What's wrong with my tires?

I have a 2005 Nissan Xterra that used to be my primary vehicle, but then I got a larger vehicle as I had more kids. I still drive it on some weekends or occasionally to run an errand, just to make sure it keeps running strong. In any case, I noticed an issue with the tires and I'm not sure if it's serious or not. The tread looks great still, but on two of them the rubber on the sidewall is pretty much gone and a white under layer is exposed. I'm not sure if those two tires rubbed against a rock, cement curb, or what. Is this a big deal? Is there anything I can or should do about it?

Why is my car bouncing more than usual?

I have a 2005 Honda Accord that has a little over 100,000 miles on it. The car has been great, except for a few minor tune-up issues, until recently. Where I live, there is one road in particular where it is kind of wavy or full of bumps, kind of like cottage cheese. Recently, the car bounces like crazy when I drive on the road, when before it was a relatively smooth ride. In fact, just the other day I had an open drink in the cupholder and it made the liquid splash all over the dash and my seat. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

Why do diesel oil changes cost so much?

I'm looking at buying a diesel-powered pickup truck, although I haven't decided which model to go with yet. The truck will be used primarily to pull a trailer to different race tracks in the area, so I need something reliable that can tow with ease, especially in the hot summer weather. A friend of mine told me that one big thing about diesel trucks is that they cost a bunch for oil changes, and they need them more often. I checked into it with a lube shop and found out that he was right! Does anyone know why this is?

Why does my Cherokee shift so much?

I am the proud, original owner of a 1994 Jeep Cherokee. I haven't put too many miles on the vehicle since I really love it. That's why I'm upset that there's a problem with the transmission and my mechanic is blowing it off, saying it's nothing. The transmission just suddenly started shifting more often, what I would call gear seeking. It also doesn't shift as early in the RPMs as before, which I find weird. I have trouble believing it's not a big deal and I want a solution. Anyone have ideas?

Is there something wrong with my Jeep?

My Jeep Wrangler, which is a 1994 model, have been burning some oil lately. I got some additive stuff at the store and it said to turn on the engine, then remove the oil filler cap and pour the stuff in. I did exactly what the directions said and my engine just plain died. I put the filler cap back on and tried it again, and as soon as I took the cap off the engine died again. I am totally baffled. Do you know what's wrong with my Jeep?

Lift or Level

For awhile now I've been wanting to lift my 2012 Chevy Silverado, the ultimate goal being a 6in lift on 35s. I've talked to multiple businesses about the pricing for this whole ordeal involving new wheels, tires, and the lift, and the price has ranged from $6000 to $4000. Looking further into it, i've discovered it's a real wear & tear on the chevy transmission. Why is it so much easier on a Ford than a Chevy, and why are the prices for lifting the two different brands so overwhelmingly different? After hearing this, I was told a leveling kit with 33s would be a nice option, but I've been stuck on the idea of the lift for so long. Is the lift that bad? What are the pros & cons when comparing a lift and leveling kit, particularly on a newer silverado.

Do mechanics really overcharge?

The other day, I dropped off my car to my mechanic's shop for a valve adjustment. They told me it was a 5-hour job, and so I had a friend pick me up so I could get to work. About three hours later, they called and told me the car was ready to pick up. When I go there, my car was ready but the shop was asking for payment for five hours of labor! I was so pissed and let them know I was, but the guy just told me it's the standard rate and so I should be happy they were done with my car early. Did they just pull a fast one on me?

Can I use snow tires in the summer?

Where I live, it's warm only three or four months out of the year, and it snows like crazy pretty much the rest of the time. I have been swapping tires on my old car, back and forth between snow tires and summer tires. It's pretty expensive and now that I have to buy a new car and take on a payment again, I'm wondering if it's okay to just leave snow tires on all year. Can anyone tell me if there's anything really wrong with driving on snow tires in the summer?

    Yes. It wears off the traction meant for the winter. So you have to change them sooner.

I can't get the oil filter off my Jeep Grand Cherokee!

I was going to change the oil on my Jeep Grand Cherokee, but couldn't get the filter off. It's crushed from hitting a rock or something like that. The good news is the filter wasn't leaking, but it's been so damaged that my filter wrench can't get a grip on it. I used a strap-style wrench and one of the cap kind, and it still wouldn't budge. I turned to wrenches and other methods, but the filter only crushed more without turning at all. What can I do to get the filter off my Jeep?

Should I go with low profile tires?

I have been working on a project Mazda Miata, having made some changes to the drivetrain and suspension. One of the last upgrades I'm looking for are some new wheels and tires. I have a lot of people telling me to go with low profile tires. I've stiffened up the suspension quite a bit to improve the car's handling, and so I'm concerned that low profile tires will make the car really uncomfortable to ride in. What do you all think?
