    I stand by my comment. Sitting on your ass all day watching tv and eating chips Oman and getting fat isn’t a medical condition. It’s being lazy. And the people who can afford to sit around and watch tv all day and not have to move while the maids do all the work, this tax won’t make any difference to them. It’s pointless.

    Roll bars/cages on a road car are never a good idea. Sure it looks cool, but unless you’re wearing a helmet and at least a 4 point harness, you can crack your skull wide open on them in the smallest accident.

    RTA Vehicle Testing is mandatory all across the Emirates in UAE. RTA vehicle renewal is a part of vehicle ownership in the UAE as well as many other developed countries, to check for faults that may endanger lives. There are several RTA testing centers in UAE, conveniently placed and open for long working hour for RTA test. Tasjeel is run by ENOC in Dubai, Sharjah and northern emirates with many Tasjeel vehicle testing branches. Shamil vehicle testing is run by EMARAT in Dubai and Sharjah with few testing centers. Wasel vehicle testing is run by BELHASA group in Dubai in Jadaf area. Adnoc vehicle inspection center is run by ADNOC in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and western region. Below is a list of tests performed during RTA Vehicle testing, along with tips to repair or prevent the issues: Vehicle identification: They will match your chassis number and registration. Emissions: They have three categories - carburetor petrol engine, fuel injected petrol engine, and diesel engine. Regular oil changes and visits to the mechanic will keep emissions under control. Braking system: Will be inspected for leaks, warped rotors, worn drums, squeaks, and performance. The handbrake will be checked too. Steering system: Checked for play. The couplings and joints must be in good condition. Visibility: This test checks the tint on your windows, your rear view mirror, and condition of the windshield glass, the wipers, and the washers. Remember to fill up on washer fluid. If you have rock chips in your windshield, you can repair it by filling it with resin. The kit is not cheap, but neither is a windshield. Lighting equipment: Examination of your high and low beams for position and brightness. Your headlight lenses must be clear as well. A yellowed headlight can be restored with some 3000-grit sandpaper and some polish. Running gear: Your vehicle axles, wheels, and tires will be checked. Most cars that fail this test either have worn CV joints or loose steering arms. Suspension problems can be detected easily by the sound your car makes when going over bumps. Put some lithium grease on your bushings to keep them flexible and last longer. Chassis and frame attachments: Any strut bars or braces, mounts, and the frame are inspected to ensure there is no structural rust or unrepaired accident damage. You can repair a rusted frame by cutting out the rusted parts and welding in uncorroded metal. RTA recommends that all aftermarket under body protection gear must be removed prior to the inspection. Key equipment check: Is your driver’s seat mounted properly? Your battery must be secured in position. All audible warnings that came with the car must be functioning as per GCC specifications. They will also check to see if you have your warning triangle in the trunk. Feel free to place the triangle in a more conspicuous place to help out the inspectors. Your seat belts would be checked as well.

    I’ve seen this lately on lots of Honda Civics, accompanied by LED lights underneath the car, chrome rims, and F&F stickers. Recommend to install on both sides to make it even stronger by using a bridle 😂😂😂

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Obesity_in_the_Middle_East_and_North_Africa Obesity in the Middle East and North Africa Read in another language Watch this page Edit Obesity in North Africa and the Middle Eastis a notable health issue. In 2005, the World Health Organization measured that 1.6 billion people were overweight and 400 million were obese. It estimates that by the year 2015, 2.3 billion people will be overweight and 700 million will be obese.[1] The Middle East, including the Arabian Peninsula, Eastern Mediterranean, Turkey and Iran, and North Africa, are no exception to the worldwide increase in obesity. Subsequently, some call this trend the New World Syndrome.[2] The lifestyle changes associated with the discovery of oil and the subsequent increase in wealth is one contributing factor. Urbanization has occurred rapidly and has been accompanied by new technologies that promote sedentary lifestyles.[3] Due to accessibility of private cars, television, and household appliances, the population as a whole is engaging in less physical activity. The rise in caloric and fat intake in a region where exercise is not a defining part of the culture has added to the overall increased percentages of overweight and obese populations.[4] In addition, women are more likely to be overweight or obese due to cultural norms and perceptions of appropriate female behavior and occupations inside and outside of the home.[5]

    It’s is mainly a diesel thing but EGT good information to have anyway to give you an idea of how rich/lean the engine is running. You’ll get this data from the lambda sensor anyway but it’s always good to have as many reference points as possible.

    This is actually how long will they take to recharge. Obviously the wall box is slower because its only 60 amp outlet as opposed to the 300 amps and 480V for the fast charger. They are everywhere across the UAE and in Dubai there are plenty so running out of battery is less likely.

    Replacing cars as we know them with electric cars on large scales (i.e., within 20 years as some governments are planning to do) is a pipe dream, and will remain a pipe dream for at least another 100 years, or the oil runs out- whichever comes first. Arguing about where to charge an electric car now seems like a very minor issue given the fact that the world does not have the generating capacity to charge hundreds of millions of electric vehicles. Most developed countries can hardly supply their local demands for electricity as it is, so where even the rich countries are going to find the money to build dozens of additional power stations and the required infrastructure to charge EV's is a bit of a mystery.

    Obesity From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigationJump to search For the medical journal, see Obesity (journal). Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to an extent that it may have a negative effect on health.[1] People are generally considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, is over 30 kg/m2; the range 25–30 kg/m2 is defined as overweight.[1] Some East Asian countries use lower values.[8] Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases and conditions, particularly cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, osteoarthritis, and depression.[2][3]

    You can recharge your electric car with any electrical plug. It will take time but it will recharge. Specially in UAE cities are too close. Fully charged electric car making around 450km by today`s standards. Which mean if you are in the middle of Abu Dhabi and Dubai and if you are stupid enough to not check you electric gauge. I am sure that that car will warn you many red lights before electric is fully finished. You can enter any fuel station or restaurant and you can charge your car enough to reach next city in 2-3 hours( you will be already pass maybe 60-70km and you need to go other 60-70km which means you need %15 electric). This will happen once in a 10 year. Since i start driving 10 years past and i never face no fuel or no electric issue.

    Sweihan dunes also regarded as "Little Liwa" by some offers plenty of opportunities to test our desert driving skills by climbing sideways, ridge riding, ridge cutting and to climb huge dunes to its peak and capture some stunning pictures. As the weather is still hot, its best to start off at the onset of sunrise and have a good 3 hours of fast paced drive through some of the most amazing dunes that UAE has to offer. This drive is for Intermediate & above level When: 16th August 2019, Friday Meeting time: 4:45 AM, Convoy will move sharp at 5:00 AM Meeting GPS Coordinate: https://goo.gl/maps/4YP93yynZaYBuNHq7 Level of drive: Intermediate & Above What to bring along: Snacks, Quick Breakfast whatever you like with little extra to share, water, liquids, smiles, stories, enthusiasm and willingness to learn. Approximate Finish Time: 9:00 AM on 16th August 2019, Friday Please Note, at meeting point there is no petrol station, make sure you fill your tanks on your way at nearest petrol station. If you are coming via the Abu Dhabi truck road the nearest gas station is https://goo.gl/maps/xnrTzaMEpAN3UXWF6.

    I have recently tried yo get the plugs changed as my Pathy was missing. Coming home on Thursday evening the race drops and picks up again causing a hiccup effect. I took it to the garage and they cleaned the throttle body and checked the fuel pressure and that seems in tact. So now to the speed of 80 KPH it's all OK but once I go past 80 KPH the hiccups start again and very violent at times. My suspect is still the plugs. However when trying to remove the plugs I've been told the they might break and once broken we would have to open the head. I've been watching some YouTube videos and patience seems to be the key. As long as there is some movement we have to turn it off as much as possible, again tighten it and keep repeating the exercise till it comes off. Still there is a chance that the plug might break. But on YouTube there is a solution other than opening the head. There is a tool called a screw extractor. Need to just hammer it into the broken spark plug and start screwing it. This should get the broken piece out and we are ready to fit the new plugs. Can someone with the right tools guide me where I can get this done, as I am a bit tight on cash and don't want to get into a big expense right now. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Just something else to throw out there. If you have an Android head unit, you can download Torque or a similar app onto it, use the Bluetooth dongle, and you can have real time live data displayed on a full size screen as you drive. Better than looking at a tiny phone screen. Installed this system in a G65 a few months ago. Total cost for head unit and dongle was under 1,500 plus my time to install it, but this is something anyone can buy the parts and do themselves. Dragon mart has all the stuff.

    Not any grease Bhai I once had a car come in with funky starting issue cleaned the grease on the terminal which seemed like he got for free so why not just dip the battery in it....

    Mathias is a top class dude, both professionally and personally. I’ve watched him design and fabricate some funky stuff that I would have no idea about, all from an idea he gets in his head. He designed and built the crazy lengthened and widened Jeep CJ chassis with the dual front diffs along with the suspension system to make it all work. I’m not a big recommender because I don’t want bad work to come back on me but that’s one guy I would recommend to anyone who needs any welding or fabrication work done.

    The car has a distributor Dtc flashing when it miss fires is mostly on seen on Toyota and Lexus cars Scanned the car only knock b1 code is there Saw live data of hot wire it's around 1.56 and raises as the paddle is pressed so seems good Up till now have only seen sized plugs only in Nissan engines In my 5 attempts with different Nissan's have broke 4 plugs only 1 somehow by miracle loosen up Plugs do spatter under certain load or rpm All my plugs sockets the 22mm 16mm and 14mm rubbers somehow just vanish now I only use magnet to pull them up
  49. 1 point
    Sounds more like a bad coil to me. Does the DTC flash when it's rough? Disconnect one coil at a time when running rough to see if there are any changes. If you take out a coil and there is no change means that coil is knackered. Or try using a simple obdii scanner one can be had off amazon for 20dhs. Also disconnect the MAF when idling rough. If it gets better means MAF has taken a dive. Plugs will in majority of the the cases not cause intermittent problems.

    Mix ATF and acetone (nail polish remover) 50/50 and pour it on the threads every day for a week. It will soak into the threads though capillary action and make them easier to remove. But you need to give it time. It’s not an overnight thing. Keep repeating. Doing it on a warm engine will help. If you’re using a spark plug socket, take the rubber insert out. I don’t know how, I don’t know why, but when you use the insert, there is a higher chance of breaking the plug. An old mechanic told me this years ago and from my experience he was right. Use a regular socket. When it’s loose, use a magnet to lift the plug out. Screw extractors, also known as Ezee Outs serve a purpose but you have to be careful using them. They are made of extremely hard metal, therefore extremely brittle. They are harder than drill bits so if you break a screw extractor it’s not just a matter of drilling it out. Are you sure it’s a spark plug problem? Speed is irrelevant. Bad plugs will cause a misfire under load, ie when you are holding the throttle down and trying to accelerate. If you want to drop by the shop I’ll take a look at it for you, FOC.
