What's the best product for de-odorizing cars? Just bought a used one and it's a little musty. I've tried this but don't really notice much of a difference

steam clean the carpet and seats

covering up the smell wont make it go away, you need to eradicate the source of the smell
likely mildew under carpets and possibly growing in the vents

This but do the whole step of pulling the carpet seats out of the car, as much as you reasonably can.

How do you get a license plate for a car when you buy off a private buyer? Can I buy it beforehand without the title? This is driving me crazy because I can't find an answer. I live in ny if that matters

this is true
>>19771715
this is false

>>19769433
The law here says I can drive a vehicle home from the purchase without a current registration.
Last time I did that, I got pulled over 2x in 120 miles, state trooper and county mountie, showed them my license, handwritten dated receipt, pointed to my wife who pulled over ahead of us, and proceeded home.
>>
Just attach a registered plate from another vehicle and drive it uninsured and unregistered
>>
>>19772391
Good idea, you should also hang a pistol from the rearview mirror and throw some "back off" Yosamite Sam mud flaps on there.
>>
>>19770705
>Your first stop after the purchase should be the DMV.
Depending on where you live you can be more or less lax. I bought a car in Chicago, drove it down to St Louis, and drove it for a week before I got any sort of tags on it and had no trouble with it. Probably don’t do that, but don’t freak out if you get your car on a Friday and have to wait through the weekend for the DMV to open or something.

How bad for the clutch is it to use the biting point as a brake? I've been doing it for around 2 months now on my first car as my commute has a lot of stop and start traffic on inclines, and it's easier than using the handbrake over and over, but my friend just told me it can fuck your clutch.

should say, this holds true for all stops, not just on hills. Your driving instructor should have told you all this shit though.
>>
>>19772046
>>19772043
I was gonna say do I still use footbrake on hills or always handbrake.

He probably did, but I passed almost 4 years ago, and I've just got my first car and a job which is an hours drive away, so it's like learning all over again.

Nice one for the advice though.

>>19772004

I've done this for years and never needed a clutch replacement.

>>19771977
R&r of most transmissions cost on the order of $900-$1000 in labor alone. Brake jobs usually cost less than 200 and don't require expensive tools.

Do you want to pay that grand in a few months or several years from now?
>>
>>19772290
You must enjoy driving with a glazed clutch.

Just bought a mx5 rf club w/brembos over a stock mustang GT for around the same price.

The full sized SUV's have/had decent room in the back row. Some modern minivans do but you have no cargo room with the 3rd row up.
>>
>>19773173
No, it isn't Justin. Only a true minivan's 3rd row seats are the best. A 3rd row in a crossover is just a marketing scheme.
>>
>>19773131
People usually don't use these with seven adults anyway. The third row is meant for minors in families with four or five children, or for carrying your children's friends every now and then.
>>
My father recently started looking at buying a "fullsize crossover" and is currently considering a Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot.
I honestly have no idea why. He lives by himself. He never has more than 1 passenger in his car.

How do I talk him out of it?

Two of my friends leased these cars, and while they seem really nice and well equiped for the price point, mazda cuts some serious corners to gain an edge on it's competitors. Friend As car developed a shitty opaqueness on the infotainment screen within a year of owning the car. Friend B's car started having clear coat failure around year two of ownership. Theres a reason these cars seem so nice at the price point, it's because their shite

Sup /o/

Need some help, for the past week or so when ever I'm in boost/on the throttle there's a high pitched whistling noise coming from the car. My airbox lid was jacked up so I thought it was that at first, but after replacing I still have the noise. I've tightened every hose clamp I can find (including all the intake piping and intercooler piping), I even ripped out and plugged the sound symposer (p.o.s.), still have the sound.

At this point I'm suspecting it may be a leaky wastegate or maybe a leaky waste gate actuator. I'm holding good boost still (25+ PSI consistently), no negative corrections, and AFR is 11+. It's driving me nuts. I can't pinpoint exactly where the sound is coming from, and it also doesn't make the noise while in neutral.

Diagnose my issue please /o/!

Am I the only one who sometimes wear operator gloves while driving?

Makes me feel like some badass SEAL operator from Medal of Honor or those Sicario movies while also giving me much needed grip during maneuvers since the stock steering has little to no girth.
