Post your best.
this makes me want to buy a laguna and put nescafe stickers on it
Why would anyone cover their car in stickers to go on a tour? Anyone doing actual touring would want to stay low profile
How much harder is it to drive in the UK if you've only driven in the US before?
>>20027717 >but you do sometimes forget when driving on autopilot and try to change gear with the wrong hand.
I did that all of once and grabbed the door handle. It never happened again
the test is seperate for manual and auto (though manual license lets you drive an auto too).
there are some seriously fucking narrow roads here that fit 2 cars (which are going to be doing 30mph) with 5 inches on either side, so coming from driving in the US, it will probably be a bit of a culture shock. petrol is more expensive, emissions tax, insurance, yearly MOTs, etc. cars are some of the cheapest in the world here though so there's that.
If you are out in the countryside you'll encounter a lot of minor roads that are a single car wide but have speed limits of up to 60mph. In such a case your speed should be governed by visibility, slowing down substantially for corners or hill crests where you can't see oncoming traffic.

everyone says that my car has uprated brakes for the speeds it can achieve but i still feel like they are lacking.
how bad of an idea is it to upgrade to pic related, with better pads, lines and fluid?
ty that matches with what i read before, realoem just listed them under abs and not abs thats what got me thinking.

i recently bough a battery charger for my car that is in winter storage but i only have a socket a few feet away from the garage. would it be dangerous to run an extension cable to the garage and leave it plugged in? or would it be better to only plug the charger in for half an houer a day when im around? thanks for the help
You'd have to sell it to an idiot.
Why don't you just plug it in for a day or two (continuous) once a month? If the charger says it's full, no need to keep it plugged in. Another option is to remove the battery from the car and have the whole setup in your basement.
Yet another option is to just remove the negative battery cable so the car isn't connected to the battery. If your battery is in good condition, you might need to throw the charger on it once during the entire winter.
thanks, i thought i had to leave it on there because most chargers have a conservation mode.
I want a car that has an insane amount of body roll. Would are some cheap, easy to find sedans that will offer me this?
how is that even physically possible
Springs and bumpstops.
A 70's land yacht.
the formula for body roll is atan(2 x suspension travel/track width), keeping in mind that you also count the tire deformation as suspension travel.
So the ingreadients for body roll is a narrow car, with plenty of suspension travel and soft springing, and preferably a lot of tire sidewall. So it's no surprise old french cars are known for it.
I've never had any problems starting my jeep, but its been super cold (-22f) and now the engine is making some weird electric noise and not turning over
ive been told its the starter solenoid or the alternator, but I really need to learn basic auto maintenance. Anyways I got it started by popping the clutch and drove it around for a bit.
After an hour of driving it was starting and stopping on its own, even after being left for a while. When I got home its back doing the same thing, making that weird electrical sound.
Any idea on whats likely broken, since I will obviously have my noob ass raped if I take it to the stealer-ship off warranty
seriously guys five years ago you told me to buy this thing in a thread and I havent bothered you since
not to feel entitled but can I at least get a little help
Your battery is getting old
The battery is bad you goddamn imbecile.
Sup /o/, are you fine folks planning on doing any car-related Black Friday shopping this year? I'm on the lookout for some new summer wheels, myself.
Is a PC steering wheel car related?
Sure, why not. Speaking of, I saw a pretty good deal on Newegg yesterday for the Logitech G29 wheel/pedal set, only 200 bucks.
I'm waiting to see if the Thrustmaster TMX Pro gets any cheaper. Also I have a few headphones I'm interested in, maybe I'll come across a really good deal on one of those.
How come we don't have gas station attendants in the U.S., if they are normal in Europe, Japan, China, Colombia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, Russia, SEA, basically everywhere else in the world? (though I don't know if they have them in Turkey)
Also apparently in other countries you pay after you receive the fuel, whereas in the U.S. you must always pay first for the gas unless it is a very old station.
here in the Philippines, a gas attendant will also wash the front and back windshield, check your engine oil/coolant levels, tire pressure upon request for free. Then will say "thank you sir/ma'am" as you ride off, most of the time.
Every time, fuck
>>20025392 >no longer arrest people of color for minor crimes
Even SF has to cancel that programs after upstanding youths would skateboard down a block busting every car window for kicks.
Let's not beat around the bush
no matter how shitty the economy is, no one wants to work for 3 dollars an hour and no insurance at some soulless corporate franchise, get shot in the face for 2.34 worth of gas on an EBT card, and then still somehow having your family get sued by the head office of your employer
imagine being this naive
>car in front of you keeps touching the brakes without any reason
>does sudden turns without indicating
Once had a friend talk to me about how fast his truck was and how it "went faster than BMWs on the highway" and was being condescending about it. I asked him if he could still manage that when he has to turn. dumbass
>>20028049 >is scared of someone driving an altima
>>20028072 >went faster than BMWs on the highway
i've driven a prius that went faster than a ferrari cruising at 60
Chinks do that in Camada all the time. Its because they drive automatics with two feet
Yeah, I know. He doesn't comprehend how cars work
Post fucked up problems you've encountered or odd systems or designs that gasoline huffing engineers made.

Sensor is in the bottom of the oil pan, has power, ground and signal from the ECM. Mind you not a reference voltage. A 2 way signal...
The oil level sensor works by sending a signal from the ecm to sensor which converts it to a ultrasonic wave which is directed up through the oil and reflects of the boundary bbetween the oil and air. The wave is received back into the sensor and the time interval between the sent and received signal is calculated into a value for the oil level for the ECM. Which is linked to the dash control module and then to the infotainment module.
But wait! There's more! In order for the amount to be calculated and displayed after a low warning level the hood must be opened and closed 3 times. If the hood latch switch is malfunctioning the oil level will never be displayed and fit warning will always remain on the infotainment.
These are things that only techs would have reason to bitch about.
>>20027019 >spring breaks >REEEEEEEEEEE
That same thing happened to my Volvo about a month ago during the hurricanes on the East coast.
Fucking drain tube popped out of place and flooded the interior of the car. Not a lot of watee gets into the sunroof gutter normally, but 4 solid days of absolute deluge...
>>20026999 >engine mounts built into the valve cover
This triggers me way more than the front bumper air filter.
And I'm an engineer.
That's what I'm saying. Wouldn't that section around the axle give the effect of a very progressive spring?
ALL AROUND ME ARE FAMILIAR FACES
WORN OUT PLACES
The whole market is crashing.
Not just nissian We all knew this was going coming. 10 year bull transforms into a 10 year bear Market. Tech companies are getting hit the hardest
LMAO @ UR LYFES RIGHT NOW
