Yes you can no problem. Just have to say you bought some groceries.

The car odometer is reacting slower than the car's actual speed. It happened out of nowhere as I was leaving school and noticed it stayed at 0 when I was travelling at around 10-15km/h. The problem also exists when I'm slowing down (speed is displayed faster than I am travelling).

Anyone have an idea of what happened? Is it just an internal issue that I probably have to bring it in to get fixed?

Preserved/prepared meat is OK.

Which reminds me, Kirkland Teriyaki steak strips are the best. I go to Bellingham just for that. It's that good, and not available up in Canada.

Hey guys, looking @ this car probably with in the next few weeks, noticed that it's clean but it's going for $4000, about 1K below KBB value...It's also sold at a Chrysler dealership
Spoilered link to VIN and VIN Report
Spoiler!


Just curious on the multiple Canadian renewals and car being silent for 7 years.

Why not bring it to BCAA or your local mechanic for an inspection?

Anyone know a mechanic for commercial dishwashers? My Hobart dishwasher is making a loud grinding noise, anyone know how to fix? Nothing is stuck or clogged. I already washed 2 cycles before hand without turning it off and on the third I got the grinding noise.

So for some reason my Adobe keeps on crashing, I uninstalled it and it's still doing the same thing. It's driving me crazy cash I can't watch any videos and have no clue what the issue could be. Any ideas what I can do to fix it?

So, I was at ICBC today.

Speaking to the rep one spot over, there was a near deaf 90+ year old C-Lai having the consequences of her excessive speeding ticket explained. I feel safe

Was going to bleed my brakes today, but I also need to replace a solid brake line over top of the rear different. It goes from the rear passenger side caliper to a 3 way connector. Which connect the driver side rear caliper and the main solid line from the front of the truck.

Does the whole system need to be drained in order to replace the line. Then completely refill the master cylinder and fill the lines?

Just remove the line and keep the cap on the res. only a bit will leak out. Then just bleed as normal till no bubbles are left when the new line is in. If you drain the system it will take FOREVER to bleed it properly.

I would help you in a heartbeat if I could, but I am a Mac power user, and the Wintel realm is Greek to me.

Oh, didn't know that if I leave the cap on the MC it will hold suction in the lines. Ok thanks doing it right now.
