I own a 2008 ES350 Lexus. For over two years the dealership has been telling me that the car needs CV boots and that it has lost oil around the bearings, and consequently the axles could break. I got a second opinion and was told that I will hear a noise at the wheels long before the axle breaks. Is this true? What should I do?
One of the most confusing seems to be the term cat-back system. It is actually a very straight forward idea, but the name may not be understood. As part of the exhaust system in most cars in America is a special device called a catalytic converter recycling. This device is designed to remove harmful chemicals in the exhaust steam, buy converting them to other less harmful products. The catalytic converter recyclers recycling or cat is required in all 50 states, and it is illegal to drive a car without one.
Never forget to check for any kind of tools, jumper cables, additives, or a spare tire mistakenly placed in the old car and forgotten as these tools and surplus can be sold seperately. Look beneath the seats for money or personal items. You should possess one copy of the car deed in order to save the vehicle, if stolen from being turned in.
Beginning from the front of the car, install the exhaust piece up and then put it onto the pipe in front of it. Don’t tighten it up all the way until you have all parts on.
So the term cat-back refers to all parts of the exhaust system between the outlet of the catalytic converter recycling converter or cat and the outside air. This usually means a series of pipes, one or more mufflers, and perhaps exhaust tips.
Do you know how you can really tell if your auto lift came from Texas? The lift support arms are double reinforced to handle the ten-ton Texan trucks that it will be lifting! That makes sense, right?
Your vehicle might be overheating if you smell a sweet smell and there is steam coming from the hood. If your vehicle is beginning to overheat you should drivego to the nearest gas station with a service center. If there is not a gas station near by, you should immediately pull to the side of the road. If the steam smells like metal and is coming from directly under the hood this means your vehicle is definitely overheating. If the smell is more like rotten eggs this could mean there is a problem with the vehicle catalytic converter or emissions system.
