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.

What sort of alignment place did you take the car to? Unfortunately alignment shops aren't created equal...

comment HVAC is not blowing. Is it most likely the blower motor?
You want to set it to something that covers at least 15V DC, but yes, that's the principle. One of the connectors is likely to be the ground connector so you might have to identify that first by cross-checking the various connectors (if you have more than two) and then measure the other connectors against ground while you move/turn the fan switchs.

comment Do I have an oil leak if I have to add oil?
It really depends on the oil that's being put into the engine - you can't really make the definitive statement that the oil needs to be changed more often. A lot of vehicles these days (and even 10 years ago) have oil change intervals in the 7.5k-10k mile ranges if you use the appropriate oil. That of course makes checking the oil level even more important.

comment How to do a 2005 v6 Avalon Oil Pan Removal (Australian Model)
Is your mechanic talking about the 'strainer' on the oil pickup in the sump? If that's clogged/blocked you might have other issues with deposits in the oil that cause low oil pressure...
