    What are you eating right now?

    When I was your age I would have eaten the sandwich as a warm-up before tackling the Long John Silver's. 😁

    What are you eating right now?

    🎶 So all ashore that's goin' ashore, get Captain Crunch at yer groc'ry store 🎶 This was to the tune of one of the Pirates of Penzance songs, and is burned into my memory banks due to me watching too much TV when I was young.

    Thinking about another corolla diesel does 21 mpg

    There was a diesel boom in North America in the mid-'80s. Some that come to mind: - Full-size Olds V8 (the ill-fated gasoline-to-diesel conversion) - Ford Escort (and/or Mercury Lynx - the Euro version) - Mazda 626 (2nd-gen) - Various VWs There must have been many others, but I don't remember...

    It's a very complex issue. As has been discussed: - Is the incidence higher now than, say, two or three generations ago, or is diagnosis better? - Is there an environmental cause (or causes)? - Is there a genetic predisposition? - Is it like a series circuit where there's both a genetic...

    Chevy to bring back the Corvair name

    I took my driving lessons in a '73ish Hornet with a floor-mounted 3-speed shifter - I wanted to learn on a manual-ytrannission car, and that's what they supplied.

    VEGEMITE: very tasty

    Aieee! Scared by your post warning of shortages, I hiked through winter's last hurrah (sloppy wet snow and high winds) and picked up four jars at Superstore. Unfortunately I've only seen the 125 ml jars here, but the four of them should keep me going for a couple of weeks. Thanks for the...

    VEGEMITE: very tasty

    No Cost Plus World Market here ... :( I did try an offbeat ethnic market here, which carries Indian and Carribean food. Thought the British Commonwealth influence might have shown up there in the form of Vegemite, but no luck. But that's OK - I can get my Marmite at Co-op or Superstore...

    What are you working on today?

    That looks similar to the 2-piece cabin filter in our 2009 Mazda 5. Finicky job, but not bad compared to changing one on a '98 CR-V.

    1998 Honda CRV 2.4 - fluid/mtce recommendations

    Did a bit more work on the CR-V earlier today. - Changed a very overdue cabin filter (Post #27): - Took off the driver's door panel, in preparation for replacing the PW ass'y. - Was able to...

    Cabin Filters (NSFB) not safe for BITOG

    OK, I'll play - this is from this afternoon, out of a '98 Honda CR-V with 345K km on it. Given the difficulty involved in accessing the cabin filter, I doubt it had been changed in a long time, if ever. The owner had complained of poor heat, and the HVAC cabin fan was roaring away on high but...

    Acceptable battery draw Hmmm, deja vu ... in my case, it was the Bluetooth unit, although the current draw was much higher than yours.

    How do I find out who I've accidentally ignored?

    That was part of my original question.

    Whole Lot of Clanking Going On 1998 LS400?

    @Gebo, it's good to see you back here! I agree with the others, that sounds atrocious. Any update for us? Curious minds want to know ...

    How do I find out who I've accidentally ignored?

    That's exactly what I do - which is why I was dismayed when I discovered I was ignoring someone.
