    Any idea how old is this Havoline?

    Can I mix with latest oils, say SM, SN and use with confidence for 3K oil changes? Any negative impact? Thx

    Any idea how old is this Havoline?

    Does it seem like from early 2000? Planning to use in my beater 06 Civic with 1.8L as a frankenstein brew during summers. Or just leave it and use it in OPE? Thank you.

    Diesel Oil in Gasoline - Honda?

    Have all these Honda in the signature and have some Mobil Delvac HDEO 15W-40 and Shell T6 Rotella 5W-40 laying around. Can I use it after making a brew with regular 0W20 or 5W20? Or should I just keep diesel oils for motorcycles and OPE! Thank you :D

    Seized Parking Brake Cable - Suggestions?

    Thanks @paulo57509 - mechanism does seem fine with movement and caliper can be compressed. Removed cable from the spring on the caliper and had to use brute force to pull it out, meaning it is coming back once lever is released. Is this an expected behavior? Will be receiving a new cable...

    Seized Parking Brake Cable - Suggestions?

    Did notice from the beginning, with lever action rear driver side was moving in and out, while passenger side was stuck as the exact same point and no impact with hand brake. That is why suspecting actual cable is bad, now thinking could it be a caliper? Appreciate any thoughts? :)

    Seized Parking Brake Cable - Suggestions?

    Yes, did check after removing from the caliper - once brake lever is pulled it does move, but does not come back once lever is released and needs a lot of brute force to budge and still does not come out all the way - does it mean cable is bad or caliper issue?

    Seized Parking Brake Cable - Suggestions?

    That seems to be the case and consensus, going to order a new one. Any thoughts on the replacement or anything should be better than current one? :) Thank you.

    Seized Parking Brake Cable - Suggestions?

    Sorry it is an 06 Acura TSX - cable is not moving up or down for the rear passenger side. Used silicone lube, what else can I use to free it? Thanks

    Seized Parking Brake Cable - Suggestions?

    So passenger side rear parking brake cable isn't moving when hand brake inside the car is being pulled or released. Driver rear side moves freely, anyway to unstuck or to get it free? Similar behavior as this one in the thread...

    Fixing Siding Trim Board

    From a distance backing behind it seems to be wood, what has been your experiences? Will confirm, but if wood, then can use a deck screw or any outdoor screw meant for wood and then caulk it.
