• Pardon my ignorance; what is an O2 sensor, and how much does it cost to replace it?

    Don't get a used O2 sensor unless you are really, REALLY stretched for cash. They aren't that expensive, and they held your car's computer brain "read" the health of your engine.

    Don't get a used O2 sensor unless you are really, REALLY stretched for cash. They aren't that expensive, and they held your car's computer brain "read" the health of your engine. Depending on the data the O2 sensors receive & report - your car's computer may increase or reduce timing, or more importantly, reduce or increase your fuel to air mixture. Both of these settings can greatly affect performance & mileage. Since the 02 sensors are located in the exhaust system, between your engine and the muffler, they go through hell over their lifetime. If you buy sensors from someone how as modified his / her car, you could end up with a damaged sensor, which means throwing your money away. Save yourself the trouble, visit any parts store and pick them up for perhaps $100 each. It should only take 1-2 hours to locate and replace them - but be forewarned....they might be baked onto the exhuast, so lube them up good with penetrating silicon or WD-40. And clean them off after or you might get a quick fire or fumes as the car heats up!!!

  • What was with the white plane that flew over the Whitehouse on 9/11?

    Are you referring to the recent 6th anniversary of 9-11, or the original event? The FAA no longer allows civilian overflights of the White House. If it was 9-11-2001, all (4) of the aircraft that participated in those horrific events were Boeing 757 and 767 series jet aircraft.

If it was 9-11-2001, all (4) of the aircraft that participated in those horrific events were Boeing 757 and 767 series jet aircraft. They were undoubtably picked for the cockpit commonality aspect, allowing the otherwise novice "pilots" to become familiar enough with the equipment to fly them long enough to find their target and hit them. Reportedly, a large (100+) numbers of schools / school buses are a highly likely next target for Al-Queda.

  • What is the fastest american world war 2 fighter plane thunderbolt ,mustang, or corsair?

    Without a doubt, it is the Grumman F-8 Bearcat, the replacement to the F-3 Wildcat & F-6 Hellcat. The F-8 is the fastest prop plane ever made. With a production Top speed of 455 MPH, it beats the P-47 & P-51. In modified form, the F-8 holds the world 3k close-circuit record of over 528 MPH!

It didn't have the storied history of the Thunderbolt, Mustang or other planes of the period. But had the war continued, its reputation would be know far outside the warbird racing & airshow circuits. But if your going for style & street cred, then by all means, go with the P-51. Even the Thunderbolt pilots can't argue with the Mustang's good looks (though I'd rather have the sheer strenght, speed & safety of the P-47 anyday in combat). Max Speed = 455 mph Cruising Speed: 425 mph Range: 1650 miles Service Ceiling: 42,300 ft. Span: 35 ft. 6 in. Length: 27 ft. 6 in. Height: 13 ft. 10 in. Weight: 9, 300 lbs. Max

    Best answer: TIPS FOR VIEWING METEORS The peak of the Perseid meteor shower is late Sunday night and, especially, after midnight Monday. For the best viewing: Go where the sky is darkest. You'll see some meteors in cities, but not as many as in areas away from bright lights. After 9 p.m. Sunday, look for the meteors in the northeast sky. The meteors will fly out of the constellation Perseus. There will be fewer meteors early in the night, but they will be among the most beautiful. They approach from the horizon and skim through the sky like stones skipping the surface of a pond. In the hours before dawn Monday, there could be more than one meteor a minute. It is best to view the meteors with the naked eye. Telescopes and binoculars would make it more difficult, because the meteors move so quickly. Bring a blanket or lawn chair so you can lie down. Otherwise, your neck will get tired from looking up at the sky. SOURCE: National Aeronautics and Space Administration

    Best answer: I agree - there are pros and cons for each. The most important thing to do is ensure the college is accredited. Check on the US Department of Education to see if your desired school passes this important test! Some people do not require the many negative aspects of traditional schools (crappy parking, personal safety for ladies late at night, having to register on site, getting bumped from classes due to excessive overcrowding, inconsiderate students screwing around while you are trying to learn, etc, etc, etc). I have gone to night school at 3 different colleges (UCLA, Pasadena City College and Mt. SAC) & my former employer's technical school - and have given up on the Traditional way. With work, family, commuting and the aforementioned challenges of brick & mortar schools....online is the way for me (again - personal choice). More & more traditional state colleges are offering online degrees, from Associates to Masters. California State University - Chico offers a GREAT Computer Science Bachelor's degree. If you are applying at anything Fortune 1,000 - don't be tempted to use "diploma mills" which sell diplomas based on life experiences. In the end - ensure they are an accredited college, and find the right school to meet YOUR needs, not those of the college.

  • Will I be able to see the meteor rain while on the plane?

    Sure you would. Planes fly at 35,000 ft, which is well away from light pollution, and the cabin lights will be out. It is probably one of the very best places to watch it, though the windows will distort the view, and you have such a small window from which to watch the show.
