What drives better on Snow/Ice Silverado or Tahoe or trailblazer?

which truck has better handling and stability and ability to plow throw snow and drive ok on ice…. the Silverado or Tahoe/Yukon or trailblazer/envoy? 2006 models

rear vs awd, truck vs suv …

ive never driven either and want one but want it to be stable and handle pretty good in the winter in snow and ice.

NOTE: i will not be plowing snow, i just meant it can drive in a foot of snow, and drive on un-plowed roads, and on icey roads with good stability and power.

Any of them should work very well, as long as they have good tires & the 4wd works.

What to ask when buying a car wash?

My fiance and I are looking to buy a local self serve car wash. It is established and been around for many years. The owner is getting up in age and has decided to sell. Can someone please give me some advice on what we need to be asking, or what we need to know before we jump in? My father Manages a car wash chain and knows all about the mechanics and servicing, but we don’t currently have an accountant or financial advisor to help with the profitability and things of that nature. Any help that someone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

You have pretty much answered yourself. A thorough exam of the books looking for items out of the normal range is a start. What income multiple is a fair price? Also look to the future of the location. Is the neighborhood changing or development going on or moving away? I’ll assume you have taken time to observe how traffic is on the street. And pulling in to wash to see if it supports what the books say. It’s worth a few bucks to have it all checked out before jumping in to a deal. Good luck.

Will I get a ticket for locking my motorcycle to a light pole with a chain?

I live in a rough part of Phoenix AZ and feel unsafe leaving my motorcycle in the parking lot unchained. Would i get a ticket by chaining my bike to a light post? It would be on the gravel next to the sidewalk.

Most likely you won’t unless the bike is parked directly on the side walk itself. I had the same problem in an apartment complex I used to live in. I couldn’t leave my bike in the parking lot or in the covered garage without fear that someone would lift it onto a truck. Chaining your bike up to the pole or something in moveable is probably the best solution for you. I used to roll mine into my living room each day after a ride because I didn’t have a pole. Haha.
Anyways, hopefully you won’t get a cop who is a jerk or having a bad day – because this location is subjective and not really conforming with Phoenix AZ Law.

How do I take bike chain grease off the interior of my car?

I was putting my bike in my car and the chain left some grease on the seat. My interior is a light grey so it’s noticeable. How would I be able to take it off? I don’t want to smear it!

This is my expertise. Having been in the Specialty Maintenance Chemical industry for 32 years the best thing you can spray on your interior is Brake Parts Cleaner of any brand from your discount auto parts store. The chemical is in the same family as dry cleaning fluid.

Circle the grease spraying the clean fabric first and working your way in circles to the center. Blot with a clean white towel. Repeat if necessary. Do not scrub. Allow to air dry for 30 minutes with your car windows down. It will be as clean as a professional can make it.

Do not use Simple Green as it will bleed the grease into the fabric as it uses water based solvents. Hand cleaner needs rinsed off or the residual cleaner itself will collect dirt and appear as a larger spot than the one you wanted to remove.

Dodge 350 pick up truck with auto transmission with a cummings diesel?

If I chain it to a big tractor and pull it in road gear. Will it start?
It is an electrical problem.

It should if the truck fuel filters are clean. You may have to gear the truck down lower one or two cogs.

Cummings is actually spelled Cummins.
