One of the reasons I dont use 303 protectant as much any more is that it messed up some of the soft-touch coated plastics in my saab. I ended up replacing one part where it was most obvious, but a few others it is a bit tacky even today. And that

They either consider bringing Selenia brand to NA or SRT cars over here. I see a lot of Chryslers on Italian plates (I live 50 km from Italy) since FIAT bought them.

Why do you need a tool to remove the coil packs in the first place? A good firm grip, and a slight tug upwards, and out they come. BC.

I mean my oil pressure is in the forties cruising down the highway in the 55mph range. That seems acceptable to me since its around 2200rpm, and I think I have a 60 psi oil pump. Does that seem logical to anyone else? If I had an oil galley plug mi

I've had no problems with my 08 Outlander for the 6+ years I've owned it. Very good handling, and comfortable to ride in.

If you're looking for pure convenience, give no-rinse washes and spray waxes a try. You could do far, far worse than the Optimum No-Rinse and Optimum Spray Wax combo (or Opti-Seal). I started doing this to my car years ago, so there may be better p

You can't always tell how tough a dog is by size and reputation. In a dog park nearby a skin-head looking guy with a big tough looking pit bull on a leash was encouraging his dog to intimidate people and other dogs. He did this with a little old lady

It needs new shoes. Make sure the drum part of the rotors are not all scored up. You have the FSM so your all set, it isn't difficult. When you adjust them do it with the calipers pads retracted and just until the shoes scratch the the drum with no

I don't drive my Century in winter time. I have a 4x4 truck for winter. That's one reason I went for Amsoil 10w-30 in the Buick.

You're not noting what you want to use it in or how you use the vehicle, but I'm sure that the oil would be up for 4K and probably a good bit more in an application for which an API spec 5W-30 is recommended.
