    I own a 19 4Runner and yes they are a cartridge- have been for at least 8 or 9 years, so I don't know what the "orange can" is about.

    What oil in the new 7.3 Ford gas engine?

    What was the first synthetic oil you ever bought?

    Mid 70's Mobil 1 in a VW Rabbit. Sent them a nasty letter because it used the M1 like crazy when it used almost none on whatever regular oil I'd been using. They sent me a refund and said something like "yeah some engines do that". I wouldn't touch M1 for many years after that. Use it...

    Not impressed with Deka batteries

    I've had great luck with Deka deep cycle AGM's sold by Sam's Club. Had a pair of paralleled AGM grp31 on my travel trailer that lasted almost 5 years. They were bought in the east as Duracell. They died finally on a trip out west and oddly Sam's doesn't seem to sell deep cycle AGM's in the...

    US/Canada Border Crossing

    I'm an older white male from the south- I've read that that is a targeted segment on the Canadian side- seems a Canadian prosecutor stated they were the biggest group arrested for having undeclared firearms. Also read some real horror stories of people having their RV's or regular vehicles torn...

    Ford Oil specs

    The regular Mobil1 5W-30 with the "Advanced Full Synthetic" label now shows it meets Ford WSS-M2C946-B1. The big question is did they change the formula or did the existing oil get the certification? I have a stash of Mobil1 5w-30 that doesn't show the B1 spec and some that does....all bought...

    Ford 6R80 transmission

    As for durability of the 6R80> In the Transit at least the number of frictions and steels varies according to which engine is in there. The 3.7L engine gets fewer than the ecoboost and diesel. Don't know if this is done in other applications of the 6R80. And it isn't just a crossmember to...

    Parts store stupid customers

    Went in to a local AP store looking for a rear drum brake spring for my Ford F series. Guy looks and says they carry NO brake parts at all for Ford pickups. I of course said that can't be, Ford pickups are the number one selling vehicle in the world..... So he spins the monitor around and shows...

    A thumbs up for Fluid Film

    I love that problem is it is hard to find locally. One John Deere dealer I've bought it from by the gallon in the past no longer carries it and claims to never have carried it!

    what is friction modifer/limited slip additive?

    I have changed oil on my F350 rear axle with LS probably 5 times in 200,000 miles. Don't know why but several LS additives I tried did not do the job. Only the Ford LS additive worked. It sure does stink!
