comment My best options with a BMW that has a blown engine
Also - How did the mechanic arrive at that number? How much of it is parts vs. labor?

comment My best options with a BMW that has a blown engine
Did the mechanic show you the damage? How much do you trust them? Have you considered getting a second opinion?

comment Late 90 Honda Civic cooling system hose broke off ,is it safe to drive?
Are you also spelling a burning material smell? If it's a stuck caliper, this is likely the asbestos from the padding on the brakes.

comment I scraped my car against my moms and i need to remove the white scratches
What happens to the hot glue, then? Does it detach from the body in the process of pulling? And last - are the ding tabs reusable after the pull, or good for only one time each?

When downshifting clutchless, why isn't it sufficient to just press gas?

comment Safe way to drill through the engine bay firewall
Agree with @cdunn -- this should be as simple as popping out a grommet, fitting the wires through it, and pushing it back into place. Also, I've never seen a firewall that didn't have an array of holes already cut and already filled with grommets (some already in use) that you can leverage.

comment 2000 Celica engine dies or shakes when I pump gas
There's always the possibility that you're stirring up sediment on the bottom of the fuel tank, and that's entering the fuel line.

comment 2000 Celica engine dies or shakes when I pump gas
@JPhi1618 It's also possible that the ECU is trying to compensate for the fuel system pressure change due to the pump being inserted...

@DucatiKiller Appears to be no leakage at all; it's been months, and the reservoir is full.

comment The critical components that define an Adv tourer from other motorcycles
As it stands, this question is very broad. It also solicits opinion. If you could narrow down the reliability to certain features of motorcycles, and how durable particular components may be, as well as known failure points, etc, you might have better luck at getting an answerable question. Try to concentrate on points that can be factually answered, possibly with research.)

comment My mechanic forgot to put Coolant and now my car is not work! what can i do? or who should i blame
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is a legal issue between you and your mechanic. Sorry, but it sounds like the engine may be destroyed, and this site is unable to offer legal advice on how to proceed.
