Lol British teeth isn't even a meme, those fuckers are yellow.


The best part is that we all """owe""" China shitloads of money, but at the end of the day they have no real means to collect. We could default on our loans to them 1,000,000 times and they'd have jack shit to do about it. They barely exist as a slave-state to the West, if they ever tried to challenge that position we'd just revoke manufacturing and move it to some other third world shithole desperate for a chance at improving their GDP.

>26 years old, got license a few months ago, still no car because nervous to drive on my own and don't have a ton of practice driving

how to overcome the fear /o?/
17 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
I didn't get my license until I was 22.
My dad just never took me to get my license; he never took me driving, either. Luckily my uncle taught me to drive when I was younger, so I wasn't completely hopeless.
A state over isn't much in the east coast, and it's potentially a two day trip in the west. Need a better game plan than that.
OP here, my parents never took me driving. they werent gonna let me get my license till i was 18 then when i turned 18 they wouldnt help

then my mom had this old toyota she stopped driving that she said she was gonna fix up and give me to learn with and she never did that either, so i just kept delaying and delaying it mostly out of my own embarrassment
Nah dude, it’s a practiced skill. Get out there and drive and you’ll get used to it.

It was difficult overcoming the thought of traveling at a high rate of speed, with opposing traffic only 1-2 feet from you going +80.

Then I stopped caring about whether or not I died, and my driving improved quite a bit.
Seriously though I think I have clinical depression.

Should I change the coolant of my 90's shitbox? I bought it more than 3 years ago and I only place water on the radiator.

I live in a warm climate if that matters.
15 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Apparently it's very valid, because I've run only distilled water during the summer and driven in city stop and go traffic and with data logging I could see my coolant temperature which was exactly where it was supposed to be and the fan kicked on at a normal rate, aka only while stopped at lights for a long period of time.
And it's very valid for racecars where they want the most heat dissipation possible. Adding glycol would actually increase their coolant and engine temperatures which is exactly what they're trying to avoid.

I agree daily drivers don't need that increased heat dissipation though, I'm just explain that you don't NEED antifreeze if the temperature never drops below freezing. I highly suggest everyone puts a 50/50 mix into their cooling system unless they have a track car and need greater heat dissipation or they're fucking broke and in a hot climate.
thats not a fwd car.
water is acceptable to a point, depending on where u live. also prolongs the life of the block

distilled water is a better choice in that case

coolant is superior by all means, in every case

MILK might work too. idk. id like to think it MIGHT but then again milk GETS FOAMY when its hot. id like 2 try it on some pos car, or read up on the net bc surely some idiot has done it before; but i havent take the time 2 do that rly.

or towing
It's not that hard. Go look it up online. Just get some ramps and be sure to fully burp the cooling system of air or it'll overheat and break shit.

If you live in an area that never freezes go with 2 parts distilled water 1 part coolant concentrate.

You should probably do a few flushes with distilled water to rinse out the rust.

All OEM coolants contain anti-corrosion additives in them to prevent rusting the engine from the inside out. These additives change based upon the metals that are touched by the coolant loop. Make sure you use the specified coolant for your car and never mix coolant without a full flush if you are switching coolant types/brands.

Rome wasn't built in a day. Here's a fab job I did on a $300k car. May just look like 1 bend and one tacked in captive nut, but allow me to quote Antoine de Saint-Exupery "Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away." Could I weld 30 prefab tabs onto a Dana 60? Sure. It takes a fabrication genius to come up with the simplest, most elegant solution to do the job.

Yeah I just need to spend some time on it. I just have a crappy Lincoln wire feed and the available adjustments are pretty lackluster. Just wire speed, 1/2 for heat and 1/2 for power.
Can it use gas or is it flux core only? If you really want to hone your welding chops get an oxy acetylene torch, tough to weld with but will give you the best possible feel for heat/speed, plus it's cheap and you can cut/heat up metal with it, good thing to have.

I like this one.

My car shakes slightly only when I take off from a stop and it feels like its coming from the engine or transmission. What is this? Also my tranny is slipping in all gears except 2nd if this helps diagnose the problem.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Easy first step: check the trans fluid, you may not have enough and need to add some.

After that it could be anything, from a solenoid going bad, to a bad torque converter.

Well then just live with it.
The shake could be from worn engine mounts.

The shake is not the problem you need to worry about.

My brand new crossover has met an untimely fate and I figured I would step up considering its always used for outdoorsy stuff. I initially wanted a xterra but the ones here are beat to shit because people use them for off-roading. Same applies to trucks so I will be buying new. Any idea of a capable small suv or small trucks? I wanted something the size of the xterra but I can't seem to find any brands with small off-roaders. North America here so no euro specific stuff

I have a 2015 bought new 29000 miles now
It is pretty good truck.
Fuel economy is not great 16mpg
Overall happy with my truck
its the last "old" design(meaning simple) small truck you can buy in North America. They're pretty good if you care about something like that otherwise a Tacoma or Colorado may be better if you're inter newer designs. Personally I think you're money is best spent on a used Ranger or older Tacoma since they're not hard to find in good condition and are simple to work on but if you're buying new the Frontier is the best option.
>tfw no new 70 series Land Cruiser here
Xterra 4x4 owner here. I’ve had mine since new, bought in 2008 and now has 201k miles on it. I love it, have had no major issues with it. If anything get a Frontier with 4x4 or find a newer Xterra. Manual trans would be best because the 4.0s had an issue with coolant and transmission fluid mixing with auto transmissions.

What do you reckon in terms of this for a first car mates? $1175 USD, auto, 1992 BMW 318i. Family friend selling it. Good deal Y/N?

First car should always be a Civic, Accord, Camry etc. You asked cause you know deep down your doubts about it are founded in reality. BMW doesn't make cheap to maintain, cheap to repair cars, especially in america.

There is literally no shame in buying a Civic as a first car and you'll be way more respected for taking care of and maintaining a cheap Civic than blowing your wad on a bottom-rung BMW that was never meant to be anything other than a BMW for people who can't afford a 'real' BMW.
As with buying any used car, check the maintenance records, perform a thorough inspection, and take it for a test drive. Don't shy away from being hard on it. You could get better for $1200 though, depending how long you have to find something.
>Groids have had their way with it, avoid
>especially in america
I'm not actually in the USA, just decided to convert the price to make it easier to give advice

Ease of repair is a good concern though, but are 318is considered reliable?
Definitely gonna take it for a test drive the day after tomorrow, thanks for the good advice though. I'm just seeing if it's an atrocious car and I should start working on my knock-back-without-hurting-feeling speech, or if it's good and worth going ahead with

this has to be bait. no one could be this stupid.
Is it really that bad? Elaborate for me, I'm not baiting, just want to get a good first car

Do you guys keep an empty water bottle in the glove box or on the mat of the back seats in case you're stuck in a traffic jam and absolutely need to pee, too?

I always try to laugh it off when a passenger asks me why there's an empty bottle, like "guess I forgot to throw it away haha", but I wonder if that's actually weird.

Yeah, that would be horrible for anyone because not just because the splashback but the temperature (extreme heat/cold). My parents once had a beater that had a hole in the floor covered up with an old license plate, so on heavy rain days up to an inch of water could get inside the car.

desu i have tried but i am pee shy and can not piss in traffic jams, also the bottle is to small to put my dick in. An empty bottle is not weird as people always leave garbage around their car. I have bottles too, some empty some not, its for bong water also its good to stay hydrated

tfw own all my vehicles outright
I was doing some contract work for a car company and I overheard a guy complaining about how he was paying 600/mo for his honda

why are people so fucking stupid?
You don't own shit faggot, the government owns it
I don't live in America dear.

The government allows me the privilege to operate them on public roads but I own the vehicles themselves.

I'm free to own as many unregistered vehicles as I like, the government can't do shit about it as long as I'm not breaking any laws with them.
Writing a $34k check for a car is a nice feeling.
