comment Problem with locked door
It might be that the lock mechanism needs lubrication, I had a car with a similar problem.

comment Aluminium engine vs Cast Iron engine
@TafT: You are right that it isn't anything new, the 1963 Hillman Imp had an aluminium engine.

comment Is it all right to clean a car radiator with vinegar and chlorine?
I've read that mixing vinegar and bleach can release toxic chlorine gas. If you really want to use both, you might want to flush with water in between.

comment Sidewall of my tire has a tear, can this be repaired?
Are you sure your answer is addressing the question adequately? The question is not about an emergency, it's about (permanent) repair. A tyre with sidewall damage or where the fabric is exposed is not road legal (in USA, UK etc). So far as I know, Tyreweld isn't designed to seal sidewall damage, it is intended that centrifugal force spreads the liquid over the inside of the tread (not the sidewall). Could you please provide references to support the legal and effective use of Tyreweld as a temporary repair for sidewall damage.
