    Difference between plugs

    Does anyone know what the difference is between NGK ZFR6F-11 and NGK ZFR6F-11G? The manual for my wife's 2011 Liberty says to use the 11Gs, but I am seeing the 11s as a stocked item in most places and the 11Gs as special order. After looking at NGK's website I can't really tell what the...

    Oil recommendations for 07 Equinox and 08 Avenger

    Looking for thoughts on what I should be putting in my vehicles. The first is an 07 Chevy Equinox 3.4L with 180k miles. It has a small oil leak then doesn't leave any spots on the driveway, but I can see a damp spot when I am under it doing a change. It is driven about 90% of the time on the...
