    Chevy Cobalt / Ecotec 2.2 Fuel Injector seal set

    Cleaning out garage and found new-in-box AC Delco fuel injector seal set for the old Cobalt. It was an 04 or 05 with 2.2 ecotec. AC Delco brand AC Delco part number 217-2762 GM part number 12602543 Cobalt is long gone, and I don't think we'll be buying another. If this is something you need...

    Bosch fuel pump quality

    I have to replace the fuel pump on an '80s Town Car w/ 302 V8. Present fuel pump lasted less than 15,000 miles (Airtex, made in Mexico I think). Any experience with the Bosch fuel pumps made in Czech Republic? There is one available for my application, but no hardware is included (although the...

    New Aftermarket Master Cylinder - '89 Town Car

    I have to replace a leaking master cylinder on an '89 Lincoln Town Car. The options I have available are all the new Chinese master cylinders -- Raybestos, Centric, Cardone Select. It appears that there are no new Bendix branded master cylinders anymore, but the last of those I bought were made...

    ATE Coated Rotors for BMW

    Any experience with these for BMW, specifically E90? Or better to pay extra for the OE BMW? I've used the Ate Original (Germany) and Brembo (Italy) rotors in the past with good success on other BMWs. The ATE Coated are made in China, at least the part numbers for my car, which likely explains...

    08 Ford Escape - Motorcraft front pad differences

    We have an 08 Escape V6 that is due for front brake pads (and rotors too, most likely). Two types of Motorcraft pads are showing as fitting: BR-1047-B (Ford Retail Spec) and BRF-1047-A. I'm asking here because I don't have a lot of experience with Ford parts, but I know a lot of folks here do...

    Pennzoil HM 5W30, 5.5k, 05 Chevy Cobalt 290k miles

    Here is the recent UOA for an '05 Cobalt with 290,500 miles. Oil used was Pennzoil HM 5W30, and top off oil (1 qt) was Pennzoil 5W30. Pennzoil has been used for the past few changes. The sodium level caught my eye as being high, but it is possible that some Valvoline was used to top it off at...

    07 BMW 525i, Pennzoil Ultra Euro 5W40, 6,258 miles

    Here's another UOA for PU Euro 5W40. We drained this a little earlier than usual. About 2 months ago, the electric water pump failed while driving, and I wanted to see if any coolant was mixing with the oil. Blackstone noted no problems, although they did note the viscosity was low. <div...

    Mercon V / Maxlife for Ford AOD

    I've got an '89 Lincoln Town Car and want to change the ATF fluid and filter soon. It has the Ford AOD transmission. I was going to use either Motorcraft Mercon V or Valvoline Maxlife, but I found some discussion at a different forum that stated Mercon V fluids were not good for the clutches...

    Bendix CT3 brake pads - made in China

    Just an FYI - I ordered a set of Bendix CT3 brake pads for my Toyota Tundra. Received them today and they were manufactured in China. I will use them, as I have heard too many glowing reviews for them. But I just wanted to let everyone know, as country of origin for products is an important...

    AC Delco 5W-30

    Anyone know of any good deals on the AC Delco oil? Only place that I've seen it is O'Reilly's for $5.99 per quart. Seems like a good Moly/Boron add pack and low volatility. Thoughts? <a...

    2007 BMW 525i - 6,813 miles - Mobil 1 0W-40

    Here's one more Mobil 1 0W-40 UOA for the pile. Previous fill was with unknown bulk oil from the dealer the car was purchased, so I think there are some traces of that oil in the M1 that was sampled. Universal average of 7,800 miles shown in on right. OIL Mobil 1 0W-40 SM MILES...
