asked me if I'm willing to post an artikel from his hand about the danger of Asbestos... of course.

Hidden Dangers In Your Car

Many enthusiasts love having their dream cars that could be vintage cars. When most people get in their cars, they put their seat belts on and check their mirrors. Today, many drivers even have rear-view safety cameras they can consult before operating their vehicle in reverse to make sure their path is clear. Even though most drivers are aware of and protect against the expected dangers related to their automobiles, what about the unexpected dangers? Here, learn about some of the hidden dangers that may be lurking in your car right now.Older vehicles may be the worst culprit when it comes to the hidden dangers of automobiles. Though new cars can and do contain toxic substances, as well, the focus here will be on classic cars. One of the biggest dangers to be aware of when it comes to classic cars is asbestos. Asbestos exposure to which can cause a lung disease called mesothelioma, is often found in the brake systems of older cars such as drum brakes. Though most car manufacturers have switched to a substitute material by now, asbestos is still found in many older or classic cars. The only way to know for sure if your vehicle has asbestos in the brake lines.... is to do your research; contact the manufacturer directly for the best information regarding your specific make and model before performing work on your brake system.

Asbestos exposure is widely thought to result in mesothelioma, but it isn't the only hidden danger in automobiles. Though the pollution that comes out of our vehicles' exhaust pipes for others to breathe is closely monitored, what about the pollutants that we may be breathing in inside our own cars? Benzene is one such potentially harmful substance. Benzene fumes may off-gas from such benign parts of your car as the dashboard, carpet, steering wheel and upholstery. For this reason, drivers should air their vehicles out when first entering them. Before turning on the air or heat systems, drivers are advised to roll their windows down for a few minutes. This is to prevent the benzene build-up from being circulated through the air system and, especially in the case of heating, the toxicity being amplified.

Besides asbestos and benzene, other potentially harmful substances, such as chlorine, bromine, arsenic and mercury, are also present inside various cars at varying levels. Over time, the build up of and exposure to these compounds can lead to health concerns. To get the best information on your specific vehicle, contact the manufacturer and ask what chemicals may be present in your car. If you are concerned about how a specific health condition may be related to your automobile, please consult your physician.

  2. For installing the chip, just find the 28 pin chip marked as “M38256AP-xx” (see the picture bellow). It must be unsoldered and replaced with the 28-pin chip socket, and then the new
    crx chip for car must be inserted on it. Make sure that you align the chip so pin #1 goes to the same place of the old chip (lower left corner of the chip in the picture bellow). No other parts are needed on these models. After inserting the chip, just put the ecu back together and reinstall it in your car.
