Reddit:    Is black soot build up on tailpipes normal?
13 Oct 2018 | 2:02 am
Hey guys. I have black coating of soot on my tail pipes which has accumulated over a few months. The soot has always appeared on the exhaust since owning the car from new. I understand black smoke coming from the exhaust can mean faulty fuel/ air ratios but I took the car to my local Honda garage and they couldn't find any fault. So I'm wondering if black soot on the tail pipes is a normal occurrence? Is it simply because my car runs rich? Any help would be appreciated, cheers! submitted by...


Blog:    Quick Take: 2019 Toyota Corolla XSE Hatchback
13 Oct 2018 | 2:00 am
MALIBU, California — “Which Corolla are you driving?” fellow senior editor Nelson Ireson asked. “The XSE hatch,” I said. “Oh, the good one,” he replied. I guess my confusion must have been reflected in my face, because his own expression changed to the exasperated Yet-again-I-must-explain-myself-to-the-humans look that I have come to know so well. “I didn’t say it was good,” he explained. “I said it was the good one.” After a couple of days of intensive driving, I will, yet again, beg to differ with Ireson; I think the 2019 Toyota Corolla XSE Hatchback we had in for some evaluation is good, full stop. To be...

Blog:    Ford F-150 Brake Pedals Go to the Floors: Lawsuit
13 Oct 2018 | 1:48 am
Ford F-150 brake pedals that go to the floors have caused a lawsuit that alleges brake fluid leaks from the master cylinders into the brake boosters due to faulty seals. The Ford F-150 class-action lawsuit was filed on behalf of all consumers who purchased or leased in California model year 2013-2018 Ford F-150 trucks. Plaintiff Roy Naasz purchased a 2015 Ford F-150 after leasing it as a new vehicle for a two-year period beginning in June 2015. Naasz says the brakes failed in September 2018 when the F-150 had about 57,000 miles on it as the pedal went to the floor. In...

Reddit:    Does anyone know what Waymos actual residential eligibility fence is?
13 Oct 2018 | 1:15 am
On the early rider apply page it says Chandler, Tempe, Gilbert, Mesa. Is it anywhere in those places? The reason I am asking is because I have no family or attachments to any place and I am trying to decide a reasonably priced place to live. And I have no car and work online. So I am really interested in at least trying to take advantage of Waymo. At this point it seems like I may be waiting well into next year if I'm not really lucky. But there is zero chance if I don't live in the right...

Reddit:    Did my first &big& project on my mini cooper today!
13 Oct 2018 | 12:31 am
tl;dr- changed thermostat housing and water pipe on my mini Cooper and it sucked. Hello all, today I changed the thermostat housing and water pipe (which runs from the housing to the water pump) and it only took 6.5 hours! Many cuts and tears went through those hours to bring the car back to one piece and I couldn't have hated it more. Reason for changing the parts was due to complete coolant leak which I found under the connection of the housing and the pipe. Another fun time on this job included unscrewing the idle air control valve...


Reddit:    Idle rpms adjust?
13 Oct 2018 | 12:18 am
So my car has this special little thing where it gets low oil (at least the light comes on) when the engine idles after it warms up. This goes away when I rev it up to about 1500 rpm. I’ve heard from people with older cars that there’s a way you can adjust the timing or something in order to ‘raise the idle’ or the rpms at which the car will idle at. Are there any videos/tutorials explaining how to do this on the internet anywhere? Can you even do this on newer cars? I have a 2001 Ford zx2...

Bajaj Auto has launched the Pulsar 125 in Poland at a price of around Rs. 1.6 lakhs. The smallest Pulsar to be made to date will replace the ageing Pulsar 135 LS.
