• Is this true or are they lying?

    I have friends who claim that they change their oil every 20,000 miles and have never had any problems with cars getting over 300,000 miles. They do say they only use full synthetic oil. True or lying?

  • Is it smarter to repair or replace a paid off car that is nearing 200,000 miles?

    No car payment vs. potentially costly repairs. Trade in for a used car that could potentially have its own set of problems.. What would you do what have you done what is your strategy?

    I went to ganley in Strongsville oh. Bought a fusion. Paid cash. They gave me documents of all the receipts and repairs that we re made. They told me nothing was wrong with the car. I test drove the car for 30 min. Everything seemed fine. I took the car to my mechanic the same day. The car was leaking oil. I had to have an oil gasket cover thing replaced. Sparkplugs and front break pads changed. Then the next morning the check engine light comes on and now there something wrong with and air valve. So far I ve spent 600$ in repairs. Now it s going to cost me another 300$. Is there anything I can do. Thanks. Please no rude comments. I m not a mechanic and I had no one to take with me.

    I just turned 16 on February 10th and my parents got me a car for my birthday. They got me a 2009 Honda Accord. I know its not that old, but it has problems.

How should I tell my parents that i hate it and that I want a new car?

  • Why did my car hydroplane?

    Best answer: Sometimes oil gets on the road and water on top of it will cause you to lose traction. You have no way of knowing if such a condition exists when approaching it.

    Yesterday I was driving back from the store with gf and she was sitting with her feet up by the center console. She bumped the gear shifter into drive 1 or drive 2 and I didn t realize it till I hopped on the freeway. I pressed the gas pretty hard and realized the problem when the RPMs went to 6 / 7 (the red) and the car wouldn t pick up speed. I instantly pulled off the gas and then put the car in drive 4. I have experienced no issues with my car thus far. Will everything be okay? It s an 02 Honda Accord

  • Why has no car manufacturer built a modern car with a carburetor engine? (Question continues below)?

    Best answer: Emmissions regulations forced the developement of everything under the hood. Car makers would just build carburetors and simple cars if they could. The Lada in Russia was carb until 1996, cheap car trying to stay cheap. The VW bug was built from 1938 to 2003 but outlawed by emmission laws in many countries in the... show more
    Best answer: Emmissions regulations forced the developement of everything under the hood. Car makers would just build carburetors and simple cars if they could. The Lada in Russia was carb until 1996, cheap car trying to stay cheap. The VW bug was built from 1938 to 2003 but outlawed by emmission laws in many countries in the 1970's. I think it used the carb the whole time.

    I see many people calling the carb ineffecient here. A good carb design with a good mechanic on a well designed car will not get better mileage if converted to fuel injection. There is much more going on. The computer and all it's gear got added to the carb to make the catalyst converter work. The mechanical carb parts were not fast enough or durable enough, so evolution replaced them with injection. Many advancements have been made for improved combustion and emmissions on the modern car. Only in the later half of compuer's life has performance come from it.
