Ask a QuestionSearch for Salvage Yard Questions - Page 1 of 1


My step mom works at a salvage yard and when cars come in, employees siphon out the gas, filter it, and take it home. My dad and step mom use the gas and say it is perfectly fine. I am very skeptical on putting the gas in my car...is this gas okay to use?

How do you change the positive battery cable? Auto Zone said i can no longer buy them there, and I need to go to a salvage yard...is that true, or where can i buy one at?

I have a Nissan Versa SV, with the stock basic radio, in a salvage yard I found a Versa, same year, just with the upgraded radio with a full screen and Nav. Am I able to pull my radio out and swap them or would I need to purchase new wiring to make the swap possible?
