    Florida IRMA air fares

    I booked a flight to Tampa to check on my mother's winter place to see if there is any damage after the hurricane. I found it was cheaper to book First Class air fare than Economy. Weird dynamic pricing in play. Most flights into Florida are booked by returning residents. Shortage of cattle...

    Fram PH9837 Cut open. Ugh!

    2008 Saturn Vue 3.5 V-6 Just under 3000 miles on this run. 3rd oil change since son got this Vue from his aunt. Regular oil changes at the aunt's dealer previously. Two previous oil changes since getting it looked fine. Now, a sea of crud appears. Lots of waves in the pleats, but no ripping...

    Blue Mountain Filters revisited

    Some of you may remember my post about the Blue Mountain oil filters being sold for $1.09 at Lowes. I finally installed one on my son's Alero 3400 V-6. Ran it about 2000 miles and decided to change from a winter weight oil to a summer weight. Cut it apart and saw the following....not pretty...

    Too long on oil change?

    I just got back from a visit to my mother. I found out she hasn't changed the oil on my dad's car since he passed away three years ago. She drives his 02 Camry V-6 in the winter (her car is a convertible with regular dealer oil changes). Mostly short trips, less than 20 miles round trip, often...
