Always use premium fuel for any car that has fuel-injection, it will start & run better & get the same miles per dollar of gas. Premium fuel helps keep the injectors clean. Use Castrol GTX multigrade oil & always use a fresh air cleaner. Our '95 Taurus has 145,000 miles on it & has been almost trouble-free. Also have the fuelpump tested, it may be weak (it's mounted inside the gastank).
I believe you are "standing", not parked.
it is quite possible that your gas line is clooged or you need a new fuel filter.
If your car is running when parked then it is burning gas. Cars use gasoline to run the engine.
Check for exhaust leak before certain o2 sensors.
Usually when parked at a speed trap or when stationary.
Because your car is running and they dont want someone to hop in your car and steal it
Diesels are kept running while parked for various reasons. In cold weather, a diesel may be very difficult to start so it is better to leave it running. Maybe the engine is needed to run heat or A/C for the sleeper cab.
New plugs and flush fuel system, includes draining tank and fill with fresh fuel.
Dew is the tiny drops of water that form on cool surfaces at night, when atmospheric water vapor condenses: "The grass was wet with morning dew" "The windshield of the parked car was covered in dew- it had been there for some time."
Exhaust fumes may enter and that is not good.
You don't unless you are parked with the engine running. If you are parked and you want the engine running but don't want the daytime running lights on just shut the car off and set the parking brake then start the car back up. The lights should remain off until you release the parking brake.
Yes. Being illegally parked does not affect fault. If you strike a parked vehicle, it is ALWAYS your fault because you have a duty to ensure the way was clear before moving.
Does yours have air suspension on it. You may have a leak causing it to sit lower when you are not running. Ford Expeditions with air suspension is designed to lower when parked for easier access.
If you mean the daytime running lights , just put your emergency / parking brake on when you are parked
If you are parked with the motor running, engage the parking/emergency brake. Turn the ignition off and restart the engine. The daytime running lights should not be on.
Of course it is your fault. The fact that the car was illegally parked is of no consequence. You didn't look where you were backing or you would not have hit the parked car. Would you have hit this car if you had been looking? Perhaps the illegally parked car is a Mini Cooper, parked illegally 1 foot behind a Hummer and therefore not visable when the driver looks before backing up...
No, you don't have to single, nor do you have to signal. Learning to spell before passing a parked car would be more important than to do a single or a signal.
As long as the parked vehicle is parked properly and not illegally parked in any manner, then the vehicle that rear-ended the parked car is at fault. Now if the parked car is sitting illegally (such as double parked or parked in a no parking zone, etc.) then the parked car is at fault or even both the parked car AND the car that hits it are BOTH at fault.
i'd have to say the person who left the car running. if they didnt leave it running they could have prevented the thief from smashing it into your car.
I believe the owner of the car that slid down would be responsible since it's the driver's responsibiltiy to ensure the car is parked securely. And since the car did slide down, then the insurance company is likely to say that car wasn't parked properly.
Yes, a person can get a ticket for an expired car inspection if the car is parked on public property. All they have to do is get it inspected before the court date.
The person's who parked it there, (its parked illegally.)Not your fault.
