  • Do you think it was right for GM to layoff all those workers?

    Best answer: Saudi Arabia has glutted the oil market to lower fuel prices to get the world to forget about you know what. This has caused car buyers to forgo buying fuel efficient cars for the near and not so near future.

GM and Ford are just trying to have some foresight and not be stuck with gobs of inventory that they can't even give away. Just being business smart. Other companies are feeling this SUV and truck shift also.

  • In a manual car is it okay to shift into neutral anytime I am coming to a stop?

    Best answer: Yes, absolutely fine. Modern cars have efficient brakes and ABS so the need for gear changes to assist deceleration is unnecessary.

  • How long should my car be in the shop?

    A couple days ago the clamp on my exhaust pipe broke, so I took it into an auto repair shop to get it fixed. I figured it wouldn't be long because it's a minor problem and should be fixed relatively easily. I took it in at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday and it's now 3:00 p.m. Thursday, two days later.

    A couple days ago the clamp on my exhaust pipe broke, so I took it into an auto repair shop to get it fixed. I figured it wouldn't be long because it's a minor problem and should be fixed relatively easily. I took it in at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday and it's now 3:00 p.m. Thursday, two days later. This was an average local auto repair shop. I know you can't give me exact answers, but can anyone with similar past experiences tell me how long this might take? I thought it would be done by yesterday, and definitely by now. And please don't tell me I should've made an appointment, I know that now, I just wanna know when I can expect my car back because it's very inconvenient not having one.

    Best answer: Look and see who made the remote starter you have, and look online for their company website. They should be able to sell you an extra, or tell you what will work with it. Clean it off,take a closeup picture and get the model number.

    It also changes the fuel injector pulse rates and the ignition timing.
    Cars with can advance systems may also have the cam timing effected.
    Use ECO mode if you're traveling cross a flat .desert.

  • Does following the dealerships regular maintenance keep the car healthy and make it last longer?

    Best answer: Generally yes. They have a reputation to uphold (the car make is long lasting helps every dealership that deals in that model.) VW had a very in depth maintenance schedule and the car lasted a long time. Honda and Toyota follow the same maintenance procedures as VW did.

  • Does anyone know were I can take this viper alarm car key remote to get the batteries replaced?

    Best answer: If my mechanic said he/she used Mobil 5w-30 in everything I would run. Doesn't fit the weight requirement of any car I own.

    If you are worried about warranty make sure you follow any spec in your owners manual, I couldn't check that out without model and engine. But at very least 2017 Sentra and Pathfinders call for Grade SN 0w-20, also not compatible with 5w-30.

    I can't think of anybody who thinks Mobil 1 is not good oil, I personally can't justify the price, and isn't in manufacturers approval for at least one car I used to own.

    There are various claims about who makes Nissan oil, most common claim is Total, which is a popular brand in Europe, you often can see their sponsorship in various FIA races (including F1), but there isn't any definite proof. Remember Nissan is controlled by Renault, so a European brand wouldn't be odd. Also just a claim of "synthetic" is confusing, some oils sold in the US as synthetic couldn't be called synthetic in many European countries.
