  • Car accidentally put into neutral while driving at 50 MPH?

    My dumbass friend was going to switch the radio station while I was driving and his arm hit the shifter upwards into neutral and my RPM's went up to 5 out of 8. He then quickly put it back into drive. Is this horrible for my transmission or is it nothing to worry about?

  • Can someone tell me why my car squeals?

  • How to change gears when driving in snow? (2007 Camry-automatic)?

    I'm driving about 45 min to work in a few hours and was wondering what the best tips are for driving in snow.

    I'm driving about 45 min to work in a few hours and was wondering what the best tips are for driving in snow. I'm sure the highways will be plowed but I was wondering how to properly shift gears for roads that are covered in snow. From what I read online, I should progressively shift down when coming to a stop/making turns, shift to third gear when climbing/descending. But when driving at a constant speed, at what MPH range should I drive in 3rd, 2nd, or 1st gear?

Been in a couple tiny accidents and has some dents but it needs a new alternator, Has a cracked radiator and is leaking coolant and engine is leaking oil. Not sure from where but of course thinking the worst with this piece of trash, believe it’s from the rear main seal. Unless someone wants to spend tons on a pile of garbage i don’t think it’s moving. What are my options for this thing?

  • Could this have caused engine damage?

    Best answer: That will happen on a tight corner if your brake fluid level is low too. There can be more than one problem at the same time.

    so long story short, some guy hit my beater car at night fairly hard. the drivers side fender, both doors, and the rear fender and rear bumper all have damage on them. i dont know much about cars so i just took it to a mechanic and he just straightened the fender a bit and ziptied the bumper in. the guy that hit my car just drove off and since i only have liability insurance they cant do anything about it. the car is a 1997 toyota corolla. so im not gonna spend alot to fix it. i just told the mechanic to check it out and see if i can still drive it. he told me i can. and of course its not worth rebuilding a 20+ year old car that already has rust on it. also im not sure but the front wheel may have taken some damage because the hubcap fell off. im still worried it if could have suspension damage? the car still drives fairly straight. maybe pulls a tiny bit left if i just let the steering wheel go. im really cheap and i dont have much money. is it ok if i drive it like that?

    I called a friend to jump start my car at home. He brought a device that charges the battery whole being plugged into a power source. It worked and my car was back to running again. We let it charge for a couple minutes but we had to leave so we did. When i returned about 5 hours later, my battery was completely dead (lights don't turn on nor do headlights, radio don't turn on, windows don't work, can only manually unlock doors one by one). I called my friend again the next day to jump start it again, but as we let the battery charge for a couple minutes, battery acid began to leak from the top caps. A few days later I told bother the situation and he thought it was the altinator but whenever we plug in jump start cables, the battery leaks acid which would mean the battery is clearly receiving charge. So we went ahead and tried to go through with jump starting car , despite the battery acid leaking. It worked, but my at first the car wouldn't start on when I tried driving. Now, the car starts on but I need to jump start it Everytime I turn off my car. Can someone please guide me into what may be the problem with my car? Thank you in advance.

    Best answer: It can be a couple reasons.
    1)If the bulb is a halogen bulb and you touched it with your fingers as you installed it. High power Halogen bulbs such as in headlights are not supposed to be touched by skin as body oils somehow affect the glass. Most halogen bulbs tell you not to handle them directly as you install them as it will shorten their life. When changing them use a tissue or clean cloth or cotton gloves to handle the bulb and install it.
    2) Problem with manufacture. You can get a bulb that blows because something went wrong during manufacture. Maybe there was a thin part of the filament that could not handle the power for the full expected life. Maybe the glass bulb was faulty and air got inside the bulb allowing the filament to burn up at a weak point. Only the other day I bought 2 light bulbs to replace a blown bulb in my lounge room. The second time I turned the light on the new bulb blew so obviously there was a fault with the manufacturing of it.

    Okay so I have a 2003 Infiniti G35 I was driving tonight and with ice being on the road i was trying to drive really slow. While I was driving my car was making a horribly loud noise and Im not sure what is was. ( I was on the way to get it checked) When I drove up a hill I stopped at a stop sign and when i tried to accelerate my gas pedal was on the floor and still would not move. My car quickly started rolling backwards down the hill and i wrecked my car into a stop sign. I turned my engine off now my car will not turn over, I tried jump offs & it sounds like the engine is trying to turn over but will not crank. My car is stuck in a bad neighboorhood and I really need help. Any advice would be great.
