I am considering buying a 1994 Land Rover Defender 90 Diesel imported from Poland with 223,000 kilometres on it. While test-driving it, I noticed a grinding noise when shifting into second gear. The owner says I was shifting too quickly. Any clue as to what it may be? The other gears shifted smoothly. – TomI am going to assume that the vehicle in question features a manual transmission.
My 2011 CR-V LX has a wobble at 98-100 km per hour throughout the chassis. Placing your hand anywhere in the car, you will feel the wobble/shaking in the dashboard and arm rest. I balanced all the tires and then replaced them. While it was still within warranty, Honda replaced the bearings, drive shafts, [and] removed the rear propeller shaft in an attempt to isolate the problem and also tried bolting on another set of wheels from a newer CRV. All attempts failed to rectify the wobble.
When buying a new Impreza last fall, I turned down the sales pitch to buy an electronic rust-proofing package and planned to use Krown rust spray every year. I was left with the impression that my vehicle’s warranty will be voided if I did. – LeslieThese electronic modules are commonly available across the new car marketplace, sold by the individual dealers, not the manufacturers. They are known as cathodic protection devices and have been highly successful when used in ships and pipelines, etc.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
