comment Is high octane fuel a requirement for high-compression engines?
@Ukko I agree that the ratio reported is generally not the boosted ratio, I believe the ratio will change when under boost since the amount of air in the cylinder will be greater before compression, hence higher compression ratio. I think :-)

comment Least wear-and-tear, most fuel efficient method of coasting in a manual transmission car?
@yhw42 my understanding is also that it is safer to coast with the transmission engaged. If the engine dies for some reason while coasting and the transmission is NOT engaged then you lose the hydraulic braking power but if it is engaged then even if the car were to die, the momentum keeps the engine turning providing the power for the hydraulics

comment Options for fixing Nissan Quest rear motorized hatch?
You might be able to get the motor rebuilt. It alls depends on how the original motor was built and if it is capable of being rebuilt.

comment Engine revs high 5th gear manual transmission
@BrianMHunt I don't know whether you are a fix-it-yourself type of person, but if you are, I would recommend NOT replacing a clutch yourself. It is a multiday project, you'll want to rip your hair out by the end and you may want to smack you girlfriend's father (who is helping you change it) :-) Oh and also, make sure you get the flywheel turned.

comment Ford Probe '94 heater problem
@S_Niles I grew up with the understanding that you should flush your coolant system every fall, so I guess even in heavy deposit water systems you wouldn't really have to worry about mineral buildup.

comment how to install cruise control (Tempomat) in an Mercedes-Benz 308D from 1992?
someone's already gotten to the tags for you, but with tempomat since it appears to be the German work for cruise-control I created a tag synonym and so whenever tempomat is used, it will be tied to cruise-control

comment Ford Probe '94 heater problem
I've never heard anything about using distilled water in a radiator. The only benefit I could see from using distilled water vs tap water would be that it won't conduct electricity which shouldn't be a concern anyway.

comment Are used tires valuable?
@PaulBelardi I would hazard a guess to say that unless your winter tires are fabulously expensive, then it won't be worth your time and effort to swap out the tires
