ORIGIN – In the 19th century, the gasoline portion of the refining process, was first considered to be a ‘waste’ product of extracting the purified crude oil. Later on, it was discovered that it could be $old as fuel, instead of just dumping it back in the hole as had been the tradition.
If you see a problem you might ask him if he has got an estimate on fixing it. Check for broken or badly scratched glass. Check for missing trim or dents.
Efficiency controls both horsepower and MPG. Efficiency is increased with a longer burn time, A.K.A. flame propagation, in the cylinder. Water vapor injection slows the burn time the same as paying a higher price for higher octane at the gas pump.
Finally, you need to check the engine compartment. You need to check the fluid levels. If the oil is dark colored it should be changed. If the automatic transmission fluid is not bright red the transmission is likely in bad shape. A major expense and not worth the time and trouble.
The first thing to do is to lift the car using a jack. Set the stands on all the corners of the car. Make sure that you set the car high so you can work comfortably and use the reciprocating saw. You have to wear protective glasses as well as ear plugs to protect your eyes and ears.
If you have gotten the factory exhaust off, you are pretty much in the clear. You will install your Magnaflow system in the reverse order of taking the old one off. You can start by matching up the resonator section with the flange to the flange on the catalytic converter recyclers and bolting them together. They slip the connecting pipe into the resonator pipe and clamp it down with the supplied clamp. This piece also connects to the factory chassis mount you removed earlier. Be sure to secure the hangers into the rubber bushings.
Burning fuel inside a car’s engine creates a lot of heat. Most of it has to be removed by a cooling system. Liquid cooling systems have a mixture of water and chemicals. A water pump forces this mixture to flow between the cylinders of the engine. The hot water is then pumped through a radiator where the air carries away the heat.
So, that’s the underneath check list for your new used car. After this, everywhere else to check is fairly easy to get to. Good luck in your search for a good used car. I hope these tips have been or will be helpful.
