What do you call a drunk guy trying to start his car?
A lyft. Friends don't let friends drive drunk.

New Teslas don't come with a new car smell
They come with an Elon Musk.

While driving to work, robbers jumped into my car and stole everything.
They were pirates of the car I be in.

My last relationship ended because I didn't open the car door for her.
Instead I just swam for the surface.

I picked up a hitchhiker last night. He seemed surprised that I'd pick up a stranger. He asked, "Thanks but why would you pick me up? How would you know I'm not a serial killer?".
I told him the chances of two serial killers in a car would be astronomical.

That's what I call my 3/8s electric ratchet. The damn thing is ignorantly torquey for something not really meant to be "leaned on" and not run things on hard.

All that extra torque does is make it so when you finally bottom out the fastener it slams your hands into anything in the way.
What's a good tool for this? I might be doing my brakes soon. Something cheap preferably
I heard that y'all like clamps, here's mine
Probably these >>23243908

They’re only like $20-$25 on Amazon and come with all the assorted adapters for the parking brake (if needed).
you need a special tool to do this? i just use pliers

People think it's the glass cleaner that matters when it's acutally the towels, and you could even use plain water with the right towels. (two waffle weaves, one to wipe the glass cleaner and one to wipe the residue, wash these separatey)
Autoglym fast glass and microfiber towel.
If you care about you long term personal health, you should avoid most of cleaners in aerosol cans because most of them contain propellants that are bad for your health by inhalation and can give you a lung cancer.

Let's talk about the next season, expectations, rumors and the like. We have some official information:

>Renault will become Alpine F1, with 2 times world champion Fernando Alonso returning to F1
>Aston Martin returns through the Racing Point F1 Team, with Vettel Leaving Ferrari and joining them, but losing Sergio Perez.
>Ferrari loses Vettel but has signed Carlos Sainz
>Haas loses both drivers
>Mclaren will sign Ricciardo, who left Renault, they are also switching their renault enginges with mercedes power units.

I'm a bit stoked for the Alpine team, Alonso was my favorite driver as a kid, although they are keeping the same engine so there's little chance for a victory in 2021, 2022 new engine rules are being introduced so maybe there's some change.
F1 is literally dead, anon.
some truths are better when ignored
I'm not watching V6 shitboxes competing to see who'll use least fuel
god damn lol, rip fjuan.
To be honest, thats not even the reason why F1 is dead, although it didnt help and/or made things even worse.

I cannot detemine if this is a deep stratch. I tried checking it with fingernail, it doesn't get stuck when i move across it but I can still feel a slight difference. The red paint is from another car that I scratched. I tried toothpaste method, at beggining it made stratches dissappear, but when it dried out it was simmilar to before, maybe just a slight improvement.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Isopropyl alcohol.

I want to learn how to do simple-moderate car repairs. I've never done anything with tools in my life. Going to depend on YouTube to learn. Is this a good tool set to start with?

Kobalt 319-Piece Mechanics Tool Set $71.55 YMMV

16 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Yes, this is fine. I've been starting to learn how to wrench myself recently after the past couple of years. Not much but I started off with a boxed set like this also but mine costed a bit over 100.

You won't use most of the stuff, but unless you want to piece together your own set, just get this to start off.
do it anon. I take car of my car with a 20$ box of wrenches/ratchets and my haynes manual. You can do it too.
Milwaukee 2767 high torque 1/2”, you can get the tool and 5.0 battery on sale for $250 all the time. Don’t waste time with the M18 Fuel mid-torque unless you already have the high torque, you will regret not spending $50 more. For the ratchets and smaller impacts, M12 Fuel stubby impact, honestly you can run a 1/4” hex with socket adapters and get a lot done, and they have deals on M12 stuff with free tools like the ratchet at Home Depot all the time. The cordless stuff is so much nicer to use, especially at home where you don’t have a big 240v industrial compressor.

You will never hit full power specs on most air tools with a 120v compressor. There is only so much power you can get from a 15A breaker, plus you’re tethered to a hose and won’t be able to help out a friend in his driveway or when somebody breaks down in a parking lot.

There’s a reason why tons and tons of mechanics are switching to electric, even in shops where they have good air supplies.
>at home where you don’t have a big 240v industrial compressor.
Do poorfags really?
Lots of people have 240 in the garage, but less have $3000+ compressors.

240 is good to have, but it’s still not worth it for the compressor when cordless tools are getting so good. I love grabbing the impact without having to go deaf from the compressor and unroll air hoses, makes it so fast to pull off a wheel and check on something, plus a 4.0 battery will hold a useful charge for a year or more.

Do Jap cars have thinner metal than American?

If I buy a Jap car I'm certain it'll rust right through faster. Sure, an American might have cheaper small parts that break, but they're cheap to replace and at least I'll actually have a car/frame to still drive, rather than disintegrating. Rather than "so reliable" Jap than having it fade to dust, even if its still going.

This applies to all cars of all times. Pic related is a so called Japanese "luxury" car, I saw one in person, and the metal was hilariously tinny.

Id rather have a big engine and and strong metal at the expense of cheap plastic interiors and little things.

German cars are the best quality wise, but all that electronic over engineered fuckery makes them less reliable, even if physically the cars are good and that's too far off the deep end.

>nobody keeps anything longer than 5 years

This is the most likely reason. China is even worse from what I’ve heard. Makes you wonder what will happen once chinkmobiles become commonplace. Those will probably hold together a few years at most.
Toyota, especially from 00s and onward seem to hold together really well, even compared to euro cars.

Japan is ezmode
I lived in China for 5 years and I couldn't even bother to get a car with how ridiculous everything was
I knew someone with a 90s holden that had a small accident that removed some paint to bare metal, it didn't rust.
I once open the door on an 80's corolla and the door was unbelievably light but the cressida had a heavy feeling door.
