    Bosch D+ D3410

    I have two Bosch D+ D3410 filters. One has a date code of F04H12F1 and has louver holes on the center tube, the other has a date code of F06G18F1 and has circular holes on the center tube. I don't think I really care about the actual dates because these are both fairly new, but I was just...

    Western Illinois Threshers Inc. 50th Annual Show

    Yesterday, my father and I went to see the Western Illinois Threshers Inc. 50th Annual Show in Hamilton, IL. There were many old tractors, a couple oil pull threshers, some garden tractors, some automobiles, and a few Mack trucks. This website describes it more in depth...

    Baldwin Filters - FL1A & FL299 X-Refs (SAE 3/4-16)

    Mostly for the sake of allowing everyone to be able to see this data all at once, I made a chart consisting of Baldwin filters that are either Motorcraft FL1A or FL299 equivalents. Knowing that the FL1A is a very popular and widely used size, the first 3 filters listed are its equivalents. For...

    Micron Ratings - Wix vs NAPA Gold

    As we all probably know, we've taken it for granted that Wix oil filters and NAPA Gold oil filters are the same filters, just re-branded. However, sometimes we come across different information for the filters when comparing O'Reilly's and Wix's data to NAPA's data. I took it upon myself to...

    What size drain plug 2008 Ford Edge

    I've looked all over, including on Amazon, Oreilly's, AutoZone, RockAuto, and JCWhitney... And I cannot confirm which size of drain plug is the correct one. They say either M14 x 1.50 or M12 x 1.75. I have a feeling that for whatever reason some of these sites are incorrectly assuming that the...

    (Wix) Pro-Tec Filters

    I know that Pro-Tec Filters are Napa Silver filters (or at least that's what I've read). Oreilly's description for the filters says 95% efficient at 29 microns, which isn't incredible by any means, but it also isn't horrible either, bearing in mind the dirt cheap price (when buying the package...

    2008 Ford Edge 3.5L Oil Filter

    My father is currently bidding on a bank-repo'd 2008 Ford Edge with under 70,000 miles, one-owner. We test drove it the other day and pretty much fell in love with it. If this were being sold by a dealer, they'd probably be asking between $9,000 to $10,000 for it. Our current bid is $5,500, and...

    Phillips 66 Shield Choice 10w-30 Syn-Blend

    I went to Farm & Home Supply today with my mother as she needed to pick up a bag of food for her horse. As per usual, I meandered over to the oil section just to look around. I needed to pick up a quart of oil for my father's (new to him) 1995 Yamaha Golf Cart (can't remember what it's called...

    [Long w/TL;DR] Cub Cadet 7205 - Oil Filter Choice?

    Okay, so my dad and I have an old Cub Cadet 7205 tractor with the 21hp Mitsubishi diesel engine (and it's got the hydro-static system or whatever it's called, but that's irrelevant lol). We've had it for a long time, and use it out to our 7 acre property out of town for both work and mowing...

    Hypothetical Question On Incorrect Filters

    I've heard alot of stories about quick lubes and what-have-you's that will just throw on any filter that has the same threads and gasket size as needed, even if the filter isn't the correctly specified filter. This incorrect filter could then be seen by the owners, whom may not know any better...

    1989 Chevy Camaro RS 305 TBI - Oil Filters?

    According to Amazon, my Camaro takes the shorty filter - EX: AC Delco PF454, Puro L/PL/PSL15313, Fram PH/TG/XG30, KN-2002, M1-111, RP-10-454... etc. But from what I've researched, my Camaro has plenty of room to fit the larger/longer versions of these filters - EX: AC Delco PF1218, Puro...

    1989 Chevy Camaro RS 305 TBI

    Hi folks, So, a little background first: My parents bought the Camaro off the showroom floor new back in 89. Mom used to use it as a daily [city] driver; until I was born in 94 and they needed a more family oriented vehicle. Of course, we kept the Camaro as a "show car." We drive it to car...

    M1 0w-30

    So, I've read many threads about M1 and it's plethora of grades... but what I can't seem to understand is why M1 0w-30 doesn't get as much love as M1 0w-20 and M1 0w-40... Is there something about M1 0w-30 that makes it subpar in some way? I've even heard that some folks use a 50/50 mix of...

    Cut Open - AC Delco PF47E

    Well, this is the very first filter that I've ever cut open. Normally I wouldn't have any reason to want to do this myself, especially for new filters (I would rather save as much money as I can, you know; college is expensive)... Albeit this filter is for my dad's car (1998 Buick LeSabre...

    A Funny Memory - Old Friend's Auto Tranny

    I was just reading a thread here about whether or not it is beneficial to use Neutral in auto trannies at a stoplight, and it reminded me of something an old friend told me back in high school. So, this old friend of mine had bought a used Chevy S10 Blazer off a guy he knew. Truck had...
