comment Stubborn oil drain plug caused by hot oil?
The length of the handle - a 12" or 18" solid bar one instead of a standard 8" ratchet handle... Make sure you're using the right size socket for the bolt, and that it's a 6-sided one so that it grips the bolt head as well as possible

comment Second hand car - Engine/Tyres/Etc
@Dan, yes, many people use a loan to buy a car - and put the car itself down as collateral for the loan. You need to be sure there isn't any such outstanding loan, otherwise the loan company would still officially be the owner of the car, and the seller would be selling something that didn't belong to them!

comment Hissing sound near brake pedal, stops on brake pedal press
It should be - the likely side effect of the vacuum failing altogether would be a loss of servo assistance, so the brakes would go very heavy, but still work. However, if you're worried, take it to another garage for a second opinion (Don't rely on strangers on the internet for safety critical advice ;) )

reviewed Close I drove my car about 1 km before realising that I didn't release the handbrake. Will this cause any big problems to my car?
