    Buying a 2002 Chevy Impala

    At a minimum, I'd replace the trans fluid, filter, and install the extra magnets per GM TSB 08-07-30-040C. You might also want to install a Transgo Shift Kit while you're there.

    2021 Tesla Model S, is it now the best Tesla choice?

    Because demand for EV wasn't there for the last 10 years, and established automakers have to turn a profit and return money to their shareholders to keep them happy, unlike what is the case for Tesla. In fact, 10 years ago, the IAE estimates that only roughly 17,000 electric cars were on the...

    Whatever happened to......

    Not exactly truck related, just because there aren't a lot of trucks that are FWD, but this was still an interesting video on just how important proper tires are in adverse (see: snow) conditions.

    Really putting those coal-fired power plants in Utah and Arizona to good use.

    2022 GMC Hummer EV

    Well, California does have a power problem. It actually wouldn't surprise me if they had to do something like that, especially if their Governor's executive order stands that requires all new cars to be electric by the mid 2030s. They'll have to figure something out to meet the increasing demand.

    I miss you _______ on my new car.

    Dark green paint. I'm sick and tired of the endless sea of greys, blacks, and whites.

    Mercedes Benz "new strategy"

    I don't see what's so alarming about this "new strategy". Everything they listed in their "pillars" going forward seem like healthy business practices. As long as they remember pillar 1, "Think and act like a luxury brand", everything else should just result in a healthier business and not at...

    Is there an PCMO that you said you'd never buy again.

    However you want to see things. That said, I don't think you understand fully what "virtue signaling" is. virtue signaling [ vur-choo sig-nl-ing ]SHOW IPA noun Sometimes Disparaging. the sharing of one's point of view on a social or political issue, often on social media, in order to garner...

    Another SCORE # 3 !!

    I have no interest in blocking people. Really, I just don't understand your approach in this thread. I mean, here's your first post: I can understand that, in your opinion, it may not have been a wise purchase. However, there are less antagonistic ways of saying that, and they all could've...

    Is there an PCMO that you said you'd never buy again.

    Well, to never buy it again would insinuate that I've bought it before, which I refuse to do. I'll never buy SuperTECH. Not because it's a bad oil or anything, in fact I've heard the opposite from most folks, but I really try to limit how much I have to shop at Walmart and I avoid all...

    Another SCORE # 3 !!

    I've had family in Utah for 30+ years, spent 10 years there myself, and still visit annually. It's funny to me how many of the reckless drivers I've seen and heard of had California plates. I actually nearly got hit head-on by a California driver going through Sardine Canyon who couldn't...

    M1 0W-40 In Hyundai GDI 2.0L

    I've got a Hyundai 2.0L MPI engine and I've run what seems like everything reasonable through it- 0/5W-20, 0/5W-30, and now 10W-30. No issues at all. I'm thinking about running a 0W-40 through it next and don't expect any issues with that either.

    Home made hot wings

    It's pretty straight forward. Salt and pepper your chicken in a large bowl, pour buttermilk over the chicken and let rest in the fridge overnight. In another large bowl, pour in your flour and add salt, pepper, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and a touch of garlic powder. Amounts will vary...
