True! once chrome is gone; it's gone. But you can stop the rust etc and use a paint your wheels to trick it out and make it all yours!

Why not try a little CLR . If your not really worried about the finish, an SOS pad will work pretty good too. Old days we used to use coca-cola too.

Basically, once the chrome is gone it's gone and the metal beneath will begin to rust. You will never restore that chromed look and can only clean the dirt with DAWN dishwashing detergent with grease cutter. Good luck.

I turned on my head lights in my 99 f350 7.3 powerstroke and my dash lights came on then shut off and I can't find a blown fuse what could be the problem


If all fuses are good, it's possible that the headlight switch itself has failed or become rusty, or that the dash light dimmer has become dirty or rusty. Try some WD-40 on the headlight switch contacts, and same with the dash light dimmer wheel mechanism. Best of luck to you!

What causes chevy malibu engine revs up while idling?


The idle air control motor is dirty. Easiest way to clean is remove the throttle body and remove the idle air control motor off it. Use brake clean and clean both of them. Don't use a wire wheel on the control motor. This should take care of your problem.

The best solution is to replace the spark plugs as a rusty plug can cause a lot of issues on a long drive even if you can clean and set.

2002 bravada w / smart track. when coming to a complete stop the break pedal will pulsate & makes a rapid clicking. i removed the fuse for abs & it no longer does it.


HI The pulsing of the brake pedal is the ABS system cutting in because it thinks there is a situation
where one or more wheels is slowing down different to the other wheels ( But in reality is not ).
The problem is one of the wheel speed sensors giving a wrong signal to the system.
Bu can also be the toothed wheel which activates the sensors ( One on each wheel ) may be rusty or debri between the teeth so sensor does not give a clean signal .
This week i have replaced 2 toothed wheels for this problem on another product. The rigs were so
rusty they split and were then loose on the wheel hub
Hope i have been of some help to you ( a diagnosis would tell you exactly which wheel was at fault )

My brakes are not hardly working and I can smell them burning. What could be wrong?


The exposed surfaces of the brake pistons could be rusty, dirty or anything, what prevents them from being sucked up inside their place when you don't step on the brake pedal due to sub-pressure.
You need to remove your wheels, remove the brakes and have a visual check. Clean them with an engine cleaner spray or brake cleaner spray, and a paint brush. Do not metal polishing brush so as not to scratch the rubber sealing piston ring gaskets.

In general If you do it in your garage, it's an easy job, ok a little dirty, but quite fun, and gives you a big smile when you finally do it. Good luck.

Can not shift into four wheel drive


I had a similar problem, shift handle wouldn't pull back into 4WD. You'll have to get under the car (safely of course) and locate the the transfer case shift lever which will be directly below the shift lever assembly inside the car..You'll see some rods, trunnions and some brackets which probably will be dirty, rusty etc. Clean them up the best you can then douse everything with WD 40. Keep trying to pull the inside shift lever into 4WD untill the WD40 starts working. It may take a while but it'll work.

My ABS warning light is coming on sometimes?


A lot of times it's as simple as a dirty/rusty surface on one or more sensors at the wheels. Does it appear to happen more when wet weather, dirty roads etc? Also did he clean /sandpaper, or steel wool the sensors and wirebrush or whatever the reference points on the wheel do you know? I've seen a quick trip to the carwash, and blast water in behind the wheels, clean them too, especially here in Canada during snow season.

Alloy wheels pitted and rusing


Hi have a nice day!
I think following article found to be interesting.
Most wheels on the market today feature a painted surface, machine lip or face with a clear finish. To take care of your alloy wheels without damaging the protective finish frequent washing with a quality car wash, such as McGuire's or Polyglaze, and water is highly recommended.
Periodic use of a bug and stain remover can prevent permanent damage, whilst waxing will protect the alloy wheel finish from the elements. NEVER use abrasive cleaners, steel wool, or polishing compounds. ALWAY's be wary of automatic car washes. SOME use acidic cleaners to remove dirt and grime. Others may use stiff brushes for cleaning alloy wheels and tyres. BOTH of these WILL HARM your Wheels So always ask about equipment and procedures before entering the car wash.
Never allow your alloy wheels or tyres to be STEAM cleaned. Hot steam can dull the paint or clear coat finish on your alloy wheels. NEVER clean HOT Wheels always wait until they cool down. Water on your alloy wheels will dry faster on a hot surface and cause your cleaning solution to dry to quickly leaving spots or a film of soap on your wheels.
Cleaning wheels in direct sunlight also causes the wheel to dry out to quickly, leaving spot's in the finish. This is a particular problem with chrome wheels, and machined faced alloy wheels. Clean your wheels on a regular basis, they are often the dirtiest part of your vehicle and they're constantly exposed to the elements, corrosive brake dust, ocean and sea salt plus the inevitable road tar.
Disc brake dust is a BIG problem. If not REMOVED it can actually burn small marks into the chrome or alloy wheels, which in turn if left untreated can lead to PITTING of your alloy or chrome wheels. Chrome plated wheels are particularly susceptible if left untreated SO please make sure care is taken. Clear coating on your machine lip of face alloy wheels can suffer a similar fate if left untreated.
If you do not clean Chrome Wheels or Alloy Wheels regularly moisture, which harboured in brake dust and grime, can lead to SEVERE pitting and rusting of chrome wheel surfaces.
TAKE "PROPER" care otherwise your warranty on your Alloy wheels or Chrome Wheels could be voided.
