Inflate Tires To The Pressure Shown On The Tire's Sidewall.


Inflate tires to the pressure shown on the tire's sidewall.

- The pounds-per-square-inch figure on the side of the tire is the maximum pressure that the tire can safely hold, not the automaker's recommended pressure, which provides the best balance of braking, handling, gas mileage, and ride comfort.
- That figure is usually found on a doorjamb sticker, in the glove box, or on the fuel-filler door.
- Perform a monthly pressure check when tires are cold or after the car has been parked for a few hours.

Save the Mother Nature

Nature has provided us with the best possible things to make our life easy and wonderful! But are we really kind to Mother Nature??

With the increasing heat in the atmosphere, we are now facing the consequences of global warming. We are ultimately responsible for disturbing nature to such an extent and finally we would be in danger because of this.

Today, the level of pollution has been reached to such an extent that there is no doubt it will take our lives off if we let it grow like this. So, not for anything thing else, but for our own selves, it is our duty to save nature.

If we really want to save our nature, majorly we should focus on two things; limited and wise use of natural resources and maximum recirculation of the things. Things can be recycled right from carry bags to automobiles and its spare parts.

Now let us see in what ways you can recycle the things. Share every small idea here with all of us that will be beneficial ultimately to all of us…

Nature has provides us with everything! Rather we have made utmost use of natural things. But now it is time, we think far… if we really want to save our future.

Sources of energy must be used sparingly. In that case, why not we give a thought towards maximum recycling of the things? To start with, why can’t we think of using the used spares for our cars? It would definitely contribute in the recycling process and help us in SAVING…..saving not only the Money but also the natural resources… and ultimately, saving ourselves!!

A Stitch In Time Saves Nine

We all are very well versed with this proverb. But how many of us do actually follow it.

Some of us may not be using their cars very often. Some people, who stay very near to the workplace, prefer to walk rather than driving down the roads. But as you may be aware, keeping the cars simply idle for a long time is not advisable. It may charge you with unnecessary maintenance expenses.

If technology is at our doorstep, then why make it stale….just make Good Use of it!!!

Well, but some of us may be willing to drive but the car may be giving heavy expenditures due to one or the other reasons. In such cases, it’s a sincere advise to you….Prefer used spares for you cars. It would help you ease on your pockets and will at the same time give you the pleasure of driving and will give you a contented life.

Don’t keep your cars idle, instead get the car serviced at regular intervals and maintain it properly so that it is avoided from any future expenses.

Do you agree? Or you have something different to share?

Treasure Is Always Open… Just Explore!!!

I am the proud owner of one of the renowned water adventure sports club. I own a big fleet of boats with different types, makes and capacities. A powerful and high performing marine engine is the heart of any water sports activity.

I remember the day when all of a sudden one of my boat engines failed. I was literally stunned as I had no clue about what to do. With my experience till that day one thong was quite sure that seeking help from the wrong source will leave my pocket dried up. To keep on waiting for the right deal and to keep the boat idle was not feasible for my business.

Fortunately, one of my close friends, a marine engineer, happened to meet me. Being an expert in his field, I told him my reason to worry about. He told me about a place where I can get a authentic solution for my problem. It was a renowned salvage yard.

It was not merely a salvage yard, but it was like a treasure to explore for all automobile lovers. I found that they were offering some of the finest brands in the market for all the boating needs. They had GM Chevy, Ford, and Dodge Chrysler marine engines. Anybody can tell that these are the best names in American craftsmanship. Surprisingly, I also found the new 6.5 liter Diesel Engine for those who want pure power. There is no doubt that this beauty will blow you out of the water with its amazing power. On the top of all these engines were available at the lowest prices in the industry.

From that day onwards, I started dealing with those people regularly and with that I started growing my profits. If you also want to get the advantage like me, the treasure is always open… just explore!!!

Can a Salvage Yard be Like This?

Salvage Yard
The very first thought that came into my mind after entering that place was, ‘Can a salvage yard be like this?’

I saw many used cars kept for re-sell. But looking at them one could hardly believe that they were used. There were few cars standing in a line on one side. I really could not find out their make. Later I came to know that those were the cars with complete makeover. What an amazing work!!!

Further I noticed a big store where they were dealing in used automobile parts, used transmissions, used wheels, used engines and used accessories. You just name the part and that part was available there. All the parts were used but genuine OEM parts which were best in condition. Above all they were giving guarantee over purchases of these parts. You won’t believe if I tell you the prices at which one can buy this authentic used stuff.

I have made my choice my friends… What about you???

Save Yourself… Save Our Planet!!!

Today, in the year 2014, we, the residents of this planet earth have completely understood that with the growing population here, a day will arrive when this planet will be out of important resources. Growing garbage is yet another major question here. This will affect the living of all living beings badly. Perhaps that will be the end of life on earth. With this threat in mind, today, the scientists from all over the world are trying hard to find another planet to make a better place for living.

There are some countries like China that have adopted strict measures to arrest uncontrolled growth of population with the vision of controlled usage of the resources. Initially, it was seen as a better measure for keeping control over growing population. But then it ended up with complete imbalance in the proportion of youth of the country.

In past few years, we all have understood that ‘recycling’ is the only key to this disastrous problem. Now is the time when we should look more and more seriously towards recycling of the things. Savings in the resources will result in saving of life, and saving of life will result in saving our earth.

Do you know that like many other things, your car can be recycled? Yes! This option of saving our planet is very much open for all of us now. There are few authentic salvage yards where you can get this miracle done. Either you can have complete makeover of your old or damaged car or you can just sell your old car for a good price and buy another model that you desire at terrific low prices. Be assured that though these cars or the parts that will be used in makeover of your old car, are used; they are OEM parts that are best in conditions and proven for their intended performances. You will be benefited in terms of cost, quality and performance and you will be a helping hand to save the life here on this planet.

Can you tell me how you and our planet will be benefited with your wise decision of going for ‘used’???

Will It Be Right Decision?

Friends, Could you all help me taking a decision as regards my car maintenance, at this juncture?

My car met with an accident at cross roads and it is not totally but partially ruined. I don’t have so many bugs to make over my car with all new purchases. One of my friends suggested me of going to a genuine salvage yard or a used auto spares dealer and has guaranteed me with his own experience about their best services.

He also told me that these used parts, transmissions, engines and wheels etc. are genuine OEM parts which are damn good in condition and proven for their performances. Even we get warranty on the purchases.

The option sounds interesting where I can save my time, energy and money and still bring my car into its original working conditions.

Will it be my right decision if I opt for this? I would appreciate your suggestions at this point of time......
