    Slowing down/Speeding up issue

    Moisture in the car's distributor cap can cause a car to jerk when accelerating. This is a common scenario when the car is parked outdoors and the weather is cold. Where are you located? Is it below freezing where you live?

    Spilled degreaser in trunk

    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.

    2011 Chrysler 200 Electrical Problems

    The starter relay is in the power distribution box in the engine compartment. It should be marked on the lid of the box.

    Rust repair estimate

    So obviously the fluid film is not too thick as it has to be reapplied eventually. Hope this helped!

    Rust repair estimate

    So this one guy replied saying quote: "I use it on my Hustler X-One to help the grass not stick. From what I hear it is an excellence rust inhibitor....though it is not permanent and has to be reapplied. "

    Rust repair estimate

    Hi Matt, It's good to hear from you again. Sadly, neither of the products that you listed did I ever purchase or had experience using them. If you would like, I'll run your question on a few others forums I'm currently on and we'll see what we can do from there. Must say...those Fender Hash Mark stripes look pretty awesome. It'll probably look even more hot on your (yellow) beast. lol

    choosing suv's

    Curious to know what years you are looking at. And if you have considered the Rav4?

    choosing suv's

    This all depends on what matters most to you. Each of these SUV's will have their pro and cons. There are all different. For example the Jeep Compass is perfect for the occasional off-roader but it is not the best in acceleration or power. The Kia Sportage has awesome warranty and good fuel economy. Again, what matters most to you? What are you looking for in a SUV? Is it fuel economy? Power? Ground clearance? AWD? Towing capacity? Luxury? Space? Comfort? Or even looks? These are questions you have to answer for yourself. They cannot be determined by another...

    Main brake cylinder

    First of all, this car ( Toyota Picnic) isn't even sold where I live. Sometimes the stroke of the cylinder is of different length. The only way to tell would be to physically compare them side by side to see for sure.

    I agree Matt, that's a wise decision. Thanks for the update. Hope everything works out for you, bud.

    Transmission issues

    Have it checked. You might have a transmission fluid leak. One of the main causes of a transmission fluid leak is a gap in your transmission. This is hard to narrow down as it could be a space in a pan gasket, torque converter, fluid lines, the transmission pan, or the seals.

    95 Corolla Radio Problem

    The dome light in your car is supposed to come on when one of the doors is open, as long as the light is put on the proper setting. If the dome light does not come on, the switch may be in the wrong position or there may be a problem with the vehicle. Does the dome light come on even when the doors are closed?

    Need help with my brakes!

    Air in the brake system will make your brake pedal feel spongy and vague. You should flush the fluid every two or three years, it can be a moderately difficult DIY repair. Despite the new pads all around, the brake pedal still feels spongy and low. You need to bleed your brakes.

    AZ to WA in a 96 civic

    You should be able to make it. I have not driven the route personally, but just by looking at the map / satellite photos and how spread out the towns are, I'd make sure that my vehicle was in top-notch condition and that I topped off the gas tank frequently. I'd also make sure that I had some water and food with me just in case of a breakdown. What time of year are you planning to make this trip? How long do you have to get from Tucson to Marysville?
