  1. They repaired the scratched the hard way. That makes me laugh!
  2. [HELP] Scraped front bumper on leased car

    Wash water over it if he scratches dissapear it’s only in the clear coat and an easy fix if not it might be considered damage. Use this if you want to fix it yourself.
  3. Why is my KIA Quoris slow and sluggish?

    Con at the manufacturer and ask about recalls it may be an issue with the computer. If enough people report the issue then it could get recalled and fixed. it also could be an issue with the gearbox. Have the engine looked over and look for issues with gears slipping specifically. It’s either the gears slipping or the computer.
  4. Bottom rust

    It may jut need a good wire brushing and sanding then protective coat. Nothing looks eaten away. If it concerns you enough find a local mechanic and ask them to look at it if thy aren’t concerned then it’s just some cleaning and nothing more.
  5. Yes! No worries! Please let me know how it turns out! Also get your carbon detector checked and your radon tested just Incase! You can’t be too safe when it comes to your kids!
  6. Odd wear on tires..

    Few questions to ask yourself as well. Are you driving on dirt roads? Uneven asphalt? Roads in need of repair? Lots of pot holes? If so that’s part of the issue. Or most of the issue. I suggest changing your daily route and driving on better maintained roads just for check. If wear is still uneven. Your camber May be too much or an alignment issue. Or the sway bar. Try finding a local mechanic not a chain or dealer. Locals will be more likely to give you the correct diagnosis and charge you more reasonable prices in order to compete with chains. Also go to discount tire. You may be putting on cheap tyres. Discount will suggest the best deal for your price range. Investing an extra 100$-200$ into your tyres will make a lot of difference in saftey and wear as well. i hope I helped! Good luck!
  7. If the car hasn’t moved and is in no condition to drive then you probably could call hoa or if they lease call the owners and force them to move it. Chances are the smell is from a leaking gas tank or oil. Not enough to be concerned about it exploding but if your house smells bad enough to concern you due to it and you have enough reasonable thought that it is the van then call fire to speak to the owners. They should sell or scrap a car that is inoperable no exceptions
  8. 1998 Civic LX Issues

    Hello everyone! I have a few issues with my car. I’ve had it about 5 years now and am the second owner over all so it means most issues are due to age or myself. I’ll separate as many as I can i’m Only looking for possible easy solutions I can do at home. I understand it’s probably best to take it to a mechanic for most issues but I don’t have the 2k+ for most issues. Just over a year ago I got into an accident which bent my gram slightly on the passenger side hood. Only significant damage is a bent hood slightly bent frame and bumper is cracked but won’t fall off. I’m not too worried about replacing them or fixing them mostly because it is a 90% cosmetic issue. Small rust forming that I can easily repair myself. The main issue stemming from it is that the frame is holding in one of my fluids which could cause and issue if I need to remove parts in that area. next issue (caused by me) ran my oil on low for just over a year. Mostly due to barely making 1k a month not enough for bills the oil change light never came on. Now I know that’s no excuse for not taking care of my only form of transport. But this is my first car gimme a break. I think it may be an issue with my computer as my gas light never came on and my check engine light never comes on when I have major issues. Always when it’s something small and stupid hat I can fix for cheap. So it concerns me a lot as I love my car very much. It took me a few years to realize it’s my most valuable possession. So of course I want to fix it up. And putting in my own work is what will encourage me to keep it in tip top shape. next issue is my paint. I have seen videos online about redoing your own paint I am looking for suggestions on the best way to do it. My clear coat is cracked due to age and Honda using crappy products also no one took care of it before I got it. Like I said if I can do the whole car myself that would be best! last issue timing belt is due for change but I have a rattle in the engine occurring when I accelerate from a slow speed. It goes away when i’m At higher speeds about 50mph and higher. My guess is the timing belt and something is loose which will probably fix the issue the moment the belt is replaced. This one is more of a mystery than the rest. i can give more info on the secs of the car if it helps just let me know! This car is gonna be my super project for the next 5 or so years. Want to repaint it black and interior white and completely blacked out. With racing seats and tear out the back seats to extend the trunk. (Thinking of converting it to manual but not sure due to effort of doing so) i know very little about cars and fixing them but it would be nice to learn how to take care of mine. Especially since my dream car is a ‘73 Ford falcon XB GT coupe. any and all tips and advice are welcome! Thank you in advance! ❤️❤️❤️
  9. Charger r/t or Cadillac CTS V

    Your very welcome i’m Curious as to whic one you went with! Let me know!
  10. Just seeing physical condition and not taking in future maintenance the eclipse is the better deal. Make sure to see both in person and test drive. Double check the mileage. If the Miata has more than 150k it’s not worth the 3k they want. Take a mechanic friend with you and ask about recent mantinence. Edit: the eclipse is much better choice. Especially with the timing done at 120k that leaves you with 50k to go before you should check it. Pads, battery, and rotors are easy fixes. Just watch for alternated and wheels/tires because it sat for just over a year. Factor in all those costs and you only add at the most another grand and it’s the better deal still. Check the year on tires if they are over 5 years get prepared to change them. Other wise from what I read eclipse is the way to go.
  11. Charger r/t or Cadillac CTS V

    The charger is no longer a muscle car. I wouldn’t even touch it. The only thing they have going for them is the looks and that’s not enough to get a muscle car fanatic like me to touch it. And as a valet. I hate them. They are too large for the lack of engine in them. They could get a ton more power in a hood that size. Sorry dodge. Go with the CTS V if you baby it you can keep on top of mantinence. Be sure to bring a top notch mechanic with you when you go to look at them. They can see anything wrong it’s it just by start up sound idling sound and looks. Watch for brakes, clutch, transmission, and timing belt on it too. If any of those are looking close to needing to repair then make sure to negotiate that possible cost into purchase. Always! And of course air conditioning.
  12. Need help identifying this car

    Body shots help to I’d cars. But it might be a cobra but the logo looks like a knock off attempt.
  13. want my car to be louder... help

    Start with a supercharger and dual exhausts. Outside of that your running the risk of people calling it a river. Make sure it’s got function whatever you put on it!
  14. i need help identifying this car

    It definitely is question is what year because the logo is slightly off.
  15. Mad Max Interceptor

    I’m looking to build the Black on Black from Mad max. I’m using road warrior as most of the inspiration. I have a small idea so far of what to do with it. I have no monetary limit. I only intend to put the highest quality in and on it. The image I have attached is just a rough sketch. If anyone has idea for the sound system and brakes. Or any parts at all i’m Open to them! Like I said only the best will be placed on my baby. i I tend to by the blueprints from Ford to build it from scratch so I can reinforce it to handle a much stronger engine. The intention is to only use forged parts on as much of the engine as possible to ensure it will be as strong as possible. Again in open to all suggestions! I will be doing the matte black from the first movie not the rust paint from the second.
