Used car scam? My sister bought a used car privately and now the catalytic is done- what can she do?

 She bought the car about two weeks ago, and it ran great for exactly 5 days.  Then it started shaking and making strange noises.  She took it into our old high school auto shop for a diagnosis, but a student disconnected the battery while it was hooked up (to clean the terminals) and we lost the diagnosis.  The instructor informed her that it would take a few days for the engine maintenance light to come back on, and to come back if and when this occurred.  Well it did- exactly 5 days later.  We are pretty sure it was reset the day she bought it so that by the time the problem arose, it would be "her problem", but can't prove it.  I'm pretty sure a catalytic converter does not constitute a safety issue, thus wouldn't be covered under her certification.  Is there anything she can do, is she on her own?

2011 mitsubishi lancer fuse voice system not working fully and how do i get it to work right?

So heres the deal. Previous owner of the car istalled an amp under the drivers seat and all the speaker wires are going to it. Sound in the car is amazing. Whats not so amazing is whatever they did while hooking this amp to the head unit they messed up the fuse voice system. It still works but is unusable because the volume is so much lower than it is supposed to be. Any suggestions on how this happened or how to fix the problem?

does this sound like it could work?

I have an idea for a magnetic car that does not run an any type of motor at all. the idea is that we put a purposeful magnetic field in our roads keeping it on the same side so every magnet was for example negative. then we take our "car" for now lets call it a box and where our wheels are there is a magnet with its negative side down so that it will stay in the air. you then yous a 5th magnet in the front of the box that is connected to a lever so that you can flip it slightly to create movement. there is a little more to this idea but this is the basics of it.

Get Car Dealers to Donate Cars

Hello Friends, Car donations can be a good source of added income for many non-profit organizations. What amounts to a tax write-off for many dealerships can be turned around and sold so the charities can increase their ability to help their causes. If you are interested in getting an automobile donation, asking a dealership to donate may be a good option. Calculate all the facts and figures before you even contact a dealership about getting a donation. Car dealers are traditionally bottom-line oriented people. This means they understand numbers well. If you can show what your operating budget and expenses are and how a donation can be a financial help to you and how the tax break will help the dealer, you will be better off.

Diy Automotive book recommendations for (vast majority of cars)?

I was wondering if anyone had any good automotive books that would help a novice diy mechanic be better at diagnosing problems and doing harder tasks.  I'm looking for a good book to teach a bit of background theory ("How car's work") and specific tasks and "How" to use tools to find out what the problem is. Or any special techniques required for less common diy/adv diy tasks. Example; how to do a valve job in a car, how to reset a car to TDC, best ways to do other things etc. Something a bit better than a Chiltons or Haynes, or even less specific. Perhaps something that could provide help with the ASE. I'm not going to actually go into automotive at the moment, but I would like to learn more of the guts.

How to create reed switch that activates wireless alarm?

I've been reading alot about reed switches after learning about a security feature for cars, a reed kill switch. I wanted to know how to or if someone could create some kind of setup where if the reed switch closes the circuit, it will activate a wireless remote or something like an alarm within a reasonable distance from the actual switch. I've seen those window/door entry alarms. Would those work? For a car, would it be possible to have the reed switch activate a small alarm in a key fob type of thing?

DISCLAIMER:  I bleeped (****) out any explicit words...... Though I could have missed s-something.  And explicit's definition is different between people Side note: If anyone thinks this is a tad (or more than a tad) over the top, PM me or reply saying so. I'll delete it. - - - If you think you'll be offended by this ad... DON'T READ IT.  - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - POS 1994 Honda Civic LX for sale - $600 (Marietta, GA) Date: 2010-07-11, 4:49PM EDT Reply to: sale-63pgj-1837513434@craigslist.org [Errors when replying to ads?] That's right, you can own a piece of shi... history right now for only $600. You may wonder why I didn't post a picture and that's because with a car this crappy, a photo is not needed. Just imagine the worst possible car and then picture a camel taking a dump in the trunk and you'll have a close approximation. You don't need to worry about me lying... it really is a POS. There is no risk of you getting over here and finding out it's really a gorgeous gem worth thousands... that doesn't happen...ever. But if for some reason that's actually happened to you, then you are acquainted with a crazy cosmic karma that has never thought to even piss in my face. I almost had a date on PlentyofFish and you know what happened? The f***ing AC died. For two years while I was not dating, it worked fine. The day after I get digits, the AC craps out. The car also has a weird hesitation problem that was not fixed even when I replaced the fuel filter. What could cause all of these things? Satan in the drive train...that's right... it's rare, but it happens to guys like me. This car is actually demon-possessed so you can forget about any sort of easy fix. Jesus said you need faith to cast out demons like this and believe me there are only two people on the planet that have that sort of faith. One guy lives in a cave in India and the other guy is dead. And you can forget about the guy in the cave helping you because, if you can find him, he's just going to tell you how physical setbacks are really spiritual blessings...blah blah blah...yada yada yada. Exactly. Don't expect sympathy from any motherf***er that sits around in his underwear in a cave. Other problems with this car include busted boots on the tie-rod ends, busted wheel hub boots, broken AC, leaking power steering system, ABS light always on, check-engine light comes on occasionally, driver window sometimes comes off the track, paint has permanent dirt in it (yes, it's f***ing permanent...you can't scrub it out with anything less than sandpaper or some highly explosive chemical that causes cancer in 49 states and erectile dysfunction in the 50th.) The car does drive, but that's about all it's good for. Good luck getting it to pass emissions. I've never tried as it's still registered in Clarke County. If you want to date, this car is probably not for you. On a positive note though, I can assure you no one has ever had sex in it. It would take a miracle to get a girl to even sit in this car, much less take her clothes off in it. Other possible uses for this car included entertainment at frat parties. You could charge people $5 a swing with a baseball bat, although you still probably wouldn't recover your investment. You might be able to sell it to the Mythbusters and get the to test the myth, "Is it possible that a car could really be this s***ty?" Adam Savage and Kari Byron will have a field day and close it off with "Myth f***ing confirmed" and a side comment from Kari about how whatever d*****bag use to own it must have never been laid. There are some positives like a beautiful Lumar 32% tint job, keyless entry with remote trunk release, an Alpine CD Player, and Pioneer speakers in the door. So at worst, you can sit in your driveway and listen to music with a bottle of Jergens and a picture of Eliza Dushku. I really wouldn't recommend taking it on the road until you replace the tie-rod ends. You might crash into a bus full of nuns and then the Pope will reign motherf***ing hail fire down on your betrodden a** with more fury than the inquisition because you actually decided to drive and be seen in such an amazing POS, killing 20 of his lovely Sisters. One other thing you might use this car would be pushing it off a cliff. If you've ever wanted to see what it's like first hand for a car to fall hundreds of feet and smash against rock, then here's your chance. Although don't be surprised if this demon-possessed sleigh from hell manages to f*** up your good time even in that bold scenario. I don't know how it would, but it would probably figure out a way. If there are any parents out there reading this, don't let your children fall into the situation I'm in. I would never have ended up with this car if I had pursued a real career. But instead I majored in math where the best job I can find now is up in Portland with a bunch of bran muffin eating hippies, jerking off Moose for 75 cents a smile for some wildlife conservation sperm bank. Let your kids do something with good with their future, like wait tables at Denny's. Oh yeah... it's white, 4 doors, and automatic. Whooptie-f***in-do!

How to make a magnetically powered/propelled vehicle ?

I'm a freshman in high school doing a Year End Project (YEP) for STEM. My project is a vehicle that is propelled by electromagnetism. I have three main idea's already. Option 1: Completely replace wheels with large magnets with either a North or South charge. Then replace normal roads with railings charged with magnetism of the same polar to the cars. The bumpers could be magnetically charged as well. With all car bumpers being the same polar, it would decrease the chances of accidents. Take into account that this idea has only started growing for the past 2 years so my ideas for the mechanics are not close to completion so I'm leaving those thoughts out. Option 2: keep the wheels but modify them to have 2-3 smaller magnets on the inside of the wheel. By turning and switching on different a polar changing direction between forwards and backwards. Then add the same idea with the bumpers for the same reason. This cuts the cost exponentially. Option 3: Keep the wheels and everything else of a normal automobile except the engine. Replace it with on large magnet that's stationary and a smaller magnet that can rotate or switch between North and South polar's. Possibly instead of only one pair of magnets increase to an unknown number to allow for more speed, braking and acceleration power. Still keep with the bumper idea. I can't seem to find a reason other than cost to get rid of it. Of course the magnets would interfere with electronics. I haven't thought of a solution for that problem as of yet.
