    Mobil 1 ESP now available in 5qt jugs in the US

    My 2015 Tacoma V6 says to use API SN. I don’t see that designation on here. Nor Dexos for that matter. Does this meet those specs?

    Post your latest oil purchase or even filter.

    I bought a 5 quart jug of Pennzoil Platinum High Mileage 5W-30 at Walmart using my new Walmart Plus account. I forgot that that Walmart Plus delivery, even though it says free, isn't. They use DoorDash which tacks on $7 for delivery.

    16K on Mobil 1 M1-102A oil filter

    That’s a Tacoma, right? On mine the tiny drain port became clogged with dust and debris and it overflowed rather than drained. I had to push a thin rod though to clean it. Something to watch out for.

    Odyssey oil burner...what oil?

    Have a 2002 Odyssey. I don’t know how equivalent they are, but when I switched to the 5-30, oil consumption immediately stopped. I have about three years and 50,000 miles on the 5-30 with no issues

    Harbor Freight recalls more jack stands

    HF's masking tape is usable. Everything else there is junk. I certainly wouldn't trust my life to anything they sell.

    First cell phone

    Mine was also a Nokia 5100. It worked great until my toddler threw it into the baby pool. Upgraded to a Motorola flip phone. Thought it would be the last phone I ever needed to buy.

    Gl-5 or gl-4

    Here in the US, GL-5 is much more common also, but I go to the trouble of buying GL-4 online. I feel it's worth it for my Toyota manual transmission. <a href="https://www.widman.biz/uploads/Transaxle_oil.pdf" target="_blank">https:/<wbr>/<wbr>www.widman.biz/<wbr>uploads/<wbr>Transaxle_oil.pdf</a>

    Well written article on why ANY trans flush is bad

    My takeaway from this Blackstone article of 10 months ago is that ATF should definitely be changed if it has been subjected to excessive heat. <a href="https://gallery.mailchimp.com/f641390cba42169db49e0cd6e/files/80941b6c-e7eb-4d2e-92d8-dc27d276c1fe/August_19_Eng_newsletter.pdf"...
