Homework 10 home automotive repairs starting from an oil change and ending with engine replacement by Drago Giambattista Esposito
I'm taking a night class on auto maintenance in adult school. There is no grade and no tests. Just learning. And fun. The teacher asked today, the first class, for us to bring next week a list of the 10 things that people can do at home to repair their car, starting with number 1 being an oil...

NY stretch limo fatal crash - officials seized airbag module - why? by [email protected]
Some guy on the evening news claimed it was the vehicle's "black box recorder" eh? Some of the airbag controllers I have seen are quite simple and independent. They would not be logging data. I would think the ECU is more likely to do this. I believe they store maxima for the last engine start:...

Does iOS have basic *accurate* address lookup *anonymously* from the stellar Google Maps DB API in order to *seamlessly* pass those accurate coordinates to any installed offline map app? Use model: 1. On the net, the app privately queries the Google API for an address, e.g., 100 Main St.,...

ignition hard to turn by Tim R
It's an older Chevy. Occasionally the key didn't want to turn, but enough jiggling and I could get it to start. Now it's every time, and I'm never sure I'll get it. Would spraying lubricant into the keyhole help, or make it worse?

muffler by [email protected]
I wanted to be a cheapskate, and other things, and get my old muffler welded, but when I took it off I found a 3/4" hole on top where the retainer strap held it. Is this some kind of be-metallic effect? I want a new one now (autozone $32.99), so when I install it should I put a fiber glass pad up...

NAPA vs. Autozone vs. O'Reilly... price and quality? by phaeton
Using online catalogues, i've priced out the parts to rebuild the front end on my truck. (In-store pricing might be slightly different) This will mean 2 upper control arm assys, 2 lower ball joints, control arm bushings all around, and inner and outer tie rod ends for both sides. At NAPA, it's...

what lateral g-force can old cars achieve? by [email protected]
A modern vanilla sedan can do 0.9 g, maybe more with good tyres. I saw a video on Youtube of some guy fitting a triangulated 4-link suspension to some chrome-bumper car, and managed to get 0.52 g on cornering, which seems rather poor. Must have had **** tyres. Sorry, I haven't been able to find it...
