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.

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...

Why was William at a disadvantage at the start of the Battle of Hastings in 1066?

Prior to the Battle, Harold had set up his defense on Senlac Hill which meant the Normans would be forced to fight an uphill battle. Considering the soldiers were wearing chain mail, this was not a small disadvantage. Since this was a cavalry, the combination of the weight and uphill struggle would necessarily slow down their horses.

Should your wheels be turned to or away from the curb when parked?

Your front wheels should be turned so that, if your car were to roll it would turn into the curb. If your car is facing downhill, the front wheels should be turned into the curb. If your car is facing uphill, your front wheels should be turned away from the curb.

Who is liable if you were parked in a parking lot during a snowstorm and your car was hit by a snowplow?

Assuming the parking lot was open, and the car had every right to be parked there. The owner of the snowplow, and possibly the operator of it would be liable for damages to the parked car.

If your car is illegally parked and has been hit by another car who pays for damages?

Generally speaking, the driver in motion is considered to be at fault when a parked car is hit, even if the car was parked illegally. The exception to this would be if the car was parked in a dangerous, hard-to-see location and the driver in motion could not have reasonably avoided hitting it. For example, if a car is parked on a sharp curve in the travel lane of a narrow road, and the driver of a car driving around the curve at the speed limit would not be able to see the parked car until too close to it to avoid a collision, then the driver might not be liable for damage to the parked car, and indeed the driver who parked the car might be liable for damage to the car that hit it.
