    Plastic bag vs Car

    Worst I had so far was a plastic grocery bag floating down the highway got caught on my mirror, made a bunch of racket and blocked the view. Couldn't reach it without unbuckling, so I left it. Came off on its own when I got down to 20 mph. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div...

    06' V6 Accord 12,462 miles Penzoil Platinum 0W20

    Did this one a while ago, just neglected to post it here. More highway trips this time. At some point I had to replace a torn intake hose, plus reseal the oil pan using hondabond. I'm pretty sure the intake hose tore on my previous analysis, while the oil pan sealing happened this time around...

    Nope, not factory. This is what it would look like from the factory. <a class="lb-image-link" rel="shadowbox[7665159971f0ee4ce9]" href="" title=""><img...

    PP 0W-20 10,065 miles Accord V6 6MT

    19 months and 10,065 miles of use got me these results. According to average speeds from fillups, fuelly is saying I do 2/3 highway and 1/3 city driving. I usually drive at very low rpm except when accelerating, and I shut the engine off when I am going to be waiting at a stop light for more...

    Survey: Auto or Manual transmission?

    I counted them all up, interpreted confusing answers, added my manual vote, and here is what I came up with: Manual: 20 Auto: 9 Neutral: 1 Manuals don't bother me in traffic. The worst part about driving manual in traffic for me is imagining all the clutch wear going on. Autos [censored]...

    Greatest filter of all time (sarcasm)?

    WIX 57002 Cut open

    I manhandled the thing with a screwdriver, that would explain any tears. But the joining of the two halves and how they are inset with the filter caught me as odd.

    WIX 57002 Cut open

    WIX 57002 This filter came out of a Mazda CX-5 2.5 with an OCI of about 7500 miles. No obvious large metal flakes or media failure. Started cutting it open with a hacksaw a little above the seam, little did I know, I was cutting into the base! I got a little suspicious after about a 1/4" of...

    '13 Honda VFR1200 Motul 10w-50, 5,300 miles.

    My dad was strongly considering one of these when they were coming out, his thought process was: $16K is a little too expensive Its ugly And the biggest problem, it has a smaller gas tank than his current VFR 800 AND gets sub 40 mpg.

    Valve covers off pictures

    This is from my previous accord, a 2005 2.4 5mt. It had about 150K miles at the time of this picture, I had only changed the oil once since buying it, I used a semi-synthetic penzoil. So this cleanliness is thanks to the previous owner. I did not clean this! Got it from a dealer, so had NO...

    Ultra... Take THAT Pennzoil - w/pics

    Holy oil that is an awesome score! I wouldn't even know what to do if I saw a jug of oil without a price tag on it. Also, I wouldn't really know what to do with that much 5w-30, other than throw it in the brother's car or the lawnmower. I'm going for 0w-20 from now on in mine. I just cannot...
