    2 or 3 times a year the city has some kind of collection for all kinds of stuff. Earth day they have a few sites set up for everything...donated, trash, appliances,paint, tires electronics and more. There is a limit to the number of tires per address. Pretty easy to get rid of a lot with...

    Car stalled and engine knocking after service test

    Looking at how it ended up, I'm upset that they chose to have a trainee do the ride along just to have another tech take it out anyways. It would have been different if it happened while I was driving with a tech. Also not hearing from them for 2 hours instead of the 30 minutes and not being...

    2015 5.3L ECOTEC3 - Oil Suggestions

    Haven't heard back from the OP yet, sure hope he doesn't do 3K oil changes. 100 mile round trip to work, say 5 days a week. 500 miles per week. Oil changes every 6 weeks and 8 oil changes a year not even counting daily driving around town and weekends or road trips. $$$ OUCH

    Silverado brake time - AC delco vs AAP products

    After it was pointed that the Durastops were not OE, I priced out the actual OE at $205. Priced out the very popular combo of Akebono pads and Centric rotors for 175 so that's what I decided to give a try. Already ordered so no changing now. If I can get another 6yrs, 70K miles for 175 and...
