    Anyone with tools that have sentimental value?

    My favorite tool is this Torque wrench. It stays in remarkbly accurate adjustment and requires no batteries!!! When Craftsman was an amazing tool brand sold by a once upon a time amazing retailer!

    Carquest Premium (Blue) 84356 Cut Open

    That’s an interesting price point for US auto parts stores. I got mine about a year ago at a Canadian Carquest for $6.75 Canadian.

    Am I missing something?

    So, my mission to get coils for the LeSabre turned out to be a rather long one. To recap, the order was placed with Amazon on December 15. On December 27, Amazon messaged me that the coils had shipped. On January 1, Amazon informed me that the package was damaged in shipment and was being sent...

    Pennzoil Products at Canadian Tire

    This reminds me I’m still waiting for my Pennzoil rebate from when I posted about getting the euro 0W 30 at Canadian tire a few months ago.

    Wow. Those are impressive mileage numbers for any car and especially Turbo charged models!

    Am I missing something?

    Funny that you ask because I ordered something unrelated about 10 days ago and it arrived in just 3 days. Given how a lot of folks wait til last minute on Christmas items, I'm sure that's the primary reason. That's ok. Those coils are not from Santa!

    Am I missing something?

    ordered (and got confirmation) 3 coils for the Buick on 12/15. As of today, they still do not show as shipped. Sold by Amazon directly and in stock. Should I chalk this up to holiday shipping/covid issues or something else? Order has not been canceled by me or Amazon and Amazon mentions in my...

    Toyota (Finally) Unveils Big EV Plans

    Mistakes are the price of admission in any technical field and have always been a part of the process of innovation. Edison himself stumbled many times before patenting a lightbulb that could actually work.

    Wondering if I created a problem or if it’s just circumstantial?

    Well, I did a little more research at Amazon and discovered that the AC Delco professional a.k.a. gold branded coil is made in Poland and the Delphi unit or Delphi branded unit is made in China. Wondering if there are coils made for this engine anywhere in North America?

    Wondering if I created a problem or if it’s just circumstantial?

    Well my BlueDriver came and I must say it was the easiest thing to hook up to the LeSabre. Here are some screenshots of the reports he gave and it looks like it so it’s showing a misfire on cylinder two. Sometimes the check engine light stays solid but I took it for a short neighbourhood drive...

    W8 Passat wagon now in my garage...gulp....

    I was always a fan of this generation as well. I remember going to look at one and I swear the interior on it was just as nice if not nicer than the comparable Audi A6 which it may or may not have shared the same platform with. Personally, I’m not a fan of lowering only because these handle so...

    Wondering if I created a problem or if it’s just circumstantial?

    Everything on the car is original from new except for the coils which were replaced at around 35,000 miles. At 45,000 miles, I decided to go ahead and do the replacement for the intake manifold along with the lower intake manifold gaskets. These were all of the newer design and are superior to...

    Wondering if I created a problem or if it’s just circumstantial?

    I normally run premium Costco 91 octane alcohol free fuel for the LeSabre. Although the 3.8 was engineered to run on 10% ethanol and you can run it on 87 octane, I like the added fuel mileage and theoretical higher detergent levels of the premium fuel. I basically run this all year long and...
