Can you fit a straw in the end of he can? It will reach past the sensor.. Or use a vac. port maybe? Better yet find out why the carbon is building up and address the problem, not the symptom.

On Long Island, the words perfect and drive usually don't go together. At 0200 the roads are usually traffic free, the biggest fear is drunken drivers at that hour.

Frequent oil changes are all I would do. You don't want that junk floating around. Complete disassembly is the only answer but not practicle.

Thanks for all the help, guys. Macgyver, I printed out your list and hit 2 Walmarts and neither had the Fram so I ended up with the Bosch. I'll plan better and get the Fram next time.

My commute to work is 8.7 miles. Usually takes me 10-15 minutes depending on how many lights I hit. My commute home is 9.9 miles since the freeway exit for my house is really bad in the afternoon, I cut through UCSB.

I don't think you can go wrong with either one. You can get better micron filtration with a dedicated hydraulic filter, but you can't go wrong with a good oil filter. It's a whole lot better than nothing. Again, with a 2-micron hydraulic filter, you

Was going to say that the most successful way of preventing hair loss is to become castrati in your early years. This is just the chemical version of it. Do the former, it's cheaper in the long term probably.
