I doubt it's the resistance spec. Resistance is usually 5k ohm. 5k ohm vs 6k ohm makes no difference. Resistance is only to prevent the spark plug from acting like a radio-frequency transmitter antenna. Is this an NGK plugs? 4, 5, 6, etc. would be t

Engine Oil Filters
I have my original 1976 Chevrolet Nova owners manual. It says normal 7500 miles for oil and filter every other oil change. Severe 3000 miles. Somewhere in the mid 70's it went up from 6000 to 7500. Jeez I think some are getting a little worked up

Just to be clear i did not go from a 30 to a 40. I never stated that. I think the higher pressure was cause by the mobil 1 filter. Either that or the pennz hm has much thicker viscsity until warm when compared to castr hm. It leaked a lot

No reason to use any kind of sealant on a "rubber" gasket." If the rubber gasket isn't pliable enough to conform to the irregularities in the mating surfaces,the sealant isn't going to help.

I know a guy who bought a series of black Lincoln Town Cars. When gas prices started creeping up to $3.50 per gallon he traded it in on a new Prius. He bought the bigger one and I think it was around $28k or so.

I don't think pilots are sitting in the cockpit watching movies while the plane is on autopilot. Can a Tesla play a movie off the dash display while being in drive or autopilot or was the system modified to play movies by the owner?
