comment Oil leaks after oil change - shop says engine oil pan gasket needs to be replaced
Presumably the $200 is the "installed" cost, not just the parts cost, but that can't be less than two and a half hours of labor or their hourly is more than a dealership's, so still absurd.

comment How to find and access the actual terminals of car battery
Just to be a little more clear about what is touchable, the negative post is already electrically connected to the car's body and engine, so you don't have to worry about touching that post at the same time as anything not directly connected to the positive post. (And stuff directly connected to positive should be covered up, like the positive post itself is, in order to prevent accidental contact.)

comment Switching off the AC before turning off the engine to increase longevity - urban myth?
Although the accepted answer there is incomplete at best; the other answer is correct (to the best of my knowledge, anyways).

comment Would “one cylinder's out” semantics include a head gasket?
Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question are pretty much guaranteed to be entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.

comment Clock inoperative, 2006 Toyota Yaris
This question is off-topic because it's about electronics components. It should not have been migrated.

comment 2001 Fiat punto: slave cylinder repaired brake warning light
Can you explain why you think your brake warning light should be related to work on your clutch cylinder? Did you check your brake fluid level?

comment 1974 VW Bug Headliner
Can you be more specific about the procedure and equipment you used? Just asking for more suggestions doesn't seem likely to produce any new information for you, without knowing where you're starting from.
