    Car Jack Recommendations

    I am interesting in purchasing a car jack. Any recommendations on a 3 ton rapid jack? I am curious how the Harbor Freight ones perform? I only have two vehicles and do 4 oil changes a year, suggestions?

    2014 Honda Civic LX 1.8L

    Bought a 2014 Honda Civic LX 1.8L Automatic. I am curious what oil everyone recommends since I live in Las Vegas year round and have two little kids. I do a lot of stop and go driving because I drop them off at daycare. Should I just pay attention to the Oil Maintenance Reminder? 50%? 25%...

    first trans fluid change in '12 Camry

    I am also a fan of 30k drain and fills! What are we talking about here... 1 quart Toyota WS = $9. So maybe $40 for a drain and fill. I believe the piece of mind is more important to me than to believe that this fluid is LIFETIME. If you need help with doing the 2012 Toyota Camry...

    1999 Toyota Avalon 127,000 miles

    After a closer review (little no name shop in town) of the Toyota Avalon it shifted kinda hard. After looking at the engine compartment closely there were leaks in different places. The mechanic recommended trying to get it for $1,600 or totally staying away from it. I decided to stay away...

    1999 Toyota Avalon 127,000 miles

    About to buy a 1999 Toyota Avalon with 127,000 miles tomorrow and would like some suggestions on which motor oil to use? I have been using M1 5w-30 in my wife's 2006 Toyota Sienna. Is PU going to do better in an older engine with this mileage? You are speaking to a novice, please any...

    Insanity workout?

    Insanity is a great cardio workout that involves moving in ways your body has not moved in a long time. Buy yourself a GREAT pair of cross trainers (shoes) before you start! If you are hurting yourself then slow down and work on your form!

    Oil Change Question 2010 Honda Accord

    I have no evidence at all... I am just a little picky about these oil change intervals. He did follow the oil life indicator so maybe I am over thinking everything. I would just hate to buy it and then something horrible happen!

    Oil Change Question 2010 Honda Accord

    My brother has changed the oil 6 times in 52,000 miles on his 2010 Honda Accord. I will be driving it for the next 6 months for free, then I may buy it since his lease will be up. I am no mechanic but I do believe in Synthetic Motor Oil and change intervals of 5,000 - 7,500 miles. He was...

    Valvoline Maxlife vs. Toyota Type IV

    I dropped the pan on my Toyota Sienna and everything looked amazing! The magnets had nothing on them, the pan had nearly nothing on it, I could have eaten off of it (just kidding). I did put a new strainer and new OEM gasket on! Then, I tapped into the transmission cooler line and 12 quarts...

    Valvoline Maxlife vs. Toyota Type IV

    Did you ask for that price? Or is that just what they gave you? I had to ask for $5 a quart! I believe my dealership wanted $6 something per quart! What dealership in Michigan?

    Valvoline Maxlife vs. Toyota Type IV

    Gonna stick with Toyota Type IV ATF since I got a case of it for $63 including tax. The Valvoline Maxlife ATF isn't carried in either of my 5 local Walmarts! Thanks for all the replies I appreciate the insight. Maybe I will switch to Maxlife on my 2010 Toyota Corolla that takes Toyota WS Fluid

    Valvoline Maxlife vs. Toyota Type IV

    It is for my wife's 2006 Toyota Sienna LE 3.3L V6 which has 65,750 miles on it! I do not care about how it shifts, how it feels, all I care about is will the transmission last to 200,000 miles? Keep in mind she travels 10 miles round trip a day. Average speed is probably 30 mph. I do not...
