    What is "Plan B" if I can't get Amsoil Z-Rod for My 1990 Corvette ZR-1.

    ZDDP gets used up, so an oil with a few hard weeks of romping on it may likely have an equivalent % of available ZDDP as any of the new ILSAC GF6A lubricants. So replensishment may be in order depending on usage. This can come in the form of flat tappet cam break in lube supplement available...

    Plumbing - What is this?

    No, he did the "get out of Cali" thing and moved East from Santa Clarita, CA. Still a bit of adjustment as they had pretty decent weather over there. They just went through a bad heat wave with temps over 110 for many days and mid 80's during the nightime! You will never see me in...

    CRV's, are they that good?

    On my Japan- built Honda Fit sport, the molded door card, at the armrest, was molded improperly and it fell apart internally under the fabric skin. This is under warranty second year. They said they wouldn't cover that - owner "abuse". I wasn't in the mood for a fight over this insolent...

    CRV's, are they that good?

    I don't think anything in that range is "that good" but meh may be better than "that BAAD!" My BIL likes his CRV and supposedly he has one of the nasty tiny turbo diluters grenades.. But it never experiences COLD cold starts in Arizona. That may be saving it, IDK. I find all these cars a...

    So what's the "go-to" PEA based fuel additive? Indirect and direct injection engines...

    None for me. Had nothing but issue from "no improvement" to permanent "long cranking" after treatment. I try to run top tier fuel most of the time. The last stuff I ran was Gumout Regain on a DI ford. Didn't seem to hurt or help.

    Chest Freezer doesn’t get cold enough?

    7 deg F is well below freezing, but how hot is the garage ambient temp? The compressor running constantly is a concern but if it's over 80 in the garage it may likely do so. Cant say for sure, even though I am in a log cabin in the woods, I don't have any "freezer out on the front porch"...

    The Fram TG now has a nitrile ADBV?

    One would think that the bearing clearance tight enough, the molecular cohesion and surface tension of a viscous fluid would hold some oil in there and above. Engines I have worked on are old pushrod V8 an run 30 or 40 grade conventional. Ford 385, 335 and FE, BBC, SBC, RB Chrysler. Buick...

    Oil suggestions for 2021 1.5T GM Ecotech

    Many people forget about this car; Six speed automatic too - not CVT. A lot of employees where I used to work have them and they have good luck with them. Have the BIL check the tires. just a couple pounds too high can lead to a hard/crashing ride. Maybe it has a DIC readout of the...

    TVS120 Tecumseh correct oil capacity

    Correct Lubener, I posted a link to the shop manual for his engine on post #14. His engine you screw in the dipstick. Most guys think you ALWAYS screw in the dip stick to check level which is not true. There are incorrect level checking videos on YT. "Rules of thumb" are no good here...

That's a high enough reliability rating to make this new Chevy model the Highest Ranked Compact SUV in Initial and Long-Term Quality. If you're looking for an SUV that you can depend on, this is...

    TVS120 Tecumseh correct oil capacity

    Many HONDA and TORO H shafties you do not screw in. I should never have said MOST - my mistake. I corrected it. The point I am trying to make is IT DEPENDS and some manuals are not clear. DO not assume. Do not go by google linked Youtube videos. I experienced this rampant misinformation...

    The Fram TG now has a nitrile ADBV?

    I saw the older memo date( or number) , then I saw the date code blocks thinking the 22 was current year. I forgot they go by decade, so 2 must be year 2012? Is that you take on it?

    TVS120 Tecumseh correct oil capacity

    That's a larger vertical shaft Tecumseh. I read some snapper mowers used these. In my manual for a Toro (Lonchin) on a big snowthrower it explicitly states that you do not screw it in. I have seen also Honda where you do not twist lock or screw in for check, Mexican and North America...

    Chest Freezer doesn’t get cold enough?

    My fridge at home jumped to 47F yesterday when it was 85 in the house. Stupid thing has just one small folded condenser on the bottom of the unit with have of that laying on a compressed glassfibre pad! Very hard to impossible to clean. So I laid on the floor and at least i got the 1/2 lb of...
