I've been programming since my early teens and like so many of us, I started Basic on the usual home computers like Atari 800XL, ZX Spectrum etc. "Turned pro" about 20 years ago.

I've been mostly doing C++ during this time, writing anything from device drivers for various operating systems to trading systems for banks.

comment Tyre equivalency
I'm with Brian on this, RS2s are pretty cheap for this sort of tire and for a car that needs/wants high performance, you don't want to replace them with cheaper rubber from NeverGrip Co.

comment Leaking axle bearings
Cheap seals, installed slightly off/pinched or overheating because the bearing didn't get enough lubrication would come to mind.

That's usually the case if you get the dreaded clicking sound...

comment Body Paint Scratch Repair
Either that or grab said paint code and check if any of the local auto parts stores or paint suppliers are able to provide you with a touch up bottle. Just keep in mind that it's pretty much impossible to get an invisible repair with touch-up paint, especially if the paint is metallic or mica.

comment What to do about snapped out retaining pins?
I would not drive the car like that - worst case if the right parts shift or go pop, you'll end up with jammed brakes. BTW, you realise that the pins are fitted through the back plate from under the vehicle and not being pushed through the hole from the wheel side?

Another vote for a factory manual, you often can find them on ebay, too.

comment 2001 honda civic failing to start when hot
If the check engine light is coming on, get someone with a code reader to read the fault code and tell you what the code means.

comment What is this component of this RV's engine?
Agree with the "it's a smog pump" assessment. The belt was probably removed because these things have a habit of seizing over time and disabling them tends to be a little cheaper than replacing them...

comment Cleaning fuel injectors?
Sounds to me like their bottom like would run better then :). If you want to try their theory, get a bottle of injection cleaner and pour it into the tank to see if it does make a difference.
