If the wires are on there nice and snug and the car runs fine, you should be all good. Were the Champion plugs from the factory? If so, I can't believe they went 220,000 miles. I had an 05 XD and I had to replace the factory Champions at 80K since

This is very good oil. You have no need to look for any other sales for a few years in my opinion. That's if this is specd for your car.

This may sound silly to many of you, but I don't have the automotive knowledge that many here do so here it goes....is the oil filter before or after the oil pump? Does it depend on the application? Thanks!

Dont forget, torque values are usually specified dry. This ensures the fastner will sieze/gall/corrode in place, which in turn ensures that it'll shear if you ever try to take it off. When torquing it up, did you make sure that the thread on the d

Methinks that you have enough oil to last a decade at least, if it was spec'd for the vehicles you own.

No, 1865/3195 = 58% x 80 psi = 46.6 psi. Add the 5 psi for highway and you're at 50-52. The psi makes sense, the tires are rated the same as what I have on my 2500HD Duramax. He could try 50 and see how he likes it. No idea where the formula cam

They had to get rid of a bulk tank for some immediate construction, and couldn't at the time sell off the lot of oil fast enough, so they let employees who were interested take as much as they wanted until the tank was disposed of. I"m not sure

If you have anything like the Pomona Swap Meet near you, that is a great place to buy tools. There is a section where a bunch of tool truck drivers sell repo tools that you can exchange for new under warranty.

Looking online the GVWR is 5,330 pounds. They are an 80 psi max tire and are capable of 3195 pounds each. So 35% max load per tire is 1865 pounds. So 35% of 80 psi is 28 psi? Sounds like way too low to me.
