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 see some fellow Jeep guys when I go to Moab, and they have their spare tire mounted to the roof because I guess they couldn't mount it to the back of their vehicle? This seems like a bad idea, partly because it would be hard to get the tire off the roof. The other thing about it is that I would think it would make the Jeep top-heavy and prone to rolling over, which is exactly what you want to avoid on the trail. What are your thoughts?
I have a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 that usually runs fine. When I go up in the mountains by my house, it starts to act up and eventually will threaten to overheat. I've flushed the coolant system, checked for leaks, and it still does this. I'm concerned that this problem will leave me stranded one day, so if any of your have a suggestion that would be great.
I'm a poor, married college student with an old Civic, a 1999 to be exact. When my wife goes to one class where parking is scarce, I take her and then park in a reserved spot, but stay in the car so we don't get a ticket. Her class is two hours along and I listen to the radio while I play on my phone or read a book. My dad told me that I'm ruining the battery doing this. Is he right?
I own a 2002 Subaru Impreza with all-wheel drive. The thing has started to shake like crazy whenever I go through a turn. It's not only annoying, I'm also afraid that there's something seriously wrong. My friend who's a big Subaru fan says he has never seen anything like it. I really want to get the problem fixed, but want to know what it is first.
I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee that I try to take good care of. I have some friends and family members who plop down in the seats, making the suspension compress and the whole SUV dip down. I'm afraid this is running my suspension, but nobody takes me seriously. Am I being paranoid or is this a real problem?
I was riding in the car with my father-in-law driving the other day. He always slams on the brakes, which is really annoying. I asked him about it, and he started going on and on about how stopping gradually wears the brake pads out faster since they drag on the rotors. That sounds completely stupid to me, but I just want to make sure he's wrong before I say anything.
I just bought a 1978 911 and love it. The other day it rained, though, and the thing started struggling to just keep the engine running. I don't get what's going on and want to figure it out instead of having a mechanic work me over for a huge bill. The car started running fine the next day, after it sat in my garage. Any ideas?
The other day I went to a quick lube place I've never been to before. The guys there were saying that I can save some money by using refined oil in my old Jeep Cherokee. I love my Jeep and it didn't sound good, using old oil that has been refined, so I passed. I'm still curious, though, and want to know if it's something that's safe to use.
