  • Do millennials know how to drive a car with a manual transmission?

    Best answer: I sometimes think that you need to stop your question above with a question mark after the word "car" and delete all the words and punctuation after the newly placed question mark.

  • Why do you have to turn the key to "on" just to check fuel level?

    This may be a stupid question, and it's something that got me thinking as to why they stopped doing this. I know that in the early 90's Integras you can see the fuel level when the car is turned off all the way and the keys not in the ignition. I think it's better to see the fuel level without the keys.... show more

Does anyone know why car makers stopped making their fuel gauges displaying fuel level with the car turned off? Now that I think about it, they may have stopped doing that as it would be easy for a car jacker to jack the car knowing they had plenty of fuel without needing the keys to find out.

  • How do deal with unsafe drivers?

    Best answer: Avoidance is the best way. Go to junk yard and get a VW chrome emblem and glue it to the back of your car. The other driver will see VW and automatically assume he is driving too slow....so will pull out and pass you. Even if YOU are speeding, he will pull out and pass you. Or also get a DIESEL chrome... show more
    Best answer: Avoidance is the best way. Go to junk yard and get a VW chrome emblem and glue it to the back of your car. The other driver will see VW and automatically assume he is driving too slow....so will pull out and pass you.

    Even if YOU are speeding, he will pull out and pass you.

    Or also get a DIESEL chrome emblem and stick on the back of your car and people avoid you LIKE THE PLAGUE. You stink. and are too slow..

    If you do drive a diesel, just shove it down into a lower gear and tromp on the accelerator pedal which should produce excess black smoke. They back off.

    Proper distance between you and the next car is a 2 second interval. As soon as the car in front passes a sign you count 1 N 2N and you should just reach that sign. That is the distance needed to stop for your car. Whether you are going 30MPH or 130MPH the 2 second rule applies. I have more like a 4 second space because I can.

    As for being in the right lane, you are in the proper lane. It they want to pass they must pass you using the left lane. Otherwise I ignore them especially since they do not have the flashing lights a cop car, ambulance or fire truck has, then you pull over to the shoulder of the road and stop until the emergency vehicles pass. Then get on the road again. The left lane "sometimes called the passing lane" is for emergency vehicles...so they can go like a BAT OUT OF HELL to the emergency.

    As for the clown behind you that moves without signal lights....he got his driver training play Nintendo car driving games.

    The guy behind you with the high beams. It is his problem if you are in the right lane. He has to pass in the left lane or STFU. i just adjust my rearview mirror so his headlights do not reflect into my eyes.

    Some people drive only with the highbeams on not realizing that it affects the drivers in front of them. General *******.

    They don't know how to drive., or are visually impaired.

    Fortunately not all drivers are like that.

    Instead of doing 60 do 50 and that will force them to pass you . You would rather them be in front than behind you.

    I drove VW Beetle for years so got used to this B.S. Also drove a Diesel.for years. And a sports car for years and with that car you could be purposely going under the speed limit and the other cars stayed behind you, SO...go figure?

    I have a 2004 Toyota Solara. 112,000 miles. I've had it for 4 years, and never once had a problem with it. until yesterday. The car growls when you first step on the the gas pedal, but stops growling once it reaches a fast enough speed. once it first starts to accelerate it's make a loud growl, but once I got close to 40 mph, it suddenly stops. Anyone know what could be wrong? I will take it to the shop once I can take off work, within the next week, will it last until then? (I'm not the best with cars, if you couldnt tell. Just learning)

  • Do fuel/engine additives really work?

    We see additives ranging from octane booster, fuel injector cleaner, engine tune-up, engine oil flush, to engine oil stop leaks. But do these products really work in your car, and up to what degree do these products work. If I were to use such products, I would go with STP or Liqui-Moly

  • Should I change my oil more often in an older, high mileage truck?

    Best answer: A lot of progress has been made in lubricants, it can easily last 10K. Your owners manual probably says 7500 miles, but if it is using some oil and experiencing some blow by then 5000 would probably be good. I've heard some talk about sticking with 7500 and replacing the filter halfway through the 7500. The... show more

    I've heard some talk about sticking with 7500 and replacing the filter halfway through the 7500. The oil won't be damaged, but it seems possible the filter may get plugged if oil gets contaminated.

  • OOPS! I broke a screw!?

    I broke a screw off that holds the plug wires in place when I was replacing my plugs on my 2011 Honda Cr-V. Is this something that I can easily fix or should it go to a mechanic? I did not over-tighten the screw and the car runs just fine. I was hand tightening the screw and it broke off in the hole!
