      Scotty Kilmer I own a 5th generation Camaro v6 and Changed the rear wheels to size 55 instead of 50 and the front to size 45 instead of 50. Would that do any damage to the Vehicle's transmission or anything?

      Scotty I have a 2005 Ford Focus with "lifetime" air filter and about 112,000 miles. It runs and drives great. Should I even think about replacing the air filter? Or just assume it is doing its job. Thanks for your time!

    Hey Scotty, You forgot one important safety warning about jumper cables. Before hooking up both positive and negative cables to the good car, make sure the clamps are not touching on the other end! Else you will short-circuit your battery and possible explosion! That's why all jumper cable instructions say to hook up positive on both ends first, then negatives. This make short-circuit impossible. I know most people don't read instructions! Thanks for the entertaining videos!

      Checking the alternativ is simple - just see if the voltage on the battery rises to about 14V and drops when motor turned off.

            With the price of gas being so high, my habit to roll my total up to a certain kind of number isn't a problem because the maximum extra nine cents worth of gas is barely a sip. I don't ever try and cram say $20 in there. Just roll the digits a certain way that lets me notice if my visa charge gets tampered with later.

                            Check your owner's manual. If you don't have it, check with a reputable auto parts store.

                            I agree 100% with you. I never realized about overtopping the fuel. Plus, I feel that these so-called quick oil places ruin one's car. They're always trying to push or sell these additives for your engine. One doesn't even know if they put the proper grade oil. You don't see the cans anymore.

                                  You actually need to connect your jumper cables to the car that won't start first, not the way you said for the very reason you pointed out. There is much less chance of a spark under the hood of the dead car if you connect to the dead battery first. If you do happen to end up with a spark it will be when you connect the cables under the hood of the car that is less likely to have trapped hydrogen gas under the hood that was released by a discharging battery.

                                    When I was probably 13 I blew up a lawn mower battery when I connected the cable and it made a spark .

                                          Filling ypur gas tank to a specific amount ISN'T
                                          OCD actually.
                                          By setting a specified amount that you know instantly on your credit card statement if it was a false transaction.

                                          I knew a family owned business who would short oil burner fuel during deliveries to their customers so they coukd deposit the balance in their personal homes all winter.

                                            I live in a place where the temperature is about 55 c in summer that's why I use heavier oil which is normally 20-50 or 40

                                              3bou Oo that’ll raise oil pressure due to smaller oil galleys in today’s mordern engines if it’s that hot during the summer months I would suggest using whatever your car states in full synthetic oil.

                                                Although I agree that you should not over-inflate your tires, something even worse is under-inflated tires. This is especially true of heavy vehicles in hot weather. Under-inflated tires are far more likely to lead to a sudden tire failure, because they rapidly build up excessive heat. Bottom line check tire pressures regularly. A lot of tire stores will check your pressures and adjust them for free.

                                                                        My 2009 Toyota Rav4 has done 200000kms and is always low on oil after using the right oil and not a heavier type....My mechanic has recommended to go a little heavier so it doesnt use as much.....Could It be the oil consumption is from something else ?
