Making new keys for a 2005 Toyota by micky
I get conflicting stories about making additional keys for my 2005 Toyota. The Amazon page that sells keyblanks says I can't do it myself, need a locksmith or dealer. But googling for instructions, I found them, which I can look for and post if it would help here. And that's pretty surprising...

I have never changed transmission fluid before so below is my DIY which I post for critique so that I can learn how to do a better job next time. Also I ask how to tell why the clutch pedal "feels weird" in that it engages all at once and not slowly like I would think it would. Here's my first...

Correct VIN? by micky
Looking to buy a car, check the VIN on carfax, and the repair history there conflicts with the seller's story about where the car has been. So maybe I copied the VIN wrong, probably just one digit, but the make and model of the car that carfax reports is the same as the one I'm looking at. Does...

How do you know who made your O2 sensor? by micky
How do you know who made your O2 sensor? Both the car I'm getting rid of and most likely the car I'm buying need O2 sensors. One video I saw said it was important to get the same brand as original because other brands might not communicate well with the computer. But he didn't say how to find...

Nokian WR-G3 Tires: Opinions On, Please by Bob[_53_]
Hello, Live in New England. Fair amount of Snow and ice during the winter, but nothing like, e.g., Northern Maine. Considering the Nokian WR-G3 (shown on their site as "all-weather") as a compromise, as I do not want to take on or off seasonally.
