NewMost people overlook the small things, sometimes when putting the car in park uphill it doesn fully enage the neutral safety switch, it just happens. Turn the ignition to on and hold on the brake and pull it out of gear and the push it back into park with a little more force. Try starting it now in neutral or park. If it starts hooray. if not then theres other possible problems such as fuel, etc.

That's a good one. I would try parking on a level surface. hook up a fuel pressure gauge and a noid light to check for spark. then jack the rear end up to the similar angle you park it on and have the problem. Then crank (turn over means the same) the engine and see what happens. If it doesn't start you will be able to tell if it is spark or fuel that is missing, and trouble shoot from there. I do empathize with the mechanic's feeling regarding the aftermarket warranty company. I truly hate dealing with most of them as they don't want to cover many things that are part of a job,including time to find what is wrong, they want to dictate what they will pay. Getting paid from them is usually a pain, too. I only care to deal with a company called heritage warranty.

Can a car start fire 6 hours after being parked with everything turned off?

No, if the car was shut off and cool, which it would have been by then. You did not try to start the car. It would have had to have been a random act of vandalism to get the car on fire.

What would cause a dodge ram diesel engine to start hard when parked facing uphill but start easy when facing downhill?

Closely examine the entire length of the fuel line to see if there are ANY pinhole fuel leaks. Even the slightest amount of fuel seepage will result in a vacuum leak and that would cause the fuel line to suck air when the vehicle is facing uphill. If it's a small leak the action of the fuel pump could eventually overcome the leak, driving any trapped air out.

Would your airmatic relay cause your car to lower while its parked?

This is not the cause, this relay is to start the and run the compressor (Basically) and it will not cause the system to lower overnight.

Who is at fault when you back into a car that is illegally parked?

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...
