  • Driving a 98 ford ranger 20k miles a year?

    98 ranger 180k miles in phenomenal shape but my new job Has a decent commute and I’d be driving about 20-25k miles. Regardless of the gas mileage is it ok to drive a truck that old that much? It’s all high way miles about 55 mph very few turns and very little stop and go. Thank you.

    My car was completely dead so i had to jump with my dad's car and ran into Sam's club. I have Toyota Corolla LE car but i don't why i accidentally told worker at the vehicle motor that I have Toyota Corolla SE. I guess they put SE new battery in my LE car. After they change the battery, my car engine was fine as usual and it does start. But I realized I was talking about the wrong car version to vehicle worker, when i just got home. Is it okay to drive with this SE battery? Or should I go to Sam's club and change the right version? I don't know if it's safe to have SE battery rather than LE. Do you think it might have problem if I keep driving with wrong battery? I don't know SE battery has bigger size or smaller size then LE. PLEASE HELP ME OUT WHAT I HAVE TO DO! I'm afraid that this will damage my car :((

  • Checking the oil in car makes no sense?

    If I check it when it's hot it will be a quart low, if I check it when the car is cold it is full. Should I add two more quarts?

    car got totaled got paid out for it but it was a hand me down car from my parents that i helped pay for under the table since i drove it the most. i got NO credit, minimum waged job/low paying job so income is low in general. the car i want is about $40k msrp ( dream car ) but i know that is unrealistic in my circumstance. right now im saving up cash to just buy out a cheaper car around say $16-18k. is this my BEST option? i was planning to save up cash, drop it all on as downpayment by then i should have decent credit and then get a loan for say the remaining which will likely be around $20-30k. is this possible or would i not get approved to begin with if im aiming for that $40k car? also at this rate would i be better off buying a new car or used one with the income and situation i am in? im looking at used cars they go for almost around $16-18k with lower mileage but then i look at the same cars brand new they are basically slightly towards the $18-19k off the lot. im basically just trying to get a car ASAP in the end idgaf what kind of car it is as long as it won't break down or cause major issues shortly after thus why i want something on the newer end but open to used cars as well

  • Can you push a car with a manual transmission if it is in first gear?

    Best answer: Why do you want to push a car with the transmission in first gear? If you push it in neutral, it will push a lot easier. If the point is to turn the engine to make it start, because the starter is not working, then you could push it and let the clutch pedal up with the ignition on, and the engine may start.

    Best answer: Why do you want to push a car with the transmission in first gear?

    If you push it in neutral, it will push a lot easier.

    If the point is to turn the engine to make it start, because the starter is not working, then you could push it and let the clutch pedal up with the ignition on, and the engine may start.

    Why you would want to push a car with the transmission in gear, when the point is not to start the engine, is strange.

    If you are just asking if turning the engine by pushing a car with the manual transmission in gear will damage the transmission, then the likely answer is no (within sensibility).

    But if you pushed the car 60 mph in first gear, then there would likely be damage to the engine.

    I'm just not sure the context of your question.

    If the engine can move the car through the transmission, then the car can move the engine through the transmission.

    have a couple questions related to buying/used cars. 1. is insurance typically cheaper for older cars? say 3+ years older or what actually dictates the price of insurance? 2. what are good car brands and models to buy that are reliable? i can only think of 2 that people say are reliable but i have no knowledge of cars in general; honda civics and subaru's 3. for someone who is buying used but whats to keep the car in good running shape for many years to come what mileage should i be looking for? i live in Hawaii so commute for me isn't very far but i will be using this car daily. i was trying to stay away from 100k+ or close to 100k like maybe 60k but i wanted to hear from others and there thoughts on cars with higher mileage. 4. are older cars say from the 90's worth buying versus early 2000 models? i was looking at intergra's from the 90's they look alright imo, fairly cheap but since they are older imo not sure what i should expect when it comes to maintenance.

  • Driver indicated left but moved over right then suddenly turned left hitting me as i passed who is at fault?

    Best answer: To clarify, where are you? From your description it sounds like you drive on the left, but the exact road rule still depends on where you are. Added: Well I suppose it doesn't matter. In any case, where I live, a car is permitted in a bus lane for 30 metres before doing a left turn. This stands to reason... show more
    Best answer: To clarify, where are you? From your description it sounds like you drive on the left, but the exact road rule still depends on where you are.

    Added: Well I suppose it doesn't matter. In any case, where I live, a car is permitted in a bus lane for 30 metres before doing a left turn. This stands to reason because it would be insane for vehicles to do a full turn across a lane of traffic in any circumstance. If that's the case at your place, it seems your driver has done something I see increasingly, which is to think he is not permitted in a bus lane at all. I've seen numerous near misses because of this.

    And yes, a driver's blind spot is not a good place for a motorcyclist to pop out of suddenly. It's possible to be right and dead.
