If one is often subjected to brooding spells over the likes of a GM car model, one may be the victim of a GM Multi Rib Belt abuse or of a GM Catalytic Converter disaster. One need not fear such things though. It is easy enough to replace such parts: this is the good news.
Never buy a car you haven’t driven. It is easier to inspect a car on level ground. That way you can tell if the car sits level. If the car you are inspecting is parked on uneven ground try to park it somewhere more level after you take it for a test drive.

Most wheels today have wear indicators that make it easy to identify when they need to be replaced. If you’re unable to see indicator bars, you can buy a tread-depth gauge for a few dollars at any auto supply store. Simply stick the gauge into each of your tires’ grooves every three or four weeks. Once they wear down to 2/32 of an inch, it’s time to replace them. If you drive in inclement weather, you might consider replacing them when they reach 4/32 of an inch.
Whenever you check the oil and transmission fluid, take a look at your battery and clean the posts, when necessary. Most auto supply stores have a special wire-based cleaning tool you can purchase for under $10.
When a car burns fuel gases are produced. They must be removed so that new fuel can be burned. The pistons in the engine’s cylinders force gas out of the engine. It passes through a muffler into tail pipes. The muffler also keeps the car running quietly. For about thirty years cars have been equipped with a scrap O2 sensor recycling. It reduces pollution by converting harmful gases into carbon dioxide and water.
How many miles does it already have on it? If you’re looking for a specific make and model of car, do your home work and see what total milage that car is good for in its life time. Also look for what kind of gas milage to expect, and were there any recalls for that car that year.
