When to Get Oil Change

Trust Your Monitor

Recently, manufacturers have been installing oil life monitors, which are based on mileage and alert the driver via a maintenance light when the vehicle reaches that predetermined mileage range. In more advanced versions, the monitors are continuously tracking information via sensors located throughout the car and then utilize an algorithm to predict your oil life. Depending on your driving conditions and behaviors, the frequency of your car’s lubricant can vary daily. All guesswork is eliminated about when your next tune up is and you are free to just drive until the maintenance light alerts you. It is important to remember that these systems are created to work with the factory-recommended brands. As high-tech as they may seem, they are not advanced enough to distinguish if you choose to upgrade to a higher brand. So, it actually pays to save your money and rely on the factory fill.

Pajero Sport Automatic

Pajero Sport is not a new car. It was earlier available as a vehicle with manual transmission. However, things changed last November, when the company decided to launch a new version of the vehicle. It’s needless to say that the new version, instead of having manual transmission, came equipped with automatic transmission. The name Pajero Sport Automatic was derived from this newly added feature of the vehicle.

A large share of the people who were in love with Pajero Sport decided to replace their old vehicle with the automatic version of this Mitsubishi creation. As a result, within a jiffy, authorized dealers of the company saw all the pieces of the newly launched car disappearing from their showrooms.

The automatic transmission is not the only feature that separates Pajero Sport from the Pajero Sport Automatic. The new car comes with a range of other modifications. Particularly, its exterior is significantly different from that of its predecessor. However, that doesn’t mean that Mitsubishi has kept its interior intact.

The Japanese automaker, known widely for its innovations, has included all the features it added to the limited edition Pajero model some time back into the Pajero Sport

Radiator

Check the exterior of the radiator for leaks and corrosion, damaged tubes and clogged fins. Also, inspect head gasket regularly. You can identify blown out head gasket with signs of oily deposits inside the fill neck of radiator.

Radiator pressure cap test

The radiator caps are a critical part of the cooling system and are prone to fatigue and wear, and this may lead to loss of pressure control. Therefore, check the radiator pressure cap for the recommended system pressure level at regular intervals.

Check thermostat if it is properly opening and closing

The thermostat controls the amount of coolant being released into the engine. It should open and allow coolant to pass once the engine is adequately heated. Sometimes thermostats can wear and they remain closed. A thermostat that is stuck in the closed position will result in poor circulation of coolant and this leads to overheating of the engine. It is important that the thermostat opens and closes to regulate the engine coolant temperature.

Deploying Strobe Lights

Stroboscopic Light –

The energy the flash of these lights comprises is between 10 and 150 joules, depending upon the application and purpose, they are being used for. 150 joules is a considerable amount of energy that is sufficient for disorienting an individual, at a crime scene. The very first version of strobes was typically an aide in the practice of photography, but with the changes and advancements in their production method, these lights now stand as a help during police operations.

In the recent past, popularity of these lighting systems had been very high because of their performance and their price. The below subsections of the article discuss some of those benefits, keeping in view the purposes of police and first responders.

Disorienting of a suspect –

Strobes blast a very high intensity flash of light, which creates a temporary visual effect on the mind of the suspect, through his/her eyes. This visual effect affects the suspect in a way that his/her mind becomes unable to adjust and react very quickly. This temporary disability varies with the intensity, frequency and duration of light. The frequency could be adjusted as per requirements. That is

Car Door Actuator

Location of the Device

The device is located on the door of your car-below the latch. In some modern cars, you can find it integrated into your car system thus you can’t easily locate it.

The device receives voltage from the control switch. When it receives the voltage the door latch is activated and electromagnetism is generated. If your actuator has an electrical motor design, there is a gear set which unlocks and locks the doors of your car.

How To Install The Actuator

If your car doesn’t have the actuator you should consider installing it. You should start by prying the power lock switch and the power window switch from the door panel. You should then unplug the door switch before you put the switch aside.

While removing the door panel from the door, you should lift the panel upwards in order to clear the top of the door. You should then reconnect the window switch and close the window. After closing the window you should remove the switch.

You should unplug the pigtail from the base of the power lock and unbolt the actuator from the door using the socket

Types of Brake Pads

In the past, the most popular brake pad is the organic brake pad, which is made from asbestos. Asbestos is effective in absorbing and dissipating heat from friction. However, when it breaks down, a lot of brake dust will show up, which is harmful to people’s health. Thus, asbestos is gradually abandoned by most of the manufacturers. Instead, the manufacturers have created the nonasbestos organic brake pad, which is made from natural materials like rubber, glass, and resins. The main advantage of this kind of pad is that it’s environmental-friendly and is easier to be disposed of. Nevertheless, the disappointing fact is that since it is much softer, it wears faster, creating even more dust than the ones made from asbestos. Besides, although nonasbestos organic ones work well in normal street driving, once exposed to high temperatures or heavy load, they lose their high efficiency in stopping the car. Thus, they are only suitable for small cars that don’t do much aggressive driving, with limited hard stops and the light weight of the car being the necessities as well.

A metallic brake pad is another option for your car. Made from iron, copper, steel and graphite, metallic

About Kids and Auto Safety

It has also been found that children learn auto safety habits from their parents. Nearly 40% of children that are riding in a vehicle where their parents didn’t bother to put on their seatbelts also did not have their seat belts on. Simply teaching your children to never get in a car without putting on their seat belt can be life saving.

Another big issue with child safety in automobiles is incorrectly used car seats, booster seats and seat belts. When using a car or booster seat, it is critical to read the instruction manual. The manual will give parents the details for proper installation of the seat into the vehicle and its proper use, not to mention the appropriate ages and heights that the seats are used for. It is estimated that over 45% of typical child restraint devices are used incorrectly by parents, thus reducing their effectiveness and even putting the child in harm’s way.

The fact is, proper usage of child restraint devices such as booster seats, car seats and seat belts is the #1 way to protect your child from fatal and serious injuries while you are driving. Proper use of a

Right Fuel for Vehicle

Octane number is very crucial
The octane number is crucial for the optimum performance of the engine. The regular grade gasoline recommended for most vehicles has an octane number 87. High performance cars need premium grade gasoline or octane fuel with a rating of 89, 91 or 93. Many people think using premium grade gasoline gives better mileage and the vehicle moves faster. Fuel with a higher octane number helps the engine only if it is suggested by the manufacturer.

If the octane number is too high, it can adversely affect the fuel efficiency of the vehicle. The engine in a car designed to use 87 octane produces less power burning 91 or 93 octane. This makes the engine consume more fuel to perform at the same level.

Avoid using low grade or super fuels
Low grade fuel contains impurities and is not good for the engine in the long run. These impurities result in clogged filters and fuel lines. This, in turn, results in low fuel economy and poor performance of the vehicle.

Super fuels are not recommended unless suggested by the manufacturer. They contain additives that may clean the injectors, but can spoil

LED Strips

DOs: The LED strips are flexible so they can be bent accordingly, within its limits of course. The strips can be bent no less than 90 degrees; you don’t want to snap them in half and break the circuits now. They’re great to trace as a border around your headlights because of the smooth and curved surface. You would have to know the limits of these LED strips so you don’t somehow bend them awkwardly or anything. When you bend the strip, the radius must be more than 20 degrees before you risk damaging them. As a car enthusiast, that’s probably the last thing you want to do.

DON’Ts: The LED strips may be flexible, but that doesn’t mean that they can be abused either. Don’t bend the LED at an extremely sharp angle or bend them horizontally, as these should be a given. While it may not be like the world is going to end if you somehow snapped your LED light strip, it’s still somewhat of a hassle to replace so it’s better not to test the strip’s limits. These harsh actions may damage your new strip’s circuit board and will result in the whole
