comment Easiest way to disable the A/C compressor
@vlsd Apart from the less effective defroster setting, I don't see any problems with a removed A/C system. Removing the compressor, condenser, dryer and the lines connecting them will be fairly straightforward. The evaporator is up under the dash with the heater core and will be a huge pain to remove. Probably best to plug the lines and forget about it.

@vlsd In that case you could remove the belt, I suppose.

comment 2005 Toyota Rav4 Won't Start
If the timing chain actually broke, valve damage would be possible if the engine is an interference design. I'd think it more likely that the compression test results would just indicate that the timing is screwed up unless valve damage was actually observed.

So there is fuel and spark present, but it's still not starting? How about a compression test on a random cylinder? If it was me, I would check that before looking at the timing chain.

Did the mechanic check for fuel pressure and spark?

comment Did slamming on my brakes really fix them?
I think there are additional steps in the flush / bleed procedure for some ABS systems that may require a scan tool. Though I'll defer to Larry's wisdom.

comment 3 Questions related to fixing/replacing 2005 Toyota Prius bumpers?
Normally the sensors are only triggered by impacts of a certain severity. As mikes is pointing out though, stuff happens. It's probably prudent to safe the system.

comment Removing scuff marks from paintwork
@Freshens In addition to the information Nick has requested, can we get the make/model and perhaps the year? This information will help us help you.

comment 2003 Ford Escape..strong fuel smell
Check the fuel tank straps. There was a recall on some 2003 Ford Trucks for corrosion issues, and I've seen one report of a similar problem on a 2003 Escape (not part of the recall as far as I can tell).
