comment Is it worth having a fire extinguisher in the car?
For context, it would help if you would share the specific vehicle and situation that you're thinking of. For example, I don't bother with an extinguisher driving my car around town. If I were driving a Miura way out in the countryside, I'd definitely have one due to the high risk of it suddenly bursting into flames far from any assistance.

Good point about the unsecured fire extinguisher. However, it's worth making the point that you can properly secure the extinguisher and have it in the vehicle without additional risk.

comment ENGINE FAIL TO START
Welcome to the site. Would you edit this post a bit please? I'm having trouble following the actual sequence of events. For example, was the battery dead when originally restarted? Is the car currently failing to start with a bad battery? This sounds a bit like what my car does when put into diagnostic mode but it's hard for me to tell.

comment Brakes go to the floor
Just a reminder: if a long comment chain helps with the answer, it's a good idea to edit the original text to take advantage of the result of that dialog. It makes things a little easier for the next person to have the exact same problem.

comment Why does a diesel sound like that?
Your note five is confusing. Did you mean to say "gasoline engines" instead of effectively saying that X > X?

Could you be more specific about why you're asking? What's the specific problem that you're trying to solve? Or are you just curious?
