Valet broke my brakes by Tom Del Rosso[_5_]
Tonight when I gave my 97 Mercury to the parking valet the brakes were normal. When I got it back the pedal had to go to the floor to stop. There are 2 systems right? Would it do that if one line broke? --

any cops still using the Crown Victoria ? by [email protected]
There was an article in a motoring magazine last year claiming that 200 Crown Vics were still in service, having not done enough miles to be retired. But occasionally one sees a story on the evening news, the cop car is a Panther. I suppose there will be a big hoo-ha when the very last one goes.

That is not normal, there is a vent valve to compensate for that.

Where do I ask for car repair questions? I am graduating soon and just got a car for free. Mitsubishi Lancer 2004. But it needs stuff like the entire air conditioning control switch panel part. Do you know of any good web site to ask repair & parts questions?

Idler pulley squeeks, lubricate or replace? by [email protected]
My 94 Saturn SL2 squeels when first started, and may be getting worse. Likeliest guess is the idler pulley bearings. It's not an easy replacement, going through the wheel well. Should I be able to get away with just lubricating it? With what? Nils K. Hammer

Why are torque wrenches eschewed by many mechanics by [email protected]
Techs who don't use a torque wrench are just grease monkeys. I hate techs who overtighten nuts and bolts. They supposedly have the right tools, and then don't use them properly. Use a torque wrench donkey.

http://www.mining.com/driverless-trucks-not-flawless-two-crash-fortescue-mine-australia/ Lucky it hit another mine truck. If one of these reversed onto a car, it would crush it flat as a pancake and keep going.
