    What do you notice about cars on the road?

    Older 90s Lincoln Town cars- always have the rear dragging the ground and usually some gangster rims. '04-'08 Acura TLs- Usually driven by girls lol. GN- I see one maybe every couple of years randomly but it's either a skinny nerdy guy or a gangster that bought a complete piece of [censored]...

    Oil viscosity and fuel economy

    I need a car to try the 0w-40 out in. I really like the specs, maybe I'll run it in the Murano but I have way too much Redline 5w-30 now.

    Green GC in the Astra!

    Interesting. I run a synthetic in my TL which gets tracked occasionally in 100+ degree weather and you go on and on about how dumb I am for using a synthetic in this car. Now you're using a synthetic in an economy car that I'm just going to guess will never see a track...... Lets have just a...

    Racing Oil Filter?

    Define what you need. Better flow? Better filtration? Both? The Pure One is a great filter, if you've had no problems, might as well stick to it. I doubt the burst strength will be tested harder under racing conditions than it will during a cold start with very thick oil. Or in other words, if...

    I Hate Murphy -- A Lot!!!

    I'm sorry to hear. I feel for you. My details are so close to yours there's no use in posting them. I'm afraid to get the "new" one replaced again.

    From the Obvious Department...

    There was a place, I think it was called Poplarville in MS when I was young. Always fun. My dad is very color blind. The redlights had red at the bottom, green at the top. He just happens to have the most trouble with red, green, and brown. I remember so many close calls as he learned the light...

    30 or 40 weight vs. 10W-30 or 15W-40

    I appreciate you guys posting the chart and my argument is in no way with you guys. But that chart is complete and udder [censored]. I've been an oil nerd for years and I've watched engines with the valvecovers off, started them with a 20w-50 in slightly colder than 0C and watched for flow to...

    Type F transmission fluid

    I'm currently running Redline's Type F in the TL right now and love it. The GN has always had straight type F or a mixture to get the desired shift quality. In a trans not designed for type F, you're usually safe going with whatever the the worst thing that's going to happen from running type...

    Oil viscosity and fuel economy

    I noted a long time ago that I get better mileage in the TL going from a 0w or 5w-20 (can't remember) to Amsoil's straight 30. I fully expected it to feel a little sluggish but I would swear it picked up a couple hp. I didn't make a big deal about the fuel economy because it was in the 1-2mpg...
