    I Have Pennzoil 5qt.Jugs And None Are Exactly Full

    I just bought the jug of 5W20 Natural Gas synthetic at WalMart for my 2004 Outback and just compared the level through the window on the side of the jug and they were all the same. Why did I check? Because I suppose it's possible some tool bag would come along and top his jug up off of mine. I...

    Oversized Filter list

    Once upon a time, long while back, some fine fella compiled a list of oversized filters in all the different thread and gasket sizes. Anyone remember it? Wish it was a sticky, but a search doesn't turn it up either. My interest is in the 1.5 X 20MM, but all of the sizes were covered in the list...

    H-4 Subaru

    Anyone consider the H4 opposed four 2.5 Subaru engine as rougher on oil than any other? Mine's a 2004 SOHC in an Outback wagon original spec 5W30 or 10W30 or 10W40 SL even all the way to 0 degrees F, believe it or not. It has 121K, new head gaskets, no leaks, with a very slight slap when cold...

    One of those crashed in Iraq or Afghanistan awhile back. Hideous when they go down. SO fragile.

    Physics of Daytona

    You should try it sometime. Like wrestling a gator in the swamps of the Keys, except with road rash. Physics don't really enter into the "equation".

    Angry at the NFL

    The TV timeout started years ago. I remember sitting at a Redskins' game (I hail from the DC area) and the kids around us asking why the players were just standing around, they were learning right there what happens on the field when they're at home watching a million commercials. It's gotten...

    Did you know her?

    What happened to her? They want you to buy a digital subscription to read that story--but they then move to a story about the sixteen shootings in ChicagoLand since Friday night, no subscription needed.

    RP 0w10

    Joe Gibbs racing sells a line of racing oils and they're all watery-thin. I'd run an OCI in my subaru but it would probably all leak out before 1000 miles.

    Lower than what and when, Newbie? So YOU say. I'm quite off my butt, Chubbie..

    Yeah, well for all the fracking, we STILL don't have cheap gasoline. And, it's probably the number one reason the economy never gets going. By the time everyone with their service jobs gets done filling their tank to go to work, there's little left to eat on, let alone buy anything. The...

    Used coolant storage

    I thought all shops had an obligation to take liquid automotive recyclables? No? They do here, anyway.

    VSOP and SLOB?

    Those used to be the adds of the day many years ago, an eon. Is Valvoline still selling it? I believe it was a zinc-booster. SLOB was an additive that boosted zinc and something else, moly, phosphorous, can't remember which. SLOB was sold at this or that dollar store. VSOP everywhere. Guys used...

    2011 Hyndai Accent Fluid Choice?

    Use stock everything. Pick a good 5W20, use the Hyundai filter and follow the recommendations of the factory manual, especially with automatic transmission fluids. These new DFI's and 6-speed transmissions want what the factory wants, especially if you have warranty left. I drove the DFI Accents...

    2004 Subaru 2.5 Question

    So, the 2.5L in my 2004 Outback is a 4, it's flat, and it's an opposed arrangement. It's a 16-valve (my 2004 is unless I'm reading wrong) but it's a SOHC. What are the advantages to this arrangement? This dopey question coming from a guy with DOHC 16-valve fours in an upright configurations...

    Winter storage prep...

    Trickle charger, I dose the gas with blue anti-enzyme stuff, start it every week or so, it's jacked up off the front and rear tires with normal pressures. LOTS of mothballs strategically stashed here and there to keep the mice from nibbling. A little spray silicone here and there, then cover it...
