Makers of airless tyres such as Japan's Bridgestone Corp. hope driverless cars will herald a breakthrough for their niche technology, which is more than a decade old but underperforms standard tyres in every way except resistance to puncture. Autonomous driving - and the eventual introduction of self-driving taxis - could mean greater demand for puncture-resistant tyres as greater usage of vehicles exposes them to more flat tyres. "In the past, a car would be driven about 20% of the time and s
Some symptoms include a squealing noise from the front of the vehicle, power steering not working, engine overheating or cracks and wear on the belt itself.
The steering system utilized in many modern cars is a rack and pinion steering system.
The serpentine belt, also known as the drive belt, is a belt on a car engine that works with the idler, tensioner, and pulleys inside the accessory drive belt system.
The intake manifold gaskets are some of the most important gaskets found on an engine.
Some symptoms of a bad intake manifold gasket include engine misfires, decrease in performance, coolant leaks or the engine overheating.
The brake master cylinder is one of the most important components found on modern car braking systems.
Some symptoms of a failing brake master cylinder include abnormal brake pedal behavior, contaminated brake fluid and an illuminated check engine light or brake light.
The coolant temperature sensor, also known as the coolant temperature switch, is an engine management system sensor that is used to monitor the temperature of the engine’s coolant.
Signs of a bad or failing coolant temperature sensor include poor fuel economy, black smoke from engine, overheating of the engine or a check engine light.
