    What is "Plan B" if I can't get Amsoil Z-Rod for My 1990 Corvette ZR-1.

    You guys sound like my grandmother's bridge club in a henhouse with weasels. What's the infatuation with 0W engine oils, ya' all heading to the north pole?

    Choice for V-Sport 3.6 Twin Turbo...oil change

    For something different and slightly thicker, have a look at Chevron Delo 400 5w30 XSP. You have the 3.6L LFX engine. The newer LGX hasn't been offered with a turbo, I read on the internet.

    Who has used a high viscosity transmission fluid in a LV application?

    I've been using the Pet-Can MV Duradrive in everything since the product came out. I'll switch to their 668 next time. I have an unopened pail of the Chevron HD example to use up first. My usage is about a 5 gallon pail a year, so I'm not a big customer.. edit; IMO low vis ATFs, gear oil and...

    Never owned any BITCOIN or the like- but BTC in the high 18k this morning

    Warren Buffett bought BNSF because for one thing "they can't pull it up and move it offshore".

    Need new all seasons for minivan, is there a noticeable difference between H and V rated Crossclimate 2?

    Typically the slower speed rated tires have a deeper tread and may weigh more. I'm not driving 130mph in the winter, so I don't worry about the speed rating as much as performance on ice and snow.

    Who has used a high viscosity transmission fluid in a LV application?

    To answer the thread starter's question; Yes, and I'm not using any of the "vintage"ATFs. I look for the "HDs" that are suitable or approved for Allison's 995 or 668.

    Needing tires for my 2005 Tahoe

    Going to either 245/75/17 or 235/80/17 should help your mpg. I'm thinking Nitto EXO or Toyo CTs for severe winter and long tire life.

    Oil suggestions for 2021 1.5T GM Ecotech

    Exactly why I went with the 3.6L 2022 Acadia. It's a 5w30 engine to begin with, so I can do pretty much anything I want. 20L pails of Petro-Can Dexos 5w30 are $99 minus canadian tire money, which equates to about $75 USD. M-1 0w40 Dexos is not sold in stores. I see 5w40 as an option. The 2L...

    Oil suggestions for 2021 1.5T GM Ecotech

    I'd say experiment while the car is on warranty. Turbo'd engines don't like exhaust back pressure. To fix the gasoline smelling oil on a 2014 2L Escape I cut everything off behind the downstream O2 sensor, 2 1/2 inch woven flex, 2 3/4 exhaust pipe, 2 1/2 in and out bottle muffler then exited the...
