Told them to check out the noise in the rear end, he said the pinion bearing is on its way out and they want to change out a couple of things (the gears are all OK), total cost $2672. This...

    Cheap code readers

    Saw a code reader on Amazon for $35 that gives live readings and has a decent rating. I have zero interest in paying a lot for a nice code reader, is this the best one I can get for under $50? In case the link does not work...

    Why would a tire come off?

    Good friend of the family had the front left tire come off his truck while driving down the road at a decent speed. Speculation amongst the females is that it was from over tightened lug nuts. I said 99.9754% chance it was from lug nuts not being tightened correctly (ie not tightened enough) Can...

    07 Mustang Fuel Pressure Sensor error

Luckily the sensor sits right on top of everything, but Im not certain if that is the problem, hoping it is not the fuel pump...

    Allstate Milewise

    My truck now sits idle most of the time and I decided to shop around for insurance since my current provider wants me to pay $500/year for a truck that is worth $2k and gets driven less than 2,000 miles a year. I googled around and found Allstate's Milewise, also gave them a call and they said...

    Alignment good then bad

    I purchased the 2007 Mustang GT last September from a private seller. He disclosed (and it was obvious) that his aunt who was the owner drove the car into a ditch. The alignment was way off but still driveable. I took the car to Firestone and they aligned it and gave me a fancy printout. Ever...

    Ford "quick connect" thingy broken

    I pulled a fuel filter off my 96 F150 today and i guess i damaged both of the quick connectors. I assume that Autozone or NAPA carries some kind of replacement and that I can cut the nylon line and plug the replacement connector in. Any tips or advice are appreciated.

    I saw a windshield? fly off of a car.

    Yesterday while driving on I-95 a car in front of me had something fly off at highway speed, i was not too far behind the car and at first thought it was something like the lid of one of those huge tupperware containers. But when it hit the ground (luckily not in one of the lanes of traffic) it...

    Is it the alternator?

Got a jump and made it home but everything was dying, even the speedometer didn't work. Put the battery on a charger overnight and...

    Stripped threads on oil pan

    Last oil change I replaced the drain plug on mom's 04 Pilot. Used an AZ part that I confirmed again today was the correct thread and size. Pulling it out today it was kind of stubborn but I attributed it to being new. Went to put it back in and about the fourth pull of the socket wrench I knew...

    My 09 Vue FWD has started making a clicking sound when in reverse and moving with the wheels turning. When I back out of my driveway, which is on a steep hill I just put the trans into N and coast clicking. If I put it in R and keep the wheel straight then no clicking. In forward no...
