Why Wonít My Car Start?

May 05, 2015 - 2:11 PM - by

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car wonít start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Hereís a list with ten common reasons why cars donít start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Instituteís Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. Heís certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if thereís something wrong with your car, chances are heís seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isnít starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customerís eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicleís failure to run.'

Scion iA Announced as Brandís First Sedan

Apr 01, 2015 - 12:52 PM - by

A brand dedicated to quirky niche models, Scion is now preparing to launch its first ever sedan.

The Toyota division is teasing the new four-door as well as a new compact hatchback, both of which will debut at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

The all-new iA will be the first sedan in Scionís lineup and will be based on the Mazda 2 sedan. Scion will also pull the sheet off the iM, a hatchback thatís based on the European Toyota Auris.

Scion is aiming both cars at young buyers with aggressive styling, although donít expect a hot hatch. Power for the iM is said to come from the same 1.8-liter 4-cylinder found in the Corolla, while the iA is expected to use the 1.5-liter four-cylinder SkyActiv engine found in the 2016 Mazda 2.

The iA will also be sold in Canada but badged as a Toyota Yaris Sedan.

Both the iA and iM will be revealed on March 31, 2015, the eve of the New York Auto

2016 Scion iM Seeks to Lure Young Drivers

Apr 01, 2015 - 10:01 AM - by

The past six years havenít been kind to Scion at all, but Toyota is hoping to turn things around for its youth-oriented brand starting with a car called the iM.

Itís a new five-door hatchback based on the Toyota Auris, packaged with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine connected to either a six-speed manual transmission or a CVT. The powertrain generates 137 hp and an undisclosed measurement of torque that are sent to the front wheels. Models with the CVT also come with paddle shifters that can cycle through seven predefined ratios meant to mimic actual gears.

Scion hopes to attract young customers with the iM. Like the rest of itís products, they offer one trim package to create a WYSIWYG approach to car sales. Just in case you didnít grow up on a steady diet of Internet junk food, thatís an acronym for 'What You See Is What You Get.'

Anyway Scion packages it with a standard equipment list that includes 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone
