Repairing Car Heater

When it comes to car heater and radiator problems, the most common one is low engine coolant level. You should always check it before you go on a long journey. Also, if you’ve got an older car you could have faulty engine thermostat and that should be changed at car repair shop.

When you enter the car you should check the temperature gauge and make sure it’s in the normal range. You could also check the temperature yourself by using a metal case thermometer placed into the filler of the radiator when the engine is cold.

If temperature and fluid level are good and you still have heater problems then it might come from poor circulation through the heater core. Test that by keeping your engine running at good temperature and try to feel the heater hoses. Both hoses should have the same temperature. If their temperature is different you should try flushing them or replacing them.

When you’re working around the car heater always use caution because it could be very hot and never try to work at it while the engine is hot. You should also use some gloves to protect your hands from being burned.

Hydrogen Car Conversion

You won’t actually be storing any hydrogen in your vehicle anywhere, which is a good thing. Hydrogen is very explosive and dangerous. Instead you will be creating hydrogen on demand by creating a simple conversion system that anyone can do in under a couple of hours. A skilled mechanic can do it easily in under an hour.

The way this works is by drawing a small current from your vehicle’s electrical system. This is then fed into a reservoir that will contain a mixture of water and a tad bit of baking soda (sometimes a little bit of washer fluid too if it’s cold). Using the electrical current, the water molecules are separated into HHO gas, or Brown’s Gas. This is a very stable, clean burning type of gas compound.

This compound is then directed to your vehicles combustion system resulting in an extremely efficient combination of air / fuel / and HHO gas. This combination burns much cleaner and much more effectively than your ordinary mixture. The result is a dramatic increase in your MPG.

Will it harm your vehicle? Not at all. The mixture actually burns cooler and cleaner, so it will actually extend the life of your vehicle. Will it void your warranty? No again. The hydrogen car conversion is 100% reversible. Any process that is reversible cannot void your warranty. How much water does it require? Not much at all. Just a small 16oz fill of water will last several weeks.

If it runs out, the system will not be interrupted, but be sure to keep it full to experience your desired MPG gains! Won’t it cost a lot of money? Nope. You can perform the conversion for under $100, an investment that will pay for itself time and time again. Imagine buying gas half as much. How quick will that add up for you?

A hydrogen car conversion is surprisingly simple to do, and extremely effective. Your car will be a gas saving machine, not to mention it will be much better for the environment by reducing the harmful emissions put off by normal fuel systems. One of the best things… You can actually claim this as a tax write-off as an alternative energy vehicle!!

Windshield Wiper

Wiping the edge of the blade with soft cloth is also helpful in case the blades are dirty. The other option is to replace the wiper blades that are a complete assembly consisting of metal frame and refills. Although this is slightly expensive, it can be done quickly and increases the windshield wipers’ efficiency and stops damage to the wiper. The windshield washer fluid reservoir has to be inspected and refilled when it is low. Windshield washer fluid is easily available in automotive parts stores.

In case the wipers move slowly or stop moving in extreme cold, the wiper motor must be checked. Removing the motor and adding grease and a drop or two of oil lubricates the motor and allows it to function at a normal speed.

The windshield wiper arm is the mechanical component that connects the windshield wiper blades to the windshield wiper motor that provides the movement. Without the windshield wiper arm, the entire windshield wiper system is of no use. In case the windshield wiper arm gets damaged, the only option is to replace the arm of the wiper with a new one. In case the wipers are frozen and stuck to the windshield or packed with snow, it’s important to free them before trying to use them. The windshield wiper system should be serviced periodically to ensure uninterrupted functioning.

Repair Made Simple

How does one go about headlight repair for their car? First off and the easiest of the repairs is to restore cloudy headlights. 90% of cars have some degree of cloudiness and damage to the lenses which will diminish light output. This can easily be fixed with a headlight repair kit. The headlight repair kit has been proven so effective that it is backed by numerous government agencies and it even earned a federal patent. It is a very economical alternative to replacing the headlights which can cost as much as $300 each. “Clean the headlights or have them professionally restored and repaired (our department uses headlight repair on all our police cruisers and department vehicles. Dirty headlights will decrease visibility by as much as 90%,” New York Police Traffic Division’s Traffic Safety Team. Headlight repair works to restore your cloudy headlights to new again and will increase your safety at the same time.

A second important item is to have your headlights properly aimed. Headlights that are improperly aimed can throw off depth perception, make it harder to see, and increase night time glare. Glare from oncoming cars is also a big factor in night time crashes. Even if your lenses are only slightly off the mark it can still greatly reduce your ability to see and greatly increase night time glare. A quick inspection can reveal whether your lenses are correctly aimed or not. For a small fee they can quickly calibrate and correct your lenses. Proper aiming and calibration of your headlights is an essential part of headlight repair.

Brighter bulbs should be made standard on all cars and an essential part of headlight repair. After removing the cloudiness and correctly aiming your lenses, you should look into some of the brighter replacement bulbs that have greater illumination fields and have higher light output. With recent advances, xeon bulbs and similar are not very expensive and can greatly increase your field of vision and your safety at night. They normally start at around $5-$10 a piece and will increase your light brightness by as much as 35% or more. Brighter bulbs add a nice finishing touch to a proper headlight repair. It not only looks better but will be that much safer.
