Hi
Please I bought an infiniti M37 2012 and want to have it registered here in Nigeria and I have the VIN number but they are requesting for the Engine number before they can register and give me a plate number. Just want to know does this new cars come with engine number because the engine capartment is so sofisticated I dont even know what to touch or remove. Please I need this information.
Re: Car Talk Chat Room by ceysaga(f): 8:43am On Oct 02, 2013
grin grin grin grin well nothing do am at 40psi. The difference is not much cos at 35psi the tire still looked kind of flabby. But I still try anyway whether you like it or not. I tried to remove my spare tire yesterday but ol-boy, My hand was just shaking and knots were damn stiff. The other tire self was too heavy- 195/65/15. I never chop that time so a call my neighbour abeg grin grin grin grin

Re: Car Talk Chat Room by kingschild123(m): 2:07pm On Oct 08, 2013
@idaraCHOBD The thermostat's job is relatively simple, but extremely important. It regulates the engine's operating temperature. It does this by restricting the flow of coolant from the engine back to the radiator. The thermostat is usually located in a housing where the upper radiator hose is connected to the engine. The thermostat is a valve that is held shut by spring tension. A wax filled thermal element in the thermostat opens the valve. As the engine begins to warm up and the coolant gets hot, the wax inside the sealed element expands and pushes the thermostat valve open. This occurs at a preset temperature (typically 195 degrees F. or so), which is usually stamped on the thermostat itself. The thermostat should be fully open about 20 degrees F. above the rated temperature.

The opening of the thermostat allows coolant to circulate through the engine and cooling system. As the temperature of the coolant begins to drop, the wax element cools off and contracts allowing the thermostat to partially or fully close. Thus, by cycling open and shut a relatively constant operating temperature is maintained.
