    Lubegard power steering protectant

    The PS pump was getting noisy in our Pontiac Montana so I did a fluid extractor exchange with valvoline PSF twice with about a week of driving in between, and then added a bottle of Lubegard PSF protectant, and it has sounded and felt great ever since! Can't say enough about Lubegard...

    1996 Volvo 850 Turbo 5 Cyl

    Thanks for the info. It has the 2.3L Turbo. The manual reccommends oil "Meeting API specification SG, SG/CD, SH or Energy Conserving (EC) II" and the visosity chart calls for 5W30 for +20C and below, 5W40 for +40C and below, 15W40 for -15C and up, and 10W30 for -20C to +40C. Very wide range...

    1996 Volvo 850 Turbo 5 Cyl

    I should have mentioned that the car will be used mostly for short trips, and it has around 200,000KM on it. Is a HDEO required because of the turbo, or can you simply run a conventional 5W30 or similar?

    1996 Volvo 850 Turbo 5 Cyl

    What would be the best oil to run in a 1996 Volvo 850 Turbo 5 Cyl? I was thinking like Rotella 5W40 synthetic or 15W40 conventional. Any suggestions?

    Broken Intake Manifold Bolt - Need A Drill Bit

    Try a good quality cobalt drill bit, and drill all the way through to the bottom of the bolt completely to relieve pressure on the threads. The larger diameter drill bit you are able to use the better. Once done, soak it with some kroil, and use a large easy out to remove the bolt. Don't drill...

    Hyundai Power Steering Fluid PSF-3

    Wow I'm glad they keep it simple and avoid confusion LOL. So I can use an ATF such as maxlife, or the new PSF-4. I wonder which would be a better choice? Plain old PSF is a no go then? Can't wait until I swap out the manual tranny oil LOL
