    A couple days ago I was moving an RV trailer my friends parents gave to me. We had to move a trailer with a jetski on it and in the process of moving it I lightly bumped my friends brothers car. The only damage was to small gashes on the bumper cover and the sensor and fog light plastic popped loose. I was moving at a very slight crawl. The only reason I bumped the car was because my friends dad who was supposed to be guiding me wasnt doing his part and waited till it was too late to yell. I dont have insurance because my policy expired without my knowledge. I dont know how to go about doing this. I know I was driving but my guide didn t do his job.. what do I do

  • Is it bad to drive with a bad valve cover gasket?

    I took my car to the mechanic cause my car was leaking oil and he said the valve cover gasket was the problem. I don’t have the money to fix it right now so I said I’ll fix it some other time. Is that something that needs to be fix right away and is it bad to drive a car in that condition?

  • Question about rotors and brake calipers?

    New Year’s Eve I was in an accident. I hit a tree that was blown over into the road. Not only did I hit the tree, but I ramped it and the tree was under the vehicle.

    New Year’s Eve I was in an accident. I hit a tree that was blown over into the road. Not only did I hit the tree, but I ramped it and the tree was under the vehicle. The truck needed rotors, but the breaks were still functioning properly. After hitting the tree, the break caliper is leaking and the ABS light on the dash is on. The repair shop says that the rotors caused the caliper to leak and therefore they are not fixing the breaking issue. They’ve already contacted my insurance company and the insurance company just told me that they will not pay for that. His exact words were “the rotors blew up the piston in the caliper so we will not be fixing the brake issue”. I’m just confused because I literally had brakes up until that point and the ABS light was not on. What can I do about this? I do not know a whole lot about vehicles and don’t want a mechanic taking advantage of me.

    I have a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis and had the engine overheat recently. Checked the coolant and the reservoir was empty. Filled it up and gave it a few days and when I checked again it was getting low. I watched for leaks and have found one area where it looks like it’s leaking on the engine, however, I don’t know engine parts well. I have a photo showing the area circled in black to the right of the oil cap near the orange piece. If anybody can give me an idea of what I might be dealing with it would be appreciated. https://m.imgur.com/gallery/ymaqToY

    I have a 93 Camry where the check engine light has been on for a long time, the code was "EGR system", so I don't know exactly what to fix. Someone who does emissions recommended I replace the vacuum modulator, which made it go from gross polluter on the first test, to just barely failing on the second test (NOx still too high). In fact, it passed at 25MPH but failed at 15 MPH. The tech used a vacuum pump to make sure that the EGR valve was working and not clogged. I'm thinking of getting some EGR cleaner online and spraying it in there. There's also a breather hose that is slightly cracked that I will replace. Are there any other minor things that could make a difference?

At first I thought I put it in the wrong gear (like 1st or 2nd - it has 4 wheel drive); but then it stopped moving forward. I got out to direct traffic to go around me and noticed liquid pouring out of it in the front of the car - neon green and brown. Any ideas of what happened to it? It's at the garage now, but I'm curious. Let me know what you think.

  • Is there a car out there that is very easy to maintain? (read details)?

    Best answer: Yes. They are called electric cars. There is no oil to change, no filters to replace, no sensors that go bad, no sparkplugs to replace, and no transmission fluid to flush out and replace. And like most modern cars they tell you if there is a low tire.

    Examples:
    Nissan Leaf
    Chevrolet Bolt
    Tesla Model 3
