How many of you carry a 2nd copy of your car keys and fob, when you're in town? When you go out of town? Before I had a fob, I carried a second car key for 10 or 20 years, but I stopped a while ago. I have a spare housekey and carkey buried in my yard somewhere, but I've never trusted magnetic...

Junk/salvage question by Michael[_23_]
The used car dealer tells me that the 4 junk/salvage notes in the car's records are because it went through an insurance auction. Could this be the case, or should I run from this deal as fast as possible? Thanks, Mike

###TIMING BELT CONSPIRACY THEORY### by [email protected]
That's funny but true.My question is if there is damage to the engine would there be any leakage or signs of oil residue? And if none is present could the chances of engine valve damage be diminished?
