    Ram differential oil change interval question

    I'm not adverse to doing 15k changes in the oil, it is not a money issue, and I understand the reaons for changing the differential oil, but I'm not understanding why GM does not require that frequent a change and has the same brand differentials. Why was my 2012 GMC 3/4 ton that pulled the...

    New 4.3 and AFM question

    Hi-got a 17 silverado with 4.3 and AFM. It is the new 4.3 engine so no experience to speak of on internet, and does have the AFM about which I have questions. There is a device from Range Technology that goes into the OBDII that will make the AFM not work which I find many people with the 5.3...

For me I'd say "general purposes" would be best, carrying on hikes, while riding...

    Overfilled by 1/2 Qt

    Hi-Having been a psychiatrist since 1975 (I am 72 and still work), BITOG is absolutely my favorite site on the Web and this post is why. In my opinion, mild OCD is the best "pathology" for adults in our society to have as it keeps our culture going. It is relatively harmless compared to most...
