Re: Another Heater Horror Story

That´s a GOOD idea!  Turning around a problem instead of colliding with it. Great!...

Now, would you be so kind to tell us the brand and model of valve you got to fix your car please?

(quite a few people will thank you).

Best Regards.

Actually, turning your roters instead of replacing will give you seasoned rotors that will less likely warp than new ones.  (IMHO)

But once you turn rotors, they are thinner, and that makes them more likely to warp from heat.  Best to just leave them alone.  As long as you never let them wear down to metal on metal, there is never a reason to turn or replace.  I have also seen them turned where the brake lathe did not center them as well as it should have, and created a vibration that was not there before.
