    Best coolant for 2005 wrangler

    ...Its a 4cylinder, 2.4 like the PT cruiser. What is the best coolant I can buy, readily available at any auto parts store? I dont think I have seen G-05 for a long long time anywhere around here..... Not sure how this vehicle likes silicates or phosphates or however all that stuff works. Thanks!

    oversized filter for toyota 1.6L 4afe?

    I have a 97 corolla with 1.6L motor. It only holds 3.2 quarts of oil! Not to mention, the filter is a PITA to get it. Is there an oversized option? PS how long OCIs can be run with such a small capacity.
