    Yikes wasnt looking to get people mad at me. Im not saying I expect them to know everything, but it was just amazing the stuff this guy was saying, thought i'd share it. I work in a drug store, and I know how stupid customers can be, I see them everyday. Asking if we sell things we obviously...

    autozone sure can pick em

    Was in autozone today, overheard something I didnt know before. A guy was buying 10w-40 oil for his car, the clerk told him not to get it. According to him, it's obsolete, fair enough. But the reason it's obsolete? Because although 10w-30 and 10w-40 weigh the same, 10w-40 requires the engine be...

    Who drives stick shift in rush hour traffic?

    I agree with origin hacker. Manual is great, but when you get stuck in traffic, going up hill, you suddenly wish you were driving something else.

    GM back in #1 spot...

    <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> That whole #1 spot is purely psychological. Who cares if you sell the most cars if you're doing it at a loss (like GM). You can't keep it up for too long. Toyota certainly needs to be careful though. If its key selling points such as reliability and quality are...

    Is this a sign of Power Steering Pump going bad?

    I think a sign of a PS pump going bad would be like my car, where I can be turning, and then the power steering cuts out completely. Another would be like my friends car, that completely burst when he was making a turn.

    I had a 94 corolla that did the same thing, sometimes for up to 10 miles. What worked for me was I took the gauge cluster out one day to replace a bulb, and when I put it back in it worked 100%. So try that, may work for you, disconnect the wires, take it out, and maybe give it a gentle shake.

    Honda Shortens ATF Intervals, Again

    <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> Critic, why would they do that if shortening the ATF change interval doesn't make a difference? or if brown Z1 ATF is still good? <hr /></blockquote> I never said it didn't make a difference. I said that replacing it more often than recommended...

    Subaru pinging

    Thanks for the input guys, he's gonna change the plugs to NGK for now and see what happens. I doubt it's carbon, it's been doing it for way too long now. It's not octane, he's used a higher rating and still the pinging is there. Maybe it wasnt hydraulic lifters that was replaced, something was...

    Hi, this is a question for my dad, his 2003 subaru outback, with about 25,000 miles, 4 cylinder auto trans, pings. He changes the oil every 3000 or 3 months. The car has mostly short trips of less than a mile each way to work, but everyonce in a while he'll take a long trip and get it nice and...

    Let's make a list of the 10 worst GM cars ever

    My dad bought a pontiac phoenix new a long long time ago, and he cant get over how bad that car was. There was a problem with the car, I think it was one of their first FWD cars, and when he was turning one day, the car spun out of control and did a 360. He took it to pontiac, and they told him...

    Waste of time and money

    I agree AT, another thing I have found is sometimes when you try and "do it right", or do some PM to the car, I always end up breaking something else.
