Hello Scotty,

I have a 2000 volvo s80 with 170,000 miles on it. The transmission fluid is dark, and I want to change it. However, I have read on the internet that if you change the transmission fluid on a car this old, the varnish will loosen and flush throughout my transmission and just gunk it up later. Is there any truth to this? Please Advise.

Thanks.

Hi scotty, my 2004 nissan xterra brakes are over sensitive but only when I first start drive, I barely touch the pedal and it's as if I'm going all the way down whats the problem?

either master cylinder is weak or the booster. Try the master first, they cost tons less

Hey scotty i just want your opinion on cars with turn dial shifters, and electronic parking brakes. Would it be dumb to buy? Also im thinking about getting a 2016 Honda Civic Lx-p coupe
30 mpg city and 41 hwy or a 2016 prius 2, between the two which would be a better buy?

High tech crap breaks down, both of those are super high tech. But I'd go honda on those two

Hi Scotty . How are you ? I hope you are doing well. I have a Honda ody 04 and o need to replace my timing belt because it has almost 97000 miles on it. Could you tell me repair cost please ?

that V6 is a hard timing belt job , most guys charge 650 or more to do it
