• Sydney - Any reasonably priced parking facilities close to Opera House?

    Have been advised city parking in Sydney is quite prohibitive. Or is there a better alternative, such as trains and buses, from the south. Would need to pay to park at a station too I imagine.

  • Know somewhere nice to stay within hour of Sydney and Cronulla?

    Visiting mid July for about a week. I usually like staying in Discovery Park cabins but none near there. Expect to visit Sydney city a few times in the week (Opera House and Zoo?) , but don't necessarily need to stay there. Any other suggestions? Will be driving from Melb.

    Found I have 2 bottles of old brake fluid in the garage; both Castrol types. Cannot recall how old they are but appears they have been opened but only a tiny bit used. Should I discard them or can they be used fir a little top up. Son's car is showing low on the master cylinder; just wish to make sure it gets to garage okay. No sign of any... show more
    Found I have 2 bottles of old brake fluid in the garage; both Castrol types. Cannot recall how old they are but appears they have been opened but only a tiny bit used. Should I discard them or can they be used fir a little top up. Son's car is showing low on the master cylinder; just wish to make sure it gets to garage okay. No sign of any leaks anywhere. Photo of the two bottles here. No idea which is the "newest" but guess at the Castrol Response Super Dot 4 "suitable for all DOT 3, DOT 4 and DOT 5.1 brake fluid applications. Would have been bought for a 4 cylinder vehicle; perhaps an old Camry. Son's car is a 2003 Holden Vectra. (I don't think he has been checking the fluid levels in the car as often as he should ...)

He inserted a dressing with cloves (really helped!) and script for mild antibiotic (have some antibiotic allergies). I purchased some oil of cloves myself today from the pharmacy / chemist, and starting applying it. Yes, yuck but at least no more painkillers today ... so far. My question is: Is it completely safe to keep using these oil of cloves?

    02 Holden Vectra, low 130,000kms. Well maintained Vehicle was running perfectly well previous weekend when I drove it. Next day son said running rough, smoke/steam so we had it towed home and out of town visiting friend replaced manifold ehaust with new (expensive) and gaskets. No sign of oil etc leaks. We turned it on this afternoon, sounds a bit rough, topped up radiator (overflow) water which was unusually low. White steamy smoke from rear exhaust. Engine warning light on in dashboard. Wondering about what next I should do. Not sure if we should drive it or not. Friend won’t be back for another week plus. Any suggestions? Car is only value at about $3,000 AU but it was in rather good condition, road worthy, maintained.
