    American Airlines mechanic in Miami charged with sabotaging plane. It aborted ta

    Article says he has been a citizen for "decades" and in his current job since 1988. Apparently has behaved himself up until recent times. 60 is an odd age to begin doing this sort of thing. I'm starting to change my perspective on this a little. I think this guy might not be the sharpest tool...

    Could you live on a Sailboat/Boat or tiny off grid home?

    No. There's a lot I would enjoy about any of those, but my primary passion is wrenching. I don't even know what I would do without the 24-hour AutoZone, let alone being hours from a regular one. Tiny house? I've done as much as 10 days on my cruiser. Basically a tiny house. Could I live in...

    737 max... what now?

    I just read it. All I can say is.......wow. The more I learn about it, the sadder it is.

    2008 Duramax

    Don't change anything. Do further research and you'll find Duramax to be the most boring engine when it comes to oil. Nothing dramatic. But if I had a Duramax, I wouldn't spend a penny extra for a premium oil. In my experience with all-Duramax fleets, I've seen approximately 1 out of every 15...

    2019 J.D. Power VDS

    From the experience of people I know who own some of those vehicles, it seems to make sense. Don't doubt the Chrysler Town and Country. I've spoken to a lot of Uber XL drivers who have 40-70k miles on them (or Pacificas), and they swear by them. All were in incredible shape. Practically...

    2019 200 hp Mercury Outboard Oil

    I've said it before, there is nothing "wrong" with an NMMA approved oil. It's a good, safe bet. Especially for your typical boat owner who just doesn't know any better. I've seen a lot of jugs of 5W-20 on V8 cruisers. Spooky. I get what NMMA is trying to accomplish, and most people would...

    RAV4 Moose test - Fail

    Most road obstacles are best dealt with the brakes, and not the wheel. This is one of the first lessons truckers are taught.

    Twin Cats

    I live how that ship is designed for 8 people plus the owner comfortably. That's a huge boat for 9 people. Must be comfortable indeed!

    2019 200 hp Mercury Outboard Oil

    There is a reason why you do not see NMMA oils for marine diesel engines. Pick any category of oil spec and the diesel engine manufacturers spec completely blows away NMMA. To have an NMMA diesel oil would be redundant and a lower bar. NMMA cert just means that an oil has met a certain set of...

    2017 L5P Duramax Fuel Filter (TP1015)

    That and the lift pump make it a much smarter design.
