    Post your latest oil change

    I run synthetic in our '07 Taurus, but the brand does not matter to me as long as it's synthetic/synthetic blend 5w20. Just got a 5 qt of Maxlife 5w20 yesterday for next week when I'll be changing it.

    '07 Taurus 82,000 (81,9 something but close enough). FL400S filter Mobil 1 5W20. I prefer Napa Gold and Purolator but know the OEM brand is better than one that rhymes with slam.

    Agreed. Since DE is gone, don't care much for it.

    I never cared for football nor basketball because all IT is is back and forth. The main reason I don't watch racing as much is for all the greed it has gotten into. Toyota aside, drivers saying they are going to retire then end up driving somewhere else for another three years? Make up your...

    Is Triple AAA a good deal?

    I hope to get it again someday. Just one tow from 25 miles to the garage cost me $90. a Plus membership is $120 or so.

    Remote Start options

    The one we had in our pos Impala worked very well until its "father" (me) reinstalled the dash after a radio replacement and pinched the wire. Still have to fix a couple things with that.

    What's your earliest car memory?

    The'66 metallic light green LeMans my father had. Got rid of it because of an "electrical" problem. I wish he would have kept that, as 1. I'd be driving it (still) and 2. I would have been able to be a mechanic.

    It doesn't bother me either way. I started to use Mobil 1 in my Taurus but until finances allow had to switch back to regular oil. Besides "creating" jobs, Govt should get the oil/gas/diesel prices down.

    I topped off with half a quart of 5W-20 today

    Like has been said it should be okay. I want to put synthetic 5w20 in the Taurus at the next change. Impala has a LIM gasket that's bad, so I stay with regular 5w30 in that car.

    Rubbing Alcohol into Windshield Washer Fluid?

    Usually I use the orange rain x or yellow prestone fluid, but if I use blue stuff (like now since a case is $9 at Sams Club) I have always added alcohol to it no matter what company makes it.

    Best store-available headlight bulbs?

    I ordered the Extreme Power once and the right burned out within a year. We bought standard 9006 last January and they were okay. Yesterday got a gift card so decided to get another set of Xtravisions as I'd had them in a previous car.

    GM Recall

    Why can they not recall a car I own ('03 Impala)? <img src="/forums/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="mad" title="mad" height="15" width="15" /> My wife said once she smelled "something burning." I told her that if there ever is to let "him" burn. So many bugs in this car I'm giving up on GM.
