• Can my this 4 cylinder truck sustain these speeds or will it overheat the engine?

    The car is a 2003 Honda Element with a 4 speed automatic and is awd. My question is if I'm on a highway that allowed speeds of up to 150 mph(for example, the Autobahn) what is the maximum speed this truck can comfortably cruise at until the gas tank is emptied? Will 70 mph pushing it? Could it sustain 85 mph?... show more

  • How difficult is it to operate a car with v8 engine?

I’d consider myself a fairly decent driver but I never drove a sports car with a v8 engine and I’d like to take it for a test drive at the dealership. Is it difficult to drive a car with about 400-500hp with little experience? Do I have to tap on the gas very lightly. I’d hate to crash the car or spin out on the highway while test driving it. That would be extremely embarrassing.

  • What's your weekend ride?

    The one you ride for leisure; as opposed to commuting, duh! Me? Don't ask! I don't want to brag but... My weekend ride is as fast as a Ferrari Enzo! I bought it for an equivalent of $7000 a few years ago, has the same 0-60 as The Enzo albeit slightly worse (0.2sec slower) quarter mile. It returns 40MPG... show more

  • Do you think the future is electric?

    Best answer: The two big problems with electric vehicles currently is range ( how much energy the batteries can hold ) and recharging time. These will need to be solved for electric vehicles to become viable over internal combustion engines.

    Hydrogen ( either directly as a fuel in an ICE or powering a fuel cell ) certainly solves the refueling time issue and it is far better for the environment. The big issue with hydrogen is the lack of a distribution network.

    By the way, electric vehicles still create emissions. First there is the mining of the metals that make up the batteries and also how the electricity is generated to power the vehicles. A coal-fired electrical generating station can emit a lot of pollutants to produce the electricity to power an EV. The emissions won't come out of the vehicle tail pipe but it will still be generated somewhere.

  • Learning how to drive for the first time is a disaster. What to do?!!?

    I'm eighteen and just started driving lessons. About 2-3 times now. The teacher is a bit judgmental and talks a lot. Anyway I already hate the roundabouts and speed humps and turning. Every so often I do it wrong and miss things. Advice????!

    Just wondering what could be happening as it affects my driving.... But basically i set all my tyres to the correct pressure and set off and over the course of a long long journey it feels like the front tyres change pressure or shape... swtiching from left to right and vice versa... the feeling i get is similar to when you've parked the car on a sloping road overnight and it takes a few miles to heat the tyres up back into shape.

    Best answer: The three of them together weigh as much as 7 to 8 normal people. You need an 8 seat minibus, not a small shopping hatchback to carry that weight.

    Best answer: The three of them together weigh as much as 7 to 8 normal people.

    You need an 8 seat minibus, not a small shopping hatchback to carry that weight.

    All three people already know that they are super heavyweights and so have to accept that their lifestyle choices come with limitations.

    In this case it simply means that you tell your friend that whilst your car can safely carry just her, it cannot carry her friends as well because the car cannot handle that loading.

    Carrying even one of her friends will push your car past the load it is designed for: not only is there a risk of damage, not least to the back seat alone, but it will seriously affect the safe handling of the vehicle. It’s also highly unlikely that the rear seat belts will fit.

    Learning to say “No!” is a vital life skill. Now you have a perfect chance to practice.

    A highway maintenance van with flashing orange light was pulled over on the hard shoulder. The van was white with no other colours but had a speed camera sign on the rear. I drove past it about 7.30pm When i returned later that night there were road works, which there were none at the area of the motorway he was parked. The road works could be coincidental but just wondered if anyone has seen a highway maintenance van with a speed camera and its likely it was active?

    Best answer: No widely commercial service that I know of. local charity provided ride service and couple other special need service will let whatever license, insured vehicle available haul people - Vets Transport has a few older vans from 1980s- rebuilt with wheel chair assist. Safe ride, designated driver from bar service will let older cars be used- especially designated driver for some dollars that don't want to disinfect /clean up drunk vomit on newer models- the bar tender will call for a older car and driver for someone that has already barfed once, likely to do again. Old Chevy Cavalier station wagons and early mini vans with plastic, washable seat covers common. Pet hauling service to vets office- old large car, vans with interiors already smelling like wet dog used. check you local area- church groups, VA hospital services, bar tenders ride assistance and the sometimes popular Safe Ride for women if you're also female.

  • Will I get a driving fine?

    Best answer: Relax. The cameras are there only for security and safety purposes and the footage they record only gets viewed if there’s good reason to do so.

    Best answer: Relax. The cameras are there only for security and safety purposes and the footage they record only gets viewed if there’s good reason to do so.

    Those reasons would typically be for theft or robbery, vandalism or accidental damage, or if there was something like a fire or a major fuel spillage.

    The camera cannot often show whether a cae engine was left running, and it cannot usually prove that whatever you held to your ear was definitely an active phone. Even if it could, “no harm, no foul” applies. The fuel station owners have no interest in penalising customers unless damage occurred.

  • If my 2003 SUV requires synthetic oil, can I use conventional or high mileage oil instead?

    Best answer: You can try it, but why take the chance? Synthetic oil isn't that much more expensive, especially compared to the cost of a new engine.
