It Never Rained On Cincinnati (Street)

It Never Rained On Cincinnati (Street)

Courier Express February 28 1966

  COVERED STREET - Did you ever hear of Cincinnati Street? It is a cobblestone thoroughfare, 1,900 feet long extending from Ohio and Michigan almost to South Street alongside the Buffalo River (and connecting directly to Ohio St. near Mackinaw) It was Buffalo's only "covered" street. Now it is bared to the sun, moon, weather and sky as the work of demolishing the  New York Central and Ohio St. warehouse progresses.  Like the grimy wreckage of it's roofing and the great loading docks it traversed, Cincinnati St. bespeaks of days when this was the busiest place in Buffalo, and of a freight empire long gone.

Dear Tom,

I own a 2007 Buick Lucerne. During humid mornings or evenings moisture accumulates on the windows as soon as I start the car. Activating the defroster does no good. If I put the defroster on high blower and the heat on high, then eventually the windshield will clear. At times even the rear window will fog up. What’s up with this?

Dear Tom,

I own a 2001 Chevy S-10 with 156,000 miles. When I start the truck it sounds likes a lifter is stuck. After warming up, the truck seems fine except for the oil pressure, which moves from 40 psi to 80 psi. What is causing the pressure to move around so much?

Dear Tom,

I own a ’95 Olds Auroa V8. The injectors are leaking gas and flooding the cylinders, and they seem to be stuck open. What would cause this? What’s the best course of action? As soon as the key is on, it pumps out gas. Thanks for your help.

Dear Tom,

My 2004 Olds Bravada smells hot … really hot. I keep putting in more antifreeze and it seems to disappear (I don't see any wet spots under the vehicle). The overflow keeps emptying, as well as the radiator. Please help!

Dear Tom,

I own a 2010 Infiniti G-37 coupe. The tires were fine until it got cold outside. Now the tire pressure monitoring system indicates that the tire pressures are low. The tires look fine to me.
