Why Titles to Vehicles are Important in Texas and How To Get One

Posted on March 27, 2021 at 3:14 PM Comments comments (0)
WHY VEHICLE TITLES ARE IMPORTANT WHEN SELLING YOUR CAR IN TEXAS



 The title to the vehicle is important because it’s the only way to prove you own that car, so you have the right to sell it. Even if you’ve been driving a car for sometime and have the keys to it, that doesn’t prove ownership. When you decide to sell a car or a truck in Texas you should contact Junk Car Buyer Austin at 512-789-2177, but make sure you have the title to the vehicle. How do you get the title to a vehicle That depends on how you got the car or truck in the first place. When you buy a new car from a dealer, you have to pay a small fee and the state will send you the title to the car within a few weeks. When you buy a used car from the previous owner, they will have to transfer the title to you. Again, for a small fee the state, or more exactly your local DMV, will issue a new title with you as the owner. Since this is the most important legal document proving ownership of the car you should always keep it somewhere safe, as you will certainly need it when you want to sell or junk your car anywhere in the state of Texas.

What can you when you no longer have the title to the car There are various reasons people don’t have the title to the car they want to sell, maybe they’ve lost it or maybe it’s your late Grandpa’s clunker and no one knows what happened to the title. In this case, it is preferable to contact your local DMV and sort this thing out before trying to sell the vehicle. Obviously, if the car is still in good shape and you want to sell it to another person, you will need to transfer ownership of the vehicle to them and you cannot do that without a title. At the same time, when the car is a total wreck and you wander who buys junk cars in Austin, Texas, you should try to get a hold of the missing title first. If you’ve misplace the title, you should contact the local DMV and ask for a replacement title. 

With the current Covid pandemic restrictions, you should be able to do this online. If there is lien on the title, you should secure the lienholder’s release, whether it’s a bank or a lending institution. Why having the title to the car matters It matters to you most of all, because you will get more money on the car if you have the title to it, even if you sell it to a junkyard. Without a title to the car there’s little they can do with it, but salvage reusable parts. Sometimes, this is the only option if the car is wrecked, but with a newer model and a still running car you cannot expect a good price if you don’t have the title to it.

Why Cars Only Last 10 Or So Years?

Most often, used car dealers won't consider your vehicle if it's not a highly desired model and if it has crossed elevated miles or has other issues. Even if you discover anyone who wants to buy your junk car, you will probably not receive the expected market value.
As a junk car buyer Austin, I am confident to declare that Japanese cars last longer than American cars. There are many reasons why these cars only last 10 or so years. Japanese cars are much more dependable than their American and European contemporaries. A study revealed that American cars start off as sluggish in dependability but reach the level of Japanese cars in their tenth year. Japanese automobiles have become a robust industry standard. Many decades ago, that wasn't the situation. Throughout history, the Japanese have undergone various transformations. They were able to improve their quality assurance procedures. This provided a significant boost to their economy. Quality is key to sales in the dynamic automotive manufacturing industry.
Currently, in America and Europe, Toyota and other Asian automakers are major stars. These automobiles help people safely and easily reach their destinations. From a logistical perspective, moving their manufacturing facilities to North America already provides an even greater sense for Manufacturing companies. This approach was taken, and most of its plants relocated to North America by Toyota is among the few. Since Toyota cars have a massive market in the North American market. It makes only economic sense to produce the product where it is most requested. In this case, America has the most demand for these.

What does “four cylinder” mean anyway?

When you talk about cars, “cylinders” comes up often.  Four-cylinder usually comes up with smaller cars and is thought to be economical but not exactly powerful.  Eight-cylinder comes up around men’s wagging tails and is usually associated with power and speed.  But what exactly is a cylinder and what does it do for the car?

Long story short, a combustion engine works by pushing gas into a chamber - you guessed it- the cylinder, mixing it with air and then blowing it up.  Now don’t panic, the car is not going to blow up.  These explosions are tiny and expertly timed (that’s another article) to make the engine work.  This process repeats over and over as the cylinders move up and down.  The process can be broken down into four parts:

·       Intake:  Inside the cylinder is a piston.  The piston strokes down on a rack that moves kind of like a bicycle pedal.  The downward movement draws the air and fuel into the cylinder.  At the bottom of the stroke, the valve closes, holding the air and fuel inside.

·       Compression:  The piston then strokes up in the cylinder and compresses the mixture according to the compression ratio of the engine.  Ratios range from 8:1 to 10:0 for the most part, meaning the mix is getting squashed to a tenth of it’s original volume.  Ratio varies, but the point is it's getting tight in there.
·       Power:  The fun part.  At the top of the cylinder there’s a spark plug which does just that: sparks.  The spark ignites the gas and the explosion makes the compressed mixture get lots bigger.  The expansion of the vapor creates enough force when it pushes the piston down the cylinder that it turns the crank shaft to move the car. 
·       Exhaust:  The clean-up.  If you behaved like I did as a child, you know blowing things up makes a bit of a mess.  Vapor is no different.  Your cylinder is now full of burned gas, aka exhaust.  When the piston is at the bottom of the cylinder, the exhaust valve opens letting the exhaust out to the exhaust system.  This is super pressurized and loud as it rushes out, sort of like the car version of a loud fart, warranting the muffler on the exhaust system.  As the piston moves up the cylinder, it chases out the remaining exhaust in preparation to start the whole thing over again.

This happens in each cylinder, each at a different time.  This is the firing order.  Firing order and timing are a whole other topic, but the Reader’s Digest version is:Each cylinder will have fired once to turn the crank shaft two times.  So more cylinders, more “pushes” per turn. Not faster, but more oomph.  This is what burns your gas, so fewer cylinders may mean better fuel economy, dependent on factors such as weight.  Obviously, it takes more power to push an older car made of heavy steel than a car made of newer, lighter materials.    

AUSTIN CAR BUYER ** 512-789-2177 ** - BAD STRUTS

Posted on September 24, 2015 at 10:49 AM Comments comments (0)
BAD STRUTS
Struts are the main component of a modern independent suspension system; they are what suspend the body and frame of your vehicle above the wheels. All the weight of your vehicle rests on your struts, which transfer the weight, via several other components. Struts need to be replaced if any of the three components wear out. Struts are not often thought of as a normal replacement item. Since struts are in continual use as you drive, bearing the whole weight of your vehicle, it should not be surprising that their components wear out over time. Struts have at least two components: a spring and a shock absorber – and many have a third: the swivel mount. strut failure is usually very gradual you may never notice it at all. But certainly if you are experiencing any of the symptoms your struts are due for replacement.

 Failed mounts are the easiest to recognize of the three because they usually make the most noise. Failed mounts often cause a popping or clicking noise while you’re turning the steering wheel, because the bearing inside is bad. Especially if you can put the vehicle in park and the noise remains while turning the wheel, strut mounts are your number one suspect. Failed shock absorbers can be harder to notice. With oil-filled struts, external leaks are easy to spot, especially if the leak is rapid. But if it is a very slow leak, it may never be noticed, and with gas-filled struts, external leaks are not identifiable at all. But usually struts don’t fail completely, and usually not all at once. Shock absorber wear creeps up as the internal seals lose their sealing capacity slowly. You won’t notice the difference from one day to the next, but there is probably a minute daily decline in the performance of your shock absorbers as they age. If the failure progresses to a severe stage, drivers may notice several kinds of problems: too much “trampoline effect”, tire noise and vibration from cupping caused by excessive up/down movement, excessively harsh riding over bumps, or noise on every bump from too much suspension travel. If you car is experiencing these problems, you’ve really gone too long. 

New shocks and struts can make you stop up to 10 feet sooner, while providing increased vehicle stability and better driver control

MILEAGE INFORMATION

Write your post here.The pluses and minuses of adding mileage to your vehicle.
Employer Reimbursement for mileage
Current Mileage Rates according to the Internal Revenue Service:
Beginning on Jan. 1, 2014, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car (also vans, pickups or panel trucks) will be:
·        56 cents per mile for business miles driven
·        23.5 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes
·        14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable orginizations
 
Wear and tear on vehicle
Mileage decreases the value of a car. Even if the car is a newer year model the vehicle lessens quickly in value with high mileage.  (The higher the mileage the more wear on the parts.)
Sometimes it's less cost prohibitive in the long run to rent a vehicle for long road trips vs. using your own car to avoid adding higher mileage to your car, which decreases the total value.
Regardless of whether the miles you add are highway or city, it still adds up to motor and parts usage.

Summertime Vehicle Preparation

There are several things you can do to improve the performance and safety of your vehicle.  Spring rain and the summer heat can wreak havoc on a vehicle if you aren't properly prepared.

Windshield Wipers and Fluids:

It's always a good idea to check windshield wipers year round.
Moisture and dust can prevent blades from operating when needed.  Make sure to check for worn rubber on the wiper blades and wash your vehicle regularly to prevent dusty buildup. Also, check the washer fluid reservoir to ensure there is plenty of fluid.  (Bugs, dust and other build up on the windshield can pose a safety hazard as they block your view.)

Oil and Oil Filter:

Check your vehicle manual and ask your mechanic how often you should change your oil and oil filter and what type of oil to use for  your vehicle.  In order for your vehicle to perform optimally based upon your vehicle use, check with your mechanic to find out ways to enhance your vehicle performance. Summertime heat usually means less rain and increased dusts in the air. Keep your filter from clogging by checkingit regularly.

Coolant System:

Have your mechanic check the level, condition and concentration of your coolant fluids to prevent vehicle overheating. Belts, hoses and clamps should also be checked to ensure there is no damage preventing the coolant system from working properly.

Other Important Vehicle Components:

Air and fuel filter
Brake fluid/brake pads and shoes
Power steering fluid
Tires - Check tread and sidewalls for any nicks, nails or unusual wear.
Air condition system
Battery (clean terminals)
These are just some of the things you can do to optimize your vehicles running condition in the summertime. Professional car-care centers will have a checklist that you and your mechanic can use as a guide.

These will help your Austin, Round Rock, car or truck in best running order so that you will not have to call our tow truck and buying service sooner than you need to.  If your car does fail call THE JUNK CAR BUYER FOR PRICES AT 512-789-2177

BLOWN HEAD GASKET

The most common mechanical problem we receive regarding non-working vehicles is a blown head gasket.  The head gasket sits between the engine block and cylinder head in an internal combustion engine. The purpose of a head gasket is to seal the cylinders to ensure maximum compression and avoid leakage of coolant and oil into the cylinders. Power reduction and white smoke are two of the results seen when a head gasket is blown.  The biggest mistake people make is to keep driving the vehicle which increases the amount of damage to the engine.  

Why does it cost so much to fix a blow head gasket? The majority of the cost will be labor as it requires pulling the engine apart to replace the gasket. Oftentimes people call and tell us that it only cost ______ to purchase a new head gasket.  I always have to explain the depth of labor involved and that the average person does not have the tools nor the know how to replace the head gasket.

A mechanic must remove the cylinder head from the engine block to expose the head gasket.  Once exposed, the mechanic will look for damage to the head and block to determine the cause of the blown head gasket. Upon inspection, he will clean and brush the surface to remove any debris.  Then, the head gasket is replaced and the engine put back together. So, next time you purchase a vehicle, be sure to thoroughly research the pros and cons of what goes wrong mechanically with the vehicle. If you have a vehicle that has a blown-head gasket, please call us if you find out that the cost to repair the vehicle, including the labor of the mechanic,  is more than the car is worth.
