Tire Pressure Gauges - Analog Vs. Digital by [email protected]
Tire Pressure Gauges - Analog Vs. Digital The purpose of my inquiry, after two months of experience with two digital tire gauges, is not to find out which brands of gauge are better than others, but rather, to find out which type(dial face vs digital) you feel: 1. Consistently gives the same...

OK to eliminate the PCV valve? by j
I am not a mechanic, but this is in regards to a 1994 Chevrolet Corsica with a 6 cylinder engine that has 138,000 miles on it, is still in very good condition, and has always had Mobil 1 synthetic oil. It is my contention that the PCV valve, on an engine this old, is likely to decrease the engine...

Torque Wrench Safety Question by [email protected]
I recently bought a torque wrench - the modern shaft collar design, 20-150ft lb torque, and the appropriate size six point sockets for the lugnuts on mine and my wife's cars. I recently loosened and re-torqued my wife's wheel lugnuts to spec, or maybe 1lb over, but what was really scary was how...

removing radiator stop leak by [email protected]
A friend put in stop leak and now the heater core is blocked. Unfortunately it is much harder to replace than radiator or thermostat (which seem to be okay anyway). He put some detergent in the coolant and reversed the hoses, which achieved nothing. Look through other forums, I see various...

Adjust headlight by Andy
My mechanic adjusted one of my headlights because it was out of alignment due to some body work to my right fender. However, only the up/down is adjustable. I wonder why the right/left is not adjustable? I seem to recall in the 70s where both adjustment could be made. Andy

Stop AC vent from changing positions by Andy
My AC vents change positions rather easily which changes where the air blows. I am looking for ideas on how to stop it. I thought about using vaseline in the circle area, but my cars gets to 140 degrees in the sun. https://imgur.com/a/m8f9nuy

hI aLL! what lateral g-force can old cars achieve? by longtrennguoi
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 sh*t tyres. Sorry, I haven't been able to find it...

does anybody besides Audi use the trapezoidal rear suspension? by [email protected]
I stopped to help a little old lady with a flat tyre. She was driving an Audi, and I found the independent rear suspension to be quite interesting. Searching, I can only find SEAT (also part of VW) with it. But theirs (on FWD ****box) looks like a cheaper implementation of the Audi setup.

Roof problems on renault megane cabriolet by Karmann[_1_]
I have a 2002 megane cabriolet, had a flat battery on Monday and had to manually close it. Now the hatch on the boot won't open again electrically to be able to open the roof. Renault say once the manual strap is back in it should open. Any ideas anyone?

how to use this battery charger- BRADEX by [email protected]
The charger will show a very low rate on the meter. When it stop dropping for a couple of hours that is when you know the battery is fully charged. I have a 20 year old Bradex 4amp charger which I use on the low setting. It still charges the big battery on a 2,2 crd Pt Cruiser very well but...

Motor is wheezing, as if it's breathing - why? by Arlen Holder[_4_]
It's a Honda lawnmower I'm asking about, which is about 10 years old, but which runs fine most of the time. I replaced the plug, ran a tank of fresh gas, and cleaned the filter, and yet, it "wheezes" like it's breathing, normal rpm, and then slower rpm and then normal rpm and then slower rpm and...

What exactly does cold pressure mean? by Tom Adams
I help maintain a Ford E350 used for a vanpool. The door panel spec says that the rear tires require 80 psi. The sidewall specs on the rear tires say that the maximum pressure is 80 psi. So, what does cold pressure mean exactly? If I check the tires on a cold morning (say 35 degrees) I will end...
