My son is turning 16 and I want to get him something fun to drive. My wife thinks we should get him something slow and boring, like an old Ford Taurus wagon. I remember being a teenager and how mortified I'd be driving something like that. The basic new Wranglers are cheap and pretty tough, plus they're fun. I think it'd be a good first car, but my wife thinks the idea is "stupid." What do you all think?
I feel like my parents always ignored the check engine light growing up. It recently came on in our truck, and my husband is constantly worrying about it and asking me to take it somewhere to get it checked. What happens/where can I take it, and how much does it cost?
I have a project C3 Corvette that I don't really have the time or money to work on right now. I was looking it over the other day and realized that mice have been nesting in it! There were droppings, debris, all of that. I also found that one of the wiring harnesses had been chewed through, so I have to replace it. Is there anything I can do to keep the mice away?
What's the size of the lift kit and the tire specs?
I have a V-6 Accord that's a 2001. I had no idea when I bought the car that apparently the valves have to be adjusted by a mechanic periodically. The car right now has about 150,000 miles on it and the valves have never been adjusted. When my mechanic found out he wanted to do the job right away for $800. I don't have a ton of money right now since I'm still in school and work a job that pays horrible, so this is a huge deal for me. Can anyone tell me if my car really needs this work done or not?
I have a Jeep TJ and just bought a full set of 33-inch tires, including the spare, and I don't know where to put it. The thing doesn't fit on the stock spare mounting bracket. Does anyone know where I need to put it? I've seen them mounted to roofs and hoods before. Any help or ideas would be great.
I just bought new wheels for my C5 Corvette and the guy at the tire shop where I got them kept trying to get me to purchase some locking lug nuts. I don't live in an unsafe area or city, but the sales guy kept telling me how people were going to steal my nice wheels if they weren't locked on the car. I decided not to go with them, but now I'm wondering if I made the right decision. Have any of you ever had them? Were they worth it?
this is a test
I put a cold air intake in my Jetta VR6 like a year ago. I've cleaned the filter once since then, which was what I thought I was supposed to do. I just checked the filter and it's totally dirty, so much that I can shake it and dust will come falling out of it. Now I'm concerned that if the filter is that dirty, the inside of the intake is as well. Do I need to clean it?
My daily driver isn't anything special, just a 2001 Honda Civic. It needed some new spark plugs and ignition wires, so I bought some nice aftermarket replacements and installed them a few days ago. Yesterday I was sitting at a red light when all of the sudden the engine started rumbling and running really rough. I turned it off and popped the hood to see what was going on. All of the fluids were fine and the only thing that looked out of place was that one of the spark plug wire boots slipped off the lip at the top of the spark plug well. I've never had something like that happen before. Any ideas what caused it and how I can keep it from happening again?
