Cleaning Spark plugs

First of all what is a spark plug? Spark plug is a device used in an internal combustion engine - that is, an engine that derives its power via exploding gases inside a combustion chamber -to ignite the air-fuel mixture. Time to time carbon builds up on the tip of the spark plug that delivers low mileage and can damage the whole engine. As factory advice it is a must to replace your spark plugs ever 100,000 miles.
It’s a must to check your spark plugs every 5000kms to your for any carbon build ups that can cause fluctuating rpm and poor combustions. Here are some steps on how to clean you spark plug.

Step1 Disconnect the spark cap or high tension wires

Step2 Remove spark plug( you will need a spark plug wrench) take fine grit sand paper or steel brush then brush the large threaded end of spark plug till you see silver metallic color.

Step3 Dip large threaded end of spark plug in bottle cap of gas/kerosene, then lay on nonflammable surface and light allow to burn out and cool this will get rid of all carbon build up on spark plug.

Step4 Check the gap of the tip of the plug using a feeler gauge, be sure to follow the correct gap specified by the manual. If you don’t have a gap gauge for the spark plug you can gap it with the skinny end of a butter knife be sure to use and old one for this can damage the knife.

Step5 Reinstall the spark plug to the motor. Be sure not to over tighten the plug to avoid loose threads.

Step6 Reconnect the spark plug cap or high tension wire. Start the motor then your good to go.

How to Get the Right Tires

Some tires are specifically designed for racing vehicles. When choosing what racing tires to choose, there are many variables one must consider. 

Racing tires are not designed for durability and comfort but rather, for performance and speed.  They are often changed after about 160.9 km, whereas regular street tires are built to last and may perform well for several years.

Racing tires are prohibited on regular roads or for normal driving purposes. This standard is not highly debated however, as racing tires are usually quite expensive and would be wasted on regular roads. In order to optimize performance at high speed, racing tires are usually thinner, somewhat lighter, and filled with low-moisture air or even nitrogen compounds. These features, while great for racing, are ill suited to regular driving.

Due to a high rate of accidents, many racing tires feature a unique accessory called a safety spare. This tubeless tire actually resides inside the main tire, ready to work in case of an emergency. In a case of tire blows out, the safety spare will allow a driver to return to the pit or, at the very least, get out of the way. In most official races, safety spares are a requirement, but in races under a mile, they may be an optional piece of equipment.

Racing tires are created and designed differently for different types of races. The track shape and track material are two deciding factors in what type of tires are needed. Dirt track racing tires feature more defined tread patterns than asphalt tires, and are often slightly larger in circumference. Tires for oval-shaped tracks are designed to perform differently than those built for freeform tracks or street racing.
Here are some tips on how to choose the right tire for your needs.

1.     Find a racing tire that is appropriate for your vehicle. Choose racing tires that not only add to the aesthetics of your car but also fit. Check your car manual or door inside for tire information. Choose tires ultimately for performance over looks. Change out racing tires more often than regular tires, especially if you race your car.

2.     Look for racing tires based on the type of driving you do. You will see that some racing tires are designed for straight drag racing, whereas others are designed to handle curves or sudden turns and different types of roads or terrain. Ask for advice when you buy racing tires and explain what kind of driving you will be doing the most.

3.     Racing tires are more expensive than regular tires, but you can buy and have them installed at a discount through local tire stores, such as Discount Tires. Look for the most reputable tire stores sell racing tires. Try to compare prices before you make a final purchase however.

4.     Check the manufactured date of the tire as a safety measure. Remember that using expired tires is not a safe option.

5.     Shop for and buy racing tires online usually they give better prices and freebies compared with local retailers.

Paint correction on vehicles

We vehicle users and owner sometimes neglect the condition of paint of our vehicles. We usually think that having a car wash and a wax is enough to protect our paint. But now a day’s people become more and more sophisticated on the look and class of their vehicle. Usually we just brought our vehicle to a detailer shop to rejuvenate the look and shine.

But actually we can do it by our self, with the proper tools, materials, knowledge and experience. We would like to share some of the knowledge on how to do it so that you yourself can have an experience and idea with regards to taking care of those stubborn paint defects.

Tools, we need to have the right proper tools for each job to have an outstanding result. Here are some needed tools; microfiber towels, brush, rotary buffer, bucket, wash mitts dual action polisher or random orbital polisher some pads and bottle sprayer.

Materials, we need to have proper materials as well so that we can tackle each defect efficiently. Materials needed are good car shampoo, clay bar, quick detailer, paint cleaner, compound, polishes, sealant and wax.

Now here are some steps on how to do it:

Wash the vehicle from top to bottom, use 2 bucket method as possible.

Rinse the vehicle

Inspect for paint surface of the vehicle, if you feel some rough spot, clay that area with a clay bar and clay lub, quick detailer.

Rinse again the vehicle and wipe it dry.
If the paint has some stain that has not been removed by the wash and clay, you might want to use paint cleaner. You can use the random orbit polisher or dual action polisher to apply and remove the paint cleaner using polishing pad.

Now wipe clean the whole vehicle and try to check the paint condition. If you see scratches or swirls try to check how deep it is. To check it, use a tooth pick. If the tip of the tooth pick cannot run across the scratch then that means the scratch went all over the top coat. This kind of scratches will not be removed unless repainted, but can be hidden or improved by a compound and polishes.

Now do a test spot. A test stop is needed to determine how to tackle the paint. Always use least abrasive compound and polish. You can use a rotary buffer or a dual action polisher. Normally if you do a test spot on a vehicle, after discovering the right technique on how to correct the defect, then the next step is to do it all over the vehicle.

After correcting the paint, you might want to protect it. You can use a paint sealant or a wax, or you can apply both for better protection. Be reminded that paint sealant has a curing period so you might want to wait till the paints sealant to cure before applying waxes.

You can do paint correction annually or depending on the condition of the paint. But usually it will depend on how you maintain and take care of your paint. A good car wax and proper materials and a clean environment will help a lot to preserve your vehicle and its finish.
We hope this article would be helpful not only to the enthusiast but also to owners and just users.
