Well right now, the TR Test, good value and positive reviews is what sold me on these RT43's. Though I did like the G/Y ACT's, their cost(even with G/Y's $80 rebate & Free shipping) was still more than I want to spend on a 14 year old vehicle.

The old 4.3 V6 was basically a 350 sbc with 2 cylinders missing. There is 2 crankshafts available, one has a journal for every connecting rod called the even fire crank. The other crankshaft looks like a sbc crank with two connecting rods per jou

Here's The Fast Lane Car, a site that I enjoy! This is only for the 2014 Accord Hybrid but, I don't imagine that the 2015 is much different. And of course, reliability is still unknown on any thing that's new! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W7hpKIM

Thanks for the replies. After thinking about it more I feel, as many here have said, that they will be worn out before they are too old anyway. I figure Tire Rack buys in huge volume since they always seem to have things in stock all year round that

So my dad just traded in his 2013 Ford Fusion hybrid, had it for 51 weeks, put on 42k miles. Just traded it in for a fully loaded 2015 Honda Accord hybrid. Anybody heard much about these Accord hybrids yet or still just too new?

My front crank seal leaks a little and its getting the belts dirty. It requires removing the radiator and a whole lot of work to replace a $5 oil seal. If this Oil Saver stuff works, why go to the trouble of tearing the car apart? I do have the seal

You would be hard pressed to find a car owner at a local drag strip that does not block the oil filter by-pass. I asked one owner why he does that; "Are you not worried about your main and rod bearings if for some reason the filter gets plu

The car is worth what it costs to replace it. That said, we got rid of our integra with 188k and a stellar drivetrain (other than a horrid clutch) because of ominous rust, and the fact that a ton of rubber parts had been replaced once already...

Good point Clevy...so what would be said about 0W50, 0W60 ? Lubricants are a compromise, and a pass is a pass...it would make little financial sense to target thrashing the cold pumping specs when you get to put on the bottle "0W"

If I can use 5w-XX grades in our winters, 0w-40 will be of no concern in Michigan.

In Michigan -15F is certainly possible. I still think the blend is a good choice.

Problem solved. Starbright Liquid Electrical tape. A couple of drops in the slot where the tab once lived. Connector can be pulled apart for the next plug change but it will not vibrate loose. This stuff is good for temps of -30 to 255Deg F.
