I thought a heavy salt like that before a storm would turn the road white or at least whiter.  I have heard of brine before but didn't know how it worked.  It gets in the cracks and prevents freezing reducing pot holes.  It can be applied 48 before a storm, but it seems to last longer and doesn't spread out, it stays in those lines.

I've also read something to the effect that there's a cheese component that helps it adhere and stay on the roadways after application, but I'm not 100% certain of that part.

I looked it up, I thought maybe the rennet thickened the salt brine helping it stick.  What you are talking about is the whey, and yes they do use it.

However I don't think it will last, whey is very acidic and not good for surrounding vegetation and waterways.  Neither is salt so I don't know.

As long as it doesn't make the car's frame, fenders and rocker panels turn into swiss cheese rust in 2 years it has to be an improvement.

You guys are naive and brainwashed! Those are clearly accompanying chemtrails and are used to enhance the mindcontrol waves the TZOG is sending out. They came to the conclusion that it would be way more effective to apply it on the road and let the active chemical components be released to your in car air when you swirl them up with tire friction and exhaust fumes.

This is her trying to help me troubleshooting a charging issue.

I love this.  Young girls learning mechanical stuff is awesome.  My daughter helped me put together a garage door when she was around six years old.

Sears carries a full line of tools that are pink.  I'm kind of skeptical about that.  I think if a girl is interested in mechanical stuff enough to want her own set of tools, it's not an area where she's going to be asserting her girlie side.

I often try to think of tasks she can help with when I'm fixing things. She was so thrilled the first time she helped me "fix the car" she was around 4 or 5 and replaced the air filter for me.

 

I have a purple set of tools. My ex-husband kept running off with my tools and not putting them back, so a friend bought me a purple set, so when I wanted to do something simple I didn't have to go hunting. I keep that bag in the trunk of the falcon, along with a full set of wrenches and sockets. It's a nice bag for holding tools in a trunk.

Heh. Are the tools purple or are they just in a purple bag?

The handles are purple and black.

I was talking to a guy today who has done some mechanical work, rides motorcycles, etc. He said that they love the pink tools. The tool vendors offer them at a good price, and nobody wants to steal them.

Not a car, but a small engine ... today my pressure washer seized up, between runs.  I shut it down to do some other work, then went to start it up again about 20 minutes later, and couldn't pull the cord.  Took off the recoil starter and tried to turn it by hand ... wouldn't budge.

What can make a small engine totally seize up like that?  It has oil, which has been changed on a good schedule, and I disconnected the water pump from both ends to make sure it wasn't stuck on the implement end.

Your fuel.  Have you been using ethanol free fuel in your small engine?  If you don't use ethanol free fuel, your gonna have a bad time.

There's no such thing as ethanol free in these parts..... But if you run small engines empty, it should be fine - and it usually doesn't cause a problem with the engine itself, but the fuel system.

Take the spark plug out and put some oil in and let it soak for a couple of days. Then try to turn the engine again.

Wow, you are correct.  I thought they had ethanol free everywhere.  Expensive, but it would be available.

Weird. I'll try putting some oil in the spark plug socket and letting it soak, and we'll see what happens.

The weird thing is that the engine was not run dry; it had both fuel and oil, and both are reasonably fresh. The engine also hadn't been sitting/stored, either -- it had been running fine some 20 minutes earlier.

when adding oil through the spark plug socket, should the engine be tilted so that the socket faces up?

I guess it depends... Don't know which way the piston sits....

I witnessed two guys trying to jump start a car in a parking lot.  Myself and one other guy who lent the jumper cables said, "Positive to positive, negative to metal frame on the dead car."  These guys say, "it's fine it's fine."  They are testing how well the dead car's battery is charged by keeping the headlights on and looking into them.  It was a bright sunny morning and he is on one knee looking into a headlight saying "I can't tell, I can't tell, must not be very bright so it needs to charge more."   Eventually the dead car starts.

It belonged to a little old lady who thanked the men, got into her car and said. "Let's see if it starts again." and turned the car off.
