Here are the some key installation and service tips to make your next timing belt job just a little easier.
Understanding fuel pressure and volume is more complicated thanks to fuel injection.
All ignition coils transform a low-voltage/high-current power in the primary to high-voltage/low-current energy in the secondary.
In the shop, it is essential to understand what is different on stop/start vehicles and how it might change your diagnostic approach.
Servicing the serpentine belt on some vehicles is a tough task. Without the right tools it is almost impossible. Here are six tools to make your next belt replacement more productive.
All too often, technicians assume fuel pressure is “good” without actually measuring it. If the engine runs, they assume the injectors are getting adequate fuel pressure. If the engine cranks but won’t start, and they depress the service valve on the fuel rail and some fuel squirts out, then they assume the injectors have pressure.
Air filters are normal wear items that require regular checks and replacement. Their role is to trap dirt particles that can cause damage to engine cylinders, walls, pistons and piston rings. In fuel-injected vehicles, the air filter also plays a role in keeping contaminants off the airflow sensor.
New data from Navigant Research shows stop-start capability anticipated to be the most important innovation in improving fuel efficiency.
If one or more TPMS sensors have been replaced on most Mitsubishi vehicles, the new ID information has to be input directly into the system.
Auto manufacturers, in general, are continuing to reduce vehicle maintenance requirements by extending oil change intervals. But extended oil change intervals are a mixed blessing. On the upside, extended oil change intervals are conserving precious oil and reducing carbon emissions. On the downside, many vehicle owners are forgetting to check their engine’s oil level between
This new publication, from the Natural Resources Defense Council, the UAW and the Center for American Progress, demonstrates that a new fleet of fuel-efficient vehicles would allow drivers to enhance energy security, reduce carbon emissions and put auto workers and many others back to work.
