    Your Major Annoyances on Your Car!??

    2007 f150... Yes it's a super basic truck but I wish it had a tach. And the fake/blank buttons on the steering wheel where cruise control and audio control could have been bother me. Just omit them entirely... I know it's cost savings so they only need to mold one steering wheel but still. 2010...

    Does the MY Carfax DIY info show up on a Carfax check?

    Nah it doesn't. It's just a convenience thing for you, doesn't help you at all with resale.

    Oil Loss Q?

    While I have absolutely no consumption on my Escape running AMSOIL SS 0W-30. Strange.

    AAA or alternative roadside assistance

    Nah AAA is totally worth it. The DMV services at the AAA offices is an extra perk.

    What do you really think Fuel system cleaners are for?

    Different Recommendations for Oil Filter?

    You'll be fine regardless. That extra quarter of a quart of oil and a little extra filter media isn't going to be the difference between an engine that lasts 100k and an engine that lasts 300k.

    15% off K&N motor oil

    Bulk washer fluid at gas station

    Yeah, I'd say I use a few gallons a year per vehicle as well. I mostly get it for free from work though. Whenever we have leaky containers or partial leftovers we use them in the company vehicles and our personal vehicles. I do end up buying it occasionally but that's usually when I need it...

    Compact jump pack needed.

    I have a small Lithium powered Schumacher from O'Reilly. Absolutely love it. Jumped a dead Camry 4 times in a row today and still had 79% left.

    Do these autolite double plats need replacement?

    Ford 4.2, rough idle, no misfires, no codes. Runs fine at higher rpm. Gap was almost exactly the spec of 0.054.

    Giving up on Ford - too many problems, need suggestions

    I mean Ford's not perfect but they aren't bad by any means. I've owned three Crown Vics, a 99, 07, and 08. All ran great at time of sale. They did have minor issues but all things considered, the way I abused them, plus two of them being retired cop cars, they too didn't live easy lives. I've...

    tri coil pack = waste spark?

    Incredible information all. I really appreciate it. Didn't just get an answer - actually learned how and why. Brilliant. Now, one more question... can a bad/worn plug on one end of the system affect the cylinder it's paired with on the coil? Thank you.
