    BMW ATF: Texaco ETL 8072-B

    Is there an ATF that's compatiable with Texaco ETL 8072-B? Think a ETL 7045E ATF would be compatible? <a href="http://www.bmwtips.com/tipsntricks/Tranny/GM2000Chart.jpg" target="_blank">http://www.bmwtips.com/tipsntricks/Tranny/GM2000Chart.jpg</a> It's for a BMW / GM 5L40-E (or 5150?)...

    Imploding oil filter?

    What do you guys think of this? Shouldn't the filter be under pressure? And that would make it explode, not implode? <a href="http://www.ls2gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=230377" target="_blank">http://www.ls2gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=230377</a> <div class="ubbcode-block"><div...

    funny quote from Monaco F1 race

    I think it was Massa who said it in qualifying but I'm not sure. "The brakes are going all the way to the floor now." Without missing a beat someone responds on the radio, "OK, keep pushing harder." I'm laughing, the commentators are laughing, and I'm wondering did the guy mean push the pedal...

    BITOG stickers?

    I see a lot of people who are in San Diego or Socal and it got me thinking. I'd drive right past a fellow BITOG'er and never even know. So how about small, discrete BITOG stickers? I'd be willing to overpay for something like that if the $$ went to the forums.

    Open M1 bottles at Walmart

    I've heard that some of the Sube guys have bought M1 from Wallyworld only to get home and discover that the bottle had been opened and was about 1/2 empty. Sounds like someone figured out a way to trick the returns people. So check your bottle before you buy....

    What does the sulfated ash % mean?

    1. Does sulfated ash come from sulfur in the oil? And could that sulfur harm Nikasil cylnider liners? 2. Can sulfated ash deposits be bad for rings? Can it abrade them? 3. With the newer "euro" oils having sulfated ash %-ages closer to 0.5% would you use a oil with a +1%?

    LC20 or Auto-RX in a E39 BMW 530i?

    What do you guys think would be better for a '01 530i? LC20 or Auto-RX? Engine has 80k miles on it and probably had some dino oil changes that stayed in for a little too long.

    Jeep/Aisin AW4 tranny filter (and fluid)

    Anyone know where to get a quality tranny filter for a 1991 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L? I think it uses the Aisin AW4 automatic. The jeep stealership wanted $80(?) for a filter. I've heard Napa sells 2 different filters. One has brass mesh, the other uses SS mesh. It's been over a decade since I've...

    gear oil for better mpg's

    I'm going to change the tranny and diff fliud in my g/f's Frontier. I don't want to use MTL because I heard it causes wear in Nissan trannies (4-cyl truck tranny is the same as the 240SX). And it seems to thin for socal weather (bearing noisse in my other trannies). My choices are MT-90 and...
