Car Tips

Since almost all automobile engines depend on internal combustion, the engine heat is a big problem. The many explosions taking place inside the combustion engine cylinders when the engines are running give off a lot of heat. If the heat that is given off is not controlled, it can cause damages to the engine itself. A good driver understands that it is crucial to check the engine temperature all times.

Maintain a fine engine cooling system

The only way to ensure that your engine runs smoothly is maintaining a fine engine cooling system. The vehicles cooling system is always anchored by a radiator, that is charged with the task of bearing warmed coolant fluids to dissipate heat back to the external environment. Remember that a liquid coolant is usually a mixture of chemicals called antifreeze and water.

Strategic location

Engine cooling systems are often located near the vehicle front, behind the grille. This position enables adequate flow of air in and within the cooling system. This then allows for efficient heat transfer. In case your engine cooling mechanism seems faulty, you can try the Vista-Pro radiators.

Constant temperatures

When the car is running, there is the creation of friction between various engine parts and such friction generates huge amounts of heat. Such enormous levels of heat can lead to damages in the cars engine. Therefore, it is crucial that this heat is controlled so as to maintain a steady temperature in the cars engine. That is why Vista-Pro is needed: to cool the car engine down.

Cooling effect

A car radiator comes with a coolant fluid, side tanks, tubes and aluminum fins. The whole radiator system has a role of taking the heat away from the coolant fluid, transferring it to the air and then the fan blows it away to bring a cooling effect.

Here are some things that may lead to faulty power window motors:

• Misaligned window

• Damaged window regulator

• Weakened balance springs

• Compromised or worn weather-stripping

• Misplaced window stops

• Ground wiring fault

• Obstructions in the doors or windows

Power vehicle window motors should be replaced as soon as the defect is detected so as to take care of the entire power window. Although some people may decide to fix the problem the DIY way, it is advisable to hire a person who is skilled and experienced in this job.

Recently I was imagining what cars would be like 25 years from now. My son will be around the same age as I am now, so he will be growing up in this transition. Today we already have vehicles parking themselves and in 2 1/2 more decades it will most likely be old news.

This scares the b-jesus out of some people, but if you’re like us, we can’t wait to see the new innovations reach the automotive market. Here is what you can expect when it comes to the future of driving:

Exterior Air Bags

Exterior Air Bags

In order to reduce the damage to vehicles and enhance a driver and/or rider’s safety, exterior air bags will be found on most vehicles in the future. When you think about it, exterior air bags sounds like it will feel like bumper cars if you get in an accident. How long before you see the majority of cars with external airbags? Give it about 5 to 10 years.

Long Range Headlights

Long Range Headlights

Often times we are driving down a dark two-lane road, and even if with our brights on; there isn’t enough lighting. Sure you might be able to see a vehicle coming, but other issues could surface. For instance, if you live out in the country and have tons of deer roaming the roads, it’s easy for one of them to dart across the street right in front of you.

Whatever the reasoning; there is advanced technology working towards a longer beaming light. The ones we have found revolve around laser headlights or high beams. It’s another innovation you can expect to see in the next decade or so.

Google Cars

Google Cars

If you’re an avid Internet user, you probably already know how your web browser collects data about you. It figures out what you commonly research, and then when you visit pages, it provides ads based on your searches. Even though vehicles won’t actually be “Google” vehicles, we will see futuristic vehicles with the ability to collect data from you. (more…)
