Windshield Repairs in Jim Thorpe Pennsylvania
Your car's windshield is not like other, more mysterious car components. Although we do not give windshield a lot of thought, they are significantly vital.
Windshield glass is a type of laminated glass. They are assembled using a layering method. The outside layers are glass and the inner layer is a special laminate.
The laminate usually is made from a sort of vinyl plastic. The laminate acts as a sticking board for the inner and outer layer of glass. This serves to hold both of these layers together and provides a surface in case of shattering for glass fragments to adhere to.
Windshields installed in a manufacturing plant setting are done so with robots, in a tightly controlled manner. When carried out this way, the fit is very precise. Learn more about Jim Thorpe glass repair near me from your local repair professional.
Windshield repair is needed straight away if there is damage. Due to the specialized manufacturer's installation and testing, the most effective scenario is to keep the original glass in position. Provided the damage is minimal, like a small chip or crack, this is practical. A brand new windshield will be called for when the crack has become too large to repair or if the damage is in the field of visions of the driver.
If spotted early enough the bright side is that a basic chip or little crack can likely be mended by do-it-yourself methods. Even though this is an option, we still highly recommend that these basic patches be tackled by an auto glass repair shop.
Chip repair may seem like such a minimal issue, lots of people will dismiss it. Smaller chips that are overlooked can develop into large cracks. We see this in exterior temperature swings. If this occurs, you will be dealing with a windshield replacement instead of a basic chip repair.

Would A Cracked Header Cause A Car To Stall?
My Car Stalled Out Yesterday And Wouldn'T Start Back Up, I Towed It To A Mechanic And He Replaced My Fuel Filter (I'M Guessing There Was A Plug) And It Started Running, Ran Fine, I Got It Home. Turned It On Today And It Started Right Up, Bucked Up And Down The Driveway A Few Times And It Went Well, But I Then Took It Around The Block To See If It Was Really Actually Running Right Again... About 5 Minutes Into It It Stalled Again. But It Started Right Back Up And I Got It Home. I Found Out At The Mechanics Yesterday That I Have A Cracked Header And He Said That Was A Good Chunk Of My Problem Because It Is Throwing Off The Sensors. Would That Little Crack Really Cause My Car To Stall Out Like That? Also Is Seems The Only Time It Stalls Back Out Is When I'M Coming To A Stop.
I'm assuming you have a car that was built in the past 20 years (and thus using electronic engine management). If enough outside air gets sucked into an exhaust header through a big crack, the car should run perfectly fine while it's still cold but once your engine warms up and your computer goes into "closed-loop" mode, your O2 sensors will get fooled into thinking you're engine's running too lean and the computer will then tell your fuel injectors to send more gas into your engine than it should, ruining your gas mileage and performance and possibly causing it to stall. If that's the case, then the way to get your car running temporarily until you can get it to a mechanic would be to simply disconnect all your O2 sensors from the wiring. This will cause your engine computer to only use default "open-loop" settings for your air/fuel mixture which isn't very gas efficient (or environmentally friendly), and you will also get a "check engine" light warning on your dashboard, but the car will at least run reliably.
* If you think it might be a bad TCC, then when your engine starts to stumble and kick put it immediately in neutral. If the engine idles smoothly at the proper RPMs again once in neutral, then that would indicate a problem with the tranny and not the motor itself.

I Have A 92 4 Door Honda Accord. The Driver Window Only Rolls Down About 2 In. And Then Makes A Really Loud Grinding Noise. When I Roll It Back To The Top It Makes The Same Noise. My Brother Tried To Fix It, But Can'T Get The Door To Come Off All The Way. After He Tried, The Door Won'T Even Open From The Inside Anymore. How Much Will It Cost To Bring It Into The Shop? I'M Not Sure If It'S Off The Track, Or What It Needs.
umm. from 100-300$ i had the same issue and they charged me 285$ at a local private shop. the dealer wanted 850$. so shop around.
Is It Possible To Look Through The Front Window Of A Subway Car?
In A Nyc Subway, Is It Possible To Look Through The Front Window Without Being In The Driver'S Cab?
Yes you can, but it depends on which train you are on.
The old cars, from R-1 up to R-44, have half cabs, you could look through the window in the front door. The R-32, R-42, and R-44 are still in service, thought they won't last too much longer.
The cars with full width cabs like R-46, R-68, R-142, R-143, and R-160 the glass in the door between the cab and the rest of the car is completely blocked. In the late 70s on R-46s, that window was only painted half way up and if you were tall enough you could look out into the tunnel.
The R-62 were initially delivered with half cabs but are being converted to full width cabs, so you won't be able to look ahead in those for much longer.
Xr4ti Anyone Know Anything About This Car???
I Found A Old Xr4ti And Its All Orogional And Stock. I Heard These Were Great Fixer-Uper'S, Is This True? What Can I Expect Form This Car, Mechanic'S Of It, And How Hard Is It To Find Parts And Upgrades? Would It Be Worth It?
The cars were assembled and built entirely at and by Karmann Coachwerks in Rheine, Germany.
The XR4Ti was distinguished mechanically by its turbocharged Ford Lima 2.3 L 4-cylinder SOHC engine and independent rear suspension, and stylistically by its large bi-plane spoiler (a design theme shared by Ford's SVO Mustang). It came with either the C3 3-speed automatic transmission or the Ford Type 9, 5-speed manual transmission. Many felt it resembled the Ford Escort RS at the time, although the two were built on different platforms. Mechanically, it differed from the European model, which had a 2.9l Ford Cologne V6.
The XR4Ti was on Car and Driver's Ten Best list for 1985.
It has been suggested that Ford had planned to import South American-made Sierras to supplement its range before the cancellation of the Merkur brand in 1989, but this was not realized, nor the proposed plan actually confirmed. The XR4Ti sold for approx. US$18,750.00 and the Scorpio for just a little over US$21,250.00. Engines
The XR4Ti came with one engine, the 2.3 liter turbocharged, in-line, fuel injected 'Lima' four cylinder using an EEC-IV computer. The 4-cylinder engine was generally rated at 145 hp (108 kW) when mated with an automatic transmission (8 to 10 lbf/in² [55 to 70 kPa] boost), and 175 hp (130 kW) when matched with the 5-speed manual transmission (12 to 14 lb (6 kg). boost). This engine weighs a surprising 450 lb (204 kg). in full (turbo) trim. This is basically the same motor-setup as the SVO Mustang and the Thunderbird Turbo Coupe of the time. The SVO Mustang differed by having an intercooler.
The Scorpio came with a 2.9 liter six cylinder (similar to the Ford Bronco and Ranger)...
60-degree bank angle - V6
Multi-port electronic injection
144 hp (107 kW) @ 5500 rpm
162 lb·ft (220 N·m). of torque @ 3000 rpm
Compression ratio of 9.0:1
Engine management via the Ford EEC-IV onboard computer
Fuel required is minimum 87 octane gasoline
The XR4Ti options included heated seats, leather seats, power windows and mirrors, power door locks and a moonroof (retractable, tinted glass). Some were sold with crank windows and a solid roof but most came with everything but the leather seats. The Scorpio was optioned with very little (heated seats, 5-speed transmission). Most of the changes/upgrades from the 1988 year were simply standard features on the 1989.
The top speed of the Scorpio was 118 mph (190 km/h) and the XR4Ti 129 mph (208 km/h). Tests for the XR4Ti reported 0-60 mph times from 7 seconds flat when pushing redline and as high 7.9 seconds and 1/4 mile times at around 15.7 seconds.
