Please don't hate.. just tell me if it's still safe.
dependiing on miles between oil change, actual car makers suggested intervals and practical abilities, looks of oil-- filter change with long interval oil change is 'normal'- but every other short interval oil change may be no problem for doing filter- especially if filter is a large 10 micron holding a...
What traffic violation would that be called if you bounce the front wheels up then hit the gas (briefly) and release the gas as wheels come down repeatedly?
My car was in the shop for 3 weeks. The accident happened last November (took months for the other person's insurance to accept responsibility) and I just got it yesterday and my check engine light is now on and it's never been on before. It's only 5 years old and I've only owned it a year. Should I...
I noticed my car has no temperature anymore. I just picked my car up from the body shop btw
It's a rather varied price depending what is checked or repaired (if anything) and how much refrigerant that is actually put in.
Some mechanics will simply add a can or 2 of refrigerant, and if cold air comes out, they are finished.

I’ve read that we have about 50 years before we run out of oil. So what happens to gasoline and what the hell can cars run on when they disappear? What can every vehicle run on that’s not gasoline ?

2006 Saturn ion, I had the oil change done in Feb and now the car is giving us alerts that it needs an oil change.
Is this a common malfunction in this type of car, or do I have to take it in? I’d rather not take it in

Repair guy just told me this is cosmetic but looking at the depth and size I'm not sure about that. Would really appreciate 2nd opinions I'd hate for this thing to blow especially since it's in front.
My battery is a bit swollen, my car does start up fine. Does anyone recommend to change the battery ASAP or can I drive the car like this for a while? and like my car battery is a bit swollen does this mean my car alternator is going bad?
My dear wife dropped a box on my left hand wing mirror... Had to super-glue, gaffer tape and put two plastic garden attaches on the hinge , so now it wont fold in.
Are the spinning thing's in a car wash strong enough to break it again. ?
I put the Yokohama Geolander HTS on my Honda Element a few months back.
On the pluses - I love the handling (more responsive in turns) and the road noise has gone down.
On the negatives - at 32 psi front and 34 psi rear, the acceleration seems to have taken a hit and my MPG have gone down about 2 mpg.
