    I bought a 05 Toyota 4runner with 200,000 miles not having any problems. When I checked my transmission fluid for the first time it was it was dark brown. 50k miles later I decided to change the fluid for good measure. Online I found post stating that this is an indication that my transmission fluid is breaking down / needs to be replaced. I Found A really good post about flushing out all the fluid in my car. I didn't use the Toyota brand SW fluid but the stuff I used said it was compatible with Toyota SW. It took about 3 gallons of fluid to flush it out good and now my transmission fluid is clean and redish pink, I told my dad what I had done and he did not approve. He believes you should never change the transmission fluid.

  • What causes a bilateral bulging out on the tread portion of a tire.?

    What causes a bilateral bulging out on the tread portion of a tire.?

    If you can see from the picture, the outer portions of the tread have bulged out, causing appearance of a valley on inner portion of tread, see drawing which shows what i mean. The deformity is present all around the circumference & only on tread/not side wall.Tire is a used Lexani LX Thirty 305/40 R22 PerformanceTire but is now the 2nd one which has developed same issue. Got both used tires from same place, they mounted and inflated, and pretty sure the 1st one was the same brand and batch. It's an 02 Tahoe and the placement of tire is on front driver side (both times). wondering if it's just defective tires or could it be caused by a bad mounting job or issues with my rim. Overinflation sounds like a good culprit from other answers. I'll test tire pressure and update. I do plan on getting new tires on all 4 but will fix alignment issues 1st, replace pitman & idler arms(other 3 tires are fine, never bulged, just typical wear u get on sides when its time for an alignment ) so will replace this tire before then and make sure I use different brand but if same issue develops, I'm really gonna be puzzled. Hopefully just bad luck/plus overinflation. It's not so much that inner tread is wearing as much as it is that both tires have developed same unusual bulging that has grown out and deformed the tire. The bulging on 1st tire was more pronounced & developed within 2 days during long trip across state. 2nd tire developed same deformity within 2 months in normal commute conditions.

    So my car was left with the indoor light on all night and battery got drained. car wouldnt start. the car was in my garage, and it was morning and late to work. I had no jumper cables or my neighbors. A friend told me to remove the dead battery, use another battery from my other old pickup truck (good battery) and connect it to my work car. start the engine (work car) and when the engine is running, remove the connected battery (pickup truck battery) and put back the original drained battery (while the engine is running) so that it can be charged and now I can drive my work car... ive heard this can damage your alternator etc is it true or just someone was making stuff up? from what I know, the battery is just there to start the engine...and power 12V electronics or lights when the engine is off. and once the engine starts, the alternator feeds the car with the necessary voltages 12V to the ECU and other electronic devices... Can this procedure be done? Ive seen technicians that service backup generators that carry a charged 12V battery so that when they go to a mountain or remote place and they need to start the generator to service it, they connect it that way...

  • Sand is a solid why it sand can be poured?

    Best answer: Sand is lots and lots of little solids (each grain of sand is a solid) So if you put that one grain of sand in a container, it won't pour. It's like saying if you put 100s of balls in a huge container, it will pour if the container is tipped. However it's not a liquid, just lots of little balls. show more
