Is there a thread or page that lays out these things? I found the article glossary on the home page but for instance it didn't have "OPE". What is that? Internet didn't help me. A while back I recall finding that "OCI" was oil change interval, but can't remember how I found that out. I thought I vaguely remember it being in a list somewhere. thanks!

TLA = Three Letter Abbreviation (very useful acronym)

If someone used the word "acronym" in, say, 1953, would anyone know what they meant?

My kids are good at that too, have one of each gender. Me and the wife, we're more of the "I don't know, what do you want?" sort. LOL

ALL - you are expected to keep your acronyms clean; don't reference things otherwise unfit for posting, just because you can hide behind an acronym.
It took me several minutes to clean up this thread.
Like my dad used to say .... "Don't make me come back here again, 'cause you won't like it if I do."

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

those shortcuts are for posters BUT NOT for the READERS in most instances, simply a PITA. spelling thing out at least once in the beginning then short cutting is not as bad for me as whats obvious to some is NOT for others!!
