A brake is a mechanical device that inhibits motion by absorbing energy from a moving system. It is used for slowing or stopping a moving vehicle, wheel, axle, or to prevent its motion, most often accomplished by means of friction. Background Most brakes commonly use friction between two surfaces pressed together to convert the kinetic energy of the moving object into heat, though other methods of energy conversion may be employed. For example, regenerative braking converts much [...]

Lead–acid battery

The lead–acid battery was invented in 1859 by French physicist Gaston Planté and is the oldest type of rechargeable battery. Despite having a very low energy-to-weight ratio and a low energy-to-volume ratio, its ability to supply high surge currents means that the cells have a relatively large power-to-weight ratio. These features, along with their low cost, make them attractive for use in motor vehicles to provide the high current required by automobile starter motors. As they are [...]

Automotive Batteries

By | 2019-01-08T14:25:35+00:00 December 8th, 2018|Auto Care in Wellington & Royal Palm Beach|Comments Off on Automotive Batteries

An automotive battery is a rechargeable battery that supplies electrical current to a motor vehicle. Its main purpose is to feed the starter, which starts the engine. Once the engine is running, power for the car's electrical systems is supplied by the alternator. Typically, starting discharges less than three percent of the battery capacity. For this reason, automotive batteries are designed to deliver maximum current for a short period of time. They are sometimes referred to as [...]

The "Bishop and Babcock Weather Conditioner" also incorporated a heater. Cars ordered with the new "Weather Conditioner" were shipped [...]

You’re stopped in traffic anytime in Florida outside of Winter. Sweat drips from your neck all the way down your back until your shirt absorbs it, making a damp spot between you and the seat. Your legs are either stuck to the vinyl upholstery or prickled by its cheap velvet. Your hands feel like they're about to slip off the steering wheel, and you're thankful your eyebrows are keeping the sweat from running into your eyes. Well, [...]

Why do I have to change my oil?

By | 2017-11-13T06:15:59+00:00 November 1st, 2017|Auto Care in Wellington & Royal Palm Beach, Auto Repair Tips and Information|Comments Off on Why do I have to change my oil?

Oil lubricates the moving parts of your engine. It keeps them cool by lowering friction and carrying the heat away. It also keeps any grit or tiny particles from scratching tightly-fitted parts. Heat breaks down oil and in this Florida weather it can happen faster than you are thinking. It can make the oil gummy or watery or possibly even both, so that it doesn't lubricate properly. The longer it's in the engine, the dirtier it [...]

My own opinions

By | 2017-11-13T06:25:13+00:00 January 9th, 2017|Auto Care in Wellington & Royal Palm Beach, Auto Repair Tips and Information|Comments Off on My own opinions

I've thought about the evolution of cars for some time. We all know that someday for whatever reason gasoline will go away. At first I thought hydrogen would emerge, but it hasn't really gained any appreciable interest from manufacturers or the public. With hybrids such as Prius and full electric cars like the Teslas, I worry about the perception of these cars. I think many people buy Priuses because they think they will save money or [...]
