    Cub Cadet PTO won't re-engage after running a few minutes

    2007 Cub Cadet 42 Inch Zero Turn Mower Came with the house we purchased last year. Runs great but after a few minutes of cutting, if I push the PTO switch down to disengage the blades, all is fine until I pull the knob back up to re-engage the blades. At that time the blades will not...

    Really? Brittle rings and cold oil???

    There is a forum member over on the Pilot forum who just responded to an owner who lost his engine with 118000 miles on it. This member has posted this statement which I find to be, well for lack of a better word, hogwash! "This seems like oil starvation. It will take a full tear-down to...

    Has Honda VCM changed for 2019 Pilot?

    First Honda product I've owned, 2019 Pilot AWD. I have read about the VCM problems in the past on these vehicles and also about the aftermarket "muzzlers" or other products to prevent the VCM from kicking on. I have also read that the 2019 models have a different system than the one that was...

    Hyundai/Kia Reliable?

    Maybe just old school (although I am also old) and remember when Honda, Toyota, VW etc were first coming to the states. Took them a long time before they were reliable and accepted in the mainstream. Kia and Hyunda were later arrivals and really had a bad reputation for many years. They were...

    Had to change out the fuel tank on my sons 04 Buick Rendezvous. The replacement used tank did not come with the fuel pump/fuel sender so I had to swap it out from the old tank to the replacement tank. I had the old tank on sawhorses next to the car, and the new tank directly in front of it...
