    Too soon to buy a project car for my daughter?

    Daughter will be 14 this year. Maybe it's just me getting the itch to work on something but is 2 years in advance too soon? It would cost almost nothing to insure/inspect/register and could come in handy if we ever need a car while ours is in the shop. Looking at something with a Honda K24...

    Battery, Alternator, or Starter?

    Wife went out to go to work early this morning and the Van wouldn't start. Didn't appear to be any lights left on or doors ajar. I went out shortly after and measured the battery at 12.4v. Tried to start it and just a single click with no revs from starter. Charged for an hour while I got...

    What does the long term data look like on DI engines?

    DI has been around long enough now where there should be some good feedback on how the top end holds up without getting a gasoline bath every revolution. Will a DI car need valvetrain cleaning if left alone after a certain amount of miles? Engine is fantastic now not burning oil whatsoever...

    Cheap filters from rockauto okay?

    Currently have a gift card for rock auto and I it's been 2 years since I did engine and cabin air filters so I figured it's a good time to buy them. Looking at the different parts they offer it seems prices really vary from $3 to $20 from what looks like all are paper filters. Some brands...

    URL/Links being treated like ads?

    Seems any URL or link myself or others post are being blocked by ad blockers. This is probably an issue with the chrome extension (Ublock origin) versus the forum site itself but I thought I should make you guys aware if you see a black empty space after you post a link like this...

    Lost Heat Shield over cat, no big deal?

    I noticed this was hanging by a thread on our van. I worked it back and forth a few times and it came free. The top half protecting the vehicle floor is still very solid and in tact. This was the bottom piece. Should I worry about replacing it or just leave it be.

    Any chance at Warren 0w30?

    Any chance we'd ever see supertech/amazon/kirkland in a 0w30 flavor? I think I'd run this year round in my vehicles especially in my Van which is loving the 5w30 Supertech I filled in the spring that's not burning a drop all of a sudden. It's probably a longshot but one can dream right?

    BPC safe these days for electronics/plastics?

    With Isopropyl alcohol costing what it does, I've been using brake parts cleaner to clean flux and other dirt from PCB's. Specifically I use Supertech because it's $2 something a can. I haven't seen any residual issues like peeling or plastic deterioration. The boards actually look really...

    05 Odyssey worth PS pump replacement?

    So a couple years ago the pump was making a good amount of noise. Turned out the noise was just from faulty o rings and reservoir. I replaced both O rings, reservoir (all bought from Honda) and 3 quarts of fluid and it instantly fixed the noise and steering got noticeably better. Here we are...

    Dashcam direct wire question

    Bought a cheap dashcam on Amazon and I want to hard wire it so when the car starts, it turns on. I neatly tucked the wire down towards the front passenger kick-panel which has plenty of electrical options. I found a few wires that give 12-14v when the car has the key turned on and some only...

    Spots in the driveway

    Our van parks in the driveway mostly. As you can see there are a ton of spots. They aren't oily and it doesn't smell like much. I would assume air conditioning would make more of a large puddle. What could it be?

    Are 0w20 and 5w20 100% interchangeable?

    Any exceptions? Assuming both are SN plus is there any reason you shouldn't run one or the other? It's understood that 0wXX is the better option for colder climates.

    What's the proper oil for a push mower

    I'm just curious what's the actual oil spec you're supposed to use in a typical push mower engine. I always thought PCMO wasn't that great for mowers because it holds all the dirt in suspension where a filter would normally clean it out but with no filters on a typical push mower engine, what's...
