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.

Many in the affected areas have driven through high water that may have damaged their vehicles. Even if your vehicle was not flooded or completely covered in water, the non-profit Car Care Council recommends that you follow these guidelines to check for damage due to water intrusion or contamination: Check interior carpets, upholstery and door and trim panels for dampness. If they are wet, the vehicle needs professional attention. If you simply let the carpet dry, it will quickly grow mildew and give off foul odors. Seat brackets, motors and modules should also be checked for rust and proper operation. Pull the engine oil and transmission fluid dipsticks and differential plug. If the fluid appears milky, diluted, is no longer its original color or is beige in color, then it is likely the pans contain water and the vehicle should be towed to your repair shop. Driving the vehicle with water present may damage the internal parts and require extensive overhaul or repairs. The council reminds motorists that some synthetic differential fluids may appear to be milky, but are not water contaminated. When in doubt, a professional automotive technician should make the evaluation. Check the air filter for water. If it is wet, replace the air filter and change the oil. Check the undercarriage, bumpers, radiator area and frame for mud, grass, dirt, debris and rust. If any of these are present, the vehicle should be washed and cleaned as soon as possible. Have the brake system checked by a professional automotive technician. Check the exterior lights for moisture and water. Replace headlights and bulbs that contain water. Listen for abnormal noises while the engine is running. Make a note of where the noise is coming from and take the vehicle to a professional automotive technician as soon as possible. Have the suspension joints lubricated, if necessary. Many newer vehicles are lubricated at the factory for life; however, these joints should be checked for rust. “It all comes down to how much water the vehicle took in and where it reached,” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “By being car care aware and following these simple guidelines, you can help minimize the potential for damage to your vehicle.”

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.
My 2014 has an exhaust smell in the cabin which is more noticeable when idling. I read online that the exhaust manifolds crack. Well today I’m getting into this and it’s a bitch. The secondary air injection is in the way on this model to access the exhaust manifold heat shield.
Finally got the heat shield of and can see a crack...
Now trying to remove and replace it. Got the O2 sensor out and it’s in bad shape!
So I had some problems with slippage during some of the hot days. Bought this 2014 chevy equinox AWD used with about 90k on it and I guess the tranny was never serviced. Drained and refilled the fluid in the transmission, which was only about 4 quarts or so (need to flush to get it all) and it was black. Did it again in a week or so to mix in some good fluid. Car ran alright but instead of a slippage, it started to develop a hard shift. Next day, started to drive it and it would all of a sudden rev out like its in neutral. Coasted the car to the side of the road and moved the shifter, but would not engage into drive or reverse. i shut the car off and restarted and then it would go into drive (electronic control) but after a few feet it would pop back into a neutral state with the shift indicator in drive.
No codes, no lights.
My other 2014 chevy equinox stared to make noise and after about a week or so it good enough of a hum to be able to identify what wheel was making the noise. I looked around online for a replacement but ended up going with the AC Delco OE from rock auto because the price was less than some of the aftermarket moog and second like versions at the major retailers. Replaced and working good. If you do one of these, you need a slide hammer to get it out, even though it's bolted in.
