 Using A Digital Multimeter Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

A digital multimeter is one the most versatile and useful instruments in your auto shop. It is important to own a good model and understand how to use it properly. A digital multimeter is actually three devices in one. It is a voltmeter that measure electrical potential across a device in volts. It is an ammeter that measures the amount of electric current through a device. This is measured in amps. Finally, a digital multimeter is an ohmmeter that measures electrical resistance of a device. Electrical resistance is measured in ohms.

Today, modern digital multimeters are designed to be rugged and easy to operate. A good multimeter will have a rugged plastic case and large, easy to use selector knobs. The top part contains the digital read out screen. This is something you should thoroughly check out before you purchase one. Make sure the screen is large enough to read it and make sure you see the readout in sunlight. Chances are you will be using this instrument outside in direct sunlight.

Below the digital readout is a large knob called the function switch. The function switch allows you to change the modes the digital multimeter operates in. For example, you can easily change from voltmeter to ammeter to ohmmeter with the turn of the dial. Again make sure the function switch is large and easy to operate Autel MaxiPRO MP808TS. Most function switches have approximately eight positions. Most have three V markings that measure voltage. They measure AC, DC and low voltage currents in the millivolt range. Next there will be two positions marked with A~ and A=. The A~ measures AC current in amps and the A= measures DC current in amps. The upside down horseshoe Ω measures resistance in ohms.

In order to measure voltage, first turn on the digital multimeter and let it go through its startup procedure. Generally the digital readout lights up and the unit goes through its self diagnostic checkout. Once that is completed you are ready to measure volts. Now turn the function switch to V= to measure DC volts. Now you will need to connect the red and black leads to the digital multimeter. Connect the red lead to the red input terminal labeled VΩ and connect the black lead to the terminal labeled COM for common terminal. Now you can measure volts by putting the red lead on the terminal with the higher potential and the black lead on the lower one.

To measure amps, the leads must be connected in a different fashion. First set the function switch to A= position. Connect the black lead to the COM terminal. Now you must connect the red lead to the terminal labeled 300mA. Now you are ready to connect the meter in series the device being measured by opening up the circuit and inserting the meter between the open points. The results will be in milliamps because you are using the 300mA terminal.

The third feature of a digital multimeter is its ability to measure to Ohms. Ohms is a measurement of resistance in an electrical circuit. First disconnect all wiring and power sources from the device being measured. Now turn the function switch to the Ω position and connect your leads. The red lead is connected to the terminal labeled VΩ and the black terminal connects to the COM terminal. The display will indicate OL. This is normal and means there is an overload. Now connect the leads across the device to measure the Ohms Autel MaxiDiag MD808.

These are the basic functions of a digital multimeter. Remember to shut off your multimeter before storing it back in the your toolbox. You do not want a drained battery the next time you will need it. There are several good brands on the market today. Fluke digital multimeters are probably the most popular and you won't go wrong with one.

 Used Volkswagen - A Great Investment Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

We'd all like to buy a new car straight off the production line, but unfortunately that just isn't always an option. It can be costly and difficult to finance a brand new car, and if you take out loans or pay in instalments Autel MaxiCOM MK808, you'll have the added problem of interest. Buying used can be a much cheaper option, and you can find some great cars on the market, especially if you're looking for a Used Volkswagen.

When it comes to buying a Used Volkswagen, there are endless options available. Whether you're after a small city run around or a large family estate, you're bound to find something which is in top condition and offers great value for money. There are several places to start looking for your Used Volkswagen. Individual sellers can be cheaper than dealers Autel MaxiTPMS PAD, but bear in mind that they can't give the same grantees that an approved dealer can. Not all individuals are reliable, and it's best to get the car and its history checked out by a third party.

Another way to pick-up some great deals is by buying from auction, which can be more reliable than going through an individual, although it's unlikely you'll be able to take your Used Volkswagen for a test spin before buying.

One of the best ways to buy a Used Volkswagen is through an approved Used Volkswagen dealer. Not only are they reputable and reliable, but they also offer a large range of cars to choose from, so you can be sure that the Used Volkswagen you drive away in is the perfect one for you.

Buying a Used Volkswagen from an official dealer means you're getting a car which is reliable and in a good working condition. Volkswagen inspect all cars and fix any problems found before selling them, which means you shouldn't be landed with any costly repairs after you sign. The Volkswagen team will also check the car's history and mileage, so you won't receive any nasty surprises. Not only that, but you can feel reassured by the warranty that comes with your vehicle, just in case any problems do occur.

Volkswagens are renowned for their build quality and reliability, and Used Volkswagens aren't any different. They might not come with that new car smell, but they certainly come with everything else you would expect from a Volkswagen, at only a fraction of the price.

Buying a Used Volkswagen is a great investment for the future, and with so much choice, you'll wonder why you ever wanted to buy new in the first place.

I personally have owned and driven a Used Volkswagen for a year or so now, so I can attest to the kind of quality and driveability that you get when you are handed the keys to one of these marvellous machines. With their robustness, sporty qualities and the other myriad of positive qualities, you can plainly see why they are so popular with the car buying public.

 Used Rolls Royce - Buying a Used Phantom Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

The new Phantom's have been described by Rolls-Royce as their car for the 21st Century. The name has been around since the early 20th century, having two series in Rolls 100 year history, but now they have updated the series for a modern market. Whether you're a fan of the brand or not, you can't help but admire the cars they produce. The Phantom's have several types which cater to certain purposes; the Phantom, Phantom Family, Phantom Coupe, and the Drop Head Coupe Autel MaxiSys MS906TS, each similar but all different. The Phantom Coupe for example is driver orientated, with all the classic proportions you would expect of a classic Rolls-Royce, which concentrates on giving the driver a pure Royce experience, whereas the Drop head Coupe is a more relaxed interpretation of the classic design Autel Maxisys MS908CV.

21st Century hasn't been taken to the extreme though, and Rolls-Royce still takes inspiration from the 20th Century. The Drophead Coupe pays homage to the classic J racing yachts of the 1930s, but Rolls has updated it for a motoring audience of today. In fact, the entire Phantom series is noticeable not just from the shapes, but from the coach doors.

You don't have to watch from afar to appreciate the cars, and you don't have to buy a Rolls Royce brand new to get to experience them first hand.

Used Rolls-Royce of all ages are available from all good online dealers, with the price dropping from its original price by around 65 percent within three years of being released. A Phantom for example, after three years can be obtained online for just £100,000 - £250,000. Although by any average standards this is not a cheap buy, it's a slashed price by half from their debut prices, and considering the history and reputation of the company behind them. Luxury isn't just a myth, it's a guarantee. The difference between a used Phantom and other models being sold used is that the quality isn't lost over time.

Some may not appreciate the shape of the cars. If you are for example not a fan of the classic design; short front overhang, long rear overhang and other familiar proportions, maybe because you prefer smaller and more rounded cars then this series may not be for you; they really have stayed true to their routes. But in terms of quality, most cars will begin to deteriorate within years of being bought, but when put together with as much care as they do at Rolls Royce, they are like new even if they have a large mileage, so long as they are looked after properly. Phantom over the years has been Rolls Royce main product, but this series of the iconic name is the first attempt at Phantom since they were taken over by BMW in 2003. The first Phantom wasn't as popular as later phantoms but it is still an amazing car. Buying a used car from the Phantom series, you can guarantee they will be in expected luxurious condition.

 Used Ford Explorer spa A Lot of Car For Your Money Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

With the current high cost of fuel, the gloomy economic future not to mention the whole global warming thing a used 4x4 might not be uppermost on your mind right now. The good news however is if for whatever reason you were thinking of buying one there are some absolute bargains to be had out there in the somewhat depressed world of the used 4x4.

When Ford introduced the Explorer to the UK in 1997 it must have been pretty confident that it would secure healthy sales. Not only was the car the world's bestselling 4x4 at the time but the market for luxury SUVs was positively booming especially in the UK.

However, some UK buyers were put off by the £25,000 price tag and rather heavy fuel consumption and as a result sales were rather disappointing to the extent that just four years later Ford stopped selling the Explorer in Britain.

A few years on and the demand for 4x4s has plummeted, but if you are in the market for a large luxurious vehicle then a used Ford Explorer has much to commend it.

The Explorer was only available with one engine, a 4 litre V6 petrol unit producing a hefty 208hp which was more than enough to power the 2,000kg vehicle from 0-60mph in less than 10seconds and on to a top speed of 100mph. The slight downside to that is that it does less than 20mpg which is not terribly encouraging.

The Explorer's main market has traditionally been America which again until recently would not have been the slightest bit bothered by such a thirst for fuel. As a result the US influenced styling is fairly evident in the round front end and generous seats. Rear legroom is on the tight side if the front seats are pushed right back but there is no shortage of shoulder room thanks to the vehicle's 6ft 5in width Autel MaxiSys MS906TS.

In terms of load carrying the Explorer is pretty hard to beat. There is a useful split rear tailgate that opens separately, similar to that on the Range Rover, which makes loading and unloading easy, and there's also a step built into the rear bumper that makes lifting luggage onto the roof bars fairly straight forward.

With a towing capacity of more than 2,500kg it will easily handle a standard caravan, trailer or horse box. Boot space is generous, and although the high ground clearance can make the leap a bit challenging for small or old dogs the optional rear dog guard is ideal for keeping man's best friend safely contained.

American buyers always demand a high level of standard equipment on their cars and UK buyers benefit from this. All models come with air-conditioning, cruise control, twin airbags, factory sunroof and remote central locking as standard and the XLT model has the addition of leather upholstery and heated front seats with electric adjustment.

On road the Ford Explorer is a surprisingly decent drive, and despite its size and weight generates fairly minimal body roll. The slightly dated rear leaf springs soak up bumps quite well and the robust traditional chassis gives the vehicle a strong feel, while nicely weighted power steering gives a reassuring drive.

Off road, Ford's "Control Trac" 4x4 system, switches automatically from rear-wheel drive to all-wheel drive as required, while a dash mounted switch allows you to select between high and low gear ratios when conditions require it.

With used prices now being so good the Ford Explorer is certainly a bargain alternative to the usual contenders from Mitsubishi, Land Rover and Jeep, but as with all older cars you will need to check the vehicle over carefully.

Spare parts are still easy to find at Ford dealers but they can be expensive, for example front wishbone ball joints are not cheap to replace, and be wary of dirty oil, which can often signal a block in the oil feed on the timing chain tensioner. Repairing this will result in a large bill. As with all older vehicles, items such as air-conditioning and electric seat motors need to be checked for performance.

The Ford Explorer may have received a lukewarm reception from British buyers when it was first launched but if you are looking for a big Autel MaxiTPMS PAD, comfortable, reasonably priced and well equipped 4x4 it certainly deserves a second look.

The Ford Explorer is a used 4x4 bargain at the moment as Jon Barlow discovers at Used Ford.

 Used Cars And Truck Deals Alerter l'administrateur Recommander à un ami Lien de l'article 

Used cars and trucks can save a buyer a ton of money. Your savings in the short run will be on the cost of the vehicle the taxes and depending on locality tabs and licensing. In the long run you will save on insurance and if you buy a vehicle with good ratings and a good resale value it will probably retain that value over the years and it all depends on the model or make of the vehicle.

When searching through classified ads or want ads the best car deals seem to be gone as soon as you make the call or it is already sold or has a deposit on it. It is best to get the paper as soon as it hits the newsstands and this could be in the early morning hours before most people are awake.

When searching for a vehicle it is a good idea to have a book value so you know what a fair market value is. Very few vehicles appreciate unless they are collectibles or antiques. If you know what the fair market value is you have a better position to bargain from. Many sellers when they advertise a car for sale already know what the value is. It is your responsibility as a buyer buying that used car to know the booked price. These prices can be found on the Internet or online databases or publications or books that specialize in market values of vehicles. Just visit you local book store or magazine stand. If you are really hard pressed for a book value you can always cal your bank and often they can give you a price Autel MaxiPRO MP808TS.

When out at used car dealer lots or checking out private sales it is best to have either a personal loan or know what your loan options are available. It can take the reassure off from a high pressure sales pitch as your signing paper work and a contract with a dealer. It pays to shop around on financing first instead of waiting to your only option and possibly ending up paying much higher interest rates on a loan. If your paying cash then the pressure is off and you also have a better bargaining position to negotiate a better deal on used cars.

When negotiating a price always start at about 25% less than the asking price or sticker price. If you know your book values or better yet have a publication with values and the seller scoffs then you have something to reference too Autel MaxiTPMS PAD. Things that can reduce the price of used trucks or cars are mileage, paint condition, cracked windshield, door dings and pain scratches. Funny engine noises should not be ignored. Strange smells in the car can indicate other problems such as water leaks. These are flaws or issues that can be used to reduce the price of used cars or trucks. Usually with a large laundry list a seller may be willing to reduce or come down to your price. If not just be firm and let them know that you are shopping give them your phone number and let them know that if they should change their mind within the next 24 hours to give you a call.

When searching for that special deal there are other sources to consider. Police auctions or government auctions can be a great source of cheap used cars, truck, SUV's, motorcycles and much more. May of these vehicles are procured by confiscation, recovery, surplus or have even just been abandoned. Bank reposes ions can be another cheap source your bank may even list these online or in a monthly newsletter.

There are advantages to buying a used car from a dealer or a private party. A reputable dealer will often inspect used cars and trucks and if they do not pass they are then sent off to auction or a bargain lot across town. Also with a dealer you may be able to negotiate a used extended car warranty at dealer cost into the deal. With a used car dealer though you will pay a little more for a vehicle in excellent condition as oppose to a private sale. Regardless of who buy a used car or truck form you should try to have a mechanic do an engine check or diagnostic test if time permits before you make that purchase. Your best deals though do not always allow you this freedom so if you know what to look for and what questions to ask you should increase you chances of getting an excellent used car deal.
