How to Avoid Volkswagen Oil Sludge Buildup

How to Avoid Volkswagen Oil Sludge Buildup

How to Avoid Volkswagen Oil Sludge Buildup   When oil breaks down, it can form a thick, gooey substance called oil sludge. This sludge can build up in your engine, clogging oil passages and leading to serious engine problems. In order to prevent sludge buildup, it's important to understand how oil works in your engine.   Oil plays a vital role in keeping your engine cool and lubricated. As the oil circulates through the engine, it picks up heat from the cylinder walls and moving parts. The oil then carries this heat away from the engine, helping to keep it cool. Oil also lubricates the moving parts of the engine, reducing friction and wear.   Over time, however, oil breaks down and loses its ability to effectively cool and lubricate the engine. This is why it's important to change your oil regularly. When you do change your oil, be sure to use fresh oil that meets the sp ... read more

How to Fix an Illuminated Airbag Light in Kia Vehicle

Unlike other faulty components with several indicators, an illuminated airbag light on the dashboard is the only warning a driver gets for a defective airbag system. You don't want to be without the airbags during a collision. Although KIA's airbags have a long lifespan and can last more than 10 years (as your vehicle is not involved in a crash) some factors could still cause the airbag's failure. Causes of an Illuminated Airbag Light First, let's look at how an airbag works: The crash sensor sends a signal to an ignitor during a collision, which activates the airbags to cushion the vehicle occupants. The collision sensor is triggered based on the severity of the collision.
