    I'm curious of what causes an engine to overheat? How do you know if it happened naturally or if there was some sort of tampering involved?

    Drive for about ten minutes then stop, if you see any sort of steam, the. It's overheating

    Plus, your thermometer is a good indication. I've found that if the temp is any where close to halfway to hot, it may be cause to get it checked out

    But I'm curious as to how it even happened - do engines naturally overheat if the car is old? How expensive should it be to maintain?

    Is it possible for me to fix it on my own? A little low in cash atm

    If it's overheating, the first thing I'd check is the radiator coolant the make sure you have enough. After that, I'd replace the thermostat. This isn't too expensive (you should be able to get one at an auto parts store fairly cheap) and shouldn't be too hard to do (although that might vary depending on the car)- I've had this happen twice.

    If it's still overheating then I wouldn't know what to do. Although if you had to put some coolant in before, you might check again to make sure it's still there (i.e., hasn't leaked out).

    Ok first thing to do is check the coolant level, have you had an leaks or signs of leakage? Inspect all the water pipes, hoses and head gasket area for an water stains.

    The next step I would take is the remove the thermostat from the housing and inspect the rubber seal around the outside of it, sometimes this breaks up and blocks the pipes up. If this has happened you will have to remove a few pipes, give them a blow through to get the bits of rubber out and replace the thermostat. If the thermostat looks fine you can test its operation. Boil a kettle and pour the boiling water into a deepish container then pop the thermostat inside, you should see it open, if it doesn't its defective and must be change.

    If the thermostat is fine your next port of call would be to check the cooling fan, run the engine up and listen to see if the cooling fan kicks in (It makes a loud roar so its hard to miss), the cooling fan on my car kicks in at ~100 degrees. If yours doesn't kick in look in your owners manual at the fuse lay-out and inspect the cooling fan fuse, If blown replace. If the fuse hasn't blown you will have to inspect the wiring for a short/open circuit.

    They are the simple tests, if you have no leaks, thermostat is fine and the cooling fan works you will have to take it to your local garage. If you need any more help just drop me a PM!

    I saw this on a wiki page, but I couldn't find out what it was. What is a domination troll?

    If they are secrets, than they shouldn't be told. Unless if the person went public with it.

    Do Brock Lesnar and John Cena hate each other? I saw the referees trying to break up their brawl at a WWE match.

    Dude, wrestling isn't real. It's all a scripted show put on for the audience. Those guys write their fights before they even get on stage; many wrestlers have even come out and said that the winners of the fights are often determined beforehand. After they get out of the ring, I'm quite sure that they all have a good laugh and a beer together.

    I don't know but I'm pretty sure you can read next weeks script and figure out.
    maybe it's because we mod smart people and smart people tend to share a lot of the same characteristics.....

    No they don't, although Brock never carries himself as a likable person backstage.

    No you can't because..

    - The scripts are usually edited untill the last moment, this being the day of RAW. Mondays.
    - The script wouldn't even tell you if they hated each other, in character or irl.

    Srs question:

    Occasionally, the skin on my head and shoulders will start to tingle and it feels really good and then it goes numb for like 10 seconds. This is triggered by certain sounds, like some people's voices, loud chewing, etc. I asked my family and friends and they said they never experienced this before.

    I have no ****ing idea.

    Anyone know what this is?

    Just something that popped into my head a while back, but what is the exact physical cause of a headache? At least, what is going on in a physical sense with all the parts of your head that causes you to feel aches?

    I uh..I think I get that to, though its confined to my head. I sometimes actively seek out long videos with those kind of sounds for the pleasurable effect.

    I have no idea what causes it though

    This is what I found after a Google search:

    A headache or cephalalgia is pain anywhere in the region of the head or neck. It can be a symptom of a number of different conditions of the head and neck.[1] The brain tissue itself is not sensitive to pain because it lacks pain receptors. Rather, the pain is caused by disturbance of the pain-sensitive structures around the brain. Nine areas of the head and neck have these pain-sensitive structures, which are the cranium (the periosteum of the skull), muscles, nerves, arteries and veins, subcutaneous tissues, eyes, ears, sinuses and mucous membranes.

    Seems to make sense

    Haha. I get this as well. It happens to me when people explain things, especially when accompanied with the drawing of diagrams.

    It's when too much blood goes into your brain

    You know brainfreeze? If you don't, then you've never lived. Anyway, when you drink something cold, it causes the blood vessels in the roof of your mouth (in close proximity to the brain) to contract. When those blood vessels expand again, there is a sudden rush of blood that goes straight to your brain and creates that feeling that can be described as no less than living hell. Regular headaches are like that except not nearly as bad.

    You don't ask people how to be trained for this sort of thing. You're supposed to make your own training regimen. Do you think monkeys pay for personal training to make themselves lithe and powerful?

    If you don't know how to train yourself then you don't have it in you. Just give up now.

    Both of these seem to make a lot of sense. Thanks! I was mostly curious about the subject while I had a headache, but then I realized soon after that I really didn't know what caused headaches and such.

    Nearly half of your post count on SPPf is asking inane and ridiculous questions in this thread. Not trying to be funny, but You should really find something else to do with your time, or try to use Yahoo answers or something.

    That's the answer to this question.
