  1. We bought a Volvo S40 2005 manual with 160000 miles … recently had to replace the gearbox.. what should I look out for and is this car a reli car

    • Depress clutch fully at correct RPMs, listen rather than looking down at your TACH and keep her under 55MPH for first 100 miles, & enjoy.
      It probably wasn’t your fault, a bit of metal chipped off the fork and the gears ground it & themselves up.
      Save the receipt to show to new owner when you sell it, next week if your smart.
      Just kidding, get the euro medallion for 300,000 Klms and stick it on the grill to impress your transmission mechanic he’ll be your best friend by then.

  2. I have a 328 guide 2008 BMW I ran out of gas it was running like new and now it’s no start ever since
    What should I do

  3. 2001 Suburu Outback 280k miles automatic trans. bought from private person. It sounded as if the catalyst was either missing or stopped up and Thankfully it was intact so I treated it and did the basics ie. synthetic oil change and gas treatments. It seemed to sound and run okay HOWEVER, It seems to have lost compression especially uphill so I need advice as to how to correct or improve this issue. Im thinking it possibly an oxygen sensor. Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated as well as your prompt attention to my issue. Looking forward to a reply regarding my issue.
