    finally i figured out why oil turns brown in use

    This is nothing new. I noticed this as long ago as the mid seventies, when 10w-40 was commonly used. Modern oils will have just as much sediment as older oils, too. The only remedy is to periodically shake the used oil containers, or possibly store them upside down for 6 months out of the...

    neighbor vandalized my floodlight, my options?

    (chicken running away and flapping wings) why talk to a creep? He's a known trespasser and vandalized my property. I don't get it. This isn't 1950 anymore when people brings baked cookies over to welcome their new neighbors <img src="/forums/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="grin" title="grin"...

    2015 Honda Accord LX noise level/frequency

    The coarse asphalt paving on the roads makes a lot of noise and smooth tires won't cure that. Besides a dealer rep told me Chevy was using ContiPro Contacts because they are rated one of the quietest tires made. Turn up the radio. That sounds like a flip remark, but actually it helps. Our ears...

    neighbor vandalized my floodlight, my options?

    I really sympathize with Cutehumor as I've had my problems like this as well. They always turned out to be kids, which are almost harder to deal with than adults. It's becoming more and more apparent to me that technology like video, motion detectors, etc., are sometimes the only way to deal...

    neighbor vandalized my floodlight, my options?

    The neighbor certainly seems to be the guy but I think Cutehumor will need more than that as "proof". <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: spasm3</div><div class="ubbcode-body"><div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted...

    neighbor vandalized my floodlight, my options?

    I still haven't read anything in this thread about proof as to who the culprit is. Don't make an assumption until you have some evidence. There could be somebody else involved. It might be a different neighbor or some kids. You would not only feel like an idiot but could be legally liable...

    Do oil sales dry up in the spring?

    I just picked up a 5 gal jug of Pennzoil Platinum Full Syn for $19.95 at Bi Mart in Salem, OR.

    What's the best US Driving Holiday?

    Pick a city with a direct flight to the region you want to tour. You don't need to fly directly to your destination (Jackson, WY, ie). You can drive 500 miles a day so don't let the distances scare you. You could drive from Phoenix to Yellowstone in about two days. I would recommend buying a...

    Roofing Panel H-Clips

    IF the seams between the sheets of plywood land right over a joist no H-clip is needed there. Maybe they planned well and used mostly full sheets.

    Pilot does touch and go without landing gear

    I think he raised his gear to gain speed so he could keep flying. For some reason when he raised the gear the plane dropped 6-8 feet and he made some ground contact.

    Aftermarket speakers...

    Radio Shack used to have decent but cheap replacement speakers for most sizes. Speakers in cars sometimes get water or heat damaged. Even bug infested.

    Still fighting my Subaru: Idle issue continues

    The nominal voltage for a lead acid cell is 2.1v, so 12.6 is cited as the normal voltage. However, both of my vehicles with fairly new batteries usually read 12.13 - 12.3, maybe because of things that are 'always on' or whatever. If you have a really bad cell you would be at 10 volts or lower (...

    Choice: Buick Encore vs. Nissan Rogue

    I have driven the Sonic with the same 1.4 turbo four and 6A transmission. Very nice, although I prefer manuals. I think the Rouge only comes with rubber band tranny.

    Another Arizona cop dash cam video

    It's one thing to see one of these videos long after the threat and another thing when you are there in real time.

    neighbor vandalized my floodlight, my options?

    It would be interesting to find out who is doing this. Does the homeowner that lives near the OP have any kids? Are there any other kids in the neighborhood? It could be some kid doing this, rather than a VP of some company. I don't know exactly how the floodlight is pointed, but there is...
