    Help Me Build a Cheap Waste Oil Filter!

    ^^^^ this will work good for PCMO. I have one of these and took the scree / strainer out because when I pour in the 3 gallons of 15W40 into my Cummins it takes a LONG time... I kept the screen and pop it back in for instances when I want to strain oil. Just my $0.02

    First Riding mower - Help me out.

    FWIW, my take is my boys are moving on and momma and I ain't getting any younger, so I bought a used 2002 LT150 last spring. I thought it was a really good deal at the time. Maybe not as attractive now, but still worth the money to get into a genuine Deere mower. I have had to do some work to...

    Oil filter recommendation needed

    I use OEM (Mopar) on our T&C and Jeep. I use Mopar or Fleetguard on my Cummins. I might switch the Jeep to Motorcraft FL-400S going forward with Super Tech oil. Just my $0.02

    Ford 6.7 power stroke crankshaft breakage.

    When I was shopping for a diesel truck about 5 years ago to pull a camper I came across several Ford diesel engine issues. Most were 6.0L and 6.4L, but a few 6.7L issues. I found lots of injector issues which is usually due to poor maintenance and some rotating assembly issues like you are...

    Does this Motorcraft FL-910S look genuine?

    I get what you are saying but you have to look at more than just the cost of the filter. What is the total cost of ownership. I look at it like my mother who use to coupon shop. She'd spend hours driving around to different stores to save marginal amounts of money. In the end it was more...

    Does this Motorcraft FL-910S look genuine?

    Looks identical to the one I bought at Autozone Sunday. I would normally go to Wally world to buy it for $3 instead of $9, but didn't want to drive the 10 miles to buy just 1 filter... Just my $0.02

    2010 BMW X5 35d M57 Twin Turbo Diesel 10kmi Delvac 1300 Super 15w40

    in short yes it does. EGR just recycles exhaust through the inner cooler and back into the intake. The OP's car is like the old style diesel with just clean air and fuel in the intake, no more exhaust gases. The crankcase soot comes mostly from blow by in a high compression diesel, so less...

    2 stroke oil with 5000 ppm sulfur diesel good idea?

    I don't think you don't need to add lubrication. Buy quality fuel and motor on. There are plenty of old diesels out there running on straight diesel fuel. Just my $0.02

    Pulled this off a John Deere today

    It's because it has a Yanmar engine. What is the piece of equipment? BTW my translator app says it translates to "oil filter" (Japanese to English) Just my $0.02

    Poor maintenance by previous owner

    Drain and fill is probably the way to go. Can you magnetize the drain plug or put a magnetic drain plug in? That would probably help during this process. Just my $0.02

    How do you regularly track a mutual fund?

    Usually there are no guarantees when investing... I use the historical performance in Fidelity to gauge how well a fund did compared to other indexes. It just gives you an idea and I agree it shouldn't be the only reason you invest in a MF. Just my $0.02

    How do you regularly track a mutual fund?

    I use Fidelity for my retirement. They have details on the mutual fund that is more than the average person would care about. I personally want to know what is in the fund, what are the expenses of the fund and what is the historical performance. That being said I use the Apple stock app to...

    K&N performance silver 4k.

    I didn't mean to offend or upset you. The filter looks like it was twisted during installation. I'd be curious to see what a filter looks like right after you put one in and tighten the cap before running the car. Do you lube the ends of the filter so if it tries to twist the media it might...

    Mobil 1 now has "Fiat Chrysler Automotive MS-6395" specification

    Finally they do this when I decide to move to Super Tech in the van... I have been chasing Mobil Super Synthetic for the last ~4 years for this silly van and now they make the regular stuff approved... :ROFLMAO: Just my $0.02

    2002 Ford Super Duty 7.3 Diesel Oil Questions?

    Couldn't agree more! Buying an oil that meets the manufacturers spec is important, clean fuel is just as important IMO. Don't buy cheap fuel from unknown stations. Just my $0.02

    K&N performance silver 4k.

    IMO the twist looks to be from putting the cap on. Do you overtighten the cap? Is this filter the same length as an OEM filter? Just curious. Just my $0.02

    Lawn Mower Maintenance

    I changed the oil & filter in my LT150 before I put it away last year. I pulled it out yesterday to look at air filter, belts and grease zerks. I need a new belt and some new spindle bearings. I will sharpen the blades and be good to go by next weekend. Probably won't need to mow for 4 or 5...
