    Battery judgement based on analyzer

    <a href="https://www.harborfreight.com/digital-automotive-battery-analyzer-66892.html" target="_blank">Centech 66892</a> this is the analyzer I got. It did allow me to input the CCA rating of the battery. Good point about it possibly not being fully charged, but I think it should be close...

    Battery judgement based on analyzer

    I decided to purchase a battery analyzer (harbor freight digital one) with winter coming up and wanted to know what real-world experience you have in regards to using the information to replace your battery. The method I've used the 27 years I've owned vehicles is to wait until the day it...

    Go Pack Go !

    This happened last week. It's hilarious if you haven't seen it. Basically a guy was being interviewed after helping babies out of a burning building by catching them as someone dropped them out. At the end he takes a shot at Agholor and his facial expression is priceless <div...

    Toyota oil cap funnel

    Not as nice, but much cheaper. This sits very stable on my 06 Camry and 12 sienna. At least stable enough that I don't have to hold it while pouring. I got it awhile back on Amazon for $4, but it's double that price now on Amazon. It's showing as $2.99 at O'Reilly's <a...

    Anyone got a Fireworks stash?

    I got mine yesterday. Can't wait for the 4th. <img src="https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/attachments/usergals/2019/06/full-67486-33611-img_20190616_181434768.jpg" alt="[Linked Image]" class="post-image" style="height:auto!important;max-width:100%!important;"/>

    Help with First Cruise

    Make sure you know the cost of everything before you agree to anything especially in Nassau. The hair braiders that yell "let us braid your hair pretty lady" at the port will estimate $40 or so to braid your wife's hair and it'll turn into $200 because there was so much hair after they're done...

    Any tire sales coming up?

    Walmart has some deals on Cooper tires now. $30 off a 2 pack. I'm not sure if it'll link correctly so you may have to go to the website and search, but here goes nothing. <a...

    what does this road sign mean?

    Don't want to hijack a thread, but what the heck. I've come across a sign (actually an arrow) that i interpret diffrently then 95% of my fellow motorist and wanting to see how some of you would interpret it as I'm willing to admit I'm wrong and change how I treat it in the future. I made a rough...

    Brady is the GOAT!

    The GOAT debate will always depend on your perspective. Does GOAT = most accomplished? If so then of coarse he's the GOAT (as long as we're only looking at the super bowl era). I don't personally go by this metric because football is a 53 man team and there is a huge dependency on coaching (if...

    Electrical Outlet - Wiring Help

    Did the original outlet have a tab broken? If broken only the hot side should be broken (gold side with black wires). If not you need to get a new outlet and replace since you already broke the tab. In this configuration it doesn't matter which wire goes where. If the original outlets tab was...

    Good nav system that I can program?

    I use google maps on my iPhone and been quite happy with it . It came preloaded I believe and displays as "maps" only.. When you select a destination it typically will show a few options of routes (usually 3) that you can click on before navigating. Not sure if you can fully customize the route...

    Anode Rod - the CONCLUSION

    FYI: The anode rod depends on a physical electrical connection to the tank to do its magic. I haven't had any issues with the teflon insulating it too much as when you tighten it the threads tend to break through, but just to be safe if you have a ohmmeter laying around check for continuity...

    Replacing some outlets, have questions......

    No need for the 20 amp receptacle unless you happen to have an appliance that has a 20amp plug (then in must be on a 20 amp circuit with a minimium of 12 gauge wire). I prefer to use a commercial grade receptacle in high use areas, but really haven't had a problem using the cheap blue back...

    Nissan Frontier ignition switch

    I am trying to determine if I need an ignition switch or the key cylinder assy. The symptoms are my battery is going dead and after recharging it overnight I hooked it back up and tested it with a meter. It was pulling about 6 amps and then I could hear a relay click and it would drop to .2...

    bed bugs

    No personal experience, but saw on some show that they used heat instead of pesticides to kill. From searching on the web it looks like 113 degrees is lethal. 15 minutes for hatched bed bugs, 60 minutes for eggs. Like I said I have no experience,but it's worth looking into. If the room is fairly...
