S10 2.2 lifter noise? by BOB URZ

I took the head off and found 8 bent valves. I had the head into a machine shop, had it cleaned, decked, and 8 new valves and seals ...

New cheap car by The Real Bev[_5_]
I need to shop (southern California) for a <=$4K car for a friend. I believe that I want a Carolla because they're always at the top of reliability lists and NOBODY I know wants to work on a car ever again. So I'm looking at cars in the $3-$4K range with under 150K miles which tend to be...

Testing Brake Fluid by ED
I read that I can determine the moisture content of the brake fluid in my car by using a DMM (digital multimeter). Negative lead to the -battery term and the positive lead to the brake fluid in the reservoir. Anything below .3 volts is acceptable. Any comments on the validity of this method?

LGX engine power output query by [email protected]
This new motor is specced at 250 kW when mounted north-south in a Cadillac. But when mounted east west, it is only 231 kW in Buick or 235 kW in Opel. So what is the difference? Does the transverse installation cramp the exhaust and air intake, or did Cadillac just get a hot engine map?

car stumbles going around corners but no MIL by Bob J Jones
For about a year now, the car stumbles when going around corners, where I can't figure out what the stumbling is due to. It didn't used to be so consistent but it's getting worse over time so now it's finally noticeable that it's the turns and not something else that makes it stumble for a split...

are fuses always on 12V side of a device? by [email protected]
I find a lot of vehicles used "switched earth" system, where devices join to a 12 V main wire, and are switched on the earth side. But then, would the fuse still be on the hot side for extra safety? So I believe it should look like this: 12V--fuse--lamp--switch--earth
