The problem is sometimes buying auto parts is not easy. You could wander here and there in search of the desired product, but there are times you can't find exactly what you need. It's good to know that the online market is one place that offers a wide range of products for cars, too.

In today’s world, you can purchase almost anything over the internet. One of the most rapidly growing markets is auto parts.  If you want to buy your needed car parts, check out and find the product you need.

Auto parts Buying Guide

Before you buy the auto parts you need online, there are certain factors you should be aware of.
First, call your local dealer and tell them what you need.  Get the price of the auto parts and compare it with other retailers’ prices. Then compare the auto parts' prices online.. In addition, consider these three points discussed below:

1. Service contract

Is the company position trustworthy? What type of guarantee does the seller offer if they offer any? If you purchase an expensive part with no warranty and it goes bad, you are out of pocket for the purchase amount for its replacement, will they compensate and send you the new product? Do they pay for shipping? How long is the warranty good for? How many miles is the warranty good for? These and other things are important to know.

All of the car parts including Turbo, Fuel Pumps, Diesel injector pumps, Wheel Hubs, Air Conditioning Parts, Injector Driver modules, and everything that the company sells should come with a one-year, unlimited mileage warranty at no extra charge.

2. Customer Care

You have found the part you need with what seems like a good warranty, but you still have a few questions you want answered before buying. Does the company offer a phone number that you can contact or is it just an e-mail that you have to wait and hope someone responds to?

A warranty is only useful when you can contact the company. The company from where you are ordering the product should answer your questions or issues. The goal of a company is to make their customers happy and do its best to satisfy them.

3. Company’s Reliability

Check for consumer reviews or feedback. This is something that is very easy to find on the Web/ Internet. If the seller has a great feedback rating with thousands of satisfied customers, you know that the seller takes care of their customers and you can rest easy about a purchase. Do your research in the best possible manner to avoid any future problems and frauds.

I hope the tips you read from this buying guide can help you find the right products you need.

It's my hubby who's usually in charge of our car so I have no experience at all buying auto parts anywhere. I think he usually buys in auto shops as well. But it's good to know that these things are now available online too.

I don't know anything about cars but I think your tips are helpful. My husband is actually convincing me to try to learn how to drive. But I think I can't do it, hehe.

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
