comment what is the difference between DOT3 and DOT4 brake fluids?
I’ve rejected the edit, because it changes the post completely, and make it contradict within itself. If the post is wrong, it should be downvoted and that should be substantiated with references (same goes for author). The edit may well be a correct one, but there is no reference, and it is better suited as a comment.

comment Malibu turns over, does not start
@MarkJohnson That is what the unit looks like: [image](i.ebayimg.com/00/s/OTYwWDEyODA=/…. The plastic housing incorporates plug boots on the bottom, and pack on top (with aluminium heatsink).

comment Honda Civic braking problems in warm climate
@fassetar, while this is a good answer, and probably a correct one (air in the brake system would indeed cause same symptoms), you should not award the acceptance just because it “looks” right. Try to fix the car first, and if that is indeed what had caused it, then accept.

Maybe you should elaborate the above within your answer. Otherwise, essentially one-sentence reply is not quality.

comment How often do I need to change my oil in a VW TDI?
@Ken, if manufacturer require synthetic, and specifies 10 000 mile interval — this is all you need to know. Well, you also need to know if the mechanic is going to put synthetic in as well, and that they not just giving you general recommendation based on conventional oil usage. As mentioned in other answers, if the car is not subject to frequent heavier operation (towing, excessive hill climbing, a lot of stop-and-go traffic etc.), the normal service interval is good enough.

comment Can I improve fuel economy by changing differential’s gear ratio?
Provide more details about your car. What year is it? Does it have older 1.6 L carburetted engine, or newer 1.7 L fuel-injected or some other? Is the vehicle was originally sold in Russia or neighbouring countries, or was it export version that may have had Western European transmission components installed?
