    Heads up for Canadians, Pennzoil Synth on sale at Can Tire and $25 discount from Penn website

    Curious on this too? Is the gift card only good for oil changes at a Pennzoil change center or is it good for almost anything? I purchased 4-5Ltr jugs Friday at CT but was unaware of the Triangle points/rebate. Guess I'll have to check my bill to see if I received it?

    2017 Chevy Impala Transmission fluid change.

    No. The border, one way, is over 2hrs for me. Any savings will surely be used up in fuel, let alone the time spent to and fro.

    2017 Chevy Impala Transmission fluid change.

    Nearly everything is more expensive up here in Canada. Shipping of anything in liquid form, as far as I know, is strictly prohibited so there zero chance that I will likely find it cheaper anywhere else, unless it goes on sale somewhere, and for a significant amount.

    2017 Chevy Impala Transmission fluid change.

    I just realized Valvoline makes a specific Dex6 fluid ""Valvoline 822405-6PK VV370-CS12 DEXRON VI Automatic Transmission Fluid, 1 Quart"" which I will likely purchase instead of the multipurpose. Its a tad cheaper as well on Amazon. I will check first with my bud at Carquest to see if they carry...

    2017 Chevy Impala Transmission fluid change.

    3.6 6sp. From the bit of reading and info I could find, I concur, not a serviceable filter unless the whole unit is removed. Curious, as I only plan on a drain and fill, how far apart, mileage wise, should I wait until I do the 2nd and 3rd? I was planning on doing this once this fall then again...

    2017 Chevy Impala Transmission fluid change.

    With 50,000 km's on my wife's car now, I want to change out the fluid. (we purchased it used) Is this simply a drain and fill or is there a pan with filter(s) inside that can be changed out as well? I've never really paid attention while under there doing an oil change but my gut tells me...

    Ram 1500 BW44-44 transfer case

    I feel pretty comfortable with the Amsoil, and truthfully, over all the others you mentioned above, I think I'd still go with Amsoil regardless. Not that I doubt those are also excellent choices, but based on the reading I did prior, I don't think I have anything to worry about with Amsoil...

    NEW FRAM TG 9100 CUT OPEN

    Thanks for the cut and paste, 53 Stude. I've been using the TG's in my vehicles for quite a while now and although I have never cut one open, seeing yours reconfirms my decision to continue using them. My wife's car get 2 oil changes per year as does my son's. My Ram, now that I am retired, only...

    Ram 1500 BW44-44 transfer case

    Thanks for letting me know. My Ram currently only has 86,000 km's on it so I think I am likely OK with the amount of cleaning it likely needs? Truthfully, 4x4 is rarely used other than occasionally in the winter towing a couple sleds and once or twice a year putting in/pulling out my boat. So...

    Ram 1500 BW44-44 transfer case

    Sorry for bumping up a slightly older thread but I am curious why the recommendation for the Lubegard P ATF P? I just purchased 2 Amsoil MVATF's for my 2013 Ram Bighorn with the BW44-44 but your post, out of the many I have read, is the only one to recommend the Lubegard. Just curious if it is a...

    New (to family) 2012 malibu with 2.4L

    I believe he stops at first click as I told him to do that but knowing him and trying to get the most in his tank, especially when gas is cheap, he may squeezing in as much as possible? I'll ask him again. Curious, however, what you are getting at?

    What are you listening to right now?

    It was my older sister who got me into them but I don't recall what year? If I had to guess, I would say it was likely their Lights Out album from 77? Europe did a great cover/tribute of Love to Love.

    UFO is a great band. I likely have your song and a couple others posted in this thread somewhere?

    Krown vs Penetroil vs other competitors for rust proofing?

    I suppose that is possible and wouldn't be unheard of this day and age but I, of course, have no idea? I read or was told by someone that they, Krown, are suppose to apply a wax of some sort on these seals prior to spraying their product? I would assume, by the looks of mine, that I didn't...

    New (to family) 2012 malibu with 2.4L

    The purge valve was replaced with an OEM just a few weeks ago. $50 dollars CDN but it did it again like I mentioned in my post above. Question, and it's likely silly, but is it possible the computer would take a few trips/drives to readjust to the new purge valve? From when I posted above, the...

    Here is a post from last year I posted about it. https://bobistheoilguy.com/forums/threads/2008-chev-malibu-2-4-stumbling-stalling.310540/ More from other sources, but trust me, there are a lot more! Again, not trying to be a killjoy, just letting you know in case this happens to you...

    My son has an 08 2.4 Ecotec Malibu and in all honesty, this thing has been a PITA!! I've replaced/done more work on this car than any car I have ever owned. It constantly stumbles and stalls without warning and despite me researching this issue to death, there doesn't seem to be a known fix for...
