I'm never switching to an orange can. The only Fram I'll use is an XG. Seems like a waste to take it off now when I've seen pictures of them with 10,000 miles racked up and they still look like new....

Here's the back story. Say you have an engine that was originally speed for 5w30. In Oz you have to use at least 40 grade or a 50 grade for better performance in the heat. Yet the same engine back spec'd for 5w20 will run for 300k miles in the Sou

Penrite has a wide range of products in all kinds of viscosities , but then i saw they have HPR 30 Diesel 20w60, are there any Diesel engine that use this viscosity?? i thought even old Diesls tend to use 15w40 HDEO's or Straight 40. https://www.penr

TCW3 is ashless, diesels make soot. In diesels is TCW3 a cetane booster? I dunno, I'm just tossing ideas off the top of my head. I know of a guy running a carbed jeep over high altitude passes in CO used it. He claimed modest gains in MPG and

If the thing runs so badly you can't tell if it's a clogged injector or normal operation of the engine, look elsewhere.

I hardly think anyone was stupid. The kid was two and waded into likely 1' of water. I don't think Disney nor parents had any clue of potential risk and an unfortunate event happened. As far as lawsuit that is simply part of doing business.

As expected, if the problem could be solved with a very expensive tool, TheCritic would be the first one to recommend that! I suspect OP can buy the whole caliper for lot cheaper than that tool.

Leave it on. If those are all the miles you do, I would use it for 2 more years and then switch to an Orange Can O' Delight. Or just remove it now. Bet ya can't go the two years.

I'm not a synth guy, however, Mobil 1 75/90. 2 qts in the LSD cured a stuttering clutch. If you are looking for LSD oil. you need a friction modifier. Mobil one has it already added. It is available everywhere.
