    Is Providence oil from Rural King worth a try?

    Thank everyone. I've decided to pass on this deal. It's a shame. $9.99 for 5 qts is pretty **** good. Oh well.

    Is Providence oil from Rural King worth a try?

    Thank you. I didn't see Providence on Warren Oil's list. Is it possible it's made by another company? Perhaps the list is not updated?

    Is there a list of all the oils Warren Oil makes?

    Is Providence oil from Rural King worth a try?

    They're running a sale on this oil and I'm coming up on an oil change on my brother's car. What say the experts? Thanks Addition: He has a 2016 Toyota Camry with around 45K miles.

    TW Seal N Shine New Formula

    I don’t know why, either, but in my experience the old version lasted longer. Perhaps the added UV protection mitigates longevity? I don’t know, just a guess.

    Modern vehicles that are both reliable and easy to work on

    Subaru Crosstrek. The only time it’s seen the dealer is when I’ve gone to pick up maintenance parts, and I’m no mechanic.

    PCV valve replacement

    The FSM on my Subaru crosstrek calls for it. When I took the original one out it had it.

    Lifetime alignments?

    I have the lifetime alignment from Tires Plus. I go in for an alignment once a year after I get my tires balanced and rotated. Never an issue or charge. Sure, they try to sell you maintenance work, but that’s expected. Do I need to get an alignment every year? Maybe not, but it makes me all warm...

    What is the mileage you normally run an OCI?

    5K or 6 months on a 2015 Subaru Crosstrek. 0W-20 in whatever’s on sale.

    2012 Ford Escape 2.5 i4 oil on spark plugs

    The second and third spark plugs had some oil on the tips and threads. Car has 50k miles. It has a slight jerkiness when cruising around 40mph. I think the jerkiness is gone, but the oil on plugs left me a little worried. Should I lose sleep over this?

    I believe Subaru makes their own transmissions.

    Nostalgia? All it's cracked up to be?

    Back in the 70s I used to hunt lizards with a BB rifle. If I did that today someone would call SWAT. Good times.

    Car idling rougher after dealer visit

    I’d go with the idle relearn. I recently replaced my battery and immediately noticed a rough idle while in Park. After 4 days, it’s now idling smooth.
