    Rant.....

    about people. Specifically the low life's who cause damage to other peoples property and simply walk away or steal or tamper with others property without permission. A little bit about where I am coming from: Almost a month ago, my wife's car was backed into.....in our driveway. Now this is the...

    Stihl FS 56RC

    2 weeks ago my trusty 8 year old Featherlite failed to start. Not sure what happened as I used it the week prior for the first cut of the season and it ran fine. It had fresh gas, I took the carb off and cleaned it as well as various other checks and adjustments and it didn't even try to start...

    Featherlite weed eater head seizure

    Just wanted to share a video that helped me in the past few days with my weed whacker. I use a cheapie model Feather Lite FL20 because the price was right (free) and it works well in what I need it to do. Aside from having to change the fuel lines that rotted out it has worked great for the 5...

    Long QT syndrome?

    Has anyone ever heard of or experienced this? Through a recent genetic test in relation to my daughters disability (autism), it was found that both my daughter and I have type #6 of this condition. My understanding from the cardiologist is that it causes a delay in bottom ventricle of the heart...

    Something odd...

    This is regarding my wife's 2012 Fusion with the 3.0 liter engine. The car has 21,000 miles on it. This morning my wife went to go to the store and when she turned the key all she got was a solenoid click. Not even a slow crank, just the clicking. I went check on things, and the eye on the stock...

    Messy oil change

    Okay so this is a first for me. Sure I've gotten spot of oil on the driveway before but nothing like this. Done an oil change and true rotation on my little brothers truck. Drug out compressor and tools, jacked truck up and put on jack stands, placed oil pan and took off plug. My brother was...

    Plug gap change between 2011 and 2012 f150 5.0 lit

    Anyone know why the plug gap on the 5.0 F150 was changed from 0.041-0.047 in the 2011 trucks to 0.049-0.053 on the 2012 and up trucks? Long story short, my truck had been having a rough idle situation. I googled and searched on some Ford forums I'm a member of and found that some trucks had...

    Nitto Crosstek?

    Anyone here tried or have experience with these? The Michelin LTX A/S currently on my truck (factory) are all at 6/32 with 32,xxx miles on them. Not quite time to brain rack about replacements but I have been looking around a bit. The 265/60 R18 size the truck calls for leaves a lot to be...

    Oil capacity?

    I brought my 2012 5.0 liter to Wally World this morning to have the oil changed and tires rotated. I know, I know, but I couldn't get an appt at dealership and I go back to work tomorrow. I opt to have my oil changed at an establishment rather then do it myself while the truck is under...

It has been a problem trying to wash my vehciles but with an absorber towel to dry the car after the problem has been all but eliminated.......until I sealed both my truck and car with Collinite 845. Now the water just rolls right off and by...

    Poor gas mileage.........

    This is a pic I snapped yesterday on one of our work trucks, its a 2012 F-250 with 6.2 liter. I wonder if it idling for 3 days would make it dip that low lol <img src="http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b150/bigdaddyII/Work/2CD3852D-556A-42CF-8EE0-0A57582C6403-12756-000001757DD31A47.jpg" alt="" />

    2012 F150 and Fusion

    I have these pictures in a thread in the Detail forum, but they are in a thread asking for instruction, so I am posting the finished products here. I ordered some Collinite 845 but it only came in today, so the truck is clayed and waxed with the Collinite as of today. The car was clayed and...

    Collinite 845

    I just ordered a bottle of Collinite 845 after hearing of its durability and longevity. I was looking for paint protection for my truck and car for at least 6 months before reapplying. I researched and found out all about applying it thin and so forth, everywhere I looked says to clay the car...

    Wifes new truck..

    To start another thread off of the "New Truck" thread I had for my 02 Ram. Long story short, the Ram was beginning to have expensive problems racking up one after the other and the head gasket blowing was the last straw so to speak. I ended up trading her off for a new truck for my wife and I...

    Uh Oh…

    These are shots from my cousins daughters car. It's a 1996 Buick Century. The story is that the car had to be towed home as the transmission was slipping. There was transmission fluid in the radiator. It was suspected that one of the transmission lines in the radiator busted, so I went and...

    Whine. Bearing?

    Hey guys. The vehicle in question is my 02 2wd. I am recognizing a increased noise lately. It sounds like I am constantly driving on cement, not the typical wheel bearing "whomp whomp". The front bearings were already changed, and I had a bit of problems with the passengers side hub until they...

    Crunch........

    Hey guys, was in a fender bender of sorts last night. I am impressed in my truck in the way this all turned out. No one was hurt in either car, it could have been more serious but I was reminded why I have no problem filling up a full size truck with gas rather then a car. With properly working...

    No drain plug?

    I bought a Bolens 21" cut push mower towards the end of last year from Lowes. It has the 5HP Briggs motor on it. I used it 4-5 cuts last year, and wanted to change the break in oil before I cut my yard today (bets on an interesting hurricane season anyone? lol). I flipped the mower over and...
