My Aunt teaches me to change a tire

This situation came up for me Saturday 27th of May. My aunt got into her parking lot and realized her car tire was flat. Why was this tire flat? She drove over a nail somehow. 

How to change a tire? 

  1. Find a safe flat location, thankfully we were in my aunt’s garage
  2. Turn on your hazard lights 
  3. Apply parking brake 
  4. Apply wheel wedges 
  5. Remove wheel hub cap and wheel covers. 
  6. Loosen the lug nuts, Lefty loosey! 
  7. Place jack under the vehicle, in our case, it was a Toyota 
  8. Unscrew lug nuts 
  9. remove the flat tire 
  10. Mount on the spare tire with lug nut bolts 
  11. Tighten the lug nuts
  12. Lower the vehicle and tighten again 
  13. Lower the vehicle completely
  14. Replace hubcap 
  15. Store all of your equipment 
  16. Check pressure in your tire 
  17. Take flat tire to Dignity auto repairs!

Summer time automotive maintenance tips

Summer time automotive maintenance tips.png

Hey Toronto, it is Ashton Deroy again writing for the Dignity Repairs blog. If you haven’t already, you need to be asking yourself. What should I look at in my transportation as we begin to turn from winter to spring and summer. 

Well here is some things you might be over looking: 

  1. Tire pressure changes – A warn down or misaligned tire can be extremely dangerous. To check your tire pressure use what is referred to as a penny trick on your tires. Heavily worn tread can cause dangerous driving condition. If you can see any part of the picture of the penny.You should replace your tires. 
  2. Change your oil – Every 7,500 miles your oil needs to be changed. Usually this time comes around the time of the change in seasons. 
  3. Check fluid levels – If the car happens to be your summer car and it has been in storage all winter. You should check transmission, power steering and differential.

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.
