    2014 Lexus RX450h Idemitsu 0w20 UOA

    My RX's first UOA for your viewing pleasure, don't see a lot of these on the interwebs. Huge count of start stop events, my wife does not know how to keep her foot steady. Filter used was WIX/NAPA gold. Refilled with STP Syn HM 10w30 with another WIX.

    UOA: 2004 YZF-R1 1758mi

    The oil was in the sump at least 2 years, up to 4, it's been so long I can't remember. When the oil went in, the filter was never removed, so there was that much of RT6 CJ-4 with about 1200mi on it. Oil dumped according to shift feel, K&N air, XG 7317 oil. Filter still on (8k mi factory...

    C&P Mopar 5083285AA Oil Filter

    This guy was taken off a 6.7L Cummins. Really a virgin filter, just north of 700 miles, and 4 hours of idle time. Uniform all the way around, pleats ripped when a mediocre amount of pressure was applied. Felt like a normal filter in other words. The can was definitely industrial grade, my tin...

    The new mistress

    Sold the Sportster, and the replacement is finally here. After riding my friend's Mega, I decided to get one. 275 Pro Carbon, fitted with DMR V12 magnesium pedals. Can't wait to take it out. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> <a...

    ~3 yrs old Napa 1515 C&P

    Installed 30 of July of 2016 - 5/10/19. Took it off the Sportster way sooner than intended because I sold it, and wanted to share the pics <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" /> Super 76 was in there, VR1, and a variety of stuff used to top it...

    Harley cooling issue

    The Sportster has been somewhat of a concern lately. During the summer I have seen temps peak at 190 in traffic, and 195 after 20 miles at 4k rpm = awesome. Now that the weather is cooling and on some nights after my 40 mile commute I come to my destination and the oil temp is at 170-180...

    2500 mile guarantee, how old is this jug?

    Was at Danner to pick up a pair of boots, and they had a corner with all kinds of things. Thought I'd share a snap of this jug. I didn't mess with it, but wanted to see the mfg date.

    Frankenbrew 07 IS250

    There have been all kids of talk about additive clash and oils not working to their "full potential", or whatever other things that drove people to use one oil brand and weight. There are even people that still believe that synthetic and dino can not be mixed, or you can't go back once you use a...

    Genie unlearns remote?

    The unit is called Silentmax 1000. First is was the wall mounted padlock thingy. I didn't bother troubleshooting or reprogramming that, just let it hang there. I have no clue if it relates to the issue or not, but worth montioning. Now the remote. I click the bottom, the opener gets a signal...

    What is a non intrusive way to publicize gofundme?

    An 07 Sentra is not equipped to handle a high speed frontal collision. Without any more detail, a kid's last trip needs to be arranged, and back to the title.

    Winter tires, downsizing rim size.

    So I'm playing with the idea of buying dedicated winter tires, on rims so I can swap and go when need be. I haven't had a real winter consistently around here, few weeks here and there. Last year was decent, but the A/S Dunflops did reasonably well on the roads. I had a bad day getting up to Mt...

    Keeping a Ram alive

    So my cousin is down 3k due to a 48RE going tango uniform, just after 100k in a 07 3500. Had it rebuilt with upgraded components, which exactly I can't remember/he was vague. This is as close to forever truck as I can think of, and he is on the same page, so he wants to make every thing as...

    04152-YZZA3 122xx miles

    This guy went in when Lexus dealer did the carbon fix work at 73,3xx miles on the clock. At 73,398 I dumped their bulk Mobil 5w30 and replaced it with Valvoline Full Syn with ML tech in a 10w30. That was dumped early at 78272 due to the IS hating the oil, the cams rattled almost every start up...

    RX450h ATF change.

    Got under the RX today to do its initial drain and fill. 18.6k miles. It was infinitely easier than the Beretta was, just like a manual tranny. The fluid looked a shade darker, and few shades darker when compared the two spills on the concrete. The color compared to the 2nd drain and fill on my...

    Oil catch can installed on the IS

    Put together this little guy for the IS. A few thousand miles (3 I think) after getting my recall work, the valves already looked like they were accumulating, unless they did a [censored] job cleaning the valves in the first place. The HF filter needed the drain valve replaced as it was spring...

    ATF for my hybrid?

    So I plan on doing drain and fills on my RX450h. The fluid is WS, but I am looking for alternatives. I have seen all kinds of non definitive mess on the internets, and I'm sure this post will only add to the mess. But there is always(OK, sometimes) someone that shines with ultimate wisdom here...
