"Feathering" or "cupping" has little to do with wheel alignment.

Should be just the most important essential, you're not buying a new car here. Every car been used will definitely have faults.
Jojo siwas Hair line (13 дней назад)
Always start the car yourself and check the exhaust if it’s drippy they warmed it up so it wouldn’t show it’s sings if they try to start it for u and “pull it out “ of the spot walk away that instant

This guy shows exactly what you should look at when buying a car. If you're anything like me you definitely want to know that it hasn't had a wreck and isn't stolen. While this guy will tell you exactly what to look for you should definitely use Vin Check Pro for the paper details. https://bit.ly/2OrRY0N

twes619 (1 месяц назад)
I laid on the floor and looked under the car...I noticed some overspray on the front bumper. After many questions from me, the dealer came clean and said the radiator was replaced. I keep probing because the car made a weird noise when shifting from Park to drive... It was obviously in a front end collision. They almost got me! Also, run your fingers on all the edges of the panels, if it's rough, it was likely repainted by a body shop.

Look at the exhaust fumes. With engine warmed up, there should be none...just warm air. Any smoke or smell of burnt oil is bad, very bad. Also, ask for the proof of timing belt change. Don't take anyone's word for it. Broken belt will result in engine replacement. I stay away from cars with timing belts. I buy the ones with timing chains. Much more reliable.
Adam Smith (1 месяц назад)
James Ebola 1. Smoke doesn't always mean bad, it could just be steam (this is especially the case if you look at a car in the winter). Of course this is if the smoke is white, if it's blue or black something is wrong. 2. Not all engines are destroyed when the belt breaks, it depends on whether the engine is an interference or non interference engine. I do agree though Chain always better than belt.

All great tips but what I look for is good maintenance records. If an owner can show me that they followed the vehicle maintenance schedule then I know the car was well taken care of. I use a superb car maintenance and management software product www.lonewolf-software.com/automotivewolf.htm on my laptop that tracks the maintenance schedules on all 3 of my vehicles. It also creates a very detailed maintenance log that you can print out and show to any prospective buyers. I've sold several vehicles over the past 10 years very quickly this way.

u didn't mention to make sure the car drives in a straight line. or did i miss that part? also bringing a multimeter to check battery / alternator isn't a bad idea either, especially if your scantool doesn't have that info for u.
B N. (14 дней назад)
Definitely true but sometimes some roads are windy-swervy so it's hard unless you have a really good eye. Most dealerships in the south sell next to a highway just to drive and test it, but I know some that are also out of the way

Dennis Fortich Barro That isn't high at all, something like 350k Km I would consider high.
Winston Leighton (4 месяца назад)
Peter Timpson,, Most importantly make sure the engine did not have an history of overheating. Many times an overheating engine spewed coolant from the cap or overflow bottle leaving an obvious dry like stain . You may try to ascertain if the cylinder head gasket is warped. If not,,,, more important matters are there to know when buying a used car other than firewall rust.
Peter Timpson (4 месяца назад)
Today I looked at a 2002 Saturn L200 what iwould be the cause of the corrosion on the aluminum surfaces? It looks like hard water stains. Also, I noticed the same corrosion on the trans lines that are attached to the firewall. I hope to hear back from you. Great video.
Adam Smith (1 месяц назад)
Peter Timpson IDK but aluminum oxidation doesn't generally cause problems, it's rust you have to watch for.

Unscrew the oil filler cap and check underneath the cap itself for white (milky) gunge. This is a sign of water getting in, possible oil leak or head gasket issue.

1. Don't buy it at night 2. Check tires 3. Check transmission fluid 4. Check engine oil 5. Check brake fluid 6. Check belts, corrosion & rust 7. Check anti freeze 8. Obd2 ”0 diagnostic code” 9. Obd2 ”Readiness test" 10. Listen for any noises 11. Check online reviews 12. Call a parts store

My dad never thinks before he buys a used car. As long as it drives and doesn't make any noise he'll buy it and a few months later he'll have to sell it because he realizes something's wrong with it. He's subborn as hell too and won't listen to me when I try to tell him not to

If you can see the brake pads, when they are the same thickness as the metal plate, they need changing. When the tire tread is meeting Lincolns brow on a penny, they are about 50%.

How about checking all power options, windows, doors, sunroof, seats?? Make sure you check Ac system, even in the winter you should here the clutch engaging the compressor. The frame and rails, the rockers for rust and rot. Big issue with older north east cars. Make sure you check the gaps on the panels. Their is so much to look for. Basically if you don’t know what your doing, go with someone that does

Why isnt this stuff actually thought in high school instead of useless crap like algebra.
DarkGrayClouds (2 дня назад)
You probably don’t need algebra to flip burgers but you do in a real job
TJ Starr (4 дня назад)
What do you consider "advanced math" and "advanced sciences"? Is calculus advanced? Statistics? Trigonometry? Linear Algebra? Calculus and statistics come into almost every class in college, and a knowledge of statistics is useful for almost anything you do that involves chance and risk (should I invest in this company? What is the probability I get a certain return-on-investment?). Sciences come in handy in many parts of life, INCLUDING shop classes. Will water dissolve in antifreeze, or form its own separate bubble? How is the food we eat grown, and how does it reproduce? Also, saying we shouldn't be teaching evolution is idiotic. Evolution is the basis of all biology, and you can't even begin to understand how our messed up male genatalia develops for both waste disposal and reproduction without understanding where we came from. You want to understand how new viruses/bacteria evolve, and why using the same pesticides on a patch of land becomes less effective? You need to know evolution. Evolution is every bit a theory in the sense of the Theory of Universal Gravitation. It makes testable predictions that have been confirmed. So, I agree we should teach life skills in high school like personal finances and skills like electrical work, plumbing, and carpentry. But, we can work personal finances into algebra/calculus class (calculus for compound interest, understand the exponential function e, as well as series and sequences for calculating interest). I think teaching these would be a good thing, but let's not lower our standards by stopping teaching things like math and science. If anything, get rid of English/Literature. We don't need 12 years of school to write our own language. Only a few years of teaching, and you can learn to write a good, formal essay. And we don't need to know Shakespeare to survive.
