    Why do parts stores deliver for free to shops?

    Definitely not getting paid $15 USD per hour. They don't even pay $15 CDN per hour here for drivers. Also minimum wage is $13 and will soon be $15 in a couple years. You don't need an account, I've called the auto parts store if I'm broken down in driveway, and had things delivered to me for...

    A good experience at Walmart

    Why not just charge it up or jump start? Instead of swapping out a battery due to operator neglect (parasitic draw) that didn't die because of warranty reasons? This is what causes new battery prices to rise. The new battery is gonna die in a few weeks unless you disconnect it or run the car...

    Dexron vs Type F ATF in Power Steering

    Using regular dex/merc atf which has friction modifiers will make your pump noisy and may cause the pump to wear out prematurely. I deal with a lot of 80's and 90's fords and type F is the stuff to use as they didn't switch them over to regular dex/merc until the late 90's / 2000's If you...

    I've been told that the ratio was based on the oil's capabilities at the time. 50:1 is standard today and should be fine in everything. I mix Amsoil sabre at 100:1 for my equipment as per the directions and haven't killed anything yet.

    FR10-1 is the kit and FR10 looks to be the replacement filter. Doesn't appear to be made by fram anymore or any direct cross reference. However spin on coolant filters are available and you'll just have to find one that matches the thread size and gasket size for the head.
