      Hi Bisco, You had given some answers previously regarding the engine failure on a 2012 Prius V in the Seattle area. The car had the cold soak rattle a handful of times from 1/17 to 9/19 when the engine finally threw a rod. The head gasket leak wasn't diagnosed until late in 2018. I watched the videos from Gasket Masters on the cold soak rattle. Do you have an idea why the symptoms might be so infrequent.

        the cold soak rattle is kind of generic. it can happen on startup in cars with a good head gasket. but it can also be a symptom of a headgasket beginning to deteriorate. you have to do immediate diagnosis to prevent possible damage

        that is my open EVSE project kit. back in the day, there was a guy selling parts and instructions for $400. which was considered cheap at the time.

      Hi! Someone mentioned that you were the downhill expert. Is there any place to figure out what the maximum coasting speed for a Prius (2006) would be at different hill grades? Specifically, at a 4% grade (moderately steep) and 6% grade (pretty steep).

      Thanks for anything you can give me-- even if to say that there isn't any such beast (place to find this info).
