    AAMCO in dc

    I fear for my work truck right now. It's under our companies Enterprise fleet program and they had it sent to this AAMCO that was nearby the area my tire blew out. I handed the keys over and ten minutes later the guy turns to me and asks "the keys are in the truck, right?" He just drove the...

    Gas pump wouldn't fill my car.

    I tried filling up my Thunderbird this morning. I couldn't get the pump to put in more than 11 out of 22 gallons, it just kept cutting off like it was full. Any suggestions or experience with this would help. I dropped the tank last year and cleaned it out and I also out new gaskets on. I...

    Amsoil at 7-11

    I was at 7-11 about an hour ago and decided to glance at the oil they had on the shelf. There were a few rows of the usually name brand oil on the shelf and the whole bottom shelf was lined with Amsoil OE,XL, and signature as well as some ATF fluid and other products. The price on the bottles...

    Gas Tank Overfilled

    I went to a gas station today that I normally do not go to, however I decided to try it anyway since the station had just been remodeled with new pumps and everything. So basically while I was there the cut off on the pump never kicked in, I spilled about a half gallon or so on to the ground...

    Found Old Oil On Shelf

    I was doing some cleaning up and found some old oil on a shelf in my garage, I don't know exactly how old it is. Is there any way to tell? There are like 10 of the Valvoline bottles (mostly the one in the center of the picture) and 5 of the MotorCraft bottles. Would these still be good? <img...

    I found this old DuraGuard PF2 filter in my garage. I think it is at least 20 years old considering that I was told it was purchased for a 1972 Ford Truck. I use FL1A filters on my truck is this the same size? Is it a good filter? Would you guys still use it? <img...

    How did Thunderbird get nickname Thunderchicken?

    I have heard many people call Ford Thunderbirds "ThunderChickens" no matter the year, I was just curious if anyone knew how this came about. I get that chickens are birds and what not, but there has to be a better reason.

    88 Ford Thunderbird Fuel Pressure Issue?

    I recently acquired a 1988 Ford Thunderbird with a 3.8l v6 with 65,000 miles from my wife's grandparents. Upon receiving the vehicle, it had not been started for at least 2 years (that we know of) and it would crank but never start. So, after seeing that it would not start I replaced the spark...
