ENGINE - CHECK YOUR BELTS

CHECK YOUR BELTS

At the front of your engine there will be a series of rubber drive belts that loop around various pulleys, driving everything from the alternator to the a/c compressor. Rubber perishes, more so in extreme conditions like those found in an operating engine bay. Get your timing belt and accessory drive belt checked every 25,000 miles, preferably replacing it every 50,000 miles

2017 Infiniti Q30

2017 Infiniti Q30 First Drive

Audi and BMW have owned the premium C-segment for almost a decade now thanks to the A3 and the 1 Series (and 2 Series). Benz's A-Class has become less of a retiree's option and has spawned a popular (if not particularly good) sedan (the CLA) and a crossover (GLA). Down in the lower-class decks, machinery from Subaru is punching well above its weight, while Volkswagen's Golf owns the market in Europe.

This all left perennial premium pretenders like Lexus and Infiniti with a problem: how to convince buyers their C-segment machinery was genuinely premium if they were based off a volume-sellin... Read more

Lexus LC 500

Lexus LC 500 coming  2016

 

Believe it or not, it's been nearly four years since we first saw the Lexus LF-LC Concept. Its swoopy style and spindle grille kicked off a big design revolution for Lexus, and we saw a number of LF-LC design elements work their way onto production cars. But now, rumor has it a full-on production version will see the light of day, and soon.

Motoring.com.au says the LC 500 coupe will show its face at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show in January, and we have little reason to doubt this. In fact, it's kind of been a long time coming. The LC was reportedly approved for production in 2... Read more

Porsche turns up boost on 911

Porsche turns up boost on 911 range with new Turbo and Turbo S

 


You didn't honestly think Porsche would stop with just a turbocharged Carrera and Carrera S, did you? No, that'd be silly. Of course Stuttgart had to follow up those two smash hits with a new Turbo and Turbo S. Naturally, both cars build on the 370-horsepower Carrera and 420-horsepower C2S.

The base Turbo offers 540 horsepower and starts at $160,195, while the Turbo S packs 580 horsepower and demands an extra $28,900. Adding a folding fabric top to either model will drive the cost of entry up by $12,300, regardless of o... Read more

AC COMPRESSOR PROBLEMS, PRICE AND BRANDS

AC COMPRESSOR PROBLEMS, PRICE AND BRANDS

AC Compressor troubleshooting
The air conditioning compressor is one of those parts of the car that are typically used for long hours and typically gets a lot of usage. It has been seen that AC compressors are generally reliable and don't fail easily. 
If it does, it is often because of some other reasons. The point is, never replace a compressor in a hurry without detecting the full problem. Otherwise it is quite likely that the new one will also fail.

To whom it may concern.

Hope this meets you well?

My name is Didi Awosika. I work with Viacom International Media Networks Africa, as Senior Commercial Manager for West Africa.

Yesterday (23/10/15) at about 12:45pm, I was driving my Black Porsche Carrera 4s on 3rd Mainland Bridge at high speed, headed towards Oworonsoki, when suddenly the right rear Tyre burst, putting the car in an uncontrollable position, which left me in shock.

Luckily I was able to regain control of the car and managed to nurse the car to the end of... Read more

Getting quality replacement for broken car parts could be a hassle in Nigeria.

Everyone out there, that is not you, is trying to rip you off.

CarPartsNigeria promises to have your back in this industry where to trust is at your own risk. The... Read more
