Engine Oil Filters
Its too bad. It could have been a decent filter if they used a little less glue and a better ADBV. This filter may be lurking at small mom n pop shops.

It works both ways. You want great illumination at a distance but what about the oncoming traffic that are blinded by your great lights? I notice that even the alleged poor lights are blinding at times. Just saying...

I've been using Collinite with Rejex on the glass/headlights. My Collinite is pretty much dead, it's really old now. So, I had been just using the Rejex for a while and that is OK if you apply it very specifically. If you don't follow the directio

Which vehicle? What oil/filter is in it? How loaded down will the vehicle be on the trip? You could just split the difference and have it changed half way through your trip.

Per the manufacturer, you would install it before the cooler on a new vehicle in order to keep the cooler clean, after the cooler on an older vehicle which already has contaminants lodged in the cooler. Obviously you would also put it before the cool

Not even necessarily here, but in general. My Toyota 4Runner uses a cartridge filter, and I have a terrible time finding filters that are built better than the Toyota filter. Fram's older Tough Guard models look pretty decent (Korean), but it's har

Going to 8-10K oil changes probably will surpass the readings of your OLM. If it was me, I'd use the high mileage synthetic of choice and follow the OLM calculations. I've always found the OLM on my 2007 Ridgeline (same motor) to be accurate based on

I don't think it matters much. The return line will be at engine coolant temps..maybe slightly cooler than the inlet side when driven hard. I would use the line which gives you the best position to service the Magnefine filter.

1st choice for extending: UOA. Without doing this you'll always question whether the oil is good or not. Once you get up to your desired OCI length, no more need to have them done just run it that long.... 2nd choice is your oil. Choose somethin
