Five Dashboard Signs On Your Vehicle That Needs Instant Attention. by luvinhubby(m): 9:11pm On May 28, 2017
When any of these lights pop up on your dashboard, better advised to discontinue your journey and attend to it immediately.


1, OIL LIGHT - This light indicates a low oil level or a poor or non circulation of oil in your engine occasioned by faulty oil pumps most times. Ignoring this light can lead to an engine knock.


2, BATTERY LIGHT - This light signifies low battery voltage occasioned most times by a dysfunctional alternator and if ignored will lead to battery run down which will ground most automatic vehicles immediately.


3, ENGINE COOLANT TEMPERATURE SIGN - Indicated by a thermometer sign dipped in water. This signs indicates above normal engine temperature caused by coolant leakage, failed radiator fan or water pump with belt. If ignored, can roast cylinder head gaskets, which can be expensive to replace after grounding the vehicle immediately.

4, TRANSMISSION COOLANT TEMPERATURE - Sometimes appears as TCS light or similar to engine coolant sign, indicates an above normal gear or transmission temperature caused by low or dirty transmission fluid, which if not attended to, can instantly ground the gearbox.

5, BRAKE LIGHTS - A red hyphen(!) sign inside a circle indicates brake issues caused by low fluid level among others. Brake failures are better imagined than experienced, attend to it immediately.



Note - Other dashboard signs are equally important and should be attended to as soon as possible, these are just ones that require instant attention.

In as much that I also celebrate with my Nigerian brothers to celebrate today, but we still need to think back.

What is there to celebrate?

What is there to celebrate when graduates who their parents struggled to send to school cannot get job, to be able to put food on the table of their parents.

What is their celebrate when the epileptic power supply in the country at present is killing the dreams of small scale entrepreneurs.

What is there to celebrate, when people are dieing of hunger everyday.

What is there to celebrate, when people want to leave the giant of Africa to even the worst African country just to survive.

What is there to celebrate when the product of 5naira has increased to 100naira, and the present minimum wage still remain the same.

What is there to celebrate when our roads is still in shambles

What is there to celebrate when our political leaders loot public funds, and invest it only on their present and unborn generations yet to come.

What is there to celebrate when we have godfatherrism in our politics

What is there to celebrate, when a graduate is earning 20k as a salary per month.

What is there to celebrate when a whole president budget billions for medical trip abroad, when our hospitals in Nigeria is nothing to write home about.

What is there to celebrate when our forces kill innocent Nigerians, without justice taking its place.

What is there to celebrate when you can't even work freely in your own country.


I guess its now time to stand up and be counted.

The engine oil indicator is a big concern to me. I saw it and then serviced my car engine and even changed the filter, but the indicator is still on.
.
Auto mechanics have succeeded in get some good chunks of money from me, but no difference.
.
Please what else should I do?

well this is quite stup!d, rash and immature. How can you just attack people unnecessarily just cos they expressed their opinions online.
Its pretty obvious you have several problems and you think cyber-bullying will help you solve them. No! you need serious therapy.
