comment Blazer overheating in cold temperatures
@mac, I might not have been clear enough in the answer, the "or there might also be a problem with the temperature sensor" is in reference to just the rapid change in temperature not the overheating issue. I will clarify.

@Paulster2, I agree that the radiator cap replacement is really just a general maintenance item to be replaced. I will edit the answer.

Nope, that reservoir should also be filled to the points marked on the side of it.

Is what possible? I understand there is a jack installed on a radio. What is the question?

comment What can cause an oil leak which spill everywhere in the car (Toyota) including the top inside of the hood?
Do you know the year and what engine (or at least the trim/submodel) of the car?

comment muffler positioning, and x-flow for specific sound
-1 While the content of this is accurate, it does not solve the question at hand. Instead answers that make points like this should be summarized into a small comment on the question.

comment In Columbus, Ohio. 28 degrees out for last 9 hrs. Only water in radiator.Can I start and drive safely?
Yes, follow local guidelines when disposing of any fluids. @Bob, many places in the south actually do allow anitfreeze down the drain as long as it is flushed with extra water.

comment New Rotor making noise after installation
It was a premium rotor (black hat tops), it is possible it could have been sitting for a while, but I think unlikely.

comment What could cause a sudden pop-up (explosion/blow off) noise inside the car while driving?
@Pupil the hissing is most likely a symptom that your Freon is low in your A/C system, which would explain why it would not be blowing cold.

comment HomeLink not opening garage door in the mornings
I like the wild guess, but since this vehicle is 2 months old I would be surprised if it is the battery, plus the car is running so there should be plenty of power generated by the alternator.

Is the noise coming from the compressor? Or the tensioner?

comment 2000 Neon Suspension - Monroe Parts Life Expenctancy
Completely agree with Brian. I think another marketed advantage is faster repair time with the full assembly. This is good for the shop but can also be good for the customer if it reduces the labor charges.

comment Do newer cars actually monitor the quality of oil?
Also the GM Epsilon I platform, as my sister's Saab 9-3 has this feature.

comment Check engine light on for O2 sensor (Oxygen) but O2 sensor has been replaced
Is there more than one O2 sensor, have you replaced the correct one? Does the code indicate that the O2 sensor is giving invalid readings or poor readings? It could be another part that is not working correctly and the O2 sensor is detecting it.

I answered your OBDII question, but the last paragraph about the Saturn seems out of place, is this another question?

comment Which provides better engine flushing, traditional flushing oil or adding a flush additive to old oil?
It seems strange that the oil is thick and gloopy if you are frequently topping it off because it is being burnt up.
