comment What is my friend's wife not telling him (about this tire)?
@KromStern: Markdown allows us to separate meaning from formatting. The edit has introduced the correct meaning. Complaints about the formatting should be addressed to the developers on Meta who are responsible for the styling of posts via Markdown->HTML translation on SE. Using the wrong meaning to achieve some specific, transient formatting is the same approach that made early website development such hell! :)

comment What is my friend's wife not telling him (about this tire)?
@KromStern: No, these are headings, so the heading formatting is entirely appropriate. If you think that the heading style is too large, you can raise a request on Meta.SE to have it reduced, or install a custom stylesheet into your browser.

comment How can I keep stray cats off my car?
@Xen2050: "you can keep your dog tied to a fixed rope/chain outside for 3hrs a day" That is what is known as "cruel"!! I don't really care what some American police department says lol

comment How to raise the car higher than the jack stands will allow?
I agree with @David. The wood at the top isn't correctly aligned, either. You wouldn't see me getting under there.

comment How to find out if my non-fuel injected car has a rev limiter?
@HandyHowie: No, I'm referring to the "learn the speed readout at the maximum RPM of each gear" part.

comment How to find out if my non-fuel injected car has a rev limiter?
@HandyHowie: Because, compared to gliding along a flat residential road in calm weather with no passengers and a near-empty fuel tank, your engine needs to work harder to get your car to the same speed up a mountain if you have five suitcases in it and there is a gale force wind trying to push it backwards.

Your speed-based thresholds will change depending on load, weather and incline.

comment Clio I indicator control non-functional
@Paulster2: No click, no dashboard light, no external light activity. Either side. (And I wanna emphasise that the hazard light works normally for all those factors.)
