As far as Napa branded, I avoid anything other than Adaptive One or Fleet. Around here they carry Akebono for most Japanese brand cars.

I still run my 2010 MacBook Air almost daily. Battery even still works well. I also have a 2008-ish MacBook Pro that I run Windows on now and again. I did replace the battery and change to an ssd on that. Both run perfect otherwise.

Id get a used motor from reputable Ebay dealer and it is an easy swap. No wires to cut, just a couple of bolts and done. Do check to see if this is a recurring problems with this model and if there are some recommendations for lubrication points.

If this is the shape of PP to come, I'll be trying to stock up on the old stuff before it becomes unobtainable. Not very impressive imo other than boron. Not far from a strong 20 grade.

I have an 8-1/2 year old MacBook Pro. Runs like an absolute champ, battery is getting a little less than optimal but still good enough for me. I'd never spend that kind of money though, I got it a few years ago from my work for $25, used. I also ha

3-5 years...I bought my current Lenovo off the shelf at an Office Max around early 2012. It's getting pretty raggedy, but it keeps going. It's definitely due for replacement though. It has lasted about 2 years longer than the two off the shelf HPs

I have had my most recent MacBook Pro only about a year. It is a Retina 15" 2015 with an i7, 16GB RAM and a 256GB SSD -- a model where it is still a M.2 NVMe. I have no reason to believe this machine won't be serving me well for another 6 year

I also have an inclined driveway. It works fine just use a floor jack and adjust your jackstands to what you need. A magnetic level is a good thing to use too.

Simply avoid chassis torsion and heat. And obviously drops. I had a Gateway for 8 years.

My camry seems to like Quaker State hi mileage 10w30 I would recommend that. I find it at walmart cheaply around $15. The manual says if you never drive below 0degrees C. 10w30 is acceptable. I went through plenty of highway runs with ambient temper

Mobil 1 5w-30 does not cut it for track use IMO. HTHS too low. If you don't want to switch out to 15w-50 per the manual (and to keep your warranty under track use), then I would go with a Dexos2 5w-30 such as Pennzoil Euro L. Dexos2 is the recomme
