Windshield Repairs in Palmer Heights Pennsylvania
Many car components seem to be unexplainable for many. Nevertheless, your car's windshield shouldn't be classified in that group. Yet it seems to be plain in its use, however its significance can not be understated.
Many do know that windshields are created of multiple layers of glass. They are made up of 3 layers, two outer layers of composite glass and an inner laminate layer.
The middle layer of the windshields are is often made from a vinyl plastic element. In simple terms, it is a very strong plastic. This inside layer sticks to both outer layers. This serves to hold both of these layers together and provides a surface in the event of shattering for glass pieces to adhere to.
Original manufacturer's windshield placement is a highly automated and computer-controlled process in the production line of car assembly. Digital alignment and positioning procedures make certain that both molding and windshield are perfectly fitted. Learn more about Palmer Heights glass replacement from your local repair professional.
Damaged windshields are a safety hazard, therefore they need to be repaired as soon as there are any hints of damage. When feasible, it is always a good idea to have a repair done on the existing windshield, eradicating the need to replace it. Provided the damage is minimal, like a small chip or crack, this is entirely possible. This is not feasible if the crack has elongated, if the chip is in the car driver's field of view or the chip is bigger that a coin.
If detected early enough the bright side is that a basic chip or little crack can most likely be mended by DIY methods. We recognize that this is an enticing option for many. However, due to the safety concerns, we urge that even these kinds of basic repairs be addressed by an auto glass professional.
Some people challenge the value of a chip repair. However, if not dealt with swiftly, the issue can become worse.

Water Keeps Getting Inside My Truck Through An Opening On The Corner Of My Windshield, How Can I Fix This?
What Is The Name Of The Glue I Can Buy At Home Depot Or Auto Zone? Its Gets Real Loud From The Air Getting In When I'M Driving On The Freeway Too.
you better hope there is no rust damage. call a windsheld replacement specialist. If your window does not have too many rock chips they may be able to remove it replace and seal the old dried gasket Im assuming you have since you FORGOT TO MENTION THE YEAR of the car you have. the gasket around the windshiled dries with old age. buy a new gasket and pay some body who will give you a WARRANTY AGAINST LEAKS and this will solve your problem. There is nothing you can buy, no magic potions or special anything that works better than doing the job right in the first place.
your other choice is to live with the leak
Help Diagnose 2001 Pontiac Bonneville?
I Have Taken My Car To 5 Garages, 2X Autozone, And 2 Neighbor Mechanics. Everyone Tells Me Something Different. I Need Help To Diagnose What Is Wrong With My Car. I Stopped Just Throwing Parts On Til One Works Like I Did The Last Time When Something Was Wrong And Everyone Kept Telling Us Different Parts With Our Other Vehicle (Now Down With A Transmission Problem). Here'S Its History:
2001 Pontiac Bonneville V6 3.8 (Not Supercharged)
Bought 2 Years Ago
Battery And Fuse Box Under Back Seat
Since Bought, Some Lights Don'T Work On Heater/Radio. Climate Control Light Comes On Once In A While.
1 Yr Ago, All Brakes And Rotors Were Changed
1 Yr Ago, Oil Was Spitting Into Antifreeze. Head Gaskets Were Replaced.
1 Yr Ago Tried To Start After Stopping At Gas Station, Positive Post Fell Off Battery. Replaced Battery.
6 Months Ago Fuel Neck Replaced For Inspection
Sometimes, Faint [Maybe] Melting Wire Smell Outside Of Vehicle.
Sometimes, Oil Burning Smell Inside
5 Months Ago Fuse Box Under Back Seat Extremely Hot. Mechanic Referred Us To Dealer. Dealer Located Wires And Connections To Be Replaced In Fuse Box. Mechanic Fixed Everything With Fuse Box.
Few Days Later, Speedometer Light Was Out. Took It Back A Few Times Over The Past Few Months. Every Time It Rains Hard, It Seems To Get Wet And The Mechanic Takes Ground Off Under Back Seat, Wipes It Dry, Reattaches And Everything Seems Fine Until It Rains Again. Some Radio And/Or Heater Lights Don'T Work Either Way.
4 Wks Now Car Sputters When Starting About Every Other Time. Dies. Starts Right Back Up.
2 Wks Ago, Went To Gas Station Minutes From Home And When I Came Back, Antifreeze Was Bubbling. Thermostat Replaced.
2 Wks Ago, Got Stuck After 5 Mile Trip. Car Was Shut Off And Wouldn'T Start Again. Turned Over But Didn'T Start. Thought Low On Gas. Came Back Later, Added Gas, Started Right Up.
2 Days Ago, Oil Pressure Started Dropping And Battery Gauge Started Dropping Turned Off Car 10 Miles Away. Spent 15 Minutes In Destination. Car Would Not Start. Turned Over But Wouldn'T Start. Car Was Jumped And Made It Home.
This Week Took To Autozone. They Said The Alternator Is Bad. The Input Is Fine But The Output Is Really Low.
Talked To Mechanic Who Told Me To Disconnect Battery, Remove Grounds, Clean Them, Petroleum Jelly Them,And Reattach Them Tightly.
Went To Look For Grounds, Pulled Off Some Trim Pieces. Water Soaked Carpet Padding And Water Under Carpet On Driver Side Back Seat Floor.
Last Week, Put Dry Gas In A Full Tank
Check Engine Light Comes On Every Few Days And Goes Out On Its Own For A Couple Days. I Have A Odb Ii Code Computer I Bought At Some Point And The Codes Come Up P1441 And Another One That Says Evap System Error. Two Garages Have Told Me There Is A Very Small Evap Leak They Cannot Find. I Would Have To Find Someone Who Has A Smoke Machine But It'S Not Important. You Can Drive Around For Years Like That And It'S Only A Minor Issue.
My Brother Borrowed The Car Back In July And Ever Since My Anti-Lock Light Has Been On. Garage Checked And They Said It'S On Because The Evap Problem. My Brakes Now Need To Be Replaced So I'M Hoping When They Are Changed (I Have Them But Have An Infant So I Can'T Get Them On) The Light Will Go Out. I'Ve Had That Happen With Another Vehicle I Owned.
This Week Mechanic Found Leak Around Front Windshield On Driver Side. Told Us To Put Auto Caulking On It. Will Have To Rip Up Carpet And Find One At A Junk Yard If Possible
This Week, Took It To Mechanic For Fuel Filter Replacement And Oil Change (What He Said Was Wrong). Found Oil Pressure Sending Unit Is Leaking. Asked To See And He Showed Me. I Am Ordering One Online Tonight.
Yesterday Had Neighbor Jump It When It Wouldn'T Start And Sparks Flew And His Truck Shut Off. He Has A Toyota And It Kicked Some Breaker Type Thing They Have. Car Did Not Start. Let Sit 5 Minutes And It Started.
Today Took It To Scheduled Appt. With Garage We Usually To To. He Said It Was The Ignition. $300-$400 He Wants. Dome Light Stopped Working While He Was Looking At It (Stopped One Other Time When He Looked At It) And He Told Us We Are Missing A Relay But He Didn'T' Have One. Stopped At Autozone And The Guy Came Out And Looked And Said No Relay Is Missing. Car Wouldn'T Start. Waited 10 Minutes And It Started.
Every Garage Tells Us Something Different. Here Are The Things They 'Suggest' Are Wrong:
Post On Battery
Short Or Bad Ground
Here Is What It Is Still Doing. Starts After Sitting. Oil Pressure Goes Down During Driving, Expect Pressing On Gas (Probably Will Stop Once I Get That Oil Sending Unit). After Driving Even Five Miles, Car Will Not Start After Being Shut Off. Sometimes Sputters For About 30 Seconds Or Less And Dies. I Press Gas When It Sputters And Rpms Don'T Move And It Changes Nothing; Sputters Same As I
my goodness.you didnt mention mileage i will tell you the 3.8L motor is normally a good durable motor with few problems and is normally quitedependable to 200000 miles or more with just minor repairs. that said sounds like this cars quite the headache and your mechanics clueless. low voltage from a bad battery can cause the vehicles computers and electrical systoms to do all kinds of weird things.A bad battery <post fell off> probably did really overwork the alternator and low than high voltage could hurt the ignition switch and damqage electrical components. the fuel pump is supplied power through the oil ressure switch and if its leaking oil out it should be replaced immeadiately. If the oil sensor cracks you can can lose a lot of oil very quickly out it and ruin the motor. as well as a low reading from a bad sensor not allowing the fuel pump to stay running.replace oil sensor ASAP than head to the dealer Autozone is a parts store they can test some components and may have some fairly knowledgable staff but if youve got to find that your carpets soaked and and clean grounds repeatedly, that sounds like your <Garage> aint the greatest and your vehicle should actually be checked out by a knowledgeable mechanic.. By the way a small EVAP system leak or even an inoperable evap sytem with a huge hole in the gas tank will not disable your ABS system they are clueless. replace oil sensor charge battery overnight and try to get to a decent shop or preferably a dealership for further repair have them check the alternator first if its not putting out enough power have it replaced and go from there.
Are Car Dealers Required To Change The Tires And Windshield Wipers Of A Used Car Before Selling?
I Looking At Purchasing A Used Car From An Infiniti Dealer And The Only Thing I Don'T Like About It Is That The Tires Look A Bit Old And The Windshield Wipers Are A Bit Squeaky. I Heard From My Dad'S Friend That Car Dealers Are Required To Change The Tires/Windshield Wipers Of A Used Car Before Selling It. Is This True?
Your dad's friend is full of it, sorry.
Most dealers will do so, as it makes the car indeed more appealing for sale, but it's not "required". And the costs they incur for the replacements will be added in to the sale price somewhere.
**Add -- Again, TopFarce spews out his bile... I'll go over it one-by-one on his points that matter to the conversation:
"Maybe the dad bought a car in which the wipers and tires were bad and it dint pass inspection and the car lot had to change em." - And maybe he didn't... however, you seem to be clairvoyant in all of your answers.
"Many states require a car lot to warranty the vehicle to pass inspection." -- And the question was "do car lots HAVE to change tires/wipers before sale?" The answer is NO.
"Other states require via Implied Warranty Law that the car lot make the vehicle be fit for its purpose, reasonably safe, and have it priced w/in range of comparable vehicles." -- Funny that you spout this "Implied Warranty" garbage over and over, yet Implied Warranty laws were not fundamentally meant for vehicle sales in the first place... and those states that have them also have dealers that have the buyer SIGN A DOCUMENT that denies Implied Warranties.
"If the vehicle doesnt meet those standards, the buyer can return it for refund or repair." -- Yep, it's magic! And another assumption, I might add.
"Other states require the used car lot to offer the buyer the right to return the vehicle w/in 48 hrs for a refund." -- Wrong, chief. Only one state does this, California. And that "right" is a clause that is PURCHASED at point-of-sale. You make it sound as if it's an automatic law that gives every buyer this "right".
"So there are some instances where the dad could be right." -- I'm sure the dad is right in most instances, but not this one.
"And yes, Lemon Laws in some states do apply to used, and in some areas, used in private deals." -- Yep, true. But, you forget to mention that those that do all have the same caveats in place... the vehicle must still be under the original manufacturer's warranty. However, folks listen to the "1-800-Lemon-Law" commercials and assume... kind of like you.
TopFarce, you're a moron. I'm going to create a blog for each and every person that emails me telling me that you were wrong in their case. I'm building quite a collection.
Is Wintergreen Rubbing Alcohol Bad For Auto Glass?
I'M Just Curious, I Think There Might Be A Leak In The Seal Between The Car And The Windshiled Glass Because If I'M Cleaning Off My Windshield After A Rain Storm Has Passed I Can Smell The Normal Winshield Wash. Its Not A Pleasant Smell So I Was Wondering If I Added Some 50% Isopropyl Alcohol With Wintergreen To Make It Smell Better Would That Be So Bad?
We use alcohol to clean the glass at my manufacturing company that produces auto glass. the only problem with adding that to the window wash system would be the fact the alcohol will deteriorate the rubber hoses feeding the system and rust any metal parts that will be in the pump that distributes the system. It is OK to clean your glass with alcohol but I would not recommend putting it in your cars cleaning system
