    20,000 Mile Oil Analysis

    The jeep guys rave about 0-20 Ap as being one of the best. I don't know much about numbers but the comparisons I saw to 5-30 had the AP looking pretty tough to beat.

    You have no stash and someone gives you $25 for an OC

    I'd go to family farm and home and get (mag1). The " Walmart oil" minus the Walmart label and then buy an oil filter that said the word Bosch and not the word Fram on it.. But that's just me. I'd also buy the filter from menards and probably stand in line with contractors who work hard who are...

    I've not been a member long but I know these are the questions that this board longs for with only one unanimous answer. Walmart!

    Go to quick lube place or keep running oil?

    Take own oil to a dealer that's running a special. My local ford dealer has a $20 oil change with free rotation. I know they're hoping they can get you in there and convince you your Johnson rods bad but still a good deal even if I brought my own oil.

    Post your latest small engine oil change

    Hustler zero turn, Kawasaki fr691v, drained peak 10-30 synthetic and put in M1 hm 10-30 synthetic. Bosch 3330 filter. Snapper walk behind, Kawasaki 6.5. Drained peak and put in M1 hm but left the filter. This mower maybe sees 12 hrs a year so I only change the filter every 2.

    How do you get 'fresh' tires at Costco?

    Are fresh tires better? I guess I don't get the demand here and am glad I don't work in retail.

    Rental Review - 2020 Nissan Altima 2.5S

    I've driven an Altima since 03 and they've been great. My current 09 Is an oil burner, but only use it to run to Detroit airport, park it and leave it set for a couple weeks. Even at that I've never replaced anything but brakes and tires. I spend half the years in rentals and I'm not a Camry...

    Flush Nissan Rouge

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted by JTK</div><div class="ubbcode-body">D1dad, I think it has more to do with how the transmission routes fluid differently based on temperature that effects a proper fluid level read. I never bought into the fluid itself...

    Flush Nissan Rouge

    I know all fluids expand but much has been made like cvt doubles in volume. Well not really but you get the point. I checked the dipstick before and after and the 4.5qts were dead on. Now my wife's Murano (2007) was overfilled from the factory and I honestly didn't look at that fluid for the 1st...

    0w20 vs 0w30 ?

    I run maxlife 0-20 synthetic and have no complaints. I also picked up quite a bit of Mobil 1 Ap on clearance and the numbers on it are phenomenal. If you wanna run 5-30 I'd recommend PP which has always seemed very thin to me.

    Flush Nissan Rouge

    But the exact same amount going in that came out is a successful exchange in my eyes. The Nissan tech that replaced my transmission told me to drain it cold and to set the new fluid along the car the night before and to do exactly what I did. He also said that failure in these things had little...

    Flush Nissan Rouge

    I ran mine 80 mph on a trip back from Costco and drained it hot then let it set in the house overnight and the fluid did not reduce at all from the 4.5 qts that came out. I put 4.5qts back in and no issues. I used Idemitsu type N from amazon. $45 for a 5qt jug. Looks exactly the same as oem...

    CVT Fluid recommendations

    I just did my new cvt at 25k to prevent having another failure. I used Idemitsu from amazon, type N. Nissan forums say they make the Nissan fluid and it looked the same as the oem fluid I had from the dealer and it was only $45 for a 5qt jug. I just did a drain and fill and it took 4.5qts. I...

    I need the best penetrating oil

    I bought gasoila free all on amazon and it's the best stuff I've ever used. My 2000 f250 needed new tanks straps and after 20 yrs in ohio salt filled winter roads I figured I was in for an all day deal. I sprayed the bolts for a couple days prior and they came right out. The front strap from...
