Yeah, I do this, then I draw the shades, hide the ski mask, and start counting. Seriously? Traffic is going to fry your engine bay like an egg compared to after-shutdown. I'm going well over 100k miles in FL, without a single solitary cooldown with

The feel me? I'm not feeling it. What in the world were they comparing their oil to? To get those striated marks on the surface like that, you'd have to use canola oil with sand in it.

If your a 3k-5k OCI guy, then just go with Wix made house brand filters like Napa Proselect/Silver, Microguard, etc. Fram Extra-Guard would be just fine too. Not a fan of Purolator made filters due to the well documented media tear issues, but most l

I might still have some red cap and silver cap at the warehouse of junk. I used to use 15/50 in the Xj12. I don't recall there being any special rarity or anything like that.

Fram TG3506, 5500 miles from the 2000 Cavalier with a 2.4 using Defy 5w-30. This engine seems to be really hard on filters. I replaced it with a Mobil-1 filter this time. After the Mobil-1 I think I will try a Fram Ultra. Maybe the wire backed medi

A trick you can use if the compressor is at the edge of blowing the fuse is to leave the chuck disconnected to the tire and turn on the compressor. Once it's started up and spinning, then connect it to the tire. It's the initial start up that can dra

My experience is American cars have a built in rubber o-ring on the drain plug that lasts the life of the car, imports have a crush washer that needs replaced each time it is removed.
