No inspection states rule

So glad I live in Michigan. This state doesn't care how rusty your car is, how polluting your car is, or even if it is remotely safe to drive. As long as they get your money for the annual license...

Well shoot. It never occurred to me to try the car in neutral to see if it had the lag. Which probably is a good argument for my sticking with letting the shop do all my repairs, and probably even...

I am OK with an occasional cloth car wash at the end of winter, if I can even find one since most have gone touchless.

Touchless in a Michigan winter is nice to get salt off, but it does leave a...

Did the gas cap issue cause a check engine light to go off, or did you just notice it was ratcheting too easy? Thinking I have a similar issue, but I have not had an engine light go off.
