• Is this true or are they lying?

    I have friends who claim that they change their oil every 20,000 miles and have never had any problems with cars getting over 300,000 miles. They do say they only use full synthetic oil. True or lying?

When I drive it the car stops at random times, it's dangerous. And the window doesn't work. I can't even go through a drive thru because the window won't go down. What should I do? How should I tell my parents that i hate it and that I want a new car?

  • Why did my car hydroplane?

    Best answer: Sometimes oil gets on the road and water on top of it will cause you to lose traction. You have no way of knowing if such a condition exists when approaching it.

  • Why has no car manufacturer built a modern car with a carburetor engine? (Question continues below)?

    Best answer: Emmissions regulations forced the developement of everything under the hood. Car makers would just build carburetors and simple cars if they could. The Lada in Russia was carb until 1996, cheap car trying to stay cheap. The VW bug was built from 1938 to 2003 but outlawed by emmission laws in many countries in the... show more
    Best answer: Emmissions regulations forced the developement of everything under the hood. Car makers would just build carburetors and simple cars if they could. The Lada in Russia was carb until 1996, cheap car trying to stay cheap. The VW bug was built from 1938 to 2003 but outlawed by emmission laws in many countries in the 1970's. I think it used the carb the whole time.

    I see many people calling the carb ineffecient here. A good carb design with a good mechanic on a well designed car will not get better mileage if converted to fuel injection. There is much more going on. The computer and all it's gear got added to the carb to make the catalyst converter work. The mechanical carb parts were not fast enough or durable enough, so evolution replaced them with injection. Many advancements have been made for improved combustion and emmissions on the modern car. Only in the later half of compuer's life has performance come from it.

  • Why did my SUV hydroplane?

    I was driving on the freeway in a monsoon with heavy rain and visibility of only about 100 feet. I was going downhill at only around 50mph when I spotted an overturned truck blocking my lane and the lane to the left. I immediately slammed on my brakes (equipped with ABS but light was on) but my SUV did not stop but began sliding towards the truck. I kept trying to steer away from the wreck but wouldn't move. At about 5 feet from impact, I tried steering left then quickly steered right which worked and my SUV began sliding towards the shoulder. As you can imagine I was fist pumping and celebrating when I looked back all the traffic was stopped and was watching me. I quietly drove away. So why did my SUV hydroplane and was my last desperate move something that is taught?

    I have heavy oxidation on the roof of my dark metallic car and I'm wondering if there is a way to fix it without going to the paint shop. The paint is chalky and white in some parts of the roof, but it goes away when it rains or if I put oil on it. Is there a more permanent or longer solution to fixing this problem than using oil (every couple of days) ? Also I used tr3 resin glaze and it did not work, unless i used it incorrectly. Thanks

  • My 2003 Camry has P420 code came on for about a month & now died suddenly during a long trip?

    Best answer: Make sure the O2 sensors are firmly connected up. Test them for correct voltage. See if there is any spark. If the starter turns faster than it used to, that suggests the cam belt broke and some valves are open all the time. I know you didn't say how it cranks, but check that.
