How did you check the plugs? Did you see them producing sparks?

comment Renault Fluence voltage source under dashboard
This question doesn't have enough information to answer it well. Does the device need exactly 12V, "automobile 12V", approximately 12V, or some specific voltage less than 12V? Do you want it always-on, or switched by the ignition? Permanently connected or just temporary? While the vehicle is moving? Does it have its own fuse?

comment 2001 honda civic failing to start when hot
You can also pick up one for under $20 on Amazon: amazon.com/Autel-MaxiScan-MS300-Diagnostic-Vehicles/dp/…. Don't get ripped off paying $60-200 for one at an auto parts store. But like others have said, if you just want one scan, stores will usually do it for you for free.

comment Rear LCA bushings worn out - better to just replace the whole LCA?
I bought the Blox LCA's and installed them and so far they've done the job just fine. Turned out it wasn't just the bushing that was bad; the bolt through it was completely broken in half.

comment Broken power window switch on 1998 Outback
I ended up doing just that - attaching it with a gob of JB Weld. It doesn't work as smoothly as the other switches, but it stays in place and looks fine.

comment Steering very difficult on 1996 Taurus
I don't know what it ended up being - my friend took it to a mechanic and spent nearly $1000 having this and another small issue or two fixed. Anyway this answer was well-written and helpful so I'll go ahead and accept it rather than leaving the question without an accepted answer.

comment Two-stroke engine won't start - water in gas?
Even if the rain is related and there's water in the fuel, draining the fuel is probably going to be necessary.

comment Repair or replace rusted rear wheel arches on 92 Civic?
Found a better example of a similar procedure (without the mesh, but I might use old window screen for mesh) which I added to the question.

As for body fill, why wouldn't something like this procedure work? instructables.com/id/repairing-a-rust-hole-in-a-car
