It’s a hot day. You just exited an air-conditioned home or office. You make a beeline to your car. Then, you quickly unlock it, open the door, and enter a hot and stale air filled vehicle. You start your engine and quickly turn on the AC expecting cool air to start flowing. You wait. Only […]
Picture this, you’re driving down the road and you press down on your brake pedal because you need to either slow down or come to a stop. While pressing on the brake pedal, all of a sudden you hear a grinding noise coming from somewhere. Next, you immediately take your foot off the pedal and […]
