外围体育投注I bought a leather protector spray for my black leather seats. It says to test for colorfastness on a small spot with a white rag. I did and a very light brown color was left on the rag. Does this mean I should not use it? I don’t know if there is an acceptable amount or if there should be absolutely no color transferred on the rag?

外围体育投注To preface, plugged front passenger tire last week and ever since then my ebrake light has been coming on and off. Might've ruptured a brake line cuz I had to turn my tire all the way to the right to plug it.

Today I lost braking power momentarily, but came back about a minute later. Very weird. When I brake also it pulls to the right mostly. Ever since a week ago.

外围体育投注Brake fluid level doesn't seem to have changed, it's still above low line and has been for awhile. Hmm.

I don't get how I could lose braking power almost completely, momentarily?

Hi all! So my car is a 2008 Nissan with 113k miles on it. I just got it looked at because the muffler is suddenly super loud and it’s been making some other noises. The estimate I got for everything they say needs to be repaired is about $2600. Here’s the breakdown they gave me:

  • 外围体育投注Mount & balance 4 tires: $513

  • Replace struts/shocks: $853 (this is apparently what one of the noises was)

  • 外围体育投注Alignment, 4 wheels: $89

  • Exhaust complete, including cat converter: $861 (I had a patch job done once a few years back, but they’re that won’t work this time, & that it all needs to be replaced).

  • 外围体育投注Left side trans mount: $211

外围体育投注So I guess I have a few questions here. One, does the cost of all this sound about right, or am I being over charged? Two, Is this kind of maintenance normal for 113k? People have been telling me that cars should last a lot longer than 113k.

外围体育投注Would it be worth it to repair this, or should I start expecting a lot of other problems to be popping up now that would just be adding even more money onto this kind of bill? Is it time to start looking for a new car?

Any advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

外围体育投注I dont know how to explain this actually,so 4WD locked means even power,doesnt non locked 4WD just mean AWD since it sends its power to the wheel that needs it? (sorry for the bad explanation,im kinda new to cars)

外围体育投注A couple weeks ago, I had my brake fluid replaced, but now the ABS and TCS lights won’t turn off. I know low brake fluid can cause this, but that doesn’t make sense if it’s been replaced...

外围体育投注I haven’t noticed anything different, but I wanted to see if anyone had any insight.

Does anyone know what are the names for different styles of rims? I’m hoping to become a car guy when I get start driving in a year, but the only two types of rim styles I know are turbofan and turbines, and even then I’m not sure if those are actual styles. Also I just wanna clarity, I’m not talking types of rims relating to their more technical specs, just what the names of their styles are

外围体育投注Hi all, I have tried searching for this issue but haven't had any luck so far.

外围体育投注Basically the rear brake light on my drivers side won't turn off, even when the car is turned off and the lights are turned off. I disconnected the wiring for it for now so that it won't drain my battery, however I'm not sure what to to try.

外围体育投注It seems like both brake lights not turning off is relatively common but only one doing it is more rare. All of the lights work fine other than thank. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks!
