Pros and cons of automatic transmission

automatic transmissionThe number of motorists who want to become the owner of a car with an automatic transmission, it is becoming more and more the matter is that love of comfort, endless traffic jams on city roads. Cars with automatic transmission are gaining more and more fans.

As mechanics say, faced with a huge number of faulty automatic transmissions (automatic), the vast majority of failures and defects in them are caused by improper use and delayed maintenance.

Automatic gearbox pros:

  • Driving comfort;
  • more benign operating conditions of the engine and chassis thanks to the torque converter;
  • Improved capability : Automatic gearbox allows you to move more smoothly

Automatic gearbox cons:

  • The efficiency of automatic is lower than that of manual transmission.
  • At other equal conditions (engine power and vehicle weight) of the car equipped with automatic transmission, for pick-up will yield to the vehicle having a manual in the asset.
  • Lower efficiency.
  • If you are a big fan of “quick start”, the automatic transmission is not exactly for you.
Ford has created a mobile wind tunnel.

Ford has created a mobile wind tunnel.

fordAcoustic comfort is a deciding factor choosing a new car. That is why Ford is imbued with the creation of a new tool, which helps to achieve a substantial reduction of the noise in the cabin.

First in the world mobile wind tunnel is an innovative patented system that can detect unwanted air noise sources in the early stages of new cars creation. With it, engineers can quickly identify problem areas and to find successful solutions, in the future it will provide owners with comfortable driving conditions. The creators plan to use different elements of Ford vehicles, such as Ford headlights, wheels, mirrors, windshield, steering kolesl and others.

The new mobile wind tunnel Ford was first tested at the factory in Flat Rock, Michigan, where to assess the comfort of the new car is already actively used by three other laboratory settings.

The ability to use a mobile wind tunnel to assess the quality of its products allows Ford maximum use of the main conduit in Allen Park to create a future car models.

Difference between synthetic oils and semi-synthetics.

Difference between synthetic oils and semi-synthetics.

Car owners often have a matter of choice of semi-synthetic and synthetic oils.

Synthetics can tolerate low temperatures and overheating, ensures safe operation of the engine in winter and summer, as retains the necessary viscosity performance under heavy load and operation at high speeds. Chemical resistance is the lack of response in the interaction of the oil, its properties for a long time do not change.

Semi-synthetics are more stable than mineral oils, but yield to synthetic s, but it should be preferred in certain circumstances. If a car is with significant mileage, it is necessary to fill in semi-synthetics, because synthetics give high carbon monoxide. Semi-synthetic oil should be changed more frequently. Compared with the semi-synthetics synthetics is not afraid of heat and cold. Longer keeps service properties, it protects the engine against wear. It change less frequently than synthetic one.
