comment What could cause a metal-on-metal noise when braking only while backing?
Well, we have two theories now and it's wet and the car will sit overnight. I'll check for rust and worn pads tomorrow. Thanks!
comment How effective are exhaust patch kits?
@qes, I suppose my question is: what does short term mean in the case of a small hole? Am I buying one trip, a week, a few months? It boils down to: would this extend the effective lifetime of this section of pipe at least $10 worth, considering if I go to a muffler place and have the weld in a new section of pipe right now the cycle of rust just starts over for that new bit.
