comment Change in exhaust note after extreme backfires--what did I break?
I left out the part about how I started with a near-dead battery, which may have precipitated/exacerbated the flooding. As I said, not a fun morning.

@Larry It ran great a week prior. Do you mean as a result of the backfiring?

comment 2007 Chevrolet Impala over Heating
When you say "no heat at idle" are you talking about not getting any heat to the cabin of the car, or that the radiator is not getting hot?

comment air conditioner no longer working in 2005 Chevy Impala?
This is a very good answer that could be further improved by some thoughtful formatting. At a minimum some line breaks would help readability. Your procedure could be turned into a numbered list to highlight the step-by-step nature.

comment Best way to approach a tire with a bubble in the sidewall
Just to be on the record here, sidewall bubbles can also be the result of driving on an under-inflated tire, which causes undue sidewall flex and heat buildup, which can cause the separation/delamination that forms the bubble. Check tire pressures often!
