1.Spline and thread use the one-time synchronous processing, reduce the positioning error, improve the concentricity, avoid dithering phenomenon at work.
2. Spheres channel used fine grinding technique after finishing milling, improve the accuracy of the channel, reduce the wear between the spheres, reduce noise and increase the service life when using.
3. Product mid frequency induction heat treatment energy take dynamic monitoring, let the product heat treatment fluctuation difference controlled within the defined scope.
4. Online testing instrument full inspection, stability is strong, can ensure drive shaft flexibility. If flexibility is very tight, after installing, it will increase the wear to booster pump, tie rod end and steering gear, reduce the service life of these parts, the high cost of maintenance.
5.We improved the forging forming mold structure and optimized the molding process, then in the process of forming, we use the mold to distribute the reasonable metal streamline to the products, which could ensure the integrality and uniformity of the metal streamline, eliminate stress concentration, incrase the torque and lifespan.

I have a 2018 rogue with 48500 miles on it. The engine light code is showing maf sensor. I cleaned it and engine runs when I disconnect the top clamp so I know I need a replacement. Has anyone ever tried an maf sensor from ebay or made in china? Just weighing out my options here. Also, is it normal for my car to already need a new sensor being a 2018 model??

In the era of online shopping when countless holiday gifts are available at the click of a button, putting in a little extra time and legwork can mean a lot. The Car Care Council offers these thoughtful and practical ideas for gift-givers who want to go beyond a simple mouse click for their family and friends this holiday season.
“We live such busy and stressful lives these days and sometimes simply taking a chore off of someone’s plate can be the most thoughtful gift,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “The gift of car care will not only let your family and friends check an important task off their list, but it will help keep them safe on the road.”
An oil change and inspection: Regular oil changes are the best way to keep a car running in peak condition, but some drivers find it to be an onerous chore. If this sounds like someone you know, an oil change and inspection may be the perfect gift. Whether you take their car to a trusted professional technician or do it yourself, your family and friends will appreciate the time and effort you put into their gift.
A car wash and detail: Keeping a vehicle clean and detailed helps protect the paint, interior and wheels from harsh weather and damaging chemicals. A busy driver in your life will appreciate you taking the time to have their car professionally cleaned and detailed or doing it yourself.
A roadside emergency kit: For the traditionalist who can’t imagine a gift that isn’t wrapped up and under the tree, the Car Care Council suggests putting together a roadside emergency kit, including items such as jumper cables; emergency flares; a flashlight with batteries; blankets and extra clothes; water and non-perishable snacks; a first aid kit; a portable USB charger; an ice scraper, snow brush and small shovel; and the council’s Car Care Guide, available free of charge at www.carcare.org.
The non-profit Car Care Council is the source of information for the “Be Car Care Aware” consumer education campaign promoting the benefits of regular vehicle care, maintenance and repair to consumers.

This car has nothing but issues, now I have water coming in when it rains and my back seat floor is a puddle. Took my spare tire out and have water in there also. Sprayed the whole car down and can see the water coming in when I spray the roof. Looks like it may be coming from the roof rack area. Took the panels off to look and the roof/body seal may be the culprit. Also found a bulletin on this. I ordered some 3M sealer on Amazon so I'll try and replace the seal. Anyone run into this on an equinox or terrain?

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.
When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.
Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.
You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.
Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.
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.
Air filters, cabin air filters, oil filters and (sometimes) fuel and transmission filters are important maintenance parts that typically are replaced according to a time and/or mileage schedule. A vehicle’s service schedule recommendations can be found in the owner’s manual or in a separate brochure. Unfortunately, many motorists never read – or totally ignore – the recommendations.
Factory service schedules are designed to prolong the life of the engine, transmission and cooling system, to reduce premature wear and breakdowns, but also to minimize maintenance costs while the vehicle is still under warranty. That’s why factory oil change recommendations have been stretched to 7,500 to 10,000 miles or more on many late-model vehicles. Most late-model cars and light trucks no longer have recommended change intervals for transmission fluid and filters, or for fuel filters. These so-called “lifetime” fluids and filters are supposed to last a long time – but they won’t last forever. Experience has shown that “lifetime” filters and fluids don’t live up to the hype.
Fuel filters always should be replaced when a fuel pump is replaced (unless the filter is part of the fuel pump module assembly). Likewise, transmission filters should be replaced if a customer is changing the fluid in their transmission.
Last Line of Defense Against Contaminants
Filters are the first line of defense against contaminants. Air filters keep dirt and abrasive particles out of the engine. A good-quality air filter will trap about 98 percent or more of the particles that can cause trouble inside an engine. As the filter media becomes saturated with dirt, it’s efficiency actually increases. But, as the filter becomes clogged with more and more dirt, it also becomes more restrictive to airflow. The greater the pressure drop across the filter, the more it hurts performance and fuel economy.
Nissan "Pure Electric Vehicle" needs refueling without charging? Annual capacity of 600,000 vehiclesBy 袁春凤 (Tiffany)
According to the NDRC, Dongfeng Nissan will build a new energy vehicle power battery project to form an annual capacity of 600,000 e-POWER batteries. E-POWER is a new energy technology unique to Nissan, which uses on-board gasoline engine to generate electricity, but uses pure electric drive. Nissan calls the e-POWER powered vehicle "pure electric vehicle", but this type of vehicle can only refuel, can not be charged outside. After entering China, the technology is expected to be applied in Dongfeng Nissan's entry-level vehicles in advance.
Nissan e-POWER power system features that wheels are powered directly by motors. In traditional hybrid power systems, when the battery power is low (or in the process of high-speed driving), low-power motors need to work with the engine to provide power for the wheels. In Nissan e-POWER power system, the engine is no longer connected to the wheel, it only plays the role of battery charging. At the same time, unlike pure electric vehicles, the energy source in the e-POWER power system is the engine, not the battery.
