comment breaking in (running in) a very small engine
Keep in mind that break-in at one position gives you less drive-ability, but sounds like you'll be pegged the whole time anyways. Try to roll on and off the throttle and let the engine decelerate, but use high rpms if that's what it wants. You aren't going to get 100K mi. out of it anyways :)

comment Greater warranty or lower miles?
You'll never paint it, let's be real. I believe that the warranty is a better value, but if you're like me and this car will be an extension of self, get the one you like more...

comment Car starts fine cold or warm, but has trouble inbetween
I agree with the approach, but I think you can eliminate the check valve. The engine would leak more fuel after cooling than it would after a brief stop. This could also be applied to the injectors, but somewhat not.

comment 2004 Chevy Malibu jerks when deceleration is followed by acceleration between 25-40 mph
Does your car have a torque lockout? If so your car could be shifting in odd ways and the result is jerky shifts.

comment shifting stops when critically low on gas
Limiting the user to one gear when it is critical they efficiently reach a gas station seems like a liability...

comment 1997 turbo Diesel Toyota Hilux Gear Selection Problem
I agree, just ramp on and off the accelerator while moving the shifter (to take the pressure off the gears).

comment How do I find the correct pins in a CAN-BUS connector?
mac - Thanks, I'll give them a shot.Nick - Yeah, I figure it's going to be harder than it should be. I was hoping to just bust out an O-scope and stumble upon the right one.
