Passenger Car Motor Oil (PCMO) - Gasoline Cars/Pickups/Vans/SUVs
Jump to new posts Re: Mobil 1 Or Quaker State Ultimate Durability ? ? by mrdctaylor @ 07/20/16 03:15 PM

I use both and can't tell much difference. I use QSUD 5W30 or 10W30 in my 2002 Toyota Tacoma and my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Both have up close to 200K miles. I started using QSUD a couple of OCIs ago because it was so much cheaper at Walmart. Now

Yes, AC Delco sells the cap with the filter so you can replace it every oil change if you really want to, but it's not necessary. I still use my original cap that came with the car. I use a 3/8 drive with the special ecotech oil filter socket and jus

If by "outlawed", you mean illegal, then no, they're not directly illegal. It's just a very outdated means to convert fuel to rotational motion, so they're being phased out due to market pressure. It's hard to sell a flat head when the co

Most are not free- only discounted from 10-30% I just got a dog brush for 95 cents that was $15- that was almost free. That said I will review it like I bought it at full price. If you don't have integrity, you have nothing.

Funny you say that DBLWSP, you made me recall a Plasma chamber I ran at Bell Labs had a 2 stage vacuum pump, one stage being a roots-style blower. Those ran inert, non-combustable "liquid Teflon" as a lubricant.

CT still does the dyno test for pre-OBD2 vehicles. But anything 25 years old or older is exempt from emissions testing, so in a few more years, the dyno test will be obsolete and they'll just have the OBD2 test. No safety inspections whatsoever here.
