Here what we all need to know, what are you using the torque wench for and what part of the car, than body, motor, drive train, transmission,
here is my fathers rules of tighten things down in a car or truck or motorcycle, FINGER TIGHT.
any more than that mite be to tight and when it hot you may never get it off
when changing oil, new oil filter hand tight, that dont put muscles or hard grip or wrench on it, tight enough that it will not leak.
exception to the rule is when dealing with motors,transmissions, valve covers, rings, heads, crank shafts, starters, wheel bearings,bushings,

What is the torque setting for my alloy wheels?


Your torque spec is usually based off of lug diameter, if you have 19mm lug nuts then 75#ft should be sufficient.

Push button 4x4 not disengaging


If you have been driving in 4WD on hard surface then there will be torque wind up that has put pressure on the selector and gears and it will not slip out until the torque is released . Try driving with a set of tyres on a surface that allows the tyres to slip or jack up a wheel to allow the torque to go.

My tire pressure sensor will not turn off. It's


I believe your tire calls for 32PSI. Try to setting it to 36PSI and starting the car to see if it resets. If it does, you can let the extra air out. Sometimes a difference of 2-3 PSI from the set value won't reset it.

Some vehicles also require being driven at speeds above 40mph for about 15 minutes before the light will reset

I have a orange warning light flasing on my mini cooper 51 plate and i do0nt no wat it is can u help?? the symbol has a (!) on it? there is a button with the exact same symbol under my handbrake


This is the tyre pressure indicator. It shows that one of the tyres is losing pressure through a calve leak or puncture, or can also be triggered after you get new tyres or rotate the tyres.

The method to re-set the tyre pressure warning light is as follows:

Turn the ignition to position 2 (ignition on but motor not started). Press and hold the button under the handbrake until the warning light on the dashboard comes on for several seconds. Start the engine. Drive the car normally for several minutes. This will cause the system to re-set to the current tyres and pressures you have. It will then only turn the warning light on if the pressures change - for example if you get a puncture.

Im stationed overseas and my grandmother has a 2003 santa fe 6cyl. she is getting bad tire wear. could this just be a front end alignment and how much should it cost to repair


Brad

1. It's hard to say without looking at the vehicle (and test driving it) but more than likely the front end is badly out of alignment. ( If the car has been in a significant front end accident and badly repaired then this could also be a source of the problem as the alignment may not be capable of being properly set).

2. The first thing to do is take the car to a specialist suspension and steering shop and have the wheel alignment checked and adjusted to factory specs. Normally this is not expensive for a straight forward alignment but price depends on the shop. A good suspension shop will also identify if there are any wear problems with the steering or suspension that need attention

3. Older drivers sometimes frequently hit kerbs when parking their cars. This will throw out the front wheel alignment every time (and damage tyres) so it must always be avoided. Scrubbed.scuffed tyre side walls are an indication of this as well as scratched wheel rim edges.

4. Some drivers never check tyre pressures. Low tyre pressures will cause much greater tyre wear as there is more friction. (It will also make steering heavier, place undue stress on the steering components, cause the car to handle badly and result in much higher fuel consumption).
The lady needs to ensure her car has at least 32 lbs pressure in both front tyres and at least 30lbs in the rear (which carries less weight). The pressures must be set with COLD tyres. Manufacturer optimum spec tyre pressures are usually set for comfort. These can be safely exceeded by a few pounds. It is far safer (and more economical) to run slightly higher pressures than a setting that is too low. (A good tyre will run all day with 38-40 pounds pressure and 36-38 is quite safe).

5. Worn out shock absorbers will also contribute to abnormal tyre wear. 70000 miles of average driving will see out a set of shocks. (Personally I would not leave them that long as the factory shocks are generally of average quality on this type of car)..

That's the best I can do Brad without seeing the car so I hope this helps some. Hopefully a good wheel alignment will fix the problem but make sure the tyre pressures are kept up as well. If the shocks are worn out they will also need to be replaced if the car is to be roadworthy.
