Air conditioner high pressure tube leak by Jack Myers
Air conditioning season is not off to a good start this year. The high pressure line that is routed under the battery developed a pinhole leak. The tube showed signs of corrosion, probably caused by battery acid. I attempted a repair by cutting out a few inches of metal tubing and bridging across...

Car radio that will mix sound inputs and play them at the same time? by micky
Is there a car radio that will mix sound inputs and play them at the same time? AFAICT, both the Mazda 2 that I had and the current Honda Jazz/Fit and maybe any other car I've driven lately only allowed one input to the "radio" at a time. So if I wanted to play the music on my Flashdrive, I...

Rubbing the tire on the road, is it really mathematically simple? by micky

UPDATE: Today I mounted & static balanced my 30th tire in about five years, where each time I do this easy job, I learn new tricks to make it even easier. For example, the "drop center" trick that Clare taught me was, by far, the most critical trick of all. And, this time, I learned that it's a...

Unable to Tighten GM Side Mount Battery Terminal by KC[_2_]
The car is a 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass with the 3.4L DOHC engine. The negative battery cable terminal will not get very tight when attached to the battery. I can snug it up to where it just begins to get tight, but that is as much as I can get out of it. It feels as though there is not enough depth...
