    XP laptop won't connect to 4G LTE portable hotspot

    I've got a VZW MiFi 4510L that does a great job with everything I've connected to it, until now that is. I've tried to connect my old Toshiba Satellite P105-S6024 to it and I'm getting nothing. It happens to be my only XP machine, but I don't know if it's related. I've always used a USB modem...

    2002 F250 SuperDuty ????

    I'm looking at picking up (no pun intended) a 2002 Ford F250 SuperDuty XLT crew cab. It's a 2WD with the Triton 5.4L V8 and automatic transmission. It has just about everything on it, including running boards, towing package and a Curt R5 fifth-wheel. The truck has been used for towing an RV...

    OEM replacement key suppliers?

    I need to pick up another key for my Mitsubishi. The design has the key-less entry and alarm buttons integrated into the key's head. I want to get another of the same design. The dealers around here are all asking $250+ out-the-door, including ~$50 for programming. Clearly, they've all lost...

    2006 Dodge Dakota???

    Okay, I'd like to know what you guys think of the '06 Dakota. Experienced opinions would, of course, be preferable. Have one and love it? Would you like to personally put yours through the shredder? The good, the bad and the ugly, let's hear it. The one I'm looking at is a low-mileage 4-door...

    A new meaning to "urethane topcoat"...

    Well, it looks like I've finally got my very own "You'll never believe this..." story. I was cruising up I-75 late this afternoon and, just after changing lanes, I noticed a cloud of something coming out of the bed of a pick-up truck ahead of me. At first I thought it was grass, like you often...

    Pennzoil Platinum European Formula 5W-40?

    Has anyone here used this oil? Anyone seen a UOA on it? There is plenty of info on the 5W-30 stuff, but I haven't found anything on the European Formula. Most of what I've seen elsewhere amounts to inferences that it is a bulk-oil product used by oil change shops. I've found it available by...
