    Fumoto valve defective

    I purchased 2 new Fumoto valves. One for my Corvette and another for my Civic. The Civic one won’t even open up. The lever is messed up and won’t work. I am sending it back. I am not too impressed but will keep the one for the Corvette and use it as a test mule.

    Anyone have any input on a harmonic balancer going out on a 2005 Corvette? The car has 70,000 miles and it's sounds like a frequent problem. It seems to me GM should have figured it out long ago how to make a decent product. Are the aftermarket balancers any better and to they have problems...

    2014 Ford F-150 trans fluid change

    I am having a qualified automatic transmission shop change my synthetic AT Fluid in my Ford F-150. It costs $249.00 and they drain the torque converter too and they use synthetic fluid. The truck has 51,000 miles on it and it shifts great. I think the manual states change at 60,000 miles...

    1999 Buick LeSabre

    Look at how the car didn't rust from the filter area being wiped off after oil changes. I changed the oil on my moms car and was surprised at the lack of rust in this area. Only 88,000 miles on the car but it's getting rusty. Plus I had to add 3/4 of a gallon of anti freeze so I think the...

    St oil filter Pentastar

    I bought the Walmart ST filter for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee it cost only 3.00. It is different than the Mobil 1 filter so I didn't use it. The Jeep Pentastar 3.6 has 6004 miles on the oil and filter. The OLM was at 23 percent. I didn't use the ST filter because the end is different than...
