    Plastic Gas long do they last?

    All I know is that I pray mine last forever. I hate those stupid ventless or self-venting P.O.S.s.

    That was the worst oil chane I've ever done...

    When I went to change the oil on my fiance's newly purchased Riviera, the FRAM filter on there was so tight that I wadded up and ripped off that black sandpaper coating on the filter. I had to grab and twist for about 10 or 15 minutes, loosening it by about a millimeter at a time before it...

    Oil for flat tappets...good article

    Glad I saw this. My 4x4 has a Comp Cams flat tappet offroad spec cam and the real expensive lifters. Looks like I'm gonna be running a bit thicker oil in my rig.

    Havoline 5w30 Synthetic oil

    To each his own. It was either this or Mobil1, and I saved a buck or so. Didn't get rid of the clatter, unfortunately, so I'm going to try an AutoRX treatment with Havoline dino.

    Fram = JUNK

    My Motorcraft filter was a little bit of a pain to get on last night. Had to be aligned JUST right but she worked. I have a Fram on the 1.9L in my 93 Escort that I'll be selling soon. I need to cut that sucker open and see what a Fram looks like after only 1,000 miles of filtration.

    I dented my filter

    Yep, I have that set as well. They are lifesavers. Work for TONS of other jobs as well where more torque than a hand is capable of is needed, but you don't want to scratch/gouge the piece that needs to come off. I always hand tighten and remove my filters, with the exception of my Camaro...

    Havoline 5w30 Synthetic oil

    I just nabbed some of this in the Collinsville, IL Advance Auto store and they were full stocked at $4.XX something a quart. Going to hopefully have the time to change it tonight and see if it quiets up the top end of my fiance's Zetec.

    To all of the light pickup owners. Why did u choose your PSD, Cummins, or Duramax?

    One of my friends said it best when I was trying to make the decision on a diesel pickup. There's a reason why every single road tractor has an inline diesel in them. I am a GM man. Have a convertible Camaro and love it. Built the 350 that's in my 1/2 ton gasser and finally decided I wanted...

    compressors: harbor freight vs. the world

    I have a 30-50 year old (Was my grandfather's and he's had it since before I was born and I'm 28 years old) D-biss that's still going strong. Only problem is that it rusted through at one of the welds. I either have to clean it up and reweld it, or scrap it and get me a new compressor. I'm...

    Oil cans must have been a real PITA!

    I still have a couple cans of different oils (outboard, chainsaw, motor, etc.) and about 8 spouts from my grandfather's garage. Also found an old can of Quaker Maid grease (the stuff is like peanut butter, complete with the dairy queen swirl on top!) I also have a can of washing machine...

    Can't seem to resolve this problem..please advise

    demarpaint, Pulling that distributor might not have been a bad idea. Inspect the inside of your old cap, and check the distributor closely. I had one that was bad on my 88 pickup and it gave me fits before I could figure it out. Retarded/advanced timing, sputtering, stalling...took me awhile...

    opinions: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 7.289

    On one of my other forums we found a virus in our file archives. Out of nearly every antivirus program in existence (including the paid subscription ones that were most recently updated) only AVG found it. I highly recommend AVG.

    What do today's teens consider 'calssic' automobiles

    My grandfather had a 60's Nova convertible in his garage for the longest time. I used to go in and sit in it for hours pretending I was driving. Grandpa also had an old Willis in his junk pile that I would go out and play around with. I fought the mud dobbers and wasps for control of the...

    Why do people treat SAE 30 as an Anti--******?

    I think it's great stuff. For lawnmowers. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />
