A different perspective: Generally when I clean the inside of a car, most or all of the doors end up being open, with me crawling in and out with the vacuum or whatever other cleaning equipment is needed. In such a situation, A/C is completely useless. The heat that the A/C system does manage to pull out of the interior air is exhausted from under the ...

As with all things.Safety is the primary concern. It would be advisable to do your vehicle cleaning outside in the fresh air. As in the article cited below (Wikipedia) Exposure to Carbon Monoxide is cumulative and could overwhelm you long before you are aware of it. By that time it may be too late. The volume of CO in the structure is of less concern than ...

You would probably be okay, given the assumptions posted by others, like perfect air mixing throughout the garage. But are you willing to bet your life--and that of anyone else who may walk in--on assumptions like that? Remember carbon monoxide has no odor, and exhaust from a well-tuned modern engine doesn't smell much either. Buy a CO detector, and then you'...

Is your Check Engine Light on? That's a rhetorical question, what I mean to say is that if your ’04 Forester is in good tune, it really should not produce that much carbon monoxide. Also, there are really no long-term health hazzards of non-chronic carbon monoxide exposure, other than death. (It binds with red blood cells in a way that prevents transport ...

I can't really say "you'll be okay", because it's about how our body reacts, but I'd say yes, it's enough. There are underground parkings where engines are running all the time. Also you can buy a little carbon monoxide sensor which will yell at you if it's too much. Just type "carbon monoxide sensor" on eBay; there are plenty of them for a cheap price. All ...

This sounds more like a problem with the app then the Subaru audio system. I would try playing music or a different app and taking a call. If that works fine, you know it's a problem with the app. A OneClickdigital Version 2.1 release document available here addresses problems people were experiencing during phone calls on Android devises. If you can ...

The symptoms of a bad throwout bearing are (usually) noise with the clutch disengaged, which goes away when the clutch is pressed in. You were getting the exact opposite, which indicates that you're suffering input shaft wear, which is common on 5MT Subaru transmissions. With input shaft wear, the shaft gets a little bit smaller over time, but the throw-...

Too long for comment, but I suspect wastegate linkage or door not closing fully due to distortion from heat (it's really hot around there). You could try and get it hot enough to duplicate the problem, park, and attempt operate the wastegate manually with pliers or gloves... but it's tricky to get to without removing the turbo heatshield. Also make sure ...

In addition to the other answers: The Mazda3 is an odd case. Apparently the US specification says 'no towing', but the EU spec has these towing capacities for the same car: Braked trailer kg 900 Unbraked trailer kg 550 That is 1984 lbs braked and 1212 lbs unbraked, not too far off from the Outback, and about what I'd expect. The Outback weighs ...

Just returned from an 1100 mile round trip from Rochester NY to Dayton and back. Our 2013 Subaru outback limited (4 cylinder) towed an Aliner. Trailer weight without gear is 1525 lbs. There were 2 passengers (me and wife) and I estimate we carried approx. 500 lbs of camping stuff. Rochester to Dayton does not have any severe hills. Camper is equipped with ...
