Your vehicle's exhaust system is responsible for ensuring proper airflow and for venting dangerous fumes away from the engine and out the back of your vehicle. The muffler is one of the key parts of that system. It works through every drive to keep your ride quiet and keep the air moving.
Unfortunately, mufflers do sometimes need to be replaced, and yet drivers are often tempted to keep using their vehicle even when they're aware something is wrong with the muffler.
The air conditioning fitted to your car is complicated, albeit essential on a typically hot Australian day. You need to keep it in good working order if you want to remain cool, calm and collected behind the wheel and the best way to do this is to take the vehicle in for regular service. However, things can go wrong, and you may encounter issues along the way. One part of the system that may need your attention is the receiver and dryer mechanism.
If you need to haul important parts or supplies using a heavy-duty trailer, you will want to ensure that this crucial tool is kept in good condition at all times. Certainly, you may pay close attention to the wheels, with a view to making the tyres last as long as possible due to their high cost. However, are you looking beyond the wheels and to the crucial interface between them and the truck itself?
Are you having a hard time starting your car in the morning and experiencing this problem ever since you replaced the battery? In this case, have a close look at the battery itself and the way that it is connected. What should you be looking for?
What to Expect
The primary job of the battery is to provide a boost of energy to the starter motor mechanism in order to crank the engine into life.
Most automatic transmission systems are very reliable and can be expected to last a long time. If they do go wrong, it can often be traced back to issues with the internal torque converter. What is this, how does it work and what type of problem could materialise?
Torque Converter in Action
The torque converter is a very clever device that sits in between the engine and transmission. It takes the place of the clutch pedal and associated mechanism on a manual car and controls the output from the engine.
