The truck has diverse systems that work in harmony to make it run. This makes the truck highly comparable to the human body. In order for a person to live well, all of the systems must be running smoothly. Just the same, the truck needs to have all of its systems operating in good condition. So if a person has the circulatory system, the truck has the engine and the ignition system. Since people eat, they need to digest what they consumed so that waste could be eliminated.
Kilowatts – A measurement of power. The more kilowatts, the more power – and in car speak this usually means greater speed. 1 kW = 1.341 bhp (brake horsepower).
Unfortunately, old age eventually comes regardless of what you do to hold it at bay. Auto parts fail and will need to be replaced. Below, I’ll give you a list of the components you can expect to replace down the road.
Does it smoke? With the engine running, take the oil fill cap off the valve cover. If smoke comes out, the rings or valves are shot and you need to leave now. It will be an expensive repair and perhaps a complete engine rebuild.
Your muffler is one of those parts you’re unlikely to think about until it fails. When it does, you’ll hear it. The problem is, a failing muffler can also be dangerous. If corrosion causes a breach or leak, fumes can escape. This exposes you and your passengers to harmful carbon monoxide gases.
If you have gotten the factory exhaust off, you are pretty much in the clear. You will install your Magnaflow system in the reverse order of taking the old one off. You can start by matching up the resonator section with the flange to the flange on the catalytic converter recyclers and bolting them together. They slip the connecting pipe into the resonator pipe and clamp it down with the supplied clamp. This piece also connects to the factory chassis mount you removed earlier. Be sure to secure the hangers into the rubber bushings.
Is the dash board messed up? (Other than the radio and speakers) Are things broken or are wires hanging out. Don’t buy the car. Electrical troubles are the worst!
Consider your vehicle an investment. You’ll need to replace parts as they fail. The key is to stay on top of regular maintenance items (i.e. check fluid levels, change the oil, replace filters, etc.) and have problems fixed quickly. By doing so, you’ll prevent small problems from turning into large repair bills.
