I love learning about auto mechanics and have done lots of myself self taught with books
Regardfless, im more of an oil n filter changer, tune up at
most. Tools are expensive!!! I have talked with others about this same very thread you started...thanks man! Now they will belive me.People at owrk,
ive met ect over the past years.
The sad thing is..it dosnt take a genious to figure all this out.Our internal combustion engines, run on spark plugs. And they often DO foul and
carbon up quickly, usualy within 2 years or 30,000 miles whichever comes first. WHy? BEcause the greatest wear on yuor engine, happens at startup. It
takes oil, at least 8 miles to get to running operating temperature. OR letting it idle for 20 minutes. That, cuases carbon buildup, whcih can be
cleanied without any mechanics help or $$$.You can do it yuorself. Get a 24 oz spray bottle of distilled water, boil it. PUt it into a 24 oz spray
bottle and spray it gently, over 20 miinutes, into the PCV valve or through the throttle body. change plugsd out. Thier has been many claimings of 32
MPH and up. HEAT and carbon is yuor cars enemy, and the car dealers know this. Uneducated americans simply toss thier car out like a disposable
appliance,a nd buy a new one, on plastic aluminum toys.
Now, the only real update that has ever happened on a car modern day, is their intake system. The flow of air thorugh the engine. The japanese
have it donw pretty good, hence forth 34 MPG . but that apperas to be its limit. The longer you sit in trafic, stop n go driving the more fuel YOU ARE
burning up..so when the prices go up again, find alternative routes. cars were meant to be running all the time, BAcked up traffic does not let a car
do what it wa really designed for. american care makers have the worst intakes. Thats what keeps the customer coming back..usualy to the Steeler(aka
Bush has talked about the hydrogen car, obama killed it. Never really got off the ground anywyas. The electric car, bush killed that too. SO
the docuymentayr 'who killed the electric car'. I really dont think its on governments interests to replace the internal combustion engine. TOO
much money to be made and lost on it. Persoanlly this talk about global warming, since the fed seems to belive it, they really dont caree about it.
Their just trying to scare us and profit off of us.
Awesome flag man!!!
