Is there a database online for the number of shop hours a car repair should take? by Frank S[_2_]
I was told that there is a manual auto repair shops look up to find the number of shop hours they charge for a job. To be fair, I'm told they all charge that many hours even if it doesn't take that many hours. For example if three jobs are done, and even if they associate with each other, they...

Kumho tires by [email protected]
I bought new about eight years ago for my 1983 Dodge B250 van. I had the van in storage for almost two years. Last week when I drove the van I heard a humming noise. I only drove the van about 2,240 miles since I had the new tires. Would the age of the tires cause the humming noise?

Solved, valve stem seal by Ivan Vegvary[_2_]
My cylinder head must have been remanufactured with fatter valve guides. The guides are 0.01 fatter than the inside diameter of the seals. Having made the measurements the wonderful techs at Fel-pro specified a set that will be a correct fit on the stem but 0.005 too large on the guide. A stop of...

Where to get car rear-deck speakers (haven't bought speakers in decades) by harry newton
I haven't worked on speakers in decades. <http://wetakepic.com/images/2017/12/04/speakers1.jpg> How do we debug a scratchy sound? We can isolate it with the balance to a single speaker. But is it the speaker? Or something else? If it's the speaker, where is a good place (other than the dealer)...

2.5 ton jack and a 6,900 lb truck by Michael[_23_]
I know that a 2.5 ton jack does not actually equal 6900 lbs, but since it's raising only one end, I'm wondering if it is safe to use it for a vehicle this size. Thanks Mike

Oil by The Real Bev[_5_]
I grew up on 10-30 or 20-40. This is SoCal. No freezing, lots of heat. Synth oil is nice, but expensive. The concept of 0-20 oil, although the manufacturer suggests/demands it, is just alien. We never freeze, we just have to worry about the oil thinning out when the ambient is over...

brake pedal squeal by [email protected]
'07 Cobalt LS, 60K miles. Recently developed a 'rubber' squeal/squeak (as opposed to a 'metallic' one) when the brake pedal is depressed. Sound comes from under the dash. One URL says to replace the brake fluid. (Doesn't say why.) Other threads talk about possibly a leaking master cylinder. ...
