  • Do you have a junk car taking up space on your property? It may be tempting just to leave it there; after all, who has time to worry about what to do with an old car after you spend the week working and running errands? Did you know you can earn cash for your old cars, though? Getting rid of it provides plenty of other benefits as well.

    1. You’ll Have More Space

    car that doesn’t run is just taking up valuable space. Getting it out of your garage gives you more space for the things you truly want to store. Use the newly freed-up area to store sports equipment, add a pool table to your property, or even to add a new, working car to your list of vehicles.

    2. It’s Better for the Environment

    Old cars that sit in one spot are a health and safety concern. They may cause hazardous chemicals to seep into the ground and eventually make their way into the water supply. This not only poses a threat to humans but to the ecosystem as a whole. Additionally, junk cars are often used for their metal, which reduces the pollution associated with mining and manufacturing new parts.

    3. You’ll Make Cash Fast

    At Cash For Junk Cars Chattanooga, you’ll get your money the very same day. Now, don’t expect a huge payout. In most cases, junk cars only bring in a few hundred dollars. Even so, that is enough to cover a bill or part of your rent, buy groceries, or simply have a fun night out on the town.

    4. Your Yard Will Look Prettier

    If your junk car is sitting on your lawn or in plain sight in your driveway, it’s likely taking away from your property value. Removing a junk car from your yard makes your lawn look nicer and prevents weeds and animals from taking refuge in and around the vehicle. This is especially important if you intend to sell your home sometime in the future.

    5. You’ll Have It Hauled Away for Free

    Spending money to haul away an old car can be expensive, but if you’re selling it for cash, the company you sell it to will likely haul it away for free. Depending on the company, the tow truck driver may be licensed, bonded, and insured for your peace of mind.

    6. You’ll Save Money

    In the state of Tennessee, any car that you have on your property must have an up-to-date registration, even if it isn’t drivable. This may not seem like much money, but registration costs $30 or more per year, which adds up.

    7. You Can Buy a New Car

    Now that you have the space and the money for a down payment, you can buy a new car. This means finding a new daily vehicle or a project car to work on during the weekends.

    Not all places that buy junk cars are created equally. Before settling on one place, call around first to ensure you find one that will haul the car away and pay you a fair amount for the vehicle.

    What Can Make a Motor Throw a Rod?

    by Gus Stephens
    Throwing a piston rod doesn't happen often, but it means major expense when it does.

    Back in the day, "throwing a rod" in an automobile engine was far more common than now. In modern engines that are properly maintained and not abused, a thrown piston rod in normal driving conditions has become extremely uncommon. Nevertheless, when it happens, it's a catastrophic event that usually requires a major overhaul, if not an entirely new engine. A piston rod is "thrown" when it separates from its connection point, whether at the piston pin at the top of the rod or at the bottom of the rod where the rod bearing attaches to the crankshaft. Conditions leading to a thrown rod aren't subtle or multifaceted. In most cases, the causes of a thrown rod are limited to a few major failures.

     

    Oil Pressure

    There are only two reasons why an engine would have oil pressure low enough to throw a rod. Excessive wear in very high-mileage vehicles can systemically lower oil pressure enough to cause a rod bearing to spin out of its bearing cap on the crankshaft due to friction from lack of lubrication. When this happens, the rod detaches from the crankshaft and, depending on whether it occurs on the upstroke or downstroke, either smashes the liberated piston into the cylinder head or knocks a hole in the engine block. The other reason for low oil pressure is, well, no oil in the crankcase. A warning light on the dashboard should let you know when things get that desperate. An oil pressure gauge to give you a continuous readout is a better early warning device. Checking your oil regularly--even better.

    Revved Out

    Over-revving an engine beyond its engineered limits can cause the rod, bearing or wrist pin to fail from excessive stress and heat. This is difficult to do in the average vehicle with standard factory setup because most have "rev limiters" to prevent it. But engines modified for competition or even just high-performance street operation are capable of putting the rpm's far enough into the red for long enough to spontaneously shed internal components.

    Valve Failure

    A broken intake or exhaust valve may drop into the piston cylinder. If the engine continues to run, the loose valve wreaks mechanical havoc in the cylinder, pulverizing the head of the piston and resulting in a thrown rod from breakage at the wrist pin.

    Nuts and Bolts

    Connecting rod bearings that attach the piston rod to the crankcase are enclosed in caps secured with highly-torqued nuts and bolts. Conceivably, any nut and bolt screwed together can loosen with age or if they aren't properly tightened to begin with. It's definitely not the first thing to suspect, but once in a while, those nuts work loose and release the bearing which then throws the rod. It can also happen if someone rebuilding an engine opts to reuse the previous bearing cap bolts and nuts which have already been overstressed by torquing and age. New rod bearings should always be installed with new hardware.

  • Junk Car Tip of the day: One of the most common ways to turn your beloved vehicle into a junk car is to neglect the cooling system.

     

    Owning a vehicle comes with the responsibility of taking care of it long after you drive off the dealership lot. This means investing time and money into caring for your car, regularly changing the oil, rotating the tires, and replenishing fluids. Keeping up with your vehicle’s preventative maintenance schedule is smarter and more affordable than waiting until more costly repairs are needed down the road.

    One aspect of preventative maintenance you may not know much about it radiator upkeep. There are certain steps you can take to help maintain a properly functioning radiator. Understanding more about the radiator itself and a few basic tips can save you time, money and a big headache in the future.

    Understanding the Role of the Radiator

    The radiator is the key component in your engine’s cooling system. The cooling system keeps your engine from overheating, which prevents internal components from melting, melding together, and causing your car to malfunction. It is no exaggeration to say that your cooling system is a component that prevents total engine failure.

    The radiators crucial role within the cooling system is regulating the temperature of the engine. It keeps the car from overheating on simple drives and well as keeping it functional on very cold nights.

    Basic Tips for Radiator Maintenance

    You don’t want to see your radiator fall into disrepair, of course, but what can you do to stop it from doing so?

    Some tips to consider:

    • Keep the coolant, or radiator fluid, filled at all times. You should always administer coolant with a 50/50 water mix, or purchase an already watered-down version from your local auto supply store.
    • Keep the radiator cap on tight; it’s designed to keep the entire coolant chamber pressurized.
    • Has your radiator cleaned out a couple of times each year? To save some time and also make it easier to remember, you can have this service performed whenever you take your vehicle in for a tire rotation or oil change.
    • Have your radiator flushed and filled on an annual basis. This is another service you can have done by your local trusted technician.

    How Often Should You Flush Your Radiator?

    The frequency of when radiator flushes should be performed varies by vehicle. Most cars typically require this service annually. In some cases, for those who drive their cars pretty heavily throughout the year and rack up a lot of miles, additional flushes may be necessary. This is something that your auto technician can help advise when you’re at the shop.

    Flushes are required to rid your radiator of particle buildup and prevent clogging. If recommended flushes are not performed, this buildup can spill throughout the entire cooling system. The results can be degradation and wearing down of the cooling system while preventing it from functioning properly.

    The bottom line is that, for any vehicle owner, radiator upkeep should be a priority
