Go get the code checked, it might be completely unrelated to your previous issue. Impossible to tell without knowing the actual code(s). Many car parts stores will check the code for you for free.

What I find crazy about this is not that the actual wing can fold in three pieces, it's that there are mechanically actuated control surfaces on the last folding piece. Linkages aplenty!

There is a term we use in IT to describe this sort of thing: "technological solution to a people problem". Forcing some arbitrary character count is not going to improve the quality, only the length. You'll end up getting "Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii" or any other 0-value message that still fits the character count. If you were to analyze the text to make sure it's not only some random filler, you'll discourage a lot of people from using the app, which will simply push them towards another platform.

Unfortunately, there is no easy technological solution to what ends up being an anxiety or shyness issue. If there was, someone would have done it and would've become incredibly rich by now!

Plants generate oxygen via photosynthesis when they are under sunlight, however, they consume oxygen when not under sunlight. So in theory, at night you could suffocate, however plans use such trivial amount of oxygen that it's completely impossible to suffocate.

I've decided to do the B model of 42077, and I didn't really like the look with the racecar wheels, so I swapped them for the big tractor wheels of 42054. I had to slightly modify the model to fit the oversize wheels. I've removed the front and back fenders and modified the front and back lights to get more clearance for the wheels.

The 42077 model is quite large for the price, which is really nice. You can see in the pictures how it's larger than the B model of 42078.

Hope you like!

I use cheap parts organizers from Canadian Tire. They are often on sale for $6-8 and they come with removable dividers. Here's a link to one to give you an idea of what they look like: Mastercraft parts organizer. You can also use tackle boxes, but they are sometimes more expensive than comparable parts boxes because (I think) the plastic is different (water and UV resistance mostly).

When you "downsize" winter tires, you keep the same overall diameter. What you remove from the wheel size you must add to the tire size. This is usually done on cars with low profile tires because low profile winter tires are shitty and expensive. On your Rav4, I don't think it would make any difference whether you use a normal size or a "downsized" set of winter tires.

It will not affect the warranty and it won't put any additional strain or wear on your car, as long as you get 4 tires of the same size. At worst, your speedometer will be slightly off if there is a difference between the overall diameter of the original tires compared to the overall diameter of your winter tires.

TPMS is expensive, but it's not required. Do you have TPMS on your summer set? I ask because my 2017 Rav4 XLE AWD doesn't have TPMS at all, but I'm in Canada so it might be different for your US-spec model.

I use Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2, 225/65R17 on my OEM 17" alloys. They grip great even in extreme snow conditions. I live near Montreal, QC, and we often get 12-15" snowstorms and I've never had any problems with these tires. I also ran the exact same tire model on my previous vehicle for several years.

Hope this helps!

Might be a dumb question, but your dealership doesn't have a Camry in the showroom you could compare yours to?

Don't forget that "they" who are saying it should be worth X months of salary are the same "they" selling you the ring. It's pure marketing.

Even though the mileage is low, I think $5k might be a tad expensive for a 20 year old car.

Wow, it really looks great! The only part that shows some aging is the plastic grille, the paint looks factory fresh!

All season tires are horrible. They're similar to summer tires on ice. Watch this video and invest in winter tires

I live in Quebec and I don't have summer tires. I run All-Season in the summer, and Winter tires in winter. Might be the same in Minnesota.

They're ok in summer and on most passenger vehicles, but don't use all-seasons in the winter unless you live in Texas or a similar climate is what I was trying to say. Even in the summer, all-seasons have a longer stopping distance than summer specific tires. All-seasons are a jack of all trades, master of none

I completely agree with you! Once they're worn down, I'll replace them with proper tires.

Can't you just turn it off?

see more

Yes, you can turn it off. You can use the cruise control as a regular cruise control by holding the button for 1.5 seconds when you turn it on. Then it won't use the radar and will instead act as a classic cruise control with a fixed speed.

You can turn the precollision system off by holding the traction control off button for several seconds with the car in park. This should turn off the traction control and all precollision braking systems.

How’s that? When the sensor is disabled due to rain the system is completely inoperable

With Cruise Control in the OFF state, hold the ON button for >1.5 seconds. The Cruise Control will turn on in "Keep Speed" mode instead of "Radar" mode and the icon will be different.

You can also turn off all precollision stuff by putting the car in park and holding the Traction Control OFF button for several seconds.

2 points · 27 days ago

Yes, at least on my Rav4 it's possible, probably on all models as well. Go into the settings and you can choose whether you want the steering assist active or not, the sensitivity of the lane assist system, and you can enable/disable the whole thing ether via the settings menu or a button to the left of the steering wheel.

Check the oil level and color in the transmission. It should be at the proper level and it should be reddish brown.

Original Poster1 point · 29 days ago

Thank you! I will be checking that later today when I get home from class. I am not savvy at all with cars (all I know how to do with my car is check/replace oil).

I had some friends telling me it is the transmission. Don't know how bad it is, but thanks for the tip on where to start.

see more

If you're lucky, it's just the transmission oil level that is low and that affects the shift from 1st to 2nd. That would be the easiest thing to solve since you'd only need to pour some transmission oil in there.

It could be a lot of things, but it's always good to eliminate the "easy" issues first. Check the air filter, make sure the engine oil is at the right level, check for blown fuses. These are all things that are easy to verify so it's always good to start there.

Worst case scenario, something is broken in the torque converter or the transmission and it needs to be replaced, which would be quite expensive. Best case scenario, it's missing a quart of transmission oil and it works perfectly fine once you pour some in there.

Because the person cannot simply leave. The employee has to take it gently, stay professional, and keep interacting with the offender.

Forward Error Correction doesn't predict "future errors", it's acting preemptively to correct possible errors. Usually this means that the data is duplicated in packets so that the loss of a packet doesn't affect the data stream. This also means you need more bandwidth to send the data as you are sending multiple copies.

Say what?

you sound extremely bitter and jealous.

Sending petty messages and taking your dating frustration out on someone that doesn't want to continue the relationship is very immature.

I am sorry if I offended you, it was not my intention.

It wasn't mean as an attack on your person. It was a judgment on your rant only. I do not know you, I have no reason to believe you are a bad person or anything of the sort.

Sometimes the way people write might not represent who they are and what they think, tone is incredibly hard to convey properly through text after all. I've written plenty of messages where I sounded like a crazy lunatic or a racist dumbass simply because I didn't choose my words carefully.

My personal opinion is that sending petty message is immature, but I understand your frustration with the situation and to be perfectly honest, I might have done the same thing myself.

I genuinely hope you can find a good match, I wish you no ill and I hope you have a good day!

While I agree with pretty much everything you put, I feel that last part about sex is not quite right as it implies he should have sex right away (if I'm misunderstanding that than I apologize). Sexual compatibility is vital in a relationship. You won't be 100% sure of that until you have sex. However, most people can judge pretty accurately whether they will do well together by the chemistry between them, and communicating what they want/need. Some people are not comfortable having sex within 3 dates and that's okay.

I might have worded it badly. /u/BlueFalcon2009 got it right, I meant it in term of "how long before the disappointment". I don't think he should have sex right away, I think it's very important that people have sex when they are ready, not after some arbitrary deadline. I just think that changing an arbitrary deadline might not have the expected results.
