  • What are the early warning signs that indicates that your car's starter needs to be changed?

    I drive a 2007 Honda Civic coupe. Sometimes when I start my car the starter gives a bit of a slow start. Sometimes it may act as if it is not working but after a few seconds the engine will turn over. Does this mean I have to change my starter?

My door no longer opens from the outside and theres a huge dent and scratches. The guy admitted to being at fault and we did an insurance claim but there was no police report filed and his insurance wants my insurance info. I now don't know what to do because I don't want my insurance to go up because we weren't at fault.

  • Do I have to change my oil after 3,000 miles?

    They say you should change your oil every 3,000 miles or every 3 months but I drove over 3,000 miles in just over a month. Can I go any further or should I continue to keep getting my oil changed every 3,000 miles?

  • Turns (driving)?

    Hi I’m currently in the process of getting my drivers license. My question is, as I’m turning the wheel towards the direction I want to go, as I’m braking do I also accelerate a little as I turn? I heard you should go 15mph as you turn. Thank you.

    I was driving on the freeway and this Mercedes in front of me slammed its brakes and I did too, but I ended up rear ending her vehicle. We exchanged info and we "agreed" that she would take it to her mechanic and I would pay the bill. We drove off and that was that. Two weeks later I get a call from my insurance company stating if I was in an accident and if the car I drive is a Mercedes. I said no, I drive a Toyota. Then he said that Jane Doe was the one that filed the insurance claim with my insurance stating that her Mercedes was hit. I told him I was John doe and my Camry was the one that hit the Mercedes and the insurance he was calling from was my insurance and that Jane Doe had a different insurance company. Confused, the guy told me that he would get back to me because he didn't understand What was going on, I asked him why she would file an insurance claim under my insurance and putting her vehicle on my insurance and he said he didn't know and would get back to me. I'm really confused myself as to how this could happen in the first place, can someone do something like this or is it illegal? If this information helps, I do remember that she told me that she didn't want to get anyone involved was because she had a ticket on her record or something like that. She told me this when the accident had occurred.

  • Expert car mechanics or tire experts, how come the side of my tires have hairline cracks? I always maintain my recommended psi?

    Best answer: It's called weather/ozone cracking. Usually cosmetic, but they can be very deep. Maintaining PSI will not prevent the cracks from appearing. Can happen on newer tires as well, because cause is not age. Typical reasons are exposure to ozone (from generators or other electrical machinery (can happen if you... show more

    Maintaining PSI will not prevent the cracks from appearing. Can happen on newer tires as well, because cause is not age. Typical reasons are exposure to ozone (from generators or other electrical machinery (can happen if you store your car in a shop garage with electrical machines), sun, high temperatures and crappy, low-cost wheel dressings, sprays or even car wash soaps.

  • Did I put Diesel or Petrol in my Diesel car?

    This will sound a weird one, I have an 06 diesel car now and I cant remember for the life of me if I have put diesel or petrol in it when I filled up yesterday.

I put about 65 quid worth in it (my car estimated I had about 20 miles worth in it before I did). I drove around for about 10-15 miles after I did it over diffferent journeys during the day. I havent noticed anything and my car started today (although I havent driven it as I am too scared). Personally think I am being over cautious just have the fear Any recommendations on how to check or if I had would the car already be wrecked.

  • Hello expert car mechanics, how do i make my CVT transmission on my toyota corolla 2016 last?

    Best answer: It will be fine - they aren't anymore prone to breakdown than any other automatic transmission. Nissan even extended warranty on the Murano to 100k miles. My wife's 04 went well into the 100K with no trans problems and that was on a relatively high power V6. Just drive normally follow the service intervals... show more

    Just drive normally follow the service intervals in the owners manual and it will all be good.

  • Is 135,000 miles a lot for a used car?

    Best answer: For a petrol engine, its a lot.
    But, then again it's German and usually built to a better standard than some engines.
    I'd take a mechanic with you when you go to see it, so they'll know what to look for
