Oooh he's a bad guy?

What were we talking about?!

Dear Aunt Susan,
Here , I jest, and assure you, it is not at your expense, but the T' candidate. Am done saying or even typing his name and he does not deserve the energy or attention. Focusing on who can effectively head this country in a effectively peaceful, positive, compassionate way , with strength of a mountain, is best to be elected. That is what I am honing in on with the universe. At this point, deciding the nation into smaller countries and thinking of our WORLD AND CONTINENT in a new way is mandatory to change what is no longer working. Maybe it worked at the birth of the nation for a few select persons, still suckling England's monarchy. But now much has changed. The land of the free is basically a farce and t' candidate is an example of that. There have so many blunders, cruelties, prejudice and wars,... Civil rights works over time and only true human cause making some head way,... Though in history books,... Truths be told, are inaccurate, unless accounts recognizes by those suffered. T, nor any candidate or president, can erase these memories of struggle, change, suffering or grand loses for overall victories I any cause to change the treatment of humans to humans. It is a crayon match. Which ones would be broken too quick. ... Says government,... A wholey foreign body, un~native and inhumane to tribes and guardians of what appeals to all that come here to these continent bearing wonderous mountains, glorious bodies of water and towering rich forests, valleys and prairies, along coasts and inland, once thriving with giant varieties of species respecting each other in the web of life and predatory cycle of metamorphosis .

What remains to be scene, is the insignificance of human leadership for capitalism and materialism if one is to remember the true wealth of earth. EARTH. More precious than gold, is clean water and clean air. It cannot be bought or sold. Even machines have a limit.
Humans must come together and simultaneously, return to our origins of what is within our creaturehood.
Time to remember and truly appreciate our gift of being here and preview of arriving on a planet that allows us to exist. The intention is harmony.
Will humans find harmony ? ... Again?
And can we remember this is a gift and how not to spoil it for future if we can clean this mess up.

Question: paid for diagnostics test suggests a bandaid rather than a real solution existing well made vehicle, with existing well engineered exhaust
that should not need extra parts as a solution to an existing HC issue, but possible replacement of new parts.
How to fix these. New
Throttle? New air injection valve?

Hi Folks,

My Merc ce 230 is overheating. The temperature is reaching to "120" in 10 minutes of driving. The Temperature stands still at around 80-90 while driving however when the car slow downs/trafiic signal it increases rapidly.

I stay in Qatar and its summer right now, i think weather plays its role in this problem however the rest of the cars does not get heated to this extend.

If the temperature reaches 120 I have to either stop on the ROAD or on the road side and wait for it to cool down before driving again.

The mechanics here does not have a sound knowledge about why the car is over heating.....

I have to put water every 6 hours to run it...

Your valuable advise ot suggestiong are highly appreciated with regards to a permanent solution.


Any good mechanics near Flint, MI?

I changed the breather hose and lost where the extra little hose on it connects to. finally found where, and i then took off 2 wires to distributor cap for inspection.

I noticed the engine fan stopped turning.Now im sitting for three!!!!!!

it happens maybe twice/wk wen driving but not when idling. i changed the thermostatjust in case but i still have the problem. what do i do?

anyone know which is recommended? Thanks

The rattling noise occurs while driving, all bumps and manhole covers. Sounds like the middle of the car. Sounds like a heat shield or thin tin sound. When its up on a hoist I cannot make the noise happen. Not exhaust or catylyst.

i replaced front springs an struts an the car sits low in the front an its lower on driver front then passenger side.when i hit a bump it still hits hard as if i didnt do anything to it.. whats left to look at??? or what could it be?

has new plugs wires cap and rotor button has rough idool worse when in gear but smooths out at higher rpm
