The money you spend to purchase your car only represents a portion of the cash outlay necessary to keep your vehicle running properly. You’ll also need to allocate part of your budget to periodic repairs and replacement parts. Both are inevitable.
EBD. Electronic Brake Distribution – The ABS system is further enhanced by Electronic Brake Distribution which adjusts braking pressure front to rear, based on the weight distribution within the vehicle.
Oiling up the bolts and working away the rust should eventually free them. If not, you may need to borrow or rent an impact gun to remove the stuck bolts.
If the light stays on constantly and you don’t notice any difference in your cars ability to drive, it does not mean you’re out of the repair shop- just yet. This could mean you have a permanent fault in your emission control system and your car will likely continue to run but you run the risk of the car dying or not starting. You will need to get the car into a repair shop for a repair and correct diagnostic testing.
However, this is not an easy job to some. Most of them do not unbolt the exhaust and they have to cut it using a saw or a cutting torch. It could be a bit difficult but with these simple steps, you will be able to do this simple task.
Now find the flange on the scrap O2 sensor recycling. It will have two bolts that you will need to remove. Be careful in this process because your whole exhaust system is only supported by two rear hangers on the muffler. This is where it will be handy to have a helping hand. Have your buddy hold up the front section of the system, otherwise it will crash to the ground.
Your brake pads have a consumable surface called the lining. This surface presses against the rotors when you engage your brakes to bring your vehicle to a stop. Even though it is heat-resistant and resilient, the surface wears away with use. When the lining becomes worn, it exposes a small metal piece that rubs against the rotors. This creates a squeal that indicates the brake pads need to be replaced.
Wheelbase – The measurement between the car’s front and rear wheels – ie. long-wheel base versus short-wheel base. A longer base equates to a large car/more space. A short wheel base can sometimes make a car more nimble, but can deliver a less flat ride – for example, some short-wheel base 4x4s feel like they tip or sway around corners. This is because of combination of their height and the short wheel base.
