Passenger Car Motor Oil (PCMO) - Gasoline Cars/Pickups/Vans/SUVs
Jump to new posts Re: Oil grade for a 1981 Honda Civic by bigt61 @ 28 seconds ago

Might be hardened valve seals - especially if it smokes more pulling away from traffic lights when warm. Give the Rotella a chance for a few thousand miles, fresh oil may help bring the seals back to life in time. After that, I'd recommend MaxLife

I wouldn't trust the bump stops to prevent it again, at some point you'll have a load or hit a dip with a pothole in it at speed and the tire will get up into wheel well again.

Per a previous thread, their dashboards are likely lit up as many gauges are backlit 24/7. This usually comes with an electric eye to automatically turn on the headlights, but the adjustment on that seems suspect by your anecdata.

In my 07 Accord, the dashboard is lit all the time, whether the DRL's or main lights are on. It's easy to forget.

Living in a big city it seems as if I see more early AM commuters on the roads with just their DRL's lit. Don't these people understand that drivers need to see your rear lamps as well? Are these people so oblivious to their surroundings that they do

Modern autos in the last few years practically emit flowers and baby bunnies compared with cars only a decade older. In some nasty urban environments there is real evidence that the exhaust from a new car is cleaner than the original air ingested.

We had a '95 with the 4.0 and it was fine with "universal" power steering fluid (not ATF). If you are particular about specifications, look for a PS fluid with one or more of the following Chrysler specs: MS-1872, MS-5931, MS-9602, or MS-1

IIRC the fluid spec is MS5931, I always used Valvoline i'm thinking it was the cheapest with a reputable name that met the spec. You should head over to jeepforum.com become a member and check out the XJ section. You can use me a reference !!!! same

CapriRacer has spoken! My own take, I'd run it, and keep an eye on it, of course. Tires scrape curbs, they account for that a little in design. The curb bumper is down by the rim flange though, and you don't have much of one there. When there, it
