Why are cars and trucks getting so hard for the average guy or girl to work on?
Cars today are more and more computerized. Working on them not requires a knowledge of technology, more so than mechanics.The average car made is 2011 had more computerized systems and components than the first space shuttle..
Since manufactured in 1997, corrosion of threads would have developed, especially when wheels are constantly exposed to moisture.Also, some may have been cross-threaded. In this case replacing them is the best solution.
They can break, just like any other vehicle. However, they're designed for much rougher use than a civilian vehicle is. They have a very heavy suspension, designed to carry large amounts of weight across uneven terrain, they tend to be designed with solid state circuitry, they're heavily armoured...
Well, it all depends what those "things" are. After you've answered that question, you can narrow "things" to something that can be explained. Things works due to you find effective things which are helpful for your problems resolution, things invalid because you did not figure out what kind of t...
sounds like your linkage is dry it needs lubedif you park on an incline the weight of the car loads up the parking pawl in the tranny and holds it fast suggest using your hand brake before putting tranny in park
When passing a truck, maintain a safe and steady speed, keeping the cab of the truck in your rear-view mirror before pulling in front of it.Pass on the left to maximize visibility and ensure there's enough space between your car and the truck when you merge back over.

Example: Jeep Wrangler drivers very often give each other a wave, in one form or another. I did not know this till after purchasing my Wrangler. I wondered for severa...
GMC does not make cars, only trucks and suvs. GM is the parent company over GMC, Chevy, Buick, Cadillac, etc. So far from my experience the trucks are solid, however I no experience with GM cars made after 1964.
It's not hard if you follow the process of elimination. Each cylinder needs fuel, compression and spark. With more info like the year, make, model and engine we could elaborate.
Each year cars emit more than 300 million tons of carbon into the atmosphere each year in the United States alone. Cars worldwide have a far greater effect.This pollution is believed to increase Global Warming.The emissions also cause smog and damage to the ecosystem.Gasoline leaks from auto fuel...
they release carbon monoxide which destroys the environment.They also release carbon dioxide which is the gas that creates a greenhouse effect trapping the heat in the atmosphere and warming the earth.Engines also release unburned hydrocarbons and Nitrogen Oxides, all of these are pollutants.
the following answer has been underlined by me for your better understanding and is not from any copyright materialcars use:-all of these are hydrocarbon fuels formed due to the decaying of prehistoric animals.the common fact of any hydrocarbon fuel is that when burnt in the presence of air it fo...
A car that refuses to shift or go into gear easily is trying to tell you something is wrong and in most cases the culprit is the clutch or transmission.Transmissions are very complicated and have many moving parts, ignoring a hard to shift issue can quickly spiral into a very expensive transmissi...
Some of the lights are required. The rest are extras the driver/owner added.

Possibly a bad master cylinder.
why do cars and trucks have emission control systems.To help keep the air we breath clean now and for future generations.
Probably the brake booster going bad.
no there one of the best cars for the environment except one other car that is solar poweredThe above answer is a popular misconception on the hybrid. That is how they are sold, the confusion is what the advertisers desire. The reality though is far different.First, there is no solar powered car ...
i think in a car especially if you mean a push bike but if it is a motor bike then a bike! :)
What if your car got impounded for 30 days and your bank won't defer a payment or work with you so you can afford to get the car out?
Then they are going to repossess your car. The bank wants their money. Who's fault is it the car got impounded and has been so for 30 days all the time running up more storage fees. Man up, get to work and earn the money to get the car out of storage and make the payment. Sell something if you ha...
There are no differences between tires for an SUV and a pickup truck. Heavy-duty pickups do require a higher load rated tire than a standard SUV, but besides that there are no differences. Thread pattern and sizes are generally the same also.
about 28 miles one way for me.
1) Cost of mechanics 2) Lack of quality work from same mechanics 3) Ability to control quality of parts, workmenship, etc when one does the work themselves.
Because the young people don't know what is good or bad 1 why would you put fuel pump in gas tank. nitrogen in tire s fuel injection instead of curb electronic exnicton water in gas plus alcohol no acelrator cable useless computer 1000wires or more we have went for simplistic that works to idioti...
People press the accelerator to make cars and trucks move. If you want to make them turn on however, turn the key in the ignition. If this doesn't work add fuel or charge battery. If for some reason you can't get that working head into the mechanic.
That is a question hard to answer.Most cars and engines nowadays require special tools. The engineering principles are the same. The older the car the more you can do without 'franchises' and speciality bits and pieces, for which you have to pay.It is a market that makers have targeted.Whip away ...
Rental car taxes and fees are so high because of the Principal–agent problem.They will book with the most convenient airline, airport, or rental car company, without much regard for cost.Lastly, the US has a tradition of progressive taxation, meaning the wealthy pay higher rates than the poor.
Have your alternator and battery tested. and replaced if required.
Increased contact area in rough terrain or mud conditions, hence better grip.Tread displaces water beneath the tyre in wet Conditions and doesn't let formation of thin film, reducing slippage of tyre and loss of control.Why do buses and trucks have one tyre in the front and two tyres on the rear?
go to a mechaniac and find out what is wrong with your headlights.
Cost of ownership is higher on newer cars, largely because they're more capable, far cleaner and fuel-efficient and far safer.Ultimately, however, we pay for the technology—a 1965 Mustang cost just $2500—both initially and for repairs.Here are some examples of why fixing today's cars is so expens...
The most common is that you either have a vacumm leak or the brake power booster is failing internally. The way to check is: Run the truck and check for hissing noises under the dash (brake pedal area) and under the hood. If no leaks are heard then shut it off & don't touch the brake pedal. B...
What are the most fuel efficient vehicles including both hybrid and/or conventional trucks and cars?
Overall, smaller more compact cars will have better fuel efficiency than larger heavier SUV's. While the average mileage of a compact hybrid is close to 40MPG, average SUV MPG is closer to 20.
engines in buses and coaches are placed underneath at rear or side to facillitate the flat floor inside this allows less noise, more inside room, and luggage compartments under passenger compartment
What causes brakes to drag eventually lock up and get hot on a 1989 voyager pedal also get very hard?
You might want to replace the front rubber brake lines. On the inside of the brake hose they disintegrate, which causes the fluid to go thru the line but not return when pedal is pressed. If it releases when car sits and cools off .then this is probably the culprit.GOOD LUCK
Fire trucks are used in emergency situations. Many times that a fire truck is brought out in answer to a call, someone's life is in danger. That would be a terrible time for the firefighters' equipment to fail. Therefore, it is important that inspections, repairs and replacements are done while t...
It is not so much hard for a car to start when the engine is cold as it is easier for a car to start when the engine is warm.Cars that are hard to start in the cold are usually not new cars any more and because of wear and tear there is more likely to be something that doesnt work as well. when f...
I tried to install an automatic starter kit on a 2002 Mitsubishi Lancer and it did not work so uninstalled now why will the car not start and dashboard lights not work?
Cars fail to start because of one of four major reasons - no air, no fuel, no spark, or no electricity. Since your dashboard lights aren't working, electricity would be a good place to start. Check that there is a charge in the battery and that the leads are connected. Jump start using another ve...
Within the first three years, new cars lose approximate 40% of their value. Used cars have already gone through their major cycle of depreciation. This means that the price will be lower, and its value will be more steady for a longer period of time. There is no sales tax on the purchase of used ...
Are rims bent, check body bushings or check engine with scanner for variations in running
Why are written top speeds of sports cars based on average speeds over a couple of miles when the actual top speed it gets to is faster?
Timed speed over several miles and in different directions eliminates false effects of wind, road conditions, etc, that might affect actual speed. Makes the results more even.
The safest brand of cars is the German brand Volvo, which has steadily done well in safety tests for years. They are well-designed and durable. The company has tried very hard to maintain a quality car, and has thus far succeeded.
push the cruise button on then the set button on some cars you cant set until you reach 55mph
I experienced the same problem with my ford. After checking out a couple things i discovered during a tire rotation that i had a bent rim. These happen when you hit potholes. I was able to replace the rim with a re-tooled one (saved me about $100) and the vibration immediately stopped. The bend w...

so this really depends on HP ( horse power) if a car has more horse power than a truck than it will accelerate faster and also cause cars are lighter than trucks. so you have power and less weight than a truck. so to answer your question it depends on the car and the truck. how much HP either one...
its makes you look more mature cause you got your learner's permit and also sometimes they think if you have a car that you will bring them anywhere they want
Who makes the final decision to produce cheap cars for the working class or luxury cars for the rich and powerful?
Auto manufactures make cars that will sell. In order to sell to people with limited funds they make cars that cost less. They also makes expensive cars for people who can afford to buy them. The try to cover the entire market.
The benefits of having a hard tonneau cover on a pick up truck is that it increases gas mileage as well as an increase of security of your personal goods. Another benefit is better protection from harsh weather conditions.

If you have power steering, the fluid can be low. the belt driving the pump can be loose, the pump itself can be bad, if front wheel drive, the steering rack can be bad. I would check the fluid and belt tension first.
2 separate circuits Check fuses Check bulbs Check stoplight switch Do tailights and dash lights work? Maybe switch
What paper work is needed for you and your wife to bring your 1yr old baby over the road in a semi truck and where or who could you get this from?
That's a matter of company policy, and it's most likely your safety department you'd get it from. I can tell you right now the first thing they'll tell you is that this is a terrible idea, and that is absolutely no place at all for a child - least of all, an infant.

Need a new speedometer or speedometer cable.
The reason smart cars are so expensive is because not many people buy them. The car companies think that since they are great for the environment people will buy them without thinking. Well, they're wrong and they can't make them so cheap or else people may start to think they are bad cars becaus...
ABS and TCS dash lights are both on after getting stuck in snow so how do you reset or what else can be done?
check the connectors at the wheel sensors probably got disconnected by the ice or snow
Why does your truck move when clutch is pushed all the way down and very hard or unable to put into gear or take out of gear as well?
This sounds like the clutch plate and joining parts likely need replacing. the reserve brake fluid canister was empty, i refilled and clutch is working great. may need to bleed lines to master/slave cylinder.
Cleanliness is probably the most important think, along with thin coats, ample drying time and a quality clear coat that wont orange peel to much. Its all in the prep!

The catalyst in t...
What could causes brakes to drag eventually lock up and get very hot on a 1990 Linclon Town Car after driven about 20 to 30 miles but work fine after the brakes are cold or cooled down?
a sticking/partly sticking caliber piston is usually the culprit but a froze parking brake cable could cause the rear brakes to heat up also.
What makes airbags work like the chemical reaction you really dont get what they mean on the internet and so could someone simplify it?
there are two chemicals inside the airbag module that when put together they will ignite when a 12v source is applied to it. its like most other explosives it just needs a detonator. if you can get your hands on a used airbag from a junk yard or otherwise (be careful with it) run two jumper wires...

Their transported after their assembled, because you don't send unfinished shoes to a store, how would you wear it unfinished.
I would suspect a neutral safety switch. This is a mechanism that prevents your car from being put into gear without your foot pressing down on the brake pedal. With the car running put your foot on the brake first, then try shifting into gear. It has to be done in that order or it wont go out of...
mileage is important because it shows you how many miles is on the motor some motors last longer than other motors and if you are purchasing a used car the miles factor into the price of a car the higher the miles the less money a finance company will give you and less money you can get if your s...
Car insurance standards per vehicle is normally based on the vehicles crash ratings, gas consumption, retail price at the time, and body style. The Chevrolet Tracker has a very low crash test rating. And thus, very high insurance premiums. The same can be said for cars like the Dodge Neon.
At about 1700 RPM's you're going 55.
It is hard for a car to go straight into top gear for the same reason as it is to start riding a bike from a dead stop in seventh speed, third sprocket. It's just too much tension, but it would be easy if you swithched while in motion because once moving, your engine merely has to turn wheels tha...
General car insurance depends and varies from state to state. Each state carries a minimum coverage level. Therefore, there is no average rate for any consumer until the state is identified.
