If you don’t already know, I’d go back to whoever “tuned it up” and ask them exactly what was changed and adjusted etc., as part of the “tune up”. Whatever is wrong is not necessarily their fault, but the first thing I’d suspect is something that was recently changed or adjusted if the car was […]
My guess is that since you changed your battery 3 weeks ago, it could be the altinator (this recharges the battery). I would take the car to the mechanic, explain what happened and that you think the battery has an issue recharging. Heating, lights, A/C and other things drain the battery on the car much […]
When im driving should i completely remove my foot off the break if im not using it same with gas ti go faster or should i just keep it?
Use the right foot for the gas and the brake pedal. Using your left foot on the brake pedal is a bad habit and you’ll end up wearing the brakes out faster as well as driving with your brake lights on all the time.
Timbo (who suggests legal action), and others who suggest erecting a fence have, in my opinion, the best suggestions. Talk to a lawyer about what’s happening. If you live in an area with a Home Owners Association, you may complain there. If not, you can always hit ’em where it hurt, even women, I’m talking […]
The thermostat regulates the engine coolant temperature, so having the cooling fan on all the time will not have any ill affect, to the engine, at all. What will happen is the cooling fan motor will wear out a bit faster and the alternator will work a teensy-weensy bit more to power the fan motor, […]
Engaging the clutch. The method of this goes against the grain of many young peoples’ thinking processes. It’s really simple. If you want to learn faster and make the clutch last longer, then don’t push on the gas pedal until the car is moving and the clutch pedal is up all the way. Just learn […]
How do I determine if a front wheel bearing on a car is bad? . Is there any way to look at it physically and determine it is bad?
You did not say if the bearings are a sealed unit or are they a tapered bearing? You can inspect a tapered bearing by cleaning it and looking where the rollers ride (the race) for pits the and the rollers will also show pits. A sealed bearing will only show a roughness when turning and […]
Repeatedly like thousands of times. YES The main problem on a slippery road is when you skid and then HIT something. As you were turning onto YOUR street going past YOUR neighbour, and MY children. I assume this was not some High Speed Stunt.for your Mothers Pleasure. You car should be able to handle this […]
The battery should have been fine for 3 months. Don’t ignore the problem. Just leave the cables on with the Hyundai running for 10 minutes or so to charge the Vectra battery some before starting. Car sizes have nothing to do with it. You just don’t want to try and start a huge engine with […]
Lug wrench. Tire iron. Breaker bar and socket. You can get the famous “four way” lug wrench. Source(s):General automotive mechanic since 1972
