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!
Since this is a car care blog, care of cars is our main priority! Today’s article is for teenagers who buy their first car or even for adults who really don’t know how to take care of cars.
If you buy for yourself a second hand car, you must know that every single thing that the seller is telling you about it, is usually a lie and that’s why, for car safety and other reasons, you should know how to change the car’s fluids! It’s an easy task which makes your car feel young again!
And some of the auto enthusiasts just want to learn the basic actions which you need to know when you’re working on a car;
So, you’ve turned 18 and as all men do (and women of course), you want your own damn car!
Being a car owner is much more better than having to be driven around town by your parents and since you’ve managed to buy yourself a car after getting that low paid job, or if you received a car as a gift, you must start searching for that care of cars instinct of yours! Why? Well because the way in which you take care of it, will reflect the person that you really are and remember: “a happy car makes you feel good while driving it” 😀
There are lots of car care procedures in this auto world but you must know the basics when it comes to auto detailing, car maintenance and other car related stuff;
Showing your car care for that “special one on wheels” can be confusing for a teenager but here are some simple top tips that will help you make sense about care of cars:
Everybody knows Ron Burgundy, the famous Anchorman from San Diego that bags every classy lady which he meets and likes! The guy is the alpha male in every context but he’s also a dumbass with a lot of charm and that’s why Will Ferrell signed a publicity contract with Dodge!
Ron Burgundy uses his funny way of being to alter people’s minds into thinking that Dodge’s new car model, the Dodge Durango, a pretty cool SUV that shares a lot of car parts and even assembly line with the Jeep Grand Cherokee, is the best deal when you want a lot of “sax”, relaxing night driving, and hilarious way of thinking everything that comes to mind 😀
There are so many true car care kind of guys around here and lots of them are very dedicated to improving and detailing their personal cars in a manner that even a cheap car can turn heads around when it passes down the street.
This is true care of cars and being in love with the auto world is quite expensive but I dunno’, it feels rather satisfying and I understand anyone who continuously spends his or her money on auto parts with huge price tags!
And in most of the cases, they end up building and improving their cars in a way that they’re like jewels; Now, the question is how do they show off their tuned up toys? Well, they organize small meetings, especially at airstrips (to show off their horsepower and top speed if you know what I mean), places where no cop will bother them and where they can share car tuning secrets or top tips to make their cars perform and look better! Places like.. the SHIFT S3CTOR Airstrip Attack V that was on April 19th 2014!
Who wouldn’t like a Range Rover Evoque? That’s the first thing which popped into head when the design engineers from Jiangling Motors Corp. started thinking of another copycat car project :D.
Yeah, the chinese auto manufacturers don’t know anything else but to duplicate famous car brands and change small details like the car emblem, parts of the car interior or exterior; Some people are cool with that, especially if the result is a cheap car which looks like a Range Rover Evoque!
This Land Rover rip off has a lot of stolen elements from the original Evoque; Even the writing font is just like the one on the british car.
