comment Does torque decrease mathematically?
The torque at the engine will be the same. The torque at the wheels would different. Not sure if it's directly correlated to weight, which is what you seem to be asking.

comment Thumping from rear of car after shutdown: EVAP system?
I have a similar issue with a 2008 GTI. I was thinking fuel/emissions related. It sounds like a motor/pump of some sort? Mine does this while driving sometimes (and it's not the fuel pump, AFAICT).

comment How to diagnose ABS problem (ABS light on) on a 1992 Volvo 940 turbo diesel estate?
1992 is OBD-I, which is pretty much proprietary/manufacturer specific diagnostics. Your best bet is a Haynes or similar manual for that model. Otherwise, what Sam Jones said.

comment Car driving experience not smooth
You'll have to be more specific. What isn't smooth? Is it at a certain speed? When turning? When going over rough terrain? What? Also, I highly doubt you can notice any change in engine smoothness after an oil change--save for the placebo effect.

comment Riding mower won't start with new battery
+1, I'm betting on corroded contacts somewhere (which lower effective voltage), and/or a bad relay.

Was the engine broken in properly after being rebuilt? What was the compression right after the rebuild?

comment Volvo 940 Drivers power window won't go up
+1, if the motor were dead it wouldn't go down. Plus, a lot of manufacturers run full current through the switches, which induces corrosion.
