Here are 5 Common Car Questions You’re Afraid to Ask.
#5 Why Do Signal Lights Blink Fast When They Burn Out?
When the signal light burns out, the bulb’s voltage decreases. This allows the circuit’s workload to be easier, which makes the light blink faster. This functions as both a reminder of how interesting science is as well as a reminder to fix your signal light.
#4 What’s the Difference Between a Turbocharger and a Supercharger?
Both the Supercharger and the Turbocharger engines are designed using compressed air systems that burn fuel faster, giving you access to more power. By connecting directly to the engine using a compression pump, the Supercharger offers more power consistently. However, this means that your engine will get less power at lower RPMs. The Turbocharged engine works using the gas from your exhaust to generate its power, allowing it to compress faster without having your RPMs redlined. But without a direct connect, you’ll experience the “turbo” lag that comes with it.
#3 How Often Should I Check My Tire Pressure?
According to your owner’s manual, you should check your tire pressure as often as you put gas in your car. We admit that does sound tedious and maybe a little overboard. It’s safe to check your tire pressure once a month. Keeping your tire pressure at the levels they need to be is a key component in maintaining your tire’s long-term health.
#2 When to Change my Transmission Fluid?
Experts say that you should change your transmission fluid approximately once every 50,000 km or 2 years, depending on which one comes first. The expert service staff at Edmonton BMW adhere to that notion, unless otherwise specified by BMW technicians.
#1 Premium or Regular Gas?
Premium gas does, in fact, helps your engine perform at optimal levels. Premium fuel has a higher octane level than regular gas. What a higher octane does is gives you a faster compression ratio that increases performance output and fuel efficiency. The only downside is that premium gas is more expensive than regular.
