What a find for him, well done! 5.4 or 4.6? Bet it just needs a little TLC to be a great vehicle. I'm glad the woman has gotten past the grief enough to be able to let the truck go.

Honda actually recommends changing the filter every other oil change. Filters take some miles to begin filtering efficiently. I just did a UOA after 2 oil changes and 15k miles on a Fram xg6607 and there were no signs of filter trouble. Seems like

Cool story? Want to reduce engine temps? Clean the engine of debris and grass around the cooling fins. Blow out the cooling fins with compressed air. Running a synthetic 5W30 or 10W30 motor oil has been shows to lower engine temps 5-10 degrees over

My next pistol is the Kel-Tec 32ACP. Do a youtube search and you will find a couple women videos. Noticeably tamer than the .380 and a million bad guys have fallen from that caliber, especially in Europe. There's a Kel-Tec board to talk guns also. S
