    Garak, actually it was good because it had to go in for some warranty work unfortunately. <img src="/forums/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="frown" title="frown" height="15" width="15" /> So far replaced: Front Engine Mount Strut Mount on both sides and one complete strut (front).

    Any friends of StevieC here ?

    Guys, I'm alive and well and so is my dad (thank the man upstairs). My dad had been really sick with a pneumonia and was admitted to the ICU at the hospital. He pulled through and they sent him home and he seems to be over the pneumonia. We honestly didn't think he was going to make it but he...

    What oil would you consider or say is a cleaning oil

    Aside from Restore which is an excellent oil from the chats I have had with Terry Dyson who worked on the formulation with Cummins, I'd have to say Amsoil Signature Series because it uses an Ester Base oil carrier for its fantastic detergent package. I was going to try this in a neglected Toyota...

    What's this nest under the hood?

    This is why I live in a country where the weather makes my face hurt (cold). It keeps these sorts of pests in check. <img src="/forums/graemlins/LOL.gif" alt="LOL" title="LOL" height="19" width="15" />

    Over-the-top break-in oil change recommendation?

    I always change it a few times in the first 5,000 miles to get all the break-in swarf out of there. It can't be seen with the eye other than the metal flakes in the filter but if you do a particle count you would see it in there. Oil is cheap, engines are not so why not dump the garbage...

    US/Canada Border Crossing

    One of the reasons I got a Nexus Card to avoid this as much as possible. Although there are still guards in the booth there is no questioning for the most part. Occasionally they will flag you to see if you are declaring things because it's on the honor system but it's rare because your...

    Pennzoil Platinum new front label.

    I listen to talk radio in the van all day long and every 3rd commercial it seems is a Pennzoil commercial about it being super pure and made from Natural Gas so this must be in line with that.

    9th Gen Civic Cvt Filter

    I would have drilled a couple small holes in the bottom of the plastic battery tray to allow the water to drain out of there. I'd also spray the ground cable under the battery tray with a protectant to stop corrosion.

    Legacy style layout? Still available?

    The dark theme looks like the old way. <img src="https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/attachments/usergals/2019/05/full-22880-33004-dark.png" alt="[Linked Image]" class="post-image" style="height:auto!important;max-width:100%!important;"/>

    Just use the snip tool. Blow it up as big as the screen will let you for the best quality before snipping though.

    Fram Ultra PentaStar - Canada

    PartSource and CTC are too expensive and that is if they have it to begin with. <img src="/forums/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="frown" title="frown" height="15" width="15" /> I spoke to my local parts places in my neighbourhood yesterday when I was working from home and they can't touch RockAuto's...

    Brake Fluid DOT 3

    I change brake fluid every 2 years regardless of mileage because it likes to absorb moisture. Have never had a caliper, wheel cylinder seize up or abs distribution module go bad and no brake lines replaced. The fluid always comes out clean instead of rusty. I use any shelf oil that is a major...
