comment Check Engine code P0420 Catalyst efficiency below threshold bank 1
@Shamtam: Well both errors went away when I changed the spark plugs. Misfires will let unburned fuel into the cat which ruins it, right?

comment SRS indicator light keeps coming on, code 7-2 “Internal failure of SRS unit”
Yep, they want $600 to replace the control module, and charged $100 for the scan, but then say they will take $100 off the $600 if I bring it back to them to fix.

"Front Wheel Drive cars - This is a tricky situation, because it is natural to assume that the wheels that have to do the pulling (front wheel on front wheel drive car) should have the best traction. The natural assumption is the wrong one and the likely reason that the installation of two new tires is done wrong on so many front wheel drive cars." ajforeignauto.com/…

comment How to recharge AC using booster from auto parts store?
@MarkJohnson The instructions say "shaking and rotating from 12 o’clock to 3 o’clock every few seconds". I assumed this was to get oil from the can into the system, since it says "Restores lost refrigerant and oil"?
