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.

History required . Vehicle info required

molybdenum0012: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 �
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by donuba61: 3:59pm On Jun 10|
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?
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by dicksonadams(m): 4:28pm On Jun 10|
Ask the rewire what he did wrong and start from there
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by donuba61: 5:16pm On Jun 10|
dicksonadams:The oga said that he did direct connection, that it might have affected the brain box

donuba61:Seriously, kazeem are only good for performing plug and play job on your car like changing suspensions, brake ,etc and not for handling sensitive and high level jobs that concern modules ,ecu ,wiring etc cos they will mess u up .the guy must have ignorantly fried your ecu
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by autologic: 6:34pm On Jun 10|
Teeders:The same fault that is draining 45am battery will do the same to trailer battery.

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.
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by autologic: 7:31pm On Jun 10|
adubam: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.
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by GAZZUZZ(m): 8:49pm On Jun 10|
What is your qualification on paper?
I am not an engineer.
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by OilsPartsCars: 5:55am On Jun 11|
Here you go, with your pull him down syndrome. Always on the prowl looking for whom to pull down, and you are not better for it.
Be asking foolish questions, go to his workshop and ask, oponu
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by kingreign(m): 7:03am On Jun 11|
OilsPartsCars: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?
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by mrover(m): 9:04am On Jun 12|
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.

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.

The battery is dead. Look for a battery to start the car and charge your present battery.
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by cajoextreme(m): 4:57pm On Jun 13|
Thanks for the answers guys.. Will check the battery.

|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by GAZZUZZ(m): 12:24pm On Jun 14|
Disconnect the wire connected to it.
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by UncutSk(m): 2:20pm On Jun 14|
GAZZUZZ:Thanks for the reply...
Does that means it's faulty?
It seems it's not consequential for the daily running of the vehicle....

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.
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by GAZZUZZ(m): 4:34pm On Jun 14|
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

I need help. My 2005 Toyota Camry burns Oil. The Engine Oil was changed in less than 6weeks ago, using Mobil 5w-20 yet it burns oil. The Oil is gauged but now too black&less viscous.
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by Etizz: 7:16pm On Jun 14|
Sirs, pls I need assistant, my car AC brings vapour or something like white smoke when ever I put it ON, but sometimes it goes off and sometimes it stays...what could be the problem, I need to know if it will cause serious damage to my car or the AC.....thanks
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by GAZZUZZ(m): 7:55pm On Jun 14|
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.
|Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by GAZZUZZ(m): 7:57pm On Jun 14|
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 .
