    I just got into a minor accident. I was slowing down because the car that was in front of me was slowing down because there was potholes and while I was slowing down, and the car behind me hit my vehicle and dented my rear bumper. Luckily no one was injured. And I called the police to report the incident. Police came and gave us the police report number. Then I called my insurance company and filed a claim. Then we went our ways, After that day I got a call from the guy's insurance company and they said they will take care of it and will fix the bumper. I said ok cool. Insurance company gave me an address which is a automotive collision repair shop. Also they will provide rental car at their expense. After getting the call I called my insurance and told them all about it. They said okay and since its his fault they are supposed to take care of the damage. Also told me to let them know if there is any problem. So my concern is : I bought my NISSAN ROGUE SV 2015 (USED) (30K miles) on MAY 2017. Still has Nissan manufacturer's warranty. So do I have to fix the bumper from certified Nissan repair shop or I can get the repair done from any shop? is it going to void my Nissan warranty? Thank you for taking the time to read it.

  • Where can I find good car tires and is it bad to buy cheap?

    I think it's about time I get new tires (it has been 6 years) and I need help finding the right ones. I do not have much money getting out of college so I do not want to spend too much, but I wonder if buying cheap is bad. I have never done this before.

  • Hello expert mechanics, will it hurt my car engine if I change oil early than my manufacturer recommendation of every 10k mile?

    i do car scheduled maintainance every 5 k mile with my mechanic. the oil change is included for a price of 60 bucks including overall maintenance such as tire rotation. So should i just let them change anyway?

    I'm 17 and I am getting my permit next week. I have looked nearby me and found several cars that fit within my price range but I am unsure which one I should get. They are all $1000 and under. Some of them have cosmetic issues but they don't have anything mechanically wrong listed about them. I don't need anything fancy, just something to learn in and get used to driving with. The choices are: 2000 Hyundai Elantra with 168k miles, 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis with 170k miles, 2004 Dodge Neon with 198k miles, 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 200k miles, 2001 Nissan Maxima with 184k miles, 2003 Hyundai Sonata with 180k miles, and a 2002 Ford Explorer with 200k miles. Are any of these good deals or should I keep looking? Any suggestions for a teen first car? Thanks for your help!

  • Oil in 3 of 4 spark plugs?

    Got a little 4-cylinder sports car. When changing the spark plugs, 3 of 4 were virtually swimming in a lot of oil. I presume that this is the rings that are bad. A cost estimate online seems to range from $900 to $1,800 depending on the type of car. So basically...how long will a motor last if you wing this? I... show more

A cost estimate online seems to range from $900 to $1,800 depending on the type of car. So basically...how long will a motor last if you wing this? I can change the spark plugs more often, because they aren't very expensive and it is like $20-$25 for 4. Will that help extend life in general? Granted, this is an old car. Got it when it had 60,000 miles and it has about 170,000 now. It is a 2001, so it has a bit of life left in it (everything else is in pretty good shape and a lot of parts have been replaced over time), but just wondering how this will affect it. How often should I change the plugs with this problem? When I changed them, I gripped a paper towel with some long handle needle nose pliers and stuck it down in there to soak up as much of the oil as possible before I put the new plug in. I know that it will just get back on it again at some point, but just wondering how long a motor will last in general with this issue happening.

  • Which is the cheapest car to own?

    Honda Civic, Kia forte or Mazda 3. I've also heard that wile BMW's have high sticker price and costly parts they don't need repairs as often and warranty's are longer than most cars.

  • While changing timing chain, I noticed water pump makes a slight squeak when turned. Does it need replacing?. Now would be the time!?

    Best answer: I'd replace it and flush the cooling system while you're at it. Sounds like the water pump seal is hardened. It may start to leak soon.
