Do you remember that famous intro at the beginning of the american tv show “A-Team” ? “In 1972, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime that they didn’t commit” and then a bunch of cars start crashing into walls, jumping in the air and also water sliding. Vehicle explosions and crazy car stunts with flying axles were at their peak in this TV show from the 80’s.
The thing is that the A-Team car, a third generation GMC Vandura from 1983, was always in tip top shape despite of it being brutally driven and it became an iconic american car. As you would expect, the auto manufacturers from GMC had free car advertising for their GMC Vandura because of the A-Team van throughout the 80’s but they also donated a whole lot of them in order for us to see those out of this world car stunts and high speed car chases that lack any kind of car care behavior.
Hey there my auto enthusiast friend! A common question which appears under different forms, and that bothers a lot of the car owners out there about their car maintenance, is: When do I replace my car’s spark plugs, how often should I change the spark plugs on my vehicle or why do I have to change them?
When the spark plug ages, the gap which the spark has to travel in order to provide the perfect combustion, also widens and with that you also get some problems with your car.
The thing is that this isn’t brain surgery, it’s all about simple car care and if your car has over 60.000 miles on the odometer, then here are the main reasons why you should change your car’s spark plugs:
So, today’s auto world topic is about the things which car owners didn’t know they were doing wrong when driving or the usual mistakes that a new driver is bound to make and I am also going to talk about some do it yourself easy guides for a better care of cars.
Now, if you have the time, and you’re interested in this article, feel free to read it thoroughly ’cause you’ll be amazed to see that you’re not that car care kind of guy you thought you were in the first place!
Here are some mistakes which car owners don’t even know they are doing and a bunch of do it yourself car maintenance easy top tips:
- Don’t start the car and immediately drive away! It’s not healthy for the car engine and that’s because the engine’s oil pump has to do its job for at least 20 seconds before driving ( oil lubrication to the main engine components); When the RPM goes down, it’s a sign that the car is good to go
- How do I know on which side the fuel door cap is? Well, this is so easy if you’re inside the car, look at your dashboard’s fuel gauge and you’ll see a gas pump sign and guess what?! Right next to it, you’ll see a tiny arrow which shows you exactly where the fuel door is!
Hello there auto world! Everybody wants to be the proud car owner of an impressive SUV but not everybody has the financial possibilities or they’re too stingy to maintain, with proper car care, their freshly bought off road car even if it’s new or a second hand car. Try to ask yourself these questions:
Do I know the hidden costs which come with owning an off road car? Am I the kind of auto enthusiast who will invest a lot of money in his all wheel drive car or am I the frugal type?
All wheel drive vehicles are great in my opinion because you can pretty much go everywhere you want with them but when you buy a SUV it’s not like you’re choosing a cheap car that will run for ages without having to throw some money away.
Since I was a kid, even if I didn’t show too much affection for my parents, deep down inside I loved them and was fully aware of their struggle to raise me with a low income and “a lot of life’s problems on their plate”. That’s the time when I also decided, that when I would grow up, to do everything in my power to make them happy and treat them like they did with me!
It seems that others managed to get successful quicker than me, just like Christian Guzman, a pro fitness model who bought a Cadillac SRX for his father as a birthday present with tears of joy in his eyes! And oh my God what an amazing and oddly satisfying reaction he had after seeing his auto gift! I guess that car care will be taken to the extreme, now that the father has a car which he loves from his very own son!
These days, a lot of auto enthusiasts who sometimes don’t have a lot of money, tend to buy luxury cars like BMW or Mercedes and they forget about the high maintenance costs.

So, because you don’t have a lot of money and you’re a car care kind of guy, you must learn from this video tutorial, how to replace by your own, a BMW E90 daytime running light!

Today’s car care kind of song is like the other chill out car songs which don’t let you drive your car in that pedal to the metal driving style so you also keep its wheels and tires in good condition along with other car parts like the bushings and etc.
Flume’s Ezra song is that kind of driving music which, if you accidentally listen to it, you get an instant feeling that everything is peaceful and cool around you, nothing matters anymore, not even care of cars.
Today’s article is for those muscle car enthusiasts who loved the famous american TV show from the 80’s called “The Dukes of Hazzard”.
The Dukes of Hazzard really wasn’t an example of care of cars when it came to those crazy stunts and high jumps made with General Lee, a red Dodge Charger from 1969, and those who watched the series didn’t really think of the fact that a whole bunch of Dodge Chargers were destroyed, I mean the legend of muscle cars was tortured so hard that they didn’t have anymore 1969 models to use in the show and they started killing models from 1968 to 1971!
