    Any ideas on this noisy 2009 Corolla?

    Yeah it was a bit of coin but also included a new belt and it was done correctly and efficiently

    Best/Worst vehicles to change the oil&filter on?

    Dodge 3.6 Penstar, GM 2.2 have cartridge filters mounted on top of the engine, easy peasy The 2 Crosstreks and current Forester all have the filter up top as well. Very weasy changes

That being said, am I walking a tightrope by continuing to drive the car in the condition it it is in? I am...

    Any ideas on this noisy 2009 Corolla?

    Took ownership on my mother's 2009 Corolla as she does not drive any longer. She was pretty good at keeping up the maintenance when she was driving but for the last year and a half the car pretty much sat. Only thing I have done to it is have the dealership give it an oil change. The car...

    Any issues using Rotella 0W20 Gas/Truck in Honda Civic 1.5L Turbo?

    Thanks for the welcome back guys! Yes, I was going to buy PP but saw this for 4.50 a quart and figured why not give it a try. 9 bucks at Wally for the filter and zero tax in the Live Free or Die state <img src="/forums/graemlins/banana2.gif" alt="banana" title="banana" height="35" width="33" />
