    250 billion to american jobs

    When pondering any company's meaningless "pledge" remember that it is just a marketing ploy. Walmart is a soulless corporation pretending to care so they can get more of your money. Don't be duped by the dollar amount or the sentiment. As for Walmart demanding lower prices from their suppliers...

    Top 10: Which vehicles will last 200,000 miles?

    That article is an absolutely useless piece of you know what. I wonder what iseecars.com paid USAToday.com to run the "article." The website is a joke, too.

    Monitor Question

    I am not a computer expert at all, but anytime you're diagnosing anything you need to eliminate the simple stuff first. So like dparm said check the cables first. I'd take them off and look at the connectors carefully and reinstall. Then I would check the graphics card, if it has one, and make...

    Daytona 500 Winner

    Restrictor plate racing is completely unpredictable and the winner could literally be anyone of the 43 drivers. But, Hamlin is a good choice, he's hot right now, or The Little E, he's won before and has the genes. I'd like to see Carl Edwards get off to a good start for once so I'm pulling for him.

    Falken's new Ziex ZE-950 UHP all-season

    I have not driven on that tire, but I did have a few sets of the Ziex 512 a few years ago. I put them on Panthers (Crown Vics, Grand Marquis' and Town Cars) and by itself that tire greatly improved the way they handled. They made those 4000 lb. cars stick in the twisties. They were great in the...

    The Mystery of the Missing Coolant: come weigh in!

    You've received some good advice so far, and some not so good. Adding anything to a cooling system, like a "car-repair-in-a-bottle" is a really bad idea, especially at this point. It is way too early to add any crud to your cooling system. Adding that stuff should be a desperate, last chance...

    RockAuto and shipping costs

    I used to buy a lot from Rock Auto and talked them up to everyone I knew, but this shipping nonsense will be the end of them if they don't wise up. I hope someone with some sense at Rock Auto reads these kinds of threads from the last few months.

    Any reason NOT to get a Quick Strut vs. individual

    Being limited to whatever spring they decided to include that day is just one reason that a quick strut may not be right for you. A quick strut is designed to appeal to the buyer that is looking for the convenience of having it all assembled and a "quick" installation. The quality of the...
