Keeping Tyres In Good Condition

Keep tyres align

Suppose one of your tyres has worn down and you need to replace it with someone else. If the new tyre is not in sync with the rest three, the tyres will wear down at different times! So you need to make sure that tyres are aligned and at least you can curb down the chance of accident while driving on the roads!

Check the tyre pressure

We all know that it is important for us to maintain a certain tyre pressure in the tyres we are using. Depending on the distance we are going to travel and the number of people travelling the pressure requirement changes. But it is important for you to make sure that there is a certain pressure exists in the tyre! The wheel and tyre companies of your locality can help you with it. He will be the best person to tell you the perfect air pressure that needs to be in the tyres.

Keep the second one

While you are travelling to a good distance, it is important for you to keep a spare tyre for your use. You never know what happens in

History Of Car Technology

The First Car

To our best knowledge, the first car began as a toy built for the Chinese Empire by Ferdinand Verbiest. All the first cars were steam powered, even the first passenger capable car invented in the late 1800s. These cars remained only fashionable and not commonly owned for quite some time. During this time many parts were re-invented to perform better. From there public transportation was established in some places, but was scrutinized for safety and caused the Locomotive Act in 1865, requiring these vehicles be proceeded by a man with a red flag and blaring a horn.

Car Ignition System Parts

The first car ignition system seems to be one of the only hole-in-ones in car making history. The first patented design in 1883 by Siegfried Marcus was that of the magneto type, the same design used today!

The Hybrid Car

Although the efforts of the first hybrid car designers were side swiped by the success and efficiency of gas powered vehicles with consumers, the history behind the first hybrid cars is thick from year 1665 to 2000 when Toyota released the Prius, the most popular model to date. The

Rubber Speed Bumps

Cost Effective

Those made from asphalt, metal, concrete or plastic are quite costly and can burn a big hole in your pocket, when you install them on long roads that lead to your property. When you want to buy in bulk, rubber is the most preferred material as it is reasonably priced. One rubber speed bump costs just a little over $100, which is quite a convincing reason as to why you need to buy them.

Installation process

Unlike metal or plastic, rubber speed bumps are very easy to install. They can be dismantled with the same ease as well. On an average, it takes just about 45 minutes to one hour to install it. This makes it one of the most flexible materials to be used in case of an emergency. These can also be taken from one place to another quite easily for installation.

Eco-friendly

Since rubber speed bumps are made from recycle tyres, they are quite eco-friendly. Other materials like metal, plastic and asphalt make use of chemicals like petroleum, which are not safe for the environment. They are very durable and sturdy as they are made from tyres that

Inspect Your Vehicle for Road Trip

Light the way

If you don’t often drive at night, you may not have noticed that your headlights are not as bright as they used to be. Any vehicle inspection should always include a check on the condition of the head light lenses, since the lenses become clouded and pitted over time. If your headlight lenses are in a less than perfect condition replace them, and have the focus adjusted to make sure you can see what’s ahead of at all times.

Keep the engine cool

As with head lights, a vehicle inspection must include a proper inspection of the engine cooling system. Cooling system problems are the second biggest cause of road side breakdowns, so make sure that the coolant contains fresh anti-freeze, that the coolant level is up to the mark, and that there are no fluid leaks anywhere in the cooling system. Repair all leaks well before departure to give you enough time to confirm that repairs had been successful.

Service now, rather than later

Schedule a multi-point vehicle inspection before you leave. This type of vehicle inspection can uncover multitude of defects, or issues that you may not have

Reliable Roller Bearing Suppliers

A reliable bearing supplier will make sure that all its products are manufactured in compliance with the international quality standards, and its reputation should precede it as a leading bearing company in the region. To help you choose a trusted roller bearing supplier, here are some of the must-have characteristics you need to check:

  • Product range – besides roller bearings, the company should have other kinds of bearings, as well as other related products like universal joint, tools, grease, and oil seals, essential in giving their customers a one-stop shop for all their bearing needs.
  • Brand variety – look for a company that offers different bearing brands. In many cases, it is also important to look for ones that are the exclusive distributor of the most in-demand bearing brands. NSK, MBS, KBC, and ILJIN are among the most popular and in-demand bearing brands in the market. They are known for the product quality and if you find an exclusive distributor for these types of brands, then the company is the answer to your search. These types of company also usually has their own brand of bearings.

Steps in Shipping a Car

Choosing the right company

It may get a little confusing but once you choose the right company, it will be smooth sailing from there forward. Now, finding a company may be a little tricky. You may have to do some searching but, the internet will help you significantly! I’ve found that searching the internet and using the keyword “transport” plays a big factor in the choosing process. Also, try not to choose the company just because they are cheaper. Just because its less expensive does not mean that it’s the most reliable so before anything, read the reviews on the company. The internet will give you plenty of different companies to choose from. Once you have a company locked in, make sure you have all their information (I.E. fax number, email or another way to get in contact with the company). Once that is set, you will confirm the decision with the company by signing a binding contract.

Preparing your vehicle for transport

First and foremost, you must prepare your vehicle by removing all personal items from it. Next, you should make sure you have only a quarter tank of gas in your vehicle because

Fuel Saving Ideas

Tire Pressures

Get used to checking your tire pressures regularly, at least once a week. Under-inflated tires cause excessive rolling resistance which results in burning more fuel. Conversely, the right tire pressures will reduce rolling resistance and therefore use less fuel.

How heavy is your load?

It makes sense that if your vehicle is loaded down with stuff your car is going to have to work harder in order to run, which means that it will take more gas to operate. Obviously there will be times when this cannot be avoided. But there may be an accumulation of stuff in your car that doesn’t really need to be there all the time, such as sporting equipment or tire chains. Lighten your load as often as possible and enjoy the perks of fuel saving.

Watch your lead foot

If you are one of those drivers who like to punch the accelerator to make quick manoeuvres, you are likely not going to enjoy any fuel saving. Try to maintain a more consistent speed, and even use cruise control when highway driving. These tips will help you to consume less fuel and may even have you

About Car Covers

  • Indoor – These are required when parked inside the garage. A light car cover can be used for frequent usage with easy on and easy off; heavier material, if it is parked in a garage which sees a lot of movement of children, pets etc. to protect it from bumps and dents and if it is not taken out too often. In addition, they should be mildew resistant.
  • Outdoor – These are usually waterproof, high strength polyester fabrics that are built in with special polymers to shed dust, bird droppings, pollutants, water and tree sap. They are also UV resistant and breathable, allowing any heat or moisture trapped between the car and the car cover to escape easily.
  • Custom – They are specially tailored for your car. They fit every contour of your car and don’t rub and slide against your paintwork
  • SUV and truck and caravan covers are a category that are larger than car covers, but are basically made of the same material
  • Universal car covers – These are low quality one size fits all cars which are baggy, allowing the harsh elements in defeating the very purpose of a car cover.

Stay Aware While Driving Far

Caffeine or coffee is probably the first thing that you would want to take before leaving for your trip. Caffeine is known to keep a person awake and to start the metabolism process. What you don’t want to do is overload it with sugar. If you have a higher sugar level you will end up shaking and noticing things that aren’t important. This is important during any night driving because of the darkness that has metaphorically swallowed the streets.

Make sure that you have a bottle of water whether it’s cold or temperate. You need water in your system to keep your body going and your brain aware. If the weather is extremely hot you might want to take more than one bottle. The brain uses more energy than the body so you will need to keep feeding it.

Eating before leaving keeps your energy levels up and keeps you going. You have to always give the brain fuel for thinking. Try to take fatty foods with you such as nuts or dried fruits to give you a bit more of a kick start.

Don’t allow adrenaline to take over your body. If you allow
