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!

BAD TRANSMISSION Solenoids  then call  JUNK CAR BUYER AUSTIN 512-789-2177

SOLENOIDS are pretty much just tightly wound metal coils.  They're used in all sorts of machines, there are many in cars used for many different things including the starter. The starter solenoid receives two currents, a large electric current from the car battery and a small electric current from the ignition switch. When the key is turned to start the car the small electric current forces the starter solenoid to close a pair of heavy contacts and that relays the large current to the starter motor. Manual transmissions use the clutch to change gears but automatic transmissions use a complicated hydraulic system, and the transmission solenoids are essential for this process. 

 There are many solenoids in the transmission with many different jobs such as the transmission shift solenoid, lockup solenoid, or transmission control solenoid.  They open or close hydraulic valves and regulate fluid flow depending on the speed. The speed sensors around the engine activate the solenoids to increase or decease the fluid flow and in turn the speed

.In almost all vehicles it is a legal requirment to have some form of windsheild wiper and yet it is a commonly overlooked aspect of car care.  The blades of teh wiper are like a squeege, they pull the flat peice of rubber flush across the glass of the windsheild to clear away water and snow.  But this is common knowledge, but many people don't know what actually has happened to the wipers when they aren't working anymore. 

 As the rubber gets older and is used more and more nicks and imperfections form on the edge of the rubber, when this happens it becomes harder for the wiper to form a clean seal against the windsheild and that's how we get streaks.  Another way you might be getting streaks is if you have an uneven amount of pressure throught the blade.  A ot of times this can happen when snow or ice sit on the blade and weigh it down in different areas.

In theory we would just push down harder or smoothing down that edge and our wipers could last much longer than they currently do but our cars our not programmed to use more force as our wipers age and it is not common car care to wipe the edge of your wipers.
