bottom of the case and can short the plates of a cell out. This will kill the battery as soon as the short occurs. In hot climates, additional causes of failure are positive grid growth, positive grid metal corrosion, negative grid shrinka... Read more

How to Check Radiator Fluid Level

Your car's radiator is the heart of its cooling system, which also includes a fan, water pump, thermostat, hoses, belts, and sensors. It directs coolant around cylinder heads and valves to absorb their heat, return it to the radiator, and dissipate it safely. Because of this, you need to maintain an adequate radiator fluid level, which means you need to check the coolant level and add to it when necessary.

1. Park the car on a level surface. Ideally, you should do so after driving the car a short distance. You want to check the antifreeze or coolant level while the engine is cool or lukewarm, not hot or cold. If you have driven ... Read more
