    2017-2018 Elantra 2.0L Thermostat Issues

    No offense, but your faith in RockAuto's accuracy is what's wonky. Here is where $219 comes from: Link

    Yep. I will admit the 212 degree setting did surprise me. Seems a bit warm.

    2017-2018 Elantra 2.0L Thermostat Issues

    I purchased a 2018 Elantra 2.0L as a commuter car with 23K miles about a month ago. Really great car overall. No current issues or codes thrown. Drives like new. We got a trememdous, historic ice storm this week and obviously unseasonable temperatures. Well, my first experience with the heater...

    When is the next NAPA filter sale?

    To be clear, I wasn't being critical of RA or your opinion, nor do I think you perceived it that way. I just shuffle parts around so much to get the best deals that it takes RA out of the equation completely. For a lack of a good example, I buy a case of brake fluid at AZ price matching it to...

    I'm glad someone beat me to this!

    When is the next NAPA filter sale?

    I have all the patience in the world...enough to do business with 4 different part stores and hunt clearance items like a fiend. I don't have patience to ship, send back, and re-ship parts.

    You noticed he changed it to Castrol to spite all of us, right? Quite funny.

    When is the next NAPA filter sale?

    "Farm & Fleet Sale" (a.k.a. "Filter Sale" to the counter guys) is what it's usually called. You're correct on the spring timing, and the fall timing is now. As the name suggests, it's timed around the earliest and latest dates the farm equipment should run. I used to think the exact same thing...

    When is the next NAPA filter sale?

    What is your price on these: A - 7060MP B - 1372MP C - 200420 Just curious to see what "ridiculous" really means. If you can beat my price, you may have a hefty customer, and if it's substantial enough, I'll gladly pay for your time also. I live up to my username. Of course it's also dependent...

    Idemitsu? I also noticed a lot of avatar changes. Don't care, not my business, not poking fun. Just an observation.

    Also, don't forget to stack the rebate with the sale. In many cases, it actually ends up cheaper to add an air and cabin filter to that Platinum than just buying the Platinum by itself.

    It depends on your local area, but for many it's right now. See this thread.

    NAPA Carlyle 3.5 Ton Floor Jack $179/199.

    I'm a little late to the party, but this is an ongoing "monthly special" I just discovered [LINK]. Online price shows $199. All of my local corporate stores have them marked at $179 (marked 10% off). Obviously YMMV. I don't need one, but at $179 I sure do want one... Edit: you may want to call...

    Shop trash can...what do you use?

    ...Well, this is why you don't let your mind wander too much when you're supposed to be asleep. I rarely have dumb moments, but that was definitely one of them. 🤦‍♂️ Now that I'm awake and thinking clearly, I realize several things. First, nobody here is using a 55 gallon metal drum (so far)...
