I had looked at some higher end JD models but it came down to the location. The cost was not so bad but the time needed for travel was just not going to happen. When the economy is bad business is good and when the economy is good business is good.

Since it did it once, and not since, I'd be tempted to check the throttle body wiring connection. Perhaps it just lost contact for a minute and needs cleaning. Otherwise I also agree with bdcardinal.

I've used both Pennzoil Platinum and Mobil 1 in my Trax. it's a 1.4L turbo, not direct injection though. I would and will use any dexos 1 oil I can find on sale, without even a second thought really.

Back in the early 90s I used to add Slick 50 to my oil changes in my 1989 Mustang 2.3 4 cyl that I had customized to look like an SVO Mustang. Cool Fox body car with no power to speak of even with the 5-speed manual. What the heck was that Slick 50

Compared to mine, yours is wearing very well. I think some just wear better than others no matter what you do. As a side thought, what good does it do me to have an engine that will last 500,000 miles? Judging by the current state of the rest of t

So you're getting aftermarket 18 inch wheels and 225/45r18 size tires now? Enough with the RT43's and CS5's. You should get something that's less popular on here and then be able to tell BITOG about something new.

They slowed down the flow with those louvers and that stopped some of their tearing issues... Its like they are engineered to have problems.
