Clean a Car Battery

  • You will need to determine the configuration of the terminals as there are different types. Determining the configuration will help you to pick the correct wrench to loosen the nuts that keep the cables in place.
  • Now, you need to unfasten the cables (negative and positive respectively) from their posts. Twisting might be necessary to release the cable as they might have been put on quite tightly.
  • Before continuing with the process, checking for leaks and cracks is a must. Car batteries lose acid and could corrode the rest of the components of the engine. If you do see any cracks or leaks, the battery must be replaced.
  • Cables and clamps could also have cracks along the wiring. They could easily be replaced with new parts.
  • This is the part where a basic household item is required to clean the battery: baking soda. The ratio to mix baking soda and hot water in a small container is 1:17. This is usually a tablespoon of baking soda and a cup of hot water.
  • Then it is time for the scrubbing and cleaning. A toothbrush would be ideal for this process so that your hands don’t come into contact with the battery.
  • Dip the toothbrush into the baking soda and hot water mixture, and scrub away at the corrosion build up. Usually the clamps and cable posts contain the most build up and will need the maximum amount of cleaning.
  • Once all the corrosion is off, it is an absolute necessity to rinse away any baking soda and loose corrosion with cool water.
  • The battery has to be completely dry before replacing the cables and clamps to avoid short circuiting the system.

Troubleshoot Brake Booster

Vacuum Failure

When the engine of your vehicle accelerates, the vehicle shouldn’t have the vacuum failure. But if this happens, you may need to check the check value and get it replaced if it’s the cause of the problem. It can be found inside the inlet fitting. Once replaced, if the issue is still there, you may want to replace the brake booster.

Locked-Up Brakes

You may want to use fresh brake fluid if your brakes don’t release properly. What happens is that hygroscopic brake liquid tends to absorb moisture. Moreover, an excessive amount of water in the fluid may lead to vapor lock. As a result, the wheels of your vehicle may have to bear more pressure.

Air Noise

You may hear the air noise from under the dash of your vehicle. According to experts, this is not an issue. The sound is generated when you apply the brakes and the air gets into the filter of the booster. You can reduce the noise easily. All you need to do is move around the silencer.

Brake Pedal Won’t Return

If the brake pedal won’t go back after you have released it, you can troubleshoot it. You may have a faulty brake booster spring. According to experts, if your vehicle has a broken spring, the brake light may stay on even if you have released the pedal. Aside from this, the broken spring may cause overheating issues as well.

Info of Changing Flat Tire

waking up and discovering that a vehicle has a flat tire or ending up on the side of the road with a flat tire. The reason this situation is so horrible for many drivers is that quite a few people have no idea how to change their own tire. Once a person has learned how to handle changing a tire on their own having a flat tire becomes nothing more than a minor inconvenience.

Before you get ready to tackle changing a flat tire, make sure that you have all of the proper equipment. Many vehicles come with the necessary materials but it is always better to be safe so that you do not end up being very sorry. Most of these items are in the trunk of the average vehicle underneath a mat. If you are unsure of where the material needed to change a tire is located read your vehicles owner manual.

The things that you need to change a flat tire are a car jack for raising the vehicle, a tire iron, and a spare tire. When you have these items and you are sure the car on level ground use the tire iron to loosen the lug nuts which are attaching the tire to the car. Once the lug nuts are loosened (do not remove them) it is time to use the car jack to raise the car. The car only needs to be jacked up enough to raise the tire two inches from the ground and once the tire is off of the ground it is safe to completely remove the lug nuts and the flat tire. It is then safe to place the spare tire on the vehicle and replace the lug nuts. Make sure the lug nuts are on securely before lowering your vehicle and then use the tire iron to make sure that the lug nuts are completely secure.

Water For Gas

So after about a week or so of contemplating, I decided to actually give it a shot… I figured that the rewards of this actually working far outweighed the expenses of it being a scam… So I read and reread the website… and read it again! Just to make sure that I fully understood every single detail and “promise” that this site claimed their system would do for me. Finally, I ordered the e-book… but I didn’t read it right away… I actually went back and read the sales page again! (a little “obsessive compulsive” huh?) Then I decided to dig in… the book as very well put together. The instructions were very simple and easy to follow. (a little too easy actually) but anyway, I read the entire e-book front to back… and then guess that I did? I read it again! (I know… I know…)

(Moving forward…) Three days later… after reading the book enough times that I probably could have rewritten it myself verbatim, I decided to actually give it a try. It took me a few hours to complete everything… because of course, if I’m going to read the manual almost million times, I’m certainly going to take my time actually using it! I mean, hey, I have to make sure that it’s done “right”! Right? So bare with me here…

After about a week, I realized that I only had to fill my gas tank once! Are you serious? Only one time for an entire week? I drive out of town everyday to go to work… One tank of gas is unheard of for me! I figured that this had to be a fluke or something… So the next week came… and the exact same thing happened! I could not believe it! The ridiculously simple instructions in this e-book actually worked… but I was actually mad… very mad… if I could have been using water for gas all this time, why didn’t anyone every tell me! Do you have any idea how much money I’ve spent just in the last year on gas alone? More importantly, do you know how many Jack in the Box tacos buying gas has cost me? I feel so ripped off…
