Q: I have a 2003 Malibu and I just installed and balanced new tires. At around 60mph, I get a little shake that disappears and does not come back at higher speeds, slow back down to 60 and it comes back again, it was there before the new tires. I was hoping that would clear it up. Any ideas?
A: Speed sensitive shakes are mostly balance issues. Maybe a bent rim, bad brake rotor, even a missing stud. Also its possible that your engine rev makes something resonate at that speed. Try the same speed with different rev (change gear), but this is not likely.
Q: I wanted to know if anyone could help me out. I own a 1989 Camaro (auto) and it seems to flood from time to time. I wanted to know what is the best way to fix it after it has been flooded, instead of always towing it to the mechanics?
A: Take out the plugs and remove all the moisture using ATF fluid to get rid of all the gas, as removing the plugs and letting it dry won't do it (usually). Go to your local auto parts store and pick up a new set of spark plugs.
