Hi, thanks for all of the support from our early users. We want to create a destination site for all things cars, but I need your help to do so. What do you think we should add or change in the site? Thanks for participating in this great community!
I have an Acura Integra Type R that I've tried to tastefully modify, that means no fart can in the rear or other tacky "ricer" stuff like that. Because of my push to not do senseless modifications, I think everything through thoroughly before taking the plunge and installing a new part. I've pushed quite a bit of power from my car through bolt-on mods, and I want to help compensate by tightening up the handling. A friend of mine who usually knows a lot about cars suggested investing in several parts, including a rear wing that allows me to adjust the amount of downforce it generates. My car is has FWD, so would a big rear wing like that even do anything?
I have had a Wrangler for a few months, but just barely was able to clear my schedule so I can take it off-roading, finally. The place where I'm supposed to go is sandy, and I heard that with driving on sand you need to deflate your tires to maximize grip. It doesn't really seem safe to drive on the road with underinflated tires, which was why I was going to let the air out once I reach the sandy area. The big question I have is how do I inflate the tires again? I have a bicycle pump, but I doubt that would really work.
I have a 1992 Toyota Camry that has cruise control on it. Normally, I stay in the city and don't use the cruise control. The other day I went on a fairly long trip and used it, but it didn't work. I have no idea when it stopped working or why. I really don't want to take my car to the mechanic, so is there anything simple I can do to hopefully fix it?
I have a 2004 Nissan Altima that I have racked up almost 200,000 miles on. The car still runs strong even though it's not as glamorous as it used to be. Lately, though, a weird problem has come up. The radio will just turn itself on randomly, including when the key isn't in the ignition. This is a real problem, because once it ran down the battery and left me stranded. I now have to turn the radio completely off before turning off the engine, otherwise I run the risk of the radio killing the battery again. Does anyone know what is going on?
My Jeep Wrangler has a 258 engine in it, but I heard that the 4.0L head from the TJs is much better. Is there some sort of a way to make the smaller head work on my engine? I found one at a junk yard and it's really cheap, but I don't want to screw up my engine for a cheap head. Any advice?
I just bought a motor home and wanted to tow my Jeep Wrangler behind it so that I have a smaller, capable vehicle to drive around in the forest or wherever I am. I don't own a trailer, but was wondering if I can tow my Jeep with all four tires on the road?
I've noticed that my car bounces like crazy whenever I hit a bump. The guy at the tire shop told me he saw my struts leaking like crazy, which I believe him since they don't replace struts. When I contacted my shop I found out they will charge close to a thousand dollars to replace the struts for me, but I don't have that kind of money. I looked online and saw that the parts are only about three hundred dollars. Is it really that hard to replace them?
I have a project Honda Civic Si that I've been working on. It's a 2012 and I've done a fair amount of bolt-on mods right now. I'm looking to go to the next level and install a turbocharger, but I'm having a little bit of trouble with the intercooler placement. I was wondering if I could create by own hood scoop to direct air to the intercooler? Do you all have any knowledge of how to do that?
I have a 2004 Audi A4 that had the check engine turn on, again. This has happened before and I've had a few sensors replaced. The cost with my mechanic has always been $80 plus the cost of the sensor and the little bit of labor to swap it out. When I picked up my car this last time, I found out that three sensors had to be replaced and the car was hooked up to the machine three times, costing $240! I'm seriously considering switching mechanics over this, because that seems excessive to me. What do you all think?
