If someone puts a coolant in your car and says it should work for green or pink coolant is he correct or will it cause harm to the cooling system?
you need to read the product you are putting in car.Some brands mix with each other some don't......

If you started the engine then also change the filter.A:I would also take it to a service shop asap. This all depends on h...

Is it fair for a mechanic to charge you for keeping your car at the lott even if he didnt say anything about it at first?
no it's not fair, just think about his space an the ability to store cars on his property. it's not fair for you to expect him to fix your car an then leave him hangin for the money.
Not very long because when sugar is poured into a petrol or gas tank it sits at the bottom of the tank and makes the engine run really badly and costs a lot to fix
Should you put your subs into your car by yourself or have someone do it for you like a store or something?

Yes. R12 and R134a are essentially the same thing. The reason for a new type being produced was that the company owning the rights to the mix lost its patent. Thus they needed a new one but could not use the same name or exact same mix. So they changed very little about it and came out with R134a...

If someone is in a car accident and gets killed was that just an accident or was it your sons time to go home to God?
It depens entirely on how you choose to look at it. If you do indeed believe in God and that he controls these sort of things then I would say there is no such thing as an accident...that it was infact intentional on God's part to call him up. Another way to look at it is that the world is a host...

In Pennsylvania your husband gives you a car in his name can he take it away from you and or your keys if he has his own car to drive?
Yes. In PA, there is no law that protects you from gifts that are owned in other people's names. According to the law, he did not "give" you the gather, but rather allowed you to drive a car that he owns. The fact that he already has a car to drive has no bearing on this situation.
The water drops to the bottom of the tank immediately, so you may drive a mile or so before you have trouble. This would also depend on how much water was poured in.If you fill your tank with ethanol, you can run the car on around a 80% mix of alcohol and 20% water. It isn't going to give you goo...

The previous owners of your car appear to have put the wrong size tire on is there a way to tell if the speedometer is calibrated correctly to these tires or if its calibrated to stock?
Unlikely there has been any change made to calibration. That said, stock speedo is likely to show faster than actual true road speed. e.g. Speedo 30mph, actual 28mph.For a rough guide have a friend pace you with their car at agreed speeds or try streets with speed advisor displays.As to what tyre...

Can a mechanic put a lien on a car that you told him he could use if he fixed it and he did use it for over 30days and i asked him for it back when my other car broke down and now he said he is going?
Yes he can. You can fight it if you have all you say in writing. All he needs is the bill and the title with the lien.If you have proof that he used the car in lieu of the cost to fix it, you can get your car back. Sorry I couldn't do any better for you.
no not that i know, my dad had bad credit so he put it in my grandmas name
It is not a very god idea if that is what the manufacture requires, conventional will leave sludge and gunk in the engine.
it depends on where u go to get it done and how long the mechanic shop says it takes most small town shops charge 70 bucks an hour for labor, but the Freon is actually cheap and easy to do yourself. there is a valve that looks like a tire core under the hood and u just connect the can to this and...

Does the coolant go in the radiator cap Isuzu trooper or in the odd shaped bottle to the right of it. how does that system work?
If it is marked coolant the funny bottle gets the coolant.The pressure is released by the radiator cap by bleeding excess coolant into the bottle.As the engine cools the reverse happens but the valve works at much lower pressure (vacuum) going back into the system.It also works this way to keep i...
03 navigator air suspension not working took it to a shop they told you one air bag is blown will that cause the entire system not to work?
I'm not sure how the systems work, but if it is sort of similar to brakes, there is a one master control (air compressor) that pumps directly into all the air bags, and a release mechanism to let air out again. If one bag is blown, ALL the air would escape through that hole, meaning no other bags...
If you added more gas and a additive to gas that had water in it will it run itself out or should you drain it?

You should never give your social security number to anyone, reguardless of their intentions. If they misplace that number, the damage can be irreperable.
