Tips for junking your car 
If you have an old useless car, there’s no point in keeping it in the garage. What are you waiting for? It’s not like it’s going to come back to life or maybe it could, but the cost of extensive repairs simply isn’t worth it. Your best option is to sell it for scraps and be done with it.  
Here are are a few things to keep in mind when you finally decide to junk the old car. 
Look for free towing 
The first step is to find a junk car buyer, and not just any junk car buyer. You want to make some profit off the old thing, right? Go online and look for a junk car buyer in your area of course call Junk Car Buyer Austin at 512-789-2177.  
You’ll want a place that is not far from you, but most of all you should look for a business that offers free towing. That’s very important, because some junk car buyers might charge you for this service more than it is worth it. And, of course, that cost will come out of what they’re offering for your clunker.  
Describe the state of your car accurately 
When you contact Junk Car Buyer Austin, make sure you describe your old car as accurately as possible, to prevent any misunderstanding. If your car is totally wrecked, say so. On the other hand, if the car is still in working condition make sure to mention that.  Buyers are interested in still usable cars.  Other vehicles may be just for salvage and they sell the usable parts off of them. 
Be sure to send them some photos, so they know exactly what they’re buying and how much they’re willing to give you. If you don’t, you might be in for a nasty surprise. When the pickup driver shows up, you don’t want to get into an argument if they discover your car is in a worse state then they thought. 
If you provide a full description and some photos, you can be fairly certain they will pay the agreed price, no ifs and buts. 
Ask for cash or company check in hand 
That’s usually the best option. If they agree to pay on pickup you can be certain they won’t come up with any pretext to lower the price. Also, you don’t want to waste any more time when conducting what is essentially a very simple transaction. 
Try to locate the title to the car 
Technically, you might still be able to sell the old thing even without the title but not in Texas.  You need a title to sell your car in Texas.  Look up where you can retrieve the missing title in your area and have it on hand when you contact a junkyard.  Texas regional office of DMV is the place to start.  With covid, they are requesting one make an appointment online to visit their office and get title, otherwise you can get your title online.  
Remove personal items from the car 
You wouldn’t believe how many people forget such a basic thing. You don’t want to have to drive down the next day to retrieve your kid’s skateboard left in the trunk. Check the car thoroughly, from the glove compartment to the trunk, and don’t forget to look under the chairs. 
Arrange for a convenient pickup 
This refers to both time and place. A reputable junk car buyer will offer same day or next day pickup, because sometimes people are in hurry. If that is not the case for you, pick a convenient day and time so you can go about your business without having to wait. If your wrecked car is at the mechanics, you can arrange for the pickup to take place there.  
Just make sure you’re there at the appointed time, sign the papers, get your money and be done with it. Time to move on!

The job of a car suspension is to maximize the friction between the tires and the road surface, to provide steering stability with good handling and to ensure the comfort of the passengers. Suspension systems serve a dual purpose — contributing to the vehicle's road holding/handling and braking for good active safety and driving pleasure, and keeping vehicle occupants comfortable and a ride quality reasonably well isolated from road noise, bumps, and vibrations. After supporting several tons of metal year after year, eventually the shocks will wear out and suspension repair will be necessary.  

Having a bad suspension can greatly affect your ability to control the vehicle, especially when stopping or turning, so it's in your best interest not to ignore this part of auto maintenance. How do you know when it's time for suspension repair? Here are 5 sighs to look for. Car rides rough, drifting or pulling during turns, dips or nose dives when stopping, uneven tire tread, damage oily shocks. Any four wheel vehicle needs suspension for both the front wheels and the rear suspension, but in two wheel drive vehicles these can be very different configuration.  The design of front and rear suspension of a car may be different. In its most basic form, suspension consists of two basic components: Springs and shock absorbers. Springs come in three types; they are coil springs, torsion bars and leaf springs. Shock absorbers dampen the vertical motion induced by driving your car along a rough surface and so should technically be referred to by their proper name - dampers. 

If your car only had springs, it would boat and wallow along the road. Shock absorbers perform two functions. They absorb any larger-than-average bumps in the road so that the upward velocity of the wheel over the bump isn't transmitted to the car chassis. But secondly, they keep the suspension at as full a travel as possible for the given road conditions.

A slave cylinder is a very important part of a clutch system in a manual transmission car.  It can either be lengthened or shortened. This will push on another cylinder or changes the pressure of fluid from one place to another having an effect on a moving part like the breaks or clutch. Sometimes there’s a chain of cylinders working together all commanded by the first one at the beginning of the line which is called the master cylinder. While the clutch cylinder works the gears when it’s pressed is called the slave cylinder, there are many different types of slave cylinders found in different parts on the car but perform the same function. They can be found in the brake system, wheels and power steering system.
