comment How can I know if the right oil has been added to the vehicle?
@IanRingrose: Yeah that was a pull from the hat. In the US you can find places doing oil changes as low as $15 during promotions. I personally use Red Line Synthetic in my own vehicle which runs me about $70 for 5 quarts and a decent filter.

comment Failing alternator, idler pulley, or something else?
It could be the belt itself (the sound of it passing over the different pulleys). Could also be the water pump pulley or the A/C compressor pulley. It's not likely that it's the crank pulley (the one that drives all the others) or you'd have other problems. You can try the old trick of rubbing a bar of soap (plain old Dial or something similar) on the underside of the belt to see if that quiets anything down. If not, then it's probably a bearing in one of the pulleys. The best chance of figuring out which one is to take off the belt and check each one.

comment What are the brake specs on a 2008 VW GTI?
@user1337: The go-to manual is a Haynes manual, but there are others (Chilton, etc.). You may be able to find the actual manufacturer service manual (what the service technicians reference) if you know where to look.

comment When looking at a transmission, how can I know if there is a LSD?
Are you asking in terms of knowing whether it may have been modified? LSDs (limited slip differentials, for those wondering) were offered by Dodge through Mopar as an aftermarket accessory, but they were not originally installed on any SRT-4s in that year (that I know of).

comment How do you remove or even get to the car battery on a 2012 Honda Odyssey?
@Iszi: There is indeed an auxiliary negative (ground) terminal lug nut in the engine chassis for this purpose.

Do you have an owner's manual? I'd check there first.
