    Havoline LifeLong 5W30 (And other flavors) Minor Price Drop 6qt @ $26.44

    These 6 quart boxes are super handy, take up as much room as 4 quart jug. The bag pours super easy and you can even refill it with the waste oil, which I don’t do.

    Best Aftermarket radiator and where to buy it?

    yea ive noticed that most auto parts chains sell the cheapest stuff they can , stuff you can get online for half. I bought a new ND alternator for my daughters Toyota that was the spitting image of the one I replaced and it was 30% less than a reman from the auto parts store.

    Rental Cars - how do you treat them?

    When I was younger I treated them terrible! But I grew up and now I treat them like I own them. The major rental companies won't rent to anyone under 25 and here's why.

I have noticed that some mechanics seem to...

    Old motorcycle filter cross ref

    I just did my first oil change on my 2021 Nissan Frontier 3.8 v6 4x4 with 5020 miles on the factory fill oil, which I have sent in to Blackstone and am waiting on a report. I refilled with 5 quarts Supertech 0/20 and a Mahle, made in Japan, factory oil filter. The filter was under $11 and the...

    5w30 in a car spec for 0w16
