    Rodent repellant spray

    My Tacoma had its harness chewed up by a squirrel the other day. It’s getting replaced. Do those repent sprays work as a preventative? How often should it be done? Which one do you recommend? Thanks.

    Troubleshoot this Problem

    Hey peeps I’ve got a 8 year old craftsman power washer with on off switch easy start with the Briggs 7.75 engine. I replaced the carb today and was wondering if the arms on the carb are oriented the right way? It started the first time for about 2 mins ran rough and died. Now it won’t start. New...

    Power washer issues

    My craftsman with the Briggs and Stratton will not start unless I use starting fluid. It stays running afterwards. Granted it gets used a handful of times a year. I run my home brew ethanol free fuel since there are no stations around me that offer E0. Took the carb apart and everything was...

    Filter change to extend oci

    Does changing a oil filter help extend the life of the oil between oci. I've done a 10K interval with a 5K Toyota filter change on my 2015 Tacoma and added maybe a half of a qrt to top off. Granted I would need a uoa to see the progress but I was curious if let's say I went to 20K on the oil...

    Power steering flush

    2008 Toyota Camry power steering fluid looks pretty dirty. In order to flush out the system does the car need to be running? Or can I get away by turning the car on and not start? I was going to disconnect the return line and turn the wheel multiple times then pour in new fluid till the fluid...

    Testing old coolant

    My dad has 08 Camry with 80K miles. He has never changed the coolant. I had a gallon of new Toyota long life so it tested the new with the coolant tester as a base line. Then I tested the Camry and it tested in the same spot as the new coolant. Is it necessary to change the old coolant. The old...

    Amsoil XL 5W30 1.5LT

    Thinking on giving this oil a try in our Honda 1.5LT since it's got the problematic fuel dilution issue. What are your thoughts? I'm currently running Amsoil SS 0W20. My last oil change I got about 1.5 qrts fuel in the oil pan, roughly 30% olm and about 6000 miles. Honda told me to monitor it...

    TCW3 and direct injection

    Has anyone ran this combination? More so with a turbo? Honda 1.5LT is the engine we have. Almost 20K miles and no oil rise on the dipstick if y'all are wondering.

    Reusing metal fence posts

    I've got six metal fence posts that need to be redone. Has anyone broke away the old concrete from the existing pole to reuse? Or do I need to get new poles because it's a waste of time? Thanks

    oil change places prices

    My dad just had the oil changed on his 2015 Rav 4. 72.00 with coupon for full synthetic and filter. Like a good son I told him next time I'll do it for him. He used to work at Toyota and get great deals on oil changes. He no longer works there. Simi retired. Can't believe they charge that much.

    Home AC

    Hey fellas I noticed today water draining from my 11 year old ac system. I noticed my system has two drains. One of the drains with a j trap or at least they tried to make one, lol goes to a drain in my bathroom. Every year I would add 50% bleach and 50% water. The water draining to the outside...

    An update on my Ethanol experiment

    My non ethanol experiment seems to be working. Since I can’t find non ethanol fuel in my area. I decided to make my own via YouTube. A little octane booster and Amsoil quick shot made my mower run better since owing it ten years ago. I did the same for my Sthil weed eater. Had it for four years...

    Honda 1.5L gdi turbo

    The book calls for 0W20. I was thinking Castrol Magnatec or Amsoil SS. I plan on following the olm or 10K interval. Your thoughts please. Thanks.

    Pretty impressed non ethanol fuel yard equipment

    Gave it a shot by making my own. 5 gallons 93 octane mixed with 32oz of water and blue food coloring. Let it sit for 2 hours then drained the water. Made roughly 4 gallons of gas. I have octane booster but so far the lawnmower seems to like it. Cheaper than buying tru fuel.
