      Those cars look like they were not prepared in any way, shape, or form for rain. The cameras had no way to clear their view of water. I bet when programmed to expect rain those cars could handle is...

      I used to think all cars had essentially "infinite" power. When my dad told me he had our 4 cylinder toyota truck floored when we had a load or rocks in the bed, I was dumbfounded. :D
    3. I doubt this advice. Springs don't get "worn out"...

      I doubt this advice. Springs don't get "worn out" by staying in place. You can compress a spring once and leave it there for a very long time and when you untension it it will still be exactly the...

      Thanks for the help regardless! Also, I took a look at it, it is the line that goes directly to the filter. It goes to the bottom/lower side of the filter. Looks easy to replace, just wondering if I...

      Shmi, you are a lifesaver. The first picture on that site is the one that's leaking! I hope it's still ~$80 from the dealer (I just looked, it's not... it's $180 now.), although I have no idea how...

      Thanks for the info. The fuel filter is the shiny thing in the top left of the "clean" pic above. I'll follow it, but I don't think I should have to replace the whole hard line. It's leaking where...

      They aren't, I've replaced them recently.

      I FOUND IT. It was literally staring me in the face the entire time. Last winter when it did this (toward the end of the winter.) I had pulled the engine...

      Definitely a raw gasoline smell. However, like I mentioned, I DO have a small exhaust leak at the position you're talking about.
    9. No, it'll smell regardless of whether the heat is...

      No, it'll smell regardless of whether the heat is on or not. But even if the heat isn't on, there's still air coming through the vents. I don't think the car is ever shut off from the outside world...
    10. I hate to post this here, but please help, gas smell in 95 A6.

      Hi all,
      I hate to post this here, because it's absolutely not the right place for it, but I can't seem to find any answers anywhere else. The forums for my car are dead, and have been for years.

      *Off topic, apologies OP*

      I almost reached this point with my old Audi recently. The heater core leaked (connections, not the core itself.) The power steering leaked, it burned oil, the key stuck...

      You're telling me that Tokyo Drift is Real???!!! I mean sure, most of the F&F movies are exaggerated, but these meetups look very similar to what's in the movies... :laugh:

      I personally find wheel locks useless. I lost the key to mine years ago, and when I finally had to take the wheels off, a few oversized sockets (craftsman, lifetime warranty :D) and a small hammer...

      It's not trolling when it's true. Solar Roadways are pop-science. The kind of stuff that people love to post on youtube and rave about and try to make tons of money on, but will NEVER end up working.

      It's got a flat tire. I thought the same thing initially.

      Geeze, wtf are you guys doing in your cars that you need such bright lighting? Can you even turn those on at night without being blinded?

      Interior lights (dome light especially) are there to help...

      It's not just the stealerships, it's also the large chain car places (autozone.) I once had a slight battery drain in my car due to a bad door switch. After finally diagnosing and fixing the problem,...

      I'm 26 with no family. :) spending a few evenings working on the car isn't a big deal for me.

      As for replacing the head gasket, you're right, I've never done it on my car (alone), but I have been...
    20. At what point is it not economically reasonable to keep a car?

      Hi all,
      Quick question, for those of you who do your own work on your cars... at what point is it not economically reasonable to keep your car? I mean, for most cars it's relatively cheap to fix...
