GAZZUZZ:


There is no relationship between the compressor coil and the condenser unit

Does that mean there is no need for the fan to be put on permanent working position or double cell radiator is uncalled for? Please explain further.
Thanks

Yes, it's back to normal this morning. Thank you
What you just experience is what is being referred to as brake fade .As result of heat generated ,your brake fluid that is in liquid phase boiled and turned to vapour and since vapor is compressible unlike liquid that why u experienced that spongy feeling on the brake cos instead of pressing again liquid your are pressing against air .

Is a 45amps battery too small for a 2005 Acura TL? The battery keeps draining overnight �

Please car gurus here should come to my aid. Am actually loosing my mind. I had problem with my car( Honda civic 2007) which resulted to changing the engine. After the engine change everything was normal but I notice that the ac compressor was not working which I complained to the rewire there. The rewire asked one of his boys to check the ac connection. At first the guy did something and the ac worked. Now in the process of connecting the compressor, the guy did some wrong connection, the car refuse to start since then. Please what could be the problem?

We may call them all sort of unpleasant names but the fact remains that they are still better than our B.Eng, engineers who take their cars to them to fix.

The so- called B.eng shows the decay level and rots in our educational system and we can't use this semi illiterate guys as yard stick ,cos they are engineers on paper, no innovative ideas that solve practical problems.
Modern cars have gone so much sophisticated technologic wise that it takes science oriented geeks to handle them .
I had had opportunity to attend a lot of automotive seminars and workshop abroad and I sees alot of professors and PhD holders running a auto workshop and coming out with lot of high level testing methods and contributing innovative ideas into the industry just because their society value system strive on science knowledge that solve practical problems unlike own which is why you see the artisans handling what the science guys are suppose to take charge .
Seriously the artisans "kazeem" have no business handling sensitive parts cos their mind can't just comprehend those high tech stuff ,and you the car owner will be putting yourself at risk as well.

You must be one very biased person.
Did you read how adubam gave a swiping remark to B.Eng certification or you are just blind to that?

I read his questions more than once, where and how is his statement a pull down syndrome?

He says he is not an engineer on paper. That's a honest conversation. There's more to it guy.

Hi,
I need a little info from anyone knowledgeable before I get a mechanic. This is my first car so I don't know much.
It has been sitting for a month now, and I haven't been around to use it. I tried starting it now. It made a very weak sound like it was trying to start and stopped. Tried a couple of times, same thing. Till eventually it didn't even make the sound anymore. More like a clicking sound.
Please what could be faulty with it now? And how much does it usually cost to fix?
I'm just looking for a fair idea to know what to expect. Also so that some hungry mechanic doesn't swindle me.
Appreciate any info anyone can provide.
Thanks!

The battery is dead. Look for a battery to start the car and charge your present battery.

Does that means it's faulty?
It seems it's not consequential for the daily running of the vehicle....
Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by Alisha4U(f): 4:01pm On Jun 14
Hello house, I really need a good, dedicated and sincere mechanic for my Acura MDX 2008 in Kaduna. I've had a lot of bad experiences with mechanics who are not thorough, money conscious and insincere mechanics and despite spending a lot of money, my vehicle is depreciating every day with recurring problems. Please help me with a reference, I'm almost giving up on my vehicle.

check if you have rust under body. If you do it will be difficult putting the abs back in order.

You will however loose speedometer readings and antilock braking

Drain the oil
, Pour 20w50. Change oil every 2000miles you will be fine.


Note, even the last owner in the USA was not using 5w20.

Evaporator is icing. This is not good.

You have thermostat issues, or possibly a system not vacuumed, or finally a faulty expansion valve .

Remote diagnosis is not possible .
