So even though <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/our-services/#paintless-dent-removal" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">paintless dent removal</span></a> can be done in <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XNuisf5R2Mo" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repair shops</span></a> or even on your own, it would still be better to avoid dents all together to save money and hassle. When it comes to parking there are different ways to do it, unless the establishment you’re parking to states their preference. But otherwise, here are some reasons why it may be a better option to park in reverse when you’re in perpendicular parking lots whether you’re a newbie or already a seasoned car owner.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Calculating Distance From The Car Beside You Is Easier When Backing Up</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Newbie drivers who are still working on their parking skills actually try to park away from other cars as much as possible. This is because of the fear of bumping and damaging other vehicle since their control on maneuvering and ability to accurately measure distance are still a bit off.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">This is where parking in reverse makes your life easier. Due to how side mirrors are designed to work for cars, backing into parking spots makes it easier to see you side panels and avoid bumping into anything. Not to mention how reverse parking also works best for other car features for safety like rear view cameras and sensor.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Backing Up Into Your Parking Spot Requires Lesser Space To Maneuver</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">In a packed parking lot, the space gets tighter which means you may not have enough to maneuver your car into a spot without hitting another car. But with reverse parking you only have to worry about your front bumper possibly hitting what’s in front of it because your rear wheels will be your pivot point. Therefore, even with a lot less wriggle room, reverse parking will allow you to park damage-free.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. Compared To An Open Traffic, Backing Into An Empty Spot Is Safer</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Granted, maneuvering in reverse is difficult due to reduced visibility (and because we naturally drive forward). That’s why, backing into an empty spot is much safer, as opposed to backing into what essentially is open traffic.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Now, in the latter situation, if your car has considerable blind spots due to narrow rear windows, and isn’t equipped with <a href="https://mycardoeswhat.org/safety-features/rear-cross-traffic-alert/" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: red;">rear-cross traffic alert system</span></a>, you will need someone to assist you. Otherwise, it’s risky for your car, other cars, and road users like pedestrians, cyclists, stray pets, etc.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2019/04/4-common-culprits-of-bumpy-ride.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">4 Common Culprits Of A Bumpy Ride</span></a></h3><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-50220418620572101792019-04-21T23:19:00.001-07:002019-04-21T23:19:16.946-07:004 Common Culprits Of A Bumpy Ride<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://revol.com.sg/garage/" target="_blank"><img alt="So if you start noticing any of these problems.

But even when you’re already at your destination and parking your car, an <a href="https://injury.findlaw.com/car-accidents/car-accident-basics.html"><span style="color: red;">accident can still happen</span></a>. Doesn't&nbsp;matter if it’s a minor accident or not but the point is, as a car owner, you’d want to avoid it as much as possible. Not only because your life and others life can be put at risk but also because it may mean hefty </span><a href="http://revol.com.sg/garage/" style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repair</span> </a><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">cost as well as other damages. So if you start noticing any of these problems. Stop hesitating and take your vehicle to your mechanic right away.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Tire Problems</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Tires heat up and wears faster on long trips, add that to a hot weather and you’re a sure candidate for blowouts. So you better see to it that you’re not driving with really worn tires, if you are then replacing them before you leave is a must. Doing visual inspection will also keep you aware of wear, cracks, slipped belts, bulges or other abnormalities when it comes to your tires that can affect your driving.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Suspension Problems</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If your car is bouncing a lot before stopping, you’re experiencing especially harsh impact when driving over potholes and bumps, or if you notice the vehicle leaning to one side then you’re most likely dealing with suspension problems. <a href="http://revol.com.sg/garage/" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Go and visit your trusted car servicing center to get your springs checked out and whatever repairs or replacements to be done</span></a>.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. Transmission Problems</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When it comes to transmission, you want it to go into gear like it should without any delay or difficulty. Otherwise, you’ll really feel bumpiness while driving like you’ve never before. Don’t let this problem go unattended for too long if you don’t want to spend on an expensive new transmission.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>4. Brake Problems</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Brake pads are the ones that grip the rotors so that the car slows down or come at full stop when you hit the brakes. On the other hand, the rotors are the surface that the pads rub against. If these two are too damaged, it could not help slow or stop the car while you’re driving which can be a great risk to your life on the road.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2019/04/six-car-smell-that-you-should-get-rid.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Six Car Smell That You Should Get Rid Of Right Away</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-87841291283556840482019-04-04T23:05:00.001-07:002019-04-04T23:05:11.503-07:00Six Car Smell That You Should Get Rid Of Right Away<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/" target="_blank"><img alt="Here are the usual culprits behind the smell your car is giving off and what you can do about them." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-oyH_sopCT28/XKbucZN7n4I/AAAAAAAACnw/JmhdMn0GV-E-7IsgbSttswalfmIWwRLAQCLcBGAs/s640/Six%2BCar%2BSmell%2BThat%2BYou%2BShould%2BGet%2BRid%2BOf%2BRight%2BAway.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Do not underestimate odd smells in your car. More often than not, it’s not just because of dirt that you haven’t had the time to clean. This usually indicates that something is not right with your car, especially if you’re getting a burnt smell. Moreover, these odors can not only be irritating but also harmful for your health. So try to pay more attention to your car when it starts giving you all these odd smells and act accordingly. Here are the usual culprits behind the smell your car is giving off and what you can do about them.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Cigarette Smell</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Cigarette smoke isn’t only stinky, it’s also quite sticky in that it forms a resin on surfaces. That resin is called tar, and though it’s not the same stuff that’s used to pave roads, it does share a couple of similarities. The first step to removing this smell is to stop smoking in the car. Next, open all the doors and windows on a nice, warm, windy day. Then go over every surface with a 50/50 water and vinegar solution. That should be able to cut through the resin. If you have trouble, add a couple of drops of dish soap to the mix. Allow to dry completely before closing the doors</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Mildew</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The distinctive smell of mildew flooding out of your air vents is usually caused by a buildup of bacteria and mold. This can happen to older cars that have had bacteria growing behind the dashboard for years and in cars that rarely run the air conditioning, as they don’t enjoy the drying effects that it provides to excess water on the coils. So if you do your own car cleaning, make sure you clean your car AC vents too.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Moldy or mildew smell is often due to A/C evaporator. But sometimes it can also come from leaky heater core especially when you see fog on the inside of your windows or water leak if the fog is accompanied by a musty smell. Strong indication of this is when your seats and carpeting are also wet.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. Food</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Spilled drinks or food you had while driving creates odor that can really make your head hurt. Everyone is guilty of eating in the car because of busy schedules this can’t be helped. However this is one downside of that. So if the smell that’s bothering you smells like spoil&nbsp;food, check under the seats first. There’s a fair chance your groceries or fast food that fell managed to roll under those. While you’re at it, you might wanna do an overall check for snacks that may have been in there for a while or any trash that causing foul odor and start cleaning. If you don’t have time, you can always take your vehicle to car servicing here in Singapore for a thorough car cleaning.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>4. Leaky Organism</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Dribbling oil on the exhaust manifold won’t just cause bad smell but can also create thick blue smoke which often indicates that the leak is really bad. They key is to find out why you’re having oil leak and where it’s coming from to get it fixed accordingly. If you have no idea how to do this yourself, <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XKbv-9hR2Mo" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">you can always seek car servicing here in Singapore</span></a>.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If you haven’t had any sweet drink or food in your car and accidentally&nbsp;spilled it but you’re getting a sweet scent it’s probably your antifreeze. If the smell is concentrated inside the vehicle accompanied by a filmy fog form on the windshield when the heater is on and you’re seeing antifreeze on the floor inside your car, you’re looking at the heater core. You might want to look for car heater alternatives if bypassing the leaky core would be too much on your budget at the moment.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>5. New Car Smell</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">New car smells are sort of poisonous; it is not something to be idolized in the form of a scented tree. Those so called “new car smells” are called <a href="http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/volatile-organic-compound-VOC.html" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: red;">Volatile Organic Compounds </span></a>(VOC), and they are the same smells common in refinished rooms and new houses. Carpet glue, chemicals from making vinyl, drying paints, and hardening plastics all do something called off-gassing. You really don’t want to breathe that stuff; it’s one of the things that causes sick building syndrome, and it is potentially carcinogenic.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">However, don’t make the mistake of using an air freshener in an attempt to eliminate this odor. Using air fresheners doesn't&nbsp;eliminate the foul odor, what it does is overpower that smell. So the bad smell is still there but it’s simply being masked by the air freshener. The problem is that the scent that air freshener produces, though pleasant, can be dangerous to your health because they’re made up of chemical compounds. So you’re practically just layering another smell that’s just as harmful. You can make your own air freshener but if you’re not interested in air fresheners and you simply wanna get rid of the awful car smell, you can use coffee beans or baking soda. They may not make your car smell flowery or fruity or those kind of smell that store bought air freshener produces, but they absorb bad car scent.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>6. Smell</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If your car is carburetor&nbsp;it’s normal to smell a hint of gas but if your drive fuel injected vehicles you shouldn’t be able to sniff any. So, getting a really strong gas odor should send you into investigation mode to look for the culprit because this smell is not good in any way. Leaky fuel lines, stuck injectors, bad fuel pressure regulator, and other issues can cause leaks which can get to the entire engine and brings raw gas scent. <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XKbvIthR2Mo" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Take your car to car servicing right away when this happens to get the problem fixed</span>.</a></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2019/03/things-you-should-do-when-going-for.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Things You Should Do When Going For A Test Drive</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-78271548119255670992019-03-26T19:51:00.002-07:002019-03-26T19:51:56.655-07:00Things You Should Do When Going For A Test Drive<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/" target="_blank"><img alt=" here are some tips for you to make the most well-informed decision when you’re about to go for a test drive." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-oDqREiDj1yA/XJrZXgeArFI/AAAAAAAACnk/6_0TvyGfWdQKHSgRHZErQrwp6u1jfeoKwCLcBGAs/s640/Things%2BYou%2BShould%2BDo%2BWhen%2BGoing%2BFor%2BA%2BTest%2BDrive.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Buying a car can be expensive no matter how you spin it. But what’s more costly is purchasing one that isn’t actually worth the money you spent! So here are some tips for you to make the most well-informed decision when you’re about to go for a test drive.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Do Your Research</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When you go to a car dealer, you’d find that you gravitate towards the kinds of cars that you already like. So before you even go there and look into every information you can get about that specific model. If you can find a guide on the dealers website or brands website that you like that would be great. Those guides usually has all the current models and their specs. The car manufacturers provide all the details so you can have peace of mind that you are actually getting factual data. Some dealers even have a form that you can fill out after reading the guide where you can request a test drive on the car that you’ve picked.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If you’re having a hard time choosing between a couple of vehicles, try to compare their specs sheet side by side so you can have a better look at which is better based on your needs in a car.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Familiarize Yourself With The Car</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">It’s easy to be blinded with desire once your dream car is right in front of you. Besides, you've&nbsp;probably have researched it a million times online and have seen every possible photos or videos so you think you already know everything there is to know about it. However, the image that you have in your head isn’t always how things are in real life. So you really have to be critical and make sure you've&nbsp;got everything covered by inspecting the exterior and interior thoroughly.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Check features that might affect your daily drive like misplaced cup holders, hard-to-operate buttons, inadequate trunk space, and ease of entry and exit for the driver, front, rear, and 3rd row passengers (applicable). Some models also feature folding 2nd and 3rd row seats to maximize cargo capacity, which is an added bonus. For pickup trucks, make sure to check if the rear bed has the size that you’re looking for. Some dealerships also offer bed liners that protect the payload. The fit and finish of the whole interior is also something that you should be looking at. See if the panel gaps are even and take note of any irregularity. However, take note that the quality of materials greatly depends on the vehicle’s SRP.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Feel The Drive And Make A Mental Note Of What You've Noticed</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Once you’re about to give the car a test drive, don’t assume you’re done scrutinizing. This is just actually the time you need to really focus on how it feels while driving it because that’s where the make or break happens. Although test drive are often done within the showroom, ask and see if they can allow you to drive the car further.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Now don’t be too excited and drive right away. Sit and check things that you can while you’re at the driver seat. Are the gauges legible? Can you easily adjust the seat to your comfort? Does it fit well to into the cabin? Can you effortlessly check the side mirrors and see all corners of the vehicle? Since you’ll be the one driving, see if you have no problem reaching the steering wheel and pedals. If you do, are the both adjustable? Remember that these two are what allows you to safely and comfortably maneuver the automobile so they should feel just right for you.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Now onto the performance. What you've&nbsp;learned in your research based on the manufacturer’s claims should match well while you’re driving it. See if it can actually produce as much power as it says on its specs sheet. Try to accelerate and decelerate and see if the brake pedals is as responsive as if your life depends on it. Now just because it’s a test drive doesn't&nbsp;mean you can’t try<a href="https://www.driverknowledgetests.com/resources/how-to-perfect-the-three-types-of-parking/"> <span style="color: red;">different kinds of parking</span></a>. If it comes with park assist system then check how accurate it is. Test the knobs, use the signal lights, toggle the headlamps, and try everything that you see on the dashboard. Ask questions if needed.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Let’s go to the comfort factor. Is the air conditioning and head unit working as it should? Does it cool the car down easily and adjusts to extreme outdoor heat? If you can, take someone with you so you can verify how the ventilation feels at the rear seats. How about the head unit, can you operate it while driving without distraction? Do you find it easy to figure out the unit’s interface? If you’re someone who like music while driving, then check that too. Does your music player or phone connects well to the stereo? Try and check everything that you know you’ll be needing and using while driving if it becomes your car because that way you’ll be able to kind of see how the experience will be on a regular basis. The car maybe brand new but if things feel off right off the bat don’t disregard it otherwise <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XJraNGBR2Hs" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">you might visit the car servicing shop sooner than you should be</span></a>.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Reflect On The Experience</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Assuming you did those checks, then make sure you’ve made a mental note on them. Because after test driving it you have to rely on that initial driving experience and see if the car fits your needs and preferences. Don’t feel like you have to make a decision right away. A car is not a cheap purchase so take your time weighing its pros and cons. Go ahead and list them down if you have to. Just remember that no matter how high-end the cars you’ve tried driving, they’ll have features they will come short to your requirements. That’s where you compromise and go for the one that you can live with for a long time.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2019/03/things-you-should-know-about-engine.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Things You Should Know About Engine Coolant</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-32304254868896317392019-03-13T02:30:00.000-07:002019-03-13T02:30:28.843-07:00 Things You Should Know About Engine Coolant<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XIjKikFR2Hs" target="_blank"><img alt="Learn more about engine coolant and keep your car and your wallet free from avoidable car repair expenses." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-llCLdl8QyW8/XIjJJUTSLOI/AAAAAAAACnM/Q6uxwkNkCAMwlImptKF_nQir1obEoSYzgCLcBGAs/s640/Things%2BYou%2BShould%2BKnow%2BAbout%2BEngine%2BCoolant.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Your car runs on six types of fluid that does different jobs in order to keep your car in good running condition. But like any fluid, they’re not permanently there as they need to be topped up and replaced every now and then because otherwise they will deteriorate and have opposite effect to your car.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">One of those fluids is the coolant which allows your engine to maintain safe temperature while running. So you can’t deny how important this fluid is for your car. Learn more about engine coolant and keep your car and your wallet free from avoidable car repair expenses.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>When To Check On Your Coolant</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If you follow your preventive maintenance service schedule, then you’re most likely up to date when it comes to your coolant checkup. But you should also take your driving distance every time you drive into consideration. So to be safe, it’s best to do it once every two weeks.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">That may sound too often since coolants typically lasts longer than that, but you’d be wise to check still to see if there’s a leak. This is often the reason why your car overheat and your fuel economy gets affected if you run on little to no coolant too.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>When To Change Your Coolant</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">So now you know how often you should be checking your coolant, you’re probably wondering how to figure out if it’s time to change your coolant. Well, if you have a modern car, it is usually advised to flush it out every 10 years or 160, 000 km. Check your <a href="https://www.edmunds.com/how-to/how-to-find-your-car-owners-manual-online.html" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: red;">user manual</span></a> to confirm it because it may still depend on the vehicle you drive, the brand or type of coolant you use, and the distance you cover over a period of time. It’s important that you adhere to the suggested coolant change interval as it may cause your car to overheat at a maximum level if you don’t.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>What Happens When You Miss Changing It</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Coolant becomes acidic when left in the engine for a very long time. When your coolant becomes acidic, it would no longer keep rust from attacking your engine. Rust on the insides of your engine spells out disaster, as you could face more expensive services just to save your engine from dying—for good. However, it isn’t just your engine that’s at stake. Coolant also keeps your radiators from corrosion so you’re also putting the components of your cooling system at risk.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Signs That You Need To Change Your Coolant</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">For whatever reason that you fail to change your coolant or haven’t checked on it for a while, you may start noticing problems in your car. Pay attention to these signs to hopefully get it fixed right away and reverse the damage early on.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Your Car Overheats Quickly</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Your car’s cooling system is what’s keeping it from overheating. So when the cooling system’s running condition becomes less ideal due to leaks then your car run the risk of overheating. This is why it’s always advised to fix even the smallest leak as soon as possible in order to avoid <a href="https://autoinsider.me/2018/06/top-9-causes-of-automobile-overheating.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">overheating</span></a> and possibly an expensive car repair.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>There’s Leak On The Floor</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The coolant, as the name suggests, helps the radiator to cool down.&nbsp; However, when there’s a leak or crack in the radiator, you’ll see coolant leak on the floor underneath your car, since the coolant flows through the radiator.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>You Can Smell A Sweet Scent While Your Car Is Running</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">While it may smell nice, this could actually mean engine coolant is leaking from a component related to car’s cooling system. Just remember not to touch the radiator cup when it’s hot in attempt to check what’s wrong.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Coolant Level Depletes</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If the level is below the minimum line, top it up to the maximum line and monitor on a daily basis. If you have to top up the coolant reservoir each time it is checked, this could indicate a leak. If it seems that you vehicle is always low on coolant then it’s reasonable to suspect that your radiator have gone bad or at least failing.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Think car maintenance and <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XIjKikFR2Hs" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car servicing</span></a> are an unnecessary expenditure? Think again! Because by keeping your car in good running condition means not needing to buy a new ride after every couple of years, not spending money on major <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XIjKikFR2Hs" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repairs</span></a> due to malfunction, and more importantly avoiding hospital and damage expenses in case of an accident because of malfunction too.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The more you keep its maintenance up-to-date the more your car’s condition is restored therefore prolonging its lifespan.

But the question is, are you fully ready to go on a road trip? To make sure you get the best out of your travel experience and that you’re prepared when unexpected things come your way on the road, here are the questions you should ask yourself before you even start packing.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1.

But then, even if it’s pretty easy to change a flat tire, the question is do you know how to do it? Don’t assume you can always find someone to help change it for you. So better learn this essential skill before you find yourself in a middle of nowhere with a flat tire.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2.

However, having the skills is only half of the solution. You also have to have necessary tools to actually do the repair! If you don’t have tools, maybe it’s time that you buy them.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>5.

However, just because it’s easier to drive an automatic doesn't</span><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">&nbsp;mean you won’t get problems with it if you don’t drive it properly. So to make sure that that doesn't</span><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">&nbsp;happen, here are the things that you definitely shouldn’t do while driving an automatic.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Engaging P Before Coming Into A Full Stop</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When your gear stick is engaged to P (Park) what happens is that, it stops the transmission from rotating which prevent your car from moving forward and backward. Do that while the car is in motion and you risk damaging the locking pin that locks up the automatic transmission. This is why it’s never a good idea to engage P when you’re still moving. The same thing when you’re at a stop light, you still shouldn’t engage P. This is because you’ll have to go through R (reverse) and N (Neutral) before you can shift the lever to D (Drive) when the light turns green which takes a lot of effort for the vehicle to do. Aside from that, when shifting from P to D, sometimes people accidentally engage to either R or N which could be a problem when you’re on a bumper to bumper traffic situation.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Going ‘Neutral’ At Stop Lights</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">You've&nbsp;probably heard the unwritten rule of not putting your car on D at a stop light in order to avoid wearing out the transmission. While that may make sense, sometimes putting the vehicle in N at a stop light can be a problem too. How so? Well, people tend to forget things, even actions that they just did like going Neutral at a stop light. As a result, they end up revving the engine to no avail when the light turns green which waste fuel when doing so. This is why you may want to keep the gear in D, even at stop lights, unless you’re really going to a full stop.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Changing Gears While The Vehicle Is Moving</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Some drivers who are parking their vehicle tend to change gears even while the vehicle is still in motion. Switching gears while the vehicle is moving is a habit that you should break because this can damage the vehicle’s transmission. If you want to shift from D to R or vice versa, you should wait for the vehicle to stop moving before doing so.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Coasting In Neutral</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Putting your gear stick in N limits your control over the car. So while coasting in neutral to save gas is a good thing, you should prioritize having full control of your ride while moving which only happens of your gear is in D because this allows you to react faster and safer. Besides, most modern automatic cars nowadays are designed to be fuel efficient even if the gear is in D, so there’s really no point in compromising full control over your car while driving.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Launching Your Car</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">In a nutshell, ‘launching’ is accelerating a vehicle from standstill, similar to drag racing. This works by revving your engine while the gear is in N and dropping it into D to launch the vehicle forward. While this may amuse your friends, launching an automatic car is not a good thing because this will wear out the bands in your transmission. You may look cool for the time being doing that, but you may end up with pricey<a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XGthWvpR2Hs" target="_blank"> <span style="color: red;">car repairs</span></a> in the long run. It’s not worth it dude.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;helvetica neue&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Majority of cars today are automatic. So if you’re looking for a specific car, it’ll be easier to find if you prefer it over manual. Also, shifting or using the clutch pedal will be the least of your problems. Considering that shifting isn’t an issue with automatic transmission car, you can rest assured that you’ll have a smooth ride. However, with a complex system, a lot could go south on you which of course means maintenance will follow. If you don’t mind not having the “hands-on” precision drivers usually get with manual, then this might work for you. And just like everything else in life, innovation comes with a price. Be prepared to shell out more cash if you prefer <a href="https://www.artofmanliness.com/articles/how-automatic-transmission-works/"><span style="color: red;">automatic transmission</span></a> cars.

A quick car safety inspection is always recommended every time you use your car but no one hardly do it even when going for long trips. What many people don’t realize is that spending a couple of minutes doing car inspection could prevent a lot of road mishaps or get you out of one with minimal injury and damages. If you don’t wanna be the one ending up sorry later and have someone telling you I told you so, make it a habit to at least do the following whenever you’re taking your car out for a ride.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Tires</b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Tires heat up and wears faster on long trips, add that to a hot weather and you’re a sure candidate for blowouts. So you better see to it that you’re not driving with really worn tires, if you are then replacing them before you leave is a must. Doing visual inspection will also keep you aware of wear, cracks, slipped belts, bulges or other abnormalities when it comes to your tires. Moreover, don’t neglect your spare. If you have a properly inflated spare then you can change your own tire when the need arise and save you tow bill or road service call.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Under The Car</b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Since you’re already kneeling by the tires, then might as well take a quick look under to see if there’s any oil or coolant leak.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Windows And Mirrors</b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Your car windows and mirrors help you see the road clearly from all necessary angles. So don’t underestimate their importance. All you have to do is make sure they’re clean and not blurry from dust and dirt and if there are no cracks as those things can affect visibility.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Wipers</b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">As mentioned above, visibility is vital when you’re driving, so if your windshield wipers are failing already then replace it. To see if they’re still good, you just need to run your fingers along the rubber part to make sure they’re still supple to touch. If they’re hard then it’s time for replacement. Don’t wait until you’re driving on a rainy day and the wipers can’t clear the windshield before you realize how important it is not just for <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/our-services/#.XFufPMFR2Mo" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car grooming</span></a> but also for your safety. It’s worth checking the windscreen washer works too.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>The Fluids</b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">While learning to change your fluids is a different thing, you should at least know how to see if you’re running low or it needs to be changed or if there’s&nbsp; a leak. Clutch fluid, which is often the same with brake fluid, coolant, windshield wash and power steering fluid should be at appropriate level, especially if you’re going on a long ride. Otherwise you’d be risking accident or breakdown on the road.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>The Lights</b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Sit in your car, turn each light or signal and have someone see if they’re working or not. Don’t settle with blinking lights; if they’re not fully functional replace the bulbs. Don’t wait until it’s time to go before you do this because it takes time. Bringing spare bulbs for each light won’t hurt either, just in case.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><b>Seatbelt</b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Not to be too morbid but your seatbelt is the only thing that’s keeping your head from smashing onto the windshield and be thrown completely out of the vehicle in case of a collision. So always check of it locks properly and give it a tug to see if it still has a good resistance.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;">Driving doesn't seem like a life-threatening activity because you’re essentially just going from one place to another. But even when you’re already at your destination and parking your car, an accident can still happen. Doesn't matter if it’s a minor accident or not but the point is, as a car owner, you’d want to avoid it as much as possible. Not only because your life and others life can be put at risk but also because it may mean hefty <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XFucasFR2Mo" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repair</span></a> cost as well as other damages. So, aside from investing in a better car complete with the latest safety features like front crash avoidance system and <a href="https://auto.howstuffworks.com/car-driving-safety/safety-regulatory-devices/cars-making-blind-spot-less-dangerous1.htm" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: red;">active blind-spot detection system</span></a>, it helps to perform quick check before going out to see if there are any problem that may lead to an accident on the road.</span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><br /></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="white-space: pre-wrap;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2019/01/regularly-scheduled-car-maintenance-you.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Regularly Scheduled Car Maintenance</span></a></h3><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2019/01/regularly-scheduled-car-maintenance-you.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">&nbsp;You Don’t Wanna Screw Up</span></a></h3></div>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-69181192038084230842019-01-27T17:50:00.000-08:002019-01-27T17:50:19.714-08:00 Regularly Scheduled Car Maintenance You Don’t Wanna Screw Up<div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XE5az8FR2Mo" target="_blank"><img alt="The more you keep its maintenance up-to-date the more your car’s condition is restored therefore prolonging its lifespan.

Think again! Because by keeping your car in good running condition means not needing to buy a new ride after every couple of years, not spending money on major <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XE5az8FR2Mo" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repairs</span></a> due to malfunction, and more importantly avoiding hospital and damage expenses in case of an accident because of malfunction too.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The more you keep its maintenance up-to-date the more your car’s condition is restored therefore prolonging its lifespan. With that, you’ll be able to enjoy your car longer than it would if you just let minor damages turn into unrepairable ones due to neglect.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Tires</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If you’re not sure about the recommended tire rotation interval, check your owner’s manual or you do it every other time you get an oil change. Doing this regularly promotes even tread wear and helps the tire perform as designed.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Also, they shouldn't&nbsp;be overinflated nor under inflated. Otherwise they’ll wear out faster than they typically should and will affect vehicle handling and fuel economy. To avoid this, check your owner’s manual for recommended tire pressure and always stick to that. It’s best to check your tires’ pressure at least once a month but do it more often if you always go on long trips or you carry heavy loads all the time.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Fluid Levels</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">It does feel like you are spending more by adhering to maintenance schedule when there seems to be nothing wrong with your car. But that’s exactly the point, by ensuring that you have the correct levels of oil, transmission fluid, antifreeze, wiper fluid, power steering fluid and brake fluid all the time, you can avoid expensive car repair as well as risking your life while on the road.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Wipers</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Most young driver doesn't&nbsp;pay much attention to this. But, you’d realize how important maintaining well-functioning wipers are when it’s raining and you need to clear your view but your wipers won’t do their job. Visibility is vital when you’re driving, so replace them every 6 months or at least once a year.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Air Filter</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Okay, here’s the thing, your air filter job is to make sure you are breathing clean air as you drive. When the air filter itself becomes too dirty to function it puts your health to risk because it could pump your car full of dust and allergens. This is why it’s important to change your filter every three months, as it also prevents <a href="https://www.comcare.gov.au/preventing/hazards/chemical_hazards/airborne_contaminants" rel="nofollow" target=""><span style="color: red;">airborne contaminants</span></a> from being pulled into your car’s engine. Don’t worry it’s so simple you can easily do it yourself as long as you follow instructions on your owner’s manual, so no need to spend on car grooming services in Singapore.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Battery</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">There’s a battery cleaning brush available in the market that you can use if there’s a leak, mineral, or other build-up in the contacts. Dirt and dampness can damage a battery case, causing it to lose charge. To avoid this, ensure that the case and terminals are checked and cleaned during car services. If you notice corrosion or acid on battery terminals, clean it off with water and cover the terminal connection with grease to avoid it recurring. Might as well buy a cheap battery tester or jump starter in case you find yourself in need for a jump, while you’re at it.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Oil Change</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Always consult your owner’s manual to know your car’s required oil change interval. Don’t just think it’s every 3,000 miles because it’s a standard. It differs for every car. Motor Oils Have Antioxidants. This antioxidants helps limit oxygen exposure for moving parts which could cause rust and corrosion. Therefore, forgoing oil change is actually putting your car at risk of damages. Aside from that, try to use only the grade, viscosity or weight of oil that is set for your particular car.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Spark Plugs</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Check and replace your spark plugs if you don’t want to compromise your engine’s performance. You can get them changed regularly, as specified in your manual, to prevent breakdown and wasting money on fuel. Spark plugs in good condition result in the engine running cleaner and more efficiently. Why? Because it ignites the air/fuel mixture in the engine combustion chamber a lot better. Check yours always and replace when necessary.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span><br /><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2019/01/things-you-need-to-learn-about-paint.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Things You Need To Learn About Paint Protection Film</span></a></h3></div>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-83041446609359984412019-01-15T18:06:00.000-08:002019-01-15T18:06:38.467-08:00Things You Need To Learn About Paint Protection Film<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/our-services/#.XD6N08FR2Mo" target="_blank"><img alt=" here are the things that you need to learn about it to get a better idea of what you’re getting out of investing in this procedure." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-8xMsONwPhLU/XD6KXltxIGI/AAAAAAAACl4/M8mFk77RgBgeIxkapcwU5CUqMh4qTOfRQCLcBGAs/s640/Things%2BYou%2BNeed%2BTo%2BLearn%2BAbout%2BPaint%2BProtection%2BFilm.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">It sucks to find a scratch on your car, even if it’s so tiny right? Well, getting an unsightly scratch on your car’s paint is never fun because touching up even the smallest one cost time and money. So why not invest in a paint protection film for your car and avoid paint damage in the first place. Sounds good right? But for those who have no idea about paint protection film, it’s normal to feel hesitant about it. So here are the things that you need to learn about it to get a better idea of what you’re getting out of investing in this procedure.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Not All Paint Protection Products Are The Same</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Don’t just settle with a known product because it’s what popular. Always shop around and compare price and quality. Sometimes a different store offer discounts that other stores don’t or carry better kinds of paint protection product. Until you find the best one for your needs and budget, keep looking around.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Prevention Is Better Than You But It’s Not Too Late For Older Cars</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Like most things, prevention is better than cure. A good paint protection system should protect your car long-term. However, if you haven’t protected your car from day one – a good system should be able to improve your car considerably, with a notable difference and also continue to further protect your car from the day you have applied the paint protection product.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. You Shouldn't&nbsp;Settle With Car Waxing</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Most people love shiny cars because it makes the car look expensive and sleek. To achieve this look, they often opt to wax their car because we all know wax can help give that sparkling effect. However, the problem with this is that it is temporary and easily melts especially when constantly exposed in the sun. A much better option will be paint protection because it can provide the same luster for your car but is more durable compared to wax so it last longer.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>4. Dirt Can Damage Your Paintwork</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">People don’t just seek car servicing in Singapore due to engine problems, more often than not it’s due to exterior damage from different kinds of dirt like grease, grime, and bird poop. When left unattended for extended period of time, they can cause serious paint damage on your car. Avoid the stress and unnecessary expenses by keeping your vehicle clean.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>5. There Are Reasons Why Car Dealers Tend To Be Drawn Towards Certain Products</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Popular car dealers have to take care of their reputation if they want to stay on top of their business. In order to do this, they have to maintain the quality of products and services that they provide. This is why they only use good paint protection products that gives an incredible glass shine and maintains the value of your new car.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>6. A Car’s Paint Work Helps Maintain Its Value And Can Increase Resale Value</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Every time you do something on your car to either upgrade its look or performance, it either maintains or increases its value. By deciding to invest in <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/our-services/#ZeTough%20Titanium%20Paint%20Protection" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">paint protection film</span></a> you are definitely increasing its value because this prevents exterior damage while making your car look attractive!</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>7. It’s Totally Unnoticeable</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Worried the film will be visible? Worry not because it won’t be! Just make sure you’re using high quality brand and have a professional apply it for you to ensure a smooth finish.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>8. It’s Very Reliable Because It Was Originally Developed To The U.S. Military</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When equipment, tool, or anything is designed or intended to be used for <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Armed_Forces"><span style="color: red;">U.S. military</span></a>, you know the quality is good. So you can rest assured that you spent your money well.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>9. Custom Installation Offers Better Protection</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Okay, maybe you’re a bit reluctant to avail custom installation because you know it costs more and you want to save money as much as possible. But, remember that smart investments, in terms of paint protection, are those where you spend quite a bit but offer better fit and best coverage which you know will last longer.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Whatever the problem with your car’s paint, do not wait too long to get it fixed, especially if the car’s body has been exposed. If you wait until chips and dings on your car turn into rust before you take care of it, prepare yourself for bigger problem and heftier car repair costs. Without protection, the bodywork of the car can begin to corrode. Regular cleaning and drying of the car will be sufficient to handle most problems. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to inspect your car for more serious damage.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"> Here are more reasons for you to want paint protection film installed on your car and realize how much you and your ride will benefit from it more than you thought it would! </span><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="485" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" scrolling="no" src="//www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/key/47ZtrxbpwFAWUB" style="border-width: 1px; border: 1px solid #ccc; margin-bottom: 5px; max-width: 100%;" width="595"> </iframe> </div><div style="margin-bottom: 5px;"><br /></div></div>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-71898928181955833772019-01-08T01:50:00.004-08:002019-01-08T01:50:56.937-08:00Reasons Behind Poor Fuel Economy<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/" target="_blank"><img alt="we cannot deny how convenient it is to have your own car.

Gasoline price! Yes! In case you’re not aware, it can be a pain and isn't likely to go significantly cheaper anytime soon. However, we cannot deny how convenient it is to have your own car. But if you start being aware of these poor fuel economy culprits, it should help you make necessary changes and adjustments to improve your car’s fuel efficiency which in return helps you save money, not to mention the overall running condition of the vehicle.</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Speeding</span></b></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">I know, it feels cool to drive fast, it makes you feel like a bad ass racer, but it lowers your gas mileage by 33% at highway speed and 5% around town. So unless it’s an emergency, you might want to slow down.</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Skipping Regular Maintenance</span></b></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">This one benefits your car’s overall performance, which is good because if the vehicle is at its tip-top shape then it’ll also mean better gas mileage. Better not skip on your <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.XDRvjOxR2Mo" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car servicing appointment</span></a>.&nbsp; Any experienced motorist can appreciate the value of car maintenance. They understand that if problems are diagnosed and rectified on time, it can save a lot of money, time, and most importantly, stress! Getting your vehicle regularly serviced means you won’t be running it down like so many other motorists do. Running on low fuel, running on tires with little to no treading, running with no coolant – these are things that can and will increase the amount of money you put into your car and consume more gasoline which also costs a ton over time.</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Defective Fuel Injectors</span></b></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If your fuel injectors are faulty and insufficient fuel is being injected into the engine, your car won’t run efficiently. A less efficient engine means increased fuel consumption.</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Clogged Air Filters</span></b></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If the air filter is not in its best condition, meaning it’s clogged or too dirty to produce clean and cool air to mix with fuel to create combustion, the more gasoline your car consumes. In the long run, it pays to check it regularly and change when it gets dirty. The manual that comes with the car usually have instructions for changing your engine air filter as well as mileage estimate on how often should you replace it. That should come in handy since it’s imperative that you change it on a regular basis.</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Improperly Inflated Tires</span></b></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">This means they shouldn't be overinflated nor under inflated. Otherwise they’ll wear out faster than they typically should and will affect vehicle handling and fuel economy. To avoid this, check your owner’s manual for recommended tire pressure and always stick to that. It’s best to check your tires’ pressure at least once a month but do it more often if you always go on long trips or you carry heavy loads all the time.</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Faulty Spark Plugs</span></b></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When your spark plugs are covered with engine oil, ash or other deposit, it does cause misfire, but once there’s black smoke that may indicate spark problems that can lead to engine damage. Engine damage leads to less efficient engine which as mentioned before consumes more fuel. So if you start noticing that your car backfires a lot or smoke is coming out of your exhaust, especially while you’re on the road, pull up at the roadside and call for a tow. You need to get your vehicle checked by a mechanic immediately.&nbsp;</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Wrong Oil</span></b></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">You should have at least a quart or two of oil as emergency supply, especially if your car requires a specific kind of oil. This should help you run your vehicle further in a safe zone when it suddenly stops in the middle of the highway. Plus, if you aren't using an oil that reduces friction or the oil recommended by the manufacturer of your vehicle, you could be paying the price with poor fuel economy.</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><b><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Bad Driving Habits</span></b></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Excessive idling, <span style="color: red;">j<a href="http://stopaggressivedriving.blogspot.com/2010/11/jack-rabbit-starts.html"><span style="color: red;">ackrabbit starts</span></a></span>, stepping on the gas as soon as the light turns green, freeway driving, and the likes all contribute to decreased gas mileage.</span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2018/12/4-times-when-your-ac-unit-seriously.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"></span></a><br /></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2018/12/4-times-when-your-ac-unit-seriously.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">4 Times When Your AC Unit Seriously Needs Help</span></a></h3></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div></div>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-59528791015155312082018-12-18T23:17:00.002-08:002018-12-18T23:17:59.532-08:004 Times When Your AC Unit Seriously Needs Help<div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a height="360" href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#Air%20condition%20Servicing%20and%20Re=" immediately="" mechanic.="" of="" scenarios="" should="" some="" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aYtdfrMkebg/XBnueQPOJbI/AAAAAAAAClU/yRMkLp9stTclQanoaKyWR8qXPusFn7ShwCLcBGAs/s640/4%2BTimes%2BWhen%2BYour%2BAC%2BUnit%2BSeriously%2BNeeds%2BHelp.jpg" take="" the="" to="" unit="" vehicle="" where="" width="640" you="" your=""></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#Air%20condition%20Servicing%20and%20Repair" target="_blank"><img ac="" are="" border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" ere="" height="360" immediately="" mechanic.="" of="" scenarios="" should="" some="" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-aYtdfrMkebg/XBnueQPOJbI/AAAAAAAAClU/yRMkLp9stTclQanoaKyWR8qXPusFn7ShwCLcBGAs/s640/4%2BTimes%2BWhen%2BYour%2BAC%2BUnit%2BSeriously%2BNeeds%2BHelp.jpg" take="" the="" to="" unit="" vehicle="" where="" width="640" you="" your="" /></a></div><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When you live in a tropical country like Singapore, driving with your air condition unit running is must. But aside from that, it’s not enough that it is running but it should also be running smoothly otherwise it’s no use having it in the first place. That is unless you like driving uncomfortable and drenched in your own sweat. Just imagine your AC unit not working properly, everyone from the driver to the passengers in the car will suffer. Here are some of the AC unit scenarios where you should immediately take your&nbsp; vehicle to your mechanic.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Weird Smell Is Starting To Come Out From The Vents</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The distinctive smell of mildew flooding out of your air vents is usually caused by a buildup of <a href="https://www.moldbacteria.com/mold/indoor-mold-and-bacteria-and-their-health-effects.html" target=""><span style="color: red;">bacteria and mold</span></a>. This can happen to older cars that have had bacteria growing behind the dashboard for years and in cars that rarely run the air conditioning, as they don’t enjoy the drying effects that it provides to excess water on the coils. So if you do your own car cleaning, make sure you clean your car AC vents too.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. It Won’t Turn On</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Driving when the AC unit is not working can be an unpleasant experience. On extremely hot days, an air conditioning system can overheat and this can cause the fan to burn out. A broken dial can also affect your ability to switch the auto air conditioning on, as well as a broken switch, a stuck valve, a wiring fault, a blown fuse or an obstruction in the air ducts. So if you’re having this issue, it’s best that a professional can take a look at it fix the problem and not let it get any worse.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. AC System Is Blowing Hot Air</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">This can really suck because if there’s anything worse than an AC unit not working at all is an AC unit blowing hot air instead of cool air. When this happens, you’re probably looking at variety of reasons like damaged cooling fans, a blocked or broken condenser, an internal obstruction, an electrical fault, and/or low refrigerant levels. When this happens, it’s best that you take your car to a <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#Air%20condition%20Servicing%20and%20Repair" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">trusted car servicing center</span></a><span style="color: red;"> </span>right away to get it checked and fixed as soon as possible.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>4. It Won’t Turn Off</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">This doesn't&nbsp;seem like a problem until you’re getting too cold behind the wheel and you’re consuming way too much fuel than you usually do or your car’s battery gets drained because the AC keeps running even with the engine switched off. The culprit behind this can range from faulty or loose ribbon cable, broken controls / dial stuck in the “on” position, broken selector switch, shorted blower resistor, shorted blower motor relay, shorted a/c controller, and/or shorted blower control circuit.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2018/11/5-possible-culprits-of-car-battery.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">5 Possible Culprits Of Car Battery Draining</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-34175229600286300482018-11-07T01:26:00.001-08:002018-11-07T01:26:19.575-08:005 Possible Culprits Of Car Battery Draining<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.W-KujJMzaMp" target="_blank"><img alt="Here are some of the most common reasons for a dead car battery." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-6wWzcWsw-RY/W-KkiCt74ZI/AAAAAAAACkY/u0jYRqzhVc8oO74p_JtQ3PMkY9x84HR_gCLcBGAs/s640/5%2BPossible%2BCulprits%2BOf%2BCar%2BBattery%2BDraining.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">If you’ve ever been the victim of a dead car battery you know that they die at the most inconvenient of times. Whether it’s on your way to the airport, work or picking up your kids from school it is always a pain. If you have recently noticed your car not starting consistently, it could mean that your battery is close to dead. If you see the symptoms of a dead battery in your own car you should try to figure out why it is happening. Here are some of the most common reasons for a dead car battery.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Human Error</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Mistakes happen, especially when you’re tired or very busy. Sometimes that’s the reason why you’re car’s battery is dead is you left the headlights on or didn't completely close the trunk. Overnight, these can cause drained battery which will prevent your car from starting the next day.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Parasitic Drain</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">There are some components in your vehicle that continues to run even after the key is turned off.

Bad Charging</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If your battery drains even while you’re driving, there’s a fair chance that your charging system isn’t working properly. In this case, it wouldn’t be a surprise if you end up stranded on the road with a drained car battery because many cars power their lights, radio, and other systems from the alternator, which can make the battery, drain worse if there's a charging problem.

Defective Alternator Diode</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">A car alternator recharges the battery and powers certain electrical systems. If your alternator has a bad diode, your battery can drain. The bad diode can cause the circuit to charge even when the engine is shut off, and you end up in the morning with a car that won’t start.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>5. Old Battery</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Sometimes your car’s battery drains way to fast is because it has simply run its course. Many people don’t pay attention to the lifespan of batteries until it’s too late. Typically, they last for three to five years. If you find that it’s not holding a charge as well as it should be and it is in this age range, it is likely that it is time to invest in a new one.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2018/10/ways-to-keep-car-maintenance-and-repair.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Ways To Keep Car Maintenance And Repair Cost Down</span></a></h3></div>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-67642101111121480582018-10-25T03:24:00.001-07:002018-10-25T03:25:17.587-07:00Ways To Keep Car Maintenance And Repair Cost Down<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/" target="_blank"><img alt="nowadays, it’s not only important to accept and understand the need for car maintenance and repair but it’s crucial to be practical about it and know how you can spend less on them without compromising your car’s performance and look." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-c3JEVzKwn20/W9GWbBWpeSI/AAAAAAAACkM/lAL0PkMX5IUIngIhh5ExoA8Gr0kFfLFOgCLcBGAs/s640/Ways%2BTo%2BKeep%2BCar%2BMaintenance%2BAnd%2BRepair%2BCost%2BDown.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Think car maintenance and car servicing are an unnecessary expenditure? Think again! Costly, maybe, but definitely necessary. Because by keeping your car in good running condition means not needing to buy a new ride after every couple of years, not spending money on major car repairs due to malfunction, and more importantly avoiding hospital and damage expenses in case of an accident because of malfunction too.</span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; white-space: pre;"> </span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The more you keep its maintenance up-to-date the more your car’s condition is restored therefore prolonging its lifespan. With that, you’ll be able to enjoy your car longer than it would if you just let minor damages turn into unrepairable ones due to neglect.

But what you should know is that even if you’re the type who never misses a maintenance car checkup or takes all the preventive measures, car engines are bound to give at some point. So how do you know if it’s time for some serious engine repair services? Here are the cues that you should pay attention to.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Check Engine Light Is On</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">This light don’t go off for no reason at all. So when it does, don’t assume that whatever problem that it may be telling you about can wait, because if it can, it wouldn’t be switched on. Many of the issues it detects relate to power loss, so do not ignore this <a href="https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/ominous" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: red;">ominous light.</span></a></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Cut Out Or Struggle Up An Incline</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">When this happens, there’s a big possibility that your fuel filter dis clogged, hence your engine is losing power. To keep your engine free from gunk, the filter end up accumulating the dirt this is why the fuel struggle to get through it. As a result, the fuel doesn’t reach the engine in a timely manner and you lose power when you’re up an incline.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>There’s A Lot Of Shaking</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Engine tremble when idle at a stop light and tremors through the steering wheel or into the rest of the vehicle are often followed by loss of power. These are known symptoms of misfiring cylinders. If this is your engine’s case, there are three most likely reasons: spark loss, lost compression or a way-out-of-whack air-to-fuel ratio. Any of these three not only needs a lot of work but as well as expertise to diagnose and solve. Therefore, it would be best for you to take your car to the mechanic for a <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repair</span></a>.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Backfiring Or Smoking Exhaust&nbsp;</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">This can mean there’s too much fuel or too little spark, but either way they can both cause power loss. When your spark plugs are covered with engine oil, ash or other deposit, it does cause misfire, but once there’s black smoke that may indicate spark problems that can lead to engine damage. When you notice either of these while you’re on the road, pull up at the roadside and call for a tow. You need to get your vehicle checked by a mechanic immediately.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Car Loses Power When You Try To Accelerate</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Sounds like your fuel system is malfunctioning which is keeping your engine from drawing more fuel to accelerate. Fuel system may malfunction because of clogged injector, leaking fuel line, or gummed-up filter or kaput fuel pump. While you may be able to fix the problem yourself if you’re familiar with this and you have the proper tools, make sure you have the right diagnosis and skills before you proceed. Otherwise, it may be best to consult a professional especially if the problem is a bit more complex than usual.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="https://autoinsider.me/2018/09/how-to-detail-your-car-to-professional.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">How To Detail Your Car To A Professional Standard</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-38760351440313345182018-09-24T02:00:00.004-07:002018-09-24T02:00:49.397-07:00How To Detail Your Car To A Professional Standard<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/our-services/#.W6inrWgzZnI" target="_blank"><img alt="Here are some tips to help you detail your car like an expert!" border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Q_ksZzvlyaM/W6imdh53TmI/AAAAAAAACjQ/ALO3oZnRlzcKaAyukhqfa3mriDd6w5rZwCLcBGAs/s640/How%2BTo%2BDetail%2BYour%2BCar%2BTo%2BA%2BProfessional%2BStandard.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Going to the <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car servicing center</span></a> is great but we all know we can’t always go, so we end up taking care of the car detailing ourselves. But just because we aren’t experts in that field doesn’t mean we can’t achieve professional standard results. Here are some tips to help you detail your car like an expert!</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Dry Glass Surfaces In Two Directions</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Streaks are annoying, it makes it look like you did a sloppy job cleaning your car. To avoid this, try drying the surfaces in two direction. For example, go vertical when wiping first then go over it again in horizontal direction.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Clean The Top Most Portion Of The Windows</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When you don’t clean this part it comes back ruining your effort to clean because buildup dirt and grime can drip and streak eventually. So roll down the windows and make sure you clean this part first so you don’t forget it later on.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Treat Your Trim First</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Black plastic trim requires different care and maintenance from the rest of the bodywork. To keep plastic trim looking its best, we’d recommend treating it with a black restoring product before waxing and polishing the surrounding metalwork.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Apply Wax With Buffer –Don’t Remove It With One</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">A power buffer is a great way to get professional results, but only when you know how to use it properly. For best results, you should only use it when applying wax on your vehicle, not when you’re trying to remove it.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Use Plastic Bag When Checking Surfaces</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When you apply wax, or polish or even when you just had it repainted, it takes time for the product to dry and set. But aside from that, you also have to check for imperfections like bubbles or any dirt that got stuck on it. Naturally you use your hands to feel for those imperfection, but the thing is doing that will leave fingerprints. To avoid this put your hand in a standard plastic carrier bag and run it over the surface of the car.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>The Cloth You Use Matters</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Always use <a href="https://www.explainthatstuff.com/microfibercloths.html" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">microfiber cloths</span></a> when cleaning your car. It only takes a rough towel or dirt on a towel to scratch your precious paint job. Do not risk it and make sure you’re always using clean microfiber cloth to wipe your car with.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Invest In Dual Action Polisher</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Polishing is one of the most misunderstood paint care procedures and as a result many individuals skip this important step. Polish is an abrasive compound, which, when worked into the paint using the hand or a polisher, shaves off imperfections of the paint. It levels out the surface and makes it smooth, thereby preparing it for the next step of applying wax or paint sealant. If you wax without polishing the surface first, not only will the paint look dull, but you will also notice that the wax layer will wear off quicker than usual. So ultimately it is a huge waste of your time and resources. Because polish is abrasive, it is important to master polishing techniques especially if you are using a rotary buffer, or you risk burning right through the paint. Having said all that, take it up a notch and invest in a dual action while you’re at it. Perfect for ironing out areas of abrasion, and removing layers of old wax, these motorized polishers will ensure your car always has a smooth, even finish for a lasting just-bought shine.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Use Static Electricity On Carpets</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Carpets collect dust, dirt and other bits that can be difficult to remove even when using a vacuum. To loosen those bits up, wear latex glove and gently rub your hands across the surface of the carpet. This creates static that draw bits upwards and out of the fibers of the carpet making it easier for the vacuum to suck everything up.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Deodorize Your Vents Using Compressed Air</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If your car no longer has that new car scent, and you’ve tried a range of air freshening products without success, use a can of compressed air to give the vents a quick blast. Dust, dirt and moisture can build up on the inside of air vents, causing stale odors to circulate through the cabin whenever they’re in use. Compressed air will remove the offending muck, grime and bacteria, giving your car a fresher, more neutral smell.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"></div><div class="post-header" style="-webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: white; color: black; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 10.8px; font-style: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 1.6; margin: 0px 0px 1.5em; orphans: 2; text-align: start; text-decoration-color: initial; text-decoration-style: initial; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px;"><div class="post-header-line-1"></div></div><div class="post-body entry-content" id="post-body-2282690843702101435" itemprop="description articleBody" style="-webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: white; color: black; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 13.2px; font-style: normal; font-variant-caps: normal; font-variant-ligatures: normal; font-weight: 400; letter-spacing: normal; line-height: 1.4; orphans: 2; position: relative; text-align: start; text-decoration-color: initial; text-decoration-style: initial; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; width: 690px; word-spacing: 0px;"></div><br /><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="-webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: white; font: 22px Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; letter-spacing: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; orphans: 2; position: relative; text-align: center; text-decoration-color: initial; text-decoration-style: initial; text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; word-spacing: 0px;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/09/top-maintenance-tips-you-should-follow.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Top Maintenance Tips You Should Follow If You Want To Drive A Reliable Vehicle For A Long Time</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-22826908437021014352018-09-18T00:16:00.001-07:002018-09-18T00:16:43.768-07:00Top Maintenance Tips You Should Follow If You Want To Drive A Reliable Vehicle For A Long Time<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.sciencedaily.com/terms/allergen.htm" rel="nofollow"><img alt=" If you want to prolong your vehicle’s life, make sure you don’t fall behind these following car maintenance checklists" border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-Pb-QABW7ALU/W6CVaJ-QzBI/AAAAAAAACjE/ucTBxzhGqIMxVQrDX_NHh43fhPoV7CIZQCLcBGAs/s640/Top%2BMaintenance%2BTips%2BYou%2BShould%2BFollow%2BIf%2BYou%2BWant%2BTo%2BDrive%2BA%2BReliable%2BVehicle%2BFor%2BA%2BLong%2BTime.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Think car maintenance and car servicing are an unnecessary expenditure? Think again! Because by keeping your car in good running condition means not needing to buy a new ride after every couple of years, not spending money on major car repairs due to malfunction, and more importantly avoiding hospital and damage expenses in case of an accident because of malfunction too.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The more you keep its maintenance up-to-date the more your car’s condition is restored therefore prolonging its lifespan. With that, you’ll be able to enjoy your car longer than it would if you just let minor damages turn into unrepairable ones due to neglect.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Don’t let your car go!

If you don’t, it will result to difficult steering which can’t be good while driving. If your fluid level is low, you may have a leakage problem which will need to be reviewed at a <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">professional car servicing center</span></a> here at Singapore.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Check Out Car Engine</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">To keep powerful and extend engine life, make treatment of your engine. This added lubrication can keep your engine running smoother, providing greater damage protection than oil alone and extends the life of your car’s engine.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Exact Rotation Of Your Tires</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If you’re not sure about the recommended tire rotation interval, check your owner’s manual or you do it every other time you get an oil change. Doing this regularly promotes even tread wear and helps the tire perform as designed.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Keep Up Tire Pressure</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">This means they shouldn’t be overinflated nor underinflated. Otherwise they’ll wear out faster than they typically should and will affect vehicle handling and fuel economy. To avoid this, check your owner’s manual for recommended tire pressure and always stick to that. It’s best to check your tires’ pressure at least once a month but do it more often if you always go on long trips or you carry heavy loads all the time.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Be Careful Of Brakes</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">A vehicle’s braking system is a very important part a car. If they’re not in good condition it means you car’s ability to slow down or stop when you’re driving can be compromised. Moreover, your family, other motorists and your own safety could also be at risk! Don’t wait for that to happen before you realize the importance ensuring your brakes are always working properly. Once you notice, vibrations, strange sounds, or pulling, don’t ignore them and get it checked right away.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Regularly Change Oil</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Always consult your owner’s manual to know your car’s required oil change interval. Don’t just think it’s every 3,000 miles because it’s a standard. It differs for every car. Motor Oils Have Antioxidants. This antioxidants helps limit oxygen exposure for moving parts which could cause rust and corrosion. Therefore, forgoing oil change is actually putting your car at risk of damages. Aside from that, try to use only the grade, viscosity or weight of oil that is set for your particular car.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Replace Engine Coolant</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">In order to keep your engine running efficiently, engine coolant removes excess heat. It depends upon the type of coolant you purchase, most antifreeze or engine coolants can last from 30,000 – 50,000 miles, or about three years. You can check your engine’s level by locating the plastic coolant repository under your hood.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Replace Air Filter</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Okay, here’s the thing, your air filter’s job is to make sure you are breathing clean air as you drive. When the air filter itself becomes too dirty to function it puts your health to risk because it could pump your car full of dust and <a href="https://www.sciencedaily.com/terms/allergen.htm" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: red;">allergens</span></a>. This is why it’s important to change your filter every three months, as it also prevents airborne contaminants from being pulled into your car’s engine. Don’t worry it’s so simple you can easily do it yourself as long as you follow instructions on your owner’s manual, so no need to spend on car grooming services in Singapore.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h2 style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/09/top-9-car-transmission-red-flags-that.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Top 9 Car Transmission Red Flags That&nbsp;</span></a></span></h2><h2 style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/09/top-9-car-transmission-red-flags-that.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">You Should Address Right Away</span></a></span></h2></div>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-27707199237765865752018-09-06T00:10:00.000-07:002018-09-06T00:10:09.632-07:00Top 9 Car Transmission Red Flags That You Should Address Right Away<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.W5DNfegzZnI" target="_blank"><img alt="here are the shifting trouble signs that you should watch out for to avoid unnecessary car problem and expenses." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-acYXOhCygg0/W5DNJwz7KpI/AAAAAAAACi4/7hmYSNC8dWIVxMgWjsRAZfWeiU5Siw6iACLcBGAs/s640/Top%2B9%2BCar%2BTransmission%2BRed%2BFlags%2BThat%2BYou%2BShould%2BAddress%2BRight%2BAway.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;">Transmission is important in a car because it helps with changing gears and get from point A to point B without trudging along in first gear. So, obviously a car needs transmission, but what if you start having problems with it? And how do you determine that it is actually the problem?</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">As soon as you notice any sign that your car is not shifting the way it should, be sure to deal with it immediately. Waiting won’t help you save money nor make the car less problematic. Letting simple car problems go unattended lead to serious problems and bigger repair cost. So here are the shifting trouble signs that you should watch out for to avoid unnecessary car problem and expenses.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Check Engine Light Comes On</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">A warning light is just that, a signal telling you that something is wrong. But this doesn’t automatically confirm a specific problem on your car. However, if your warning light is on and you have noticed the rest of these symptoms on your car then that almost guarantees that your vehicle is having transmission problem. You should get it checked right away before it develops into a more serious transmission trouble.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Clunking, Humming, Or Whining</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Chunking or thudding sound when the car shift gears? Having difficulty reaching the proper speed? If it feels like your car is fighting you when you shift or it does shift but only after some struggle, you might wanna take your ride to a <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.W5DNfegzZnI" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repair</span></a> shop because this is not a problem you wanna have on the road.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. Shaking Or Grinding</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Your car shouldn’t shake or jerk, and you shouldn’t hear grinding. These are all indications of transmission trouble. With a manual transmission, the most common red flag is grinding when you shift. If it happens after you engage the clutch and shift, it could also be a sign of a faulty clutch.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>4. Noise In Neutral</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When you have low or dirty transmission fluid, your car usually creates this bumping sound when you’re in neutral. So when this happens, topping up the liquid should be the first thing you should do. If that didn’t help, it’s possible some parts in the transmission are already worn out.&nbsp; If this is the case, it’s best that you take your vehicle to the <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.W5DNfegzZnI" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car servicing</span></a> shop to get it checked and fixed.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>5. Hesitation</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When there’s a pause or delay before your car moves according to the action you made, like your car waits for a bit before going into drive and moving forward, that’s a problem. It’s not only frustrating but a driving hazard. If you experience this be sure to contact a car repair shop before you end up having to replace your transmission instead of simply fixing the existing one.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>6. Low Or Leaking Fluid</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Transmission fluid is clear red that comes with a slightly sweet smell. If you see this under your car, check for clogged filter or loose plug immediately. Because that’s the closest possible reason for the leak which is can be causing you to have a hard time shifting gears.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>7. Car Won’t Go Into Gear</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Check your fluid again. If this is happening, there’s a big chance you’re low on transmission fluid. If not, you could be looking at clutch problem, the shift cables or the computer system.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>8. Burning Smell</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Some car smells are perfectly normal, even if they're annoying. Other odors are definitely evidence of something wrong and one of those is burning smell! Pull over immediately and eliminate possibility of fire and then consider other causes. One of the most common causes of a burning smell is car transmission fluid that’s overheating. This happens when the fluid breaks down due to <a href="https://geology.com/articles/debris-flow/" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: red;">debris</span></a> and sludge. Dirty fluid isn’t going to keep your transmission parts cooled and lubricated so that they don’t become damaged, and if you allow your car to run with dirty fluid, you’re eventually going to end up with a bad transmission.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>9. Slipping Gears</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If your car changes gears on its own when you’re on manual transmission in a certain gear or it slides into neutral in an automatic, seek car repair right away. Don’t waste time doubting or risking it on the road. This is definitely a clear sight of car transmission problem.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/08/car-safety-features-that-will-give-you.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Car Safety Features That Will&nbsp;</span></a></h3><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/08/car-safety-features-that-will-give-you.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Give You Peace Of Mind While Driving</span></a></h3></div><div style="text-align: center;"></div>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-8265626239914949612018-08-27T00:36:00.000-07:002018-08-27T00:36:15.936-07:00Car Safety Features That Will Give You Peace Of Mind While Driving<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.W4OoSegzZnI" target="_blank"><img alt="aside from seatbelts and airbags which are great, you’d want these features in your vehicle for added security." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-qAOp8pQprUw/W4Onx-4jC7I/AAAAAAAACis/t43LkyYYbUAP9vz-TwYocVpXgOc13GB9ACLcBGAs/s640/Car%2BSafety%2BFeatures%2BThat%2BWill%2BGive%2BYou%2BPeace%2BOf%2BMind%2BWhile%2BDriving.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Driving doesn’t seem like a life-threatening activity because you’re essentially just going from one place to another. But even when you’re already at your destination and parking your car, an accident can still happen. Doesn’t matter if it’s a minor accident or not but the point is, as a car owner, you’d want to avoid it as much as possible. Not only because your life and others life can be put at risk but also because it may mean hefty car repair cost as well as other damages.

Think again! Because by keeping your car in good running condition means not needing to buy a new ride after every couple of years, not spending money on major car repairs due to malfunction, and more importantly avoiding hospital and damage expenses in case of an accident because of malfunction too.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The more you keep its maintenance up-to-date the more your car’s condition is restored therefore prolonging its lifespan.

If you want to prolong your vehicle’s life, make sure you don’t fall behind these following car maintenance checklists.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Change Power Steering Fluid</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Be sure to have the power steering fluid changed every 50,000 miles or three years. If you don’t, it will result to difficult steering which can’t be good while driving. If your fluid level is low, you may have a leakage problem which will need to be reviewed at a <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.W3onnOgzZnI" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">professional car servicing center</span></a> here at Singapore.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Check Out Car Engine</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">To keep powerful and extend engine life, make treatment of your engine. This added lubrication can keep your engine running smoother, providing greater damage protection than oil alone and extends the life of your car’s engine.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Exact Rotation Of Your Tires</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">If you’re not sure about the recommended tire rotation interval, check your owner’s manual or you do it every other time you get an oil change. Doing this regularly promotes even tread wear and helps the tire perform as designed.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Keep Up Tire Pressure</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">This means they shouldn’t be overinflated nor underinflated. Otherwise they’ll wear out faster than they typically should and will affect vehicle handling and fuel economy. To avoid this, check your owner’s manual for recommended tire pressure and always stick to that. It’s best to check your tires’ pressure at least once a month but do it more often if you always go on long trips or you carry heavy loads all the time.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Be Careful Of Brakes</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">A vehicle’s braking system is a very important part a car. If they’re not in good condition it means you car’s ability to slow down or stop when you’re driving can be compromised. Moreover, your family, other motorists and your own safety could also be at risk! Don’t wait for that to happen before you realize the importance ensuring your brakes are always working properly. Once you notice, vibrations, strange sounds, or pulling, don’t ignore them and get it checked right away.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Regularly Change Oil</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Always consult your owner’s manual to know your car’s required oil change interval. Don’t just think it’s every 3,000 miles because it’s a standard. It differs for every car. Motor Oils Have Antioxidants. This antioxidants helps limit oxygen exposure for moving parts which could cause rust and corrosion. Therefore, forgoing oil change is actually putting your car at risk of damages. Aside from that, try to use only the grade, viscosity or weight of oil that is set for your particular car.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Replace Engine Coolant</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">In order to keep your engine running efficiently, engine coolant removes excess heat. It depends upon the type of coolant you purchase, most antifreeze or engine coolants can last from 30,000 – 50,000 miles, or about three years. You can check your engine’s level by locating the plastic coolant repository under your hood.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>Replace Air Filter</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Okay, here’s the thing, your air filter’s job is to make sure you are breathing clean air as you drive. When the air filter itself becomes too dirty to function it puts your health to risk because it could pump your car full of dust and <a href="https://www.sciencedaily.com/terms/allergen.htm" rel="nofollow"><span style="color: red;">allergens</span></a>. This is why it’s important to change your filter every three months, as it also prevents airborne contaminants from being pulled into your car’s engine. Don’t worry it’s so simple you can easily do it yourself as long as you follow instructions on your owner’s manual, so no need to spend on car grooming services in Singapore.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/08/mistakes-you-probably-make-when-using.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Mistakes You Probably Make When Using Your Car AC That You Don’t Realize</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-49294196618978066952018-08-13T00:58:00.002-07:002018-08-13T00:58:30.570-07:00Mistakes You Probably Make When Using Your Car AC That You Don’t Realize<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.W3E5DOgzZnI" target="_blank"><img alt="To make sure you’re getting the most out of it, you might wanna avoid the following mistakes people often make when using their car air conditioning unit." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TrQ4bK8ReY8/W3E16JYXZvI/AAAAAAAACiU/Bc-bFvwUdOMWBtKGuOWrdCLyehpZP9tfACLcBGAs/s640/Mistakes%2BYou%2BProbably%2BMake%2BWhen%2BUsing%2BYour%2BCar%2BAC%2BThat%2BYou%2BDon%25E2%2580%2599t%2BRealize.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When you live in a tropical country, driving with your air condition unit running is must. That is unless you like driving uncomfortable and drenched in your own sweat. Just imagine your AC unit not working properly, everyone from the driver to the passengers in the car will suffer. So it should be among your car concerns to get to know your car air conditioning more. To make sure you’re getting the most out of it, you might wanna avoid the following mistakes people often make when using their car air conditioning unit.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Not Keeping AUTO On</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Many cars nowadays have an auto air re-circulation&nbsp;button on their climate controls. It’s best to leave this on to prevent buildup of fog and condensation in the windows that can hamper visibility. Keeping a set temperature and leaving the air conditioning in a mode that it can manage itself is the best way to keep the windows clear and still keep occupants cool. Adjust the temperature all you want, but keep that button on.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Hogging The Vents</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">People who live in the tropics knows how heavenly it feels when the cool air from the AC is blowing directly at you. However, doing this prevents the cool air from circulating throughout the interior properly. So it’s better to point the vents upwards for the cool air to circulate easier and faster.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Blasting It</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Instead of blasting the AC unit and wasting gas in attempt to cool down your car faster, do this trick instead. Roll down the passenger window and <a href="https://lifehacker.com/5823069/how-to-quickly-cool-down-your-cars-oven-like-interior" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">open and close the driver’s door</span></a> a handful of times.

With that, you’ll be able to enjoy your car longer than it would if you just let minor damages turn into unrepairable ones due to neglect. So, as with any part of a vehicle, may it be oil, tires, or brake fluid, the key to an efficient and effective A/C system is regular maintenance. If you don’t know how to do this yourself, you should get your AC checked every time you take your car for its regular maintenance.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Windows Down In The Morning</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Because it’s usually not that hot early in the morning, car owners tend to drive with their windows down before noon. However, it’s actually better to keep the windows up and turn the AC right away to regulate cabin temperature and prevent fogging up. This keeps you AC from working too hard to reach a comfortable temperature as the temperature outside rises.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/07/top-7-clever-travel-tips-if-you-take.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Top 7 Clever Travel Tips If You Take Your</span></a></h3><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/07/top-7-clever-travel-tips-if-you-take.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">&nbsp;Pets With You All The Time</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-91543268586836640382018-07-04T23:18:00.002-07:002018-07-04T23:18:32.458-07:00Top 7 Clever Travel Tips If You Take Your Pets With You All The Time<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.Wz20XNIzZnJ" target="_blank"><img alt="you have to be realistic and know that there are challenges when traveling with a canine.

However, despite the picture perfect idea, you have to be realistic and know that there are challenges when traveling with a canine. To lessen the stress and make sure you enjoy the ride, here are some tips that may come in handy.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Try To Find Out If Your Dog Is Up For It</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">To minimize stress as much as possible, it’d be best to do a dry run first. There are dogs that do fine even for their first time while others have trouble getting used to it though they’ve traveled&nbsp;with you before. So if you’re planning a long road trip, try to practice with your pet first. Short trips every day may help him ease up to it so that he’s more relaxed once you actually go on a long trip.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Prioritize Safety</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Letting the dog move freely inside the car may seem better but not when you’re on a long trip and you need to focus on driving. It could easily tire you out by constantly checking on him or keeping him calm and may put you both at risk of getting into an accident. You have to make sure you and your dog are safe throughout the ride. So better if you can fix him in one spot buckled up using dog-specific seat belts or put him at the back in his carrier. This way you know he is safe and you don’t get distracted while driving as well.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. Don’t Leave Your Dog Alone In The Car</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">It doesn’t matter if “you’ll be back in just a minute” or not. Don’t. Leave. Your. Dog. Alone. In. The. Car. This is especially when it’s really hot because a parked car outside can easily heat up in just a minute and leaving your dog in there could lead to <a href="https://www.thesprucepets.com/dogs-left-in-cars-risk-heatstroke-3385409" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">heat stroke.</span></a></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>4. Bring A Toy To Keep Them Busy</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">There are dogs who have anxiety issues or bark a lot, driving with either of them can be stressful and frustrating. But you can bring treats for them to chew or toys to play so that they have something to focus their attention to aside from the fact that they’re in the car travelling with you. Distracting them from the moving car helps soothe them so that you don’t have to worried sick the whole time.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>5. Know Which Establishments Are Dog-Friendly</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">It would be a lot easier for you to travel with your canine if you know which establishment in your destination and even along it are welcoming dogs. This keeps you from stopping a couple of times to look for a place that allow dogs inside when you just want to buy a snack or need to use the bathroom.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>6. Be Careful What You Feed Your Dog</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Always bring foods you know are safe for your four-legged travel buddy. This way you know you have something to feed him without running the risks of feeding him human food that’s actually toxic for him. Aside from that, if your dog has a tendency to jump on your food, make sure you keep it out of his reach to avoid any accidents.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>7. Put An ID Tag With Contact Information On Your Dog’s Collar</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">It’s a scary thought, but you have to be prepared for the worst case scenario. If you know you have to do a lot of stops, especially in a crowded place, know that it’s possible for the two of you to get separated from each other. But if you do this tip, in case your furry friend ever gets separated from you, it will be easier for anyone to return him back to you.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">You see, <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.Wz2zu9IzZnI" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repairs</span></a> aren’t the only headache-inducing thing that can happen when you’re traveling and kind of in the middle of nowhere. A scared or non-stop barking dog can be just as challenging. But being prepared and knowing what to do, especially during tricky situations, is always how you can overcome these bumps on the road.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/06/7-tips-to-drive-safely-during-night-time.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">7 Tips To Drive Safely During Night Time</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-42987333451267569052018-06-22T00:56:00.000-07:002018-06-22T01:08:59.721-07:007 Tips To Drive Safely During Night Time<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-12qVprrLwOU/WyyoIsNEk6I/AAAAAAAAChU/j2phtUbqdRA4c1BPyemk08J4jMUqrTyDQCLcBGAs/s1600/7%2BTips%2B%2BTo%2BDrive%2BSafely%2BDuring%2BNight%2BTime.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img alt="Here are some tips that will help you drive peacefully and safely at nighttime.

But if you know the right thing to do, you can live through its hazards and enjoy your quiet evening ride. Here are some tips that will help you drive peacefully and safely at nighttime.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Always Check If Your Headlamps Are Working Before You Drive</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Visibility is always important whenever you’re driving but even more so when you’re out at night when it already dark. So always check if your lights are working because they’re your primary source of light. Aside from that, your signal and tail lights will keep you visible on the road and help your communicate with other drivers. As soon as you notice your headlamps aren’t in good condition, take your car to <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.WyypeaczZnI" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car servicing</span></a> right away especially if the problem is not just the bulbs but in the electrical wirings.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Limit Your Speed</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Your headlamps can only cover a certain distance, so limiting your speed can give you more time to react to oncoming road hazards. As a general rule, it’s always better to drive slowly and carefully if you’re unfamiliar with the road that you’re taking.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. Clean Your Windshield</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">What’s the use of your headlamps if your windshield is keeping you from being able to see the road ahead of clearly? Your windshield is one of the important features of your car to ensure visibility on the road, so it’s a must that you keep it dirt and grime free.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>4. <a href="https://www.dmv.org/distracted-driving/three-types-of-distractions.php" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Reduce Driving Distractions</span></a></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Not only that this keeps your full attention in the road, which is always good for your safety, but it can also save you some <span style="color: red;">car repair</span>. Sometimes those little dents or scratches happens because you we’re checking a text message and missed the approaching car or the traffic light or the signal light of the car in front of you.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>5. Avoid Poorly Lit Roads</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">As much as you can, don’t pass roads that are barely lit. Even when your headlights are perfectly working, they can only cover certain distance like mentioned above. Animals coming out of nowhere, pedestrians, speed bumps and pothole may not be easily seen with just your headlights. So it’s always best to take well-lit route.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>6. Be Cautious Of Drunk Drivers</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">You may be a careful and responsible driver but others may not be. If you notice a car going too fast and being careless at night, it’s safer to assume that the driver behind the wheel is drunk. In this kind of situation, better avoid the car. Let it go ahead of you and allow ample distance between you.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>7. Maintain Your Vehicle</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Aside from <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/our-services/#.WyypYKczZnI" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car grooming</span></a> which is on high demand here in Singapore, you should also prioritize <span style="color: red;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.WyypeaczZnI" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">maintenance</span></a>.</span> If your car is also in good running condition all the time, you save yourself from surprise breakdowns on the road which can lead to accidents, especially on a dark road where you can’t see potential hazards that may aggravate the situation.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/06/top-9-causes-of-automobile-overheating.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">Top 9 Causes Of Automobile Overheating</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-39906239863347435332018-06-10T23:56:00.002-07:002018-06-10T23:56:28.169-07:00Top 9 Causes Of Automobile Overheating<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.Wx4YrEiFNnI" target="_blank"><img alt="Save yourself from the headache, bigger costs, and road risk.

However, overtime, drivers can become lazy that when it doesn’t seem like a big deal they just ignore. It’ll be fine for a while they will say. And because of these, many drivers end up dealing with a bigger damage on their car that would have been prevented if it was taken cared of earlier.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Like many things in life, 'you don't know what you got till it's gone'. So before your car overheats and end up in the car repair shop for a while and becomes too late to realize how much your life is so much easier with having your own ride, pay more attention when it’s already sending you SOS signals! Save yourself from the headache, bigger costs, and road risk. When you notice any of these bad symptoms in your car, get it fixed immediately.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>1. Fan Clutch</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">It’s easier to cool the engine when you’re driving because the air flows easily the radiator. So when it’s idle, your car has to rely on a fan to draw air through the radiator. This can be a problem if your car has a mechanically driven fan that can get worn out which fails to rotate at sufficient speed in order to draw enough air and cool the engine.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>2. Sensor</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Some cars have electrically powered fan that gets activated with the help of a temperature sensor to draw air to the radiator and cool the engine. So when the temperature reaches the sensor’s limit, the fan will be activated. However, like most sensors that can be defective over time, the fan may not work when your car is idle which can lead to overheated engine.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>3. Fan Shroud</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The fan shroud helps focus the air coming from the fan to the radiator in order to cool it much better. Now if this is damaged or the fan doesn’t have this, then the air just blows all over the place which lessens the air that the radiator gets. This then makes the engine overheat because there’s less air working to dissipate the heat.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>4. Obstructed Radiator</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">When dirt, bugs, or road grime gets stuck and accumulate in your radiator, it becomes harder for the air to flow through it. As a result, it’s harder to cool the engine especially when the vehicle is stopped and the radiator have to rely on just the fan to keep it cool which is why it overheats when idle.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>5. Internal Clogging</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If clogs outside the radiator is enough for your car to overheat, how much more when the obstruction is inside? Usually, this happen on the internal cooling tubes of the radiator where reduces the flow of the coolant. Combine that with your car in idle where only the fan trying to cool the engine and you could almost expect it to overheat every time. If you don’t want this to happen, send your vehicle to <a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/car-servicing/#.Wx4YrEiFNnI" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">car repair</span></a> right away.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>6. Leaks In The Cooling System</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Your car’s cooling system is what’s keeping it from overheating. So when the cooling system’s running condition becomes less ideal due to leaks then your car run the risk of overheating. This is why it’s always advised to fix even the smallest leak as soon as possible in order to avoid overheating and possibly an expensive car repair.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>7. Bad Thermostat</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Your thermostat is a key valve in the cooling system that ensures the coolant is able to pass through to the radiator when necessary. When the thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant can no longer pass through and becomes overheated in the engine.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>8. Loose Or Broken Belts</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">If a belt is loose or broken, specifically the water pump belt, it cannot help maintain the correct volume of coolant flow and can lead to overheating.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>9. Bad Water Pump</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Your vehicle’s water pump helps <a href="https://www.machinerylubrication.com/Read/841/coolant-fundamentals" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">propel engine coolant</span> </a>throughout the cooling system. So if the water pumps stops working properly due to things like erosion, leaks, or anything else, your car loses enough pressure operate the water pump properly which then can cause overheating.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>ALSO READ:</b></span></div><h3 class="post-title entry-title" itemprop="name" style="background-color: white; font-family: Arial, Tahoma, Helvetica, FreeSans, sans-serif; font-size: 22px; font-stretch: normal; font-variant-east-asian: normal; font-variant-numeric: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: normal; margin: 0.75em 0px 0px; position: relative; text-align: center;"><a href="http://autoinsider.me/2018/05/how-to-get-ready-for-road-trip-in-just.html" target="_blank"><span style="color: red;">How To Get Ready For A Road Trip In Just 10 Minutes!</span></a></h3>Revol Carz Makeoverhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/18205192646415222780noreply@blogger.com1tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3160134340485221453.post-56847433296234997082018-05-21T01:32:00.001-07:002018-05-21T01:32:42.337-07:00How To Get Ready For A Road Trip In Just 10 Minutes!<div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://www.revol.com.sg/" target="_blank"><img alt="here are some quick checks you can do to ensure your vehicle is actually ready to go." border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" height="360" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-JUtTgIWoxjM/WwKBSQ7jD4I/AAAAAAAACgw/RrPTGYEuf9AgKEEIaljd2QdVewghGlVLQCLcBGAs/s640/How%2BTo%2BGet%2BReady%2BFor%2BA%2BRoad%2BTrip%2BIn%2BJust%2B10%2BMinutes%2521.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Most people have experienced last minute road trip preparation because sometimes life can be crazy and schedule can be tight. While you may probably have packed your bags just fine, some people often forget to prepare the car for the trip which is more important because your car’s condition can make or break your actual road trip experience. So if you really running late and you only have 10 minutes left to spare, here are some quick checks you can do to ensure your vehicle is actually ready to go.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b><br /></b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Check All Fluids</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Clutch fluid, which is often the same with brake fluid, coolant, windshield wash and power steering fluid should be at appropriate level, especially if you’re going on a long ride. Otherwise you’d be risking accident or breakdown on the road.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Check All Hoses And Belts</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">A belt that fails can affect the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering as well as the cooling system. All of this can not only make your road trip less ideal but it can also jeopardize your safety on the road.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Check Your Tires</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Tires heat up and wears faster on long trips, add that to a hot weather and you’re a sure candidate for blowouts. So you better see to it that you’re not driving with really worn tires, if you are then replacing them before you leave is a must.</span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Check You Lights</b></span></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">Sit in your car, turn each light or signal and have someone see if they’re working or not. Don’t settle with blinking lights; if they’re not fully functional replace the bulbs. Don’t wait until it’s time to go before you do this because it takes time.
