My wifes friend has a 2005 BMW Z4 and asked me what she needed to add to the radiator since her low coolant light comes on first thing in the morning. She said it goes out soon after driving, so I told her there is probably a slow leak that needs fix

If I apply the information in this topic to engine oils, would it be reasonable to assume that mixing brands even in the same class, (for example HDMO CJ-4/SM) is acceptable, but not the best practice?

The only issue a see, especially since it's on a truck that will see rough terrain and construction sites, is that the plastic pan will crack instead of bend, when it hits something.

More oil seals the rings better. 18.1 is generally the hp peak. Anything more or less looses hp. Not that it's a bunch of hp loss, unless you are at something silly like 6.1. I doubt your cylinder was scored from carbon. At least not deep enough to

I just changed the oil on a friends 2011 Chevy Traverse and the oil looked OK when I drained it but when I pulled the fill cap off, this is what I found. This is also the filter off it with 7k miles on the filter and AMSOIL OE 5w-30 oil. The OLM was

It's just two different ways to achieve the same thing. O-ring gaskets are thinner but put more pressure on what's touching the block, preventing leaks. Flat gaskets have a wider sealing area which prevents leaks. Both work.

Would it be a good idea to store detailing products in the house during winter? I usually have them sitting on a shelf in the garage, which isn't heated. Will freezing temperatures affect the performance of wax, detail spray, etc...? Thanks
