    Anger about parts store staff...question to you

    I wasted this past Saturday morning going to a local auto parts store (national chain) to get a purge valve for a caravan. The only problem was that the new valve leaked 3 times worse than the one I was trying to replace. When I went back to get a replacement for the new one I just purchased...

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted By: Warstud</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I bet the caliper needs rebuilding or replaced. </div></div> Bingo. Did the caliper carriage move freely when you put the new pads on? How easily did the piston push back into...

    Fleet maintenance system

    I've always used an Excel spreadsheet. It's cheap and easy for anyone to use or look up past maintenance on anything we have. I did the same to handle our payroll. For our circumstance, it would be a waste of money to use anything other than Excel.

    Blizzard headed to New England for Tue

    I can't remember the last time we were forecasted to get 18" to 24" as we are with this storm. Snowblower will earn its keep tomorrow.

    New Shed/Garage, A Couple Questions

    I just had a 12' x 18' shed delivered a few weeks ago. What kind of sub-grade preparation have you done? Please don't just put the shed down on the soil surface (as my in-laws did) or you may have warping in a few years even if the maker used treated plywood. I enclosed a 14' X 20' area (1'...

    2016 Dodge Durango

    Due to a recent accident (truck rear-ended us), we have had several rental cars over the past month or so. I figured I would present a brief opinion of each of them. The first was a 2016 Dodge Durango that was nicely equipped. The Durango had approximately 10K miles and had an approximate...

    Heat is worse than cold

    Not to turn this into a morbid topic, but I know a man who excavates graves for up to 30 area cemeteries. He said he is MUCH "busier" in the winter months of the year.

    May The New War Begin

    The thing that gets me as I'm sure I heard G.M. will be transitioning to an aluminum truck just as Ford has in the not to distant future. Can't imagine them doing that and putting a bullet through their own foot.

    Wanting a Sporty DD next year. 370Z or Mustang 5.0

    It's your money, but you are nuts putting either car through a daily commute of 90 miles...that's just wasting a good car (whether it be the Nissan or Ford). Still get one of the two if you like, just get a comfortable commuter for all the time you spend behind the wheel....although I would...

    Fort Mac is on fire

    I thought that practice was stopped years ago. Pretty sure they have in the US. Suppressing natural wildfire activity is a recipe for disaster. We have controlled burns around here on a regular basis when the conditions are right. You must be watching different news channels. That practice...
