Many cars have a thermostatic spring choke. Some are riveted in place and can only be overhauled by a mechanic, but if you have an older car and have trouble starting it in the morning, you may be able to adjust yours.
The typical floor-mounted utility grinding machine stands waist-high and is secured to the floor by bolts. The floor mounted utility grinding machine mounts two 12-inch-diameter by 2-inch-wide grinding abrasive wheels. The two wheel arrangement permits installing a coarse grain wheel for roughing purposes on one end of the shaft and a fine grain wheel for finishing purposes on the other end this saves the time that would be otherwise consumed in changing wheels.
A. REMOVAL OF THE FRONT SHOCK ABSORBER
(1) Jack up the front section of the vehicle and remove the front wheels.
(2) Loosen the two 10 mm nuts on the upper section of the shock absorber.
(3) When the above nuts are removed, the washer and the upper mounting rubber can be taken out easily.
(4) Remove the 10 mm nut at the connection to the trailing arm, remove the spring washer and washer and take down the shock absorber while pulling the lower mounting eye toward the operator.
In the following cases, remove the shock absorber from the vehicle and make the checks explained below.
(1) When considerable oil leakage is noticeable.
(2) When excessive vehicle vibration is felt and this vibration does not stop.
A. VISUAL CHECK
Check the shock absorber for the following points:
(a) Dents and scratches on the cylinder.
(b) Damages on the piston rod.
(c) Signs of oil leakages.
(d) Signs of damage on the rubber bushing mounting the shock absorber.
You can more clearly visualize how power flows through the drive train by following the flow of power through it. Figure A shows all the components as they are located on a vehicle with rear-wheel drive. If your vehicle has front-wheel drive, Figure B shows you the way the power flows through a transaxle.

It’s very important to check your radiator coolant level. Because another important fluid in your car is the coolant. Coolant is a mixture of antifreeze fluid and water that circulates throughout your car’s engine to remove excess heat. The coolant then circulates throughout he radiator where airflow cools the liquid before its journey back through the engine.
1. Raise the reservoir, then disconnect the return hose (A) to drain the reservoir. Take care not to spill the fluid on the body and parts. Wipe off any spilled fluid at once.
2. Connect a hose (B) of suitable diameter to the disconnected return hose, and put the hose end in a suitable container.
3. Start the engine, let it run at idle, and turn the steering wheel from lock-to-lock several times. When fluid stops running out of the hose, shut-off the engine. Discard the fluid.
4. Reinstall the return hose on the reservoir.
5. Fill the reservoir to the upper level line (C).
