    Picked up a 2015 Kia Sedona SX-L

    Congratulations on the new purchase. My oldest daughter bought an 2015 LX last month. She came down from Virginia to visit two weeks ago and I liked it.

    Looking in center tube 2- Baldwin

    You can't tell anything about the center tube in these pictures. The only thing I see appears to be the glue on the base plate missing on the right side of the first picture.

    Briggs & Stratton SAE 30W

    Is it also -13 in your garage? My unheated garage is about 25 degrees warmer than the outide temperature so it would have been around 12. That makes a difference.

    General Exclaim

    I had them installed 12,000 miles ago on my Subaru June 29. 205/50R17 no complaints. Twin to the General AltiMAX RT43 with a 700 UTQG for $85 is a great price IMO. Your size is also 700 UTQG.

    Difference between Magnatec and Edge "Full Syn"?

    It's all in the ingredients. The Castrol website says Edge with Titanium Fluid Strength Technology is their strongest oil. Just like Amsoil SS, Mobil 1 AP and Pennzoil Ultra Platium, the strongest oils cost more. That's the difference.

    :::You've Got To Buy A Fleet Of Trucks: Which One?

    I agree. Type of business makes a big difference. Definately wouldn't buy a bunch of big pickups to deliver auto parts. What I see mostly at the big chain stores are Chevy Colorado and Chevy Sparks.

    New Subaru FB25 - Taking Suggestions

    I used Pennzoil Ultra 5W-20 in my FB20 up to 60K miles until it changed to GTL and disappeared off the shelves. Since then I've used various versions of Mobil 1, Castrol and Royal Purple and couldn't tell the difference in either with the exception of Magnatec 0W-20 making the engine noticeably...

    For the over 50 crowd

    Seems easy enough depending on what kind of shape you're in. No Rower and Bent-Leg Body Twist for me though.

    electric pressure washer recommendations

    The only one I've owned and still have is a Task Force from Lowe's that I bought on clearance for $58 in 2010. I only use it about two or three times a year though.

    Taking It Easy on a Cold Engine - Why?

    I live in south and my car is garaged so of course the colder it is, the longer it takes for the blue light to turn off. In my Impreza, I go when the light shuts off and the idle go down simultaneously at 120 degrees. I wait because it would bother me psychologically to put my car in gear when...

    Discount Tire snapped off my wheel stud

    I'm glad the guy owned up to breaking your stud and told you. I bought new tires June 29th from Walmart and returned last month after 7,000 miles for my first ever lifetime rotate and balance. I've always done rotations myself so this was a new experience for me. What happens? The tech...

    It's cool like that. Only 3.7 quarts? Does it have a 1.5T?

    xx6607 or xx7317 or xx9688

    I didn't know ST and Fram use the same numbers. If that's the case and you have room, is there a 3593A? That's the largest volumn of the M20x1.5 thread filters that are close to 3" Outer Diameter (OD) with going too wide. I made a Fram chart a few years back but I'll rewrite it below. My...

    Can stains on vinyl wrap be removed ?

    B-12 Chemtool from Wal-mart? That stuff is powerfull enough to remove stains and the color out of anything if you rub it hard enough. Go easy first if you try.

    Should strut rod spin freely when turning top nut?

    I may be off but I thought the top of the piston rod sits in a groove on the strut mount. Is it seated properly?
