Steam Clean Everything!

Today i took a steam cleaner to a co workers floor mat trying out new things. Seeing what works and what didn’t, what i didn’t realize was how well it worked just by its self. Having the steam at the right temperature and going at the carpet with just steam then brush it out as i went it turned out better then i could have ever expected.

Steam is the new clean. Plastic, everything it works so well im going to post pictures and if anyone that views the blog calls in to book we will give you 50% off your detail!

Welding Thursday Away

Today we are working on a 2000 Subaru Forster. We are replacing the entire exhaust system and have come to hit a couple bumps in the road. This exhaust is designed to flex with the car as it moves, when someone had some a previous repair they just make the pipe a straight pipe and because the pipe had no give we had to thing of a way to make everything work. Our solution, change the curve of the flex pipe and have the flex pipe give the flex it needed. Simple repair and low cost.

 

Some times its smarted to repair the area needed then to replace. Its more cost effective and we believe you shouldnt have to replace the entire working line or pipe if its a small section to be replaced and it wont effect the quality of the vehicle we always recommend going ahead with the simple repairNashon Weld

Issues having your car pass emissions?

Here is what they check when you bring your car in for a E-Test.

Pre-test check

If the inspector finds any of the following issues, it must be corrected before the emissions test can continue, as it could lead to injury and/or the test equipment may not work properly:

  • missing catalytic converter and/or gas cap
  • defects in the fuel filler pipe
  • problems with the on-board computer system that would prevent the vehicle from being tested
  • visible smoke coming from the tailpipe
  • any problems the inspector believes would prevent the vehicle from being tested safely

You will receive a pre-test check rejection form, if the vehicle cannot be tested. You will need to return for the test, once any required repairs are made.

The actual test entails 

Hooking up device monitor to check if there are any codes reading pertaining to the emissions, you car will fail your e-test if that check engine light is on.

Then they hook up the tail pipe test to see if there is any leaks with your exhaust that could be dangerous to the public and environment.

What they don’t want you to know 

If your car is over 20 years old and your repair to get the test is over 300$ you could be lucky enough to get a conditional pass on your vehicle. They can give you, your slip with the information that its a conditional and you can get this years sticker.drive-clean

  1. If your car needs regular service get it done now. You do not want to break down on the 401 in below minus 10 weather on your way to your relative’s place. 
  2. Drive slowly when possible to navigate in difficult weather. 
  3. Check Brakes and adjust to ensure equal braking.

Brake Issues

Here are two pictures that will show you the difference between good brakes and bad. When a mechanic says your brake are seized this is what he means. The caliper on the brake that pulls your brake pad onto your rotor and when its rusted out like this it doesnt slide properly and that can cause many issues with your brakes. Here is a pictures of what a good one looks like on the left and what a bad one looks like on the right. your pinion has to be heated up to be able to release some rust for it to come out and that in its self could cause damage. thumbnail_image1

Snow is Here

While we were all trying to pretend the snow wasn’t going to come, it showed its face at rush hour traffic when no one in Toronto was expecting it, turning that 10 minute drive home into grid lock traffic for over an hour. All i could think about last night as all i could see ahead of me was brake lights and snow, was thank god i have my winter tires on, changed my brakes and new wipers!!

So don’t wait a minute longer thinking winter will go away if we don’t talk about it!

Winter is here and Dignity Auto is on your side!
