    Top most photo are the OEM headlights. Just replaced them with DEPO aftermarket ones, and DEPOs don't fit exactly like the OEM ones do. Is there anything I can add to the edges that will seal off large gaps between the headlight and the body, if--after fiddling with it some more--I find I...

    My sister bought a used Toyota Avalon that had some heater problems. Flushing the heater core didn’t help, so I continued troubleshooting the problem.
