    1997 Volvo Penta 5.7GSI 5w-30?

    If it was mine, I would use it. In 1997 did the 5.7 have an output of 250hp yet? What boat is it in? What's it weigh? How many hours are on the engine?

    Grease recommendations for RC car differentials

    When I raced, we would fill the diff with a heavy silicone fluid, this was done to prevent the unloading of the inside wheels when going around a turn, think of it as a easily adjustable torson differential.

    too little oil found after oil change

    My apologies sir. I did not read all of it. Some dip sticks are difficult to read, try twisting the sick one way or another. The point of friction wipes the oil off or smears it making it difficult to read. Some dip sticks have a twist in them to prevent this.

    too little oil found after oil change

    I think you should check the oil. You have already owned the car for almost a year, and you think they might have shorted you on oil when it was changed in April 2017? I think you should have checked the oil in April 2017 and once and a while after that. Good luck with vehicle owenership.

    Jalopnik on warming up cars

    I have to laugh at you warm climate guys. If you ever started a engine in the really cold and herd what it sounds like, I bet most of you guys would get scared and turn it off instead of driving away.

    Machine washing a "dry clean only" winter coat?

    Without question I would throw that in the washer and dry it in the dryer. I have washed wool suit pants by mistake, they came out perfect. No dryer for those. My Canada goose parka gets put in the washer also, I just unzip the fur. It goes into the dryer also. Doing so voids the warranty...
