comment what can be the reason my old diesel Mercedes won't start?
If you can run the old fuel out of it, it makes sense that it should help. Good luck! :)

comment Downshifting an automatic
The excessive fuel consumption was news to me as well. On my motorcycle, I discovered that it ran more efficiently at higher RPM's. Every engine has a different optimum range, so on the bike, "engine braking" is a bit more normal than it would be in my car.

Will, do you have some sort of reference on this you can include to help dispel doubt? Thank you.

comment 1994 Ford Escort won't start
Does this car have aluminum heads? I've heard aluminum can warp easily under hot conditions.

comment How do I safely siphon gas from a tank?
@MarkJohnson - We may have done that too. That's what the forums recommended in order to keep from hurting the engine.

comment Where'd my heat go?
Is your radiator low? A low coolant level could reduce the amount of hot coolant that enters the heater core. You might want to consider listing what you've checked so far, what kind of vehicle you have, etc., and if you've checked nothing, list that too. :)
