I have just bought a used Isuzu I-Mark, and the first thing I did was to replace the tires because they were badly worn already. I want to know what I can do to keep my new tires working well for a long time. Can you give me some maintenance and care tips and suggestions for my tires?
The first thing to remember in order to preserve the life of your tires is to always inflate them properly when you drive. Under- or over-inflation of the tires is one of the most common causes of their premature wearing, so you need to take the time to regularly check the tires and ensure that they're properly inflated. You also need to rotate the tires every time you get an oil change. This is to balance the wear on the tires and lengthen their lifespan. Lastly, replace your tires when the season changes. Do not use your regular tires during winter, and vice versa. This is recommended not only to make the tires last longer but also to keep you safer on the road.
The windshield wipers in my vehicle won't work. I'm not sure what the problem is—one moment they're working well, and the next moment both wiper arms won't move when I switch the wipers on. Help!
If both of your wiper arms are dead, there are two most probable reasons behind this problem. You either have a damaged fuse or a damaged windshield wiper motor. To check the fuse, you first need to locate it. Your car manual will show you where the fuse is located. Once you find it, inspect it for possible corrosion, worn connection, or any other form of damage. If the fuse is in good condition, then you are most likely dealing with a windshield wiper motor that has gone beyond its operational lifespan. The best thing to do in this case is to get a new motor as a replacement.
The headlights in my Isuzu I-Mark appear hazy, and the beams they emit are no longer as strong as they used to be. Upon further checking, I realized that the problem has to do with the lenses. They have become dull after a long time of exposure to the outside elements. I don't have automotive experience, but I'd like to know if there's something that I can do to restore the lenses—something quick and easy and won't require automotive know-how.
Actually, you can restore the lenses without having to buy commercial automotive products. Many car owners attest to the effectiveness of simply brushing the surface of the lenses with a toothbrush and toothpaste. This will remove any dirt and grime on the lenses and restore their clarity, allowing all the light beams emitted by the bulbs to shine through and illuminate the road ahead of you. No matter what your skill level is in terms of automotive works, this is something you can do in just a few minutes—a great way to jumpstart your automotive DIY experience!
