    50w drive train oil

    Would a non-synthetic 50w drive train oil that is TO-4 rated be suitable for us in a 10-speed Eaton transmission in a semi-truck? The truck and transmission are 2002 model years and are well past any kind of warranty coverage. The truck is only driven locally and this time of year only drives...

    coolant filter

    Has anyone ever added a coolant filter to a passenger car/SUV? I was looking under the hood of the Grand Am my wife drives in the summer/spring months and it seems like it would be pretty easy to add in there.
