Liquid metal particles, fills in "scratches" etc... It also sticks to metal. They state that the metal is small enough to pass through oil filter and cause no harm to the engine. Or maybe the oil filter IS catching it hence why the noise ta

The 1.5 and 1.6 EcoBoost engines use 5W20, part of why I made sure my mom's Fusion had a 2.0L EcoBoost. The 2.0L also has a larger sump and uses a timing chain.

Not surprising. There are NAPA stores in small towns were there are no major retailers. In addition, the heavy duty filter market is not serviced by Walmart.

I have run into fitment issues with a Dayco upper radiator hose before. In 2002 Ford changed the angle of the water neck on 3.0L V6 Rangers due to a new upper intake manifold design. The Dayco catalog does not account for this, and lists a hose tha

I'd be interested to hear about the differences between the CRV and Ridgeline. After a few weeks in my 06 150k mile CRV, I found it does the "job" well enough, and is solid and tight with most of the interior still close to new. It is wha

AC is OEM for GM, so it should be no problem. Probably about the same quality as Purolator.

Happened to me too. Promised a wix, got a purolator. The private brand switched manufacturers at some point, apparently, and the old stock was a different maker than rockauto believed.
