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.

    • OEM vs. Aftermarket Parts for Your Car: How to Choose
      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.

    • Replacement Intervals For Oil And Air Filters In Today’s Vehicles
      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 Filters And Air Filters: Important Maintenance Parts
      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.

      I have been a mechanic for many years. I used to buy Napa Auto Parts almost always. I felt the parts were good quality, although more expensive than others. It does not pay to install poor quality parts on a car, they come back, and bite you!  Unfortunately, a few years ago it seems Napa changed their policy on quality. This happened around the time they totally changed the on-line site.  Around the same time, I started looking at Rock Auto on-line. Rock Auto offers each part by a few different manufacturers, quality levels, and prices. I started noticing that despite Napa still charging higher prices, they were now supplying the cheapest, lowest quality parts instead of the better quality they were known for.  Given that, why would a person order from Napa, when Rock Auto is surprisingly lower priced, and you have a quality level choice . Napa seems to be riding on their previous well known name, while keeping the prices artificially high.
        Some prime examples of this is, I purchased a starter solenoid, (eckland, Napa's electrical brand), as a preventative measure. The third start-up, after installing, the solenoid froze in the on position, with key off, and kept the starter spinning and engaged until I could unhook one battery terminal. Burned up the relay, starter, and a couple wires.  I purchased a rebuilt alternator, took it from the box, and turned it, it felt rough turning, as if there was dirt in the bearing race or defective bearing components. I purchased Napa's best fuel pump, and it was very noisy from day one. I purchased a set of Napa Branded, 2 ton each, jack stands. One of them had a defective casting that would not allow the stop to lock in place. Although it seemed it locked, when weight was applied, it fell.  I purchased rebuilt Ford Front calipers from Napa, and with in one year, the unplated soft steel bleeder screws has rusted solid to the caliper!

      According to foreign media reports, sales of light vehicles in the United States last year (2018) were not only higher than those in 2017, but also exceeded analysts' expectations, with a total of 17.3 million vehicles sold. However, analysts and industry observers again said that due to a variety of economic factors, the U.S. light vehicle market will show a downward trend in 2019, but the decline is relatively small.
      Many analysts expect U.S. light vehicle sales to range from 16.5 million to 17 million in 2019. J.D. Power expects between 16.9 million and 17 million vehicles, with retail sales of light vehicles between 13.6 million and 13.7 million.
      As in 2018, the relative strength of the U.S. economy masked concerns about new car prices and rising interest rates. But in addition to these, there will be other problems in 2019, such as the impact of tariff and tax reform.

      Among the top three Japanese car companies, only Toyota did not intentionally rush towards the end of the year. This will leave more foreshadows for the upstream in 2019.
      According to Daily Automobile, Toyota's retail sales in China in December 2018 were 123,300, up 14.7% from 107,500 in December 2017.
      Toyota's retail sales in China totaled 1,474,500 units in 2018, compared with 1,290,000 units in 2017, an increase of 14.3% last year, which is the sixth consecutive year that Toyota's sales in China have increased year-on-year.
      Compared with Nissan and Honda, the other two giants in Japanese auto companies, Toyota showed a double connotation last month: not only were it less than 176,191 Nissan cars in absolute terms of sales, but it was far from 191,907 Honda cars. In terms of year-on-year growth, Nissan fell 4.4%, Honda surged 33.8%, and Toyota's 14.7% was in the middle.

      According to foreign media reports, Tesla announced in a regulatory document released on January 2, local time that the price of all car models in the United States had been reduced by $2,000. Tesla said the price cut would help compensate for the phasing out of electric vehicle subsidies by the federal government.
      Starting from January 1, Tesla Electric Vehicle Subsidies will be halved to $3,750 from the previous $7,500. After the price reduction, Tesla Model 3 started at $44,000 in the United States, Model S started at $76,000, and Model X started at $82,000, excluding tax subsidies provided by federal and state governments.
      In the United States, consumers of electric vehicles can receive subsidies of $2,500 to $7,500 from the government depending on the type of car they buy and the power of their batteries. In the two quarters after the total sales of 200,000 electric vehicles, subsidies will begin to decrease, while Tesla's cumulative sales of electric vehicles will exceed 200,000 in 2018.
      It is reported that Tesla consumers who pick up cars from January 1 to June 30 this year will receive a subsidy of $3,750, while those who pick up cars from July 1 to December 31 will only receive a subsidy of $1,875. After 2020, consumers who buy Tesla vehicles will not receive federal subsidies.
