New Opel Astra

The new Opel Astra in showrooms European dealers Opel five-door hatchback came the first new-generation Astra – a direct rival VW Golf. Since June, the car will officially imported to Russia. The new generation Astra radically new design. The old version was a low-key – just for buyers of mass car "Golf class", which is more important than reliability and practicality than design refinements. The latest machine will be different in the flow – through aggressive front end with a massive panel cladding, large air intakes and modern necklines dipped complicated structures – by the way, for the first time in the class "attached" to the steering wheel and illuminated corners. Entirely changed and filling machines – both technical and consumer.

New Astra – the main rival Volkswagen Golf fifth generation. Both machines are simultaneously available in the Frankfurt Motor Show in September last year. In Russelsheim, "Lair Opel, tried anything to keep up with rivals from Wolfsburg. We tried so hard, that in some ways even surpassed. For example, in the amount of luggage – 380 vs. 350 hp.

If we digress from the topic, you will notice that as it may seem strange, but Baggage volume today LADA is not inferior! As in the VW Golf, Opel Astra is introduced at 8 engines. This five petrol units capacity ranging from 1.4 to 2 liters and the capacity from 90 to 200 hp and three diesel engines from 1.7 to 1.9 liters, producing 80, 100 and 150 hp All motors meet environmental standards Euro 4, which come into force in 2006. Transmissions are 4, 5, and 6-speed manual, 4-step "automatic" and a proprietary 5-speed Easytronic. "Asters" Easytronic gearbox equipped with a system of HAS (Hill Start Assist). It makes better get a move on the rise, not fall back giving the car back. By request of HAS can be put on a version with manual gearbox. One of the main options for new items – the system IDS Plus, which manages and optimizes suspension driving performance cars. The machines will be a button with IDS Sport Switch, clicking on which the driver can change the behavior of the vehicle by activating the setting sports chassis and gearbox. The list of usual and additional equipment provided for the Astra, also includes adaptive bi-xenon headlamps, sensors checking tire pressure, heating Quickheat, preventing fogging of windows, automatic climate control with Air recirculation system, leather interior treatment, 6-disc CD-changer system with Twin Audio, resolving front and rear passengers to listen to diverse music at the same time, OnStar navigation system with voice control and other more conventional "convenient." There are 5 versions of all the car (basic, Elegance, Enjoy, Sport and Cosmo). Perhaps only to protect passengers Opel could not invent anything new. Although the arsenal of active and passive safety at the Car impressive, especially compared to previous-generation Astra. Passive safety of the supply strong power structure of the body with energy-absorbing portions, front and side airbags, Inflatable "curtains" that protect the heads of the passengers from side impacts, active front head restraints to protect the neck passenger terminals for standard child seat ISOFIX, injury-pedals and steering column. In case someone in the cabin lost sight of the buckle, provides audible and visual alarms. Active safety is ensured by now standard in today ESP, traction control, ABS, brake in Minsk City turns and the installation of emergency braking. In Europe, prices for new Astra will arise from 15 200. In this case the base Volkswagen Golf 5 more just symbolically – to 20.

What You Should Know About Car Batteries

Hundreds of thousands of vehicles from the Russian and foreign manufacturers every day countless furrowed trunk vast expanses of the former Soviet Union. Catch phrase from classical literature, "The car – not a luxury but a way movement "- not quite correct, as to the" iron horse "has always been a reliable means of transportation for many years, it requires careful maintenance. But it was the daily cleaning, the seasonal change of tires at the right time replacing windshield wipers and inspection stations in THOSE SERVICES. And also at the right time to replace worn parts with new ones. In fact, auto battery only requires a daily check the level of electrolyte.

If the level is low – it shows the over-charging, most likely caused by difektom generator. But if the lack of the electrolyte is observed only in one of the elements – this means that the battery Automobile survive their last few weeks. In warm weather it will still somehow but the first few frosts destroy it. Topping the car battery, it is imperative not to forget the one significant feature. The electrolyte level during charging slightly increases on the need to add something, taking this effect into account. What can make acid, once on body parts or the battery case, each perfectly known. Observant motorists occasionally (once every three months) check the batteries – the voltage at the terminals, as in not running and the engine is running. The same care should be taken so that the system electrical machines was not lost.

Filters Diesel Systems Diesel

The filter housing is usually placed underneath the vehicle, and the filter housing must be resistant to salt corrosion. Filters Diesel Systems Diesel fuel injection pump and is sucked through the swinging fine filter to the pump, high pressure regulator. At the bottom of the fuel pump is the primary filter for the detention of large dirt particles sizes. The filter element is located in a transparent casing, which also performs the function and dehumidified. Since the weight of water is greater than the weight of diesel fuel, then it is going and is visible at the bottom of a transparent body. Water must be disposed of in accordance with the instructions.

Finer filtration inherent 'Duplex' (double) filter, which has two filter elements, one for the detention of large particles, and another – for particles less than 2 microns – a thin filtration. Filter for diesel fuel is usually placed at the highest point in order to hold the air bubbles that prevent supply of diesel fuel into the system. To prevent this, you need to unscrew bolt at the top of the filter and let the air gathered. In some versions of fuel system is the automatic determination of the presence of water in the fuel; in achieving an acceptable level of water in the filter on dashboard warning light starts flashing. To reduce the possibility of condensation of water in the tank, we recommend completely fill the fuel tank at the end of the day or week, and the airspace above the fuel is minimal. The less air in the fuel tank, the less condensation may form. In the winter fuel suppliers offer a 'winter' diesel. A certain amount of fuel added to diesel fuel to reduce the possibility of the formation of paraffins (wax precipitation in the form of flakes).

The crystallization of paraffins at a temperature below-20oS or even higher, with chilly winds 20oS. The design of some filters heated components are installed and a thermostat that allows you to lower the temperature of the formation of paraffins. In the case of the formation of paraffins, it is necessary to replace all filters. Fuel filter element traps particles size from 5 to 10 microns.

Nevsky Filter

The plant "Nevsky Filter" – is a leading domestic manufacturer of automotive filters and filter elements for cars and trucks.

Movable Ram Hydraulic Automotive

Today, major manufacturers of automobiles began to make cars, change tires that need only two times per year: winter to summer and vice versa – it is easy to patch a puncture with special shawl or sealant. 99% motorists in that case just change the wheel. As if there were not, but without the jack going. when and what will happen to the wheel, unaware of any motorist. So always have a jack and the "spare tire" is a must. But jack jack – are different. And one turns the wheel assembly in the devil's torments, the other can be useful in an unpredictable situation.

take a look at what are the jacks, which one and how to use them properly. On the principle of actuation of the hoisting mechanism, they are divided into mechanical and hydraulic. Mechanical jacks – they all mans car coming off the conveyor car factories. Which, in turn, divided into parallelogram lever and or folding. Lever is now almost not produced or sold, and sold a great variety of folding. they are used to service the small vehicles, whose gross weight does not more than two tons. A relatively small load is compensated by the simplicity, small size and reliability.

For larger vehicles used hydraulic jacks. They are much stronger, however, and much more influential. Hydraulic jacks are also divided into two types – and telescopic lever or movable. The role of the first lifting mechanism is hydraulic piston mechanism directly, the other hydraulic cylinder pushes for lifting the lever, which in turn raises the car.

Disarming Ford

The new line consists of three systems – Lockus F1, Lockus F2 and Lockus F3, differing in the way of management and functional richness. Lockus alarm installed on the Ford Focus cars and various configurations can significantly increase possible full-time security equipment. Lockus F1 car alarm is recommended for installation in cars Ford, not equipped with full-time security package. Management system is four-button keyfob with a dynamic coded control signals. Car alarm Lockus F2 is recommended for installation in cars Ford Focus, equipped with the function of remote control central locking system (these machines are equipped with safety package 1, 4, or Number 5). Arming and Disarming is regular remote control car Ford (the system automatically determines when locking and unlocking central locking system, and thus will enable or disable the protection). The most powerful and functionally rich system in the new line is Lockus F3. This system is aimed at car owners the highest requirements for anti-theft equipment.

It is not just car alarm and a burglar and anti-theft complex. In fact, Lockus F3 combines the immobilizer and slave-signaling, and includes the most modern technologies used in the elite anti-theft systems, Black Bug. Lockus F3 is recommended for installation in cars Ford Focus, equipped with remote control function of the central locking. Enabling and disabling alarms are also carried out with the regular remote central locking. High level of protection against theft provides remotely controlled relay HOOK-UP. Number installed in the vehicle anti-theft devices are not restricted. Lockus F3 also provides protection against seizure, and in the critical situation of ownership does not require any action to lock the engine. In addition, Lockus F3 is protected from electronic intrusion of the second generation technology, DID, and the backup L-channel provides confident identification tag, even the presence of noise in the air.

The newest car alarms car full control and provide an electronic lock on the engine. Function provides confirmation disarm, which can insure owner in case of theft or full-time remote key fob Ford signaling (by the owner of the regime can be switched off only after clicking on a secret button and the electronic identification tags, or both).
