Then I have to do the same thing backing out. It feels like this can be bad for my truck. I really wish they would park somewhere else but they refuse to so I don’t know what to do if it’s not necessarily bad for my truck

I just decided to sell it last minute bc I don t use it and I can use the cash. Well he s making me do everything (which I don t mind) but he plans on pocketing it all and maybe giving me some of it. Is this wrong? What do I say to him? He knows I m broke and struggling and yet still plans on taking it.

    Weight of roller that packed it down.
    Give it a day or two and make a point of not parking in exactly the same spot for a few weeks until it is firm all over.

    So I was pulling out of the mall parking lot and there was this car to my right which was very improperly parked, pretty much hugging my car and angled. My car is a big bodied sedan and these spots were narrow plus there was another large sedan to my left. I think you know where this is going...as I pulled out I could literately not avoid hitting the car on my right. I cringed as I heard the sounds of metal scraping against metal and looked around to make sure nobody was looking. Since nobody was around, I got out of my car to inspect the damage after I had pulled completely out of the spot. NO damage on either car. My car is black and the car I sideswiped was silver. No paint transfer or any dings/scratches which was surprising considering the sounds I heard as I pulled out. Since there was no damage, I did not leave a note or go off looking for the owner. I just left the lot. Is this acceptable? I mean there was no damage so I don't see the big deal but if I was to get caught leaving the scene, could I have gotten in trouble? What would you've done in this situation? Thanks for answering!!

    A dishonest mechanic will replaced the fuel tank and fuel pump, fuel lines and injectors and much, much, much higher cost.

    Diesel is more like a lubricant while gasoline is more like a solvent. I've known a couple of people who pumped diesel and cleared the problem by simply doing the first paragraph above.

    Pumping gas into a diesel engine, however, is a very different problem that can damage the engine. fuel pump and fuel injectors.

    Best answer: The only time that's an issue is if you owe more on the car than it is worth in trade. You have two options in that situations:

    1. Put your present car up for sale yourself for however much you owe on it and hope someone is willing to pay that much for it.

    2. Keep driving the car you have until you have it paid down enough that you don't owe more on it than it's worth.

    UPDATE:

    Actually, $8,000 is a lot if your present car isn't worth $8,000 as a trade-in. If you look up its Kelly Blue Book trade-in value and it shows the car is worth, say, $6,000 as a trade-in, you're upside down by $2,000, meaning you owe $2,000 more than the car is worth as a trade-in, which is more than a dealer is able to wrap into the loan for the car you want to buy because a finance company will only allow a dealer to finance up to the average retail price of the car you want to buy, not more.

    Some less reputable car dealers will sometimes work deals where they take a car that on paper because of its year and its odometer reading looks like it's worth a lot more than it's actually worth in order to roll in negative equity in your current car loan into a new car loan. But that never works out for the buyer because you always end up buying a car with a mountain of problems for a lot more than it's actually worth, which then you're stuck with for a very long time until you actually do pay it down to what it's actually worth.

    For example, a car dealer may sell you a car that because of its year and mileage looks like it should have an average retail price of $10,000. In reality, the previous owner drove the hell out of it, smoked in it, trashed the interior, and then wrecked it, which the dealership then fixed for as cheaply and poorly as possible so that even now you can tell it's all bondo and the body panels don't meet up right and within even a year or two the paint is going to start peeling--a car that they bought at auction for only $3,500 and in actuality is worth at most $6,000 retail. One of these disreputable dealerships will be very glad to sell you that car for $10,000 and pay the $2,000 you're upside down in your current loan. That's because they'll still make $2,000 more than the car is worth retail and will make thousands more than even that profit. The problem is, you can't sell that car as a private party for retail. The minute you drive that car off their lot, the most you'll be able to sell that car for will be about $4,000 or $5,000. When all that is actually wrong with that car starts going wrong almost immediately, you're going to be stuck and totally screwed because you're never going to not be upside down in that car. That car is going to be worthless, scrap, long before you ever pay it off.
