"Free Stuff"?

Has anyone here signed up for this? All kinds of "free samples", etc.?

Do you have to file a return?

If you are retired, maybe you can skip filing a tax return!

Check the instructions in IRS Form 1040 -- Chart A. I think it was on page 6 or 7. Last year, we found out that we didn't have to even file federal or state income tax returns. I [more]

Re: Engine Light

Yup - as I suspected. The dealer checked the codes (free) and it told him "misfire on cylinder 4" (from moisture in my gas, no doubt), which then corrected later, but the light stayed on.

No problems found. Light off. Back on the [more]

Engine Light

When I started up our P T Cruiser in the garage this morning, the car ran a bit rough, but soon smoothed out and it has run fine ever since. However, the engine light came on and has stayed on -- not flashing, just steady yellow.

We have a septic system here, but maybe this would work there, too.
