3 years agoEvery electric car needs a motor. Electric motors vary in shape and size, weight and price. They can use AC or DC electricity. A budget builder may choose to use an electric motor from an old forklift or elevator system. There are also lots of electric car-specific motors available for purchase alone or as part of a kit. You will need to choose a motor that will suit your needs for performance and budget.

overhaul a care engine Think what it would do for your budget, if instead, you spent only 10 or 15% of the cost of a new rig, (often less!) reworking your «Old Reliable» RV.

Parts cleaner and WD40 are your friends. When you get into the engine, cleanliness is definitely next to godliness. Cylinder walls must be as close to spotless as you can manage, with any specs of dirt & grit removed. To make things seal you’re going to need clean surfaces, so parts/brake cleaner, some Scotchbrite and a wire brush are vital. If something’s dirty, clean it well. If it’s clean, give it another clean to make sure it’s spotless. Similarly, once you get the head off the block, the clean surfaces you’ve got might want to rust pretty quickly depending on the humidity (my block developed a thin layer of rust in hours). Coat everything in WD40 and put a towel over the block to keep moisture out as much as possible. It will keep things lubricated and keep the rust away.

You should definitely bring your car in to be checked. Another common symptom is noticing a leak under your vehicle. Transmissions need fluid. The fluid that they hold is usually describes as a reddish color, but it might also look pink or black. You can add more fluid to the tank, but you should still have the problem checked.

If the engine has good compression but is hard starting usually what you have is a faulty carburetor or loose intake manifold. The vacuum leak caused by the loose intake manifold will cause the engine to only start when the choke is engaged. Tighten the intake manifold bolts.
