How to fix this  - 
 
Here's a little Chevrolet HHR how to with all the needed parts numbers and tools.
 
The Chevy HHR uses a modern electrical distributorless ignition system, meaning that it does not utilize a distributor and spark plug wires, but instead a coil pack to deliver controlled electrical power to fire the spark plugs. This not only cuts down on parts needed, but makes for a much more efficient ignition system.

Chevrolet recommends changing your HHR's spark plugs every 100,000 miles. No harm will be done if you choose to do yours sooner. This article covers how to change your spark plugs in your Chevy HHR.

Exotic  - 
 
I had the chance to help out with this exotic beast this weekend. There's so many cool details on a Koenigsegg, here's a little article about how the center lock wheels work.
The Koenigsegg CCX (and Regera, Agera, Trevita, One:1 etc) use race-inspired center lock (CL) wheels much like the Porsche 911 GT3, F1, and Ferraris. Removing and installing these center locking wheels requires unique equipment and special care. I had a chance to visit a high end custom car design & build shop (Tom Argue Design) that was taking care of a gorgeous Black Koenigsegg CCX. They were replacing the tires so we got a glimpse into what it...

Get those dealer installed pinstripes off your new car.
Not everybody likes the look of pinstripes on their car, and you might be stuck with them if you purchased a used vehicle. Luckily, most modern cars have pinstrips that are just stuck to the top of the clear coat, and are fairly easy to remove. Please note: If you have painted-on pinstripes (ones that are literally paint under the clear coat), this removal method will not work. Preparation. The pinstriping and the surrounding area needs to be cle...
