    Good Write up On 5.7 Hemi Issues

    It seems that MDS is not so much the issue as manufacturer defect that they knew about, excerpting to much forces on parts, and lubrication issues were key, and using heavier weights only made it worse. Dr. Andy Randolph, technical director at ECR Engines—a NASCAR engine developer based out...

    New truetrac require early change?

    I did not even ask, nor did the shop that installed my Detroit truetrac tell me about a break in, or early drain and refill. Just wondering if anyone has experience with truetrac and or a early drain and refill should be done? I know I should have asked, but dropped vehicle off at 7 am and...

    Installed new Detroit Truetrac rear end.

    Changed the rear diff fluid on my Jeep last month, and few small chunks of metal came out along with drain plug just covered in metallic slime.

    Garage queen vs driving.

    I figured the gap between a 400 000 k car vs a 89 000 car would be wider, just goes to show you could be enjoying your toy instead of looking at it. I know general consensus is it hurts re-sale etc, but hopefully people watch this and see they could be enjoying these vehicles a bit more than...

    Question about claybar.

    Can you clay bar over say a body that already has a coat of wax on it? Or do you need to strip wax, wash with dawn etc....then perform clay bar, or could you get away with over wax. I ask because I have used spray wax as lube for the clay bar.
