ThrowBack Thursday: Buick Roadmaster 1938–1939

The Roadmaster is an automobile that was built by Buick from 1936 to 1958, and again from 1991 to 1996. Roadmasters produced between 1936 and 1958 were built on Buick's longest non-limousine wheelbase and shared their basic structure with entry-level Cadillac and, after 1940, senior Oldsmobiles.
Styling changes for 1938 were modest, with a longer hood extending to a now nearly vertical grill, taller bumper guards and redesigned hubcaps, but the effect was striking. Important changes were made to both engine and chassis. The ride was improved by replacing the rear leaf springs with coil springs, supported by double-acting shock abso... Read more

Synthetic Oil Vs Conventional Oil

Synthetic oil is not only refined but also distilled, purified and broken down into its basic molecules. This process not only removes more impurities from the crude oil but also enables individual molecules in the oil to be tailored to the demands of modern engines.

The next time you walk in to your local shop to get your oil changed and the service attendant asks you synthetic or regular? You just might have to think twice before you answer, for the sake of your wallet, and yes, the environment too!

First off, synthetic oil is better than conventional oil when it comes to its form and function. Conventional oil could n... Read more

How Long Does an AC Compressor Last?

As long as your car is running the way it should, you probably don’t even think about all the parts that are working under the hood. Your air conditioning (AC) compressor is one such part that is used every day, and you probably don’t even consider it until your air conditioning stops working. As with many accessories in your car, it is difficult to say with any accuracy how long the AC compressor will last. It depends on the age of your car, and how often you use your AC. As your car ages, and as the AC compressor sustains a lot of use, parts will inevitably begin to malfunction. Then, you end up with little cool air (or ev... Read more

How to Prevent Brake Fade

Brake fade is a very dangerous condition in which your brake pedal feels like it is working, but your car does not stop. In some case, it can happen even if your vehicle's brakes are new and the entire braking system is in good working condition.

What Causes Brake Fade?

Friction Fade
This is the most common and main cause of brake fade. Friction fade often occurs when the driver presses lightly on the brakes (just enough to slow the vehicle) with letting go while driving down a very long hill.
To prevent brake fade you should press on the brake pedal firmly, then let off to give them a cool down period. To furt... Read more

Throwback Thursday: 1973 Volkswagen SP2

The SP2 was born in the late 1960s in Volkswagen’s Brazilian arm. With the end of the original Karmann Ghia, VW Brazil was left without a sports model, and government rules all but barred imports. The new German manager of the unit, Rudoph Leiding, set out to design one himself, using the VW Type 3 chassis as a base. What flowed from his sketches was a two-seat hatchback that combined several trends in styling for the era – from the long hood to side gills on the rear pillars and low-slug lights – while looking unlike anything Volkswagen had built before.

The resulting “Project X” two-seater was fir... Read more

How To Diagnose Shock & Strut Problems In A Car.

Your car's suspension system is an intricate network of cooperating (usually, anyway) components designed to give you a smooth, even, stable ride. Since the suspension is ground zero when it comes to road abuse, the parts wear out, and even break. If your car doesn't seem to ride like it used to, you may have a problem down below.

Wheels seem to wander and wiggle rapidly back and forth.

Low or uneven tire pressure - check tire inflation.
One or more wheels out of balance - have wheels balanced.
Uneven or excessive tire wear - inspect tires and replace in pairs.

Are some tires safer than others?

A lot of thought has gone into the latest automotive safety technology. Many people today wouldn't think of driving a car without things like electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, and airbags.
Yet, one of the most important safety features on a car is something most people don't even consider a safety feature: the tires.

There are lots of different tires on the market today. You can get everything from racing slicks to mud and snow tires -- not to mention the all-season tires most new cars come with. When it comes to tire safety the safest tires are the ones that are well-matched to your vehicle and those that are... Read more
