Why Should You Buy Used Auto Parts?

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

Everybody who owns a car, truck or even a motorcycle have to shop for spare parts at some point of time. These parts generally, come very expensive and along with the service charges they tend to burn a hole in your pockets. However, you can avoid this by doing some smart business and getting yourself used auto parts at a fraction of the original price.

People, usually, have an opinion that these second hand parts are of very poor quality. They think that the only place where they could hunt for them is a nearby junkyard. This is, however, not the truth. In fact, there are many reliable and reputed places where you could find used auto parts that are as good as new ones. What’s more, you get them at incredibly low prices. This, however, doesn’t mean that they’re of inferior quality.

While junk yards are one of the most common places where you can find used parts, they’re not the only places. Though, you will always get much better deals at junkyards than any other place. Most of the damaged and old vehicles always have a number of spares that work perfectly well. Sometimes these parts are almost new. The only problem with junkyards is that at most of the times you will have to locate and remove the spare part yourself. On the flipside, this saves your money on labor charges that some other dedicated stores might charge you.

Another option that you have is to buy reconditioned parts from an authorized – or private – service center. Even though, these are used auto parts, they are almost as good as new ones. Have you ever wondered what happens to your vehicles’ old parts when you order a replacement? Those parts are restored by the stores and they sell them for peanuts to people who don’t want to spend on brand new parts. Not to mention that sometimes these parts carry a warranty with them. This is what makes it the next best thing after buying new parts, if not better than that.

What’s more? The more you reuse these parts, the more you would reduce your carbon footprint. You will also save the earth and its valuable forests from excessive mining. When these parts are dumped in a junkyard then over a period of time they contaminate the soil due to lubricants and other toxic substances used in them. The pollutants can also reach the groundwater and contaminate your water supply over a period of time. So, by purchasing used auto parts you are not only saving loads of cash, but you’re also helping in preserving the environment and ensuring a safe future for your next generation.

If you’re looking to buy used auto parts, but don’t know where to begin; then have a glance at the given link. Their fast and free service will locate your used auto part.

Junkyards and Junkyard Dogs!

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

I enjoy a good junkyard!

I mean, most people who really like cars can find almost anything in a junkyard. I have seen very old cars, hot rods and antique cars and parts as well as cool engines that were ready to be rebuilt, come back to life and power a new hot rod again for another 10 or 20 years.

(Where else ya gonna go to find a real live junkyard dog? I am talkin’ bout the real deal here. A dog that will let you walk right past him during the day when business is conducted, but will tear you apart after hours! No foolin’ around.)

I have gotten lots and lots of junk car parts that work fine and are half price at junkyards. I found parts that are available nowhere else.

If a particular junkyard does not happen to have the part you are looking for that day, they can make a search through a computer network especially for junkyards and locate that part in seconds.

Many junkyards will specialize in the make of car it deals with. Most junk yards will have more of one kind of car parts than others, too like Chevy, Ford, Mustang or Corvette parts. The same with BMW, Mercedes or Jaguar they are all specialty parts that would be kept in certain areas, or they might be a specialty of a particular junkyard. Antique parts are hard to find and show up mostly at automobile auctions or auto trading shows like at Carlisle Pennsylvania.

Online junkyards are popular too. Just do a search for “junkyards” and up pops a whole list of them just waiting to take your order and ship that part right back to you – for a price! But that price is going to be a lot cheaper than a parts house, usually! Always check the after-market stores before calling a junkyard to determine the price and availability of your part before trying junkyards.

Remember, electrical parts are non-refundable from junkyards.

Happy hunting!

Is it Very Difficult to Get Classic Auto Parts?

Saturday, October 30th, 2010

If you are working on restoring a classic car, finding parts can be a challenge. Depending on the vintage and popularity of the model you own, parts may or may not be available through the original manufacturer. If they are, the manufacturer will charge a premium price, because there is less demand for those parts then there would be for parts for newer models. If you cannot get parts from the dealership or original manufacturer, you are going to have to get creative. Here are some options for you to consider.

Shop with Other Enthusiasts

If you can join a classic car enthusiast club or website or simply network with other enthusiasts in your area, you may be able to find some contact information for parts suppliers that deal with used classic car auto parts. Some of the enthusiasts themselves may have parts they no longer need or cars they are willing to take parts from to sell. Of course, there is no guarantee that you will find parts in this way, but it is worth a try.

Go Online

Another option to consider is shopping online. You can find many classic car parts on eBay and online classifieds websites. Shopping online opens the entire world to your disposal, so if you are searching for a very rare part, you have a greater chance of finding it. Keep in mind, however, that many stores and websites are geared toward American shoppers, so you might have to pay extra for shipping when shopping from Canada. Always watch the shipping fees before you commit to making a purchase, because these can greatly affect how much of a bargain or value you are getting for your money.

Also, keep in mind that you will not have the chance to see the parts before you buy. Make sure the online listing has very detailed photos. Even with pictures, though, you still run the risk of ending up with a rusty part, because the photographer can conveniently forget to show a side of the part that contains rust damage.

Head to the Junk Yard

Another option is to visit a junkyard. Junkyards deal with cars of all years, makes, and models, and they salvage every part possible from the cars they get. Because most of the cars they take in are older, you have a high likelihood of finding something to fit your classic car.

Most junkyard owners are experts in car parts, simply because of the nature of their work. You can ask the junkyard owner to keep his eyes open for a particular part that you need.

Some junkyards even list their inventory online, giving you the chance to see what they have from the comfort of your home. If you do not live near the junkyard, you can order over the phone or Internet if they have what you need. Shopping for parts for your classic car can be like a treasure hunt. You have to be creative and the search can be a challenge, but with these resources you are sure to find what you need.

The Economic and Environmental Impact of the Automobile

Friday, October 29th, 2010

There is no such thing as a car. So what does this mean to you? What does this do to your lifestyle?

Can you see the point I am trying to make? It is this: you could not visualize your present day way of life, if somehow, incredibly, the automobile were suddenly subtracted from our midst. The longer you think about the consequences of such a hypothetical event, the longer becomes your list of all the ways that you would be affected.

Starting with the obvious point, most people would quickly find that their travelling range was sharply limited. The number of places they could visit, or the things that they could do, would be cut in half at the very least. At the simplest level, the scope of interesting experiences open to most people would be greatly reduced without the widespread availability of the automobile.

Look at the problem in another way. For a great many persons, the car is the only practical means of getting to work. Without cars, nearly everyone who now lives in suburban areas, for instance, would be unable to go to work. Something would have to change; either their work would come to them, or they would have to move. It wouldn’t take much time to figure that unless the whole structure of the industry were to alter, the suburbs would virtually disappear. Or to juggle slightly with the framework of our imaginary discussion, it is entirely reasonable to claim that the automobile is a major factor explaining why the suburbs are continuing to grow.

Nor does the discussion of this particular point end here. People living in suburbs want expressways that can get them to and from their job in the middle of the city in the shortest possible time. People who live in metropolis areas don’t always think so much of this idea. They claim – or at least many of them do – that expressways carve up the cities and leave them ruined. Who is right? That is a question that may well turn into one of the most controversial political issues regarding infrastructure and domestic policies in the future.

Cars are built by people. Self-evident but significant. The automobile companies collectively are the largest employer in the industrialized world today. Quite obviously, cars and their manufacture are a vital component of our economy.

Beyond the manufacturing sector of the auto industry are the people who design, advertise and sell automobiles, there is almost an endless succession of men and women who earn their livelihood in an occupation that is connected in some way with that one central object, the car. The miner who extracts iron ore from the ground, the smelter-worker who converts the iron to steel, the metallurgist who decides the exact composition of the steel according to what function it must perform – these persons operate at the beginning of the process. The chemist who synthesizes artificial rubber for the tires, or invents a new plastic for the tail light, is equally involved in the creation of the automobile.

How about the engineer who designs the highways and bridges we drive on? How about the truckers carrying gravel to the construction site, or the pavers who finish the asphalt surface? Don’t forget the geologist who searches for crude oil, or the well driller who brings it to the surface, or the engineer who separates the crude oil into gasoline, oil, grease, and related products.

Driving instructors depend on the car for their living. So do mechanics, rust-prevention specialists, chauffeurs, race car drivers, taxi drivers, truck drivers, and countless dozens of other drivers. Tax collectors, traffic policemen, lawyers, and judges all have the car to thank for some portion of their income. Accessory manufacturers produce anything from fancy hubcaps to state of the art stereo systems, GPS systems, etc. Finally, at the end of the cycle, there is the auto wrecker. The next person on the scene is the car salesman and the process starts over.

A large percentage of Americans either work directly for an auto manufacturer or make their bread due to the automobile industry. If the automobile were to suddenly disappear, the economic consequences would be utterly impossible to predict.

Our dependence on the automobile is the root of two particularly worrisome problems presently facing our society.

Problem one is that automobiles damage the environment. The fear of a future landscape completely covered with asphalt is a topic that many environmentalists and the next generation are extremely concerned with. Automobile junkyards and roadside billboards are only beautiful by those who are making money from them.

But the aesthetics of paved roads, junk yards and billboards isn’t the primary concern. By far the most immediate and serious worry posed by our involvement with the automobile is the danger of air pollution. The petroleum based fuels used by car engines emit small quantities of carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and other green house gases. Given the tremendous number of cars being put on the road each day in emerging countries such as India and China, the problem only promises to get worse.

Despite the danger that exists, considerable progress has been made towards minimizing the emission of green house gases. Perhaps as important a change as any is that public awareness of the problem now exists, so that the pollution caused by automobiles is no longer ignored.

The second major problem with the automobile is that it is dangerous. Even with the introduction of additional safety features over the past thirty years such as air bags, anti-lock brakes, and traction control a North American is killed in a car accident every hour. More North Americans have been killed in automobiles than in wars. These are incredible statistics if you stop and think about them.

What can be done about this highly unpleasant side-effect of the car? The problem can be tackled in a number of ways. One approach is that of improved highway design. Better lighting, better signs, better intersection control, less rigid light standards and guard rails, and other improvements have all contributed to a less painful accident per mile figure than might otherwise have been the case.

Another approach is to improve the design of the car from the point of view of safety. Unquestionably, great steps have been taken. Fifteen years ago, air bags were an oddity; now, even passenger side air bag and side door air bags are becoming common.

Despite these measures, “consumer protection” groups have been outspoken in their criticism of the manufacturers, whom they accuse of dragging their heels, being more concerned with designing glamour into their cars versus designing them safely, with the intention of attracting a younger consumer base. Given the fact that they are obliged to pay satisfactory dividends to shareholders, the manufacturers not surprisingly are opposed to any change that threatens to decrease their profits.

However, by and large, the car companies have been agreeable to accept government imposed safety standards. All car manufacturers are on the same playing field, so none will suffer a competitive disadvantage. Despite this acceptance, however, there has still been some resistance in recent years by the manufacturers, on the grounds that some government standards are too tough to be met in the time allowed.

Nevertheless, innumerable objective studies have all pointed to the same conclusion – that the greatest single cause of accidents is, in fact, the driver. The reasons for this vary with the circumstances – in one case, the problem may be lack of driving skill; in another, a momentary lapse of attention. Or poor vision. Or failure to compensate for bad conditions. Or intoxication. Or over confidence. Or a combination of several of these, or a different reason altogether. But these problems we ourselves can correct – and that is the whole point of this article. Anyone can learn to drive. But expert driving – and really, safe driving is exactly the same thing – it is a skill that takes time to acquire, and has as its benefits the pleasure and satisfaction that come from doing any task properly.

Junkyards in Texas – The Original Recyclers

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Although it may seem as though recycling is a new concept that has recently become popular, in reality recycling is something the salvage yards of Texas have been doing for years. Have you ever wondered what happens to all the hazardous waste materials that are contained in a vehicle once it becomes inoperative? Well owners and operators of Texas salvage yards know the answer and they are the key to ensuring that these dangerous chemicals never encounter fragile ecosystems like the air and groundwater.

Most are members of TARA, the Texas Automotive Recyclers Association and ARA, which is a national trade organization for automotive recyclers around the country, and adhere to strict policies for handling and disposing of hazardous waste materials. Salvage yards in Texas work closely with local and federal environmental agencies to ensure that the materials are handled in responsible ways.

To date, Texas auto recyclers along with auto recyclers throughout the United States have spent in excess of $50 million on environmental compliance and have recovered enough steel from salvaged vehicles to build more than 13 million new cars. These strides mean that less iron and aluminum have to mined and preserves our precious non-renewable resources. Not only do Texas junk yards save resources they also help save consumers hundreds of thousands of dollars every year by providing access to quality used parts. By properly handling, removing and storing those parts that are in good conditions from non-operative vehicles, automotive recyclers can save customers up 75% off the price of what it would cost to buy that same part new from a dealership. In the past, an inoperative vehicle may stay in someone’s backyard for years or sit cluttering up streets and side alleys rusting away. Today that same car can be taken to a salvage yard and sold for up to several hundred dollars depending on the age and condition. The salvage yard then safely removes all hazardous waste materials and then removes all the salvageable parts then makes them available to the public at a discounted price. This is truly recycling at its best and Texas junk yards are proud to be a part of it.

Texas automotive recyclers have now become part of the internet connection as well. By inventorying parts on computer and utilizing satellite and internet, most salvage yards throughout Texas are able to access one another’s inventory. For the consumer that means an ending to calling around to every salvage yard in town to find the correct part. Now all one has to do is call one recycler and they can locate a part anywhere in the country. Whether the part is located 10 miles away or 100 most salvage yards will ship the part directly to your door. Direct access inventory is simple and convenient and always works in the consumers favor.

The salvage yards of Texas today are proud to be on the cutting edge of automotive recycling and they work hard to pass these savings on to the citizens of Texas.

Great Deals and Tips on Parts for Your Car

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

Car parts, just like cars keep going up and up in price. Just look at any recent bill for service for your car. $69 is not uncommon for an oil change if you have a Mercedes or BMW at your local dealer. $600 for headlights (not including installation), $700 water pump, $200 per tire – or more for certain cars. It just gets ridiculous. It has been estimated that if one were to try and buy all the parts for a car through their local dealer it would cost 300-500,000 for all the parts on the average car. someone is getting rich here and it isn’t us. There is a better way.

Start by looking online. There are junk yards that have the parts you need. And just because they are referred to as junkyards, doesn’t mean they only sell junk. Lots of their inventory is from cars that are less than 1 year old. What do you think happens to the perfectly good tires on a new BMW that was junked do to rear accident. Some wiley person buys them at a great discount for their own car. Junk or salvage yards turnover millions of dollars in car parts every year. The best site to use is They will research thousands of salvage dealers and display the prices in order from cheapest and newest and colors, etc… You enter your part needs and then they will find your parts for you. It is not uncommon to get basically brand new or similar items for 1/5 the price a dealer charges or less.

Another great place is Ebay and Ebay Motors. There are lots of car parts on there for just about every make year and model of car. Everything from a hood to a door, interior carpet, radios, speakers, wheels – even spinners so you can pimp your ride like on tv and in the movies. I’ve even seen celebrity cars for sale on their and parts autographed by Nascar drivers like Jeff Gordon, Rusty Wallace, Dale Earnhardt, Dale Jr., etc… Even if you don’t end up buying on Ebay, it is generally a wholesale marketplace and will give you a feel for the value and true pricing of certain parts. It will also show you the huge difference between the actual value and what a dealer charges. Just remember this – “Dealer bad, Ebay good.” You can even buy your car on Ebay and save a mint – no bogus processing fees, lies by salesmen and their managers whose only job is to squeeze every penny they can out of you – especially the finance manager (they get you just hen you think you are done – and many times they get you for thousands of dollars in profit). Bogus dealer processing fees totalled more than $50 billion in 2005 – no wonder dealers are getting richer, playing more golf, etc… But due to lawyers and tax strategies the average dealer pays less in taxes than most americans (average dealer tax rate >1%) – go figure.

So there you have it get online and use salvage yards and Ebay to get a great deal on all your car part needs. For instructions on installing any part just look it up on Google. There are thousands of great forums and blogs that for free will give great pictures and step by step explanations on everything from changing a tire to a camshaft, bleeding brakes, fan belt replacement, etc… Do not use your dealer unless you like getting fleeced on a daily basis – as that is what they will do.

How to Shop For Car Parts Using Junkyards and Salvage Yards

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Cheap cars and Junkyards pretty much go hand in hand. Now of course there are a million places to get parts from new and used from ebay to your local parts store. In the age of limitless online suppliers and a world wide parts market I think a lot of part shoppers have forgotten about using the local salvage yard as a parts alternative.

I think that for some amateur wrenchers the salvage yard can seem like a somewhat intimidating kind of place to be. Thoughts of pit bulls and a big fella named skeeter may come to mind ( no offense to any salvage yard owners named skeeter), but actually they can be a great place to quickly and easily locate used parts.

Personally I much rather prefer the yards that are willing to simply let you browse around on your own. These yards can also be a good spot to find some better prices, because in some cases a little haggling can be done. If your looking to make a trip to one of these “you pick you pull” type yards its a good idea to take a few steps to come prepared.

First bring some tools of course! Usually a decent enough socket set, some screwdrivers, and a set of vice-grips will get the job done and not be too heavy to carry around. In some cases bringing a jack may be necessary, but some yards are willing to provide jacks and engine hoists or at least rent them. If bringing any power tools, torches, or other equipment its a good idea to check with the owner first. Also its a good idea to wear some old clothes, a pair of boots, and some thick gloves (lots of old rusty debris can be a hazard and most yards tend to get pretty muddy and can have some really over grown grass).

After finding the right part, some may be concerned about how they know that the part is going to be in good enough condition to reuse. Honestly it really depends on the part and a lot of other variables, but in most cases yard owners are willing to provide some type of warranty or guarantee.

So the next time you decide to purchase a used car part don’t forget that there could be a great deal waiting for you at your local yard and the shopping experience itself can be pretty fun too!

How to Junk Your Car

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Do you have an old car that’s been sitting in your yard forever and you don’t know what to do about it? Maybe nothing works on it anymore, and it’s all rusted out. There is no sense in trying to fix or restore it. So, you’re thinking of getting a junk car removal service to haul it away since you figure paying to get rid of the thing is a bargain. Well, before you do this, here are some things you ought to know, because you might be throwing good money away.

Many folks don’t realize that an old piece of junk metal can bring a good price from a junk yard. The prices of steel and other metals have been fluctuating lately, but metal never becomes worthless. The way that junk car removal services make money is by breaking the old cars down into pieces which can be sold separately as used auto repair parts before being sold for scrap metal. The battery, catalytic converter, the rims, tires, radio or CD player, etc. can be worth a lot of money. An old junker may be worth between $100 – $300 and in some cases more to the right buyer. And, depending on whom you talk to, you might get a $100 difference in price between the top and bottom offers.

Be sure to take an inventory of the trunk to see whether there may be any tools, jumper cables, additives, or a spare tire which can be sold separately. Look beneath the seats for money or personal items. It’s a good idea to have a copy of the title for the car as this is required in some states to avoid stolen vehicles from being turned in and most yards prefer to have the original title. The junkyard will know whether a title is required of a car which is going to a crusher. If the car still runs but needs some repairs, you might run an honest advertisement in the newspaper to sell junk car, to see if anyone is interested. It can be worth the cost of the ad to find this out. If you don’t want to mess with the hassle of running the advertisement then make sure to tell the junkyard that the car still runs. Better yet if you can drive it in you may receive more money since they don’t have to recoup their towing expenses.

Start by checking out classified ads in the automotive section under “junk cars”; or in the Yellow Pages under “automotive”; or search the internet for “junk car Chicago”. Also check out “towing”. Maybe you’ve seen signs along the road advertising to buy junk cars. Be aware that even if an advertisement says they pay “up to $300”, that doesn’t mean that’s how much money you’ll get. There is a lot of misleading advertising in the junk car business, since a lot of money can be made on junkers, so some unscrupulous operators rely on people’s ignorance and willingness to “just get that wreck out of here” to make more money. When a guy is standing in your yard with the cash in his hand, even if it is a fraction of what the advertisement promised, the temptation is to close the deal then and. Don’t do it. Shop around and compare different offers. Also, if the car can still be driven, find out if you can get more money driving it to the junkyard yourself rather than having it towed in.

It’s usually possible to make some money when you sell junk car, rather than just paying a junk car removal service to haul it away. Check out the classifieds or internet under “junk car Chicago” and you might surprise yourself with how valuable your junker really is. If you do need to haul the junker away, contact North Shore Towing.

Does it Make Sense to Rebuild Your Auto Engine?

Monday, October 25th, 2010

Is the engine in your car or late model truck worth rebuilding? Is the time, trouble and expense worth it or should you check one of other alternatives available to you such as a used engine, a full or partial professional rebuild or a factory service like rebuild – many of which now are being done offshore and being shipped back to U.S. automotive consumers?

The do it yourselfer is faced with these options to evaluate when it comes to the dreaded time of a potential engine overall. Most likely you have gotten a good number of relatively trouble free services from your automotive engine and are now faced with the prospect of an engine overhaul. The decision to replace the engine bloc, piston, connecting rod assemblies as well as crankshaft depends on a number of factors, with the number one consideration being the condition of the engine block. Other considerations are cost, ready access to machine and auto shop facilities, parts availability, time required to complete the project and finally the extent of prior mechanical experience on the part of the do-it-yourselfer home auto mechanic.

Next consider the value of the vehicle. It has turned out that frequently the total end cost of the parts required to complete the task of rebuilding the engine is greater and more than the actual value of the vehicle. It can be said that often ego and pride of ownership gets in the way of a fair and true evaluation of the situation, its costs and reasonable conclusions on the suitability of the project at all. As a case in point one proud owner of what might be considered a truck that was long past its prime and in great need of repair convinced himself that expensive repairs were in order by himself when a quick tour of local area junkyards should of convinced that the truck itself could be replaced by any of the similar vehicles that were laying about these auto parts recycling facilities.

In such situations where the cost for a full engine overhaul is greater than the cost of a full and proper engine rebuild one option to consider is a used engine from one of above auto junk yards. True the engine may not have the full engine life of a rebuilt engine but there may be more than enough lifespan in one of these replacements which come at a much lower cost and may indeed outlive the body components and lifespan of the vehicle itself. In addition most of the professional auto parts recycling shops will both have tested and warranty the engine for a reasonable initial automobile test and evaluation time period.

It can be said that the vehicle may seem to have great value to you. The question to ask is “If I sink in this money and time of a full rebuilt engine will anyone pay me more for my vehicle or if I sell this vehicle will I get my money back?” The answer is usually “Probably not”. However it can be said that devil you know is better than the devil you do not. You will have a vehicle whose history and maintenance background is well known to you. You will know the quirks and characteristics of the vehicle – of what to expect and what repairs as well are upcoming. Thus said sinking money and time into rebuilding your engine or engine block may make good sense to you overall in the end.

About Car Body Kits

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

For all the car owners who are much concerned about the maintenance of their cars utilizing the affordable options there are a number of possibilities to help them out. Not only the real markets but the World Wide Web, as well offers many online stores from where one can buy quality automotive parts at very affordable rates.

Whether one has a vintage car or fifty years old truck, the various parts of the same including the light, engines and other parts can be found at discounted rates on the various internet websites that specialize in dealing only the automotive parts.

Most of the websites on the World Wide Web dealing in the automotive’s parts have been designed keeping in mind the comfort and ease of the users. Thus, they are developed in an easy to navigate fashion and have common mode of payments using the PayPal or other methods, of which the online shoppers are already aware of. This also saves the time for the online automotive shoppers to visit the bank for the transfer of money. Furthermore, the parts bought from the internet do offer more cost effective prices as the websites are usually offering discounts on their automotive’s being purchased through the World Wide Web.

However, if one cannot opt for shopping online from the World Wide Web, there are still options to make use of the effective channels to buy the automotive parts. One of them includes visiting the salvage yards or the auto junkyard for looking for the parts that one is interested in buying. However, one thing to be kept in mind is that this approach should be selected only by those who have a sound knowledge pertaining to the automotive parts. The automotive parts procured from the junk yards allow the customer a price reduction up to fifty percent and in some cases even more.

For those who do not have any knowledge regarding the auto parts, it is recommended that they visit the shops which sell used or refurbished automotive parts. Though the refurbished parts may be repaired in some of the cases yet, they come with a warranty and are technically sound, which is the reason they are expensive than the parts bought from the salvage yards. Rather than opting for the new automotive parts which cost a fortune in most of the cases, it is a better option to select the used car parts as one can be sure of finding the parts which offer better value of money. When procuring the automotive parts, do not be shy of taking help from a friend or family member, as their experience will help in buying the sound automotive parts.
