comment Prius burns off oil very fast. Is this normal?
@NateEldredge While it's a poorly worded answer, it does answer the question asked. His Prius burns 2 quarts of oil every 5000 miles.

comment How to remove a tailgate strut that do not have a c-clip
@dmc I just use a pry bar you can twist them a little, sometimes that help. Never had to do anything else. Pry between the strut and the nut so you don't risk damaging the body work.

comment Weed eater doesn't cut weeds anymore
I realize the question could have be worded better, and I have cleaned it up some. Not sure it was worth 3 downvotes without comment on why. When new users are guided on what the community expects it makes the site better for everyone. Also it was flagged as being off topic, and while it might be able to be posted on Home Improvement this question is on topic here. Please see the help center"...even in applications other than automotive so long as the question is related to engine or engine accessories."

comment What is the normal battery draw for a 2009 Honda Fit?
I think the OP is talking about when the vehicle is off, and nothing being used. I could be wrong but when most people talk about battery draw they are talking about a parasitic load. With the exception of short term overloads if the electrical system is working correctly on an automobile you don't draw any power from the battery when the engine is running.

comment 91 GMC accelerating problems
Can you feel it change gears? If so what gear fails? Using moderate throttle from a stop feel for the transmission shift. You should feel it shift and the RPM drop with each shift. Do that and tell me which gear it stops pulling in.

comment 91 GMC accelerating problems
@Paulster2 I added the 4L80e (Electronic version of TH-400 +overdrive) tag, based on the OP stating that the transmission shop replaced solinoids and GM didn't (to my knowledge) put a 4L60e (electronic version of 700R4) in 3500 with dual rear wheels

Not sure why your answers was down-voted, seems like it's helpful to me. While Dobey's answer could answer every question on the site but wouldn't be very helpful
