comment Problem starting Husqvarna Kohler 20 hp Gas Powered Riding Mower.
Can you describe what the mower is doing when you try to start it? Did you put new gas in it before trying to start it?

comment Nissan Pulsar ST1.8 oil filter change
I've always tried to avoid hammering a screwdriver into the oil filter. It makes a big mess. I agree with @NickC, get a strap type filter wrench.

+1 for the axle stands. Much safer than just a jack.

comment Water droplets on inside of glass that covers headlight
+1 for answering your own question. Good link, but I don't know if I would put the headlights in the oven. Just let the sun dry them out and then make sure your seals are good.

Are they aftermarket speakers? Are they hooked up to an amp? You say the crackle is random, but is it always at a higher volume?
