• Is it bad to smoke a cigarette when filling up with gas?

    My wife is always saying I shouldn’t do it. She also got mad at me today because my car was running and I slammed the door while smoking and filling up. She was livid and I didn’t understand why.

    2012 Mazda3. 54,319 miles. Last oil change 3/30/18 with 49,856. So 4463 miles. Bham,AL, stop & go driving. Garage Kept. I have been looking for a deal from pep boys but they just don't seem to have any deals the last few months. I mean under 20. I do not have the equipment to change my own and I hate grease. My inclination is to wait for a July 4th oil change deal and do it then and if not, the next week even at $25. I have not checked firestones price for 2 reasons. While its probably closer to my house, its kind of night & day difference as far as area. The firestone is kind of a war zone. The pep boys is fine. Plus, I pay with pep boys gift cards which gives me a 20 per cent discount. (i get them via Discover with cashback, a 25 card is 20) Maybe I should call & ask firestone and try to get pep boys to match it?

  • Do any rental car companies allow someone with a learners permit to drive if a parent is riding with them?

    I have started working a summer job with a catering company and got my first paycheck yesterday. Since I have a learners permit but cannot practice driving right now since mom is driving her boyfriends truck which has a stick shift, I asked mom about me helping to pay for a rental car for a few weeks so I can get some much needed practice driving. Mom says that there are no rental car companies that would allow 17 year old with a learners permit to drive under any circumstances, so there is no way I could practice driving on one if she did rent one. She doesn't see anything wrong with my sister and I being passengers in the truck. Wondering if there are any rental car companies that would allow me to drive the rental car if mom is riding in the front seat with me. Will probably offer to split the price of renting a car for a week or two if so as I really need to get some practice driving and the truck is a tight fit for my mom, sister, and I. Would appreciate any information on rental car companies that would let me drive so I can try talk mom into us renting a car. I can try to get my license in September and am really worried about not getting to practice driving to so long.

  • How to check break pads without talking the wheels out?

    I changed the original front break pads at 80k miles. It's 122k miles now. However, I start hearing scquizing sound. They are too soon to be worn out. I hope I can check them without taking the tires out. Thanks

  • Can I get a car loan by myself with $9000 down payment but bad credit?

    I’m 19 and I want to finance a $30,000 car but I have a debt of $1700 from a hospital that I have still yet to pay off. Other than that I have no other credit that can really prove that I can make on time payments.

    I’m 19 and I want to finance a $30,000 car but I have a debt of $1700 from a hospital that I have still yet to pay off. Other than that I have no other credit that can really prove that I can make on time payments. But I do have $9000 that I can put up towards the car and two part time jobs to make those payments. Do you think the car dealership will still give me a loan? I’d like to do this now because it’s already summer time and a car like this would be best driven during the summer. I probably won’t mind the high interest rate either. But I definitely need this car since it’s my dream car that I have been saving up for. I’m also a hard worker so I’m certain that I can make these monthly payments including the insurance.

  • Can I teach myself how to drive?

    I’m 22 and I have a decent amount of money to buy a car. I have tried driving a few times. I don’t want to get driving instructions. If I have a licensed driver in the car and I just practice, is that good enough?

    Okay so a few months ago my father bought me a car as an early graduation gift. The car was registered in Texas (where he lives) and I then drove it to Georgia (where I live).

    Okay so a few months ago my father bought me a car as an early graduation gift. The car was registered in Texas (where he lives) and I then drove it to Georgia (where I live). I didn't see it as much of a problem until recently when a cop pulled me over for an unrelated issue and he mentioned to me that I needed to get my car registered in Georgia otherwise I would eventually start getting pulled over frequently for having out of state tags. Now keep in mind i'm no expert on this stuff so correct me if i'm wrong but as far as I know the only person who can get my car registered in Georgia is the owner (my father) and to do that he'd have to live here in Georgia. Please if there is any way for me to get around this so I can register the car in Georgia tell me because if i can help it i'd rather not get pulled over by law enforcement lol Also the car is being financed so I don't think he can transfer over the title to me

    I was driving today and was about to make a lane change. I didn't see any car just the ones behind me in my lane. I didn't see any cars in the other lane. Then this car appeared I honestly don't know where it came from but my car swerved into that lane. I didn't hit the car just to be clear. There wasn't an accident or anything I was stupid and didn't see any car. I know it was my fault for not seeing. I saw the car turn its hazards on but then it kept driving. I assumed everything was okay since I didn't hit him. I saw him go behind me and I think he was talking on the phone to the police or recording my plate number. I know this is a stupid question but I was wondering what this will affect? It's completely my fault for missing the car but what kind of trouble will I be in? I'm a learners and I had someone beside me.
