Bad gas tank relief valve?

So my Oldsmobile (99 Alero) is acting up again. It's supposed to sit in the garage for the summer, but it wreaks of gas. There are no spots on the floor and no visible leaks anywhere. The smell...

Hi again!

So who's still lurking around here? I've been busy with life and let's be honest, an online car forum isn't too high up on most people's priority lists. I see a few familiar names posting...

They just spent 6 figures to fix these small floods they used to have at the end of the track. This sucks.

Honestly...I think you're dreaming. However I'd like nothing more than for you to prove me wrong.

Past that, don't be so quick to think the Wankel rotaries are super-lightweight. With all the...

Look like scuffs to me too. You probably won't be able to just wash them off. A claybar should do the trick. Some autoparts stores carry them (a kit with the spray and a bar is about $10-$20) or...

I believe the Superbirds and Daytonas were all technically "1969 and a half" instead of 1969 or 1970 model years. I'm guessing to sneak them into NASCAR for that season.

FYI, Buy.com is running a promo where you get a free godaddy domain with any purchase.

Everything has been done before. It's depressing doing patent searches.

My bike rack project: need your input!

It's an improvement upon an existing product: the bike rack. This would be an add-on to the standard bike rack, aiding people who are short/weak and have trouble lifting a bike onto their roof. The...

Haha, solo for now. I know what my car does in the drags, its a fun day, but not much competition-wise unless you're running 13.3s. I run them all day, so if you're running high 12s or 13.5s or...

Nice. Gotta love SCCA SOLO.

A 95 S-10 with almost 200K on it is probably not worth bringing to a shop to have a headgasket replaced. You can buy gasket sealant at about any autoparts store for a few bucks. Not a permanent...
