    Triangle warning light came on now off, cancel dealer appt?

    I went to Advanced Auto and had them read the codes but unfortunately they Saud it only reads the public engine codes and not dealer only codes which are proprietary to their equipment. I'll send them an email and see how they respond. As Incognito_2u, it's good to document it.

    Pressure washer choices

    Electrics don't last. Unless you are spending $800+, buy any gas, M-T-M is a good brand, don't buy Dewalt. Get a wand with removable tips.

    Now I have 2 Random Orbital Buffers, keep 1, keep both?

    I need help to decide. Up to a few days ago, I had only a 2 handle Craftsman and a Ryobi random orbital buffer. I have 2 cars in the family but I detail several cars for others during the year. It's nice to do this part time and pick up a few extra dollars. I may want to do a few more. However...
