  • Car Accident Dilemma, Am I Screwed?

    Recently, I let a friend drive my vehicle. I am covered through Progressive Car Insurance, and only had Liability Coverage on my vehicle. When I let him drive my vehicle, he got into an accident where he was at fault, and hit a pole. Upon striking the pole, both airbags in my vehicle deployed and the car was declared totaled. His insurance is through Nationwide. While still in this battle between insurance companies, and them debating on which one of them is going to pay for the public property damage, I am stuck with no means of transportation and find myself wondering. Since I wasn’t behind the wheel, obviously not at fault, would his insurance possibly pay for me to get a replacement vehicle?

  • Is it ok to drive in the middle of two lanes?

    Best answer: You would need a very very wide car to do this. Do you mean drive in the sides of 2 adjacent lanes and be a roadhog?

    Best answer: Don't waste your time guessing. Get a new drain plug and crush washer. Clean the surface. Put the crush washer and TORQUE the drain plug using a torque wrench.

    please don’t make any rude comments because i’ve already had a lot of time to think abut my mistake, but i am 19 years old with a pending dui. i’m working towards getting privileges but in order to do that i need a car and insurance, and i’m not sure if it depends on the type of insurance you have or what but i wrecked into a fire hydrant and i was with all state at the time, and it’s about 5 grand to pay the fire hydrant off, not to mention i was a high risk driver. i don’t have a new car yet and i know insurance depends on the type of car but let’s just say it’s a basic four door car, like a honda civic for example. i’m just looking for the general amount i’d be looking at. thank you in advance

  • Can my new insurance company pay for this?

    Three months ago I tapped someone from behind in my moms car (which is now my car). I wasn’t on her insurance and I received a letter in the mail stating that I have to pay $800 to a collection agency. Now that I have my own insurance on the same car, could I file a claim with them?

  • Do my carburetors on my motorcycle need to be cleaned or replaced?

    I have a brand new bike that's been sitting at my shed for about 6 years. The idle speed seems to be too low because sometimes it stalls when I go on very low speeds. Although it only has 50 miles on it, does the carburetors need to be cleaned or replaced? Or do I simply use the idle speed adjustment?

  • Is there a chance my car battery is not charging due to some other problem?

    Best answer: Not being charged or not accepting a charge are 2 of the possibilities. Running the engine for 10 minutes can't charge a battery more than about 2% It needs to be charged 6-10 hours with a 10 amp charger. That's 360 to 600 minutes.

    Best answer: Not being charged or not accepting a charge are 2 of the possibilities.

    Running the engine for 10 minutes can't charge a battery more than about 2%

    It needs to be charged 6-10 hours with a 10 amp charger. That's 360 to 600 minutes.

    Then take the battery to an auto parts store and let them test the capacity of the battery. That woll tell you if the battery has a problem.

    Another simple test would be to measure the battery voltage while the engine is idling with the headlights on. You should see around 14.4 volts.

    If the voltage is below around 13.7 volts, your alternator may be the problem. If the voltage is below 13.0 volts, then your charging system is not working.

    p.s. Somehow, I missed seeing your second paragraph! Just get a new battery. If it is 14 years old, it's no longer usable.

    If it has been unused and dead for 2 years, it is no longer ussble.

I have to wait on them to look at the car before they can tell me anything else, and get the police report, but after that they said we would get a check. I'm assuming it's only for the value of my car. I was wonder if anyone knew for sure though. Also my air bag didn't go off, but I smacked my head super hard on the steering wheel. I said I was fine, but I've been having a bad headache all week and my body is extremely sore. Think that's worth a lawsuit? Thanks for any replies guys.
