Ok here is my stupid questions..

I have a roach in my trunk and i can never catch it.. best way to get rid of it?
Leave your car in the sun on a hot day with the windows up. I.E. - roast it.

Where I live, I can roast them in the summer, or freeze them in the winter. I managed to get rid of fleas from a car once using one of those methods. And I won't go hiking on Sugarloaf Mountain in Montgomery County MD again.

Two questions for the abbis 2012 1.8l mt

One, every now and then I start the car and it'll do a crank cycle but not start, the 2nd turn of the key and it starts instantly. Always starts no problem otherwise and no cels.

Two when I'm heavy into the throttle why does it feel like you have more power applying slightly less throttle than if you were to just mash it?

Let's face it, we weren't born with a wrench in our hands. While some of us have a good understanding of automotive mechanics, sound systems, and other car-related topics, we didn't always know as much as we do.

There was a time in my life when I didn't know what a header was, and I couldn't point out the intake manifold or throttle body in an engine bay, and I was too embarrassed to admit to it.

Well, I'd like to create this thread to give people the opportunity to ask what they'd consider to be "stupid" questions without being judged or laughed at, and give others the opportunity to answer them. Sure, you can google these topics for more information, but sometimes it's easier to have someone answer them for you and give a thorough explanation. No question is too stupid, mundane, or elementary.

The more knowledge people have, the more they can share it with others, so have at it. Does anyone here have any "dumb" questions they've been wondering about?

P.S. I have no idea how many people will actually post. This thread is a bit of an experiment...
We have a 2016 Cruze- how long should a sway bar last? The shop is saying we need it replaced but we just bought it last year and they apparently did a full inspection then- would it have broken (or whatever they do) in a year of basic city driving?

Anyone know what this part is called, and/or it's function? It is in the oil cooler of a 2013 cruze lt 1.4l turbo. It is in the spot for the turbo oil feed line. I replaced my oil cooler, was trying to push it in the insert the feed line, and I broke it. I tried to use the one from the old oil cooler, but when I tried to exchange the o ring, I broke that, too. Not my week.
