Coolant or windshield cleaner will have distinctive colors and smells: you might want to suggest those as well.

comment Should I replace the Timing belt in 2004 Kia
Paul, you should be aware that this isn't a standard open-ended discussion forum. Also, while you are correct that 60K miles is the recommended distance for replacement, there is also a recommended replacement interval of 48 months.

comment Differences and Recommendation between Steel and Alloy Wheels for Winter?
@GabrielMongeon, you're not wrong: if I had infinite cashflow, I could make the initial investment and then amortize the cost over time. However, I chose to have children instead. ;-)

comment Differences and Recommendation between Steel and Alloy Wheels for Winter?
You're missing one key point: are you implying that there are two sets of wheels available? One for summer, one for winter? If so, do you have your winter tires on your steel wheels?

Any indication on whether the car's having trouble charging the battery? Is the alternator in good shape?

comment How to fix a door scratch?
Have you tried washing the car and trying some "cleaner wax" on those spots? That's a combination of wax and polish that, with a little TLC might take some of those spots right off. That might reveal where you've actually reached primer / metal vs. left some stone dust in the paint.

We're talking about those four little gouges? Are they all the way to the metal? Or did you only get down to the primer?

comment 2007 MKZ Engine Won't Turn
I just a similar situation with my (totally different) car. Once I had the car started, I went straight to the store to get a new battery. It's just not worth wasting your time: if you can't remember when you bought this battery, it's probably out of warranty so it's worthy of replacement.

comment Battery dies over weekend
I agree with Nick - this sounds like a battery that's past its prime == out of warranty (they pick those warranty periods for a reason!).

comment Honda S2000 with cold air intake; rain driving
@SamWhited, you're welcome - CAIs are fun. I had one on the Integra which badly needed the smoother airflow. I installed the bypass valve very early on and never had a problem myself. The WRX, on the other hand, has never asked me for a CAI so I haven't bothered to spend the money.
