    Drain plug advice

    I am going to drop the trans pan and change the fluid in my 2010 Wrangler Sport. When I have it off I would like to add a drain plug for future maintenance, does anyone have a recommendation on a reliable one to install and is ther a specific area of the pan thats best suited ?

    Clogged zerk remedy?

    We never fought with them, they are too cheap to waste time trying to free up, replace it and move on. If the joint itself was clogged we shot it full of PB blaster, put the fitting back on and pressurized it with grease then noted it on the maintenance report and checked it the next time.

    Trailblazer tire pressures

    When I had my 07 I ran the tires at the pressure on the placard. I dont figure I am any smarter than the people that designed, built and warrantied the vehicle and the tires.

    ATF in PS

    I ran it in my 05 Silverado for 150,000 miles with zero issues. The pump was undersized for the added weight of the diesel so GM suggested using Synthetic PS fluid. I used dex 6 at a 1/3 of the price. The majority of our fleet at work used ATF. We even had one that was spec'd for 15W40 diesel...

    School me on Radon...

    With all the millenials residing in their Moms basements we should have definitive proof of Radon's effects by testing that age group in 20 yrs or so.
