  2. Hey, everyone, I will explain some advantages of PDR over traditional dent repair. I think it will be helpful for you. PDR is the process of restoring the dented or damaged panels of your vehicle’s body back to the factory finish. This is done by reshaping the sheet metal back to its factory-designed shape without causing any damage to the original paint. PDR tools/dent tools such as Led reflection light are used to help the technician see even the finest details of damage that has occurred to the body; along with any imperfections on the painted surface and the Orange Peel – texture on the painted surface of a vehicle. For technicians performing PDR, being able to identify their tooling through the metal panel is essential. Specialized PDR lights cast a specific light contrast onto the panel of the vehicle; creating dark and bright spots that amplify the texture. Think of this process like using a zoom or magnification feature so that every tiny detail and imperfection on the body is easily identifiable. With proper lighting, the technician can see through the panel and make the right pushes to restore the panel back to its original position. Moreover, it ensures that the repair is completed to the highest level of perfection and as if no damage ever occurred to the area. Trained technicians use the PDR technique to remove small dents and dings from vehicle bodies with ease, as it helps avoid repainting the affected parts. It allows vehicle owners to elude expensive repairs such as replacing vehicle panels or even repainting the whole vehicle to match the repaired part. However, sharper dents may still require traditional auto body repair. On the other hand, traditional auto body repair typically involves welding steel pins into the sheet metal and filling in the gaps with fillers (plastic or glass). Conventional repair, more often than not, requires spraying tons of layers of harmful chemicals, in efforts to bring the sheet metal closest to its factory-set shape, as you wait for weeks with your vehicle parked at the workshop.

  12. AmazonBasics High Mileage Motor Oil - Synthetic Blend AmazonBasics high-mileage synthetic-blend motor oil offers an enhanced level of protection for engines over 75,000 miles. Its synthetic blend combines conventional oil with synthetic for cost efficiency with some of the benefits of a full synthetic. An important part of routine maintenance, the motor oil works well for anything from topping off levels to complete oil changes. Whether it’s a beloved older vehicle or one with an uncertain maintenance history, help protect its engine with AmazonBasics high-mileage, synthetic-blend motor oil. API SN and ILSAC GF-5 approved, AmazonBasics high-mileage motor oil offers exceptional quality and convenience. Note: Always follow vehicle manual recommendations. Friction-Reducing Formula AmazonBasics high-mileage motor oil creates a protective coating that helps reduce wear on engine components. By minimizing friction from in-contact moving engine parts (which wastes otherwise useful power), the motor oil helps enhance fuel economy and promotes better power output and performance. Reliable Protection The high-mileage motor oil helps keep the engine clean by minimizing unwanted build-up that can cause damaging rust and corrosion. The motor oil offers a resistance to viscosity and thermal breakdown, plus it helps fight volatility burn-off, which can reduce engine deposits and exhaust emissions. Available Viscosity Grades The motor oil’s grade, as established by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), reflects its viscosity characteristics. The first number(s)—5W and 10W—indicate cold-temperature performance (W for winter), while the end numbers—20, 30, and 40—indicate high-temperature performance (at 100 degrees C). Depending on driving conditions and needs, choose from the following AmazonBasics high-mileage synthetic-blend motor oil grades (shown in chart below; each sold separately):

  15. I purchased some OEM window handles for my 1964 Impala and they do not sit correctly on the splines. The retaining Clips clip on but I have to push the handle in to get it to catch the splines enough to roll the window up or down. Is there any advice to fix this problem?
  16. Might be inside the rack and pinion or a sensor. Any lights on the dash? Check this gm article out https://gm.oemdtc.com/4286/loss-of-electric-power-steering-assist-2007-2012-chevrolet-pontiac-saturn
  17. That looks like a fuel injector. can you take a picture of the bottom and top?
  18. That looks like a steering shaft connector to the gear box.
  19. First try to find out what they fit but because they are 20 series and low profile, I would try to get $150-250 each so $600-1000 as long as the rims aren't bent or damaged.
  20. I'm surprised you are having so many issues with aftermarket axles. Vibration and shaking is usually caused from the axle being out of balance. Try rockauto and carid to see how much the axle is. Also go to a carquest store and see if they can get you an axle from worldpac which will be like OE but cheaper.
  21. Hello, I moved into a new apartment that had a storage area that the previous tenants did not vacate. After busting the lock I found these tires with rims. I am trying to get even a low ball estimate as to what I could sell these on offer up for. I hope this is an appropriate place to ask this question. If not I am happy to be pointed in a better direction. Thank you! 2 of the tires are obviously in better shape.
  22. i like to try and stay OEM on some parts such as Driveline componenst like axles and such because i seem to always have bad luck with aftermarket cv axles, for example, my orignal passanger side cv axle the boot had to be replaced for the cv joint at about 40k but that was done under warranty then it was fine for another 80k at about 120k on the car is when the cv joint failed so i replaced it with an aftermarket axle that went bad and started vibrations and shaking after about 35k then the next one was replaced with a lifetime warranty axle replacment from the same company cardone that last about 30k before the cv joint failed i ended up replacing the axel again this time with a remanufatured instead oa new one so i went iwth the remaned one from napa and now at about 222k so just a little over 30k the thing is shaking and vibrating again i am done with Aftermarket axles i have desided i just don't have the cash on hand and don't want to put a 450 dollars new oem axle on my credit card and thats with a discount i can get from MyLparts online with a discount code i have from another forum im a member of its like a 700 dollar axle but i can save about 250 getting it online form a OEM parts store than if i went into the dealership. BUt i just don't have that kind of money This is for my 2007 Lexus ES350 I desided to start looking so i looked on ebay and i looked on car-parts.com i found a 2011 ES350 lexus that was about 20 minutes north of me at the salvage yard that still had the OEM orignal Axle the car had just under 89k like 88,700 miles on it i called them up and they took the axle of the car i came in and looked at it it looked really clean still had all the orignal stickers with part numbers on it so it was confirmed to be orignal and they wanted 70 dollars for it so 75 after taxes the boots are not leaking the clamps on the boots acutaly look great so that makes me wonder perhaps they even replaced the clamps or perhaps the clamps had been replaced once before i dont know but the boots look like they are orignal because the feel like they are wearhterend they are not smooth and silky like a new boot kit and i was debating about going to napa and getting a new boot kit aftermarket for bouth the inner or outer or just the outer or should i go with OEM boot napa has boot kit for 20 each but oem will cost me 60 at the delaership for just one. I have never hear of a boot going bad on the inner boot kit but i have heard about boots leaking and tearing on the outer cv joint boot so i am wondering if i should just replace the outer boot kit ? and are napa aftermarket boot kits i think from a company called balkamp is the brand and its neoprene material so wondering if i should do this ? I also have had some people who just don't understand that money is not always an option for some people but we want to stay original for quality and have had people say stuff to scare me souch as using a used driveline part is like driving without a seatbelt putting my life at risk so im wondering should i be scared ? should i not be doing this ? or am i going to be ok ? I want to go back to OEM again because im tired of these aftermarket axles that keep going bad and would rather be able to just get a OEM CV joint if the joint ever goes bad again and put it on the oem axle im just tired of these crappy aftermarket ones going bad but am i making the wrong choice of using the lower mile used one ?
