If I got this right the fans should kick on when the engine has hit a preset temp. So it seems something is telling the fans the engine has hit that temp. Thats my best armchair guess. Id start looking for a sensor or switch in that system.
Socialism leads to communism. Not all that far apart. And to answer you question...no I'm not ok with the way the gov has been spending. And it goes back further than 4 years. But tied in with this college debt deal, a giant amount of gov spending goes to free stuff for the non working group...
A friend of mine has a AC business. Got a call to do a job and when he got to the house it was a 300k+ house and had a hummer and an escalade in the driveway. Single mom, 4 kids and no job. All free from the gov. and our pay checks. 300k house in my area is a damn nice house. Welcome to...
If they had state of the art coal plants its nowhere near as bad as it used to be but they don't. India is so bad they have bodies of water that have no fish and catch fire periodically. Yet America and our cars are the problem...BS.
My first thought is yes. 11 is getting low. And since it reads 14 when running that means your charging system is working. Go by auto zone or any auto parts store and have them test it. Its free. They can put a load on it with their tester and see whats going on.
This is not about pollution, its all about control. Like you said the simple math doesn't add up to being about pollution. If it was they would be all over countries like India and China. Those countries are about 50 years behind when it comes to pollution measures.
I hate to call it rubbing really, more of a ever so slight touch. Just enough to clean the dirt off the wheel well liner in a full turn of the wheel. But I did go to a 305/35/19 so that is prob the reason for that. I'm sure the 30s wouldn't touch.
That is odd. Best guess is maybe a bolt loosened up and a bushing is popping/slipping. Had a 17 gt that had a odd thump sound when hitting bumps and ended up being the top shock mount bolts loose. Odd yours is louder in reverse.
