Why does the driver's side front wheel squeak when you're driving and immediately stop when you brake?

Because your brakes, when applied, "straiten" the rotor (disk) from a cockeyed angle. To put it simply, your wheel bearings are worn and while driving, the rotor, wheel and tire are at a slight angle. The "wear indicators" (a small piece of metal attached to the pads on the top) built into the brake pads are temporarily rubbing against the rotor. When you apply the brake, it temporarily returns the group back to where is should be as if it were new, stopping the indicators from touching the rotor.

Thought i should add that if your wheel stops squeaking when you depress the pedal it is usually a sign of ball-bearing wear. The wheel will squeak through braking if the brakes are done, or worn.

How engine starts?

an engine needs a primemover force to start. that is, a sufficient-initial external force. thats why, we kick the kicker of the bike inorder to put it an external starting force. in case of self starting engines, also in cars, there is a starter motor to give up this external starting torque when we push the ignition switch or the ignition key.

mostly people buy their first car at the age of 20-22 or teenagers can also be included. it all depends on economics. at 20 I had two jobs and a mother with excellent credit willing to cosign a loan for my brand new 1986 Hyundai Excel GL.

Fuel Economy and Mileage

Can a rav 4 go to 300000 miles?

Probably. Many Toyotas go several hundred thousand miles. My Dad sold his Camry at 280000 miles about 8 months ago, and we still see that car driving around town from time to time. I used to own a Corolla that had 180000 miles when I sold it, and the buyer drove it another 50000 miles before he sold it.

How is a blown head gasket caused?

A blown head gasket is usually caused by over filling the oil during an oil change, or just the opposite not having enough oil to compensate the pressure status, therefor causing exstreme overheating which in turn will cause many problems other than just a blown gasket. ie; engine locks up, overheats ,and then is all around just needs replacing. Once you've blown your engine you basically have hit bottom. Hope this helps.

It can also be caused by detonation. Especially if you add turbo or supercharger aftermarket.

Why is car sluggish in the heat?

i imagine that the car itself is in good working order so to that effect the computer may be pulling timing to avoid detonation based on the inlet air temperature.

Where is the tvv valve on a 1997 Toyota Corolla?

On my 1995 Corolla, it is on the back side of the EVAP unit, which is attached to the left (driver side) of the engine block.

Another way to locate it is by following the thin vacuum line from the charcoal cannister at the left rear of the engine compartment, this line enters the TVV (Thermal Vacuum Valve) that extends out of the EVAP unit.

Perhaps the 97 is setup the same way, but I'm not certain.

Check Engine Light

My 2001 Honda Accord's check engine light blinks 5 times when car is being started. What does this mean?

In my experience, this means that when you got your car serviced last the technician did not reset the mileage for your next service. You can expect the check engine light to stay on permanently after a few more miles. The car thinks that you're way over your scheduled mileage for service. Just let your technician know this next time you service your car to make sure they reset the mileage.

The Difference Between

How can you tell synthetic oil or ordinary oil apart?

Firstly, by the huge price difference on the shelf ... lol!

The synthetic is a bit more transparent ... the type I use is closer to dark red in color.

If your car has a turbo, synthetic oil is better for it as it operates at a cooler temperature than ordinary oil.
