comment Poor idle speed when engine is warm
Idle control valves usually get stuck and leave you revving higher than normal.

comment Is it possible to drain oil pan without getting any oil on your fingers?
I don't think you'll get every drop out this way, but it's a good alternative.

comment Steering wheel “center” different from vehicle “straight”
This frequently happens when you take your car for an alignment. When was the last time you saw someone get behind the wheel of your car during the alignment process? It's just not something they care about as long as the wheels are straight. Take it back and have them fix it.

comment Diagnosing pinging issue in 2003 Nissan Sentra
From a quick google search, you should be using 91 at minimum. that would be about 95RON (if anyone else is interested). Though why it was working previously and now it isn't, I don't know. Was it particularly hot, or were you in slow traffic?

The other way round is obviously pretty bad though.

Diesel is "higher octane" than petrol. It would actually be harder to ignite it.

Is that 93Octane measured by the American method? Or is that 93RON?

comment CAN Bus action list
Yeah, but I don't think the Bluetooth adapter supports this. Especially not if it's one of the generic ELM-scan/OBD-Scan ones like I have. I had to buy a Tactrix cable to gain access to advanced functions in my Subaru. But I might be wrong. As far as I am aware, you'd need a specialised CAN-Bluetooth adapter, rather than OBD-Bluetooth. That being said, check out this link: kickstarter.com/projects/etx/…
