comment Why does car rumble/shake with light pressure on accelerator?
@blankip, that would be my suggestion then for the next step. It's so much easier for the mechanic to understand if you can make it happen while they watch and listen.

Does it make enough sound that you could record it with your phone? I've also had good luck taking the mechanic for a ride with me.

@GetFree, I think you need to read the MSDS a little more closely.

@GetFree, check the wikipedia entry on sealed lead acid batteries. That valve for gas blow-off? That's where the hydrogen comes out. There's nothing to be done there, that's just how chemistry works.

I stand corrected (based on Paul's answer below). "How often" == "Basically never."

Reminder: unidirectional tires will say "This side out" or some equivalent on the sidewall.

comment Replacement Interval for Carbon or Charcoal Canister
Please add more specificity to your question (e.g., make, model, year). "Most vehicles" is a little too broad.

comment Why aren't my “street performance” pads performing well on the street?
@MatthewHaugen, if that's the case, I wouldn't expect these pads to be this scary. If they were race-specific, sure, get them hot before they will bite. However, you seem to be experiencing a whole new level of terror. That's not right.

comment After car runs with temp normal it drops to tempature reading cold
Welcome to the site. Could you provide a little more information? For example, are you warming up with the car sitting still and then the engine cools off when driving?

Could you tell us which specific pads you purchased? I'm worried that your concerns about operating temperature might be spot on.
