They seem to be keeping fairly quiet on this so far.

Yet another tragic situation that you hope you never find yourself in.

General Car Chat / oil level hot or cold?
« on: 21 April 2015, 13:18:45 »
Years ago I never particularly bothered if the oil was hot, worm or cold when I checked it ... just made sure the engine had been stopped a little while before dipping it. So why do I now get told that my Merc & Smart needs their oil levels checking when hot? My Merc has been telling me at various time to check the oil level when I next fuel and the level can be anything from the bottom of the dip stick to the top & various in between. Does warm/hot oil these days really expand by such a notable amount?  :-\

General Discussion Area / whatsapp video
« on: 30 March 2015, 23:42:41 »
My daughter sent me a video this morning via Whatsapp to show me the noise her car sometimes makes. It only does it after a lay up of a few days but only lasts a minute or so at the most. It's sounds like a dry bearing somewhere ...... but obviously without the car in front of me to look at I can only guess.
I've no idea how to go about loading it from my phone to get it to here via a link for your opinions

General Discussion Area / air bed puncture
« on: 24 February 2015, 20:33:06 »
It's a kiddies airbed that has its own cover/sleeping bag.

Any suggestions on a repair? Trouble is, the hole is right on the edge of where it's been heat welded together so a patch isn't going to  work.
I'm tempted to give it a dab with a hot soldering iron but I can envisage burning a hole right the way through. Or even maybe a dab of Tigerseal over the hole?

TIA  :-\ :-\

General Discussion Area / Please read the manual
« on: 12 February 2015, 13:59:53 »
Bought a new washing machine last week, it replaced an old one so was just a case of connecting the water & drain. SWMBO used it today for the first time since I installed it on Monday. It got almost through its cycle & started to dance around the garage!  :o :o As it got to full spin I decided that switching it off at the mains would be the best policy!
Having then Please read the manual I discovered I should have removed four screws/bolts that were fitted for transit!  ::)  ::)  ::)

General Discussion Area / You just can't help some people
« on: 18 January 2015, 11:17:45 »
Just nipped to the shops, and a young girl was turning back round at the same place as me, so as we passed each other, I politely suggested that due to the misty/foggy conditions that turning her lights on might be a good idea.
Her reply ............ I'm only going down the road!!!  ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? To which I said ...... so - when someone hits you cos they could/didn't see you, it'd be OK cos you were only going a short distance. The reason why she might want her lights on in the conditions went completely over her (blonde) head!  ??? ???

I was then following her as she turned off the main road and I got a hand gesture that suggested I play with myself!

No wonder with numpties like that the powers-that-be say we've to now have day time running lights  ???
