The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show is next week and thereís a lot to be excited about.
Dozens of world premieres and debuts will take place in Germany, but some are more exciting than others. Best of all, not all the automakers have spilled details on what theyíre bringing, so we can expect some surprises once the show floor opens to the media.
For now, hereís AutoGuide.comĎs pick of the top 10 most anticipated debuts from the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Although some cars have already been exposed or revealed online, weíre still excited to see them in person once the automakers lift those pesky car covers.
Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car wonít start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Hereís a list with ten common reasons why cars donít start up and what you can do about it.
'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Instituteís Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. Heís certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if thereís something wrong with your car, chances are heís seen it before.
To diagnose the reason your car isnít starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customerís eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicleís failure to run.'
While the two situations might seem similar, they have very different meanings that are important to a mechanic and can signal different problems calling for a variety of solutions.
'Itís important to note that a vehicle is an extremely complicated machine and can exhibit similar symptoms for a variety of reasons,' he said. 'That is why itís important to first look at the type of Ďno startí and then at the list of conditions that could be causing it in the first place.'
Itís time to head to the big apple to get the juiciest new car news from the 2015 New York Auto Show.
Confirmed debuts include Cadillacís new CT6 flagship sedan and a production version of the Scion iM compact hatchback as well as the Scion iA small sedan.
