Going Back Up After Going Bankrupt

Filing for bankruptcy is a difficult decision that can create ripples in your life for years to come. Even though it’s a tough choice to make, sometimes it’s the only viable option available. After you’ve filed for bankruptcy, it’s time for you to start rebuilding your life and rebuilding your credit. Re-establishing credit after bankruptcy doesn’t have to be as difficult as you think as long as you know what you’re doing.

 

One of the best ways to start rebuilding your credit is to visit a bank or credit union to get a secured credit card. With a secured card, you’ll have to deposit some money for the bank or credit union to hold and in turn they’ll meet the amount of the deposit for your credit limit. Make sure that you do your homework in order to avoid expensive fees that you have to pay upfront. Sometimes banks and credit unions might charge you as much as $200 just to open your secured credit card. You’ll also want to make sure that the credit union or bank that you get your card with reports to the top credit bureaus in order for you to start building your credit back up. If the financial institution doesn’t report to the top credit bureaus, then you’ll want to find one that does.

 

If you aren’t comfortable with a secured credit card, consider an unsecured credit card where you don’t have to put up any of your money in order to open your account. The higher the credit limit on your secured credit card, the better. But again, be sure to find out about upfront fees. In order to quickly re-establish your credit after bankruptcy, make sure that you pay off your credit card every month or within a few months.

 

Getting your financial life back to normal after you’ve filed for bankruptcy is only as difficult as you make it. Educate yourself, take your time and make wise decisions and you’ll be back on solid financial ground before you know it.   If you have gone bankrupt and are looking for a bad credit car loan in Regina, Loan Doctor in Regina can get you approved for  financing.

Tips For Understanding The Engine

Many of our customers tell us that they have little or no experience maintaining the engines of their used cars. These customers are often concerned when they hear unusual noises coming from the engines or when they think their engines are not functioning as efficiently as they once were.

We’re here to reassure all of our used car customers of a few things: first, we have inspected every used car engine of the used cars that we sell to be sure that they are durable and will last for years to come. Second, we have a warranty that covers many issues that are related to issues that can occur on used cars. Often, these issues have to do with normal wear and tear and are simple fixes.

Here are a few engine components that we often have to work on with used cars – and all cars – but that are often covered by warranties:

Radiator

The radiator is located under the hood of your car behind the body. In this engine component, hot coolant enters the radiator, circulates through the radiator system, and is recirculated back into the engine after it is cooled. Radiators can sometimes leak, causing cooling difficulties in the engine. Come on in if you think you have a radiator leak; we’ll take care of that for you right away before your engine overheats.

Fuse box

Like any major electrical machine, the machine has to have electricity to operate. The electricity in a car engine is controlled by a fuse box, which is usually located under the hood with other engine parts, but you may also find the fuse box underneath the dash board of your vehicle. Sometimes fuses blow, which requires that you replace it. We always recommend that customers carry extra fuses with them in case this happens. However, if you feel uncomfortable replacing fuses on your own, please feel free to bring your used car in for our technicians to take a look at it and safely replace any blown fuses.

Valves

You’ll notice that there are several valves in your engine. Valves usually control the air intake and then let out hot gases from exhaust. Sometimes valve covers leak, which may mean that you have a bad gasket or a loose cover.
