Auto Parts of the Future




Pages: 1 2

If you have ever worked under the hood of a car then chances are that you know the work can be dirty, confusing, and downright complicated. Unfortunately, working on cars has always been a specialty area of individuals, which is why many people choose to take their cars to a repair shop that they know about. But the main reason that automobiles are so dirty and complicated is because of the auto parts that are inside. Indeed, there are probably over a hundred intricate auto parts just underneath the hood of the car, and connecting them together in some way just makes the whole maze all that much more difficult. If you think that the auto parts industry will ever change, though, and us humans will have less to worry about the auto parts that we buy, then it just may be possible. Here are some ideas to turn in your head about the auto parts that you’re dealing with right now that could have a profound affect in your future:

Fewer Pieces

It may be very possible that the automobiles that we deal with in the future may have fewer pieces and auto parts to deal with than the automobiles that we currently have to deal with. Let’s face it: time equals money to most people, and most people dislike having to take their car to an auto repair shop or work countless hours on fixing one small problem within some of the smallest auto parts possible. The future of automobiles is definitely changing, though, and perhaps automobile manufacturers will make it so that the average person will have less to deal with when dealing with their auto parts .

Reliable Auto Parts

It may be too much of a good thing to ask for, but it’s very possible that the automobiles of the future may have more reliable auto parts placed in them. The current situation usually is that various auto parts within the car need to be replaced within five to seven years, but the automobiles that are currently being worked on for future production may have designs that allow them to keep their efficiency and be less dependent on the auto parts that they need to run. This may also just be wishful thinking, but we’ll eventually be able to find out!

No More Parts

Another option for the automobiles of the future is the capability of having no more auto parts within the actual cars themselves. There already are concept cars in production that have all the important engine components underneath the car in one small box, so it may be entirely possible that many of the auto parts that are currently needed to run a car just may disappear with the cars of the future. In this way, no one would ever

Auto Parts for Necessary Repairs




Pages: 1 2

Repairing your automobile can always cause certain headaches that are just not needed. Even though there are professional car repair shops that will help you repair your car, they will also charge a pretty penny for the work that they do. In fact, most of the time the price that people pay for car repairs in professional shops does not come from the auto parts themselves, but is the labor charges that have to be paid. One great alternative to professional car services that repair your automobile is to do it yourself. There are thousands of individuals who dislike taking their car to auto shops, which is the main reason that they do most of their repairs themselves. On the other hand, if you don’t mind getting a little dirty there are always simple options of repairing your car yourself. Here are some of the more common jobs that need to be done from time to time and the auto parts that you’ll need for them.

Changing Your Brakes

This is a project that usually has to be done at least every other year. Of course, it depends totally on the type of car you have as well as how old the car is that you’re driving. But brakes get worn down just as any of the other auto parts do, and they need changing from time to time. Before you start out on the journey to change your brakes, the first thing that you’ll need is the equipment. But how much do you need to change? Many people simply think that they’ll need only the brake pads; however, it’s important to consider how long one has been driving with their brakes worn down in the first place.

For a total brake change, the auto parts that one is going to need are the brake pads, discs, and calipers. Depending on whether or not the rotors are worn down also, you may need those. Also, most cars come with a set of brake shoe sets that you will need to replace as well as everything else on the list of auto parts that you’ll need.

Changing Oil and Fuel Filters

This is a whole other different job in itself and requires a different set of auto parts . Many professional auto repair shops will charge about $30 to perform an oil and oil filter change, and a fuel filter change costs about $50. However, one can do these jobs easily and simply by themselves with only paying for the auto parts . In order to change the oil filter the only thing that needs to be done is to buy the oil filter itself, which usually only costs around $5.00, and change it while you’re underneath the car changing your oil. On the other hand, the fuel filter is a little bit more expensive and the process is quite
