comment Easiest and the chepest way to touch up missing paint patches on 2000 Chevy Cavalier
Are those white edges loose paint? Can you lift them with your fingernail? Those definitely don't look like scratches. Was you car parked under anything that leaks solvents?

comment Most reliable used off-road with good fuel economy (for travelling expeditions)
Welcome to the site. Unfortunately, you've asked a question that is both shopping and opinion-based. As such, it's not a good fit (on the Q&A side)[mechanics.stackexchange.com/tour]. However, we welcome this sort of discussion (in the chat room)[chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/340/…, where there is no expectation of the One True Answer.

comment My brake fluid all left on short notice. What gives?
I'd mark that "You should not drive" in bold - this kind of problem is a killer.

comment Subaru Impreza 1999 - no power on acceleration
Also, what transmission? Is this a sudden problem? Did the car work fine and then cease accelerating? Or has it become worse and worse?

comment GSX-R front suspension technology timeline
It sounds like you've taken the lead to collect some of that information already. Maybe you should write it up yourself as a wiki article. You're right that it would probably serve as a resource for others.

comment What is causing this terrible grinding/groaning noise when I come to a slow stop sometimes? (but not always!)
Welcome to the site. This area is for answering the OP's question. If you have a solution to the problem, this is the appropriate place. If you'd like to start an open-ended discussion, the chat is a better place to do it.

Are you looking for information that can't be found on the [wikipedia page]9http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_GSX-R_series)?

comment How to remove droplets of paint on my car?
You could also add very soft tools (used with great care) to the mix. If they're coming off with a fingernail, a clay bar on its own probably won't do it. I have non-marring tools that I use in my other life that could be used to carefully work them loose. You might also want to use cleaner wax for its very mild abrasive effect.

comment Car Battery Dying Overnight - Disconnected
You should also bring the bad battery with you as they might have a core charge rebate (bring dead battery and get a discount). They'll definitely recycle bad battery for you.
