    I honestly don't know. It's sort of like DUI laws. Not likely to affect me personally, so I don't worry about it.

    I'd guess that it applies to crashes that resulted in your getting a traffic...

    Your Dad knew. You didn't need to say the words. Don't feel bad about that. You were there when he needed you to be, and that's what counts.

    I don't know what the landscape of the head looks like, but you could reduce compression a little bit by shaving some material INSIDE the combustion chambers.

    I think your best bet is to buy a scrap engine and take it apart. Unless it's cheaper to just buy a new rod and piston. Not likely that anyone is going to have those numbers... And would you trust...

    It only gives you more rear visibility if your back window gets dirty. For me, in the environment that I drive in, that might happen over the course of a month or two... maybe. I usually clean it...

    Brake rotors are cast iron. They rust. Every car does that. New rotors, old rotors. Factory or aftermarket. It's not a Mitsubishi parts problem, it's just the nature of cast iron. Now, I will agree...

    If the rotor is so rusty that it needs to be replaced, then replace the rotor. Leave the pads alone.
