How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a ’91 Lincoln Town Car with the 4.6-liter V8. While I was driving home the other day the accelerator seemed to slip past its normal position a little too far. From then on, it accelerates very slowly and will not kick into overdrive when the accelerator is depressed all the way to the floor. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Tom,

I own a 2006 F250 4x4 Ex Cab with a 6.0 L Diesel. What are your thoughts on the chip tuners such as Bully Dog and Super Chips? Are they worth the investment?

How to Make Your Car Last Forever: Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen

Dear Tom,

I own a ’02 Ford Focus that came with one key when I bought it (used). When I went to get a second key made I was told that they couldn't make a key for it because it had a “transponder” and I would need to get one from a dealer. This is expensive! Is this absolutely necessary or is there another way to get a key?

Rep. Higgins & Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation Announce $5 Million for Buffalo Harbor

Congressman Brian Higgins (NY-27) Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation (ECHDC) Chairman Jordan Levy announced the release of $5 million, secured through the New York Power Authority relicensing settlement agreement, toward a project to build the Buffalo Harbor Bridge

“For decades limited and disjointed access has kept people, business and opportunity away from the Outer Harbor,” said Congressman Brian Higgins.  “By providing a link between the City’s downtown core and our waterfront we are actually building a bridge to limitless opportunities to draw economic development, jobs, residential living, recreation and tourism into the region.”

Dear Tom,

I own a ’98 Dodge Neon with 97,000 miles. A few days ago while driving, I noticed that the battery light was on and all the gauges were going crazy (up and down). This happens only when the vehicle is in motion. I tested the battery and it’s good. What’s causing the problem?
