  • I put WD-40 into my scooter bearings and and now the back bearing when i spin it is making like crunching sounds and its squeaking plz help?

    Best answer: the bearings have a plating. if you hear grinding, that plating has bean compromised, replace bearing, pack w wheel bearing grease. generally the matted surface (hub race) will have also taken a hit. so to do this right, should replace the hub too. but i'd just replace the bearing itself and likely it will last... show more
    Best answer: the bearings have a plating. if you hear grinding, that plating has bean compromised, replace bearing, pack w wheel bearing grease. generally the matted surface (hub race) will have also taken a hit. so to do this right, should replace the hub too. but i'd just replace the bearing itself and likely it will last for quit some time. unless you can visually detect scoring of race. if it looks good, running your finger nail in the race, if you can, feeling ridges, can tell you what your eyes cant see. should be smooth surface. ridges, your done. need to replace hub as well. the bearing and hub in that instance will go away quickly.
    FYI,
    very important packing a bearing that you don't leave trapped air in it. air will expand faster than grease and force the grease out of the bearing. issue will repeat itself. you can take the bearing to any auto shop and they will pack it for you if needed.
    DO NOT use bicycle bearing oil. what ever that is. never heard of that. oil will run away from heat unless it's under pressure. wheel bearing grease is a must.

    good luck.

  • How to fix a car that won't turn on?

    Best answer: Try unplugging the mass air flow sensor. It is a small sensor which will be on the air induction hose, that is attached to the air box right where the air hose connects to the throttle body. They don't often cause a vehicle to not start, but they can. You will know if it is the culprit because as soon as you... show more

They don't often cause a vehicle to not start, but they can. You will know if it is the culprit because as soon as you unplug it, it will crank right up. But you will want to replace it as soon as possible. Driving without it can make your car perform less than top notch.

  • Should I do a complete transmission flush next time or not?

    I have a 2011 Toyota Corolla 1.8 VVTI engine. I bought the car back in 2016 with 84k. The transimission fluid was chocolate but I didn't have that burnt smell yet when I changed the fluid (which is good) should I do a complete flush next time since half of the fluid is still there?

  • Should I drive my car to the shop with a bad ignition coil?

    My brother says to bring the car to his job during his lunch break and he will fix it. He says it should be ok to drive (its 11 miles away) but I'm nervous it will damage something else. Should I take it there or wait for him to come to me?

    My front drive shaft or axial in my 1998 Ford Explorer got damaged recently, it is a four wheel drive . The mechanic told me that I can either remove the axial and the car will become a two wheel drive or I should repair the damaged axial. I want to save some money since repairing the axial will mean buying a new one so I am thinking of just removing it this will be cheaper. I don’t live in a winter state were it snows a lot, I live in California, so converting to two wheel drive will not cause skids. The question is will this hurt my car? Is this a bad idea? The transmission was build with a four wheel drive and it has been driven like that since 1998, please help me I know nothing about cars. Thanks in advance.
