Interesting. I guess I'd always assumed the indicators were more of a screeching noise when you applied the brakes. Learn something every day. It's certainly worth a shot - it is easy enough to check.

The situation you describe would dump the waste heat about 18 inches ahead of the air intake you hope to cool. The AC condenser sits in front of the car radiator, so that heat interferes with the water cooling efficiency. (The thought is that AC pe

Nothing "low-end" about the Napa filter. It is a very good, robust filter (just not a premium pricepoint filter).

Any system needing massive tax breaks to survive in the market just transfers the excess cost to the middle class taxpayer. That's "OK" though, there's always more money to extort.

I would check brake pad thickness. Sounds to me like the brake pad wear indicators are making the noise...telling it's time for brake job. It could very well not be pads but I would start there.

Absolutely NO NEED to change that oil unless it was highly contaminated with water. Its likely easily good for 3 years. What do you think that 0.3% Ca is for!! The oil itself is very stable at normal temps.

Look for: Bad thermostat, keeping the engine from warming up, or bad O2 sensor, giving improper info to the ECU, causing rich running. A modern vehicle running correctly should not put anywhere near that much fuel into the crankcase.

My Subaru engine had two full marks. One for normal and one higher up for very hot. It was attributed to crankcase expansion and oil.
