Here are 10 steps you can take to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus:

1.#Stay_calm. Think carefully about how you can help your community and loved ones.

2.#Wash_your hands. A lot. Use soap and water for at least 20 seconds and wash often.

3.#Avoid_touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. This helps reduce the chances of you getting sick.

4.#Cover_your_nose and mouth when you sneeze. Make sure you use tissues and throw them away in a lined trash can.

5.#Stay_at_home if you’re sick. We want everyone to stay as healthy as possible.

6.If you believe you were exposed to COVID-19, or have a fever, cough, or shortness of breath, call your healthcare provider for help.

7.#Avoid_sharing_household items. This applies to cups, eating utensils, bedding, and towels.

8.#Disinfect_bjects and surfaces in your home and at work. Use an alcohol-based sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol

9.#Sleep_well. Your immune system is working best if you are well-rested.

10.#Get_vaccinated . Lets copy from Israel, when 90% of their population was vaccinated, Israel won the battle and as of now, they don't wear masks and economy is back to normal

It’s essential for a responsible vehicle owner to have basic knowledge and understanding about the vehicle he or she drives. Here are the most important car parts you should educate yourself about in case you run into some unexpected issues, or even worse, a .

The Battery
Without the battery, your car isn’t going to turn on. You may want to keep that in good condition.

Axles
Without them, your wheels wouldn’t be able to rotate.

Brakes
This is something you need to be very careful with. If your brakes start to squeak when you push down on the pedal, it may be time to get them replaced.

Pistons
Ideal, these should pump smoothly and quickly. They handle all gasoline explosions, so keep those in check. This is what determines your vehicle’s horsepower.

The Fuel Injector
This is what gets gas from your fuel tank into the engine. It is the carburetor’s successor.

The Radiator
The radiator keeps the engine from overheating. The coolant gives off heat into the air before going back into the engine to pick up more heat. If your car has overheating issues, the radiator is what is most likely at fault.

The AC Compressor
This is what puts the Freon into the air conditioning system, under high pressure, to then pass it down the line. Without this, your summer days are going to be hot.

The Clutch
The clutch is moved from gear to gear to keep you driving smoothly. It allows you to switch gears, and when you push down on the pedal, it allows transmission to keep running when the car is in neutral. Without the clutch, the car would stall.

The Engine Fan
These help keep air flowing over the radiator, which makes the cooling of the engine coolant process easier.

A Spare Tire
This isn’t technically a car part, but it should be common sense for you to keep one in your car at all times. Towing your car is never fun.

A Car Jack
Yes, once again… with a spare tire but no tools, the process may be a bit tricky.

Shock Absorbers
These help keep your wheels’ grip on the road, and help, well, absorb shock, to make your ride smoother. Shock absorbers are actually very important for many reasons, which we will discuss in Tips & Education.

Transmission
This turns power into movement. The energy generated by the engine is transmitted to the wheels and allows movement with the use of the transmission.

While water provides the best heat transfer, ethylene glycol is used in coolants to provide freeze protection as it has a higher boiling point than water. Because of this higher boiling point, it does not get vaporised easily inside the cooling system which can cause over-heating.
It is therefore an advisable solution to use coolant for your engine as opposed to using tap water.
Water can also rust if you park your vehicle for a long time, but coolant on the other side doesn't do that if you change it every 30,000km or less if you can. If you don't change it, it loses it's anti rust capabilities and becomes more dangerous to your engine as well.
We hope this helps. 🤝

Don’t Let Your Road Trip be a Turkey

One way to avoid a turkey of a road trip is to make sure the vehicle you will be driving is running well. A 10-minute pre-trip check is a quick and easy way to help avoid the inconvenience of a breakdown many miles away from home.

#asap_auto_parts suggests the following pre-trip check to help ensure safety and reliability on the road:

1. Check all fluids, including engine oil, power steering and brake and transmission, as well as windshield washer solvent and antifreeze/coolant.

2. Check the hoses and belts that can become loose, cracked, brittle, frayed or showing signs of excessive wear. These are critical to the proper functioning of the electrical system, air conditioning, power steering and the cooling system.

3. Check the tires, including tire pressure and tread. Uneven wear indicates a need for wheel alignment. Tires should also be checked for bulges and bald spots.

4. Check lighting to identify any problems with exterior and interior lighting as the chance of an accident increases if you can’t see or be seen.

5. Check wipers. Wiper blades should be replaced every six months. Make sure the windshield wipers are working properly and keep the reservoir filled with solvent.

“A pre-trip vehicle check provides peace of mind and Taking proper precautions provides an opportunity to have any repairs performed by one’s own trusted technician before hitting the road, reducing the chance of costly car trouble away from home.”

To save on fuel costs during the trip, the #asap_auto_parts suggests that motorists avoid aggressive driving, observe the speed limit and avoid excessive idling. Gas caps that are damaged, loose or missing should be replaced to prevent gas from spilling or evaporating. We also recommends that car owners restock their roadside emergency kit.

Have your car's brake system inspected annually, even if you don't suspect any problems. Not all problems are noticeable- don’t risk an accident from faulty brakes!

#When_To_Replace_The_Timing_Belt

When to replace the timing belt and how much will it cost that will depend on the car model and condition. Usually, it is recommended to change the belt between 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Also, if you happen to replace the water pump, it is recommended to get the timing belt changed as well and vice-versa.

Unfortunately, there are no particular signs which indicate the wearing out of the timing belt. However, your car might show some symptoms:

Loss of power
Poor fuel economy
Misfiring and engine vibration
Maybe timing belt noise
Belt tensioner may fail
A pulley may wear out

Moreover, when the timing belt starts to peel off, shows cracks, is softening or hardening, or has oil or water contamination, it is time to replace the belt.

If you wish to check the condition of your belt – press your fingernail against its back. If the impression is embossed, your belt can work for some more time. But if the belt has hardened, it will not allow the impression to be seen. Replacement is required immediately. Do not wait for the belt to break.

When a timing belt of an interference engine breaks, it causes damage to the valves and piston which might have gravely mutilate the engine. On the other hand, with a non-interference engine, a broken timing belt shuts down the engine completely. Without replacing it, the car won’t start.

If your car has a chain instead of a belt, replacement is not required unless very necessary as the latter is a maintenance-free unit.

How To Replace A Timing Belt?
If you have the right tools and skills, replacing a timing belt isn’t a difficult task. The harder parts could be the removal of the main engine pulley and set the accurate timing along with the new belt adjustment. Car manual has all the details which can help you in the replacement process.

Tools Required –

Belt tension gauge
Tensioner pulley and adjuster
Pulley tool handle

Once you have the tools and the repair manual, you are ready for the work.
The first step is to remove the timing belt –

Disconnect and keep away the negative battery cable

Remove the alternator belt

Remove the timing belt cover after taking off the accessory belts, hoses, or any other components covering it (Some cars may not have a timing belt cover)

You might also have to remove the cooling fan, power steering, or alternator

When the cover is removed, check the sensors, accessories or wires

Align the timing marks visible on the camshaft and crankshaft sprockets

The belt tensioner pulley will have the adjustment bolt – Slowly, loosen it or remove if required

Remove the bolts or screws which hold the timing cover

Now, remove the belt off the crankshaft sprocket

Remove the crankshaft pulley
Now, remove the timing belt from the vehicle
Install the new timing belt – alignment of the crankshaft and camshaft is very important when you install the timing belt. Check if the new belt is of the same length, width, and has the same tooth configuration as the old one.

Position the belt around the crankshaft sprocket
Install the crankshaft pulley
Align the crankshaft sprocket and pulley with the marks on the engine
Align the camshaft sprocket and the cylinder head
Thread the timing belt around the camshaft sprocket
Move the tensioner into the belt to apply pressure
Set proper tension
Reinstall the sensors or brackets you might have removed
Reinstall the timing belt cover
Reinstall the accessories you removed
Connect the negative battery cable to the battery
Start the engine to check if the belt is working

Yes, replacing the timing belt is an extremely complicated task, but you can seek help from experts if you aren’t ready to do it all by yourself. Do not wait for your engine to stop in the middle of the road. Keep a check on the timing belt and replace it when required.
