    P0420 code and exhaust leak

    F150 check engine light came on yesterday. Did a scan with Torque Pro and P0420 Bank 1 came up. Looking though whatever I can see on the app the 02 sensors seemed to be operating okay. The offending ratio was barely out of range. Heat gun showed hotter behind the cat but it was hard to get good...

    Playing with Electricity.

    I've done all sorts of stuff. Remodeled houses, built furniture, rebuilt engines,and so on. One thing I've never fooled with was electrical wiring. Always a little scared of it. My big garage came with several different weird outlets I didn't use. I don't know what all they were doing in there...

    EBC Brakes

    I just ordered EBC rotors and pads for the 2010 Camry. Did I waste money? It looks like the choices were China rotors or EBC for not too much more.

    Icon Impact Sockets

    Anyone have any experience with them yet? I need a set of 1/2" deep metric but it's not something I'm going to use a lot so I'm looking at cheaper options that still have a little quality. I think they're made in Taiwan. HF currently has a 20% off coupon on Icon tools.

    Shield Rebate

    S&W has a $50 rebate on Shields. PSA has Shields for $249($259 no safety version). That's a mighty fine deal. Other outlets may have similar prices. Edit: Rebate only applies to 9mm Shields and certain .380s. <a href=""...

    Amazon Tool Sets

    Standard dealing with Amazon deals warning apply. Only one or two in stock. Price could change at any time. Verify item is correct and the price is actually a decent deal. The Blackhawk tools show USA as COO. Wright does not list a D984B, they show only D984. All SAE. Stanley Proto J54116 12...

    Filter Change Drama

    I changed the oil in the Camry yesterday. I got the filter housing off. Cleaned her up real nice. Put on the new orings. Buttoned her up and added oil. Reset the maintenance light, started her up, and filled out the maintenance log. Dumped used oil in jug and cleaned up everything. While...

    E85 Experiment.

    I was in TX for a week and ran a couple tanks of E85. Fuel economy was down 4-5 mpgs on the second fillup. Torque Pro showed a tank ethanol content of 72% on second fillup. 49% on first. Cost was 12% less than 87 but economy was 25% less. Definitely not economical to run E85 at DFW prices. My...

    F150 5.0 Lost power

    2013 F150 with 5.0. 88K miles. Last night truck ran fine for about 3 miles. Engine stumbled and then starts losing power over the next couple miles. Ends up without enough power to move but will still roughly idle. All the gauges are normal with no engine lights. I don't see anything going on...

    F150 Front Differential

    What a mess. Looks impossible to remove the cover within fooling with major components. A drain plug would have been nice. Fluid was white. I managed to suction out a lot of it. I topped off with some old Supertech 80w-90 I had laying around. Maybe next year I'll try a smaller suction tube to...

    CRC Driller Red Grease

    EP lithium complex. Anyone have any experience with this grease? I just bought a 35 lb pail for a song and am wondering how good it is as an all around grease(wheel bearings, ujoints, etc). <a...

    Trans Fluid Change Strategy

    I've finally decided to change the factory fill in my F150 at 65K. Ordered a MC filter and a case(12qts) of Mercon LV. System capacity is 13 qts. It appears dropping the pan and changing the filter will require about 7.5 qts to refill. How would you go about using the 12 qts? Exchange 4...

    Will I make it?

    Yesterday I filled the F150 with super thick, not in owners manual, not SN, Delo SD 15w-30. What are my odds of making it to next oil change? Will oil make it to the cams when the temps dip to 45F? <img src="/forums/graemlins/Trolling.gif" alt="trolling" title="trolling" height="30"...
