THE TRIM TAPE HACK

Anyone who has tried to get double sided bodywork tape off car parts, such as exterior body mouldings, sill extensions etc, will know how tedious and time consuming it can be. Wouldn’t it be great if you could save the time, parts and the self-mutilation involved in removing double-sided body tape from automotive trim parts? Of course, you can buy dedicated sprays for this job, but they are often expensive and come in small cans?

MAINTAINING ELECTRICS – A NEGLECTED TASK

Keeping electrical woes at bay

Regular maintenance involves more than just periodically checking the coolant level and replacing a split wiper blade. Keeping a vehicle in a roadworthy condition means keeping an eye on everything that can deteriorate and acting in good time to prevent breakdowns and failures.

WHEN THE NEEDLE HEADS FOR THE RED

When the needle of the temperature gauge starts heading towards the red zone you know that it is time to act. Getting stuck in traffic can easily lead to the engine overheating. If you are lucky, the engine will not actually boil over this time but maybe the next! If the cooling system overheating is due to a problem that gets progressively worse, you tend not to notice that something is wrong until it is already too late.

FUEL SYSTEM CLEANERS

Do fuel systems really need to be cleaned?

You might be forgiven for thinking fuel systems no longer need any attention, after all, with modern refining technology fuels have never been so clean. The fuel system, however, is not a sealed system, nor is the engine itself. So, no matter how high quality the fuel is, deposits, gum and oxidisation build up over time. Oddly enough, modern fuels tend to absorb more moisture than older, conventional fuels.

BIZOL FRICTION MODIFIER+ O94 FEATURING NANOTECHNOLOGY

Do modern engines really need friction modifiers?

You might be forgiven for thinking that with the advent of high-tech oils and advances in materials and engine technology, the need for friction modifiers was a thing of the past. Surprisingly, the need for friction modifiers is actually increasing, not decreasing.

COPPER GREASE – TRIED AND TESTED OR OUTDATED AND OBSOLETE?

The short answer is that the range of applications for copper grease is diminishing, which doesn’t render it obsolete but means that it is losing its relevance in the workshop.

PRO CATALYTIC SYSTEM PROTECT+ P82 — FOR PROFESSIONAL RESULTS

The catalytic converter and other system components, such as the oxygen sensor need cleaning periodically. Vehicles that spend most of their time being driven around cities are prime candidates for building up deposits in the catalytic converter. Despite fuels being cleaner than ever, particulates from combustion still build up in the catalytic converter.

TRIPS AND TRICKS FROM THE WORKSHOP – THE UNDERSEAL HACK

Anyone who has tried to get encrusted underseal off car parts will know how tedious and time consuming it can be. Wouldn’t it be great if you could cut that particularly annoying corner and save yourself the arm-aching work and the self-mutilation involved in removing bitumen-based underseal?

AFTERTREATMENT SYSTEM CLEANER

Exhaust aftertreatment system maintenance

All filters need to be cleaned or replaced at some point. In the case of gasoline particulate filters (GPF), for instance, particulates from the combustion process build up over time, despite fuels being cleaner than ever before.

BIZOL Fuel-saving Tips

The current energy crisis is forcing people to find ways to reduce all forms of energy consumption, from turning down the heating at home, to making only essential journeys in their vehicles. If you rely on your own vehicle to get around, there are a number of ways to minimise fuel consumption. While some methods may seem obvious, it is surprising how often even simple methods are ignored when the price of energy is not concentrating everyone’s minds.

STOP COOLANT LEAKS — QUICKLY, EASILY AND EFFECTIVELY

A pool of fluid forming under the vehicle caused by a leaking coolant component is not a welcome sight. When the cooling system springs a leak, it can quickly become a danger to the engine, but if treated quickly need not cost a fortune to remedy.

STOPPING GEARBOX LEAKS, NOISE AND IMPROVING OVERALL FEEL AND PERFORMANCE

When you consider the sheer amount of loading that manual gearboxes have to deal with, it is astounding how smoothly they perform under all sorts of driving conditions. The transmission system has to handle constant load changes. The gearbox has to transmit power from the engine to the wheels when driving and then transfer the load from the wheels back through the gearbox to the engine on overrun, sending immense forces through the shafts and bearings each and every time.
