    What's the word on Valvoline advanced 5w30

    What's everyone think on the Valvoline advanced 5w30? Haven't run Valvoline in awhile but it's cheaper to run now then my usual Castrol Edge. Like 7 bucks cheaper a jug on sale at Walmart compared to Castrol so was wondering what's the word on it. I take it that it's good being a modern synthetic.

    Which brake pad and rotors are best for a Chevy Equinox

    Rotors faces still rust no matter the rotors... Braking takes it off in no time on just about any rotor. It's inside the vanes and the hub that stays on good. The rotors on lots of GM's still groove really bad, they need to be turned or replaced often here. Those rotors you have listed are also...

    Which brake pad and rotors are best for a Chevy Equinox

    Yeah, the rotors that come OEM on the equinox/terrain, junk. They don't last, we need to replace them for grooving really bad, and causing bad pulsations. I do work as a tech at a GM dealer, we see it all the time. I run element 3s on all my cars, 3 years later still looking good in northern Canada

    Which brake pad and rotors are best for a Chevy Equinox

    Very very very common on the rears of the Terrain/Equinox... Rotors don't last and get grooved bad really quick... The fronts do to but not as bad... The OEM brakes are IMO junk

    Which brake pad and rotors are best for a Chevy Equinox

    Working at a GM dealer, nothing special about the GM rotors... I run element3 pads and rotors on all my personal stuff and will continue... Great brakes for a good price

    2016 Fusion, ptu and rear diff fluid change, recommendations???

    Did the rear end the other day, got and 600 ml out and filled it back up... Oil wasn't that bad coming out, not much on the magnet so I guess it's wearing really well!

    2016 Fusion, ptu and rear diff fluid change, recommendations???

    Thanks guys... I've drained the PTU multiple times and filled with redline 75w140. I've never done the rear though, I'll prob go with synthetic too for that one as well and prob be good for many miles to come.

    2016 Fusion, ptu and rear diff fluid change, recommendations???

    I know the PTU takes 75w140 and rear takes 80w90... Just wondering if anyone has anything they recommend for oils. Should I switch to a synthetic 75w90 for the rear or stick with a 80w90 conventional?

    Lincoln Town Car 3,000 miles Mobil 1 EP 5w30 4.6L

    A guy I follow on YouTube posted his recent UOA on his 4.6 Lincoln Town Car. Ran 3000 miles on Mobil 1 EP 5w30. I found some of the numbers a little off compared to what I usually see in this sight. The viscosity seems really low for EP at only 3000 miles... He said he was testing a k&n that's...
