  • If a water pump was about to seize would it usually display any symptoms beforehand ?

    Hi brothers, hey sisters. I have spent thousands of £'s over my 5 years of motoring on my 4 previous cars. I have had my current car (57 plate Vauxhall Vectra 1.9 cdti) for about 1 month now. it has 139,200 on the clock. previous owner said timing belt was done at 96,000 but had no proof to confirm this.... show more
    Hi brothers, hey sisters. I have spent thousands of £'s over my 5 years of motoring on my 4 previous cars. I have had my current car (57 plate Vauxhall Vectra 1.9 cdti) for about 1 month now. it has 139,200 on the clock. previous owner said timing belt was done at 96,000 but had no proof to confirm this. Having looked on the owners forum and even in the manual it says belt itself is good for 100k, however it goes on to say it is highly recommended to replace belt and water-pump at 40,000 thou because the water pump apparently is very common for seizing on these engines. my question is, if a water pump was about to seize would the owner get any symptoms before it did before it destroyed the engine ? (due to seized water pump) or does it usually just seize without warning whatsoever ? I could get it replaced now but I want at least 3 months that I can drive a car from purchase without paying out on so soon. however, I also don't want the panic that the water pump would seize potentially damaging the engine. thanks !

  • Bought a Toyota RAV4 out-the-door $27,000. Now Toyota wants another $150 to pick up my tag/license plate. They say it's the DMV price.?

    I asked why and he said that when we bought the car, he only estimated the tag/plate and we have to pay the difference ($150). I then said well we agreed on the out-the-door price so it isn't our fault, it's his financing error and estimation. What can I do? Should I involve the police?

  • How do airline pilots prevent bird and geese strikes from happening?

    Best answer: Can't. The best we can do is keep a sharp eye out for flocks of birds. On approach and takeoffs, air traffic control can also give us advisories about where the flocks are gathering. But while on instrument flight rules, we are limited in what we can do to avoid them.

    But that's about it.

  • Can I take my motorcycle to any auto-mechanic shop to have a hole in my tire repaired?

    Plain and simple. There s nail in my rear tire and there are absolutely no motorcycle mechanics near me. The closest one is a 30-45 minute ride, but there s a mechanic less than 5 minutes away. Can a car mechanic patch up a motorcycle tire or should I pay 100+ dollars to have my bike towed to a motorcycle garage?

    Okay, I am currently paying $325 A MONTH for car insurance. Its just killing me right now, I cannot afford that a month. I'm looking at getting my own place soon and I'd like to lower that to under $200. My uncle says I shouldn't be paying anymore than $140 for car insurance. The problem is, I was originally quoted $160 for car insurance on my new car, but I financed a new car in my own name, so my parents did not cosign for me. My parents aren't on the title, or the registration, so my insurance went WAY up! Now my insurance is $325 a month. I've gone to the DMV to add my parents onto the title or the registration, but the DMV won't let me do just the registration unless they have the title, which the car is being financed and the company won't hand over the title until I pay for car off. The bank won't let me refinance it under my parents name. So in other words I am screwed. I've called several insurance companies, $318 was the cheapest I've found with AllState. I don't understand why its so high, I have never had an accident, never gotten pulled over, never gotten a ticket. I've been licensed since I was 17. I'm even signed up for the insurance Drive app that monitors your driving, but it only brought my insurance down a few dollars. I have a good student discount, I just don't know what to do. Insurance is too much and its not like I can just abandon my insurance because I need my car to get to school and work.

  • How much does other person s insurance owe me for my my car which they totaled?

    Best answer: There are a few problems here, that I "believe" based on your question. The rental should be paid back for the 4/4 to 4/31. Granted if they did not decide she was liable, then you would owe. But once they agreed at fault, then it was just a matter of determining if your vehicle was able to be fixed,... show more
    Best answer: There are a few problems here, that I "believe" based on your question.

    The rental should be paid back for the 4/4 to 4/31. Granted if they did not decide she was liable, then you would owe. But once they agreed at fault, then it was just a matter of determining if your vehicle was able to be fixed, or totaled, so could take some time (their time).

    Most insurance companies once a vehicle is deemed total, may only cover the rental till they make you an offer, then shut it down to motivate you to find another vehicle before they stop it.

    Now the towing/storage, there are several questions on this. Did you receive a letter or talk to the adjuster, or did they leave a message saying if your vehicle is in storage, YOU must move asap to a body shop or even to your house to stop the storage. .

    Most insurance companies have a "standard" mitigation letter that states that you have a duty to mitigate your loss, in other words, cut the costs, and would state you should arrange to move your vehicle from the storage lot asap. If, you got that letter, what date is on the letter? Then they "should" owe per the date of the letter and "maybe" 2 days to allow you to receive it.

    But even, if no letter, they could have told you on the phone, or left a message on your voice mail, so then you should have moved it then. But if they screwed up, by not talking to you, leaving a message or sending that letter then they should be on the hook. Most computers will log automatically any letters mailed in the claim notes, or the adjuster will note talk to the claimant, and once again it will log the date/time they did this, so can't go back and state on 4/7, told her, but forgot to put in the notes on 4/27.

    Now the only thing that "might" be right is the value of your totaled car. Insurance owes you fair market value, in other words, if not for this accident, is what you could have sold your vehicle for. This formal offer is usually about 10 pages, that lists the make/model/year/vin#, the mileage and the condition of your vehicle, good/bad. They will even rate the tires. They should have a listing of comparable cars for your car to come up with the value. They will usually show options that add value and others that may reduce the value. Take a look at this report to see if they missed anything.

    Here are your options. Do you have collision coverage on your vehicle? If so, then let your insurance handle and they will pay for everything and go after the insurance company. But, if only liability, then can't help you.

    I am guessing your vehicle is now in a salvage yard, and if not move it there asap.

    Good news is that you now have an another vehicle, so that buys you some time. My suggestion is to file a complaint with the insurance department or commissioners office in your state against this insurance company. Every state has one and will have a place called complaints. Now after you file the complaint the insurance has 30 days to file an answer of why they offered less on the value, rental and storage.

    Now, if they did not cover their behind, then with the complaint in most cases goes up to management to review the file to see if in fact they screwed up.

    Now when you settle for the car they will have you sign a release (standard), but they could "try" and add the storage and rental onto it, and if so and you sign it, then would be S O L.

    The storage could be "iffy". But they should pay for the rental.

    I am currently in the market for a new car in 2017 and currently some of the dealership been giving me the same answer. First of all I wanted a model of a car that is mainly made in manual but due to sharing a car in the family it has to be a automatic. So for that reason I wanted to get a automatic, however to get a automatic the car has to be ordered and every dealership keep saying I shouls just buy the manual and they would give me a good deal and if I want the automatic I would have to wait 2-3 months for the car to arrive. To me waiting is fine, but now when i contact the salemans at these dealership they tell me that I can no longer order a 2017 car in the middle of 2017 and the only model i can order is a 2018 is this true and if its not how can i order the car i want without the bs run around saying i cant order a car because its out of the year and new model is being made?

    Well my car was rear ended. Here in NYC, that happening means you re not at fault. Thankfully nobody was seriously injured, and faking an injury wasn t even on my mind, as I find it immoral. My insurance provider is USAA, whom already waived my deductible. I m still waiting on the decision from USAA on whether it s considered a total loss, but the shop where it currently resides is confident it is; in his words "no shop in their right mind would touch this car" lol. It s worth roughly 11k, it has been in one prior accident, however, and I owe 9k on the loan. It s a 6 year loan and I m on year 4, so it s two-thirds paid. My dilemma comes in here: I have a pursuit which requires money and keeping this impending insurance payout would help my cause greatly. I m aware that the bank still possesses the title of the car, and the insurance company would need that title in order to salvage the car. I m also aware that the bank typically releases the title upon full payment of the collateral. I know that bank terms vary and I ll need to talk to my lender, but I come to the yahoo community for some insight. Would it be possible to have the title released (because there is no more collateral and I m so far into my loan), continue making payments on the car until it s paid, and keep the money to pursue my endeavors?
