not trying to be a downer but you should really just take your tire to a shop... it'll cost you maybe $5-10 more than the shitty fix-a-flat or the plug kit to get your tire repaired professionally and permanently. I know this because I'm a Firestone mechanic and i usually do at least one patch per day. The method shown here can hold for years if you are lucky. You could also hit a pothole and it'll blow out right away ( actually happened to my mom whom i had to go rescue on a lunch break). A tire shop will take your tire off, and put in a patch and plug combo. We also use an die grinder to smooth the hole from the inside, apply galvanizing cement, stitch the plug and seal it with bead sealer. It's a PERMANENT repair. Plugs come out all the time, and for the price of the patch, it's inexpensive enough to just take to a shop. They will also balance the tire for you (at least we do at firestone), which you cannot do at home
(1) Using a block of wood on your jack is dangerous as it may crack. Always use steel on steel. Never wood on steel or wood on aluminum.
(2) The tire only needs to be a few inches off the ground not 3-feet!
(3) Wood for the tires to prevent them from rolling is of course a good idea.
Any ideas on how to do an emergency plug repair on Tesla’s Continental Run Silent Tires? They have a thick foam pad the covers the entire inner surface of the tire, thus preventing the rope plug from making a proper seal on the inside of the tire.
I think that changing a flat should be demonstrated by every candidate driver before they are licensed. That will keep mechanical idiots off the road and will force manufacturers to supply better quality jacks and wrenches.
I really suggest that you carry a breaker bar (a long one) and the right socket for your lugs, you also might need an extension (generally a short one) in your car. You can buy one fairly cheap at harbor freight or some such. Short of that, a piece of steel pipe that will fit over the wrench that came with the car will give you a little more grunt, be careful here, some of the original equipment wrenches can't take much twist. This goes double if you drive a truck or a SUV, those nutz are on with over 120 ft/lbs of torque, most guys will need a 20" or 24" breaker to 'break' these especially if they've been on for a while. Girls might want to bring their boyfriend or father. Good idea too is to take these tools out now and then and inventory and wipe with an oily cloth, rusty tools are no fun. Another thing to carry is some cheap work gloves (cheap so you can toss if they get nasty) and a short roll of hand towels (carry is a zip bag). AAA membership will pay for itself with one flat.
Used to have a 07 kawasaki kfx400 fourwheeler, crazy power and got a puncture a few months after buying, patched it with a kit like this, and have never had an issue with it since. been nearly 11 years since and still fine
Part 3: it was a 2015 Toyota Venza XLE and almost a month after she purchased it a maintenance guy was not looking where he was driving and my mom accidentally hit him but he said it her even though It was not her fault! >:(. She had damage to her front bumper! and I almost broke my new iPhone se because of the idiotic man I was so furious and my mom was too.
Part 2: I said “my neck was hurting badly!” And the truck driver was so sad and sorry. My mom was thankful he was sorry she forgave him my mom called 911 and they almost had to take me to the hospital but my mom said that try an ice pack first. The next day my neck was in even worse condition and I had to miss school and I went a doctors office and they said I was not injured I was relieved almost a month after the crash my mom had got a new crossover
On 8.15.2018 my mother’s 2012 Toyota Corolla LE got rear ended badly we both survived this was after I got a haircut the crash was caused by a dumb woman because she in a hatchback and she hit the brakes too early my mom barely had enough time to brake and a pickup driver was driving too fast and accidentally wrecked my moms vehicle my drink flew everywhere. I was surprised how the fuel tank was not ruptured and no axles were broken.she only had a headache and I got my neck seriously hurt and the family cupcakes were destroyed.
Just so everyone knows if you patch your tire the way he did and then later try to get it fixed at a tire shop they will refuse to fix it. Those are supposed to be last resort. If you can use your spare to get to a tire shop then do so. It’s only like 20 bucks to get it fixed if not free
Plugs are a temporary fix and usually destroy the tire. Any good tire shop won't patch it after a plug was done. Plugs are just to get you where you're going as a last ditch effort before getting a tow.
You should do a video on how to preform an internal patch. They are quite easy and much safer.
+ChrisFix Harbor freight has some cheap hand bead separators. True on low profile or sport tires you won't be able to get them off by hand, but even with access to the machine it's usually easier to just press the tire on by hand and pop it off real quick with the tire iron. Also only one bead needs to come off for a patch.
You are correct, plugs "usually" are fine for a long time. When they are not they can be quite dangerous. I've seen one blow out of a tire across the room, and the tire didn't even have weight on it.
I love the videos and am not saying you're wrong. Just think a patch video would be a great addition to this one!
Fix a flat is very good if you are on the side of a dangerous place like interstates or busy highways. Changing a tire to a spare can be deadly if you are struck by a fast moving vehicle. Using these types of inflators is great if you need to get out of a dangerous place fast. It is better to quickly inflate and drive to a less populated road than it is to try to change out to your spare. Life is worth sacrificing a tire or even a wheel. If you are on a very busy road and don't have anything to get you to a safe place... drive on the damn wheel. Your life is worth the extra cash you will spend replacing a wheel or even less a tire. Screw what anyone tells you! Get to a safe place, either far off the shoulder of a highway or to the nearest tire shop. I cannot tell you enough how important it is to repair a flat where it is safe. Ask any highway patrol or state trooper and they will tell you that your safety is worth more than any wheel or tire is.
This is good advice. If you carry these 3 options in your trunk you will never get a flat tire in the first place. My last can of air/sealant rusted and wouldn't spray. If by chance you do get a flat be forewarned they come in 3 or 4 at a time. BTW great video Chris. I like your advice to go check it out now or you will get a flat tomorrow.
who doesn't know how to change a tire i am 14 years old and i did an engine rebuild for my 1996 peugeot 406
Anunciado durante a Gamescom 2017, uma das maiores feiras de videogame do mundo, o remake de Secret of Mana é, desde o início, um projeto pensado para agradar aos fãs de longa data e atrair jogadores novatos com um gameplay mais acessível.
Não se engane: a versão 2018 de Secret of Mana está mais para uma recriação do que uma mera remasterização com pequeno ajustes gráficos. O que temos aqui é um jogo completamente atualizado, com personagens redesenhados que ganharam nova vida graças à estética cartunesca.
Se, por um lado, as mudanças visuais foram projetadas para atrair novatos, por outro, algumas pessoas podem torcer o nariz pela simplicidade da nova abordagem - especialmente no que diz respeito aos cenários e criaturas do mundo.
Os cenários coloridos, por exemplo, ainda que estejam bem representados, trazem pouca variedade e deixam game com cara de “jogo de celular”. Isso fica mais evidente pela estrutura do game, já que muitas áreas estão completamente vazias e monótonas. Nesse quesito, Secret of Mana não tem vantagem em ter o fator nostalgia a seu favor.
O remake utiliza a clássica perspectiva de visão aérea, com a câmera posicionada acima dos personagens. É possível arrastar as bordas da tela manualmente para ter uma visão mais ampla do ambiente, o que é bastante útil para momentos de exploração.
O brilho da era noventista, mas com ressalvas.
Antes de tudo, é importante ressaltar que não há legendas em português, então o melhor a fazer é jogar com textos em inglês. A história continua sendo o ponto mais alto de Secret of Mana e, novamente, coloca o jogador no controle de três adoráveis personagens: Randi, Primm e Popoi - é possível jogar em modo cooperativo local para até três usuários.
O objetivo do grupo é lutar contra um império traidor ao mesmo tempo em que tenta recuperar o poder da Mana para restaurar a paz. O grande problema é que, embora os gráficos estejam atualizados, as animações ficaram presas ao passado. Em vez de despertar o sentimento de nostalgia, a falta de capricho passa a impressão de que o remake foi feito às pressas.
A jogabilidade à la Zelda foi aprimorada e permite desferir ataques de qualquer ângulo. Os inimigos também demonstram mais inteligência, uma vez que agora eles têm a opção de atacar a partir de qualquer ponto do cenário.
Ainda que a movimentação esteja mais fluida, parece haver algum problema técnico relacionado ao impacto dos golpes. Isso porque há momentos em que o personagem simplesmente não acerta o ataque, mesmo posicionado a uma distância razoável do oponente.
Além disso, a interface dos menus ficou bem aquém do esperado, com abas confusas e muito mal posicionadas. Há, no entanto, uma opção de mapear os itens essenciais nos botões do joystick ou teclado, o que facilita muito a organização na hora de combates mais exigentes.
O remake de Secret of Mana mantém a essência da pérola dos RPGs de ação dos anos 90, mas comete muitos deslizes ao tentar mexer em time que está ganhando. Menus engessados, sistema de combate com problemas técnicos e animações presas ao passado impedem o relançamento de ser a experiência definitiva, apesar de que possa valer para quem nunca experimentou o jogo original.
