Brake Pad Replacement

The first sign that the callipers need to be replaced is how your vehicle reacts. In some cases, the car will struggle to maintain speed and a potent smell can be noticed if the parts are burnt out. Unfortunately, you will not be able to check the brakes because they will be so hot from the friction caused by braking. This process has to be done immediately to avoid having to replace the rotors as well. Dragging callipers will score and scratch the rotor surface causing it to become worn down and damaged. In this case you will either have to machine the part or replace it completely.

For the mechanic to reach the callipers, they will have to loosen the lug nuts and remove the wheel. If rubber line screws are attached, they will have to remove the rubber brake line at the far end first. Once the component is out, the brake pads will have to be removed. At this point, the mechanic is constructing the calliper to be a component on its own without tampering with the rest of the system. This includes the seals within the component and the piston that contains the hydraulic fluid.

Fuel Injector Burning

1. Long time idling operation

Due to the diesel engine keeps running slowly for a long time, the temperature in the cylinder is low, the fuel combustion is not sufficient, the combustion chamber and fuel injection nozzle are easy to form carbon deposition. So it leads to the deterioration of working conditions for fuel injection nozzle. Especially in winter, it is even more serious under the condition of cold climate. Because the combustion chamber has carbon deposition, heat dissipation is slow, which may cause spray orifice obstruction of the injection nozzle and the oil drip phenomenon may happen. The fuel stays in the nozzle head for a long time, the local high temperature will make the nozzle and thermal insulation jacket burned.

2. The fuel is not clean

Due to there are small particles of impurities in the fuel, the needle valve and needle valve body of the fuel injector will wear. It is possible that the needle valve will be stuck in the needle valve body.Because of needle valve lag, the fuel can’t be periodically, quantitatively and quickly sprayed into the combustion chamber, the oil drip phenomenon will appear, which may cause the fuel atomization is not good and …

Lead Acid Batteries

Lead acid car batteries are energy storing devices made up of lead and lead dioxide plates. These plates are submerged into an electrolyte solution. The percentage of water is 65{08ca10d30646d00694ecfbb2fda19d22c6ce1a9566c60537bc4c0733a053b050} and sulphuric acid contributes 35{08ca10d30646d00694ecfbb2fda19d22c6ce1a9566c60537bc4c0733a053b050} to this solution. When the battery is used to start the car, it gets discharged. The sulphuric acid in the electrolyte solution gets depleted leaving a higher proportion of water. The sulfate is returned to the acid during the charging process. The battery provides high current required by the starter motor to crank the engine of the car. Once the engine is started, the battery is again recharged by the engine driven charging system. In this process, the alternator takes necessary energy from the rotation of engine through a belt to charge up the battery. When the engine is running, the alternator generates electricity for the electrical equipment of the car.

What makes a battery weak?

When the car is exposed to direct sunlight in summers for longer periods of time, it accelerates the process of corrosion and evaporates the electrolyte. This reduces the life of a battery making it weaker. So, avoid getting your car heated by sunlight by parking in a suitable shade.…
