Runflat Tyres Are-Safer

So what do runflat tyres actually do ?

In general, many of my customers complain. Especially, when they have to buy their first replacement runflat tyres. Customers, simply do not understand how these tyres have evolved during the past 10 years of car design. Consequently,its all linked with green house gasses and your cars emissions.

Runflat Tyres Are-Safer and also help to reduce the overall weight of your car. Of course, this is done by not having a spare wheel, jack or wheel brace. So, which reduces the overall weight of the car thus making your car more fuel efficient.

No spare wheel reduces weight

Runflat Tyres Are-Safer
Runflat Tyres Are-Safer;How run flat tyres work

Also the fact that you do not have a spare wheel gives you more space in the boot and as stated a lighter load. The runflat tyres are also made from less materials than the conventional tyres. Which also makes them more environmentally friendly.

As far as tyre performance is concerned the BMW Run Flat Tyres are just the same as the conventional tyres. Providing all the benefits of the modern performance tyres. Predominantly, the main difference is that when your car has a puncture while you are out driving.

Then the runflat tyre will not deflate giving your car normal handling and cornering. Therefore reducing the risk of an accident with other road users. So, in other words Runflat Tyres Are-Safer . This is especially important say if you were in the fast lane of the motorway when the puncture occurred. Your normal tyre would instantly deflate making your car very unstable and possibly causing a bad accident, in fact figures show that tyres cause a large percentage of motor related accidents, and the runflat tyres are a big improvement on the accident figures, enabling the driver to keep a straight line when a puncture occurs in one of the runflats. .

These new runflat tyres systems were originally created to keep drivers safe

Because punctures and blow-outs can be dangerous.Accounting  for a large majority of fatal accidents on the road. Apart from safety, a flat tyre can be a real inconvenience. Adding time and cost and sometimes embarrassment to your journey. Changing a tyre is fairly straightforward. But it often occurs at the most inopportune moment. Frighteningly, getting stuck on the side of a motorway.Especially, in the pouring rain with noisy kids in the back seat is really no fun at all! And trying to change a tyre on the hard shoulder can be dangerous in itself, or even impossible if you are disabled or elderly, in fact many drivers have to call out the rescue services to change the wheel for them,

But the drivers with runflat tyres and tpms systems do not have to put up with this

Of course, once the tyre warning light comes on in the cab, they can safely tootle home or carry on with their journey,(all be it at 50 mph, which is the recommended speed once you have a flat on your runflat tyres).

Runflat Tyres Are-Safer;Any vehicle fitted with runflat tyres

should also include a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) this will show you whether you tyre pressure has been lost, this is because without this the loss of pressure in your tyres will not be noticed

Runflat Tyres Are-Safer
Runflat Tyres Are-Safer;Tyres construction

Of course, Runflat tyres are meant to maintain there speed, handling and smoothness of driving. Particularly, when a puncture occurs. Indeed, even when driving on a motorway. A TPMS is essential to alert the driver to a loss in tyre pressure. To be sure it will indeed becoming part of the MOT test in the near future. Your TPMS works from either a sensor in your wheel , which is usually a special valve or from the cars ABS braking system.

Almost all of the Worlds leading tyre companies Bridgestone Run Flat Tyres make runflat tyres including Continental and Goodyear, cheap tyres can be bought online, but I recommend that you stick to the make that you have on the car at the moment or as a good cheaper alternative we recommend General  tyres.

Since first writing this post, the the runflat tyre has increased in the popularity of the car manufacturers.

However the public still begrudge paying for them. Consequently, these tyres are now fitted as original equipment to smaller car models. So, the problem start when the cars become second hand and start to need new tyres.

Fortunately,  runflat tyres are now available in “budget tyre” brands. One of the most popular tyre sizes is 205/55R16. Of course this is also a runflat tyre size as well as a conventional radial tyre size. Significantly, this size is available in several brands. Including, the 205/55R16 WINMAX EURUS63 91V RFT at £67 fitted. Chinese tyre manufacturer Jinyu also make the Jinyu YU63 economy runflat tyre range.

So these advancements have helped with the motoring expenses of the not so well off drivers with smaller cars.

There is no doubt now in my mind. hence that these runflat tyres are indeed a great safety feature. Especially when driving on our extremely congested motorway system. Only the other week a poor motorist had a tyre blowout on the M6 motorway. I know because I was caught up in the massive tailback.

Subsequently, it was a lady driver with a very flat tyre caught in the fast lane with a tyre blowout. She looked terrified as the traffic began to back up and during the vehicles recovery. So, I just could not help thinking that if she had runflat tyres fitted then she would have been able to limp the car off the motorway and home. Albeit at 50 MPH. Expressly, these tyres do save lives and get drivers home safely.

MOT Closure Killer Blow-MOT extension will have “huge impact” on independent garages, warns IGA

MOT Closure Killer Blow

MOT Closure Killer Blow

MOT Closure Killer Blow

There is no doubt that the Governments latest attack on the Coronavirus will make it very difficult for some small independent garages to remain open!  MOT Tests are the life blood of most garage enterprises since they were introduced in 1960.

Garages have evolved around the testing system. Because they are a legal commitment and we have to adhere to strict rules and legislation surrounding vehicle safety. Of course having to enable us to work everything else around the MOT system. In my opinion the government have just blown all our hard work in front of our faces.

From the first of April then all car and van tests will be extended for a six month period. In my opinion this is just a kick in the teeth to the safety of your vehicle.

I do only hope that no one has an accident due to the failure of something that would have been pickup up on the MOT test. I think this is a thoughtless act by yet another member of government that does not know what they are doing.

The attached article is well worth a read ?

Kia Clutch Failure-After examining the car needed a Duel-Mass Flywheel

Kia Clutch Failure

Kia Clutch Failure ;These days a clutch is not that simple

During any normal working week. We may get price inquiries for customers. Especially, with a Clutch Repair Estimates for their car. Some of our customers are just wanting a price from us so that they know

Kia Clutch Failure

Kia Clutch Failure;Duel mass flywheel

what to budget for.Hence, and other people are shopping around for the best price.

As a business we find it difficult to pitch the correct price. Because a Kia Clutch Failure is much different to say pricing up a tyre. The prices can vary a great deal. Between say the different qualities that garages use. We know that we could get reconditioned clutches for most car models.

But we prefer to use the best quality clutches available. Because many of the original equipment clutches are made LUK clutches . Therefore, we prefer to use them, As it happens, if we cannot get LUK then we go for original equipment clutches. We find that in the long run. We never get any come backs with the better products. Therefore, we certainly do not want to be having to do a clutch job twice.Because of a faulty product. Lifes to hard as it is.

Kia Clutch Failure

new Kia clutch installed by Andrew

Also we are finding that a lot of modern cars are now fitted with duel-mass flywheels, these were invented by LUK in coordination with BMW in Germany, because the diesel cars were very jumpy when changing gear and BMW wanted a smoother gear change.

Kia Clutch Failure

So this system of different springs on a separate flywheel that fitted between the original flywheel and the clutch plate was invented. Many of the other leading car makers have now taken this option up, but it means much higher repair bills for consumers when their Kia Clutch Failure happens, because usually the duel-mass flywheel goes as well, but we dont know until we have stripped the car down to the clutch. A case in point is a job that we have just done on a Kia. The total job timed at seven hours came to well over a thousand pounds, where an older conventional clutch would have been about £280.

This is the reason why it is difficult to give an exact figure when pricing up a clutch for a customer.

Bald Tyres Can KILL !

Bald Tyres-and Rain Soaked Roads = AQUAPLANING

Bald Tyres

Bald Tyres

Tyres like this are dangerous and presented to us on a fairly regular basis?

Bald Tyres-Change your tyres at 3 mm to avoid aquaplaning

As we all know, then this has been one of the wettest days of the year here in the UK. I say this because when I was driving along the M62 motorway I noticed that many parts of the motorway were flooded and had large areas of standing water. On all the carriageways. This meant one thing to me “AQUAPLANING”.

Unfortunately, we know in the tyre industry. That many motorists are putting off buying new replacement tyres. All our sales figures are down. So the mixture of bald tyres on these very wet roads is a disaster waiting to happen. As I am writing this blog some motorists will be experiencing aquaplaning when driving along the motorway at speed with no tread left on their tyres, as I say this is a disaster waiting to happen and it will happen, “mark my word”

What is aquaplaning on Bald Tyres ?

Bald Tyres

A glass road is used to film the tyres on test by the tyre manufacturing companies to test for aquaplaning. this picture shows the tyre from underneath as it drives over the flooded glass road.

Of course, aquaplaning is a word that became synonymous with a Goodyear Tyres advert in the 1970s. Now becoming a very important word.because of our changing climate and faster roads with increasing traffic numbers. Aquaplaning, means that your wheel loses contact with road surface. In affect, due to a thin layer of water between the tyre and the road surface.

The driver loses control of his car very often causing an accident. Certainly, a good tyre with more than 3 mm of remaining tread.Of course, will push the water away as the car drives through the water at speed.  Giving good grip and safer driving  conditions. All the leading  manufacturers design their tyres with aquaplaning (Driving in Wet Weather) as one of the main aspects of design.

Michelin  have even developed a system called “the anti-surf system” to enable their products to give maximum grip when going through areas of static water on the roads, this system is built into the Michelin Pilot sports 3. This tyre has also got added shoulder design to help push the water away and help delay the onset of aquaplaning.

There to stop your car !

Your brake pads are one of the most important part of your cars braking system. Because, they are the component that makes contact to the discs. Applying, the pressure and friction to your cars brake discs. Of course, this is the pressure and friction that is applied to the brake discs.

Slowing and stopping your vehicle. Once your brakes are applied. At this instance, the pressure from the master cylinder stops the wheels from turning and your vehicle stops. The role of How Brake Pads Work is really very simple, but the construction of the brake pads is not.

Did you know that Brake pads were once made out of asbestos !

So, asbestos was used to make brake pads. Especially, in my younger days when I was an apprentice mechanic. But because of the cancer causing materials in the pads. Urgently, then new compounds had to be developed. Nowadays brake pads are made from a mixture of different compounds. Including, metallic shavings or non-metallic, organic materials. Depending on the manufacturers own compound mixes.

The brake pads are compressed onto your brake discs when you press the brake pedal. The discs are fitted directly to the wheel hubs and the axle, on applying the brake pads friction is forced upon the disc causing the wheels to slow and then stop depending on the pressure applied to the pedal. The discs work in unison with the brake pads in order to stop your vehicle.

When will I need new brake pads or discs?

There are many different warning signs that your vehicle will give you before your brakes may reach the point of potential failure or extensive repair. The first thing to say is that you should always have your car regularly serviced, including your braking system. This will stop problems before they occur.

Here’s some other things that you should look out for.

Watch out for your brake warning light coming on when you are driving?

How Brake Pads Work

English: A set of EBC performance disk brake pads (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Check or have your garage check your brake fluid level?
Do you hear a grinding sound or a squealing sound when you apply the brake pedal?
Any feeling of a vibration or some sponginess in the brake pedal when it is pressed?
Does your vehicle steer or pull to one side when you apply your brakes?

All these symptoms are the most common signs that are a potential brake system hazard ! Problems and they should be looked at immediately. Of course, they have the potential to cause a lethal accident. Brakes are there to stop your car and they should not be treated lightly. In a word, if you have them inspected at regular intervals you will reduce the chances of future safety problems.

Exhaust Systems Explained-What does your Car Exhaust System (Muffler) DO ?

 Exhaust Systems Explained

To most of our customers, the exhaust system is just something that hangs underneath their car and when it breaks it makes a loud noise and costs a lot of money to replace. Well the

Exhaust Systems Explained

Exhaust Systems Explained; A van having a new exhaust system fitted in Halifax West Yorkshire

second part is true they do now cost a lot of money to replace, especially if you include the catalytic converter in with the price.

 

The first thing that your exhaust does is to transfer the gases produced by your engine from the front of the car (the engine) to the rear of the car, expelling the gases into the atmosphere. In the olden days pre-emission testing days, the gases were a high pollutant, but now because of the new car technology, cars produce far less toxic gases than they used to.

The exhaust system usually comprises of three or four different parts depending on the model and engine size of the car.

They start at the front of the car with the catalytic converter, which is connected via a normal piece of pipe to one or two silencer boxes and sometimes a piece of chrome pipe to add a finish as the exhaust system leaves the underneath of your car. The catalytic converter reduces the amount of CO2 gases that leave the engine, by filtering the gases through micro porous ceramic honey comb type structures, the emissions are monitored through lambda sensors that are screwed into the cat and send messages to the on board computer that all modern cars have.

The rest of the exhaust is pretty simple in comparison to the cat. The exhaust system boxes are filled with a fibreglass type material that quietens the sound made by the engine. In the USA, these are called “mufflers” because put simply they muffle or quieten the sound as it enters the box. Exhaust systems are probably one of the few things that differ in quality, a cheap exhaust system will probably only last for about 18 months, but a much better system say one that is made by a company called “Bosal” will last up to four times, because of the superior quality of the metals used in the making of the parts.

What can go wrong with your exhaust system? 

Exhaust Systems Explained

Exhaust Systems Explained; Bosal exhausts are one of the best

 

Well starting at the front, a big problem is from the gasket that bolts your exhaust system to the engine. This gasket can become worn and deteriorate because of the high temperature omitted by the engine. When this happens the noise will be deafening, but they are not usually difficult to fix. The next problem is just common old rust. The complete Car Exhaust system is attacked by rust from the day that the car hits the road. Also to add to this is salt, especially here in the UK where we use in Winter in great quantities. Eventually, the rust will attack the most vulnerable parts of the exhaust and a piece will fall off. Stainless steel exhaust system is the only cure for this problem but, they cost two or three times the price of mild steel systems in the first place, so they are not always a viable alternative.

Deadly Car Brake Pads

Car Brake Warning Lights-Dashboard Warning Lights can scare you to death?

Car Brake Warning Lights

Car Brake Warning Lights

Of course, almost all the modern cars today have a massive bank of warning lights. Including your Car Brake Warning Lights. Naturally, on the dash when you switch your ignition on to start your car. So, as the engine begins to pick up after a few seconds the dashboard  lights should have cleared. Modern technology and on-board computers have enabled car manufacturers. Hence, to connect almost every part of the modern car to some kind of warning lights.

This is for increased fuel efficiency and to enhance the car’s safety. Consequently, the car dash looks more like an airplane’s cockpit these days. Thankfully we have clever mechanics with computer soft-wear. At the same time, that can diagnose what these problems are should they arise. We at Pellon Auto-centre use a car diagnostic computer made by SUN Systems . So finding that it is a great machine for sorting out the light problems and resetting the  lights. Of course while  telling us what the underlying problem may be.

 Brake warning lights

Car Brake Warning Lights symbols look the same for most car models. But yours could be slightly different. Its purpose is to tell you that something is wrong with the braking system somewhere on the car. With this in mind, if this light comes on, check your owner’s manual to find out its meaning. So, as I say some cars have a different meaning. It could be used for many purposes. For example, the same light may be used to show that the hand-brake is left on. If that’s the case and you’re still driving, you would notice the smell of burning brake pads. The light can also indicate that the fluid in your brake master cylinder is getting low. Each manufacturer has a different use and standard for this light. In all cases if the light remains on you should take the car at once to your local auto centre and have the brakes checked out. For further information click the link bellow.


ABS Car Brake Warning Lights

Not all cars have ABS braking systems but they are becoming more common as the new cars are starting to come out. If you car has an ABS braking system, you will have a second type of warning light (as shown in the picture). If you see this light on you should seek immediate help from your garage or Auto-centre. This light is controlled by a computer and means that the computer has picked up a problem with the braking system. It could just be a simple thing such as dirty contacts on your braking components and sensors, or it could be that your ABS unit needs replacing, either way if this light comes on please take notice and have your car checked out as soon as possible. The may stay on, flash or blink but whatever it does seek attention, you may end up with no brakes at all.

Importantly as well as your brake warning lights, dont drive the car if the ENGINE WARNING LIGHTS happen to come on!

 

Independent Garage Car Servicing-Keeping the cost down by going for Menu Servicing

Independent Garage Car Servicing

Independent Garage Car Servicing avoids bigger bills later

Your car needs to undergo a regular check up to avoid future repairs. With the correct car servicing and maintenance, your car will last for several years longer.

Unipart Car Servicing
Triumph Dolomite Sprint rally car

When buying a brand new car, most car companies have car servicing special offers included with the car warranty. This is not always a good idea, you can take your car to the garage that you trust for your Car Servicing without it affecting your warranty. But you need to follow the car servicing maintenance schedule according to the service book, if this is not kept up to date your warranty will become void. You should not take for granted the care of your car. Us humans need a regular check up to the doctors while cars need regular servicing and check-ups from your local independent garage.

Unless you really cannot afford to pay for car servicing never do the car maintenance by yourself unless it is a minor maintenance and you have had some experience with cars. But if you have no experience at all, don’t risk ruining your car and just go to the nearest independent Car Servicing centre. Listed below are some maintenance procedures you should consider for taking care of your cars:

Some car servicing things to check regularly.

Regular Car Service – It is important that you follow the car service manual according to the exact mileage or time period. Try not to miss a service.

• Correct Oil Change of Engines – Oil change should be done once a year especially diesel engined cars. Changing your oil regularly ensures a long life for your engine using the correct oil.

• Check Fluid Levels – It is something that the car owner could do, but if you are not sure what to do your local Unipart service centre will do the checks for you. The essential fluids such as coolant fluid, Brake fluids, battery fluid, and transmission fluid should be checked and maintained on a regular basis, not forgetting your tyres.?

• Check your Tyres – Check the tyre pressure and look around your tyres for signs of cracking or any lumps or bumps, once again if you are in doubt ask the experts, they will be glad to help.

• Car Body Maintenance – You should also maintain the looks of your car. Check the minor parts such as side mirrors, headlights, bumper, doors, seats, and other parts of the car.

Many motorists decide that they would like to fit Continental tyres on to their vehicles. These tyres are a popular choice for those people who live in the wetter areas of the UK. This is because this is just one of the many good points that we bestow on the brand of tyre made by Continental  fitted to their vehicles as it has been proven to perform well in these weather conditions.

A large number of accidents that have resulted in personal injury. So. have  that happens when roads  are very wet and slippery. You’ll also find that road accidents are twice as likely to happen. Of course, on the wet road too . Including another important factor ! not to forget is that most of these vehicles will be running on bald tyres.

Because of these accidents. Drivers, tend to go for tyres that will keep them as safe as possible. Especially, during the bad weather. So, helping them to minimise the risk of being involved in an accident. It’s so important to make sure that you’re taking extra care. Especially, when driving in bad conditions Finding, that many people on the roads are driving. Consequently,without the correct tyres fitted to their vehicle.

Most people tend to think that the reason why driving in wet conditions

So, causes accidents. Because of the spray and through loss of visibility.Of course, the main danger is the risk of aquaplaning (Continental tyres are a great wet weather tyre). The cause for aquaplaning is a lair of water that forms between the tyre and the road and is then and this reduces your tyre’s grip and means that contact is lost with the road, the car could then go out of control causing an accident.

The way that Continental Tyres  have been designed. Of course, makes sure that they  perform to their best ability. Most importantly, when the weather outside is very wet. Tyres works is to disperse as much water away from the road as possible . So,by using centre drainage channels and having many water dispersing “sipes” therefore they will successful increase the grip on the wet road. You’ll find that aquaplaning with this brand  is at its minimal and dramatically decreased.

It still worth remembering though that your Continental Tyres must be in good condition with a good tread area, a bald tyre whatever the make will be dangerous on all road conditions.

Do not forget that the UK is traditionally a very wet country and also treats road safety as very important and although Continentals  are an excellent brand any new tyre will be a thousand times better in all driving conditions than a “bald” tyre. It is most important at all times of the year to have your tyres checked at regular intervals and always invest in a good make of tyres such as Continental tyres.

Air-Conditioning Time-Service your cars AIR-CON the weathers starting to warm up ?

Air-Conditioning Time; Air-Con was invented in 1939 in the USA

The weather here in the UK has now started to get warmer, and it is generally the Air-Conditioning Time of the year that motorists turn their air conditioning on and find that it isn’t

Air-Conditioning Time

Air-Conditioning Time; Portable Air Conditioning machine that we use on cars here in Halifax Yorkshire

working as good as they would like. Sometimes the won’t be getting cold, and sometimes there will be a musty sort of smell coming from the inside of the car. It is just not the same driving on a hot day with the windows wound down. You will probably find that your air-con needs to be re-gassed, or a more thorough service and inspection may be required.

Just out of interest, the first air con  system for the car

was invented back in 1939 by Packard, in America and was the first to be fitted in the factory in 1940. The first refrigerant used in air-con was thought to be  highly damaging to the atmosphere, and a safer gas was later used in the 1960s.

Most of our customers know that it is  Air-Conditioning Time choose again and choose to have their air conditioning serviced yearly. This will clean out all the dirt and germs that have built up in the course of time, it will also recharge the gas as necessary. The other option would be to leave your air-con until there is a drop in the air con temperature and performance. There is a risk of leaving your air-con until there is a problem, the problem may arise with the result in a bigger repair and a bigger bill. Either way, in between summers, you do still need to think about your air conditioning system, we recommend that you leave the air-con on all through the autumn and winter, this stops the gas pressure from falling.

Many motorists are under the impression that Air-Conditioning Time is just for hot weather. In fact, you will need to use it all year round, otherwise, it will be highly unlikely to be working properly on the hot days we do have, (as we are experiencing at the moment) In the colder months of winter, you can use your air- con system to warm the car, and it will also remove moisture from the air so that windows do not get misted up, this something that drivers do not know.

If your car is fitted with climate control it is often tempting on really hot days to turn the cold button as far down as it will go, but unless you are on a long journey, the chances are the system won’t be able to achieve the low temperature that you are looking for. Then when you exit the car, you feel like you’re stepping into a hot, steaming forest. Not very comfortable at all. You are much better off aiming for an in-car temperature of just a couple of degrees lower than the outside temperature. You will feel more comfortable in the car, and it won’t be such a shock when you get out of the car, (we have all been there, when we hire a car in say Spain and the inside of the car are nice and cool, then when we get out it’s like stepping into an oven), if you don’t have the inside temperature so cold then your body won’t get such a shock when you hit the heat.

Any bad smells coming from your air-con system should be checked

out by a good auto-centre as soon as possible, particularly if you or any of your family has any breathing problems such as asthma. It indicates that there are bacteria in the car’s air-con system (often caused by leaves going mouldy and blocking up the exterior vents in Autumn, so do remove any that you see there!) you can also smell the bad smell coming in from other cars, this is very common and nothing to worry about.

In the Halifax area of West Yorkshire, you can have your air-con serviced by experts.
