When you get sick, you usually experience some fairly common symptoms – sore throat, fever, and headache; and you can usually tell if it’s getting worse – you can feel it coming on. When your car gets ‘sick’ – when it requires service – you can usually tell as well. Your car may emit a strange smell or warning lights may appear on the dashboard.
If a dipstick breaks off this could be the reason behind the warning signals on the dashboard. This is easily remedied. The scrap O2 sensor recycling or faulty airflow system in some cars are the reasons a check engine light may blink on. It is extremely difficult to gauge if a person is not in fact, a mechanic.
When it comes to the car itself, you’re going to have some sort of idea about what you want. Make a list of the most important things (i.e. specific make or model, low mileage, service history etc). Work out which is the most important, would you be willing to sacrifice the perfect colour for having a lower mileage? This should stop your heart ruling your bank balance.
In cars with manual transmission you have to change gears by pressing down the clutch with your foot and moving a lever. Cars with automatic transmission change gears without control by the driver. Lower gears give the car more torque and speed. When the car moves faster the transmission shifts to higher gears.
So the term cat-back refers to all parts of the exhaust system between the outlet of the catalytic converter recycling converter or cat and the outside air. This usually means a series of pipes, one or more mufflers, and perhaps exhaust tips.
The ads GM is running, including those they ran during the Summer Olympics, reflect those necessary changes. Another aspect of those ads, that very few people are aware of, is the Cobalt gets better EPA fuel mileage ratings than the Aveo. The Cobalt is a larger car, weighs more and has a bigger engine. The engine is the same basic design as the Aveo. Why does it get higher MPG? Because the profit margin is higher!
I am sure there will be copycats of CarMD in the near future, but they have set the bar. The only thing that would be better is if you could use it on older cars too. I do not know why you can’t, most 80’s cars have computers, and I had them plug in my ’86 Camaro at AutoZone.
