Q: 2009 Sentra CVT Sounds Like a Diesel Truck When Cold

alduxMy 2009 Nissan Sentra CVT 2.0l when cold sounds very loud, and similar to a Diesel Engine. The noise gets worst when climbing a steep hill right around the corner that I have to go through when driving to work. I've taken it to a shop but they say they couldn't find nothing wrong with it. Thoug...

Q: How does the choke on my mower work?

2NinerRomeoI am wondering if the choke may be part of the reason I am having trouble with my mower. It appears that there is very little force causing it to stay open or closed.

Q: High idle and car shakes badly

Geeshath PeirisMy 2011 Suzuki wagon R engine has idle RPM of about 1700. The engine shakes badly for some period as soon as it is started but later settles down. I got the throttle body cleaned using an injector cleaner, but I still have both problems. Please help me with a solution.

^Too broad, far too many plausible scenarios
The mower question, seems like saying to get a spring is the obvious answer
shouldn't we just answer some of these?
@DucatiKiller If we can we should. The beauty of having a chat room like this is that we can discuss about whether to close or not
6:12 PM
The reason why I'd close it is that they never got back
makes sense but there is a benefit to others perhaps?
(And I don't know enough about carbs to know if it is still answerable)
Your call. You have my backing

Q: Is there a general procedure for retrofitting "smart key" cars with real keys?

R..With all the cost, trouble, loss-of-use, and inability to shut the vehicle off if electronics fail associated with "smart" keys, if I ever get a car that needs one I think I'd want to adapt it to start and stop with an ordinary mechanical key or other mechanism. Is there any clean, established wa...
