                        Bird poop is not really poop. It is a mixture of bird urine and bird poop. The 2 of these get mixed together before they are dropped out of the birds' multipurpose chute, their cloaca. It is bird urine component of poo-pee that is acid, not the poop component. And the reason it is acid is not because they need more acid to digest food as result of not chewing it so well. This may be so, but it is not why their poo-pee is acid. Dogs have more hydrochloric acid in their stomach than humans, for that very reason – because it helps digest meat, which they don't chew awfully well, yet their poop is not as acid as bird poop. Bird urine and bird poo-pee is acid because their kidneys leave out a metabolic step that our kidneys, and dog kidneys, perform.. When their kidneys are finished metabolizing the chemicals left over after protein digestion, they stop once they have converted the nitrogen in the protein to uric acid. Humans and dogs go one step further, and we convert the uric acid that our kidneys produce into urea, which is less acid than uric acid.

                            I still remember the old 1997 Toyota Corolla DX that we had as our only family car. Each day, upon first startup, it would sound like a forking tractor. After the short drive to school, it was nearly silent at idle. A warm engine is a lot happier than a cold one. Or an overheated one, for that matter. Just remember that. Let your engine warm up for at least a minimum of 1 minute, completely still, before heading off to work or school.

                                Reving to high RPM only applies to manual transmissions. Automatics simply shift to the next gear automatically, lol.

                                              I heard the first 5k miles is the break in period and not to redline until then

                                                    There was a saying, "back in the day". You break em in fast, they run fast. You baby 'em, they last a bit longer but run a whole lot slower. Not saying we redlined 'em with ten miles on the engine but after a few hundred miles started twisting the engine to the redline loosened 'em up so they reached the redline quicker. Always worked for rebuilts and I never had blow by or oil consumption from improperly seated rings and bearings.

                                                        The problem with listening to your advice Scotty may end up driving to an unfamiliar town to satisfy the break in instead of driving straight home and if the wrong neighborhood, you may get mugged. They could steal your new car, part it out and then you are back to square one.

                                                        Last thing you didn't mention? Don't pour any acid on the paint. Also no open bleach bottles on the passenger seat.

But it's touching the top of my undercarriage, which is this big metal plate. Will my car overheat and explode if I don't do something?

                                                                      • machinist1337

                                                                        Are you joking or not I cannot tell.... If not joking then no your car wont blow up. Vibration may wear material away from the as you say "chinese aluminized steel"? And put a hole in you pipe which could cause alot of issues one including breathing in carbon monoxide. Or starting a fire under your car.
