This is the item I bought it to connect with my flat screen tv to vcr and dvd player. I tried directly with the rca to rca from tv to vcr or the dvd player but it doesn't shows any thing on the tv screen. Than I bought this item but it also not showing any thing on the tv.

We're going to New York from Sep 1 to Nov 1. Need a minivan for two months.
Budget has a Dodge Grand Caravan is $3900 for the two months. Just wondering if this price is "normal" or am I looking at completely the wrong thing. Maybe there is another system for a 2 month rental, like a lease or something?

I have a 1998 buick regal and the key will not come out of the ignition right away.  I have to keep the key forward and I wait for about 20 seconds and then I hear a click sound and I can take the key out. Sometimes this click does not happen right away.  I had to wait 5 minutes one time and other times it comes out immediatley.  I have sprayed some graphite in the ignition and this made it worse so I have to blow it out with a can of air.  Maybe it has something to do with the anti theft thing.  Any ideas for remedying this?

I have a 2004 Ford E350 van.  I travel on gravel roads to get home and I am having an issue with filling up at the pump.  I start to fill and at about 1 or 2 dollars it stops.  Then I start it again and it stops a dollar or 2 later again.  This happens until I get a full tank.  I talked with a guy and he said it is because there is dirt or gravel somewhere in the mechanism where you fill.  He asked me right away if I travel on alot of gravel roads.  Another guy said this is not true.  Here is another piece of info.  I bought buick regal about a year ago and it was just fine filling up and now it is doing the same thing as my van.  Stops every couple of dollars.  Is there any reason to believe that the gravel and dirt is contributing to my problem?

can you suggest your approach in buying new car ..

below are scenarios:

purchase time.. in 2 weeks..

priority is price
i got comsumerreports service. they suggest (truecar) only one dealership in 150 mile radius, but they dont have the color/option (rav4 hybrid in blizzard pearl color) we are looking for.

how do you do it?
phone calls?
emails?
i suspect walk-in may not be best option to start off with?

already drove and choice made.. no need to test drive.

how do you bargain? on what basis do you bargain on price?
(assumption is all dealers jack it up high enough so they have room to bargain and still make reasonable profit)

does it help buying in the last week of the month?

will to drive 200 mile radius to get it.. (NJ/MD/DC/PA/DE area)

thanks for any ideas or suggestions.

Hi Experts,

My diesel car engine oil was leaking from bottom which I realized very late. I changed engine oil to shell semi synthetic. After that I asked mechanic to fix oil sump screw properly. I did not change oil filter as it was not available that time. Mechanic said you can always change later and will not be a problem.

After that I was noticing loss of power in all gear shifting. Prior to this oil change car was making sound, vibrations were more. This diesel Grande Punto has 60k miles on it. Engine oil is still leaking drop by drop, car servicing is already due, I am wondering if products like xado or ceratec will help? may be car engine is worned out a bit. This car is 3 year old and was bought brand new.
When car was new for 2 years I did proper servicing but on 3rd year I used shell full synthetic engine oil from outside during servicing.

The car engine never ceased even though oil sump was more than half empty.
I am also planning to change engine oil to Liqui Moly semi/full not decided yet which one.

I am trying to get suggestions before I go to service center.

Do you guys have any experience on below products?

Xado

Ceratec

Thanks in Advance!

Hello,

I am looking for some suggestions about table design in Access. I know this is pretty basic . But I am sort of stuck on the design phase.  I am creating a Vehicle Service /Maintenance Log . I will not only track the vehicle and details but also any service and any other costs, that has been done. So table 1 will be Vehicle Details. Table 2 will be Repair Shop and Dealerships, Table 3 will be Insurance Companies . Table 4 will be expense details.. So the expense detail table is the stumbling block.  I want to log everything like , the monthly insurance costs, individual repairs, like if brake were replaced what was the part number used, if Oil was changed what was the oil type and viscosity used,So do I use a table for all expenses , or use seperate tables , sort of like a sub table of the expense details. Hope this makes sense

Assuming I have a plate as below with a hole in which I install a bearing.
Then I insert a shaft and in top of the shaft a weight. Let’s say is a round weight, can be a sphere or a disk.
Questions:
-      What type of the bearing should I use?
-      From what material should be the bearing made?
-      What size should be the bearing?
The purpose is to have the lowest possible friction using bearing that I can buy from market.
Plate: 30 x 30 cm
Weight: max. 20cm diameter and 1-2Kg

My 2004 Toyota Camry LE recently got some scrapes and cosmetic damage to the rear bumper.

I am now looking for a rear bumper cover that I can purchase and use to cover the rear bumper of my 2004 Toyota Camry LE to hide these scrapes and cosmetic damage.

This rear bumper cover can even be made out of leather (such as a front bumper bra or cover). I just need something to hide this damage.

Please provide me with URL addresses of where I can purchase such products from.

No idea if this site allows car questions so here goes :).

The car is a classic 65 Ford with a 289.
It has dual exhaust and an Edelbrock Performer 289, dual plane manifold and a Holley 4150 carb which were taken off another car.

The jets in the carb were installed for a much larger application and I need to know what size jets should be installed for this kind of application.

My TV is Mitsubishi 60 inch. I don't know how old it is. Its not flat screen, its not plasma either. Its a heavy model before those.

Hi All

Thanks for any guidance you can provide.

I'd like to automate a robocopy job in Windows 7, and have discovered that a the /RH xxxx-xxxx flag can be used to pause the job until an appointed time.  I've tested a script using this and it works like a charm.

But It is unclear to me whether this job is persistent, between restarts, whether it is persistent daily until a restart, or if it is just a one-time script.

I would like to ensure that this job is executed as such every day.  If need be, I'll put it on the scheduler if necessary, but need to know how the /RH works in this respect.

What would you recommend?

Thanks.
