2023.06.08 20:39 TheMustardTigerBAAAM 2015 Equinox LT AWD - O2 Sensor 1 engine light. Replaced O2, wont clear engine. Car starts fine, but will rumble and turn off if left in idle. NO idea what is going on.

Have a 2015 Equinox. I got an engine light with o2 sensor 1 failure after replacing the same O2 sensor at my usual local mechanic. Tested the sensor and it's not defective or anything. Around this time the car began acting weird on startup. I can turn it over just fine, but if left idling before putting into gear it will eventually, 1-2 min max, begin to rumble around and then turn off/stall. It will do the same if I immediately put it into gear (reverse/Drive) and start driving. It'll start to rumble and try to stall/turn off within the first 500ft of driving but if I slam down the accelerator once or twice it'll come back to life, rev up, and then it's perfectly fine for the rest of the drive but will do it on any start up after even if the engine is warm. IT'S VERY WEIRD. This is my 4th vehicle, first Chevy, and have never experienced this nor has my usual mechanic even seen this issue.
Could it be O2 sensor related as part of the emission system? I've checked all fuses, plugged my computer in and shows only the O2 sensor error and nothing else. Up to date on all oil changes and basic engine work. Car has 136k miles on it and I usually throw in a fuel injector cleanse every 5-10k and like to run a tank or two of E85 (Flex Fuel model) to keep everything running smooth. Other than this it's been a super reliable car. Alternator and AC compressor went on me last summer but aside from new brakes last year as well, no major issues ever and i've had it since 80k.

any suggestions would be really great. My last resort will be the dealership where I'll be charged 4x what I usually do for anytype of service including oil changes, but i'd really like this issue to be fixed. Thanks.

2023.06.07 19:26 easttxtech Goodbye Kia Soul

Well I enjoyed my brand new Kia Soul that I bought in 2015. But it's time for it to go. It has 130,000 mi and it is on its second catalytic converter and it's burning oil like there's no tomorrow. At least a quart every thousand miles. I was told that this is acceptable by Kia and I find that to be complete hogwash. This brand does not care about its customers or make a quality product. Once this car burns up I'm just going to get rid of it. I need something reliable that doesn't burn through a $3,000 part every 3.

2023.06.07 12:49 andrew6123 Heads up on engine replacement

I have a 2015 Santa Fe Sport and I got my engine replaced about 5 months ago under the engine recall. I just wanted to give everyone a heads-up on the additional repair that I had to do. Within 2 months, the complete exhaust, fuel pump, and catalytic converter were replaced. 2 months after that I had to replace the exhaust manifold. I think all of these are due to the engine burning oil causing the whole exhaust system to fail.
In hindsight, it would have been cheaper for me to trade in the car and a new one. The total of repairs so far would have been equal to a good downpayment on a new car.

2023.06.06 18:15 FyrestarOmega Throwback - Ben Myers' Defense Opening Statement

Thought a refresher of the opening statement presented by Myers related the case he intends to present might be helpful, since membership has grown from about two dozen people on that day until now. Using Sky News because older live Chester Standard articles are not loading correctly, but the Chester Standard link is at the bottom.
This Sky News link would also take you to the prosecution opening statements if you continue to go backwards

Defence begins by saying 'all we have so far is a theory of guilt based firmly on coincidence'

Ben Myers KC has begun his opening statement, speaking in defence of Lucy Letby.
He begins by acknowledging to the jury how saddening the allegations are.
"It is difficult to think of allegations that could be more upsetting than these and it's difficult to think of allegations that strike harder at our desire to protect than these allegations," he says.
He says "the sympathy of everyone will rightly be with the families of the children involved in this case" and the defence is not here to "diminish" that.
He tells the jury it would be "easy for emotion to take the place of evidence" but says that would be "staggeringly unfair" to the defendant.
"There is a real danger that people will simply accept the prosecution theory of guilt," he tells the court.
"And that is all that we have so far. A theory of guilt, based firmly on coincidence."
Mr Myers tells the court blame should not be "heaped on that woman", while pointing at Letby, and says others may have made mistakes.
"Sometimes what happened was a genuine deterioration in the health of one or other of these children," he says.

'You won't get the answers simply looking at the woman in the dock'

Ben Myers tells the jury he is "barely touching" on the detail involved in this case today.
He says the defence's opening statement will not be as detailed as the four-day opening the prosecution has put forward. More detail will come later in the trial.
He says he will touch on "failings at the Countess of Chester Hospital neonatal unit that have nothing to do with Lucy Letby".
Letby was a "dedicated nurse", Mr Myers says, who "trained hard" to look after the babies at the unit and "in no way did she want to hurt them".
Letby "loved her job... cared deeply about the babies she looked after, and cared deeply for their families", the court is told.
"You won't get the answers to this case simply by looking at the woman in the dock now," he says.
"This is where she is six years after starting to face allegations like this. As you can imagine, that must be utterly gruelling for anyone."
Mr Myers says the jury "might want to keep the effect of that in mind" when they examine evidence in the case.
"Anybody who is approaching this as if it is any kind of done deal has got it very badly wrong," the court is told.
In the dock, Letby continues staring straight ahead.

Letby wrote 'I'll never have children or marry' in 'confession' note

The court is once again shown what - the prosecution says - was Letby's confession note.
But Mr Myers says these are the writings of an "anguished woman in despair" who is realising the enormity of what is facing her.
A line on the note, which is being shown to the court, says Letby has an "overwhelming fear... I'll never have children or marry... I will never know what it's like to have a family... despair."
He says the note does not "accurately reflect" what has happened, but was written by Letby while upset, who "poured her feelings onto paper as a way of coping".

'No evidence' these attacks took place, defence says

Defence KC Ben Myers is now addressing why a number of medical notes were found in Lucy Letby's possession following a search of her house.
He says she did not have them for a "sinister motive" but she was a person who "scribbled things down" and a person who "hangs onto bits of paper".
He then turns to the "coincidence" involved in the case.
"We say there is an assumption that someone is doing deliberate harm," he tells the court.
"There is no evidence of the actual events being alleged."
From using syringes to injecting air, tampering with bags of fluid or in some other way poisoning, physically assaulting children, or smothering them - the defence says there is no evidence that these attacks took place.
He returns to the case of Child E, whose mother - the prosecution said - walked in on Letby attacking her child.
Mr Myers says the evidence will not bear this out.
"The assumption of harm" and the assumption Letby is behind the harm has made the allegations "self-fulfilling".

Defence questions standard of care at Countess of Chester Hospital

Defence KC Ben Myers is now telling the jury there were shortcomings at the Countess of Chester Hospital that cannot be attributed to Letby.
"There is a question of whether this hospital should have been looking after all these children, and whether it did so to the required standard," My Myers tells the court.
"For a nurse in the neonatal unit, standing there when a child is unwell is unremarkable," he says.
"Her presence alone is now treated as sinister."

What the defence is asking the jury to consider

The defence KC tells the jury the evidence "may look daunting" to start with, but he says he will be asking them to consider five issues.
These are...
1. The birth condition of the baby.
2. Whether there were any problems in the health and care of the child leading up to the event we are considering. He says: "Things with babies like this can be unexpected... but we also say when you get down to the detail of the evidence it isn't always that clear and it isn't always unexpected."
3. Whether the prosecution expert medical evidence proves there was deliberate harm done.
4. Whether Letby was present at the time and what the evidence can establish about what she was doing if she was there.
5. If there were failings in care with the baby we are looking at, or at the unit as a whole.

'We are dealing with babies who are clinically fragile'

The defence says there were other events and "collapses" which took place when Lucy Letby was not present.
The court has been shown again a chart - first presented by the prosecution - which shows Lucy Letby was present at all 22 incidents involving the 17 babies mentioned in the indictment.
Defence KC Ben Myers says the chart does not show the "shortcomings in care, which may be the fault of others", nor does it show any other incidents which took place when Letby was not there.
"When we strip away all the surrounding detail, messages, Facebook searches, even amateur psychology, the case will come down to the medical evidence," he tells the jury.
The cause of death or deterioration in an infant is "not always clear" and there can be a "number of possibilities", Mr Myers says.
"Generally, we are dealing with babies who are clinically fragile, and their condition can change very swiftly."

Experts 'influenced by confirmation bias', says defence

Ben Myers KC is now returning to the five points that he is asking the jury to consider (see 12.59pm post) when deciding if Letby is guilty or not.
He asks the jury to "remember how quickly problems can develop" with neonatal children.
He tells the jury to listen out for any evidence that shows the unit at the Countess of Chester Hospital was "understaffed and overstretched".
He says experts can be influenced by "an overarching assumption that what has happened is a result of deliberate harm".
"The fact they are an expert does not mean this cannot happen," he says.
"Where there is no clear explanation for what has happened - and that can sometimes happen in medicine - there is a danger of an expert being drawn into an explanation of evidence that is influenced by the prosecution's theory."
He tells the jury this is called "confirmation bias".

'Doctors don't always have the answers'

The experts that will be called in the trial have "met as a group and considered their opinions jointly", defence lawyer Ben Myers KC tells the court.
He then tells the jury that the burden is not on the defendant to provide an explanation of the events that unfolded.
"Doctors don't always have the answers and nor do medical experts," he says.
"The fact that Ms Letby can't explain a particular event... does not mean she is responsible for it."
Letby remains "adamant" that she has done nothing to harm any of the children mentioned in the indictment.
Mr Myers is now turning to each of the children in turn.

Child A died as a result of 'suboptimal care' and 'lack of fluids', says defence

The defence accepts there is a "possibility" that Child A died as the result of an air embolus (an injection of air).
But Ben Myers KC says the defence does not accept on this count that it was the cause of death.
He says the care given to Child A was "suboptimal" and the infant collapsed either as a result of a "lack of fluids" or a result of the "various lines that had been put into him" and the potential they interfered with his heart rate.
The air found inside Child A can happen "post mortem".

'Nothing' to support injection of air as jury told to 'look at the practicalities'

Child B, Ben Myers KC tells the court, had been in a "precarious position from birth" and was born "blue and floppy".
He says there is "nothing" to support an injection of air, or Child B's airway being blocked.
"She had other episodes where she struggled to breathe after the time on the indictment here," he says.
Next, he moves to Child C. He tells the jury although he is moving through the cases quickly, he does not mean this to be "heavy-handed" or cause offence to the families involved but that he wants to give an overview of the defence's argument.
"We accept in this case," he says, it is a "theoretical possibility" that Child C was injected with air.
He tells the jury to "look at the practicalities of that".
Child C was born "very premature": "As a starting point, sadly, a baby like that will be vulnerable to a range of complications."
This includes being more vulnerable to infection, and Child C should have been at a more specialist unit, Mr Myers says

Absence of evidence 'does not convert it into evidence of guilt'

Child D experienced delays to her medical care and was "never able to breath unaided", the jury is told.
"She was not put on antibiotics when she should have been," Ben Myers KC says.
He says the evidence shows infection was more likely than an injection of air.
Moving to Child E - who the prosecution said was attacked in front of his own mother - Mr Myers says there was no evidence of an air injection and "no evidence of direct trauma".
"There is no clear explanation in his case of what happened," he tells the jury but says that is not a good enough reason to assume Letby was responsible.
He then moves to count six and count 15, which involved the attempted murders of Child F and Child L. The prosecution alleges they were both poisoned with insulin.
He says the absence of evidence "does not convert it into evidence of guilt".
The IV bag, which was allegedly spiked with insulin, was changed when Letby was not on shift. The sample that was analysed was taken from this bag, which Letby had not come into contact with, Mr Myers says.
"The prosecution are fixed to the theory that all is due to Lucy Letby," he says.

Defence continues to blame care at Countess of Chester Hospital

Letby faces three charges of the attempted murder of Child G. On 6 September 2015, the prosecution claims she was fed an excessive amount of milk and vomited out of her cot and onto a nearby chair.
Ben Myers KC, for the defence, says doctors say Child G was "born on the margins of viability".
"She was a high-risk baby with a history of abdominal distension and vomiting", the court hears.
The defence also says Child G had exhibited signs of infection.
Next, he says the case of Child H is "complicated by suboptimal treatment" that she received at the beginning of her life. Letby faces two charges of attempted murder, which took place on consecutive nights.
Mr Myers says this is "another example of suboptimal care" at the Countess of Chester Hospital.
"What happened at the hospital had nothing to do with Lucy Letby. Despite all of that, she was there," he says.
Child I - who it is claimed Letby tried to kill four times before "succeeding" - experienced "a series of ongoing clinical problems that may well have been inevitable given her extreme prematurity".

'The Countess of Chester Hospital was well out of its depth'

Defence lawyer Ben Myers KC says "the Countess of Chester Hospital was well out of its depth" when it came to treating Child J, who Letby is accused of murdering.
He said the hospital delivered "inadequate care" to the child, who was born with a perforated and necrotic bowel.
Nothing, Mr Myers says, can link Child J's collapse to anything Letby did.
In the case of Child K, Letby is accused of doing nothing to help as the infant's oxygen levels dropped - a consultant who looked at the child found her breathing tube was dislodged.
"Ms Letby does not agree she has done that, nor was she seen to do that," Mr Myers tells the jury.
He disputes claims from the prosecution that the newborn was sedated and couldn't move.
"We say she wasn't and she could," he says.
He says the child "shouldn't have been" at the Countess of Chester Hospital.

Screaming child 'more likely due to hunger' than air injection, according to the defence

Moving on to Child L and Child M, twin boys who survived.
Defence lawyer Ben Myers KC says "blame is being put on Ms Letby because there is no obvious alternative".
He continues: "The mere fact she is there when something happens is almost being used as an explanation for it happening."
In the case of Child N - for whom Letby faces three counts of attempted murder - he says the fact the child screamed for 30 minutes was more likely due to "hunger" than being injected with air.
One expert, the prosecution said previously, said he had never seen a neonate scream for such a long time.
Mr Myers says Child N should also not have been at the hospital.

'Signs of infection' in one triplet, and air found in another a 'natural occurrence'

There were "signs of infection" in one of the two triplets who died at the Countess of Chester Hospital, the defence has said.
Child O was found with "severe liver damage", and both he and his brother, Child P, died within the first week of their lives.
Ben Myers KC, representing Letby, says the liver damage in Child O can be attributed to CPR.
Meanwhile, any air that was identified in Child P post-mortem is a "natural occurrence" that happens after death.
"The build-up of air found in the child can be attributed to the air flowing into the baby for respiratory support," the jury is told.
"Once he collapsed it isn't clear why he didn't respond to resuscitation but that doesn't go so far as to show this was inflicted harm."
He addresses the final case, that of Child Q and says a "poorly functioning bowel is probably what led to him being unwell and vomiting".

'Where was she? What was she doing?'

After running through each individual case, Ben Myers KC, for the defence, turns to "Ms Letby and what her presence means at that time".
"It's a simple question, where was she, what was she doing?" he asks the jury.
But he tells them it is "important not to guess" because the evidence "cannot pinpoint" exactly where she was at any given moment.
"She can hardly be expected to remember," he says.
"We say there are many occasions when Lucy Letby was not there."
Some events took place when Letby wasn't there, but he says the prosecution has been selective with the events it has chosen.
Even when Letby was present "that doesn't get close to proving what the prosecution allege". He says it would be unfair to "treat presence as mere evidence of guilt".

Letby a 'young nurse who built her life around the neonatal unit'

Ben Myers KC describes Letby as a young nurse with no immediate family commitment and someone who "had built her life around the neonatal unit" and thus was willing to be called in at short notice.
"Someone in that position, in that role... is more likely to be there when deterioration happens, but that doesn't mean she made it happen," he says.
Letby will not always be able to recall specific details about children or events.
"In that regard, she is like any other witness in this case," Mr Myers says.
Regarding the medical treatment given at the neonatal unit, he says: "Nobody is going to expect perfection day in day out."
He says there were "problems with the way this unit performed that had nothing to do with Lucy Letby".

Hospital was 'downgraded': 'To blame Letby is unfair and inaccurate' - defence

Ben Myers KC tells the jury that there are other examples of "suboptimal treatment" within the Countess of Chester Hospital that are "legitimate targets of criticism".
The prosecution has "consistently" highlighted how some babies recovered once removed from Letby's orbit.
Yet the defence says: "Their improvement coincided with removal from the Countess of Chester Hospital which could not deliver, we say, on some occasions the care that was necessary or the expertise for some of the children it looked after."
Mr Myers says that blaming Letby for this is "unfair and inaccurate".
The Countess of Chester had a "lack of technical medical skills", accepted babies with too high a level of care need, and on occasion was "too busy".
He points to the fact that the hospital was "downgraded" by a clinical watchdog, and redesignated to a level one. He says the hospital "could not provide care at the level it did".

Letby 'became a target of blame' amid pressure to find explanation for high infant mortality rate

In the case of Child K, a consultant became concerned about the correlation between the presence of Letby and the rise in sudden collapses.
But Ben Myers KC says this became "self-serving and self-fulfilling" and there was evidence for his concern.
He says she "became a target of blame and wrongly so".
"If others have failed to provide appropriate care or the unit is too busy or not appropriately staff you may agree that creates a situation in which things can go wrong... mistakes made, records not kept," he tells the jury.
He says there was "pressure to find an explanation" behind the spike in infant deaths at the unit.

Defence concludes its opening statement

Amid a final call for the jury to consider the evidence, Ben Myers KC concludes his opening statement by saying: "This whole case is a complex case, it is not straightforward.
"And in that dock is a young woman who says this is not her fault."

2023.06.06 04:45 abrbbb Kia Forte5 blinking engine light (P0420)

I was on a long trip today and suddenly my engine light started blinking. I don't know much about cars but I immediately pulled over to the nearest exit. The code was a p0420 which seems weird to me to go from 0 to blinking... I saw that the oil was very low so I filled it with 3 quarts of 5W-30 from a nearby gas station. But the code didn't change.
I got a motel room and I'll drive to a mechanic tomorrow.
Is it possible my catalytic converter just blew?? How unsafe is the car to drive? How quickly could it get fixed? I really need to get to where I'm going so I'm quite nervous.
Car is a 2015 Kia Forte5 hatchback with ~100k miles.

2023.06.02 13:34 Crygun22 I need financial advice for a car and college

Hi, I just blew the engine on my 2012 Chevy Equinox, and we cannot find a replacement motor for the car that’s in decent shape, so I was told my best bet is to just buy a new car. I want an SUV, but my dad says I should get a older car since I’m going to college this fall and need to pay for that. However, If I’m gonna get a new car I want one that’s bigger so I feel safer and newer so it’ll be more reliable and last longer. But SUVs are more expensive and I only have about $6,000 in the bank. Im going to sell my car that I have now for about $1,500, but I was wondering if I should listen to my dad and get and older car or just get myself a newer (like 2015) SUV?

2023.06.01 20:35 theentirekitchensink 2019 Subaru WRX randomly looses power/stalls when it’s hot outside

I have a 2019 Subaru WRX with 65K miles on it. It has a stage 2 Cobb tune, a custom exhaust, and no catalytic converters. I recently had my fuel pump replaced as part of Subarus recall on the low density fuel pumps. Now when it’s hot outside 85+ degrees it’ll loose all power and start to stall when I shift up or down anywhere between 2nd-4th gear. I’m assuming it’s fuel related, air intake related, or it needs to be re-tuned… but I have no idea. If anyone could provide some insight I’d appreciate it. Thank you!

2023.05.31 22:03 Itchy-Sound-7566 2014 Chevy Cruze 2LT Sedan 4D/ 4-Cyl, ECOTEC, 1.4T

Hey Guys and Gals! I am having an issue with my Chevy Cruze's catalytic converter. I was quoted $1,400+ to have it fixed but I am a college student so I DEF don't have that kind of money. Are there any websites or dealerships in the 37724 area that will help me cut down that price? I don't mind changing it myself but I don't know where to start or what specific one will fit this vehicle. I love this car so I want to try to keep it alive for as long as possible. Any ideas?
Edit: I am also open to ordering the converter online; if you know any reputable sites please let me know! :D

2023.05.31 16:30 anonymess94 What if Legends of Runeterra was a physical game?

What if Legends of Runeterra was a physical game?
So, this isn’t necessarily a custom card idea as much as it is an entire game design overhaul to make LoR work on tabletop, but I will include some custom reworks for existing cards to show how they can transfer over to paper.
This is just for fun and I’ve had the idea in my head for a while, so wanted to share with this community for feedback/thoughts/critique/encouragement. Without further ado…

The Concept

I do love LoR and have been playing since launch, however my interest has waned in recent months with certain frustrating metas (Azirelia, Kai’Sa, Bandle City, and Bard to name a few). More importantly, I’m a ‘Vorthos’ player above all and I love the world Riot has been developing through LoR cards, so hyper-competitive metas have never been my bag. I’m more about making decks that are thematic/fun to play, so it’s a pain always hitting the same super-optimised decks over and over again in matchmaking.
I recently got into Magic: The Gathering’s Commander EDH format and was instantly hooked. Issues with WoTC as a company aside, the format is probably the only way I can enjoy MtG’s core gameplay as the sheer variety from a 100-card singleton deck can’t be beaten and balances out the limitations of the lands-as-mana system.
So this got me thinking – what if I could combine my favourite aspects from Commander with LoR to make it translate to the physical tabletop?
Some people have tried already to make LoR work in a paper format, but struggled mostly down to the number of digital-first mechanics that wouldn’t translate well:
· RNG (Make it Rain, Traps/Boons)
· Keyword generation (Viktor upgrades, Pantheon, The Arsenal)
· Non-specific created card pools (Ferros Financier, Conchologist)
· No ‘graveyard’ as such
· Champion spell-swapping and level-up tracking
· Persistent damage
Some of these definitely wouldn’t work on paper, however, if playing MtG has taught me anything, it’s that some mechanics are completely possible, even if they’re a bit unwieldy.
· Persistent stats/damage – MtG uses +1/+1 counter mechanics all the time (tracked with physical counters or dice), and no matter how many card game design threads tell newbie TCG designers to avoid counters, the biggest card game in the world uses them so I think players can handle it…
· Created cards – MtG also utilises Token creatures and I’ve found it’s no problem to have a stack of token cards on hand when playing just in case
· The biggest case I can make for LoR in tabletop is that there is NO board limit in MtG, meaning in a Commander game, players could end up with 10+ creatures on board all with counters and dice stacked on top to track stats – it’s ridiculous but it’s manageable
The biggest lightbulb moment for me is in Commander’s signature mechanic – the Command Zone.
For those that don’t know, a Commander is what determines your deck’s colour composition in MtG – it’s any ‘Legendary’ creature in the game, which exists outside your main deck in a special zone. You can play it at any time you can afford the mana cost, and when it dies, it can be returned to the Command Zone at a stacking tax of 2 extra mana the next time you want to summon it.
Aside from dictating which colours you can include in your deck, Commanders often form the synergistic backbone of your deck’s strategy, which in a selection of 99 single cards from ANY set in Magic’s history can involve some really unique interactions and combos.
With this in mind, I’d like to now introduce my proposal for a tabletop-friendly ruleset for Legends of Runeterra:

The Rules

What’s the same:
1) Your deck consists of 40 cards chosen from among 2 different regions (or the card pools specified by the Origins of Runeterra Champions).
2) Play goes back and forth, with players taking turns to play cards or declare attacks, and the Attack Token swapping between players each round.
3) Each round start, players gain 1 Mana Gem (physical card that is turned 90 degrees like land in MtG), up to a maximum of 10 – at round end, any unspent mana is converted into Spell Mana (maximum of 3) that can be used for spells or Equipment only.
4) In the basic format, players have a Nedus with 20 health, and when this is reduced to 0, they lose the game. If a player ever tries to draw a card from their deck at round start ut has no cards left, they lose the game.
5) Damage is persistent across units, which is tracked through either dice or counters – when a unit’s health reaches 0, it is killed and removed from play into a discard pile (where all killed/destroyed/played/discarded cards go)
6) Created cards are obliterated (removed from the game) when they leave play
7) Most keywords work the same and can be tracked with tokens if granted/given (especially for negative effects such as Vulnerable/Frostbite)
What’s New:
1) Champions now exist outside of your deck in the ‘Base’ – this evokes League of Legends and the Command Zone from MtG
a. You can only have 1 copy of a Champion in your base, and up to 2 different Champions based on your chosen regions/origins.
b. Each Champion has 2 sides for their Level 1 and 2 forms, with Level 3 (Ascended) forms coming as separate cards.
c. Level-up progress can be tracked using counters below your Base area – when Champions level you flip them to their Level 2 side and no longer need to track.
d. Each Champion’s signature/champion spell is a single card placed beneath the champ, and can only be played when the champion is itself in play.
e. When a Champion dies and is returned to the Base, you cannot play it again that turn. When you play a Champion spell, you cannot play it again in the same turn.
f. Each time you summon a Champion, you grow your ‘Respawn Tax’ by 1 – if this increases past your Champion’s cost, you must pay the difference in extra mana – since all Champs can now be played exactly on curve, this is specifically to limit how often players can play low-costed champs in a game so there is still some strategy to when you summon them.
[i.e. Example: You summon Zoe turn 1, her Respawn goes to 1, then she dies and you summon again the following turn, Respawn goes to 2. When she dies again, she will now cost 2 mana.]
g. A Champion can be recalled into your hand, which means they can be played as normal (this can be a work-around for the Respawn Tax), or sent to your ‘discard’ to be revived by a card effect.
h. If you wish to include 3 Champions in your Base, they must ALL be from the same region and you must have only cards from that region in your deck (this is to allow mono-region combos like Sun Disc).
i. IF you want to include other Champions outside of these restrictions, you can include them in your main deck as a 1-of, which acts essentially like a follower and cannot level up or have a signature spell (but is still counted as a Champion) - this rule needs some work I think…
2) Fleeting cards now exist in an area beside your deck, similar to exiled cards in MtG – they don’t contribute to your maximum hand size of 10 and are sent to the discard pile at round end. This is to make their ‘fleeting’ status easy to track for all players.
3) Invoke still pulls from a limited set of Celestial cards, but you can now only have 1 copy of a Celestial in hand/play at a time (this is to limit having multiple copies of every Celestial printed and is thematic to the idea that you’re borrowing the power of specific Aspects) – to compensate, some of the cards have been buffed.
4) Allegiance effects require players to reveal the top card of their deck and check for its region.
5) Predict takes the bottom 3 cards of your deck, and once you’ve made your choice, the other cards are shuffled back into the deck and the chosen one placed on top.
6) Lurk is tracked outside the deck using an ‘Emblem’ card you can place counters on to track the current Power buff – when Lurking, reveal the top card of your deck to check for Lurk.
7) Daybreak/Nightfall, Reputation, Flow, and other threshold effects are tracked with ‘Emblem’ cards too.
8) Most cost-reduction effects are now temporary/conditional so there’s no need to track whether a specific card in hand has a reduced cost.
9) Hand/deck buffs are now removed and replaced by ‘grant the next unit you summon’ type effects.
10) Boons/Traps are removed for now and need to be reworked…
11) Coins still stack in hand, but specify in the effect how they should be spent.
12) Landmarks are now played in a separate row below your units – up to 6 mad – this is to incentivise greater use of landmarks in general decks since they no longer fill a unit slot on the board and work like Enchantments in MtG (countdown effects can be tracked using dice).
13) Players can have a sideboard from which they can swap some cards between games – this is more of a play format thing.

Reworked Card Concepts

Here are some examples of reworked cards to fit the tabletop format:

In terms of new designs for the cards, I am aiming to introduce greater synergies for some archetypes in other regions (Reputation, Flow, Plunder, Coins) more multi-region cards beyond Weaponmasters and Yordles, new sub-types (Beast, Elemental) and grow the prevalence of mechanics like Impact, Attune, and Brash in earlier cards in need of a rework.


I think that covers everything I was thinking. Obviously there is still some work to be done on these rules, but my plan is to print some cards, get some decks together and test it out with friends!
I might post an update once things have been tried out and I refine the rules a bit, as well as share some of my custom reworks of existing LoR cards for the new format.
If you have any thoughts on this, let me know down below as I’m keen to hear feedback from the Reddit community!
Finally, it goes without saying that Legends of Runeterra and Magic: the Gathering are the properties of Riot Games and Wizards of the Coast respectively and I have no affiliation with either and will not be benefitting financially from any of this – it’s simply a fan project for my personal enjoyment with my gaming group.

2023.05.30 21:45 AustonsCashews Emissions System Problem (Canada)

So about a month ago I first got this warning pop up (2018 ridgeline). After reading online a bit people said that it’s most likely a problem with the fuel injections and not the catalytic converter or other emissions system components. So I put a bottle of injector cleaner in and sure enough the problem went away. Until today anyway and the warning is back. Apparently there was a recall for the injectors for the pilot and ridgeline in the states. But not one in Canada? I can only seem to find warranty / recall information about American customers. Has anyone in Canada had this problem? Thanks!

2023.05.27 08:00 hallow_pumpkin Could you guys help me with my smog check and catalytic converter problem, please?

Hi guys! This is my first-ever Reddit post! I am a broke college student in California, and I seriously need your advice. I haven't used Reddit before, so I am not sure this is the right place to ask... But please help me.
My car is a 2015 Honda Accord. When I was about to renew my vehicle registration, I got a notice that I needed to get a smog check to proceed with my new registration, which is due in August. I went to the smog shop, and they told me that they can't do the smog check until I get the error code cleared by fixing the catalytic converter.
About 4-5 months ago, I got my check engine light (CEL) on. The mechanic nearby my home told me that there is a problem with the catalytic converter and explained to me that there are two parts in the catalytic converter and he was not sure which part is the problem. Then, he goes "You may need to replace one of them or both in the worst case." The price of parts was approximately $1500-$2000 at that time to fix both, which was too expensive for me. So, I didn't fix it and continued to drive my car until now. The CEL turned off by itself automatically (I didn't do anything) while I was driving about 1-2 months after it initially turned on, and it is still off right now. No problem with driving. NO CEL on right now.
Back to the present, I went to the same mechanic after the smog guy told me about the errors (the mechanic's office is literally next to the smog guy), and he called the dealership parts store to order my parts, and they said it is back-ordered right now and not sure when it will be back. The approximate prices for both parts of catalytic converters were approximately $3200. They said I can get my parts in 3-4 months if I am lucky but it can take up to 6-9 months in the worst case. Plus, the mechanic told me I have to visit his office regularly to check for the availability of parts.
This is a ridiculous situation for me that I may have to spend $3200 unexpectedly to get a smog check and renew my registration, and even I have to wait that long while asking my mechanics to check up on the parts regularly. Another problem is if I can't get my parts until August, I have to submit the PNO form due to failure of registration, and I can't drive my car for a whole year... Please help me.
Here are my main questions: 1. I did a little research, and I noticed showing error codes doesn't necessarily mean I have to replace my catalytic converter. Does that mean my mechanic is lying to me? 2. My friend gave me advice that he can clear the error codes with his OBD2 scanner, let me drive another week, see if the error codes come back (he said if it comes back, I need to replace the catalytic converter), do a smog check if the error codes don't come up, and make sure to do warm-up & drive cycle before getting a smog check. What do you guys think about it? Can it let me pass the smog check? 3. And, he also told me that you can check which part of the catalytic converter is not working with the OBD2 scanner, so I don't have to end up paying for two parts of catalytic converters... Is that true? 4. Would there be any other plan to handle this situation?
To be honest, I can willing to pay $3200 to fix my car and drive again. I just don't want to spend it if I can avoid it. Most importantly, if I can get my parts on time before submitting the PNO form, I would pay for it...
Ultimately, my goal is to pass a smog check and get new registration with minimal cost. It would be best if I can avoid the replacement of catalytic converters. But if I have to replace it, can I request other repair shops to use OEM or aftermarket parts?
Thank you for reading the post...
