  1. Hey guys, I made a rookie mistake. I accidentally forgot I had a screw in my hand and when I went down to look under the car. My hand had popped against the front bumper releasing the screw to land right on top of my Intercooler. Upon trying to get it out I pushed it further right between the radiator and Intercooler. At this point I’m assuming it has dropped on the splash guard, but if not what risk does this impose when I’m driving. Will it be fine? Thank you for your time! the picture below is where it landed and than the arrow points to where it has gone to.
  2. 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!!!

  4. I've been looking into the rx8 for a while now and I've seen on many forums that you have to care for the engine properly so that it doesn't get damaged. So what are the steps to take care of your engine to keep it healthy?
  5. Hello there, New to this forum and relatively new to the world of cars. I have been trying to get my first car on and off for about a year now. I have decided that I want to get a pre 05 Toyota sienna. My budget is going to be around 5000 im trying to get one for around 3k and then put 2-3k of work into it at a mechanic. That's where this forum comes in! Im in the nyc area so I assume if I search ill be able to find a decent one since there are always plenty listed. Once this happens and after the mechanic inspects it what work would you guys recommend I have preemptively done to it? Obviously ill need to remedy any problems the mechanic and prior owner note. I read somewhere that putting in a new set of sensors and electronics is a good investment. Just putting my thoughts on here. Anyways, just trying to see what others think. Thanks in advance for the help.
  6. I have a 350 chevy small block in my 79 camaro and the power steering belt is constantly slackening. I have not driven the car more than a few hundred yards because its not yet street legal so it is not becoming loose due to it just stretching like normal over the first 100 miles. I have a brand new power steering belt and have replaced the power steering pump as well. i have tightened the belt twice now after i have just run the car for a couple minutes without it going anywhere and each time it slips back to where it is loose again. I have tightened all the bolts and it keeps doing it so I'm not sure what to do now. Any and all answers or advice are appreciated. thanks!

  10. Hello everybody. So, this morning, I start my car, and everything was fine for a while. After stopping on one of the 20 or so traffic lights I go thorugh on my way to the office, I notice that the car does not seem to be accelerating that well. It gets to 40-45 eventually, but not as fast as it normally would. I stop to get something to eat, and when I put the car in idle before shutting off the engine, the engine shuts off by itself. I've had this happen to me before a few years ago, and it turned out to only be a broken exhaust system hose, which after a $45 fix, stopped happening. I start the engine again after eating, only this time, after I reach 30 MPH or thereabouts, the car shuts down. When I bring the car to a complete stop and try to start the engine again, I hear a "disengaged" crank, and the engine does not start. I keep trying to start the engine, and over the course of the next few minutes, the cranking starts sounding more and more 'engaged' during every start attempt, until the engine starts again, and I can drive again - as long as I do not go over 30 MPH or thereabouts. I wanted to check and see if anybody here has had something like this happen before, or has any idea what this could be. Car is a 2002 Ford Escort ZX-2. Thank you.

  15. I didn't see this leak until this morning when I came back to work. My car was parked in this spot all day yesterday while at work. I pulled up and saw it and I figure it came from my car as I doubt anyone else parked there. I work as a nanny so I work in someone's home, leaving my car parked in a driveway. The family I work for keep their cars parked in the garage. As you can see from the pics, it is on the left passenger side and more towards the middle of the car. The color is hard to tell in the pics but from outside, it looks brown. I don't know if this could just be because it has been sitting there for a long while or not, though. I'd hope that if the family I work for noticed a red leak (like transmission fluid) in their driveway after I had left, that they would say something about it. But maybe not. I always thought transmission fluid doesn't soak in to pavement like that, as whatever this is, seems to have done. It isn't from my AC. I use my AC very minimally and I get here very early in the morning, 6AM, so I wouldn't even need it in the first place. Plus, I prefer having my windows down. I've been having a few symptoms which I've been unable to explain or figure out. My car hesitates while driving. It does not hesitate while accelerating or decelerating. Only when driving at high speeds. It seems to do it worse the longer I drive it, and sometimes (it's not always the case) after the engine warms up. Sometimes, it doesn't do it at all. I can't figure out when and why it happens. I just know that it does. I also need new tires badly, so I don't know if this could have an affect on the hesitation feeling or not. I say feeling, because it is hard to explain. It really feels kinda like a hiccup, more so than a "hesitation." I have a 2000 Dodge Neon. I have replaced a few minor things over the last two weeks. I had head gasket valves replaced. PCV pipe and valve replaced. Gas hose replaced. And the lower radiator hose replaced. My dad did all of this for me. And he also did a coolant flush when he replaced the radiator hose. I had it inspected two weeks ago when I went and got an oil change.. but I took it to Firestone, and they didn't do a very good inspection at all. I'm planning on taking it by a local transmission place ASAP, but it's hard to manage a time slot because I work full time and this place is only open on weekdays!! Grr! If it's a transmission leak, how much might it cost to fix this? I actually just bought this car almost three weeks ago from a dealer for pretty cheap ($1500). But it took me a long time to save just that small amount, because I've had school loans/bills to pay off (and still do.) I just need a car to get me to work and back. I won't use it for anything else. I drive about 20 miles a day and that is it. But it is going to really suck if this is a huge, costly fix. I'm not even sure it'd be worth it at this point as I believe the car is on it's last leg anyways, and will probably only last me a year or two.. which is really all the time I needed it for anyways. It's got 148,098 miles on it right now. Any assistance or expertise would be helpful. I know it's hard to diagnose without looking at the car yourself, but suggestions would be great. Thanks.
  16. Hello, I own a vauxhall combo van 1.3 07 reg. I've been having trouble, where I accelerate to near 70, and the engine management light comes on and the vehicle runs in 'safe mode' where there is very little power and it's very sluggish. I was told it was a MAP sensor so I had it replace, but this did not fix the problem. I took it to two garages one told me I needed a new turbo which I questioned immediately. Another ran a diagnostic, and that it is the boost pressure sensor needed replacing and that will fix the problem, and the reason the other garage said replace the turbo was because they're too lazy to fit the pressure sensor. Is there anything else that could be causing the problem, and is my garage right to replace the pressure sensor? Thank you

  18. I have a 2011 Suzuki alto and I've been trying to find out if I'm able to supercharge it. It is only 50kw at the moment and slows right down up hills. The engine specs are 50kw 1.0L 998cc 3-cylinder twin cam. I wouldn't know what surcharger to buy and I don't want to blow up my engine (understandably) either. Any suggestions would be great thanks

Vast types of services are offered by car servicing companies, some of these services are, engine modification, fuel changing, car tuning etc. Remember, inspection of a vehicle is a complicated process and there are so many complications that are involved in it therefore it is vital to take the help of an expert so that he can easily perform every type of checks for you.
