A window shield is a protective material that fits inside of vehicles on the dashboard. Another name for this is a sunshade. It`s used to maintain a comfortable temperature inside your car by absorbing UV rays from the sun.
A couple things to keep in mind: Fit: Make sure that any replacement sun visor you purchase is designed to fit your specific make and model. The packaging or product description should tell you the year models it is designed to work with. Color: Your car`s sun visors are colored to accentuate the interior color scheme.
There are several variants of car sun shade types. Typically, sun shields are made of a layer of mylar or aluminum foil which covers the inside of the car`s windows, to reflect the sun`s rays away, and preventing the interior from being exposed to those rays.
Typically, if a visor isn`t staying in place on a fixed mount, it`s an issue with the clips on the mounting bar that old the visor in place. To repair a loose visor on a fixed mount, simply tighten all of the screws holding the bar to the roof of the car and double check the visor clips.
A good car sun cover or shade can reduce cabin and dashboard temperatures by about 8% to 25%. That may not seem like much, but a 25% reduction in heat and the elimination of direct sun exposure to soft-touch plastics is significant.
Most modern cars have two sun visors, one for the driver`s side and a second for the passenger`s side, with the rear-view mirror often mounted in between the two sun visors. Each visor can be lowered to help block light from the sun entering through the windshield.
Lower the interior temperature: Blocking and reflecting the sun helps lower the buildup of heat inside your car. This makes it easier to breathe when you first enter the vehicle. Blocking direct sunlight also prevents you from burning yourself when you touch the seatbelt, steering wheel and gear shifter.
There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to whether a visor should go over or under your hair. Some people prefer to wear their visors over their hair so that their hair does not get in the way when they are trying to see.
It is important to install the sunshade properly to make sure that it works as intended. In general, the reflective or shiny surface should face outward and non-reflective models should have the black side facing inside the vehicle, toward the seats.

ANSWER : Hello, thank you for writing in. If the new battery has also failed to hold a charge, the alternator is likely not working correctly. You can test the alternator at home with a voltmeter, or you can remove it and have it tested at most automotive parts stores. It will need to be replaced if it has failed. You will also want to make sure all of the electrical connections are clean, dry, and tight. For more help testing or replacing the alternator, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.

Using E-15 fuel in my car do I need to use regular unleaded fuel maybe once in awhile or is it safe to continue to use the E-15?
ANSWER : E-15 is shorthand for gasoline blended with 15% Ethanol which is a fairly corrosive material which can cause damage to rubber parts and other critical parts over time. Ethanol also attracts and bonds with water from the air, and that water can separate out inside the tank due to phase separation. If your vehicle sits for long periods between use, the moisture settles to the bottom of the tank and can potentially clog in-tank pumps and filters. Damage is also possible in fuel lines, injectors, seals, gaskets, and valve seats as well as carburetors on older engines.

The main issue with respect to E-15 in many cases is whether or not the car will be covered under warranty from damage caused by using this product. GM and Ford have certified their own cars starting with 2012 (GM) and 2013 (Ford) to be compatible with E-15 and so some of the newer cars may not have any trouble with this.

I would not recommend using this fuel on longer drives where the chances of burning through an entire tank relatively quickly are greater. This may lessen the chance of excess E-15 fuel sitting in the bottom of your tank for longer periods of time where it may be prone to causing damage as outlined above.

If you run into any issues, feel free to contact YourMechanic, as one of our mobile technicians can come to your home or office to service your vehicle.

Can I add motor oil to my car now if I will not use the car for several days, or wait until the day I will use it?
ANSWER : I would add it now. This way you don’t drive it in a couple of days if you forget to put the oil in it. Better to be safe and add it now. If your vehicle leaks out oil without running the engine, or it leaks when you do run it, then have the car inspected to find the source of the leak so it can be repaired. YourMechanic can send a qualified technician to your home or work to pinpoint the source of your oil leak.

I have Spotify account can I use that in my new Prius with out useing it through my phone by just inputting my account number. How
ANSWER : Hello. According to my research it appears that Spotify can only be used with your vehicle by connecting it with your smartphone. Spotify can be used by connecting your phone to the vehicle via a USB cable, or by syncing it wirelessly via bluetooth. It does not appear that Spotify is offered as a standalone app for your vehicle’s entertainment system, though I would refer to your owner’s manual to verify if that is the case or not.

Can I use w2 40 if I been using 10w 40 on a 2004 Dodge neon
ANSWER : 20W40 is fine to use especially in warmer weather. The 20W40 oil is a higher viscosity, which means it is a bit thicker which will help it not to break down in high temperatures, which will cause it to lubricate the motor better. You should be fine with using this oil.

Do I really need to use high octane fuel or can I use mid grade (occasionally)?
ANSWER : If your vehicle is required to use high octane fuel, then using anything else can cause damage to the pistons and valves in the engine. When you say you cannot hear any pinging when you are using mid grade fuels then you need to be sure since not all pinging can be heard by the human ear. The pinging may be happening so light that you would not be able to hear it. Any pinging is not good to the engine and can burn holes in the tops of your piston. Pinging is the fuel is igniting before the engine wants it to and ignites before the ignition sparks it. This is why it is called pre-ignition. I recommend not using any mid or low octane fuels for this vehicle.
