    Particle Size Filtration in Baldwin Filters

    I have a some Baldwin RS3518 (Freightliner) air filter cartridges that I plan to use attached to a dust collector in my woodworking shop. The Baldwin website has no details about particle size filtration...just efficiency w/fine dust(?size),load and pressure data. Does anyone know what...

    When to change the oil in a lawn mower?

    Bror, Which Honda engine do you have and which ST filter are you using? $14 for a genuine Honda filter at the Simplicity dealer is a crime! I'm not sure that an uber-filter on my 16hp GXV530 is very critical. I believe it has a low pressure oiling system so most of the oil bypasses the...

    Nooooo!!! Sludge in 97' Camry

    "ARX on such a sludged engine is just as bad as flush." And this is based on... Sorry but the evidence on this forum, the thousands of postings in the additive forum and my own personal experience directly contradict this staement. I don't work for AutoRX. Mark in NC

    Nooooo!!! Sludge in 97' Camry

    I had the same situation as your cousin with my '97 Camry 4cyl at ~130,000 miles but was having some smoke on start-up, getting some blow-by smoke, a few engine seal leaks and an oil pan leak. After completing 2 AutoRx treatment and rinse phases (all w/dino oil) the smoking, leaking and power...

    All VW/Audi BITOGers chime in!

    Daughter recently bought a '96 Passat TDI w/157,000 miles. Previous(orig) owner maintained the engine and other mechanicals very well as evidenced by an inch thick maint. folder but neglected the interior and exterior. So it needs lots of cleaning, door handle/electric window repair and a...

    Good auto tranny cooler?

    Scooby, You may want to wait until you get the truck. It should come with a cooler and a transmission fluid temp gauge. I have a Tundra and haul a 5000lb trailer and have had no problems with the stock Trans cooler. No warranty problems to worry about either!

    Delo 30 wt HDEO + Chevron 5W30 Mix

    Getting black oil stains off new white concrete

    Walmart also has a product called "Revive-a-Drive" that I used for multiple old oil stains on a concrete drive and garage floor. Tried kitty litter, Superclean, Greased Lightning, oven cleaner and this stuff was the only thing that worked. Needs to soak into the concrete for a few hours, a...

    How many people here prefill their filter?

    On my '97 Camry 4cyl the oil filter is inserted vertically (open end down) so pre filling would make a mess. I usually crank the engine a few times (after filling and replacing the filter)to pressurize the system and then start it up. Never hear any unusual noises. On the otherhand, My '91...
