What happens if your car is not registered... and what if you've been driving it around?
Nothing, as long as you don't get stopped and you have no accidents. If you do get stopped or have an accident, then you will be in trouble. The vehicle may get taken off the road, or you may have to deal with insurance problems.
The vehicle must be registered in order to be driven on public roadways.
The driver will get arrested and the car will be cruched!!
If you do not, your registration will be suspended, and your driver license could be suspended as well.When transferring the vehicle's title certificate to a new owner, you must fill out the appropriate odometer and damage disclosure statements, and sign your name at "Seller's Signature."
if u drive on the road yes.

Severe Overheating -- 40 to 80 Degrees Over This is head-gasket-blowing territory, especially if your vehicle's engine has aluminum heads.Sustained at this level, the loss of oil viscosity will eat the bearings and cause the engine to seize, and the heat will cause the heads to warp and probably...

Purchasing a car and not insuring it is not illegal. However, driving an automobile on the road while ininsured is illegal. If the vehicle simply sits in a garage, there is no problem. The only risk there is if the vehicle is damaged or stolen while not being driven, insurance obviously will not ...
You'll damage (probably seriously) the engine and related components such as the transmission and drive-shaft - how bad will depend on how "off" the timing is.
It depends on local legislation, your previous record etc. It most jurisdictions it would be unlikely if it is a first offence.
This just means they have not found it yet. They can pick it up and, they can take you to court and you will have to pay the amount owed plus court fees and fines for hiding the vehicle. If that's the case.
YES (with the owner's permission)

So when you are driving in 2nd gear, you are using high amount of torque and while driving if you are increasing your speed, you are putting heavy load on your engine which will consume high amount fuel, produces vibration in the engine and ultimately reduces the engine life.
In an extremely cold environment, you might get away for a while without anything in the radiator, although your water pump seals will wear out from no lubricant (the antifreeze/coolant is the lubricant).As the engine overheats, the tight clearances will be reduced from the expanding parts.
While a car provides some protection from lightning, as the metal frame directs lightning currents to the ground, vehicles can still be damaged by a strike.Lightning damage to a vehicle includes pitting, arcing and burning along with electrical system issues, the institute said.

If you are driving a car that is overheating but still has coolant, as in the case of having a faulty thermostat, the high temperatures can cause the antifreeze to boil, expand, and cause intense pressure within the radiator hoses.
Your 1993 mercury sable would not shut off today when you turned it off and removed the key the ring is missing around where the key goes you just bought the car and it's been shutting off fine till t?
My 1993 Sable ignition swith was very sloppy too. I would suggest you're going to have to replace the switch. Any shop manual will have the instructions for this. Either buy one, or use your local library's copy for free.
Yes, HOWEVER, you will need required documents in order to register the vehicle if your name is not on the title.Bring in the title documents, proof of insurance, signature form (TR-212a), and payment, and we will register the vehicle without the owner in the office.

If your mechanic installed a new thermostat in your car and it did not work so your car overheated and cracked your cylinder head is it his fault and if so how can you prove it?
If the thermostat failed it is not the fault of the mechanic, he didn't build the thermostat he just installed it. If it failed because of improper installation that is another story. But you are also at fault,maybe more so than the mechanic ever hear of a temperature gauge. it doesn't just get t...

Cindy Lynn, what is a "normal" repo? Whats "normal" about someone wanting to drive a car and NOT pay for it? Can a warrant be placed? In a few states, yes.

i'd say both you not that much but who wrecked it is the one to put the blame onThe insurance is for the car regardless of who is driving. It will be the first to pay.

I have posted a link for you with the California requirements for registering a vehicle you have purchased. There are some exceptions to the law, listed on the website.
Therefore, as long as you have Car Insurance, your vehicle will most likely be covered if it is involved in an accident while someone else is driving.Likewise, if the accident was determined to be the fault of the other driver, their insurance will be held responsible for damages.
If you fail your driver's license test three times in California, you have to begin the application process all over again.You can then take the written test a second time for your learner's permit, which will give you another three chances to pass the driving test.
If your car has been totaled but you bought it back and had it repaired is it true that it can never be totaled again?
It can be totaled again but payout will be much less, typically 50% of the value of a comparabe clean-titled car plus credit for any upgrades you've done and can prove with receipts (keyless entry, new brakes, new alternator). It's subjective so make sure you know the value of your car with a cle...
You have to get the antitheft system in your 95 firebird fixed and you've been told cars like this are only going to give you trouble does this car always have problems with it or is it worth keeping?

Yes it is illegal. It is stealing and you can be arrested.
It can be several things. A clogged radiator. Not enough coolant in the radiator. Using water rather than coolant. A blown head gasket. A cracked head. Running against some kind of resistance, such as an engaged emergency brake, a stuck brake caliper, etc. Other things.
If a timing belt breaks while driving in an interference engine, the camshaft stops turning leaving some of the engine valves in the open position.This may result in a heavy damage to the engine with broken or bent valves, damaged pistons and, possibly, destroyed cylinder head and block.

WTH kind of question is this?? Of course it is recommended!!!
You are lucky. If you cannot make the payments contact the lender and try and work something out. If not voluntarily turn the car in yourself. You will save yourself the repossession fees.
How do you get a car back if you finance the car the other person is a named driver on the car and drives around in it?
This could be ugly.If you are the listed owner on the registration you could:If the other persons name is on the registration then you will have to go through a legal repossession probably involving a lawsuit.
Nothing happens. It is not up to the postal service to verify the occupants of an address. The postal service delivers to an address and not a person.
