comment What is a “confidential vehicle identification” number?
Where did you hear about this, and in what context?

comment Odometer gained 65,000 miles after battery replacement
@Joshua: It would help a lot if you could say what you know about the vehicle's history. Were there previous owners who could have tampered with the odometer? Does the history and condition of the vehicle make it plausible that the true mileage is in fact 23,000?

comment What will cause my Ford Expedition not to start?
Can you be more descriptive about the idling "trouble"? What exactly was happening? What exactly happens when you try to start the vehicle (lights, sounds, etc)? Have you tested the battery? What year is the vehicle? You can use the edit button to add details.

comment Odometer gained 65,000 miles after battery replacement
@Paulster2: So you think the shop did something that caused the odometer to revert to the correct value? What could that be? Or are you just saying that erratic odometer behavior could be caused by previous tampering (and that 91,000 is not necessarily the correct value either)? I agree that a 13 year old car with only 23,000 miles is extremely unusual, even suspicious.

comment Why would engine noise in cabin be much worse in one vehicle compared to another?
Maybe one just has a louder engine than the other? Do they sound equally loud from outside?

What country was this in? And do you know in which country the car was manufactured?

comment Can I use a different size donut spare tire for my 97 Accord?
Note that these tires are larger than your current donut, so they may not fit in your spare tire compartment.

comment Can I use a different size donut spare tire for my 97 Accord?
A donut spare is usually smaller diameter than the standard tires to begin with, so you would have this problem even with the factory-supplied donut, right? That's presumably one of the many reasons why you should only use the donut in emergencies, for short distances at low speeds. Actually, if I read the numbers correctly, the alternatives the OP is considering are actually larger in diameter than the original donut (though still smaller than the standard tires), so they would seem to make this problem better, not worse.

To clarify: when you say "spare tire" you're talking about buying the tire and wheel together? Certainly if you just buy a 15-inch tire and try to install it on your existing 14-inch wheel, it isn't going to work.

comment Signs of a bad transmission?
Have you checked the transmission fluid level? Have you had it changed on schedule?
