what if mesh guard for MAF sensor is missing? by [email protected]
I noticed in two different cars that the airflow sensor was missing the honeycomb mesh guard that is used to promote laminar flow across the wires. What is the effect of this? I presume the mixture would be too rich or lean, but then the ECU would monitor the exhaust oxygen sensor and would...

spoked wheels obsoletion by AD[_2_]
given that spokes are alive and well on bicycles I have to ask why they are gone from the car wheels. motorcycles held a little longer than cars it seems, but spokes are long gone in standard, touring and sport triangle (not sure if harley and wannabes have them or not) so, was it the looks alone...

helical spring washers by Brake Dive, Acceleration Squat and Body Roll Bros Suspension Works
according to this: http://www.boltscience.com/pages/helicalspringwashers.htm they are not effective (making the matter worse actually) and yet I think I saw them in some application lately. Why are they still made?

Fuel comparison charts by Existential Angst[_2_]
Perty inneresting. http://www.afdc.energy.gov/fuels/fuel_comparison_chart.pdf Apropos of some recent diesel discussions, diesel fuel all by itself should give 13% more mpgs, just from the higher btu's per gallon alone. And, funnily enough, diesel appears to be about 13% more expensive at the...

lubing wheel lug nuts, does the lube kind really matters? by Brake Dive, Acceleration Squat and Body Roll Bros Suspension Works
does it really matter what you lube the threads with? local shops recommend graphite based lube claiming motor oil would make subsequent disassembly harder rather than easier and I was thinking using leftoever manual tranny oil living in snowbelt and running winter and all season sets on...

Speaking of Powered Liftgates...and 6 speed automatics by Ashton Crusher[_2_]
