    Oil Filter and Air Filter overrated?

    I've been using the Tearolators in my Toyota for over 7 years now. I currently have a pretty good stock of them I got for under $6 a filter shipped. I've yet to open on and find a tear in it. I've used both the old gold cans the PureOne and the New Model that came out a year ago the Purolator...

    SuperTech Synthetic 5w20 (6,576 miles) Genesis Coupe 3.8

    I haven't contributed to this forum in years and even back when I was contributing, I did more lurking than anything else. I'm just not as smart as you people, and just don't put the time into analysis and cutting filters open. Anyway, I've gleaned a couple nuggets over the last week that I've...

    Oil For Old Pontiac

    Hello, I'm going to try to get a neighbors car running for her (and maybe even buy it from her), it is a '64 Pontiac with a 389 that hasn't run in 6 or 7 years, and I do not know the condition of the engine. The car was restored in the early to mid-'90s and is in very good condition, but...

    Dexcool Or The Green Stuff

    My '08 Chevy 2500HD 6.0L is now past 5 years old, has 34K miles on it and I believe that it is time to change the coolant. In prepping to do the job I discovered that the radiator in these vehicles do not have a drain on them and this makes the job a bit harder and more involved, and this has...

    Why does Nissan still use 3,750/3 month

    There may well be a technical reason why Nissan has decided to keep the 3750/3 mo. OCI, but until someone talks with the engineer that decided that, we may never know. It may help to learn a little Japanese before you begin your journey. I do not put it past auto manufacturers, American...

    Which club are YOU in?

    I've been pretty loyal to M1 over the past decade in the cars and trucks that I have owned, had a short affair with Redline in my Corvette and there's still Redline 75W-90 in the diff of that vehicle. Shell Rotella T5 in my Kubota diesel tractor, although I have only owned that for a few years...

    What Oil "LONG POST"

    I'm not one of the experts at this site, not even close. I'll only parrot what most people say around here, but here is my .02. Use the recommended viscosities that the manufacturers are stating to use, or use the 0w-xx that matches the recommended operating temp viscosity. Do a search on...
