    So frustrated right now. Car troubles.

    You have to relax motor by loosing all mounts. If you had transmission repair I would not be surprised if they rested the weight on mounts. I have even moved engine with mounts loose to get rid of vibration at idle.

    2014 jk 3.6 long crank.

    TIPM is probably getting moisture or has corrosion. I know they had a problem with fuel pump so there is a add on relay to convert relay from TIPM to external. Some say dealers will fix for free but that was couple of years ago. Dealers had everything. Here's the story...

    New mower 2.5 acres

    I hope this ordeal is over with. After 400 in it I had to replace the governor rod and spring to get rid of surging. Ordered from John Deere and I had to order spring and rod separate anyway the spring is on rod. I went to put spring on rod and I noticed it was dragging as rod seemed larger in...

    Can thicker oil prevent rocker arm failures in Pentastar 3.6 V6?

    2 grades up and hotter temps doesn't surprise me. Every grade up you run the risk of higher oil temps and higher friction. Oil pressure can go up as well due to the clearance. Your oil pressures are also directly related to oil filter used. It is not so simple as one grade is perfect so it is...

    Can thicker oil prevent rocker arm failures in Pentastar 3.6 V6?

    Oil pressure you stated is normal. I have seen lots of engines with 10 psi at idle from new. Heck one of them was my own 84 F100 300 six which you couldn't kill. I worry more about efficiency than oil pressure.

    Can thicker oil prevent rocker arm failures in Pentastar 3.6 V6?

    I have run 0w20 through 5w30 in my 3.6. 5w30 was sluggish but it could be me. 0w20 is the smoothest of them all. Seems liked vvt works better. I live in Louisiana so we get a variety of weather. No oil usage in 200 hours.

    0w20 vs 0w30 in my Dodge Challenger V-6?

    Like I said I use 0w20 in Louisiana for my Caravan. Oil pressure is perfect and flow is better at startup. I have had it to 6500 rpm on more than one occasion as well as idling and the dreaded Eco mode on while below 45 mph which is 90% of my driving. Change Oil at 200 hours without worrying as...

    Air conditioning not cooling. Is it the evaporator leaking since nothing else appears to be?

    On the LeSabre the most common thing that leaks is compressor clutch seal. Very hard to find unless you can look at compressor for oil in the front. It will get worse but I would top off every 2 years and not worry until it gets worse. Wait until you have to fill every 6 month.

    New mower 2.5 acres

    Got it together. So much wrong information out there. It is running perfectly after a fight. Found exhaust lobe not intake damaged as well a stuck intake lifter. The only thing that makes since is lifters were incorrect causing them to jam. Compression release works now even hot with correct...

    0w20 vs 5w20 Pennzoil in my Dodge Challenger V6

    I run 0w20 in my Pentastar which recommends 5w20. I ran 30 grade as well and according to the manual you can run 30 grade when 20 grade can't be found. When manual was written 0w20 was Synthetic and 5w20 was conventional which Dodge claims 8k on conventional.

    Which oil for new Kawasaki engine FR730V on a Cub Cadet Lawnmower

    If you already have 5w30 use that if not I would swap all equipment over to 0w30 year round. 0 winter will flow better at start up if temperatures drop and 30 grade is acceptable according to manual.
