Boat/PWC Lubrication
Jump to new posts Re: Towing boat with Dodge Caravan by IndyIan @ 58 minutes 29 seconds ago

My buddy used to tow a 16' Al boat with a Yaris. No issues, but it was a manual so running up a long hill in 4th or 3rd wasn't hard on the trans or really even the motor. You might have to manually lock OD out for a particular grade that has you cyc

Isn't the Chrysler 4.7 one of the engines affected by sludge? If so, nothing less than synthetic 5W30 of your choice changed every 5K miles.

I've always noticed more engine vibration and roughness when having the A/C on at idle in my Acura. My girlfriend said her low mileage '01 Civic does the same thing. Hopefully you find out what the issue is, as I'd love to know.

I agree you don't need to flush it every time. I had to flush it before because it had green coolant in it and Nissan had switched to only Blue long life coolant. If I mixed the two it would only be good for the same as using only green coolant.

I'd recommend you do both as I'm one of those who like redundancy in backups & because you're talking about 2 different things. The Lenovo recovery disks will allow you to recreate your computer setup as it was when it left the factory/you recei

That is not much of a load. Your van "should" do fine. With that being said, you can usually find a beater V8 truck or V8 Ford Econoline van to tow your boat for $700-1000, if you are worried about wear and tear on your van. The good thing

If you have an AAP near by, they stock MANN filters. Check the Filter itself. if it says made in USA, they yep. Purolator.

DVD's are cheap - why not just play it safe and make recovery discs with both. And verify them, if the recovers software gives you the option to do so. Personally, I'm paranoid so I make multiple backups via multiple methods when I move HDDs

How is power, idle quality, and fuel mileage with the AC OFF? You cold have lost some atomization on one cyl due to carbon on intake valve or poor injector spray pattern on one causing poor cyl balance. You coul load the engine up against the brake a
