turning the engine off when the transmission is in drive when the vehicle is stopped will not harm it in any way. Turning the engine off and turning the key all the way to the lock position if that is physically possible when the car is moving in drive can result in aan accident and serious damage but most modern cars have an interlock which prevents the key from being turned to the lock position unless the transmission selector is in park or in some cases neutral. Just remember that if you turn it off with the selector in drive you will not be able to start it again until the selector is either in park or neutral - for safety's sake the neutral safety switch locks out the starter unless it is in one of those two positions.

Are you using four-wheel-drive in the Jeep on roads / parking lots with good traction? Don't do that! "Part time" four-wheel-drive systems have a simple transfer case splitting the power between the front and rear. They should only be used when the road surface is slippery enough that the wheels will lose traction. Wheel slip is required to prevent exactly what you are feeling in your Jeep. Your family sized SUV probably has a "full time", or "All wheel drive" system. In that drivetrain, a more sophisticated center differential replaces the transfer case, and allows all four wheels to spin at different speeds if required. Keep the Jeep in Two-High unless you really need the four-wheel-drive. You can damage the vehicle, otherwise.

Take the Jeep out of 4 wheel drive when you are on pavement or something will break. And do not put it back in until you are driving on snow or mud. On sharp turns you are forcing the outside tire to slide around a larger diameter circle than the inside tire. In 2 wheel drive they can turn at different speeds so there is no problem. In 4 wheel drive the wheels lock up, which gives you excellent traction but on dry pavement you already have traction,

None at all... I have a 08 Mazda CX-7 along with an Aston Martin Vantage and i know in the Mazda i can be driving along and turn it off, just gotta stick it in neutral before starting it back up. I have not tried this in the Aston Martin for obvious reasons lol Browse - Upload - Chat --- Tuned Exotics & Show Cars TunerSpotter.com

turning off? by turning the key to the off position? Pretty bad, since your steering wheel lock will engage and you will suddenly find yourself unable to steer.

I take it that you did not know that the property was foreclosed on. Usually when that happens your lease is no longer valid and they usually ask you to move. If you are going to sue, go to a Real Estate attorney and tell them and let them know all the specifics. Get everything in writing before you go to the attorney. You need the police report stating that the ac unit was stolen. You need the newspaper clipping or a paper showing the property was foreclosed on, your lease, you also need to write to the bank your complaint of no ac. Get it where it is certified and you know that it was delivered, this way you know that they recieved your complaint since stating it over the phone holds no grounds in peoples opinions in court. I would also look for a new place to stay, I know people have told you this before, but, if you are having troubles with this who knows what else may happen and the time restraint it will take it will take to get things done. Also, look in the lease and it should say something about bankruptcy and foreclosure. The residental lease for NC has something about what you are allowed somewhere in the lease. I hope this helps and also when sueing include your electric bill costs, since I am sure that they have went up and also your son's medical bills. I hope things work out and this helped some.
