comment 2001 Subaru Legacy L Wagon - Gas smell and light shaking
@JoshCaswell, from reading the cited question and answer, I don't think the problem or solution is the same. If nothing else, the other problem required replacing a coil vs. the rubber hose discussed here.

comment 2001 Subaru Legacy L Wagon - Gas smell and light shaking
When you smell the gas smell, find a safe place to pull over, get out and see if you can locate the smell under the hood. I've had really good luck smelling out leaking fluids in the past (especially for something pungent like fuel). NOTE: if you're investigating a running engine, make certain that none of your outfit is loose. You don't want your scarf to end up in your serpentine belt....

comment 2005 Chrysler PT Cruiser - Check Engine Light is on and has started regularly sputtering
Could you provide more words about your problem? Right now, it's difficult for us to provide much of substance other than what those codes are. For example, try to describe "sputtering" and how "regularly" does it happen?

comment Why (almost)all dirt bikes have single cylinder engine?
Subarus do not have simultaneous ignition on any cylinders. You can easily Google for the correct order.

comment 2011 Chevrolet Equinox: Heater blows cold air when set to defrost mode
Are you trying to say that window glass is porous? It's not. Also, the only way to get water to show up in an airtight container is through condensation. That would assume that you trapped humid air (in the desert?) and managed to get condensation to happen. Perhaps right after the night time temperature drop but it would evaporate quickly in the day. You haven't invented a water factory.

I was just telling the "they used to be tall WRXes" story, bemoaning how silly Foresters have become.

comment Is a slight steering wheel vibration normal in a 2012 Civic when cold?
Are you describing a vibration when sitting at a stop? Or are you noticing vibration while driving? Straight line? Is there a difference between right turns and left turns? At what speeds?

comment Overheating of the Honda City 2007
Is the car overheating? That's what I would think that this indicator was trying to tell you. For a more detailed diagnosis, you'll have to provide more details about your situation.

comment Oil change with front wheels on ramps?
@WarrenHudson, "theory" is also not a good choice of words. That implies that you have a hypothesis supported by a preponderance of evidence.

How old is your battery? Are you having any other problems? Headlights dimming at a stop, for instance?

comment Engine braking vs. braking in neutral on slippery & normal conditions
@user2153235, this question is receiving "close as unclear what you're asking" votes. You might want to review the tour to get some specific guidance. For example, one thing that's missing here is a specific question that can be answered succinctly.
