So I’m taking my new Ford Escape on a road trip, it’s only 2wd (I got the biggest engine though!). It’s likely I’ll be hitting some snow but probably not anything death defying. I live in southern California which means I’ve driven through more fires that I have snowy roads. Looking for a decent set of budget snow…
Saw this Volkswagen with Arizona dealer plates driving around Los Angeles today. I thought it might be a non-US Golf Sportsvan but the taillights seem a bit different. Then I thought maybe it’s a Sharan but don’t those have sliding rear doors? Anyone know what this is?
So, I’ve been at my current job since March. At first I was strictly here to do some IT work, bring them up to date with 2017 technology(their previous daily operations was old school and messy), and some admin. work. Fast forward to today and I have my hand in a lot of things...for better or worse.
My mom is shopping for a new car and she’s enlisted my help, a responsibility I take seriously.
My house seems to be falling apart. Am I going to die? Did I cause this?
After years of giving no fucks, maybe it is time to start giving a few. Our trusty steed here backfires every time the engine first starts and then randomly off and on as you drive. With a car engine I’d start by looking at spark and timing, but I don’t know where to start here. Thanks in advance (no pun intended).…
Inspired by Zoidberg’s couch post and my loft bed post on Christmas, I’ve decided it might be neat to have a blog devoted to flat pack furniture. Yes I realize this is crazy, but the stuff fascinates me and a lot of us here love taking pictures of whatever projects we’re doing and posting them. Could just be a home…
If it is even real and not a shop/render. This has been driving me nuts for the better part of an hour now, because I fee like I’ve seen it before. Interior shape and materials look German, but the only 5-speeds with a reverse lockout collar I can think of are Korean.
Yo dudes and dudettes. I’m coming to the states next summer as part of a Work and travel thing. I’ll be a waiter or a cleaner for a month or two and then I’ll travel around the US and try to see as much of it as I can.
I’ll try and post here when I know my schedule and ask for more local advice, but for now a few…
Save me please...
So I have been looking at wheels again. And then I found out I’ll need to get coilovers to prevent rub on the struts. Then I found out I’ll need camber bolts and LCAs for the rear to get a proper alignment.
What does it mean if my battery light stays on after I’ve turned off the car? Thanks. I just replaced the alternator last night and it was fine for a while.
How does one get into the auto detailing profession? I’m “casually” browsing for a new job and honestly I’d rather not stick to car sales. How does one get into auto detailing?
Anyone know anything about solar brands and tech? I am looking for 100 watts of solar with a controller to 12v output that will be rugged, effective and not stupid expensive. Any advice?
My car needs an oil change and I might as well get it done at my friends’ job, so I need to buy good oil and an oil filter.
ENTERTAIN ME!! I’m waiting on someone to show for an appointment and he is running late (of course)
About 10 minutes into my drive home I see smoke coming from my rear left wheel. I pull over and see white smoke slowly coming from the top of my caliper. I camp out for 30 or so minutes to make sure it cools and to see if there was anything in between the pads or even on the rotor. I find nothing, hop back in my car,…
I require your assitance!
So I have a new CMC and shifter bushings on their way since I’m suffering from the infamous 2nd gear lock out. Anyone in the north NJ area have a good place to have them installed? I don’t trust myself with this and my usual go to place is not an option anymore
