    2004 chrysler sebering 2.7 oil selection

    The early 2.7's have the problems... An '04 is most likely ok... buuuut... I would STILL run synthetic for the peace of mind... Any name brand you find on sale or stock up with rebates will do. I've used Synpower, Q-horsepower, and PP with no noticeable difference in consumption. My '01...

    New Oil or Old Oil on Filter Gasket?

    I'd use new oil for the gasket.. but that's just me.. and I'm sure your method works just as well! What I would change/try is leaving the drain plug out while taking off the filter... Might need an extra drain pan or something.. but I always have quite a bit of extra oil coming out of the drain...

    Chiropractors neck manipulation.....safe?

    M.D.'s (and D.O.'s) practice "evidence-based" medicine. Eg. You give pills to decrease blood pressure, after there was statistically significant evidence in large studies that proved the pills work at reducing blood pressure, AND ...you do this because even larger studies statistically have...

    do you prime your fuel pump before you start it

    I ALWAYS let it prime... and.. ALWAYS first shift it to Reverse for at least 2-3 seconds, on the first drive of the day or if it's been sitting (even if not going in reverse)... Supposedly in reverse, transmission fluid (and others) flow more rapidly and lubricate all parts quicker.
