    What grease for my spicer u-joints 2500 diesel?

    Mystik - for me never dries up. In the old days, my dad applies whatever he have on his grease gun. A word of caution: Do not get into a flooded area where your car get stranded where water will get inside car's u-joint. You need to re-grease your u-joint immidiately using grease fitting. If not...

    Automotive Electrical vs Home Electrical

    Hello I'm the OP. I contacted an electrician and he told me he's going to do it for $50.00 just for the connection. All I need to buy is a 50 ft 3 wire outdoor underground cable (Southwire brand), an electric digital timer and a 3-Way Straight Blade Grounding Plug. He said it will only take 30...

    The worst thing that I see around "Assembled in USA of Global Components." It just does not make any sense to me. Yeah it is assembled in USA but are made in inferior components (majority of chinese parts)

    Best and worst spark plugs and why.

    IMHO Champion coppers are the best. I've got it in 84Isuzu Pup, could easily get pass through 50K miles or more. Just require re-gap every 20K. It is also the original plug on my old B&S push lawn mower. The plug outlasted the 4 wheels of my push mower.

But why is it the price of their M1 synthetic oil keeps on dropping through all these years and yet the price of crude oil is way more expensive now that it was back in...

    Will Mitsubishi Leave the US Market?

    Mitsubishi is very much alive in the Philippines and in some parts of Asia. Their Xpander, Montero, Strada & L300 is a big hit over there. I like the aggressive & bold look of the Xpander & Montero. I wonder these vehicles are not available in the states (except for L300 which are built for...

    It looks like you are in the clearance section. If those filters sells for $1.00 or less for clearance, I believe the store manager made a smart move to take those items out of the box. The store manager was thinking buyers would swap in an expensive oil filter such as Fram Ultra, Mobil 1, etc...
