    Youtube will help you my friend. Just watch tons of videos, then build up your experience and tools slowly. Start with small tasks, such as fluid changes and headlight bulb changes, things like that. You're lucky you have the space though.....I have a sloped dirt driveway and that's it. If I want to do work, most of the time I have to drive to a parking lot and do it there.

    -22???? Dang, feels like I'm in a spa now. Currently it's 0. When we were doing the cars, it was like 28. Problem was we had a real bad ice storm and it left like an inch of ice on everything.

    Hi there! My name is Alex and I am 17 years young, and I just signed up for this forum. I am looking for a new car to replace my 2000 Honda Civic EX. The only real problem here is that my insurance will go sky high if I get any vehicle classified as a truck, sports car, or a jeep. My price range is right at 7k, and I need something that looks good. I don't want a stupidly fast car, the only kind of speed I really go for is when the red light turns green and I book it. So something quick, friendly to work on, and fun to drive. Anybody got any ideas?

    The following is a quick guide you can use to remember Routine Maintenance Checks for your vehicle. Doing these Routine checks may seem like a hassle, but they could save you time and money in the long run. Try to get yourself into some good habits while driving and maintaining your vehicle. 1. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS EACH TIME YOU USE YOUR CAR Check the tires for low pressure. If you do see a low tire, look for nails, screws, or other foreign objects that could cause a puncture. Check the outside for new damage. This is especially important if you are parked in a public parking area. If someone has damaged your vehicle, take pictures for your insurance company. Look for leaks. After leaving a parking spot, glance back and check for signs of a fresh puddle. When you walk away from your parked car, look for dripping liquid. Read This Article About Identifying Your Car’s Fluids: 2. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS EACH TIME YOU GET FUEL Check your fluids. Check the level and condition of your engine oil every time you fill up. The other fluids that have a see-through reservoir like coolant and brake fluid only require a quick glance to see their levels are correct. Inspect belts and hoses. Take a look at your belts and hoses to look for abnormal wear. Use caution when touching a hot engine—a visual inspection is sufficient. Also, look for leaks around the engine compartment and under the car. Check tire pressure. This is a good time to check your tires for proper inflation. Frequent checking is the best way to maximize the life of your tires. Clean your windows and wiper blades. If a squeegee and towels are available, take advantage of them. Keeping your wipers and windshield clean will extend the life of your wipers. 3. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS EACH OIL CHANGE Whether you change your own oil or have it done by someone else, you should perform the fill-up inspections as well as the following: Inspect your tires for abnormal wear and damage. Check your fluids. In addition to checking the levels, look at the fluids while the engine is cold, and check their condition. Inspect and lubricate the chassis. Check for underside problems and issues with the suspension when lubricating the chassis. Inspect the belts and hoses. With the engine cold, do a thorough inspection of the belts and hoses. Look for signs of leaking around the engine. Check the air filter. Check the external lights. Turn on your lights and make sure all your lights are working, including your turn signal and brake lights. Also, check the small bulb over your license plate. Inspect your battery. Inspect and clean the battery contacts if needed. Look for damage to the cables. 4. ROUTINE MAINTENANCE CHECKS EVERY OTHER OIL CHANGE In addition to the previously described checks, add the following to your list: Rotate the tires. Check automatic transmission fluid and power steering fluid. These are both usually checked while the engine is running. Check the fuel cap. Look for cracking and debris around the seal area. Check the seat belts. Check the belts for fraying and damage, and check the retractors to make sure they are working properly. Check weather stripping and seals. Check the door seals and weatherstripping for tears, breaks, or damage. Check computer codes. The computer should illuminate a dashboard icon if there’s a problem, but it doesn’t hurt to check for codes periodically. Read more on Virmoda.com

    I am not a fan of Mazda cars so I personally don't recommend any of these cars. If you want reliable car I would suggest Honda. Price wise Kia would be optimal choice.

    Hi guys, I'm a new member. I want to buy a BMW M4 via https://incacar.com/all/cars/bmw/m4/ but I´m a bit worried about that, just if they are reliable. Is there someone who knows them, or bought a car from them? What do you think about that? Thanks for answers.

    I personally would recommend going with a Honda or a Toyota manufacturer because from my experience those vehicle can take a lot of beating. https://www.bcrautomotiveinc.com

    Currently drive a 2005 Corolla LE, and have since 2006. Car has 140k miles and I want an upgrade. Found a 2016 Corolla S Plus, 6-speed with 23k miles listed as $13,999 from an independent dealer. The car is super clean, no accidents, one owner, moonroof, and dealership says it was likely a former lease. It's beautiful. Anyway, they said they would buy my old car only if it could serve them to resell it, but my car, despite running great (as expected from that generation of Corolla), has had a small fender bender (doesn't affect performance), and has the Check Engine light on. Check Engine light I was told by my mechanic is from the transmission clutch solenoid, and is an expensive fix so I never did it. Plus the tire icon light is on despite my tires being fine. Mechanic said that's an electrical and dealership repair but I never did it either. Doesnt seem worth it. The car drives excellent like I said, and will likely last for many years to come if kept it. Anyway, I think I'll just sell my current car privately but am wondering HOW MUCH I should sell it for given its issues I stated? Plus how much should I try to negotiate for the new Corolla? Do you think I can get them down to $11,999? I'm planning on paying straight up CASH for the new car and the guy at the dealership told me a lot of people have looked at it but people don't want it because no one wants a manual transmission anymore. I on the other hand DO want one. Any advice? I'm planning on taking a trip to see the car this Saturday. It's a 64 mile trip to the dealer so I really don't want to take my old car there bc I feel like they won't want to buy it. Anyway, thanks a lot guys!

    Hey all - messaging in from Boston, MA where it is 5 degrees. My girlfriend was scraping the ice off her car's windshield and the surrounding area and accidentally broke through the plastic piece the connects the hood and the windshield (see photo attached). I know very little about cars, but am thinking that it is probably imperative that I get this covered up, as the hole is leaving the engine exposed to some pretty brutal conditions. However, the car is completely snowed in so taking it into the shop isn't really an option. Any ideas on how to cover it up in the meantime? Thanks!!!

    The muffler's only job is to muffle the sound of the engine as it is amplified through the exhaust pipe. That said, you should be able to remove the muffler without any loss of power or major issues.

    There are a lot of good quality classified websites to buy used cars. Based on my experience, I would suggest buying a used car on Motoruncle website in India for many good reasons like you get a variety of brands with options like color/price range/City wise/Fuel type etc. Just go through the motoruncle and you can find them all with the On-road price.

    I can't get an MR2, it counts as a sports car and my insurance won't let me get any kind of sports car, truck, or jeep. Same for the Celica

    I've got a Cobalt Coupe, I like it alot, maybe that would interest you. Perhaps also a Toyota Celica or a Toyota MR2 would interest you also. All of these cars would be fairly fun to drive if they're a 5 speed manual, I think they look decent, and they're not too hard or expensive to work on.

    Thanks for sharing this! However, car accidents can be prevented if you take care of your car properly which includes attending to your scheduled car maintenance. Hope this helps!

    You're very welcome! Yeah, lots of changes in the plan, but it's for the better. I'll be using one of my parents cars to go to work sometimes, and the other times my mom can take me because our schedules sometimes line up and she works nearby me. As for school, I'll just have to take the bus all the time, no more rolling into the lot with the yellow beast anytime soon lol

    Doesn't that whole piece of carpet come out? If so, you could wash it easier. Perhaps a carpet cleaning machine with warm soap would work. I spilled a whole qt. of oil in mine a few years ago. I never took out the carpet, but I kept replacing the paper towels I used to soak it up for weeks. A carpet cleaner and a good steaming should also do the trick. The steam cleaner should take the grease out pretty easy.

    I personally think it would work but I have never done such a thing before. Since I'm all the way over here in Canada...It's hard for me to really know. In order to be safe than sorry...I'd recommend a visit to your local VW dealership with your questions. They will be able to provide you the accurate and right answers to your problem. Do you have any other questions?

    It's a two door, but it's actually technically a five seater. Here's the back. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RafwBFQD7GpLBNVzt41ZzJp-FReJAnED I think the door would fit in the back. If not though, I'm thinking maybe the guys at the junkyard could help me the get the lock and window out of my door and put the new door on, maybe. I have a friend with an SUV, and two of my uncles have trucks, but I'd rather not borrow one of theirs unless absolutely necessary. As for the roof idea, I was thinking of putting padding down, but yeah, it's probably not the best idea.
