Do you even need to jack it up to drain the oil ? With my car, the sump plug is also at the front of the sump (but vertical). I just lay on the ground in front of the car, push a pan under the engine, reach under to undo the sump plug, and let it dr

Just use 5w20 synthetic , a 0w20 is synthetic by default a 5w20 synthetic will give near indentical results unless it gets below a certain temperature . If anything the 5w20 version of a oil is more shear stable and will have lower noack volatility

I have to replace the carpets in a low income rental property. In most of these places, they use cheap carpet installed without padding and stapled down rather than using tack strips. This is done because low income tenants destroy carpet, and there

Tower of power 115 Mercury on a Glastron CV16. My parents bought the boat the summer after I moved away from home from Sampson's Marine in Winnipeg. I still have the receipt somewhere. They paid less than $3,000 for it including the trailer in 1975.

My car is rated 28 city. I'd be lucky to get 20mpg having a little fun. I'd also be lucky to get 25mpg city driving the most conservative as actually possible.

Pulled from 2011 Camry LE 2.5 liter. These filters sure look a lot better than the P1 model. Perhaps the Classic model would look similar after service.

Do you know when your spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and distributor rotor were replaced? Often a vehicle manual will state that those items are good for 100,000 miles, but I find that they are more likely to last 60,000 miles.

Of your options I would choose to use PYB every year, number 2. I'm not a three-month-three-K-er but three years on a crankcase of oil doesn't sit well with me.

I have a Ford 4.6 with a Trilogy supercharger (Roots-type, based on Eaton 112). I will push it occasionally when I drive it, but I only drive this car 1,000 - 2,000 mi. / yr., 3-seasons. I normally use 5W30 oil. Which strategy do you recommend ? 1.

Would love to see Pennzoil Ultra 0W20 at a local Canadian Tire, would be nice if the sale price would be under $35 per 5L Jug. Would be great if they got Amsoil back instead of Royal Purple. Castrol I wouldn't purchase at all.

Dr. Tranny is nothing short of amazing. Definitely give it a shot if nothing else works on that shudder. Mercon or Maxlife with Dr. Tranny is solid gold in Ford transmissions that call for Mercon.
