comment Uneven idle when my '93 Honda Accord's engine is cold
I had something that is somewhat the same. My cold air intake sensor went bad on my car and (this would happen no matter the temp) my car would rev from 800 to 2000. A good mechanic should be able to hook your car up to a 'real' computer, a computer that actually shows all the parameters of the car (cfm air intake, engine timing, fuel usage, etc...), not just if a code is being thrown.

comment How to carry a full-sized spare?
@kojiro another option would be to build a small box out of wood or thin metal that will hold the tire in place in the trunk. You could also carpet it to match the interior. If it can't be perfect, at least you can look good doing it :-)

comment How to carry a full-sized spare?
@kojiro I would recommend an alternative. Keep the full size spare at home and the donut in the car with a can of fix-a-flat. Either the donut or fix-a-flat will get you to a mechanic/home and you don't have to worry about your trunk space. But if you are going off-road or somewhere there is a high likelihood of getting a flat, throw the full size in the trunk.

comment Cost of turning off airbag light on '96 Nissan Maxima
@JustinC I believe that dealerships are rarely cheap and often oversell what you need done, BUT they are the final authority on how their cars work. There are some things that break on a car that I would only take to the dealership, this being one of them. When your safety is concerned and the air bag being a vital component of your safety system, I would take it to the experts, at least for a second opinion.

comment Best Ways to Pass Emissions?
I just recently moved into a city that requires emissions checks and found that not every place that does the checks is as 'detail-oriented' as other places. So one thing to think about is to take the car to someone who won't grill you on the little things.

comment Turn signal clicks randomly.
I had only part of your problem. Intermittent clicks when not using the turn signal in my 2006 VW Golf; it came from tiny metal shavings were suspended in the grease that is used in the turn signal and it will occasionally conduct just enough electricity to trigger the turn clicker without actually sending enough electricity to turn on the signal lights.
