comment Why use a car battery charger?
@cnst, I am unclear about what you are objecting to. Are you saying that a car that sits unused all winter shouldn't expect to have a dead battery come summertime? Or you conflating a battery charger with a battery conditioner?

comment Difference between “dumping the clutch” and N->D in an auto?
@Paulster2, I tend to agree but you have to read the whole body of text. It wouldn't hurt to rewrite this question as something like "what damage can flipping from neutral to drive do to an automatic transmission?" That would make it a little more clear that this really is a mechanical question.

Stories like this make me furious. Treating women like oblivious morons damages our hobby, passion and our whole gender. Please let your wife know that she is welcome to visit the site as well. We will happily answer any automotive question she has like the nerds that we are.

While my hunch is similar to yours, could you think of a method that an unscrupulous person could use to break a valve cover in half using only 10-15 minutes in the shop? The only one that comes to my mind can't be done subtly.

comment Can I drive my 2013 Toyota Camry a few miles after Low Tire Pressure light comes on?
In a modern tire, a visibly low tire is dangerously low. I wouldn't drive on that much further than around the block.
