To raise or not to raise your car

A vehicle or truck suspension can be raised through a progression of modifications or new parts, giving the vehicle more ground freedom. Having a higher ground clearance can help with rough terrain, simpler fix or inside access. The normal lawn repairman can bring a vehicle's suspension up in around three hours.

These spacers are fitted over the mounting plate which supports or holds the upper vehicle body and are generally a couple of millimeters over the mounting plate to raise the tallness of the vehicle. The issue with raising your vehicle is that normally, every vehicle is intended to run a specific reason. The suspension f... Read more

What Does a Bad Wheel Bearing Sound Like?

Wheel bearing noise can be tricky to diagnose since it can easily be mistaken for tire noise. Even when a noisy wheel bearing is the actual culprit, it can be difficult to narrow it down to which wheel is affected

The main purpose of wheel bearing is to allow the wheels to rotate with minimal friction. When a vehicle comes to a stop, the bearings start to cool off and then a vacuum is generated from the lubricant, air, and contacting metal.

The seals should hold the vacuum in place. If not, the sealed hub or the bearing will start pulling in air from the outside, which may include water and other contaminants. This can r... Read more

How Long Does an AC Compressor Belt Last?

For the air conditioning system in your car to work properly, it has to pressurize refrigerant. That is the function of the AC compressor. The compressor itself gets a signal from the AC relay, and is operated by a belt that is powered by your engine’s crankshaft – the AC compressor belt. In some cars, the AC compressor belt is separate, but in most modern cars, the serpentine belt runs the AC compressor along with all the other accessories in your car.

Belts of any kind have a limited life. Usually, you can expect your AC belt to last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. If the belt is exposed to contaminants, its life ... Read more

Does driving puddles cause car engine damage?

As the rain keeps falling, will driving through puddles damage your car engine and prove an expensive mistake?

Modern cars tend to have air intakes fairly low down at the front of the car. Drive through water deep enough and it will be sucked up into the engine, causing it to seize.

The technical term for this damage is called ‘hydrostatic lock’ – water enters an engine cylinder and during the compression stroke will lock the engine piston in place.

This in turn overloads the connection rod, causing it to deform and cause significant engine damage. It can even destroy the engine altogether.

How to Add Oil to Your Car

The oil dish holds up to 4 to 6 quarts relying upon the vehicle. At the point when the engine starts, oil pump sucks oil from the oil pan through the pickup cylinder, and then goes through the oil filter where any dirt and debris are removed.

It at that point flows all through the whole engine by means of spurt openings, finally heading back to the oil pan to start the cycle again.

You ought to dependably check your oil before including new oil. On the off chance th... Read more
