    Battery judgement based on analyzer

    I decided to purchase a battery analyzer (harbor freight digital one) with winter coming up and wanted to know what real-world experience you have in regards to using the information to replace your battery. The method I've used the 27 years I've owned vehicles is to wait until the day it...

    Nissan Frontier ignition switch

    I am trying to determine if I need an ignition switch or the key cylinder assy. The symptoms are my battery is going dead and after recharging it overnight I hooked it back up and tested it with a meter. It was pulling about 6 amps and then I could hear a relay click and it would drop to .2...

    Napa pro select 27145 failure

    Changed oil after 5000 miles on my 2006 Camry. Oil was the last of my nexgen 5w30 stash and the filter was a Napa select 27145. The filter has a tear at the bottom of the seam. Top side looked ok, but a lot of glue. Date code 060415 E1. Put back in Mobil super HM 5w30 with the last of my...

    Tire storage

    Couldn't pass up some Cooper CS5's from the recent DTD sale, but our current tires still have some service left. Thinking of having them installed just before next winter. Is there any precautions I should take if storing in a crawl space ( I don't think the wife will stand for them to stay in...

After putting about 500 miles on the new oil I had to leave for a business trip for 2 weeks and the car sat without being started. After...

    Purolator L14477 cut open

    Below filter is off an 06 camry using Mobil supra 5W-30 conventional with about a 5300 mile OCI. Inspected closely and couldn't find any tearing. After taking the pics I pulled the pleats apart trying to find any issue and all seemed good, although I thought the media seemed a little brittle (I...

    52-050-02 yellow cut open

    This is the kohler filter from my 25 HP craftsman mower. I change them once a year (30-40 hours). Oil was Mobil super 10W-30. I'm sure it did it's job fine, but looks like it was constructed quite a bit cheaper than the black painted filter with the same part #. <img...
