  1. In the U.S., I used STA-BIL Small Engine Treatment (https://www.amazon.com/STA-BIL-22304-Engine-System-Cleaner/dp/B00NEG3K5O/) in my lawn mower. It cleans the fuel system. I could order it from Amazon U.S., but want to ask if there is a similar local product here I can get at a Ferrateria or garden store? Its not listed on Amazon Mexico. Thanks.
  2. Heard that the dispute over the La Floresta high-rise by the lake was resolved. Is this accurate? What do they plan to do with the bare-bones structure?
  3. Thank you Cedros and Mostly for the explanation. Do these debris or natural dams exist along the entire Chapala to Jocotepec corridor or are they mostly in the San Juan Cosala area?
  4. How do you check if a car was previously wrecked, stolen, the papers are fraudulent or license plates forged?
  5. Just 3-4 inches of rain did this. Imagine the impact of a severe rain event if it occurs here: Rossiglione, a town in Italy's Liguria province near Genoa, got 29.2 inches of rain in 12 hours over Monday and Tuesday... https://theweek.com/natural-disasters/1005714/a-town-in-italy-just-got-60-percent-of-its-annual-rainfall-in-12-hours
  6. How do I determine if a car I bought in Mexico is part of the Takata airbag recall? In the U.S., the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has a recall search tool (https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls) where I simply enter the vehicle ID #. Is there a similar tool in Mexico? Do dealerships in Guadalajara do the replacement/fix? And is there a way to find out if the fix was already done on my car by the previous owner? Thanks.
  7. Thanks for all the responses. Sounds like (no pun intended) south-side of the Carretera and possibly south-side of the Libramiento is quieter. GringoHombre- Yes, I noticed north of the Carretera is pricier and interesting that despite the noise, houses there command higher prices. Ferret- I'm assuming you are south of the Carretera?
  8. I'm looking to buy a house in or near San Antonio Tlayacapan, and I'm looking at houses in SAT village, La Floresta (eastern part, closer to SAT), and along the Libramiento. I've observed that homes on the mountain-side (north) of the Libramiento tend to get noise from heavy trucks using Jake Brakes (that "machine gun" or "jackhammer" noise). This seems to occur in the daytime, but I'm unsure how common at night. Generally, how early and how late does one hear Jake Brakes? Is it limited to business hours (8am to 6pm)? Is the noise less on the south-side of the Libramiento vs. the north-side? Can you hear Jake Brakes in La Floresta as well? Thanks.
  9. I believe its 2nd dose only, and only for Guad residents, correct? Do Chapala area residents qualify?
  10. Has anyone had a MRI done at the new Riberas Hospital (I think the correct name is Ribera Medical Center)? If so, what was your experience like? Thanks.
  11. I’m unable to determine if this app is malicious or not. However, just because an app is working well or the logo says Amazon, doesn’t mean the app is not malicious. It could be working well, but still collect sensitive data and install viruses in the background. I don’t know Rich. Perhaps someone who knows him could check with him and report back? I searched the Amazon App store, and surprisingly, did not find any Antivirus Apps there. Anyone know if there is a way to download the Amazon version of Live NetTV app (on to a laptop or phone/tablet) and run a virus scan?
  12. Is it the Live NetTV Android app, the Live NetTV Fire TV Stick app, or both that have issues?
  13. Given the level of community spread in Mexico, a bit too late I think. But if Delta mutates to something worse in another part of the world, it could delay its arrival by weeks or more.
  14. I have tiny ants that are in a bathroom electrical outlet and travel between the electrical outlet and the ceiling. I’ve read several posts on this site about ant issues and tried borax (acido borico) mixed with honey as bait, but they have no interest in the bait. Also tried borax with peanut butter, and then tried borax with sugar. They didn’t work either. Any idea what bait I can use for these little critters? If it helps, the bathroom where the ants are located is on the other end of the house from the kitchen and I don’t have ants in the kitchen, so appears food items might not attract them?
