    Mercedes-Benz and Ford Motor Co. would seem an unlikely couple. But in the American auto market they have used similar strategies to carve out dominant, cash-gushing positions in the industry’s two most lucrative segments: luxury vehicles and large pickup trucks. Both automakers, industry insiders say, have sliced the market so finely with so many different models that few will dare challenge their supremacy. Click Here to read more!

    Source: http://www.businessmirror.com.ph/fake-auto-parts-and-road-safety/ ANY legitimate car nut would tell us not to scrimp on automotive parts, especially counterfeit ones, since the “savings wouldn’t be worth the headache”. Lately, there is clamor within the domestic auto-parts industry about the proliferation of fakes being sold by unscrupulous auto supply shops. Most are imported from abroad and costs only a fraction of original parts but bear very identical packaging. Current available data from the Land Transportation Office (LTO) tallies 7,690,038 registered vehicles across the country, bulk of which are in National Capital Region. Even a third of that figure would be a very lucrative market for fake parts. Fakes are not to be confused with original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts. OEM parts undergo the same rigid quality and performance testing standard procedures as original ones. Besides, some of a vehicle’s components are actually made by separate OEM companies as contractors to huge car manufacturers, like Toyota, Mercedes Benz, BMW, or Honda. Examples of top 100 global OEM companies are JTEKT Corp., Bosch GmbH, Denso Corp., Yazaki Corp., BASF SE and NTN Corp. Independent bogus manufacturers may counterfeit both original and OEM parts. Recently, auto enthusiast and veteran journalist Rey Langit hosted auto parts advocate lawyer Noven Joseph Quioc in one of his programs. Lawer Quioc said the Philippines unfortunately lacks facilities for accident and fatality analysis, such as those in developed countries like the US, making efforts to understand the cause of accidents difficult. Quioc said fake auto parts are not treated at the same level as spurious drugs or food items since they don’t seem to have an immediate lethal or health impact. Langit said it is quite alarming that some of the most commonly counterfeited parts are directly related to passenger safety than cosmetic value. Examples are mag wheels, tires, bearings, brake discs, brake pads, rubber rings, axle boots, oil filters and under chassis components, such as tie rods, rack ends and ball joints. In most cases, consumers are unaware that they are buying a fake part since the packaging of counterfeits is almost like that of original products. There are times that a consumer would consciously prefer a fake auto part for the fraction of a cost in order to save. That’s why many car enthusiasts suggest to only purchase parts from reliable and reputable auto supply shops. These shops usually have posters or flyers that show comparisons of packaging and product quality of parts in order to help consumers identify if what they are buying is fake. More often that not, fake products have misspellings, grammatical errors or design inconsistencies, such as misaligned texts or inaccurate colors in the packaging. The quality of the boxes and hologram/security stickers are of substandard quality. Some parts are also plastic-sealed to avoid tampering. “Fake car parts compromise the safety of everyone in the vehicle. For instance, buying fake rims, tires or brakes may not seem much, but many thrifty car owners forget to understand that these parts keep direct contact with the road. Should these parts fail, the accident will most likely be catastrophic, if not cause of traffic,” said Jose Nicolas Calanoc, deputy editor of C! Magazine. “Those who are buying fake automotive parts should ask themselves: are their and their passenger’s lives worth that amount they get to save?” he said. Arnel Doria, president of Safety Riders Association of the Philippines and Safe-T Ryders Training Center, said in a recent news conference that the menace of fake auto parts is not just restricted to loss of life but translates into a loss of revenue for an industry, as well. It also means less taxes and revenues for the government because the firms that make these fake parts do not pay taxes. Worse, many of these fake parts are smuggled into the country. That’s why international and local auto parts makers are coordinating with the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to raid and seize these items. The law-enforcement agency has been at it for almost two decades now, following complaints. Once caught, importers, distributors and retailers of fake parts will be charged in violation of the Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines. Recently, the National Bureau of Investigation conducted simultaneous raids in Metro Manila, Metro Cebu, Davao and Tagum, resulting in a rich haul of fake automotive parts. Again, would you rather risk your life and your loved ones for a fraction of a price? To reach the writer, e-mail [email protected]

    Thanks for joining @MCT ! After you posted this I had to take a look at the wiki on this because I don't know myself. I always thought freon was R22, R134, and the newer R1234yf. Even a shorter word for "refrigerant" but come to find out its a registered trademark for The Chemours Company as a brand (spin-off from DuPont). Interesting read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freon https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemours

    According to the different driving mode, the pump is generally divided into mechanical pumps and electric pumps. Most of the engines now use mechanical pumps, and electric pumps have been used in some newly developed, technologically high engines, such as the BMW 6-series (E63) engine. (1)Mechanical pumps The mechanical water pump is driven by the engine crankshaft through the driving tape, and its rotational speed is proportional to the engine speed. The working methods of mechanical pumps have both advantages and disadvantages. When the engine is working under high speed and heavy load conditions, the heat produced by the engine, the high speed of the pump makes the circulating flow of the coolant increase, so that the cooling capacity of the engine can be improved. When the engine is working under low speed and heavy load, such as traction other vehicles or open air conditioner, the engine speed is low and the speed of pump is low. , which lowers the engine's cooling capacity. (2)Electric pumps Electric water pump has brushless electric pump and brush electric pump. The electric pump is controlled by the engine control unit through the current, which is not affected by the engine speed, and can be flexibly operated according to the actual cooling of the engine. Because the electric pump consumes very little engine power, the fuel consumption of the engine can be reduced after the electric pump is used. Thanks for your reading.

    The measuring rod part of the oil gauge The measuring rod part of the oil gauge generally has three structures: steel wire, steel belt (Bian Chi), and many winding wires. Among them, spring steel wire is commonly used in steel wire structure, and the material is hard, which is suitable for the relatively slow bending ruler tube. The multi strand wire is easy to insert and plugged in the bending scale tube, but the price is higher. The material of flat ruler generally chooses 0.8mm~1.2mm stainless steel strip, and the price is relatively low. As the core part of the ruler, the head of a ruler is the most important part of the ruler. In the drawing, it is easy to rub with the ruler tube that matches with it. The particles produced by the friction will fall into the lubricating oil. The unclean lubricating oil will cause great wear to the bearings of the engine. In the indicator part of the scale, the head can be designed as a roller structure, which is not only effective. The scale has reduced the tube pulling force of the ruler and reduced the scraping of the ruler head and the ruler tube. For the oil gauge with steel strip structure, in order to make the gauge clearly indicate the position of the liquid level, it is easier for users to read the oil gauge. Generally, the head of the flat ruler is treated with sand blasting or press mesh, and some rhombic pits can be set on the head of the plastic. These pits are disconnected from each other, so that the oil can climb up the trough under the siphon effect, which affects the accurate reading of the scale.

    Ford is recalling about 550,000 cars and SUVs in North America to fix a gearshift problem that could cause the vehicles to roll away unexpectedly. The recall covers certain 2013 through 2016 Fusion sedans and some 2013 and 2014 Escape small SUVs. Ford says a bushing that attaches the shifter cable to the transmission can fall off. If this happens, the driver could shift into park but the vehicle could be in another gear. That could let the vehicle roll, increasing the risk of injury or crash. The company says it doesn't know of any crashes or injuries. Ford is advising owners to use the parking brake. Dealers will replace the shifter bushing at no cost. Owners will be notified by July 30. Parts should be available late this quarter.

    Farmers have long known that a good UTV is an invaluable tool. Here are five of the best UTVs for farmers that will surely help them get the job done. When it comes to farming, things are pretty serious. Farmers have no time for messing around, so equipment better work like it should and be dependable. With all the technologies coming out for sport and recreation UTVs, farmers are more interested in things like cargo capacity, engine reliability and towing performance – things the manufacturers are paying attention to with the latest utility UTVs. Here are five of the best UTVs for farmers on the market today. 2019 Textron Prowler Pro XT Textron has been a company on the move for a while now. First it entered the market with the Stampede, then it acquired Arctic Cat, and now we have an all-new utility UTV that was designed with help from Caterpillar. The Prowler Pro has a lot of things in common with another machine on this list, most notably, the engine. It is an 812cc Chery, three-cylinder automotive-style motor that produces 50 horsepower, according to Textron. It will handle 1,000 pounds of cargo in the dumping cargo box and it will easily tow another 2,000 pounds with a 2-inch receiver. It has four-wheel drive, electronic power steering in the XT package, and a locking differential. The front seats flip up for additional space. This is a serious working machine. 2019 Kawasaki Mule Pro-FXT EPS Any amount of research will show that there are a lot of people who really like the Kawasaki Mule Pro-FXT, or the FX model. The Mule Pro-FXT has Kawasaki’s trans cab configuration that lets you switch easily from a three-person cab with a longer bed, to a six-seat capacity machine with a smaller cargo bed. That bed will hold 350 pounds of cargo when in the six-person setup, and 1,000 pounds when used as a three-person machine. It will tow 2,000 pounds on the 2-inch receiver. Remember that 812cc Chery engine in the Textron? Where do you think they got the idea? That’s right, Kawasaki uses the same basic engine in the Mule Pro-FX series. The Mule Pro-FXT is a big, beefy machine with four-wheel drive, locking differentials and a serious get-the-job-done attitude – not to mention an industry-leading three-year warranty. It is easily one of the best UTVs for farmers. 2019 Yamaha Viking EPS When you talk about dependability, a trait farmers very much appreciate, the Yamaha is without a doubt one of the industry leaders. The Viking has proven to be a dependable, stable utility machine. It hasn’t seen many updates over the past few years, but when it ain’t broke… Powered by a 686cc single-cylinder engine that makes tons of low-end torque, the Viking has enough power to get the job done. The real star is the Yamaha Ultramatic CVT transmission. It is as solid as they come. You never hear of a Yamaha breaking a belt. The steel cargo bed can handle 600 pounds of stuff and comes with a thick rubber mat to keep things where you put them. The Viking will tow another 1,500 pounds, too. Get the Viking with EPS for your own comfort. It’ll make it easier to steer should you need to engage the differential lock when in four-wheel drive. It now comes with a three-year limited warranty, too. 2019 Mahindra Retriever 1000 LE Flexhauler Mahindra makes the world’s most popular tractors, so when it got into making UTVs, it worked with Intimidator to come out with a unit that instantly made Mahindra a player in the space. The Retriever, the latest form the collaboration, is a serious machine for the farm and work market. Powered by a 999cc, 83-horsepower engine, the Retriever can handle 2,500 pounds behind the 2-inch receiver for towing. The steel Flexhauler bed will handle 1,200 pounds and can convert to a flatbed in minutes. It even has hydraulic dump assist for dumping those heavy loads of gravel. It has four-wheel drive and a locking differential. The LE version adds a few stylish touches, but also adds a heavy-duty front brush guard and an additional 2-inch receiver up front, making it one of the best UTVs for farmers. 2019 Can-Am Defender HD10 XT The Can-Am Defender is another great machine for the farm crowd. It has a 72-horsepower 976cc Rotax V-Twin and has locking four-wheel drive. It can tow 2,000 pounds and haul 1,000 pounds in the dumping cargo box, too. The best part about the Defender is all the little things the designer thought to include that farmers will really like. The glove box doubles as a tool box and is removable, so you can haul it over to the job. The seats in the XT are very sturdy and flip up, so you can haul more stuff, or have the farm dog ride with you. The XT package also includes a 4,500-pound winch on the front and the digital throttle control has work mode, that controls speed, while still giving you access to all the torque and horsepower. The Defender is easily one of the five best UTVs for farmers. http://www.atv.com/features/five-of-the-best-utvs-for-farmers

    The factory-recommended replacement intervals for filters can vary quite a bit depending on the year, make and model of the vehicle, as well as how it is driven. As a rule, older vehicles (those more than 15 to 20 years old) typically have more frequent service intervals than newer vehicles. Why? Because late-model vehicles require less maintenance, thanks to improvements in motor oils, transmission fluids, engine design and filter media. Many long-life air and oil filters use synthetic fiber media or a blend of cellulose and synthetic fibers to extend filter life. Changing the oil and filter every 3,000 miles was standard practice decades ago. But it’s no longer necessary because most multi-viscosity oils today are a synthetic blend or a full synthetic that resist viscosity breakdown and oxidation for a much longer period of time. Late-model fuel-injected engines also run much cleaner than their carbureted ancestors, which reduces oil contamination in the crankcase. Oil and filter change intervals for most late-model vehicles range from 5,000 to 7,500 to 10,000 miles or more. Many vehicles don’t even have a time/mileage recommendation anymore but rely on a computer algorithm to turn on a “service reminder light” when an oil change is needed. A key point with today’s extended service intervals is that they depend on two things: using a top-quality motor oil that meets OEM service requirements, and a premium or long-life oil filter (brand name or private label) that has the storage capacity to go the distance without clogging. The most common mistake that’s made when recommending or choosing an oil filter is to go with the least expensive filter on the shelf. That can be a big mistake if a customer is not changing their oil for 5,000 miles or more. Many economy filters lack the storage capacity to go beyond 4,000 or 5,000 miles before they clog and go into bypass mode and route unfiltered oil to the engine. Our advice is to always recommend a premium or extended-life filter to every customer who is following extended service intervals, as well as customers who are buying synthetic motor oil because they want the best protection for their engine. Recommended replacement intervals for engine air filters can range from 30,000 to 50,000 miles or more, but it depends more on exposure to dirt than time or mileage. The dirtier the environment, the more often the air filter should be replaced. Inspecting the air filter when the oil is changed is the best way to tell if it is dirty. Cabin air filters that trap both dust and odors typically have a service life of about one year regardless of mileage because the charcoal particles that absorb odors degrade over time. Dust-only cabin air filters should be inspected and/or replaced every two years or 30,000 miles, or as needed depending on operating conditions. In-line fuel filters typically have a recommended replacement interval of 30,000 to 50,000 miles. But many of today’s fuel filters are part of the fuel pump module assembly inside the fuel tank and are “lifetime” filters with no recommended replacement interval. The filter should have enough capacity to last upward of 10 years or 150,000 miles – unless the fuel is somehow contaminated with a tank of dirty gas (it happens!). Most late-model automatic transmission filters also are “lifetime” filters with no specified replacement interval. Under “normal” use, the fluid and filter often can go upwards of 10 years or 150,000 miles. However, many transmission experts still recommend changing the fluid and filter every 50,000 miles for preventive maintenance. Fluid and filter life can be cut short if the transmission runs hot (towing can cause this), or as a result of hard use. Discolored fluid that smells like burned toast is a sign of overheating and should be changed without delay.

    One of the best money-saving products that’s ever been invented is cooling system sealer. Most products will successfully seal minor coolant leaks to stop the loss of coolant that leads to engine overheating. Specially formulated “head gasket” sealers also can stop many head gasket leaks and save your customer thousands of dollars in expensive engine repairs. What’s more, coolant sealers also can be added to the coolant as a preventive measure to plug small leaks before they turn into big ones. Coolant leaks can occur anywhere in the cooling system, including the water pump, hoses, radiator, heater core, thermostat housing, expansion plugs, head gasket, combustion chamber or cylinder block. Regardless of where a leak occurs, the end result is always the same: coolant loss that sooner or later allows the engine to overheat. Overheating is bad news because excessive heat causes metal to expand beyond normal limits and clearances. The result can be piston scuffing, cylinder scoring, valve sticking, damaged valve guides and even warped cylinder heads. Overheating also can crush an otherwise good head gasket, causing the gasket to leak when the radiator is refilled with coolant. Most cooling system sealers can seal small pinhole leaks in radiators and heater cores as well as hairline cracks where the core and end tanks are joined, and porosity leaks in aluminum cylinder heads and blocks. Products designed to seal more serious leaks also can delay or even eliminate the need to replace a head gasket or heater core (both of which are expensive labor-intensive repair jobs). Stopping a water pump shaft seal leak, however, or a large leak in a hose is beyond the capabilities of most products. The key to selling cooling system sealers is to match the product with the leak your customer is trying to stop. And the keys to a successful repair are choosing the right product and then following the directions on the label. Step one is to figure out what’s leaking. Is it the radiator, heater core, water pump or a bad hose? Head gasket leaks are harder to diagnose because leaks are usually internal rather then external. A mysterious loss of coolant with no puddles under the vehicle or obvious signs of leakage under the hood often indicates a leaking head gasket, or in some cases a leaky radiator pressure cap. A head gasket leak can be confirmed by pressure-testing the cooling system, using a chemical test strip that detects the presence of combustion gases in the coolant, or by checking the dipstick for signs of coolant in the oil (yellowish gunk on the dipstick). Radiator caps also can be pressure-tested to see if the cap holds its rated pressure. If it can’t, replace the cap. Sometimes, leaky hose connections can be fixed by simply tightening or replacing the clamp. But if a hose is dripping or spraying coolant, replacing the hose is the recommended repair. Same for a leaky water pump. If a leak is something that a coolant sealer has a good chance of stopping, select a product that is formulated for that type of leak (read the label). Tell your customer to follow the directions for how the product should be used and what, if any, additional steps are recommended to ensure a successful seal. In most cases, the sealer is added to the radiator or coolant reservoir. Makeup coolant then is added and the engine is started so the sealer and coolant can circulate until the leak stops. Additional coolant may be required after the engine has reached operating temperature and cooled back down. Caution: Customers should be warned to NEVER open a radiator cap on a hot engine. Steam can blow out and cause serious burns. Wait until the engine has cooled before opening the cap. Source: http://www.counterman.com/coolant-sealers-can-help-vehicle-owners-save-money/

    “Tommy Boy,” starring David Spade and Chris Farley, is the ultimate movie about automotive parts. In fact, it might be the only movie in which auto parts play a fundamental role in the story. While Tommy Callahan (Farley) and Richard Hayden (Spade) aren’t counter professionals, their cross-country journey in the 1995 film can serve as a valuable resource to anyone who sells auto parts for a living. These clips can teach you what to do – well, mostly what NOT to do – when trying to make a sale. 1. Don’t take “no” for an answer. 2. Guarantees are meaningless. 3. Relax – and be yourself. 4. Don’t try to be too clever. 5. Don’t set anything on fire. Source: http://www.counterman.com/sell-auto-parts-lessons-tommy-boy/

    Hey, Walmart (WMT) , want to shake up a sector just as Amazon (AMZN) did last month when it announced its bid for Whole Foods Market Inc. (WFM) ? Then make a bold move that will enhance your reach, pump up your brand and widen your footprint with a fresh group of shoppers. So here's a disruptive move. Consider buying auto parts retailer Advance Auto Parts (AAP) , the weakest of the big three in the sector, which has 5,000-plus locations in the U.S. The other two players are O'Reilly Automotive, Inc. (ORLY) , the fastest-growing of the three, and AutoZone, Inc. (AZO) .....read more at the link below: https://www.thestreet.com/story/14238985/1/here-s-walmart-s-next-target-as-it-tries-to-beat-off-amazon-a-5-000-store-auto-parts-retailer.html

    I've never heard that really and the big difference is that synthetic oil doesn't break down as fast and offers additives that are friction modifiers. When oil breaks down and loses it's ability to properly lubricate, you get more friction which takes a toll on internal engine parts with wear and gumming up the engine, which is why it's important to regularly change oil. Repair shops used to (may still today) offer oil flushes to clean a gummed up engine. Today, clearances are much smaller and tighter and in some cases you have to use synthetic oil. I would say synthetic on newer cars more than older makes a difference and could extend the life of an engine. Once oil breaks down, turns black, no good.

    Napa is one of the auto parts stores that has their own branded brake pads. I have no idea who makes them, is it a reputable manufacturer? From what I see here, they have Napa Proformer, Napa Premium, Napa Ultra Premium, and Adaptive one. Good, Better, Best scenario. I guess the Napa proformer is the entry level brake pad and the Napa Ultra Premium is the best. If you have used Napa's brake pads before, please comment with your feedback. I found this info on their brakes page: http://www.napabrakes.com/magnoliaPublic/home/products/brake-pads.html Adaptive One®(Specialty) Revolutionary braking system with two unique (inner and outer) ceramic formulations. Adapts to all driving styles and vehicles for consistent pedal feel and safe, smooth stopping under all conditions.

    I just placed my first order online at rockauto, was able to get cheap accuvision beam blades for under $2 each, so I ordered 4 sets for my car. Even with the shipping the blades net were under around $2.16 each since I bought 8 of each for two cars I have that take the same size. Not too shabby.

    I think this relates to many GM newer engines, but I ran into this recently on a late model Chevy Equinox that seemed to have an oil consumption issue. The car was burning 2 quarts every 2-3k miles. now the dealer states that it's normal to burn 1/2 a quart every 1k miles, so this was excessive. I had the oil changed and they used Dexos spec oil and the consumption got significantly less. They say to use a blend or full synthetic. Prior to this I had Valvoline perform the routine maintenance with standard oil not really thinking about it until I noticed an engine rattle after being 2 quarts low, especially on turns. Once I topped it off, it went away. Nevertheless, I felt it was consuming and took it to the dealer. So now, Dexos only approved oil and i never thought about it but it says Dexos right on the oil cap. Anyone else run into this?
