CAR TALK

Subscriber onlyDEAR CAR TALK: I have a 2006 GMC Envoy XL with 227,000 miles. After sitting in the garage overnight, when I start it, the oil pressure gauge will drop, and the oil warning light comes on. If I leave it in park and keep the engine revved up, then the oil pressure will go up. Two blocks from the house is a stoplight, and I have to put it in neutral and rev the engine, or the oil pressure drops and warning lights come on. After about 10 minutes of driving, the oil pressure still drops some at stoplights, but not low enough to cause the warning light to come on. Am I damaging the engine by continuing to drive? Why does it have oil pressure after it's warmed up but not after sitting overnight? Continue reading...

In the garden

Subscriber onlyQ I had a palm tree planted in our backyard when we moved in two years ago. It is about 5 to 6 feet tall and is supposed to be safe to 10 degrees below zero. It is in full sun about six hours a day. There are about 4 inches of new soil in the garden, but underneath that, it's kind of rocky. After last winter, all of the fronds were brown, so I had to cut them all off and start over. Continue reading...

Car Talk

Subscriber onlyDEAR CAR TALK: I seem to be missing something lately that I can't figure out. There appears to be an epidemic of drivers who, when stopped at stoplights, insist on leaving one, two and sometimes even three car lengths between themselves and the car in front of them. It is not just old folks like myself, either. Is there some benefit to their cars that people believe in, that I have never heard of? I don't know of any. Continue reading...
