    2008 Cummins ISX CM871 15L 525HP

    My guess is elevated Iron is from sitting for long periods of time where the oil has drained out of the oil rifle. Essentially a few dry starts would explain the elevated iron.

    Installation at Walmart?

    I have had walmart scratch all 4 wheels before. I was able to file a claim and got paid out for 4 brand new wheels with installation from dealer. If the price is right have them do it. Just be sure to take pictures of the wheels before hand just to make the process easier if there is a issue...

    Milwaukee M12 grease gun. I could get by with a manual one but... Cordless impact wrenches, ratchets. I could probably get by with a lot less chainsaw than my 039 and cs-590

    2014 Odyssey Sludge/Varnish

    PCV dumps blow by gasses into the front head. Normal for that engine to have a varnished front head. Had a 2012 odyssey that the front head looked varnished up, back head spotless at 200k. Would recommend to replace pcv buth other than that keep doing what you are doing.

    Is my oil pressure somewhat okay?

    Pretty sure OP has a 4.3 which is SBC based and not LS based. Not sure that the LS pick up o-ring test will accomplish anything in his case.

    4l60e no 3rd or 4th

    Pulled servo out last night, everything was in place and correct. Did notice the piston/servo clearance was very sloppy fit. I do not see how this could hold any pressure. Ordered up a replacement servo.

    MAP sensor issue find in my '11 5.3 Tahoe

    My decel mpg never really got above 50. Swapped in a used sensor from my other vehicle and on the way to work this morning my decel mpg would go to 99. Avg according to tank was up 3 mpg. Hopefully a tank average will confirm results. My old map sensor had quite a bit of carbon in it.

    4l60e no 3rd or 4th

    I pulled my 4l60e out of my 70 gmc with the 5.3/4l60e combo for a rear main seal replacement. While it was out I put a corvette servo in it. I put the servo in because when I would really get on it it would not always hold 2nd gear. Anyhow, did rear main seal, installed trans back in and drove...

    1" drive cordless impact

    What 1/2 impact do you have that is struggling with f150 lug nuts? Use the weighted crankshaft sockets. Never had a issue after that with 1/2 impacts taking crank pulley bolts out.

    08 Toyota Highlander AC light blinking

    If you are looking into compressor clutch, check resistance of coil. Check voltage to coil. Check air gap of clutch. Those are all possible causes. I have seen several issues with wiring to AC system as well, usually the signal wire to tell the relay to activate the clutch.

    08 Toyota Highlander AC light blinking

    Blinking usually indicates a error in system. Could be the low pressure switch is causing it if the system is borderline on pressure. I would check pressure on low side to see if the system is low on refrigerant. 100 bucks does not seem bad to check the system out, assuming you do not have...
